Yep, my Wave 2 figures from HTS were waiting for me when I came home. I'm a happy camper again. :grin:

Uh, yeah no. RK says 39.8 for the two pack plus another 25 in shipping... So 65 for 2 deluxes or 33 each. (roguh rounding) Gonna have to think about that before I plunge. Paid worse in this hobby, but I don't mind the looks of Bravo or Offroad and am perfectly happy renaming them. I do kinda want Slignshot though, since I have a thing for Harriers

I think I'll wait to see if I can get the two exclusives without paying more than twenty bucks in shipping.

Was at a friend's house and I noticed something. CW Bombshell's head seems WAY too small. Thoughts?

Okay, I could have phrased that better. His head isn't that bad...But the fact that his alt-mode horn is positioned SO FAR UP ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD (which is the only thing I don't like about him) makes his head seem so much smaller.

Nah. Not yet. Now once we get the two exclusives and hit wave three or four, that's when we can get really wild.

And since the Combiner Wars system is based on Scramble City but is bigger, as well as more complex and advanced, I vote to nickname it "Scramble Nation". 8-}

I am sure. I'm sure I don't like it at all. Definitely gonna wait and see on this one, especially since I still intend to get Wave 3, as well as work on keeping up with the RiD toys.

I am willing to bet anyone a steak dinner that BBTS will have these eventually.

I think the problem is, Bombshell's head/face when commonly depicted is essentially two red eyes, the bridge of a nose, and a close helmet visor for a jaw that extends to each shoulder pylon. He usually doesn't have too much of a defined head proper, it's usually sunken into his shoulders. So When here's a gap between the shoulder pylons and the head, like on combiner wars bombshell. it look smaller than it actually is.

I'm less certain, but not hung up on fine dining. It'd be nice if these don't wind up being a complete headache to acquire.

I do wish they would've switched around more than just the heads for Slingshot and Wildrider. Wildrider, at least, could've mixed parts from Dead End and Streetwise (SW's chest, thighs, gun maybe)

maybe i'm just getting too lazy or lack of time i have to spend going store to store but i find it a lot easier to just order everything online i have a better time finding it online anyway although if i'm at a certain store and they happen to have a figure i'm looking for then great but most times i'm not that lucky so i just ordered them should get them right after my b-day :D
