You're a peach, mel. :) What about the other SDCC set, the G1 deco Dinobots one? Anyone know?


I can check when I get home, but I don't recall it being an x of 30. Same with the Kreon set.

you guys already wrote that Silver Knight Optimus and Grimlock target exclusive is number 29 right?

Are we still missing any and is there a place I can see the full list?
Latest TF: Leader Grimlock, Cybertron Hot Shot

If anyone cares for these, I have an extra Arms Micron 27 Ultra Magnus up for grabs, as well as the Beast HUnter Commander class figures that were never sold in the US (Ultra Magnus and Bludgeon)

SDCC Dinobots are not a numbered release.

My bet is on a couple of the other platinum sets. I just picked up the WM AOE exclusives today and none of those are numbered.

The Target Exclusive Platinum Edition Silver Knight Prime using the FE mold is also labeled as 28 of 30 - same as the smash and change version. Phone is being stubborn on uploading the picture anywhere.

What a well thought out list! :BANG_HEAD:

Is it? If that's the case, can anyone confirm the number of the Smash & Change one? It's easy to mistake the two molds...

Not really hard to differentiate the two, but anyway, here's the picture I took while at the store:

When they announced this promotion/line/whatever, who knew it was going to be a meaningless tag slapped onto random figures? What a letdown. It's hardly been "thrilling."

It's weird how random it is. If they just did it with all SDCC exclusives for the past two years (6), Platinum Editions released and not yet released (14), Masterpieces (5), and Windblade, they'd only have 4 more slots to fill randomly like they have.

I honestly think they just put a blindfold on someone and had them throw darts at a list of upcoming products. There's no other way to explain how some of these boring and lame figures got named to the "Thrilling 30" list.

Well, the list is done. Apparently the Protectobot multipacks that are random repaints of other things are 16 and 17 of 30.

How Thrilling.

The thrilling 30 exclusives were like bad sex; tiring, unfulfilling, shallow, and waxy.

Honestly it'd been better if the more specialized deluxes were part of the 30 of 30. Not necessarily exclusives, but like armada, beast wars, IDW/G1 specials you know.
