    I got weird wolf in and I may need to buy another. The packaging is too nice. Love the retro of it...

    Skullcruncher is badly in need of a slight retool and recolor into Sewer Prime.

    Wait - they've actually used the TR faceplate for the box front head photo but he comes with the LG head, right? That's hilarious - and yet still kinda-accurate for G1 packaging shenanigans! :lol

    I saw them in store about 3 weeks ago, never saw them again. Might have came and went, unless a restock is coming?

    Walmart.com frustrating me recently as well, all the retro Joe stuff is over priced as well, even the recent/current waves.

    Really wanted to get Chromedome without the ill- fitting IDW bat wing head, but I guess that ship has sailed :(

    Found wave 1, but no wave 2 so far. I’m only interested in the bots.

    Here’s the link for Chromedome. Just check before you go to TFW everyday (as a habit) and you’ll get it. It comes back in stock once in a while at $20 too. Also, I know a member here willing to help you get one at cost, you’ll have to pay the shipping too.

    A little late to the party, but got the retro Brainstorm. Have to say the packaging is beautiful!! Please re-release both Snapdragon and Apeface (without the battle damage) in this retro package!! Absolutely loving it!

    I've been saying for years that they just need to go back to the vintage packaging style for Generations PERIOD and collectors will buy two of everything.

    Somebody did a custom of that very thing a couple or few years ago...I seem to recall it was well done. I'll see if I can dig up a pic. That's one of the first things I thought of when I saw the TR Skullcruncher mold. Haha.

    Welp, I found a Highbrow at a local walmart for my buddy so I just cancelled my web order. If anyone still needs it, I hope they put it back up soon.

    I caved and picked up Chromedome and Brainstorm this morning.

    CD's face was sloppily painted IMO. Is this common among this re-release or is this isolated to my copy?
