"Blade" and "Blitz" (Powerdive and G2 Ransack's EU names) are more than likely too generic for trademarking, and while I'm not gonna dispute his noggin being based more on G2 Ransack, the fact there already was a Ransack in G1 (the Deluxe Insecticon) may have led to the choice of Powerdive for the sake of distinction. :)


Damn you for diluting my white boy rage with your healthy logic!

For as much as I'm put off by repaints, I'd be lying if i said I didn't want a Hot Spot.

Hopefully Hot Spot will be available at Toys R Us online.

Would love to display him with Universe/Classics 2.0 Onslaught.

$23 for a voyager at TRU? that cant be right i stopped by 2 TRUs in the past week & voyagers were still $26 at one & $30 at the other. Hopefully this means TRU finally grew a brain & is reducing prices back down to normal ones, if it is ill be using my 20% off coupon & picking up G2 Megatron.

Ive only found the scouts so far in my weekly rounds to 3 local TRUs. A week later what I didnt buy was gone. There were also the legends because nobody seems to want them. I feel for you guys that dont live near TRU, but on the other hand some of you guys are acting like they arent available on e-bay for $10-15 bucks more that US retail. If you want it that bad, it is available. Theyre by no means rare anymore.

Guess that may or may not be true for some folk but here in the U.K. youve got no chance of getting them for a reasonable price too easily?

A quick look on Ebay shows Voyager Hotspot delivered to the U.K. for around £40 via the wealth of dubious Asia sellers (expect a customs charge then?) which would be approx $60ish. With U.S. retail being around $25 plus your quoted $15 = $40, that would exchange to GBP at around £27 so where you got your prices from is beyond me? >:oP

Maybe because we live on a little island we are considered not quite as important to Toys 'R' Us than the continents? :-(
