I saw WW Grimlock and Prowl the other day. Be surprised at the size of them. They are way bigger than WW Jetfire. And the boxes were surprisingly a little heavier. I think you could use them as weapons if an intruder broke into your home!

Saw Acid Storm for the first time at Target, bought it immediately.

Galvatron was there too, didn't bother. Still waiting to see Sideswipe and the new Legends molds.

Also...going after those K-Mart Mini-Cons ASAP!

Here's what I got. Animated Soundwave. He's short, but boxy and bulky. The bright teal looks like it could glow in the dark! (sadly, it can't) Now begins the liberation of robotkind!
 

Got a complaint?

Parcel arrived from HTS containing Sideswipe, Silverstreak, and Sentinel Prime. Reviews for the later two should be up within a week or two.

As usual had some difficulty getting my payment through at BBTS (my fault entirely ), but I finally got it through so City Commander should be here within the week! *starts counting hours*

Got Animated Starscream and Optimus, yesterday. Both the Voyagers. Love them muchly, but they both, Prime especially feels very loose up around the shoulders. And Starscream keeps popping out and trying to fold back into jet mode is I touch him. Is this common, or should I return him?

I don't have Starscream, but, yes, Prime is very loose in the shoulders and arms, making it very difficult to balance his axe with one hand. Fortunately, he looks even more awesome with it in both hands, even if his articulation is more limited.

I received Animated Blitzwing today as a gift from a co-worker as a "congratulations you got promoted!" gift. Very pleased with the figure, both alt modes are decent, while neither is perfect, they will do. The robot mode is very cool, one of the few TF figures I have that can cross his arms convincingly.

I FINALLY picked up Onslaught! Yes!
 

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

Two things:

1: WTF are those purple things on his forearms for?!

2: Is it just mine, or is the gear at the back of his head hard to turn, in that you end up turning his face manually instead?

EDIT: Picked up Powerglide yesterday!

God I hate Gigantic Sigs...

We've already been through this. The purple buttons are cosmetic only, and they compact in Vehicle Modes. The faces are hard to turn at first.

Aww... i thought they actually had a purpose...

I'm really fed up of blitzwing's hands being open. He can't hold any weaponry...

That is one of his shortcomings. If only his turret could flip over his shoulder...

I believe the official names are "Icy", "Hothead", and "Random".

I haven't heard him referred to in the manner you describe, and haven't a clue what 'Dietrich' refers to (though there is a Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was part of the German Resistance against the Nazis in WWII). However, I think 'schwartzen' probably refers to Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom Blitzwing's Hothead face kindda sounds like.

EDIT: Animated Blitzwing's entry in the TFwiki has the three faces (the first picture on the left hand side) labeled as 'Arnold', 'Dietrich', and 'Blot'.
'Arnold' links to Arnold Schwarzenegger; 'Dietrich' to Colonel Dietrich from Indiana Jones; 'Blot' to Phantom Blot a villain in a Mickey Mouse cartoon. Not familiar with the last two, but I assume they're similar to "Icy" and "Random" respectively. Who knew?

Their official names are in fact Blitzwing, Blitzwing and Blitzwing. The personalities are identified as Icy, Hothead, and Random.

YAY!

Oil Slick, Soundwave and Snarl! And universe Galvy!

My galvy doesn't break a part, but he's hell loose, and crap in everything but tank mode. I do like turning his right hand into a missile launcher.

Snarl is dino mode. Other mode not worth mentioning. Weapon can't be held well.

Soundwave. Gets a meh from me. I expected better. Laserbeak RAWKS!

Oil Slick: AWESOMENESS. Too short a chain, though.

Went down to K-Mart for the first time in a while the other day, got the Mini-Con 12-pack (using all the cash I had left after winning an SoC Evangelion...). Totally awesome!

Galvatron is looking more and more tempting, but I'm trying my very hardest to stay away.

Got universe Silverstreak. Very Happy with him.

Got my Ultra Magnus Armor... and I need to change my pants.
 

All that was needed was a catalyst and the machines of war are set in motion.
