To Kapow Toys!
I need me a Thundercracker and a Sandstorm as well... (and a Springer and a Blitzwing and a Blaster and a... oh wait, I'm not supposed to spend an entire months wages on Transformers am I?
In other news...
My "bargain" Beast Hunter Prime turned up from Smyths today. For the record (if anyone was paying attention...) it cost me under £20 (not including postage, £23 in total I think). So that was half price and then 20% off of that. Bargain!
However to be honest that was a little expensive. I nearly bought the toy when it was 20% off at Toys R us a while back, but didn't want to spend £40 when I saw it. Now I have it I am doubly glad! I mean it is a nice enough mould and looks pretty. The stupid ring of doom does not come off annoyingly. Bot mode is cool and big (ignoring the stupid ring), the weapons are fun. Lacking a mini gun of course.
The "truck" is messy, hollow and chunky. The whole thing feels like a cheap, plastic Tonka Toy, which is a shame. I don't hate it, but it's not worth more than £20, it's size is the only thing that commands that kind of price.
Worryingly, this level of complication and chunkyness seems to be the way Hasbro is moving forward (I'm looking at you Upscaled Prime Legends...)
