Recent Wave of Transformers Universe

Postby DiacloneVanguard » Sun Feb 27, 2011 7:49 pm

Does anyone know why the most recent wave of figures is so difficult to find in stores? Is it a regional phenomenon? This group of figures I speak of are: Special Ops Jazz, Turbo Tracks, Warpath, Perceptor, etc. Is shipping simply later on these?

Personally, I gave up trying to buy TFs in stores during the ROTF line, after seeing two displays full of nothing but Skids, Mudflap and Ravage for months on end. From here on out I preorder everything on BBTS. :BOT:

It comes down to the stores themselves unfortunately. When the shelves and pegs are still full of product, they don't see the need to order more (and thus newer) stock. Reveal the Shield is really bad, since to the stores and Hasbro it's the same line as Hunt for the Decepticons, but Generations is still separate.

These figure are already out or are due out:
- Turbo Tracks
- Special Ops Jazz
- Perceptor
- Wreck-Gar
- Scourge (Generations)
- Sergeant Kup (Generations)

These figures are upcoming:
- Wheeljack (Generations)
- Thundercracker (Generations)
- Warpath (Generations)
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I've already got SO Jazz, Perceptor, Turbo Tracks and Wreck-Gar here in the UK. Don't tell me we're getting more toys than the States for a change!

Transformers Instruction Manuals

Postby DiacloneVanguard » Sat Mar 10, 2012 7:49 pm

Does anyone know if there is a website devoted to posting pages from instruction manuals? The Transformers I purchase do not get opened. However, I find plenty of Transformers at yard sales etc. and I need a guide for some of the ones I am unable to figure out on my own.

TFCC Runamuck

Postby DiacloneVanguard » Sat Apr 14, 2012 11:05 am

..Has anyone received or not received this figure yet as a member of TFCC? I sent the club an email but they have not responded. Just wondering since I missed one of the Gestalt figures a few years ago they did not mail to me..
