    Funny thing about Vampires - if Sunlight kills them, moonlight is reflected sunlight, would not Moonlight kill them?

    Good point, but maybe it works like Medusa and it only kills when directed, rather than reflected.

    OH! Thank you guys for the news/heads-up. I was able to cancel him in time. I get why people want him, just not my cup of tea. Hope you guys get yours, though!

    Plus you have a dead vampire. Everyone’s happy. (Except the vampire.)

    I honestly dont get the appeal.

    1) Mindwipe was one of the weaker molds in TR, imo. The soft plastic on the wings will not last more than a few years, as softer plastics are typically low quality when it comes to Hasbro. Or maybe it's all soft plastics?
    2) Old school Dracula is popular now?

    I think a Frankenstein's Monster or Werewolf would be slightly more interesting... as it is, here we have yet another example of exclusivity as an excuse for purchase. At least when TMNT did this in early 90s, it was more a cosplay thing. This mash-up is straight up perplexing... But I guess Hasbro ran out of SW characters to crossover with TFs! :lol

    Not that perplexing. This is the 90th anniversary of the original 1931 Dracula film starring Bela Legosi. Its in honor of that groundbreaking film. I'm surprised they didn't do Frankenstein's Monster as well. Frankenstein with Boris Karloff was released the same year and is 90 also.

    In the meantime, Target.com is just having fun charging me and removing the charge over and over on my pre-order.

    They'll spread them out. If I recall the rest were going to hinge on the success of this first one.

    Well you see there's a perfectly good explana-

    I've always preferred the whole lordly type of Vampire and while I don't care the mold I still kind of want this, it's priced just a little too high for me, but I'd gladly pick up a clearance or sale copy.

    This Draculus released in Taiwan last or two months ago and it\'s still on shelfs everywhere. Don\'t know if it\'s b/c of the price or people just don\'t like it here.......

    I’m now seeing how we slaughter robot vampires….Draculus I can somehow be impossible to simply revive when Mindwipe is pretty much his cousin. I might pick this up come the holidays though.

    Yet here in Canada we get charged over $70.00 for this figure. Not worth it, hard pass.

    Sunlight is a Hollywood thing. In the older versions it just weakens them and kept them from shapeshifting.

    I'm a big fan of Titans Return (still think it's the best line since G1), it's a headmaster (one of my favorite play features) and it's a Universal Monsters homage.

    I honestly don't understand what's NOT to like about this release.

    The fact that it's not an actual headmaster. It's been retooled to eliminate that feature

    Just shipped. Saying Tuesday. Realistically it will be Friday or Saturday. UPS to USPS is always a mess.
