That's a great looking shockwave render. I really hope they come out with a fig that looks some where close to looking that good. The shockblast figure looks somewhere in the neighborhood of that minus his huge gun hand.

That Shockwave looks amazing, but of course, being a diehard G1 fan, hopefully they will reverse the arms so his blaster arm is his left not his right :lol:

i found a MP SKywarp at Walmart!!!!!!!!!!! I had the hardest time, trying to get his head to go into Jet Mode... it was crazy. There's still about 3 more at the Walmart in North Miami, back wall clearance shelf. The Skywarp that I bought was labled 25, rung up as 30, but the staff gave it to me for 25 (not 30).


edit: alo picked up hardhead for 15 dollars. Twas a good day indeed.

Toyfair is tomorrow, but the TFCC has pics up in the member exclusive area. You didn't hear this from me, but they're also up on /toys... Again, I never told you this! :D

Most look pretty cool, though I don't like how the new Power Core Combiners 5 pack gestalts are essentially Energon Prime (1 transforming core, and 4 vehicle/limb drones), especially when Legends Devy is so damned nice and each fig there has all 3 modes. Oh well, I'll still buy em.

Wow Masterpiece skywarp like crazy at my local Wal-mart (Tempe AZ). I picked one up! They weren't stocked in the Transformers area, it was the "clearance" area.

Damn it, no go at my ghetto Walmart on Skywarp. They had a huge endcap full of the things at $60, now they are nowhere to be found. Anyone got an extra to spare? Lemme know how much, if so, shipped to L.A. Thanks!

So its getting a US release finally?!?!

At least its not a Walmart exclusive... Then again, ToysRUs is just about as bad as them as far as distribution goes.

I'm more scared about the price than anything, Starscream was $50, Skywarp was $60, and Grimlock being more fancy will probably cost $70. For $70 I can get a Soul of Chogokin.

That is true, as any Lego fan can tell you, TRU gouges the SHIT out of their prices.

If it's at the $60 price tag I can justify buying it. I spent $50 on Starscream and totally regret selling him, hell I even regret selling my DVD Masterpiece Prime.

One thing that's nicer than the Energon Prime combiners is that they don't have the dorky "hands" and "feet", which also happen to be dorky looking "weapons". Besides cluttering up the vehicles, they were a pain.

These look nice without them. So long as they're also a little more stable than the Energon combiners, I'm happy.

Thanks for the pics, Jen!

And yeah, Drift does look very nice.

I'm talking Energon Prime, how his power up mode was just his drones attaching to his limbs. The Energon Combiner teams were actually pretty good imho, though I agree with your assessment of the "hands" and "feet". Bruticus did a decent job (the hellicopter weapons in particular were pretty good hands), but Devestator and Superion pretty craptastic hands and feet.

All told, decent Toy Fair this year. Gonna be another expensive year...

There is no word on an MP Thundercracker, but I'm still hoping they'll release him. Maybe he'll be the Wal-Mart exclusive? Two MPs in one year would be phenomenal, but would also be death of our wallets!

I'd prefer a US release because Hasbro usually makes them more G1 accurate with the stripes on the wings. They'd probably fix that banana nipples issue that the Takara version had.

Thanks for the post, the Thrust figure is pretty good. I think I would pick that up if I saw it on the shelf. And while I appreciate the new combiners how is it that the original G1 combiner sets still look so much cooler? I dunno maybe I'm just old.

The Darkmount figure from the link someone posted also looks great. I didn't read the comic books growing up but I don't care I don't know who the character is. The mold from the little picture makes it look like a really nice fig.

That makes 2 of us. I don't get it. If Beast Wars and Car Robots/RID could get combiners right, why can't they now?

From the Marvel UK comics anyway, not that I read any of the TF comics.

Target, although all the stores around me are still at $9.98, so YMMV.

My local Target also has clearanced the remaining animated figures.

thanks! I was under the impression that he was released and I had missed it. If they released the other two then they have to release the 3rd...so that people can have the set. I definitely want to add Thundercracker to my collection.

I dont really see the logic there. Of the 3 original seekers, Hasbro only released Starscream and Skywarp in the Classics line. The only way for you to get Thundercracker would have been to get the Botcon exclusive or the Japanese Gentei exclusive. And considering the fact that MP Skywarp is now being discounted to $15 at a lot of Wal-marts (I found 30+ last night at 3 Wal-marts), coupled with the fact that MP Grimlock will be a TRU exclusive, I doubt Hasbro will be doing any more Masterpiece figures for a while.
