Awesome hanks, I could only see a flash before the log in popups and prompts (never seen FB so aggressive before), but saw a +3.

After seeing the alt mode sketch, I have to assume the bot mode was just off/wrong/incomplete. Makes me want to print them off and bust out the color pencils.

To me it looks like they were going for a split cockpit with both legs mashed together for copter mode. That would have actually worked with the current upper torso without having to change much since the other leg with the fake cockpit tucks into the bottom where it is hidden pretty well. Really just adjust the bottom of the tail/torso section to have a finished look on the bottom if both legs were going to be the cockpit. I'm guessing they just couldn't get the proportions to work. I suspect the split cockpit would have ended up with too skinny of legs for a pretty tall bot, or too fat of a cockpit if they increase the leg thickness.

That'd probably be more appropriate for the Earthrise thread.

It is still in stock, online only, but, you need to have a Target RedCard in order to purchase. That might be why you can't complete a purchase. I went through getting a Redcard specifically for this reason when he first came out.

If you plan on getting a Redcard yourself, I would highly recommend applying in-store instead of online. You won't be able to use the card online until it actually arrives, and the in-store application/verification process seems to go quicker than online. On top of that, Target often gives some type of incentive when you apply in-store that they don't give online. In my case it was a $40 off your next purchase coupon, so my Redwing (plus a small gift for my daughter) ended up being free. That deal is no longer going on, but they may have another to make the hassle a little more worth it.

Hmm, maybe try from a computer. That is what I was looking it up from, and it still shows available, and let me at least try to complete an order. I already have one I didn't go any further.

I just grabbed Soundblaster today. He's a pretty good figure. My only issue is that the chest door is designed to hold two of the cassettes, but it's a VERY snug fit and makes it hard to remove if you put two in

Yeah, almost broke a new ratbat trying to get the cassettes out, definitely not a good idea

Cool, I'm likely picking him up with him being the cheapest out of some options (G1, KFC) avialable though there are things I like and dislike in all of them. Just wishing he was a bit bigger to be A brute for Galvatron as he's going with the rest of the Takara headmaster figures (and TR Galvatron is sporting an enlarged noggin from CW Cyclonus).

Yeah he's in smyths in Ireland too.

Seen him today along with seige optimus prime. Looks to be part of a batch that's following a further release of megs and springer.

Was kinda surprised as usually this late means we won't get em at all.

Bought my own on amazon ages back but its great to see him in brick and mortor stores.

Picked up the good (spinister), the bad (crosshairs) and the monkey (apeface) today. Ok so Crosshairs is pretty good (and the only version of the mold I wanted) and Apeface is the bad.

Not transformeed them yet, but first impressions is spinister is awesome and can easily fir with what few g2 style decepticons I have or go with hos Japanese series buddys.

Crosshairs, gonna have to stick some wheels on him in bot mode. The white chest area kind of reminds me of Kenners Joker figures with blue faces when they should be white.
One slightly looser knee but no leg panel problems and hides his hollows well (or better than a lot of siege figs anyways).

Apeface,,Galvatron asked him if he could paint fences, he can but also gets it all over himself, probbaly the worst battledamge look of all siege figures. Those elbow joints look scary. im sure he's competing with mindwipe by having hypnotism mirror love handles (the pins). Whilst it has some of the potp features to plug a pink tm/prime into his butt, the siege style of a faction symbol on a raised surface just ruins the symbol (on a leg in robot mode). I'm glad to have him, just hope he grows on me and he's not a figure that has to hide in shame.

Hopefully Amazon comes through on the Amazon exclusives and then i Just need the three big buys (omega, rainmakers,sdcc micros) and a few battlemasters to finish what Im wanting of Siege -unless they decide to do the missing members of the micro teams.

Found Apeface last night at a Walmart that I usually don't go to since it's both out of the way and has a tendency to let older figures sit on the shelves unsold, so I was surprised to see both the newer Apeface and even Vintage G1 Astrotrain (which I didn't buy) there.

I also found Rung last Sunday at a Target that's pretty far out of my way but I just happened to be driving that direction that day, so things worked out. That Target also had Singe, but I didn't buy it.
