Looks like I won't be able to get Amazon Slog either.


You had to check if what I said in the previous post was true, didnt you? Also, you forgot the taxes that still apply. Also, they MUST use FedEx, which mean it's a hassle to get your damn package if you're not at home.

Order a few toys from BBTS instead. you'll still have to pay some shipping costs, but it will be way less than from HTS. Plus, no taxes.

Yeah, tell me about it. I found Shrapnel and Tailgate the day I went to see Age of Extinction, and I've yet to even find one whiff of Cosmos and Swerve. :-(


Another point, Nemesis Prime and Cliffjumper are numbered Series 02 18,19... Did I miss some figures?


That would be odd, could I see pics of the inserts? The last two releases, Skrapnel and Tailgate, were numbers 007 and 008.


Sure, do you know if there's an easy way to post from Instagram since that's what I usually use? I hate to say it's kinda a pain to post pics here.

A simple right-click, copy image link, paste in image tags should work. :D

All you'd need is the link to the file itself (a URL ending in .jpg, .gif, basically any image format) which you can get by right-clicking and selecting "Copy Image Location", and the [img] tags. Resizing should be done automatically.

Yup. I always use hyperlinks from an image hosting site, or I take the image URL and place in in the [img ] [ /img] brakets. (remove spaces)

Well, there's also the upcoming TF: Legends version and Legend Commander Collection version.

and rattrap is already sold out -_- I saw him this morning but was hoping to wait until the SDCC stuff was in the store so if I managed to grab the kre-o set I could save on shipping. and of course HTS seems to never restock anything ever, so I'm stuck hoping I find it in stores... which given how swerve and cosmos seems to have gone is unlikely

As for the numbers on Cliffjumper and Nemesis Prime. They had been planned for release later on but were pushed up for some reason. Perhaps since the molds were fresh from the rerelease of the Optimus Prime / Bumblebee Wave.

Other figures such as Gnaw , Brawn , Gears , Acid Storm , Powerglide , Bombshell , Thundercracker , Huffer , and Windcharger were planned between.

Not quite. Gnaw and Brawn may have been planned but were pulled during planning, Acid Storm and Gears are in limbo atm, and Powerglide, Bombshell, Thndercracker and Windcharger are planned for early 2015. The last four will not come with their partners it looks like. Powergide will turn into Superion's weapon, and a Legends black car ("Blackjack") will become Menasor's chest plate, no more need for Micromasters.

I do hope Thundercracker at least gets released since he's the only Seeker who makes sense to be in that body.

Gnaw and Brawn are not cancelled. None of the Legends are cancelled at this point. Just being released out of order.

Cliffjumper and Nemesis Prime were announced officially after Powerglide , Thundercracker , Bombshell and Windcharger.

Just because they have not been shown yet does not mean they are cancelled.

I have it on good authority Kickback , Huffer , Skywarp , Brawn , and Gnaw are coming still at some point with or without partners.

Also Gears and Acid Storm are not on Hiatus. They will be released later this month.

Not relevant to the discussion at hand, but has anyone gotten Leader Jetfire yet? Not usually a 'Generations' fan (outside my Wreckers collection) but seriously thinking of picking him up. :-?

He is out in places as some reviewers have him in-hand.

Concerning leader Jetfire, how come Hasbro can't recreate the cartoon backpack of his like the one attached to the G.I. Joe Sky striker/Skyfire deco? Wouldn't that look great?

Btw, I wonder who was the engineer responsible for this beauty? Hope someday we'll know like we now know who was responsible for henkei Mirage among others.

Kicking off the week with a new sighting, Seibertron.com fan Cayla Callaway has sent us photo proof of Generations Voyager Sky-Byte and Roadbuster in a Target store in Amarillo, Texas, at $22.99. Sky-Byte went to a new home, and two Roadbusters remain - if you spot them around your area, make sure to use the Sightings section and check out the sub-forum too!
