Sweeet. I hope they hit Canada soon, and actually stick around awhile instead of selling out immediately, never to be seen again.

well that person lucked out not only did they find them but look at the price they paid, not even walmart sells them for that and they're the cheapest. I wont be seeing these for a while, by the time they are released around here christmas shopping will be in full effect and they'll wont stay on the pegs for more than a day. Then factor in how long it takes to restock so i wont be seeing them until mid February if lucky.

If I were to get only one thing for Christmas, Junkheap would be perfect for me. Especially when I will be the human equal of a Junkion. Bah-weep-gah-nah-weep-ninny-bong!

i definitely want junkheap.. but i'm really waiting for tf prime figures at this point. hopefully all this stuff will start hitting soon rather than not being released at all, showing up at discount store.

Cool. I´m dying to know if Junkheap has the same issues as Wreckgar.

What issue did Wreck-Gar have?

Also, as much as I like the Black Shadow redux, I wonder if the mold could also be used for a Classics Blitzwing. I want a new Blitzwing so bad.

Should be getting these from Kapow Toys this week, can't wait!

How many of these to a case? After a lot of people struggled to get Warparth first time round, I hope everyone gets a chance to grab these.

Well, I´ve never gotten the figure in hand so I only know what other people have said, but the toy is supposed to be made of a poor quality plastic and is very easy to break. I love the mold, but the possibility of breaking it would drive me crazy if I ever buy it.

Now that's a bit harsh. If anything, only the handlebars are a major breaking point, and even that's avoidable for the most part by not touching them, and letting the Automorph do its thing.

I will be buying Junkheap.

As for the issue with the handlebars, I don't intend to transform him more than once. He will stay in alt mode with Wreck-Gar riding him (that sounds funny).

That´s a lesson I learned as a kid. It doens´t matter how hard you try a bad toy will break. Some people can spend 10 years without touching the toy, transform it after that long, break it, and carry on with their lives, but I can´t. I can spend 20 years without touching it but, if it breaks after 20 years of being left alone, I would go crazy.

Also I´ve heard that even with the automorph, the pieces will break. I just hope Junkheap doesn´t have any "breaking" issues.

Got mine from Kapow toys, they arrived this morning, only a liitle over RRP, which considering we'll never see them here; I was more than happy to pay it.
