Cool! I will check my local WM tomorrow. I was worried we would not see this one because of combiner wars.

Now, we just need Arcee and Chromia!

Arcee and Chromia have been out in Honk Kong for a month now, they should be coming real soon.

Sorry, I cannot believe that. I have been looking at amazon daily looking for it for the last two weeks. The cheapest I have seen it for on there is $21. Same with Brainstorm. There is no way you picked it up on amazon at retail price.

I don't buy it. If they are telling the truth, then there should be no problem snipping the invoice and posting it here. The cheapest Chromia I have seen in the last three weeks was for $21 shipped.

Not that I think he is lying for sure as he could be telling the truth and they just went real quickly.

There's an issue where when Arcana's head is plugged into Brainstorm's neck socket, the clip that holds it in can grip it too tightly, and if you try to pop Arcana back out, it'll shear his head off.

The exact nature of the problem is simpler than you'd think. In order to remove Arcana, you must first push down a certain part of Brainstorm to "unlock" him. However, a misassembly issue (I forget where) can render that feature inoperable, locking Arcana permanently in place.

It's the latter. It was regular retail price when scotty posted, and sold directly from amazon. It sold out, and now is only available from third party sellers at inflated prices.

When I searched an hour ago it was showing it @16.99, but when I refreshed right after that, it was $21, so I thought it was a glitch.

Even if Scotty got it at $16.99, that is not retail. $14.99 is retail.

Did you see the same thing I did?

Actually, it depends on the retailer. And even different stores within a chain have different prices. A few of my local Targets have Generations Deluxes at $16.99 while other Targets have the normal $14.99. Some WalMarts in my area are the same as well. One in particular still has the $9.97 as a price, while others are at $14.99. Very odd.

I saw Gears and Acid Storm at my Target... I guess about a month ago? AC seemed to hang around longer than Gears.
Then there was nothing, and then loads of Swerves and Cosmoses. Haven't been there for a few weeks, though I suspect there'd be a lot of Swerves; he didn't do so well last time.


But never Skrapnel, so I had to get him online.
Image
(no Tailgate, either, but I'm not interested in him)

I really hope the Legends do better in 'Combiner Wars'. Trying to find the ones I wanted has been such a bother.
At least the one I really want (Bombshell) is in the 1st wave, that should be easy to get. Hopefully.

THE BRAINSTORM AFFAIR

Maybe he was poorly assembled at the factory as has been speculated, but I think it's worse than that. Brainstorm's Headmaster gimmick failure, is a tragedy of bad engineering and tooling. I'll give you my best analyses and remedy, but first...

Let's start with the positives :D
Image
Look at this beautiful little star fighter! It is a super sleek sci-fi space ship. So cool. So reminiscent of so many classic star fighter designs. This dog fighter would fit right in flying formation with Luke's X-Wing and Apollo's Viper. Such a great homage to the the original toys alt mode. And, how many other TFs come with a lil dude to pilot them.
His robot arms are a little clunky in alt mode and his feet and legs stick out oddly in the back, but I'm willing to look past it while he is zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzeeuuuusscchhhhhh, ZOUT ZOUT ZOUT ZOUT, FEEEUUUUSH ... all around the house, Seeker seeking.

Transformation is fast, fun, and easy.
Image
Then you get THIS GUY! Do I even have to say anything?
Look at'im! He's perfect!
That color is cooler than an ice cold Gatorade with 3 popsicles crammed in it. He's a double fisted lazOr slingin' Space Ranger.
Spot on IDW, an awesome modernization of the OG toy. He's a NeoClassic dream come true.
HI FIVE!!!!!


The NEGATIVES...
Let's start simple. He feels fragile. Another victim of flimsy plastic. His wrists are dangly. His seams gape. His paint apps are sloppy. And poor Arcana. My 3 year old could have done a cooler paint job.

What's up with the HEAD GIMMICK?
Note the hollow groove or slot inside his neck. They are on either side of the neck socket.
the piece in front is the spring-loaded lock mechanism.
Image
the grooves accept these nubs or pegs on either side of Arcana's head. That jutting rectangle in the back of his head, has a slot to accept the lock.
Image
The grooves and the lock are miss aligned, and the nubs on Arcana's head are too thick to fit through the space before the grooves, making a super tight fit, before the pressure on the nubs is relieved, by the grooves.
With me?
Once you push the head in, it falls in too far and the lock closes, too far over the slot.
Recap: 2 things.
1. There is too much pressure on the nubs, making it realy hard to get in and out.
2. The head falls too far in the neck socket, and the lock closes too far over the slot housing. making it even harder to get out.

Pulling it out is the hard part, and where you could break the head off of Arcana.
The ball joint on his neck is where people have been breaking Arcana. The ball is screwed on to a post that is attached to his head. Too much pressure, and the screw strips out of the post.
I had to pull super hard on that sucker. I was scared.
I got lucky.
Image
The ball popped out of the socket instead of stripping, But then getting the head out was even harder with nothing for leverage.

What I suggest.
Once you super carefully get Arcana detached, take an Xacto knife and shave along the contour of the curve at the top of the grooves.
Image
I shaved about 3 times on each side, still to tight. 3 more and it was OK. you'll just have to play with it until it feels right.

I also suggest you watch these two video reviews before attempting anything. In this order.
Baltmatrix

Peaugh's


Despite this problem, I REALLY LIKE THIS TOY.
Good luck y'all.
I'm tired.
Good night.

This kind of post is better to be done in the Toy Sightings forum. Like that you can inform people in your specific region where they can find certain toys. Because or else there wold be too many posts here. Feel free to read the first post in this forum for more specific guidelines. This specific thread only puts up the news of when something new is found to let other know it's coming their way.

It's funny. I live in Omaha, which is 4 or 5 times bigger than Council Bluffs. They sit across the river from one another. The Wal-Mart where I found Brainstorm always has everything a month or two before any retail chain in Omaha. I just don't get the shipping routes. One would think that logistically, after Council Bluffs, Omaha would be the next stop.

I also thought I would for sure find Gears and Acidstorm before Brainstorm.

Good luck on your hunt jogun. ;)

its a real shame that this appears to be widespread. im glad you didnt suffer any breakages ;)


Well it is BS. :lol:
I wonder if the Takara version will have fixed this issue. Might be worth waiting to see.
Plus, as always, the Tak version's paint looks a lot sweeter.

But apparently, less IDW based than the Hasbro one.

It's really a shame that Brainstorm has the issues he does. Without them he'd be darn near perfect.

I am a transformers fan for the toys mostly. Aside from the main shows, I am not too much into the fiction of it, so I rarely look at the bios. BUT this one kinda throws me for a loop. Its not that it's confusing, but Rattrap is one of the most important characters in the fiction I grew up with and his bio spends more time talking about literal trash than anything beast wars. Am I the only one who's upset with this bio?

Such is the curse of trilingual packaging and the resulting shortened bios.

No, I'm certain the English one had the same exact wording. I specifically remember the last line from my own Rattrap.

Maybe this bio is for the IDW Comics Rattrap, the one with all those Generations characters interacting with each other.

But is he a maximal or autobot in that series? Because he's a maximal in the packaging.
