Thanks ZeroWolf!

I think this is the first appearance of the wave3 Prime Masters in OR -- wave2 was here less than a week and hasn't been seen since. You will love these 3, Kanra. :)

Oh, I know I will. Amzing that PotP is the only line when I genuinely want and buy all the microbots. Even at full price. Eh, so far, I never bought any of them on sale. They are never on sale for starter and it's ill advised to wait.

While wave1 is readily available, I only saw wave2 at Target for a few days....and now there's wave3. I bet Landmine and Submaurader are harder to find later on. But Bludgeon was absolutely who I wanted the most, even if he's no substitute for the G1 original. A Masterpiece would be, though! ;p

I once bought a 100% complete, in box, manual, everything, stickers unnaplied G1 Apeface on Mandrake. ONLY 8000 yens! When the bill arrived, I noticed that I missed a zero. It was 80 000 yens.

I panicked just a bit...
Luckily, the seller was understanding. #-o

So all there is left to get are the Thunderguns. The big ones are not to hard to get, but the small one will be a bit tricky...

Yeah, sweet haul TT! I see the homing lasers on the wings! As Kanra said, the li'l cyclone gun can be stupid expensive, so I haven't looked too hard for it.

I'd even consider a replica, like I did for Octopunch's crab legs. They're fun but obviously not the originals.

I have none of Stranglehold's weaponry, but I think he'll be fine.

The 2 large guns came with the shell, and are attached under the wings in the pic.

So far he's cost £76 (inc. P&P).

TBH, not sure if I'm that bothered about the small gun, even if it would be nice to say it's all complete...

I've been slowly working on assembling Crossblades, but I may have a look at trying to get Starscream.

Starscream should not be tough to obtain/complete -- Crossblades certainly won't be easy because he came with plenty of accessories! Hopefully you already had some of the more rare items.

The ammount of parts Crossblades come with is ridiculous. Better just buy him 100% complete in one go.

Yeah, Crossblades has been interesting, with the amount of varied parts he has. Dropped £58 on him so far, and still missing the pair of small guns and rotorblades.

I looked up Thunderwing's small gun. 4 on Ebay. From 65$US to 105$US! #-o

I consider myself so lucky to have found my complete pretenders for so cheap last year!

Just got hit by this bad luck. According TF Wiki the Prime Master Landmine mold has quality problems with the shoulder connectors. I read about it and when my European Toys'R'us just received that 2nd Wave this weekend and the Landmine i purchased was really floppy.
So got him returned him in exchange for a Submarauder instead since Bludgeon suffered a case of shortpacked (first time i've seen this) Wave 1 is still pegwarming the majority and only 2 Landmines left and i didn't want to risk getting another stinker :( (salvaging the prime figure and gun without the armor aint fun)

I don't get why Hasbro hasn't fixed the European wave yet. Be on the lookout for bad connectors.
