Sculpted crab claws, nice! I was worried they'd consider the back half of the car "close enough." Would be super if they were articulated, and if his arms were colored like the rest of the vehicle, and if he could somehow defy gravity and stand on those two legs... but overall Clampdown looks amazing.

The eyes are what sold it for me, very expressive.

These are commander class. Not sure why they call is a minicon 4-pack. Wouldnt these be 2 packs since each gives you 2 toys? Also, that price is wack, each comes out to the price of a deluxe.

Yeah, really not feeling the prices here. That's bogus. That's literally making it $11 commanders and $6 minicons. Yeah no. Look cool, but that is just expensive :BOT:

The problem here is that the people at Entertainment Earth are idiots and uploaded the wrong photos. The price listed is for 2 4-packs of minicons, totaling 8 minicons for 33.99, which is actually a bit cheaper than the individuals price of about $5 each. The photos shown are clearly the 2-packs which have been seen earlier, which I imagine will actually retail for about $10 each (give or take a buck or two).

Oh dear, these kinds of 2-packs have always done disastrously bad at my stores. PCCs, HA Basics, Data Discs... lucky to see anything past Wave 1 (Data Discs shelfwarmed so long the packaging fell apart). Stores didn't even bother trying with the Legends+Targetmasters for the longest time. And they really expect another $5+ to the price will help matters?

I know I'm probably a bit late but for those of you who haven't pulled the trigger on fracture from HTS yet there's another coupon code HOLIDAYFF that will give you 25% off and free shipping.

I'm really thinking about it to get Fracture, Underbite and Shockwave. Should I? :BOT:

As a plastic crack enabler I'd say yes. I nabbed a couple this morning myself.

Legion Underbite? He's pretty neat!

Neither did the news staff at the time the article was written. We figured time was of the essence for these new releases.

At least you guys were able to order it, these codes dont work for anyone outside the states, so while you might have saved an extra 50 cents, you got a way better deal than most other fans out there who want to get them as soon as possible (and will beat them to owning them too).
