    Spotted at target in edina mn. I know the combo suits aren't new, but is the trailer and blade a sighting? @Black Convoy

    The combining guys look really cool in person, but the price is a bit high for me. Definitely hope they show up on pulse clearance

    Despite being one of my favorite characters in the show, Nightshade's toy never really did much for me. But Jawbreaker- now that's a figure I can have fun with! I'd love to pick up a second one and get it painted in G1 Dinobot colors. IMG_2646.jpeg

    These toys are so much fun. So many combinations you can do with both sets. I hope we get more of these.

    I definitely wanna see more of these. These give me so much nostalgia from transformers energon. I'd love to see a pack with optimus prime and megatron so that we can have an official optimus and megatron combiner. I'd also love to see some Decepticons in this line like Starscream, Soundwave, Nova storm, Swindle, etc.

    Shout-out to Hasbro for making the G1/BW-based guys look basically like their original selves so I don't feel a pressing need to buy any of them.

    After over a year of photos of my collection, here are the figures from the (mostly) most recent toylines that I got this last year.
    I may not have Paramount Plus, but I've seen EarthSpark's first season up to the Home 2-parter. It seems like Transformers as animated media might finally be moving forward, not only exploring the aftermath of the Transformers war in dramatic sequences, but also confronting topics concerning life itself that I've only seen the likes of in a few recent animated movies. And like those movies, this series is exceptionally well done & I'm invested in just about every recurring character & more: the thoughtfully curious Terrans, the rest of the Malto family, the traditional while expressive Autobots, the struggling Decepticons (war-weary & war-consumed), & the few truly sinister, antagonistic forces lurking in the background. I'm excited to see how the season's going to end &, while I wish Optimus, Megatron & Bumblebee got better toys, I'm so glad the Terrans have so far had decent to great toys & I look forward to completing the Malto family at least. I'm also glad most of the other 'bots & 'cons are mostly similar to existing figures, of which I have some, as I'd love to reenact scenes someday. Lastly, I highly enjoyed taking the Terrans for photo ops on trips this summer.

    At long last the end is at hand, as I've covered every toyline that I've collected in photo galleries. Of course, during 2023 I've gotten figures from older toylines after my previous collection galleries were done, with the only toyline galleries with figures from the last year being the concurrent ones & the WFC Trilogy. So there's actually the inevitable group photos of all of my figures from 2023 that will show the last figures of my entire collection as of this last year. I will have that overview & gallery, plus a tour of how my whole collection is displayed & stored, & finally the total count of all my figures in my collection as of 12/31/23, within this month. Thanks to everyone who enjoyed seeing my collection posts & retrospectives, especially to any who may have waited for my collection photos post-by post.

    1st acquired: EarthSpark deluxe Twitch, Hasbro Pulse warehouse sale, 3/27/23.
    Newest atm: Collaborative Optimus Prime (VNR Volvo), Hasbro Pulse seasons savings sale, 12/12/23.

    Most favorite atm: Warrior Thrash (for the accessory functionality & simple transformation.)
    Least favorite atm: Deluxe Nightshade (while I love their owl mode & weapon storage, their facial expression, as well as weak feet & knee joints hindering robot mode balance with their wings, bring them down.
    All these figures are rather great, though.
