    So the Dollar General sale is valid. I got 7 blindpacks for about $20. I’ll have to hit up a few more and see what else I find tomorrow before the sale ends.

    Like Trap Jaw we get the mini-comic version of Roboto first. I assume this Scareglow won't glow in dark.

    The Ninjor was said to be a very rough proof of concept cobbled from existing parts just to get a idea of the look.

    Welp, now I know where the retooling/new molds budget for Halo is going.

    Gonna buy a bunch of Roboto, the attachments would look good with my B.A.T. customs!

    I ended up stopping by a Dollar General today and taking advantage of their sale.

    I haven’t been keeping up with Mega stuff, is there any chance of new TMNT sets any time soon?

    Not likely. They seem content to shove the line into Heroes wave fillers.

    In a better world, Mega would be able to make updated Battle Beasts.

    That’s what I feared. I recently got round to getting the Technodrome, would make me cry so many tears of happiness if we ever got a classic blimp or Turtle lair.

    With the NECA and Super 7 lines seemingly doing well I pray they reconsider.

    I have a feeling lego will get the license back before that happens.

    The blimp would be all right but I would rather have the mole pod and human Bebop. And a Casey Jones from the comics in color.

    I would also take few more characters. Even a Black Series style Tiger Claw.

    I am just so glad they put THREE different troop-builder figures in the previous halo blind bags wave: the grunt, elite and marine. It makes building armies SO much easier. I am hoping to find some grunts next time I'm in town.

    I have a feeling I'd end up spending way too much money on such a thing, or even if they decided to try their hand at making a Chima-esque line.

    Now if they could leave them in the blind bags and stay away from the Heroes line, that'd be great.

    I'm fine if its suppose to be a higher level enemy, like an Elite Ultra or Brute Chieftain, but not a rando mook like that Jackal Minor a couple waves back. I saw a whole BOX of Heros that was (Over the rock and through the bush) nothing but Jackal.

    Seems counterintuitive to give the guy wings perpendicular to the air flow while riding a sky sled. Considerable air drag right up to the point where he is yanked off the back of the sled.

    I also like how Zodak is "keeping the balance" by fighting on Skeletor's side against two and a half versions of HeMan while Mekaneck is doing his part by running the other way.
