You saw the Enegron Saber? I thought that wasn't coming out until the summer.

Since I took a sick day from work, I figured I'd take a look around and see if I found anything. At Wal-Mart and Toys 'R Us I saw:
  • Megazord Prime (looked better than I thought it would, but still not buying it.)
  • Ironhide (Ugh.)
  • Treadbolt (They made Armada Scavenger look even worse? Yowza.)
  • Battle Ravage (Meh.)
  • Skyblast (Meh.)
  • Strongarm (Meh.)
  • Hot Shot (Like the vehicle mode, hate the robot mode.)
  • Ironhide (Too blocky.)
  • Energon Saber minicons (Wow, another repaint of this set.)
I was hoping I'd like them better once I saw them in person, but I still think the Unicron repaint is the only Energon figure I'll be getting, and that's only if I can find him cheap. Oh well. I guess I can take comfort in the money I'll be saving for BinalTech.

spotted em while at walmart with my ex...bought none due to lack of funds...and the fact that not a single one of them sparks my interest

The Futon, it's a couch that turns into a bed....the most disappointing transformer of all.

I still haven't acquired a saber team, so this works for me.

I've got the dark-sabre repaint, but I'll get them anyway - I'm a sucker for anything that resembles a sword...

They looked more orange-ish to me, but I'd say it's the same set as on Hasbro's site.

Yes and he is not as bad as everyone gives him credit for. I like him way better than Armada Prime (not the bendy one).

I am going to be selective with this new line.

I bought Ravage, Starscream, and Prime .

I want Scorponok, Megs, maybe Perceptor, maybe Star Saber team.

I am not going to pick up a whole lot, I have been thinking about that Hot Shot, but I dunno....It is a lot better than the Armada one, but Combining....I just don't know if I want the pair or not.

I have to say that I am impressed with the Basic line thusfar, the figures seem to have high detailing, and are still bigger than G1 Cars...hahahahha.

energon finally at Target

here is the DPCI number for mega assortment

087-06-0750

employees will know what to do with that number because currently there is no spot on the shelf, so they will probably sit in the backroom for a week or so...maybe

edit: new toy transition will not be set until january, so possibly no energon toys will be on target shelves until then

i tried looking for other energon assortments with no luck, all i have to offer right now is the mega assortment

Well, picked up Inferno and Hotshot, the PL Hotshot looks ok, but I think the PL Inferno looks better, he kind of has that PL Prime combined with Overload look to him.
