There is always a worry when it comes to exclusives, especially when it comes to toys sporting the logo of a particular store or brand. Like Leadfoot with his Target logo. That character has had a long history of exclusivity, which sure made Canadians worry (along with any other country that is not the US). Well, luckily, it seems he'll be one of the easier exclusives for Canadians to get this year. Not only is he appearing at Toysrus stores all across the country but he is also available online. The price is $29.99 CAD.
Canadians can purchase him at the following link.

While I love the MP figure, I think that this leader is as close to MP as we're going to get without it being called that. I've been thinking about getting MP-08X but he's so expensive, I might just get this SS leader and paint his legs blue. I wonder if this leader could hold the MP's sword.

I don't know where you are hearing that from but it sure ain't from me or anyone else I discuss this with. Between the deluxes in WFC, Cyberverse and Studio Series, it is the Studio Series ones that have the least articulation, usually lacking either waist, wrists, ankles or a combination of all those.

As for Grimlock and Blurr, I don't need em. My Legends Blurr does the job great and I find him sleeker while my MP Grimlock is basically the same scale so I don't need this one, especially when this leader seems based on the MP figure (which is amazing for those who don't have the MP).


Although it drove me nuts that the mold was used sooo many times in TR, that Legends Blurr mold is really great. It's amazing what can be done when you don't need to worry about where a head goes. I'm still going for 86 Blurr, but that Legends one is solid.

The next wave of SS Deluxes - B-127 and Dino!

B-127.JPG

SO glad we're finally getting a Dino! It's certainly been a long time coming.

I'm ok with the unlicensed vehicle mode, Ferrari is notoriously a pain in the butt to work with so I can understand why they didn't go with that.

Robot mode looks pretty good, although I'm wondering how far that backpack sticks out, looks like most of the car is folded up back there.

As for B-127, it looks kinda cool but after hearing the feedback on Cliffjumper I'll probably skip.

I'm a dumb completionist so this is my second full set of these dudes and I especially feel this way. Sure, five of the eight have tiny differences with the mud paint apps/little bit of extra gold on Devastator's face and teeth, but overall this was very disappointing for me personally. I expected some stealthy additional paint here and there like on the old Premium Series lineup from '07, but nope, can't even get that on here. I don't recommend this at all for anyone that bought the individual releases.

Isn't it cheaper to buy all of the constructicons at standard MSRP? For the price increase, I would have hoped for some additional accessories. Maybe some small figures of Skids and Mudflap at least. I could understand getting this if you are a completionist, but if you just missed one or two figures and don't want to pay scalper prices, then I feel that the knockoffs are a better(and cheaper)option.

Devastator is comprised of two leaders, four voyagers, and two deluxes. Assuming leaders are 50, voyagers 30, and deluxes 20, that would be 260 dollars, right?

Correct. It is the same price to buy all 8 individual and as the boxset.

I didn't get the box set. I was really hoping for some repaints to make it more worth it, but as soon as the minimal paint app differences were revealed I decided not to.

On a different note, I am so happy Dino is finally getting a toy. I am excited for it!!!!!

Not counting tax, it is technically about 7 cents cheaper to buy all the components individually at MSRP, and if you take into account that they're often sold a dollar or two below MSRP then it would definitely be cheaper to do so, but I personally missed half of them when they were on shelves because I was unemployed last year, and when I was waffling on going back to get them on the aftermarket we got the news about this set so I decided to just get the box set instead out of convenience. Except now I'm going to have to write an angry letter to Hasbro about Hightower's missing head.

Any ideas as to whether or not Perceptor would be included in the SS86 line?

Yep with Blaster before Rumble cracks the shell to crack the nuts inside. Pretty sure both of them will show up in ss86 but then again there has been a MP cassette for Blaster for years without a MP Blaster.

Everyone assumed we would see Blaster at some point in the wfc Trilogy but unless he's an exclusive of some fashion next year, it could be a longer wait. Unless they do a retool of Netflix Soundwave under SS 86 :-?

Yes, he warns Magnus of the decepticon Attack early in the movie.

That's mostly more a cameo than anything else though. The main characters will be the first ones to be made for sure. But it's a certainty that anyone who appeared in the movie just a bit will have a SS figure sooner or later.

SS 1986 Devastator anyone? Especially if they go the SS ROTF Devastator route, making something clearly superior from the substandard CW/UW versions.

Perceptor was in the whole movie. First he alerted Ultra Magnus to the Decepticons' arrival at Autobot City, then he informed Blaster to contact Optimus Prime on Moonbase One, then he boarded the Autobot Shuttle captained by Ultra Magnus and directed its crew to touch down on the Plant of Junk for repairs, then help work on the ship's repairs until Galvatron showed up, then he joined in the "Dare to be Stupid" battle and dance party with the Junkions, then he took part in the battle against Unicron aboard the Junkions' ship, and finally he stood triumphant with the other Autobots at the end of the movie.

No, no it's not.

Am I the only one around here that is quite satisfied with the Unite Warriors release? The only things I would fix are stronger shoulder and elbow joints, maybe put the Combiner head on a ball joint.

It very much is not, especially considering the prominent Movie characters that are getting new figures in Kingdom.

According to the leaker Pixelmaster over on TFW, Hasbro considered an SS86 Devastator at one point, but shelved it and decided to reissue the CW one instead.

How is it everyone is forgetting probably his most important role in the movie!? :shock:
