So are we taking bets that the $159 Omega Supreme will be found in dollar clearance stores a year from now like Trypticon was for $70?

Wave 2 of WFC: Siege are hitting Meijer shelves over this past weekend!

I managed to pick up Chromia, Prowl and Sixgun, who is absolutely as awesome as you think he is. Great poseability, tons of options, sharp detail and that Warpath Red plastic.

Chromia has the best of the ladyformer's compactness for their otherwise ungainly windshield--folds up to half the length and locks in using the front wheel panels to form a solid backpack for a change.

Prowl feels almost anorexic in spots, particularly his thighs compared to his calves. There's a bracing panel that swings out for his heel, but i leave it tucked in because I swear it looks like he's wearing a clog or some gaudy thick-heeled designer shoe.

His alt mode is slick though, and I love the look through his rear windows of all the interior.

I read this literally minutes after getting home from Meijer without checking the TF section... fuuuu lol

Sounds like Ironhide is the shortpack or the most desired. Good to know Wallyworld has them too--I'll check one on the way home tonight. Though neither of mine ended up having the classic minifigs. EVER.

Did any show up your way Z?

Nope never saw any either.  I've all but given up getting TF's from retail.  Been lucky to get most stuff from Amazon over the past year or so.

Admittedly, I have too. Amazon, Hasbro Pulse for the Mirage wave (3?), BBTS for ones I might have overlooked in the past.

However, I'm a little bothered by my Ironhide--he was loose in the box, but looked fine, no package manipulation (the tape was perfect on all sides, nothing removed). Opened him up, realized when I transformed him into his alt mode a hidden leg panel was missing, as were the instructions!

Has anyone dealt with Hasbro customer service on such issues, and do they exchange them?

Also, I feel kinda bad sending the fella back--I mean, he's going to get junked and I don't like that idea (yes, I'm conscious about the environment) all over a panel and instructions.  But I'm a completist too. So I'm torn on it.

Man that sucks.  Where'd you get it?  I've never tried contacting Hasbro themselves, but I've gotten damaged figures (luck of the draw I guess) from Amazon twice.  Once they had a replacement in stock they shipped me, the other time the fig was out of stock so they refunded me (and the 50.00 Age of Extinction Dragonstorm at that!), but both times they didn't bother having me ship the figure back.  Could just be chance though.

I've never contacted Hasbro directly about issues, but from what I've seen on TFW2005, they suggest you return it to the retailer.

 

I did have an issue with Lionizer missing his effects piece in one of my Hasbrotoyshop orders. I emailed the and they sent a replacement figure out in a few days.

Turns out Hasbro's Consumer Care department is awesome! I at first called Pulse and they directed me to another number (1-800-327-8264) and explained my situation with ol' War Vet Red--told them I bought it three weeks ago, provided the info on the box, and although I may have a 1-in-4 chance (she did specifically request Ironhide, but said the factory isn't the best at reading in wave box specifics), I'll be getting a replacement in about 7-10 days!

 

Also, did anyone catch that Lego has a small 3-in-1 set that looks like Springer in style and color? I bought it a few weeks ago, modified it with the available pieces and got pretty close to his heli mode. I'll have to provide pictures later if anyone wants to see.

Nice glad they were so helpful!  Post pics of the Lego too, always appreciate cool custom additions/tweaks to official sets.

Apologies, but for some reason both CAG and the internet keep wanting to turn the personal photos upside down. Just turn your screen over.
