    Cool, well considering that my Target preorder of Slag has an August release date this isn't that much of a shock hearing about them showing up a month before.

    It's also a safe bet to presume that some of these early releases at various retailers are purposely to get people out to the struggling ones in hopes that they'll come for the sighted figure but staying to get some bread, milk and toothpaste as well...

    As for this Slag sighting... That's good for those in VA but since my online purchase of Galvatron made it to my city before any at retail (They're just receiving Kingdom UM's at the Targets around here). I'll just sit back and wait for the preorder instead of wasting gas.

    Hope this means Amazon and/or Pulse will be shipping them out earlier than the Oct 1 date, but I doubt it. :confused:

    If this statement doesn’t end with a road trip across state lines where he looks for Slag, finds out more about himself, and learns to love life again, I’m going to be disappointed.

    The DPCI number for the assortment is the same as the previous assortment with grimlock.
    And grimlock has been seen in some stores again.
    The number could be for either assortment.

    it's not a "stupid PC name", it's a British term for "slut"

    it'd be like releasing a Transformer named "Whore" that turns into a spinosaurus or something

    We know why it changed, but "Slug" as an alternative is just really stupid.

    I cancelled my Slag preorder with Amazon and switched over to Target because of that release date. But the only reason I'm sticking with my Amazon preorders of Wreck-Gar and 2 Gnaws is because my remaining Amazon gift card covers most of it. And I'm not in as much hype to get those as I am another Leader class Dinobot.

    Side Note: It's also a pity that the DPCI number 087-06-5842 that's on the receipt of one of the pictures appears to be a generic one that shows up being connected to TF figures from over 3 years ago. So.. so much for checking Brickseek or Popfindr for it.

    Good old Slag. Who's name is the melted metal left over from his enemies who died from his fire breath in battle.

    Except in England where he's just a whore.

    You're not wrong, I guess "Slog" is technically taken though.

    Granted, would anyone give a shit about renaming the current Slog?

    People don’t care what the new name is they just complain that the renaming has happened.

    I admit I was confused for a minute when I saw the title. I wondered why anyone would make news about finding a slug in a plain field? And then I saw Slag in the picture. =-_-=
