Bummed that you didn't get those cool Amazon Japan exclusive chrome piledrivers with your MP-12 Lambor? Site sponsor BigBadToyStore has listed an individual pre-order for the set! They're priced at $15.99 and scheduled to arrive in December. Best of all, these aren't knocks, they're from Takara.

It's been a while since I've watched G1, but did we see SS using those in the cartoon?

Not that it matters, I'm not spending any more on MP-12.

This is the last Sideswipe I'm buying, might as well do it like a Boss.

Pre-ordered.

Considering what some of us pay for a crazy devy set of "foot extensions" or head 15 isn't all that bad.
Buti do agree though it would have been nice to have them uncluded. >:oP

Weren't these piledrivers Amazon exclusives if you preordered? I may be wrong, but having them available as an afterthought tends to undermine the whole point of them being so

15 USD for a pair of miniature dog-poop scoopers? Pass.

Doesn't really add the the display value of the toy. The black pile-driver things that came with SS are good enough for me.

I think he used them for about half a second while he dug Skyfire out of the ice. They were mentioned in his tech specs which also adds a tad more validity to these otherwise useless accessories .

I'm holding off on these. I feel a jetpack is in the works and may be bundled with these piledrivers (3rd party or not).
Besides, I'm not going to be displaying Sideswipe with these attachments anyway.

Think of it as a business investment. $15 enables Sideswipe to get a job flipping burgers or pancakes.

Winning.

I think Sideswipe might have more of a career as a professional dog walker; those things would make really good poop scoopers.

He also used them, as they appear in this set, in Dinobot Island pt.2. He dug Bumblebee out of some rubble. Unfortunately he also saved Spike in the process.

And they're gone....already sold out on BBTS. Guess I'll pick them up on eBay for $50 in January from someone who bought 20 of them.

Thanks guys, only remembered the black ones from the episode that introduced the Insecticons (I think). Still not worth it though.

You got a coin with it? The store I bought from always includes a coin, up until Lambor. Maybe I should ask the store owner if he forgot to include one.

Doesn't really matter to me, TBH, but if the coin's free, I'll take it.

Nah, the poop would roll off. He'd need a spoon like accessory, or something with a bag.
