    id say its a soft confirmation. robotkingdom sold redwing at $35, we know he will be sold for $30 in the states so it stands to reason their firestormer set has a mild markup as well

    Hmm. Thanks for the insight @tigatron2002 !

    Originally I was gonna hang onto the battlemaster, but the temptation is so real now lol
    I'm not making any jumps just yet, but I'll keep it in mind that you want it.
    If someone else offers to dump theirs then by all means don't wait around on my account.

    The only thing holding me back is that as a general rule I hate splitting up sets lol

    Considering that some stories of Micromasters and cassettes imply that they ended up tiny due to war damage and lack of resources to fix them - I can see this being a pre-injury Slamdance quite easily. I also like that the robot colours can double up as Shattered Glass too.

    If they'd been super clever they'd have used a hollow white or hollow silver Autobot logo to allow that to work better and also too not block the jet cabin so much.

    I've already bought two G2 Sideswipe's this year I guess another one wouldn't hurt.

    You know what might have been a great idea that has not been done - which is repaint the Spychanger/Gobot Lamborghini Mould as G2 Sideswipe in the Black/red white deco, Those Spychanged look like they'd make a fun sideline about now as there seems to very possible ideas for repaints they could do with them now that wouldn't have been as obvious before. Prowl as Barricade for example. Perhaps that is something consider in a year or two as a nod to the 20th Anniversary of Car Robots / RID 2001.

    Not that i'd really expect much for that since they barely paid lip service to Beast Machines 20th. You'd think someone would release a 3rd Party Diagnostic drone or something to celebrate that. I suppose the best we got was a Cheetor in Cyberverse & a few more Beast Wars nods.

    I wonder if how they are getting the repaints in early means they won't suit being in the follow up line ?

    Hopefully that isn't the case - as I don't think people will be to dispointed to have Snapdragon and Scorponok to follow in 2020.

    I'd be willing to send Trenchfoot and the blast effect your way. I don't want Slamdance either. Are you in the US? Keep in mind that I'd probably be going with HP, BBTS, or TCP, so it may not be as soon as you want it - in case you are able to get it quicker!

    Wow this is nice, wondering if I could use this sideswipe as an autobot soldier on my diorama display.

    Ya this set looks good. I’m in. G2 sideswipe is one of my favorite childhood toys and the flywheels mold is my favorite figure from the siege wave 1 deluxes.

    Could it be that this is getting a somewhat limited release?

    Literally went out of stock right in the middle of my order.
    Was there, I selected my Paypal account, then BAM, out of stock.

    Not cool, Robotkingdom.

    I’d bet redwing will go live during sdcc, like how arcee, grotusque and combat megatron all dropped during a con

    That sucks

    Dislike, but surely better than being told it's out of stock after you've paid?

    Couldn't find the Skywarp set on there :-(
