    I love both figures even though they're not as good as they could've been.


    So close Hasbro....but you made some really questionable choices with these two.

    “- Kup: All things considered you did an amazing job lad. Amazing.
    - Hot Rod: Really?
    - Kup: No, you idiot. Look at me!

    His "shark mode" arms and legs look really wonky with where they're located. Had his arms been placed further down, and his legs placed further up, he would've looked more proportionate to me. Also, ball-jointed beast arms would've been great for more posing options.

    I still love him though, and once my TCP order comes in, I'll have three more of him. :lol

    That Sharkticon on the far right clearly has no idea that a little over half of the total carbohydrates in raw carrots are sugar (it's substantially higher if they are cooked just like tomatoes are).

    I mean Wreckgar is a voyager and if he stood up straight on that scale chart, he'd have about the same height and mass as Swoop

    Rodimus is pretty pricey but he is one of the most solid and fun mainline figures I've ever handled. He looks and feels amazing in both modes. The big, articulated hands are super nice, and he's very posable. The transformation is fun and intuitive yet complex enough that it doesn't feel underdone. There are some slight nitpicks here and there, but overall I feel like I got my money's worth

    You do realize that Hot Rod has a built in flip-out welder, so you don't need to give him Blurr's?

    I wasn't throwing shade :p , Swoop should be voyager height. I was trying prepare everyone that might be expecting Swoop to be as large as the others.

    I'm curious if Sludge will fit in a leader box without needing the neck/head detached. It's alt mode isn't really any larger in height than Grimlock's but that neck . . .

    I found Waspinator and SS86 Wreck-Gar at Wal Mart today. Wreck-Gar is pretty good, bigger than I expected.

    Rodimus Prime is worth it.

    Not all people with multiples cleaned out stores, considering there are only two per case.
