I found the scout class Laserbeak and Generations Cliffjumper in the Toysrus store by me yesterday. Finally managed to grab Masterpiece Skywarp too. Damn East Coast all ways behind.

I picked up springer, cliffjumper, wheelie, brawl, laserbeak and deadend. I really want hotspot. The Titanium version just isn't working for me anymore

Hotspot is certainly the gem of the entire line. He looks amazing. If they made a Hauler out of the mold, I'd get it too. I'd put them all in a big line with Artfire, Grapple, Inferno and Pyro/Spark and do a little dance. Funny how I don't mind getting a repaint or retool if it's a great mold. And $22 in a SWEET deal for the figure, especially considering the deluxes are $15 or $17 in some places.

Outlandish.

Went to my local TRU yesterday and they had nothing, but they're getting new stuff in tonight, so tomorrow I'lll check for these and the others. Fingers crossed.

Still annoys me that not only is Powerdive using the US name rather than the original European name but that he's based off a different character.

I spent 2 days hunting down every TRu within 50 miles and only found Laserbeak and Sandstorm. the guy at one told me he didn't even know what they were. Not in system, didn't know how they made it to the shelf. With my luck I'll find these guys in about 8 years at a TRU. lol

"Blade" and "Blitz" (Powerdive and G2 Ransack's EU names) are more than likely too generic for trademarking, and while I'm not gonna dispute his noggin being based more on G2 Ransack, the fact there already was a Ransack in G1 (the Deluxe Insecticon) may have led to the choice of Powerdive for the sake of distinction. :)

And I want them all! Megatron and Powerdive will fit nicely with G2, while Hot Spot can join my Silverbolt. Bring on FoC Scattershot! :DANCE:

Damn you for diluting my white boy rage with your healthy logic!

For as much as I'm put off by repaints, I'd be lying if i said I didn't want a Hot Spot.

Hopefully Hot Spot will be available at Toys R Us online.

Would love to display him with Universe/Classics 2.0 Onslaught.

$23 for a voyager at TRU? that cant be right i stopped by 2 TRUs in the past week & voyagers were still $26 at one & $30 at the other. Hopefully this means TRU finally grew a brain & is reducing prices back down to normal ones, if it is ill be using my 20% off coupon & picking up G2 Megatron.

Yep I can confirm that the price is $22.99, just bought Hotspot and Megatron for this price and used the coupon too.

Ive only found the scouts so far in my weekly rounds to 3 local TRUs. A week later what I didnt buy was gone. There were also the legends because nobody seems to want them. I feel for you guys that dont live near TRU, but on the other hand some of you guys are acting like they arent available on e-bay for $10-15 bucks more that US retail. If you want it that bad, it is available. Theyre by no means rare anymore.

:-?
Guess that may or may not be true for some folk but here in the U.K. youve got no chance of getting them for a reasonable price too easily?

A quick look on Ebay shows Voyager Hotspot delivered to the U.K. for around £40 via the wealth of dubious Asia sellers (expect a customs charge then?) which would be approx $60ish. With U.S. retail being around $25 plus your quoted $15 = $40, that would exchange to GBP at around £27 so where you got your prices from is beyond me? >:oP

Maybe because we live on a little island we are considered not quite as important to Toys 'R' Us than the continents? :-(
