    That sucks. Their toy selection hasn't been as on point as usual, but they haven't been terribad.

    Stopped by the local classic toy warehouse BobaKhan:

    They have a pretty awesome classic Transformers selection, including Scorponok and Maximus in box. I'd love to go back to Japan and check out their best toy stores, hopefully catching great stuff like Omega Supreme in box.

    Gobots still suck.


    Puzzler is an excellent G1-style combiner, that would have a nice spot in any TF collection.

    Late to the dinobot conversation but I would have preferred more members to be added. Mainly because I like dinosaurs but if they had added ankylosaurus dinobot I would have been all over that.

    Tonka had no idea what they were doing in America with that line. Machine Robo was far greater.

    Interestingly, they had a sixth member before they turned into dinosaurs

    Their newest sixth member is a double-headed dragon girl!

    Damn. Terrorcons are in my Top-3 all time favorite combiner teams (alongside Menasor and Predaking). My wallet won't be happy about this.

    I love the Fire Convoy/RID 2001 toy. I bought him and Magnus in for 60 USD total.

    Even with inflation and Takara import fees,the most I'd consider would be 125.

    I'd even go as far as saying $150 for me to get another set. That's highway robbery IMO for that set.

    Not sure if any of you have heard, but MP Dinobot is suspected to be $250 at retail. All of the pre-order sites show that as the tentative price. I am waiting for the overseas sellers to chime in before I get worried.

    Apparently someone on tfw2005 in Sierra Vista, Arizona found the new POTP Jazz and Dreadwind in Target.

    In contrast, I havent even seen Titans Return Wave 5/6 yet. lol.

    Looks F'N Great. Too bad your wallet is about to get slagged with this release. If you look at the raptor mode chest, it even allows you to do the "chest bursting" transformation step from the show.

    I just got POTP Slag,Swoop,and Dreadwind in the crappiest stocked Target in my neighborhood of Tampa,FL

    They were in a brown cardboard box with 2 sets of the 4 deluxe figures. It seems Target is doing a big holiday reset across the US.I asked the girl to open the box for me lol.
    They were 17 each ,a bump from 15 for the last 5 years of generations.

    It's remarkable because this Target only changes it's toy section like once a year lol.

    So let your hunt begin.

    I bought MPM-4 this weekend. Hate on the Bay movies if you want, that thing is the truth. Like the ROTF release, it's a marvel of engineering and nails all of the marks. It's $99 at TRU right now. My store had about 12 LOL.

    I just bought the MB-11. Without a doubt, it's getting sold.

    Pardon the crap on the table LOL

    Has anyone used Brickseek to do an inventory search?

    I used it to score TR Overlord a while back.

    If anyone is looking for the POTP deluxes, the DCPI (Target) is 087-06-5863

    I used the site with the DCPI you posted to look for POTP figures over the weekend, but it came up negative for all my stores in a 25 mile radius.

    I havent seen Overlord at all( or any leader besides Blaster/PM Op/Soundwave).

    I got TR sixshot a few months ago on HasbroToyshop; I will probably get Overlord from online now that the busy time of the year is upon us.

    So because I am impulsive I grabbed the POTP Slug and Swoop. I think they are cool, but feel like they should have been bigger. I am sure that one of these KO companies will be making an oversized version of them because reasons.

    Target is having a 25 % off toys (excluding lego/videogames) today only.

    Also, Wave 1 of POTP Legends toys has been spotted at Target.
    This wave consists of: Beachcomber, Windcharger, Dinobot Slash, and a repack of the 2013 Skrapnel.

    Amazon has TR Sixshot for $25.

    So me being impulsive with the hunt, I came out of Classics collection retirement and bought the following in the last week. These are some of my thoughts on each

    Slug - Decent figure. I really wish it had the wings from the G1 mold as it clearly could have been added. Due to the combiner gimmick and it's size it suffers. IMO, this should have been a voyager release set, with Grimlock as the leader class release. I also think that the Dinobot's combining is a bad idea. Judging from some of the Volcanicus pictures, it's gonna be the second worst set next to Menasor. C+

    Swoop - I like the figure's more slender silhouette. Again like Slug, it's too small. C+

    Seaspray - Outside of the boat shoes, it captures the character nicely. B+

    Cosmos - Same as the previous legends release. Didn't buy it then but overall a decent figure. Pretty cool as to how if goes from a flying saucer to robot. B+.

    Windcharger - Love it. The head could have been a tad darker to break up the silver, but it's otherwise a G1 figure with 2017 engineering. A

    Beachcomber - Perfect. There is nothing else that really could have been done to make this a better release. A+

    Dreadwind - I skipped over this one initially, and I am now glad I didn't. I thought it was a straight recolor of the Aerialbot mold, but there is some retooling done to make things interesting. I love the colors of the figure and it's a great homage to the original toy. I won't use it for the combiner limb, but I am patiently waiting for the Darkwind release. B+

    Skipped out on Jazz. The RTS mold is light years ahead of what the 2017 figure has going on.

    The more I see Ryu, the more I hate it. The rest I find so ridiculous yet full of awesome. I was expecting some remolding of the Titan Master component (especially with the price tag).
