    Maybe next week for the last day of the sale? Those things never sell out without a sale, and I will not cave on the Trainbots at full US price!

    Yeah, time to empty out my pre-loaded cart and get ready for Thursday (final 2024 Legacy wave pre-orders!), lol.

    In the back of my mind I knew stuff I wanted was too new to go on sale, even though they are for sure peg warming like hell.

    At least I have the next Pulse sale to look forward to (and/or be disappointed with again, lol). :thumb

    I guess they plan to drip-feed the Joes I want… so I can’t hit $75 unless I wait for them all (while they sell out). The EE sale would’ve been a better bet, less % off but triple picks for me. I think this is where premium and I part ways - I don’t see myself breaking even on a re-up. The sales were a no-brainer. The outlet; however, isn’t remarkably different from random sales on amazon. TF exclusives are gone. GIJ exclusives are going fan channel (the polite way of saying not-B&M), which they rightfully should bc they are awesome!!!

    Grabbed another Antagony, a G2 Laser Cycle and an extra Detritus to swap the wheels onto United Hound. This sale is definitely one of the weaker sales I've seen since Pulse started but I still managed to find some goodies.

    New additions gave me just enough barely enough to meet the mark. Just shy of $77 before the sale.

    Was antagony ever in an episode of Beast Wars? I tend to only collect show appearance characters as I don't have room for all the deep cut obscure ones but I can't remember her.

    Nope. I believe she was an early Botcon character.

    Ah, so a "wink wink, nod nod" easter egg release. There was a time when I just got back into TF around Siege when I'd buy it for sure. Now I'm just about out of display space so I think I'll pass lol. Happy for those that wanted her though.

    The generation selects released during the WFC trilogy also had much more effort put into them. Nightbird, Transmutate, and Rotorstorm had unique heads. The power dashers got this treatment despite being even more obscure than convention exclusives. They even went out of their way to retool Black Roritchi to remove the antennas despite being animation inaccurate. Plus we also got way more. Artfire, Galacticman, Spin-out, just so many bonus characters. If there was an obscure redeco of a character's toy, it would get made. Redwing and Exhaust are some of my favorite figures of all time despite being based on some of the most obscure characters in the franchise. If Antagony was released during Kingdom, she would have included a new Comic accurate head instead of the strange Scavenger head.

    It seems all the effort has gone into the store exclusive capsule lines, which makes it that much harder to get excited for these redecos. There have been some fun toys in those lines, but having them be store exclusives to retailers that could not care less about actually distributing their extremely limited numbers just makes it that much harder to get excited for them. The only thing worse than hunting them at the big chains is hoping enough show at the clear-out stores that the scalpers do not hoard them. Maybe GS did not sell well enough to justify continuing while Brick and mortar pay out that much more for scarcity. It is a shame since it means Windrazor and BW Razorclaw may be Walmart exclusives that are impossible to get because they are part of the second wave of their exclusive set.
