    @Awesomepow you got me looking at pictures of these things again. And I've convinced myself you're right... I need that Grindor!
    ...thanks?

    Grimlock
    Chopter
    Berserker
    Shockwave
    Sqweeks

    I have

    Shadow Armor Grimlock
    Blackout
    Crosshairs

    Maybe Berserker is also to be considered.

    Chopter... I meant Chopter, not Grindor.

    I do worry about the ol' "gonna just get my favorites" becoming "gotta get them all" scenario.

    Any car ones considered best, or worth recommending?

    How much do these things go for in other places in the world?

    Here's irrefutable proof that this Sqweeks toy was in the planning even before PCC came out!

    It's not just that - the way Hasbro has been handling the Tiny Turbo Changers (one catch-all UPC barcode for the entirety of Series 1 and 2) means most online retailers will never put up separate listings for Series 2, and I still haven't been able to gather a complete set of stock photos for Series 2 either:

    Even the Star Wars blind bags had different UPC's... this is the kind of half-ass phone-it-in that saw Universal play Darth Vader to Hasbro's Admiral Ozzel on the Jurassic franchise. That's why they're going all-in on getting their own IP onto the big screen, that way there's nobody to tell them...

    Some people think they have to spam the same exact comment everywhere, see also the various "kinggrimlock" accounts in various TTC-related threads.

    Why F don't you resign yourself to buying them all! Just go shoot it is 36 dollars or something. I learned that the first time round after immediately going to buy the rest after a taster. I mean comon you going pass on berserker cogman and ironhide. Leave drift all alone. Lockdown hello.:lol 

    Anyway, still cant find series 2, they could be out they just aren't out. No way i am buying them scalper price...

    A nearby TFW'er has a spare Chopter, but he's too far away to handoff and the shipping would be twice the price of the figure...

    Yes in general blind bags are not great for buying individually. Rare to find somewhere at decent price and has everything you want.

    I will wait, want the satisfaction of finding them and using ninja skills to pick up all the ones i want.
