    I got my "shipping soon" for the second (or third?) round of pre-ordered Gears. Cancelled my Amazon one since this is one is coming.

    Canceled my Magmatron. You all almost had me with these great reviews and pictures, but I came to my senses after the Nemesis impulse buy from BBTS.

    Yeah, now that it's moved up I need to decide if I really want him or not. Hmmm... I have the original and thought it was odd. Only played with it once and back in the box. lol

    That is indeed the way…. I had to dig deep on this one. Zero attachment to the character, but I’ve yet to see a review where he looked bad or didn’t look fun. If he’s still around for the next pulse sale or if DNA design comes out with some amazing kit for him, I’ll have no choice but to jump on it.

    Pretty much where I'm at. Sitting on Titan Nemesis in my PoL after missing her makes canceling Magmatron easier. If he is still around later this year, maybe but I'll end up going for Tidal Wave.

    Tidal Wave I really, REALLY, struggle with. He looks awesome, I like the character, but I don’t collect Armada and space is becoming a concern…so unless I can get him for like $100, I have to pass and even then I’ll be wringing my hands about where in the hell to put him (I have room for 2 additional detolfs or their equivalent and that’s all there is to it)

    Nemesis? Not a problem. She’s going on one of those Larkin’s Lair stands on top of a detolf, not actually inside one, eating up valuable bot real estate.

    With the way Hasbro has been reissuing Commanders, the likelihood of him being released again down the line is pretty possible too.

    For what it's worth, I don't know anything about Magmatron either, but being weak-willed where Transformers are concerned I cracked and bought him and he's pretty awesome. He's like a cross between a Transformer and a demon from the comic book Faust. He is a lewd dude.

    The winged head and body horror would also be an interesting nod to Go Nagai's Devilman. I believe there was an OVA where they showed demons possessing dinosaurs. Faust to me was Wolverine meets Batman with over the top violence gore among other things.

    oh yeah, Magmatron is great. He's a sick ass robot made of dinosaurs with a built in "dinorgy" mode. Can't wait to get mine.

    My bridge set arrived, and I found something that has really thrown me off. The weird extra gun for Soundwave is missing. Everything else is there - but the little space in the plastic is empty, and it's not anywhere in the box.

    On one hand, I want an entire set. On the other, that gun was pretty strange to begin with. And ultimately, I'd have to hope I could get a proper replacement, so I will probably live with it. But it's funny that, out of everything in the box, the kind-of worthless piece is the only thing missing.

    Email Pulse customer service and ask for a replacement.
