    Speaking of 3rd party, it's time for Takara to get off their cans and gave us some more 86 movie bots. I really want a Springer!:) . With all the redistribution going on with Dinobot I would love to see a Blitzwing that doesn't look like a giant Tonka toy or is inclined to lean over or fall back.

    I think we’re safe waiting for a MP Springer, Kup, and Arcee. It’s just taking longer but TT will perfect them before releasing. There’s been a real change since MP Inferno. TT just keep upping themselves with each release.

    had to click the show ignored content link to see what you were talking about and what you were replying to. Yeah I really need to stop clicking that link.

    Something in that description is making me imagine Mirage and Deepcover as a Napoleon Solo-Illya Kuryakin team now... back to back, looking over their shoulders, guns raised... damn, why didn't Mirage have more character development?

    I don’t have the show ignored option any more. I assume it’s because someone who I ignored blocked me. Awe. Now they won’t see all my cool shitposts.

    I'd go for Shockwave, unless the light purple bugs you. Dunno when or if Takara will make a toy colors/darker purple Shockwave. But otherwise, it's a great figure.

    The Coneheads are just OK. If you're not a super fan of Seekers/Coneheads or a completist, I wouldn't bother.

    I love the coneheads, but if you can't get all three definitely go for Shockwave. He's in my top 5. Have some batteries ready and some Future for a loose hip

    Thanks for the input. I think I may pass. Space is almost as big a deal as money and none of these guys I small. Besides, Sunstreaker is coming down the pipe soon and that is a def. must have Maybe if this price is offered 6 months from now and no other G1 autobot is offered on the horizon . . .

    Yeah, I'd save money/space for Sunstreaker, he looks pretty great. With space an issue, you can't go wrong with a carbot. Shockwave will be around.

    ...shockwave’s substantially smaller in-hand than i pictured him, but i’m sure his lavender color contributes to that impression...

    I quite like the TT Shockwave, but overall I think he’s middle of the pack. There are some very cool elements to his leg transformation, but his image isn’t going to lend itself to a complex sequence. He’s very much modelled on the cartoon presentation, who is nowhere near as impressive as the Marvel comic version. I think that’s really the core of the frustration with that particular figure.

    I just wish I had waited to pick up the Coneheads now rather than pay the full (inflated) price when they came out. Ah well, you win some, you lose some.

    As long as people are talking about deals in this thread also, I'll cross-post my pitch:

    "I'm just gonna throw it out that I'm (always) on the hunt for the following accessories--with the Black Friday sales in full effect, maybe somebody will purchase one of the following toys and wanna part with the extra bits to make that crazy price even crazier! Eh??

    From Delta Magnus I want Marissa Faireborne and (at least one) blue goggles face.

    From Roadrage I especially want the toy-style pistol--also keen for Soundblaster and the alternative outfit Raoul. (I would also be interested in the stand.)

    Same deal for Loudpedal (tho I can't find him on special anywhere.)

    From the 'Supreme Commander Optimus Primal' I would love the mutant face and the flail. (The other swords are of interest to me as well...)

    From Artfire I'd love to purchase the Targetmaster (I'd pay $30).

    If anybody is keen for a team up I'll likely pay (approximately) $10 per accessory (give or take based on size/urgency).

    PM me if you wanna work out a team-up! ;) "
