@Will

Didn't you already have that Drift and Barricade? If yes, exchange them, if not, they're keepers. One thing for sure is that Bee gotta go. One thing for sure is you have to keep Barricade if you don't have it. He's a classic figure lost in a Movie line and I like it. I hope you'll too.

As for Steelbane, if you have the patience to use Pledge floor Finish, you have something that still look awesome and is interesting. I'd keep it.

Thanks for the feedback, thats what I will do. And yes I did have those 2 but I returned them to walmart since I thought they sucked and I was waiting to see if they would issue box sets with beter paint apps like last time. But since its not the case, I got them again because of the deal with the coupons.
I opened barricade :)

Do any of the fans here live in San Jose, CA? Because this is where the latest deluxes from Transformers: The Last Knight. At the Walmart on Story Rd, to be more precise. These are the wave 3 deluxes which include a new Bumblebee and practically new Crosshairs, a redeco of Strafe and a rerelease of the Drift toy that came in wave 2. Cogman is not part of this wave. For those who are not in the area, this wave is now available for preorder at BBTS, confirming the case content just described.
These were found by a cousin of TFW2005 user Gallade.

Good luck with the hunt!

Will, Barricade is the best of that group by far. Great figure, you've heard all my praise for him. Keep him for sure.

As for the others, return the Bee. the other 2, I have no interest in getting, so I don't have them in any capacity, so I cannot really speak for them.

However, I will say this about a different set of movie figures: the wave 3 voyagers are the best of the best. Scorn is my favorite dinobot mold of any dinobot ever. He is a great figure, large, heavy, transformation is fun, posable, and extremely well painted. He feels like such a great mold, and he is so pleasing to both look at and play with.

Nitro Zeus is my favorite figure of the year, period. I have had him for a few weeks, and he is still an absolute joy. He is so much fun and so playable! The transformation is cool, pretty complex, but yet easy once you do it once or twice. The jet mode is delicious, and the robot mode is awesome. Couple that with the titan master compatibility, and you have an all around awesome figure. He will be figure of the year for me, and he is my favorite movie decepticon ever and right up there in contention for best movie figure period.

I'm just glad I got them from tfsource. You will need to talk about both once you get them. they are amongst the best voyagers to come out in the movie lines and over the past several years in general. you gotta find yourself a legion Crosshair too, so you can have him riding his big buddy

well thats the deal, no one does. But since they are packaged as much as the non repaints they cant afford to seperate them or else every collector they cater to will buy the new molds and the rest will never sell and they will lose money.

Yeah, the wave 1 flood has hit really hard near me, as well. Absolutely NOTHING but Barricade, Slash, Bumblebee, and Voyager Grimlock. We finally got the Voyager Prime for the first time a couple weeks ago, and then I saw Leader Megs and Prime for the first time last week. Literally nothing else new, in any size class.

Also, more bad news: Most of the time, I'll ask an employee if they have anything new in back, and this last visit to my local Target, the employee told me they "haven't been getting any new shipments in." and that it was "Bizarre, it's almost like they've been discontinued." That's kind of unnerving.

I get that discontinued bit from staff all the time, don't mind it. As soon as they see 0 in stock and 0 coming in for the next few shipments (which is like 2 weeks), they automatically say discontinued when we know its not the case.

Still havent seen wave 2 and wave 3 is showing up, glad im not collecting movie figures. Hasbro really needs to fix this distribution problem, it went from the last wave not showing up to multiple waves never showing up, and its in every single line not just one.

By Rodimus Prime's request, I made a few COMPARISON SHOTS BETWEEN LEADER '07 MEGATRON'S AND LEADER TLK MEGATRON'S VEHICLE MODES a few pages back.

After playing with my '07 "icy" voyager Megatron, why not do the same and compare it to the TLK voyager? So here's the comparison for the jet/spaceship modes.

Image

Right of the bat, '07 voyager Megs is WAY more fun to fiddle with than the leader. Easier transformation, better look overall, and it just ooze personality. Sure, that spaceship mode is mostly Megs doing the "Superman", but it give him a much more streamlined look than the leader.

That said, the TLK voyager is a much, much better toy in every ways. The transformation is still fun and Megs change shape completely. The jet is perfectly sleek with barely any undercarriage and is a much more better design. Despite the TLK awesomeness, it dosent remove any love and appreciation for the good old '07 voyager though.

As you just saw above, '07 is more massive and chunkier than the TLK. However, both bot modes are relatively the same size. Seeing these two toys side by side show me how not only the toy designs and technology have improved in 10 years, but how Megatron himself have also matured. The guy now understand a bit better that Transformers need to make an effort to be... in disguise! :-P

Nothing but Berserker's and Slash's in my area as far as deluxes. Not even the occasional Barricade or Bumblebee anymore. At least wave 2 voyagers finally started coming in.

I mentioned in another thread that this line is reeeeeally giving me flashbacks to to the 3rd movie line. DotM had the same problem with a first wave made of repaints and characters who weren't even in the movie (stupid twins and Jolts everywhere), and shelfwarmed for months because of it. End result was the final wave was cancelled. Really not going to be shocked if Cogman, the only deluxe left I really want, doesn't see wide release.

But if I recall, a big problem with DOTM was the swarm of Bees everywhere. And in this line, that deluxe we all crap on is selling like hotcakes. So while there are som similarities, the toys we constantly see are totally different.

I mean, those DotM Bees were new molds, but I feel pretty comfortable lumping those in with repaints since they were the same character that already had 5 deluxe molds and like a dozen repaints and variants in the previous two lines. The two more molds they dropped in DotM put him at 7 deluxes and god knows how many variants in a 5 year span. Everyone already had a Bee (and probably a better mold than the crappy DotM toys, too), so of course he was a pegwarmer.

In comparison, in the last 5 years there's really only been three deluxe movie Bee molds, the two from AoE and the new TLK deluxe that hasn't seen wide release yet. He's the second most popular character in these movies, so yeah, of course he sold better this time, kids haven't been able to buy him in three years.

My comparison was more about how they again had repaints (Bee, Grimlock) and characters who aren't even in the movie (Slash, Berserker appears for like 5 seconds) as the freaking premier wave of this line when new molds and more relevant/popular characters would have made way more sense, and would have sold by now instead of lingering on shelves for months. There's a reason all the Primes and Barricades were scooped up while everything else just lingers. Why would stores want to restock with waves 2 and 3 when wave 1 just sat around taking up space? Hasbro made the same mistake as DotM, and it may cost us some good figures like it did that time too.

While a good part of the world has had this toy out for quite a while, Knight Armor Hound was never found in the US, until now. Panda Prime has found this Hound at Walmart. This makes the Knight Armor subline fully out at retail. The only toys from Transformers: The Last Knight line still not found in the US are the wave 3 one steps, wave 3 legions and leader Dragon Storm so let us know if you find them.

Congrats 3 people looking for him!

Can't wait to find Dragonstorm, but I JUST found Scorn and have only found Staffe from wave 3. Not looking great for getting last knight without relying on e-stores:\

I found a leader Megs and a leader prime about two weeks ago at the local Target. No Dragon. I snagged Megs. I checked back the other day, and leader Prime was still shelf warming in the exact same spot, and nuthin else new. Gonna have to check some other stores.
