No please, no. That assumes the whole world has Target, which isnt the case.

Ah, right. Last thing we need is another deluxe leadfoot who never makes it to retail :lol:

Optimus looks great, although I'm a little concerned that none of the images show his triple-barreled blaster from DotM. Looks like there's an empty spot on the right side of the weapon trailer where it could fit in, though, so maybe its just not in these pics for some reason?

Really digging that Drift, although I hope the changes to the Dropkick mold make it more stable. Mine was a fiddly mess, especially the arms.

Ok after some initial annoyance with these two figures (they've both got slightly fiddly bits but you get used to it) and using some nail polish on the joints that keep Barricade's chest connected to his waist better I really like these two. Two very nice additions to my SS collection. :)

I love them. Will be getting Optimus, Drift, and definitely getting all the Construction bots. As for the Ksi boss, I'm on the fence about.
Optimus an his trailer...iconic and great representation of him in dark of the moon version. Of course the paint job isn't perfect, but this collector has paint ready for all movie figures to detail once I'm done collecting all I'm gonna collect. Drift looks great jus wish we got a triple changer of him but I recognize it's harder to do with a deluxe class figure than with a voyager or leader class figure so I'm satisfied.

I think even voyager or leader size would struggle to have two realistic vehicle alt-modes without some compromise (and scale issues). Hard to get one alt-mode correct sometimes never mind two. :P

Odd thing... I thought SS05 Optimus' value should have decreased significantly since SS32 and now the DotM version of it coming out but I've seen a few 2nd hand ones sell on eBay for a nice amount. One just now sold for £26 (brand new RRP is £32.99). Am curious as to why. Maybe people confused about which one they're buying (doubtful cos the photos show it very clearly as the first version), are people buying it for the swords (the only realy draw to the figure now but probably not worth that much?) or some other reason? Eh, if you have that figure and want to sell it then maybe it's worth a try?

I won the bidding for Crowbar from same seller for £7.50 which I think is a good price for me. Means I finally finish Wave 1 (well, if you count Black Mamba Grimlock as SS Grimlock it's made from and I did have the official SS Grim before I sold it so IT STILL COUNTS! I think :michaelbay: )


Here be my current Studio Series collection... including several figures that technically aren't but either just fit and are cool or are placeholders for eventual SS figures. :P

That KO OS Grimlock works way better in scale with Studio Series. That's cool.

I wonder if they every make a Masterpiece scale version though :twisted: (wrong forum, sorry)

The legs on drift are not good at all. That mold is just a total loss.

Oh, now I see. For DOTF Leader Optimus, the trailer split in parts. One is the ring-O-guns, and the rest of the pieces make the Jetpack. Clever.

Always a bit weird when I see toys I already have (SS32 Prime, Barricade, Jetfire, Sideswipe etc) being shown off at a Toyfair but yeah I neeeed that DotM Prime with that trailer. It's awesomeness. I dunno about Dropkick and Shatter. Might pass on those like I'll pass on SS38 Prime (and have sold Gold VW Bee and I'm tempted to sell the yellow too). Drift(kick) is still neat even though it looks like they haven't fitted his lower leg sections properly on that display model. KSI Boss looks more tempting. I like his colours. But yeah mostly want DotM Prime. :D

Is SS-38 out yet? Some fans already have him, but I found only a pre-order on BBTS for April.

That Leader Prime is definitely worth the money to me. It's the ultimate movie Prime. Comes with the trailer, wingpack, ring of weapons, and it still has the compatability with Jetfire. Glad I didn't pick up the new voyager until we saw how this Prime would turn out

That's interesting, Prime's windows (both the vehicle mode ones and the faux ones in robot mode) are painted in silver instead of transparent like the previous releases. I kinda dig it, I think I would've preferred a darker color but it's still pretty cool.

Can't wait to get this figure, I'm thinking about preordering him from Pulse :-?

So we have 2 normal Constructicons (Long Haul and Scrapmetal), and 2 unique ones (Hightower and Rampage), I wonder what the ratio of normal and unique constructicons will be. We know Scavenger is a unique while Mixmaster is somewhere in between unique and normal

None of the figures are new. There was not one single new reveal in the whole presentation. >:oP








Anyway, on to happy news.......

I broke down and picked this guy up at Target today. I hate myself a little for paying full redcard price, but I was tired of walking past him every day. Really great figure, does a horrible design amazing justice. I highly recommend.

Come on, give the guy a break, if not for Walmart jumping the gun and internet savy people unearthing stuff, a lot of stuff would have been new today. Plus, this is the first time we see those figures outside of renders (after 1 day of them having been leaked).

Anyways, your taste keeps surprising me, I would have thought that you'd hate that megatron for being a small leader and having the truck cab visibly hollow.

The legs here are mistransformed, that's why they look terrible, otherwise Drift makes this mold shine better than Dropkick

My apologies, that was not meant to be directed at him, just my overall frustration with the show, and direction of the brand in general, bleeding out. Very little coming out that I'm interested in, and what there is, has ridiculous price tags.....


I dunno. When I was young and had no to very little money, I'd buy everything I liked, and a lot I didn't, and almost never worry about price.


Now, comfortable in life, and with plenty of disposable income, price has become one of my number one determing factors in buying figures.

I am similarly underwhelmed so far. I mean sure, what we’ve seen is good, but it’s nothing we haven’t actually seen before yet. I’m hoping there is more in next couple days.

And I don’t know if the brand is bleeding out just yet. Siege seems to be doing well, and there are still two more parts to this trilogy. Sure everything is very GEEWUN right now, but there’s still room for other homages.

Define normal and unique.
