If Amazon is right I'll be getting this set before Ironhide and Ratchet

Like, not even "Japanese G1" obscure, but "Universe 2003 Big Lots/CVS Pharmacy exclusive" obscure!

Their deco is based on Universe Storm Jet, the Hasbro redeco of the 1992 Japanese Sixwing space shuttle component Micromaster Raker.

I should've caught this, I have that set. Got all the Universe Micromaster Combiners from KB Toys online. Might have been the only time I bought anything from that site.

It's just something someone mentioned, not the horse I'm backing, besides one is on a white background, and one is on a very dark background, they look similar enough. Again, not saying they ARE the same, but close. Also not saying this IS the inspiration, but could be just as much as the CVS one.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Also interested in The 2002/03 Takara Micromaster releases (Sixliner,Sixwing,Sixtrain) willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I do! One of my earliest sets. Summer 2008, we were in a CVS and there in the toys section were the whole set, all six. Because my brother was with me, my mother had us split the set between us, three for him and three for me. Storm Jet was one of mine. I was 8, he was 4. I believe that was the first and last time I've ever gotten Transformers at CVS. Unfortunately, we've since lost the head and Air-raid, but the rest are all intact, even the GPS-laden crotch piece.

But you're right, it is a pretty random reference if intentional.

Yep! Of course, I mean 'set' loosely, they were all individually packaged, but as a combiner team I think it applies.

I wouldn't call Earthrise Ratchet bad, just disappointing (I wanted an A.I.R.Lock version of the full G1 sled/repair bay, not its Transform Jr cousin).

And Lifeline is a boy in your headcanon? :-P ;)

Anyway...
Warning for possible shameless plug:
Something I've missed from Titans Return and Power of the Primes is the collector cards. I finally got to work making some for WFC figures based on the TR cards, starting with the Horrorcons (who in a way are TR figures released after the fact). And on the off chance that I'm not the only one who wants such a thing, you can read about it in this thread. So far it's just Snapdragon, Apeface, and Springer, but there will more. Linking to the existing thread because it saves bother and it's a SIEGE-ER mix.
WANT:
Cybertron Galvatron, with both backpack halves and the claw weapon, at a price not to exceed $42 total

It's funny how many people seem to believe that the less conservative party is going to make the country into (more of) a fascist surveillance state. Especially since the news services claiming this simultaneously claim the left will turn the country into an anarchistic hippy land with no social and moral controls.

That's really cool, I'm surprised they figured that out, but they do pull a few rabbits out of their hats every now and then like repainting Astrotrain like a duo from Landcross. I never got the Universe versions of these molds because I got many of the Japanese versions (the "reissues" not the originals: Six Wing, Six Turbo, Six Builder, and Decepticon Six Builder) from a seller, I think it was called Snarl's Shop, for something like $25 a set.

I think I'll continue to call the front half Storm Jet, but call the rear half Skyboom after the Energon Mini-con shuttle. Speaking of which, that mold also got the same Storm Jet color scheme three years later as Cybertron Ramjet.

Image

In other news, Target canceled my Trailbreaker order, again claiming I didn't approve his delay. That's total BS, I did approve the delay on him and Sunstreaker as they were in the same order and the other two from wave 3 had shipped. Sunstreaker wasn't cancelled, in fact I got an other delay for him that I had to again approve, he and Sunstreaker were still in the same order together as of a few days ago. Looks like I'll have to hope I can find him at a decent price elsewhere, sure won't be as good as what I would have paid for him ($15 after .5% tax and free shipping).

I had the same/opposite happen to me, they cancelled Sunstreaker claiming I didn't approve the delay, but asked me to approve a delay on Trailbreaker which would make me lose the BOGO price. I had previously approved delays on both. I already thought they might be cancelled and ordered from Amazon and received them already last week.

Well, Amazon has shipped out my Galactic Odyssey set #3, the Autobot Clones. They're to arrive tomorrow. That'll be the first Galactic Odyssey set I receive, but it's certainly not the first I ordered. I'm waiting still on Ratchet and Lifeline. Distribution has been an absolute mess this year.

Same here with the clones, mine showed up Monday. The box is pretty cool, with the full map showing and the Galactic Odyssey planets highlighted. No clue what's up with distribution though, you'd think they'd get released in order of reveal but whatever.

I mean, reveal dates and release dates don't necessarily have anything to do with each other? Did the preorder release dates change?

I understand being frustrated by "I can't get this thing" and "I can't get this thing as soon as everyone else can," but this sounds like "I can't get this in my hands now." That's not the same thing.

Unfortunately the Prowl and Ironhide set I pre-ordered has now been pushed back to early January. I guessed a delay was on the cards because the tracking info was still saying it hadn't been shipped all the way up to the projected arrival date, I just wish it wasn't as far off as January.

Fortunately I managed to get Grapple this week, he's pretty good in both modes and I like his claw accessory. Plus he adds a nice unique colour to my Autobot line-up (I have no other orange Transformers)

Unfortunately while I was transforming Grapple from crane to robot one of the pegs that tab into the robot feet snapped off. This was before I knew the snapping pegs were a common problem with the mould.

Yeah, it really sucks, same thing happened to me when he first came out. At least he is still plentiful on the shelves around me, so exchanging him should be pretty easy. If you get a replacement, then the first thing you'll want to do is sand down the pegs that go into the bottom of his feet for vehicle mode.

As it looks now, I'll be getting Ratchet and the Paradon medic before Ironhide and Prowl.

Ouch. You could try and get a replacement, or you could do a repair with Krazy Glue. Definitely sand or file the peg down a bit.

Their deco is based on Universe Storm Jet, the Hasbro redeco of the 1992 Japanese Sixwing space shuttle component Micromaster Raker.

How incredibly Random. Who even remembers that release?


The European folk at the very least: the Micromaster Six-Combiner redecos were general retail there and quite plentiful. Look under the Energon/Cybertron lines, as Universe 2003 was not a thing there.

... why does money have to be so tight now? :-(
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

And because they were sold in the Energon and Cybertron lines in Europe, the four Micromaster Six-Combiner teams were later declared to be Unicron Trilogy characters, having all originally been Mini-Cons who were upgraded by Dr. Jones into something new called "Micromasters", now able to Powerlinx together six at a time thanks to Dr. Jones attempting to reverse engineer Maximus combiner technology (as in, the tech used by Superion Maximus, Bruticus Maximus, and Constructicon Maximus).

Now, anyone who still has a Mini-Con collection can add these 24 Micromasters to it if they wanted to.
