I also preordered a jet vehicon...I still need a regular vehicon!

No to Botcon...they are still being held too far away for me to justify it. And with all the drama surrounding it i think i am better off.

There is still SLAGACON!

Definitely going to do that show this fall, since I cancelled Botcon due to the restrictions.big brother is laying down. They keep this up and I forsee it's death. Got notice my Knockout, Vehicon, and Hotshot shipped, should have today or tomorrow.

The new wave came today, and I only got :CON: Vehicon oop so far. It's a great figure with lots of upper body articulation. Not a bad size transformed, compared to how liittle car he is. I hope I happen to find a few locally to have a group. I'm sure the vehicon jet will be awesome as well, if this is any indication. :APPLAUSE:

Im really not going crazy with this line like I did with animated (ive learned alot since then)
Ive got my FE figs and RID Wheeljack and megs but beyond those I really only want those vehicons!

I really hope they get a good distribution here as I would like to get 4 or 5 :grin: but if it looks like they have dried up before you guys can get one just lemme know and I will come off a couple to help my fellow collectors out. :BOT:

Kind of late posting this, but I got voyagers SS and Bulkhead about two weeks ago.

Has everyone quit looking and collecting? We never see or hear much here anymore...

I ordered them from BBTS. I know what you mean about the "Prime" line, although it seems like the figures are getting better as the series progresses. I'd really like to see Hardshell as a figure, I hope they do it.

I preordered MP Soundwave and Red Alert, they release in Dec.just in time for my B-day! ;)

all 3 MP's are a must have for me. I just don't see how they are going to all be released the same time. But if they do I will be ready!

Im becoming more focused as a collector. I have set my attention to what I really love to collect and display and trying to ignore everything else. Its easier to afford the pricier, more desirable pieces that way. one Masterpiece TF or a timeless G1 compared to 5-6 deluxes from a line I probably will lose interest in? easy decision.

I feel all growned up :lol:

Things have been quiet here! I've found most of my stuff out of town although TRU two weeks ago had one voyager Bulkhead and Starscream, which I grabbed. I ended up ordering a case of deluxes from hasbrotoyshop that arrived yesterday so now I have a vehicon.

Hey guys, been slow in my area too hence the silence. But my ?? for my Ft Wayne friends is are there more than the 1 TRU here? I know the one on Lima n Colliseum but didn't know if there were others. Not so much a TF run but looking for the final Skylanders (Wham-shell) that my almost 5yo really wants for his birthday in June. Thx guys!

Picked up a RID Bludgeon (repaint of G2 Hero Megatron) at Intergalactic Toys today!

His new location is super big and still overflowing with awesomeness!

I'm really over going on hunts and coming up empty handed. It definitely takes the fun out of collecting when there is nothing to collect :BANG_HEAD:

I'm glad as hell I ordered the Vehicon when I did as it looks like we will never see it in a retail store, which is bullshit. Anymore I am ordering what I feel would be hopeless trying to find, sure it may cost a few more bucks but at least I have it, and I feel my time is worth something, so I'm not wasting it chasing a figure you will most likely never see..

I did receive notice my three FOC figures shipped, should have them Monday. I assume Shockwave will be another htf figure.

Last rant I have is the growing price on the shrinking toys. We're now paying $15 for a large 'scout' size figure. Wtf is Hasbro thinking?! I've been collecting TF's since the 90's and this hobby has really changed. You used to get the value for your money. I have to laugh, back when I ordered my Brave Max I thought $100 for it was outrageous, but went ahead and got it as I always wanted FM. Now we're paying $100 for deluxe size third party figures and not batting an eye. It makes collecting a lot less fun when you are so limited by price :shock: I don't know about the rest of you guys but I have to badly want a figure to spend that kind of money, and can't afford to get many of them. Hercules was last time I will spend that sort of money on a figure again.

This hobby used to be a lot of fun...what happened?

I feel ya man. Its really gone downhill, especially if you wana collect whats current.

Hell I even just miss the back and forth discussions here, but without anything to have a "sightings post" about it kinda just renders this thread pointless.

I found it best to just let my wants for anything current take the back burner, otherwise I get too worked up over something that is supposed to make me happy.

I have shifted almost all my attention to collecting G1. They are always available, and although they may be more expensive I believe they are worth it. I really cant see PRID dead end or bumblebee fetching top $ 20 years down the line.

I find more joy and involvement in finding great deals on vintage figures then being able to clean them up and restore them.

I really do love where im at with this hobby currently...I just wish the hobby currently was more enjoyable. If that makes sense. :lol:
