100%. Very strong figure. He and Slug are a different breed to their POTP counterparts.
I've ordered it too, and a couple of extra Eagles for good measure. It would be nice to know if they planned to do any comparable Thunderbirds/Captain Scarlet replicas in the same manner before falling too hard down that model kit hole.
I love a good build as much as the next man, but at my age it's much better to cheat and buy something predone that doesn't need as much time and work
Ah thanks InDemand…
That’s Ghostbusters spoiled lol even though I always had a feeling and seen stuff that alluded to it… but posting on social media the 2 pack without any spoiler tags or anything
Grimlock and Slug are everything.
Like, I just played with Slug 5 minutes ago and plan to just do it again after sending this message.
Seems Hasbro launched it today on a live stream, so they've clearly decided that spoilers aren't an issue...
IDT have had the decency to remove the post but it looks from the number of comments and emojis on it that a lot of ppl are annoyed
Was reminded of commander rodimus the other day...what did people think about it? Worth getting?
Had a toddler playing with some potp pretender-masters (did they have an actual name? Cant recall at the mo) with adult supervision. Said supervision panicked and came to tell me that "sorry, the tiny bots got lost and cant be found anywhere..."
I had a good guess that turned to be right, someone finally figured how to but the masters back in the suits
I can understand them listing the newest item, but can also understand the irritation.
As it happens, I'm not interested myself, so I don't know if it's actually a spoiler or not. It's possible IDT we're in a similar position.
It’s 100% the biggest of spoilers and perhaps a key plot point
as you say it’s not IDT’s fault, very tactless by Hasbro given film hasn’t been out long at all.
Look at the state of that packaging, did someone hide a while box in their prison wallet?
At least the Hasbro livestream had huge *SPOILER WARNING* graphics all over the screen and before the toys were revealed so if you didn't want to see them you could leave. IDToys just... put them up with no spoiler warning whatsoever. It's really bad form.
Can whoever posted the link to heroquest for £80 delivered post it once more please? I am thinking i might ask my Mrs to get it for me for Xmas… Cheers muchly
Ah, yeah, well then you'd also expect that they'd have flagged that to retailers too... if they didn't, it's a bit rum for them to seemingly exonerate themselves and simultaneously through retailers under the bus. If they did, then 'bad form' is an understatement for IDT just posting it.
Doubt we'll ever actually get to know the answer to that though, unfortunately
Depends how much you pay. Smyths have him for £69 shipped, which seems like a fair deal. Anything more than that feels a bit extortionate given the end result. Rodimus Prime has a lot of heft and complexity to him, but I get the sense that Hasbro made the transformation needlessly overwrought with excessive moving parts to justify the Commander price point. I'm still of the opinion that Hasbro could have streamlined the design and sold it at as a Leader figure, but you've got to milk it for what it's worth. So like I said, anything above £70 is overpaying.
That was me but sadly the store was quoted the wrong price by the supplier & has had to raise the price.
HeroQuest - Alchemists Workshops
I happened to pop into that store today for some hobby supplies. The owner is a TF fan & alternates some of his own figures on display. Animated Grimlock was on show today & it reminded me how much I loved that toyline.
Brought ALL my deskbots home today and added to the new cabinet:
Transformers Prime Season 1
Transformers Prime Season 2/3 (Predaking is guarding my ID card printer at work)
The Transformers Season 1 Autobots
The Transformers Season 1 Decepticons
The Transformers Season 2 Autobots
Misc Decepticons and Grimlock corner
And I think the marketing stuff called them Decoy Suits.
Those Misc Decepticons are about to have a very bad day
Yup, deal was both halves were needed to unlock Grayskull in tale and toy but anything worked with the toy lol. Origins Skeletor has the other half but in purple and the vintage head figures now come with their full swords.
And yet the release date for the Legends Hand and Skrull army builders are now 16/12, months earlier IIRC
Unless it's just the photo quality, that really looks like a mock up proto rather than an actual final box?
A mockup that's been sat on.
