    Don't know when but learned at Botcon that they will not have robot modes individually. Only vehicle modes and to form devastator. This isn't so much H's fault as they didn't get the information soon enough/last minute planning with the movie. The next incarnation, they should be able to do everything I'm guessing.

    Target Pasadena 2-story and Target Culver City each had a pair of Rancor sets. Bottom shelf. BIIIIG box.

    They are releasing MP Skywarp in the US this year, and MP Grimlock probably next year. US Skywarp will have a different, more toy-styled deco than the Japanese version.

Anyone with those stickers could just buy the line toys at Target or Wally and then put the sticker on. Ultra lame. Glad I'm not collecting these anyway. More details as I hear.
    That's exactly it, just buy any toy from Hasbro and they'll give you a sticker or 2 to put on whatever you like. They wouldn't give me a sticker on my badge though if I didn't buy anything.

    That's not why they didn't put bot modes in. They said it was because the Ultimate Devastator set they wanted it to be as big and solid and playable, so no bot modes. And then the regular figures, adding merge parts would have compromised their looks or made them too big for their pricepoints. IMO, both answers are unacceptable, but them's the breaks.

    I said in advance I was going, but I think only in the TF thread. They put it out on Saturday after the panel: http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?...articleid=3097

    Sorry I didn't get to see ya there.

    Conceptually, I think they could have had all the time in the world, and they would have kept this underwhelming Tonka-styling because they're trying to get the kid dollar with this turkey of a set.

    never cruise the TF section here, sorry. (Enough on scum and seibertron).

    always tryin to 1-up me, huh JT?

    my pics were better anyway

    Didn't know they put it out Sat. I just hadn't seen any other photos circulating around. What sux is that they didnt have 2 (for both modes). A definite must buy for me. I love how H lazied out and didn't turn the 'feet' around. No limits to Hasbro's laziness. .

    I made a successful toy run with JT tonight.

    I got Legends Optimus Prime, Medical Frigate Leia, Bearded Hoth Rebel Soldier, and an extra Utopau Clone Trooper, plus one of my favorite movies (Daniel Craig and Leiv Schreiber in) Defiance was on sale at Wal-Mart for $14.

    Saw lots of Comic Pack exclusives at WalMart in Oceanside (San Diego) this weekend. Either they just went out, or no one wants those things.

  9. #6399
    Probably no one wants these.

    My Wal-Mart has a lot of Jannik Sunber (Tank) vs. Amanan, and the occasional Rogue Squadron alien pilots. The Ewoks sold through though (I think).

    In addition (at all stores) Leia and Xizor are sitting bad, as are (inronically) Thrawn and Karrde.

    I think Luke and Deena Shan finally sold for the most part.

    This all does not bode well for those of us wanting the Yuuzhan Vong with Kyle Katarn and the upcoming Ulic Qel Droma and Exar Kun.

    Oh, and Leia (with Xizor) is not short, but scaled correctly to Carrie Fisher who is around 5 feet tall or so. Older Leia figures we became accustomed to were all the wrong height (new likeness, original Slave Leia, Yavin Ceremony, etc.) But her larger ankles (Hasbro said was necessary to articulate her there - for heck knows what reason?) also detract from the figure. You'd think the cleavage would be a selling point, though?
