I like Grimlock and Swindle's artwork as well as they toys themselves. They're lookin good.

As for Alpha Q. I can't say I've seen much of him and he isn't looking very show colour inside the box. It looks like it could be better.

Dang, Alpha Q's only got the first 3 faces. Oh well, I'll still be getting it. Still don't understand why they felt inclined to put a chainsaw on him...

I refuse to believe that any Alternators aside from Sideswipe and Smokescreen exist. I've been to every Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us in this and 3 other cities and still NOTHING.

Figures. The only Transformers I buy anymore and I can't find them anywhere.

I say, is that Alpha-Q or ass?

So, what's the release date for Grimlock and Swindle now?

Spengs: Dead End and Tracks were spotted at Target in Chesterfield/Virginia a few days ago...
Tracks was also spotted in Richmond, as was Meister.

I want the swindle. Grimlock is cool, but right now, I am still going to go for Dead End.

Curses! Figures I live in the one part of Virginia that doesn't carry them. I could just solve all my problems by buying them online, but I'm a lazy, lazy man...

I haven't seen any Alternators except for Smokescreen and Sideswipe myself, I've checked all over Jersey and parts of CT with no luck. Found some Binaltechs in comic stores though. Maybe it's just the east coast, we don't really get many new things our way often.

I know, what gives? They're showing up in the most remote reaches of darkest Kansas yet a city 20 minutes away from the nation's capital gets squat? Unfair, I tell you!

Does that say for the combined forms of Optimus Prime & Wing Saber are flight mode and fight mode?

Will double check soon as my Energon (not superlink) Wing Saber will be arriving next week.

I prefer the Superlink way of naming them. At least they won't be using those names in Energon.

Optimus Prime Flight Mode = Wing Convoy
Optimus Prime Fight Mode = Wing Convoy Connon Mode or Combat Mode, something like that.
