Kicking things off, we discuss the launch (and relaunch) of the TFCC Exclusive Over-Run and Shattered Glass Drift figures
, as well as the problems the Club managed during the sale.
We discuss the issue with preorders, offer suggestions for the future, and discuss the figures themselves.
Next up, we lament the unexpected end of Transformers Prime: First Edition
toys. We analyze the problems with store exclusives, discuss the costs involved, speculate on reasons, and get rather salty about the whole affair, including the shortage of Takara First Edition toys to compound fan desire.
Moving on from First Edition to Robots in Disguise, we give our thoughts on the recently revealed Ratchet
and Optimus Maximus
, as well as some of the other, upcoming figures.
We then jump to other side of the world, and review the just-released United Rodimus
and give our thoughts on his over-the-top paint apps.
We have some Micron talk up next for those collectors with a tiny figure predilection, with the recently announced Arms Micron line
Finally, we discuss a few pieces of excellent art floating around from the likes of Jim Sorenson
and Guido Guidi
showing us some new sides to the art we've come to know and love.Seibertron.com
