Did this canceled? You cant even look at it on the website. Some guy on Ebay says he has them and is selling them for $75 but has no pics.

Damn, I want this SOOOOO bad. I just got 2 of the Optimus Prime 20th anniversary super deluxe talking figures for $60 apiece.

I also got the 20th anniversary Starscream, Hot Rod, and Mirage figures, but they are totally different from the originals.

Now I notice Jetfire and Grimlock on the back of that box for Soundwave (along with Mirage). When did those release???

Has anyone picked up this figure? I haven't seen it at any TRU's and I've been checking them out almost daily the last 2 weeks because of their big clearance on games.

Speaking of awesome Transformers, have you guys seen these?

http://www.tfw2005.c...splay.php?f=109

Part of a semi new line that are homages to the G1 sculpt... I got lucky and found a Grimlock tonight (out of 35 or so figures on the pegs) and the thing is AMAZING, just take a look at it in the link above.

I also really liked (but didn't buy) Starscream and Bumblebee as well. Grimlock was one of those figures I've wanted for a long time, and now I got i've true Grimlock that's an awesome homage to the original.

Now if Soundwave ever came out, all I'd really need left is Blaster...

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Yea, I definitely want that Optimus vs Megatron pack too.

Grimlock is definitely awesome, I had to search racks upon racks and finally found the only one there. I debated it for a minute, and I was like "Well, what the Fuck, it's Grimlock, I may never see another one".

It's sad to think that Wave 3 is just two repaints (Cliffjumper and a robot who I forget who is a Starscream repaint) because this line has infinite possibilities. Just the fact they finally made a G2 Megatron, a Bumblebee, and a Grimlock is awesome.

I usually don't get many TF toys, all I really have so far is -

Unicron
Sealed 20th Anniversary Prime
Sealed G1 Re-release Prime
Sealed G1 Re-release Starscream
Cybertron Starscream
Sealed G1 Re-release Hot Rod

And then some random misc. toys, like an alternator and some cybertron stuff. I think I've also got Scourge somewhere in a box in my garage (that one was badass).

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Have you seen any pics to wave 3 yet?

I also got just a few. Sealed G1 re-release Prime (japanese I think) and the 20th anniversary prime from last year or so. I love the alternator series. I got Grimlock, Optimus Prime (red dodge ram) and Nemesis Prime (black dodge Ram *Thanks Ma12kez :D)

Not yet, and I've only heard of those two figures being the only one in the wave. Apparently, at Botcon 2006 alot of ideas were tossed around and they mentioned figures they'd like to do (Jazz was one of them) but with the movie coming out, it seems Hasbro is just going to focus on that.

That Nemesis Prime is awesome by the way... it's an SDCC exclusive apparently so it's a bit pricey for me ;)

I never even knew they made an Optimus Prime alternator... is it still easy to be found? I always see stacks of alternators at my Wal-Mart's but it's always the really early figures.

I've got Smokescreen and kind of lost interest in the line.

The OP alt isn't too hard to find if you keep you eyes peeled. They move quickly but not instantly from the shelves. You'll find it in the newer fishbowl packaging. It's a bright red truck so it's hard to miss ;)

Pics of the new packaging? Like I said, all I ever see is tons of old school packaging. I bought Smokescreen but never opened him, to be honest I wasn't really that impressed with him and never did get around to returning it.

Looking through the list they definitely got alot better as they went on... Dead End, Shockblast, Wheeljack, Jazz, Optimus Prime... those ones look awesome.

Mirage is out there also. It's a Ford GT and pretty kick ass.

On this coast, Target, Walmart, K-mart, TRU and Fred Meyer are your best bet for Transformers. I'm not sure what the case is for Florida.

It seems the line got pretty awesome as time went on.

Is Mirage / Grimlock / Wheeljack / Shockblast still in stores, or did I miss the boat? I see most of them came out in 2005...

You missed that boat. Shockblast is pretty awesome in my opinion.

Here is a site that will give you an idea of what's available currently. Alternators are on to "Assortment 2" (newer packaging), so check that out:

Ah, no biggie, at least I still have a shot at OP.

Thanks a ton!

Between this Grimlock I bought tonight, this Optimus Prime, and if they ever bring out this Soundwave, I'll be doing pretty good for TF figures.

Those Alternators are freaking AWESOME. If you have a Fry's near you Roufuss, that's your best bet. They actually have a TON of Transformers, from the 20th anniversary Optimus Prime to the "Classics" and the Alternators. They had them all on sale a couple of weeks before Christmas. I've also seen them at various Targets. Toys R Us is not a good place to check, unless it is a ghetto store.

I still have about 90% of the original G1 figures released in the US. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line I got all the empty boxes tossed out tragically, along with most of the papers/documents/techspecs. And I used to keep them all meticulously. Don't know what happened to them, but my dad threw out all the empty boxes for my Transformers, Robotech, Godaikins, Japanese robots, GI Joe, etc.

One of these days I'm just going to buy a complete collection of the Japanese re-release figures they put out a few years back. It sucks that we can't get a decent Megatron in the US due to the close resemblance to a gun. The original is an amazing replica of the Walter P38. Glad I still have mine.

I saw a ton of the Optimus Prime Dodge Ram right before X-Mas so I'm sure it wont be too hard to find if you keep an eye out. Nemesis Prime was a repaint of Optimus:

I encourage everybody to support the Classics line as much as you can, we've still got Devastator, Cliffjumper, Ramjet, and the second wave of mini-cons to look forward to.

Since the TFs are made in China, places like Hong Kong and Singapore are always quick to get them before the US and Japan does. The "release" date for the set is March, but stuff is known to come out early.

Yea, I definitely want that Optimus vs Megatron pack too.


I read Dave's Transformer Page -- he does reviews of Transformers -- and this double pack doesn't sound so hot. Here's the link to his page and here's the link to this review. Summary: Megatron's OK and Prime is awful. I won't be buying it.

I buy most of the new Transformers, but I don't want to buy everything, so if something is awful I just don't bother. So far, I've been really happy with the new Classic line and the Alternators.

Roufuss, definitely try to find Mirage. Awesomeness all around. Alternators Optimus Prime is okay, but not the best. The bumpers keep falling off mine.

You might get lucky at Target -- I picked up Meister on clearance for $14. They're also clearancing the 6 inch Titaniums. Of these, Scourge, Jetfire, and Thundercracker are worthwhile (Optimus Prime and Megatron are awful).
Now playing: Some Game I Last Played Months Ago (DS), Ancient Game I Tried Once (PS3), Why Do I Never Update My Signature? (360), Backlog Assassins (iPad)

Yeah, the Ops x Megs pack isn't so hot, especially when you compare it to the other figures in that line. Optimus got the good robot mode and Megatron got the good alt mode.

Someone should start a TF Toy topic in the OT forum.
