Last week I found Dead End and Arachnid at Target and Breakdown showed up in the mail.

Dead End
Color scheme really pops in my opinion. Other than the monkey arms, I think this is one of the better figures in the line and works better than Wheel Jack.

Arachnid
Only picked her up because she is on the show. Super simple transformation with the copter forming her entire back. Looks ok from the front so I just stuck her towards the back.

Breakdown
Really nice. Transformation is a little harder but not to bad. I really like the stickers but that is just me. The minicon is cool too, much better than the mechtech stuff on the US figures. Nice scale compared to Bulkhead.

I have a couple of Jet Vehicons in the mail and should have them in a day or two.

Got Cyberverse Magnus and Nightwatch Prime at Y'All-Mart today.

Bought the Prime to be the pilot for Op Maximus, thus freeing up the regular Op. Oh, and for the blades.

Magnus is sort of disappointing though as his shoulder joints are ridiculously loose and his hands can't seem to grip the hammer weapon. He's sort of fiddly too; his shoulder armors and chest plates flop out of position easily whenever his arms are moved. Shame, really, as this is the one I was really looking forward to. :-(

Sounds like you got a bad one, mine doesn't have any of those problems. Except maybe the problem with the hammer. His hands aren't sculpted well, so you have to sort of push it in there for it to stick and it can wobble around some so it doesn't stay there well.

Very nice find! How did you get him? :APPLAUSE:

And are the Hellflames really that expensive? I may have to set my sights on the AMW series first then, as well Shadow R.A. and Gora. Let me know how Terrorcon 'Bee is as soon as you get him :D
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Snapped him up from Toy Arena, for about £25 posted; which I was more than happy with.

Terrorcon Bee is great, he really looks the part, even if it is the 5th Prime BB deluxe I've bought, with a sixth on the way! Terrorcon Zori works well, there's just something relly sinister about h scorpion... My only complaint that for an exclusive, maybe they could have used the FE mould? But on he flip side that would have meant no AM....

I don't honk that the Hell Flame Mcrons are that expenisve per se, it's just that nooe seems to have them, I've not even found after market ones on eBay! It's probably not helped by AM Gul coming IN the actual Darkness Megs box and not being a giveaway in the usual sense.

A bit of a cheeky double post this one ;)

Given that there hav been no new Voyagers in the nearly 9 months the range has been available here, I snagged these from Kapow Toys;

In this fantastic and very cheap haul I got from a loca guy:

Image

There was Takara Deluxe First Edition Megatron.
For 20$.
Mint on card.
No shipping cost because I bought it in person.

I have the voyager and cyberverse version of Prime's Megatron. At last, I found the deluxe for a normal deluxe price.

The deluxe version of Prime's Megatron is the BEST of the 3. The robot and vehicle modes both look FANTASTIC. Also, the transformation is easy, not frustrating like the voyager's.

Nobody should pass this up.

My wife dragged me back to Target tonight to buy a lunch bag she saw yesterday. They must have re-stocked since my trip last night, because there was a Dreadwing waiting on the shelf for me this time. I was worried I wasn't going to be able to find him. All of the Meijer and Walmart stores in town have shelves packed with Prime or Megatron. I've only seen series 2 a couple of times.

Speaking of Dreadwing, my import (Hasbro, from ehobbybaseshop) came in this past Wednesday. Fantastic figure, but flawed. The rubber pieces (including the head) could make the figure either worthless or extremely expensive in the future...

I found and bought prid Rumble at my local K-mart.

He is epic.

I personally rank him up there with Soundwave and prid Vehicon.

Only downside is that at kmart the price is $18.99 with the addition of the DVD ( oh yea and the episode is "Loose Cannon")

Still great figure.

19 bucks!? Good grief! For another dollar you could get a voyager. I hope this isn't standard pricing.

Wow!

On the way to work today I just for the heck of it stopped by one of my local Y'All-Marts. I expected the usual crashing disappointment to occur, so I was completely blown away when I found CV Magnus and Skyquake, as well as Deluxe Rumble and Kup. Bought on sight.

I then spent the rest of the day muttering stuff like "well, ain't that something", and "wow, how do you like that!", and "I'll be doggone!"as if I had just seen a real unicorn or found a pile of hen's teeth.

Kinda sad how actually finding Transformers at the store should be a thing that triggers such a reaction, lol.

$15.47 each. And the CV ones were $9.96.

Yep, we've reached the point where Legends style figures cost as much as Deluxe used to, and Deluxe figures cost as much as Voyagers used to. On the day CV reaches Voyager pricing, I think it'll finally be time to quit the hobby!
