Yup, cuz when you're that big, using a gun would be redundant when you can use fist-mounted motorcycles 8-)

I do the same with Sky lYNX.



And where did you get those hands from? They look a lot better than the PE ones. Also, if you say Groove's front wheel has deployable saw blades that pop out, you could say that's a pretty sweet wrist saw, Hot Rod style.

That's why I bought them, I ordered them about 9 months ago here he's an extremely small operation, and I think Masterforce is handling UK shipments. They came on the production sprues, so you have to completely assemble them, but they're nice and solid - and actually look nice, unlike the dumb skeleton hands from PE #-o

There is a whole row of sunstreaker elsewhere, but I didnt bother checking if those were being bought too. Blastoff and Vortex are also left behind. But man, there was no hesitation on that skylynx, he's going away quick. Dont know if our fellow Kanrabat was able to get him today.
But yeah, Ironhide disapearing is very interesting.

I'm just gonna assume that everyone clamoured to get Swindle - because, y'know, Swindle - but didn't bother to get Ironhide before but now he's reduced it's a "ah might as well" type of deal.

Rejoice Canadians, ToysRus.ca has some new listings! They recently put up some new Transformers Combiner Wars torso's: Skylynx, Onslaught, and Scattershot. These fellas have been kinda sparse on some Canadian shelves, and while they might not be in stock right now keep your eye's peeled for when they are. Also noteworthy, prices have recently been dropped, but there's also a sale going on so hopefully you can take advantage of these savings! See the pics and links below, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Meanwhile in America TRU doesn't see anything wrong with asking $22.99 for Deluxe. :BANG_HEAD:

I'm pretty sure that's a price hike preceding a "sale" where they'll be like $13.99 and they can say they used to be $23.

Unfortunately, TRU has been charging around $20 for the deluxe/warrior class (both RID and CW) here and there, for about a year now. It's not all TRU, but it's pretty wide spread.

I visit 4 TRUs all about 1-2 hours apart spread across two different states and the prices are all over the place.

Fortunately, my local TRU keeps its prices for deluxes at $16.99, unfortunately it rarely has new stock.

Not always. But there is always a big space reserved to Transformers. And since last august, they also had a four side display/highlight shelf as well. So they are usually well stocked but its not always the latest wave (still no 2016 wave 2 deluxes in my area) and its not always these insane prices. Though Walmart prices are higher than TRU this year in Canada which is odd.

That price sounds nuts. Very sorry to hear about it.

Thats really odd to me. I mean they have an online site, I dont know why this prices dont match to it. Plus that would mean their central computer isnt lined up and that sounds like a nightmare when there is a sale in the flyer that is percentage based (because the central computer would issue new temporary price). Can you at least price check with walmart? That would remove any odd factor TRU has with its pricing.

We just got skylynx and only in a few places. he has yet to reach saturation in north america. New York still doesnt have him.

My TRUs have been charging $20 for Generations Deluxes since at least Halloween, while RID Warriors have been between $15-16, IIRC. I distinctly remember getting Streaker for 20 back then. I know I saw some store jack their prices of a product up sky high recently, maybe it wasn't TRU. Either way, I remember this tactic from Prime and, well, every sale ever. Raise the price and then slash it back and say your prices are SO LOW.

So here's a question.

Due to certain circumstances, it's turned out that I will likely have to get rid of two of my CW Deluxes. I'm definetely prioritizing my Blast Off, Brawl and Swindle for Onslaught to make a kind of Bruticus, but I'm struggling on what to keep out of the other three - First Aid, Rook and Alpha Bravo.
Rook I find the most fun and enjoyable, but he shares a mold with Swindle.
Alpha Bravo is a unique mold out of my little collection and he makes a decent replacement Vortex for now.
First Aid is undoubtebly my favourite and is a unique mold, but he fits in as a replacement Bruticus limb the least.
I'm keeping all their weapons so those won't come into it. What would you guys do?
