I know masterpiece Soundwave is a Toys R us exclusive, but who has Masterpiece Prowl?
Here's my coverage of yesterday's Botcon events...
Hasbro panel live write-up: http://www.tfviews.com/news/main/1687
I didn't know they'd be putting out the SDCC exclusives today or I would have stayed down there overnight, but as I had no toothbrush and no change of clothes, I chose to head home since Sundays are usually dead at these things.
I was surprised Tycho didn't show up, it was a few blocks from his house, I could see his place from the central hotel tower.
Anyway, I'll be back in a little while to post more thoughts.
I guess I'll be buying SDCC Metroplex as well as skipping out on the Hasbro panel since it'll probably be a rehash of the Botcon reveals plus the fan bot reveal, I guess.
Saw plenty of Springer and Blitzwings at 2 Targets this weekend. That's already more than the total number of Grimlocks and Blasters that I've seen at retail.
Well JT and Bikerscout, here's the confirmation: http://news.toyark.com/2013/07/02/to...con-2013-91418
Bumblebee gets the Goldbug mask, they needed to fix him quickly using old parts he brought back from Earth, is how they explained it.
SDCC just got more expensive for me as well. I may need to forgo the Jetfire sky striker now.
I can't even preorder Slave 1 just yet either.
If there's anyone who's going to SDCC and wants to offset the price of the exclusives just a bit, and has no interest in the Bludgeon figure, I might be able to help. ;)
JT, I can't help but envision that sequence as something like this.
Wheeljack: "How do you feel, Bumblebee?"
Bumblebee: "I feel great! In fact, I feel like some sort of gold bug!"
Wheeljack: "I think maybe that should be your new name!"
Goldbug: "Um, yeah, dude, no. You ain't taking my name. I'm standing right here, for cryin' out loud. And this isn't like one of those crazy 'two Prowls' things, because I'm only obscure if you count finding freakin' Metroplex and indirectly killing damn Sixshot to be obscure, yo."
Then again EE's SDCC line is a nightmare. Not Hasbro nightmarish but they don't have anywhere near the inventory that Hasbro does.
I had a pretty good time at Botcon. The crowds were much lighter than last year. Good for those of us there, bad for the vendors and Fun Pub. It was great hanging out with JT and Bikerscout for a bit!
