    Ironically I've seen Elita-1 several more times than Hun-Grrr.

    Got my pre-order in for Alpha Trion/Landmine at HLJ. Screw waiting for retail this time, it's a long ass wait to get him but at least I'll get him. I think that's one of the good things about the unification, can't find the Hasbro, there's always the Takara.

    I'm in Houston, and I've only been able to find wave 2 stuff at my local comic book store. Seriously, I can't find any POTP stuff, except for wave one.

    Hasbro doesn't care where their toys go, so long as all the stock leaves their warehouse they call the line a success. They could literally sell an entire toyline to 1 scalper and be happy. (Meanwhile, said scalper charges everyone else $400 per deluxe, $800 for a voyager, etc).... We know their distribution system is broken, and they have no interest in fixing it. What pisses me off is Walmart's mandate "thou shalt not allow online sites to have early pre-orders up before we get toys out"....

    Fire/Novastar's looking really nice. I'm hoping I can find her, but seeing as she's the Slugslinger of PoTP... Welp...

    I really like Inferno's combined mode. Does anyone know if the colour layout for it homages anything, or is it original?

    Wow, Novastorm.

    Even though it's a repaint of whatever is on the combiner's leg (Chromia?) I haven't seen this mold before.

    Damnit, now I want it.

    Hmmm. Ok if Hasbro's Inferno has that white chest for the combiner I might get and some part-swapping with Pyra Magna. I need to see how both she and Vicky would look withe Defensor's chest piece.
