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.

I'll admit I watched the video and actually found myself considering it, but that price tag.  My lord.

 

I also get why they chose this character, but it's not one I personally have to have.

 

I'll let y'all follow the link for the experience.

Ugh, so torn. Looks really nice and I'd love to have it, but that price is crazy (and I have the Lego UCS Millennium Falcon...)

I'm with you Z.  It looks fantastic. However, I have to know if those fingers are independently moving. I am NOT going to drop 2/3 of a paycheck and find out he's got a kung-fu grip with four fingers stuck together.

I'd also be eating a lot of hot dogs and spaghetti for a month.

EDIT: The video does have a brief shot of both the fingers and knuckles moving independently. Hopefully that stays through the final product.

 

In lighter news, I'm glad to see that Shockwave and Ultra Mags show up in Targets. I missed an opportunity on Free Comic Book Day to get ol' Cyclops for 25% off at my comic shop (they do that storewide every year)--they had him at the front door and we were ushered in through the side door; ultimately I didn't see him until on my way out, and wasn't going to go back in line for another 20 minutes just to save $10.

Going to tell you guys right now, I bought the Sail Barge, you won't be disappointed! Don't get me wrong, it's a lot of money but you'll regret missing out once it comes out.

Oooo, awesome you got to see it in person.  The pics I saw made it look... unstable.  I assume due to being a resin proto, but it gives me pause. 

 

I saw on TFW2005 they were going to do a live video transformation and canceled it (I assume due to concerns of the robustness of the proto), but I'm also concerned it'll be huge but super simple shellformer...  Anything you see indicate otherwise?

Amazon’s getting a lot of the redecos and some exclusives, including a real Apeface who still looks like one of the most ungainly triple changers—nay, Tf’s of all time, but it’s the redeco for Slamdance partnered with G2 stealth Sideswipe that gets me excited (search for WFC S26–ipads dont’t like CAG’S flash-based controls im afraid). My favorite duocon (duoBot?) of all time. Why I didn’t see this redeco coming six months ago was beyond me.

The WFC S27 set with Skywarp and three Targetmasters seems a cheap cop-out for the same price of the Autobot set for the same $50. Targetmasters are at least a few bucks cheaper.

Who was Spinister though? And where is that second windshield calf coming from?

G1 Targetmaster.  But more importantly to the bold: YES!  It's been hurting my brain since I saw the first pics.  I assume just tucks up under copter mode and was done to look like the G1 toy (which was basically just the cockpit with a "line" down the middle to simulate 2 legs, the brick that it was...)

It's been hurting mine too!  It has to be under the back or something close by-- the feet are positioned on both sides of the main cockpit (which makes me wonder if you can choose one or the other to be said cockpit in alt mode).

Also, OMG, what a travesty of a G1 figure! everyone at least had separate thighs--his whole lower half is just... solid. Poor fella.

Which SW is this? It's impossible to find on their website (there's like 20 different models, which is weird they have amazon-like sellers on it--super confusing).

Also, how much do they go for?

From what I saw it didn't look like it had too much articulation of any kind, It's more of a wait and see as of right now. I think it's too soon to really grasp what it may become, it certainly does look a lot better than the one they had several years back but $600 good I really don't know yet.

That's the G1 reissue. They did have it. Price is on the site :P They had to get it out of the back, but I have it now so I'm happy. Soundwave and his tapes are all I want from any of these lines... well, maybe the Ecto Prime from GameStop :P
