I'm throwing my money at my screen but all I see are cracks from the credit cards sticking into the LCD....

I nabbed the last Springer and Blitzwing from the target in Harvey this morning. Their both amazing; except for Blitzwings crappy shoulders. Will have to do that shoulder mod as well.

Yeah it works like a charm, it does not however make up for the crappy transformation, rubber nose that does not stick adequately in jet transformation not to mention the back portion that holds his arms/shoulders and "turret" swivel that pops off occasionally during transformation.. I will keep Blitz in a nice posed robot from..
Springer on the other hand is absolutely perfect (IMHO)...

Passed by the TRU, Target, and Walmart on Veterans this weekend and didn't see anything noteworthy. I also went to the Walmart on Tchopatoulas Sunday and didn't see anything there either.

I'm keeping an eye out for Beast Hunters Skystalker and Ultimate Predaking. 8)

BumbleBee has a broken arm socket right out of the package. He's such a neat little figure too. Will have to try to glue it back together.

Had to run to BR for work today. This afternoon I found 2 BH Voyager Shockwaves at TRU on Siegen, and a new box of Series 2 Kre-os at the Target down the way. I took a set for myself but there should be a complete set still there. Also picked up a Hun-Grr, what a cute lil fella! He's so small, but his pose is of a large, burly dude. Can't wait to find the last 3 figs I need for Abominus.

Sorry about the sideways pix, that is how it uploaded from my phone.
When I opened him he had 2 sets of instructions.
He looks fantastic though. His head is a bit loose though and his plastic feels to be a different grade then Springers.. Maybe it is just me.

Great fig though, if you find him do not pass him up!

I agree, he's a great figure. I had no intentions on picking him up, but when I saw him in person, I had to buy him! That V-Tol mode is great. Also, his plastic feels a bit sturdier than Springer's. He holds together better, has better paint aps, and feels a littler heftier. Dare I say, Sandstorm is BETTER than Springer.

Also, oddly enough, mine didn't even come with instructions... :-?

Thanks, but don't worry about it. I always throw away the instructions along with the boxes anyway. :grin: I watch YouTube reviews instead of the instructions.

I used to do the exact same thing. I had tons of instructions in two big boxes and realized I never used them and they were only taking up space. Same thing with boxes and card stock. They were taking up A LOT of storage space. So one day I just put all my boxes and instructions in a few trash bags and got rid of them. I only kept instructions/boxes for my MP's and 3rd Party figures. When you think about it, what's the point of keeping the instructions for so many figures?

Went to the TrU on Vets just to see if they had Skystalker or Ultimate Predaking. No luck, but they did have the Ultimate BH Prime there along with another Grimwing (I thought I had grabbed the last one). Hopefully, this means that Ultimate Predaking will start showing up soon. Weird how they aren't showing up together though. :???:
