Heh. I was just admiring her today and said "I might pick her up". Hopefully I find her before she starts to become popular around here.

More new-old stuff: a universe minicon 10 pack of redecos, and repackaging of surplus scouts from the first movie.

linky.

I went to my wal-mart again yesturday and they this big thing filled with new or new-er figures in my area. They had a ravage(that I picked up), alot of mudflaps(yes he is out), and on the other side there was voyager megatron, mixmaster, and all the other voyagers packed in there. So yes, mud flap is out, so everyone happy hunting and hopefuly you can complete your set of "the twins".

Concerning combining Jetfire and Optimus Prime, do you need the new Prime or can it be done with the first Movie Prime (Talking about Leader Class Prime of course)?

Dammit, I don't want to have to buy a new Prime just to combine with Jetfire.

I'll just make it work.

Now don't go by me just yet, because I havn't goten the new prime just looked him really good at walmart all I have the old prime and I kinda hate it. his feet don't transform right but oh well when I get the new prime I'll keep him in robot mode and the old one in truck mode.

An as for that last part ducktape will fix anything

EDIT: Clay might know the answer seeing as hes kinda a guru on this from what i've seen.

And I don't really have the room for a redecoed Prime.

And it goes against my rule of not getting figures I already have regardless of new features or gimmicks.

And yes duct tape fixes all of life's problems.

the prime/jetfire mode is just a gimmick anyway. kinda looks bad, and half-ass done. Your not missing out I've heard it's the same way in the film to but oh well Bay's done worse things like the brawl/devastator thing in the first one. I', just getting the new prime so I can have one that won't fall over ever 3 sceonds.

The new Prime is not a redecoed version of the old Prime. It's a completely new mold with a much more movie accurate robot mode, vehicle mode and transformation. HE's larger, better proportioned, more complex, and significantly more accurate over all.

Well, the first part of my post still stands, so unless the price of Leader Prime goes down, it's unlikely I'm going to get him.

Especially since there's still Jetfire and two sets of Constructicons I plan on getting and I don't know what else.

Actually, I was addressing the first part of your statement because it is *not* a re-deco in the first place, so, it is not a matter of making room for a "redeco". It's a completely different, and far superior mold. They're as different as night and day.
If I were you, I'd pack away the "07 Prime and replace it with the RotF Prime.

I know that was what you were talking about.

I was talking about the first part of the first statement about not having the storage for it in the first place.

Neither do I, but that doesn't stop me.

That was actually the point in remolding the new Optimus Prime. The old one just can't combine. You can try though? I mean so far there are several people who have taken Demolisher, Rampage, and Mixmaster and have "Retooled" them into combining into one another making a partial Devastator. Even though there not meant or designed to form devastator on the toy line.

Also has anyone seen the new waves yet? The ones that include mudflap, ravage, barricade, or the human alliances?

I picked up Human Aliance Bumblebee (absolutely excellent figure!) a week ago in Hamilton in Scotland. They have plenty of stock of him in Argos over here...

As to new waves, I have only just found the first wave (i.e. Sideswipe, Rampage, Sideways, Breakaway - with a few Bumblebees and Soundwaves still shelfwarming a lot of places, while Universe remain in ROTF displays elsewhere) in the last week in actual stores (Play.com have been selling them online for a while though). And just Voyager Prime, Starscream and Demolishor (not seen Ironhide - is he a hot seller?!?!). But Legends press on, with Sideswipe, Starscream and Ratchet turning up now - but where's Megatron?

Does anyone know if there are any plans for a Rampage redeco?

play.com had leader prime on preorder, but kept pushing the date further and further back. in the end i cancelled and store-bought (fenwicks).

and what ever happened to the drop in VAT? i only ever seem to get it at supermarkets any more.

as far as i know, only americaland is on to wave 2 so far.

so far ive only seen wave one legends (springer, bee, prime, jetfire), but i'll check again today.
