TR Slugslinger: Found this guy at Wally World at random after months of the same old figures. He's a nice little figure and a fine addition to my Decepticon jets. If you've got Misfire there really is nothing new here, but I like him anyways. TR Kup: Another find at Walmart. I appreciate his alt mo...

Titans Return Seaspray . I have to admit, he's pretty cool, and it's the first time I've ever had Seaspray in any form. I'm just trying to figure out how to get a Titan Master into him. When you've got him in vehicle mode the yellow portion on his back end flips up. You can fight curled up titan ma...

I saw Trypticon in a real, physical store yesterday! It was neat. I did the adult thing and left it there in favor of paying bills, but not without a test of willpower first, lol. I snagged mine at a Think Geek store in the local mall. The local TRU to me never carries the good exclusives or the bi...

TR Sky Shadow: Found this guy for $20 at the local Walmart and couldn't pass him up at that price. I was going to skip him for Overlord but I'm glad I didn't. If anything Sky Shadow made me more excited for Overlord. He's a big chunky figure with pretty okay articulation. His jet is very "Swoosh-ab...

TR Sixshot: The local Wal-Mart just got done with it's inventory and so restocked a bunch of stuff just put out leader figures, so I picked up this big guy. He's interesting to say the least. Never owned the original, so having this version is a little bit of a thrill for me. I really enjoy the ide...

Good to hear. I've got a Thunderwing head waiting for one, and whilst it'll be a decidedly overpriced toy overall it does come together in pics as if it was intended. Good deal. When I say he's bigger, Astrotrain/Sentinel Prime is actually a touch taller at the head, but Nitro has more bulk and mas...

TR Seaspray: Randomly found this little fat guy at Walmart when I stopped in. His transformation is simple and expected, but it gets the job done. He's a cute little update to the minibot he once was. TLK Nitro: First impression of this guy is that he's big. He's bigger then the TR voyagers I have ...

TR Shuffler and Repugnus Found these two little guys hanging out at the local TRU and decided to take them home. Repugnus is a pretty neat adaptation of his beast mode, although the other modes are meh at best. I kind of like having the daft little bugger sitting on my desk. Shuffler, however, was ...

Titans Return Fortress Maximus

Found the big guy at an Ollie's Bargin Outlet for $40USD. Haven't opened him up yet, as I'm staying at a friend's house for a few days, but I couldn't pass him up at less then the price of a Leader class figure.

Popped into a few B&Ms near me - seen the Deluxes, but no Leaders. That bootleg Rook is insane - its massive! Don't know that I'd pay £15 for it though. The Entertainer has reduced the RID Minicon things again. They also had the new Last Knight figures. £23.99 for a Deluxe?! £32.99 for a not much b...

To be fair, Chromedome's transformation sequence is almost exactly like Dead End and company's from Combiner Wars, so if you are familiar with them you can manage Chromedome without much effort. But yes, over all the toys have been getting simpler and I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. I'...

Titans Return Twinferno w/Daburu: I had Doublecross as a kid, so seeing a modern reimagining of him I had to pick him up. Sadly I am underwhelmed. His arms are...meh at best, his guns are loose where they are supposed to peg in, his dragon mode is a slab with beast parts hanging off of it. All that...

While mine so far hasn't shown signs of cracking yet, I'm curious. What's the trick?

Cyclonus with Nightstick?

He's not really new but he's the only one to come to mind. I'm only counting him because he actually came with a Targetmaster.

TR Brainstorm: A solid remold of Blurr. I finally tracked down the bugger at a Walgreens two hours from my house when I stopped in on a whim to see if they had him. Now I just need Chromedome and I'll have the principle 4 that are available as deluxes. I love the shade of green they picked for him ...

CW G2 Menasor: My wife found him for $40 at a local discounter, so she snagged him as an anniversary present for me. I love the daft G2 colors they picked out for the team. Drag Strip looks way more awesome then he did before. I adore the teal and purple on Breakdown. Over all I'm pleased as punch ...

That's not even getting into the distribution problems. Most stores arounder me seem to have adopted the UK model of overstocking the first wave and then having no follow up. I found a comic shop near me, a small place, that also sells toys/games and they get in 1 to 2 cases of each wave depending ...

Titans Return Wolfwire: He's a surprisingly nice update to Weirdwolf I really like. His robot mode is nice and chunky and his wolf mode does what it needs to do. His transformation is pretty standard for a quadruped beast transformer. My only complaint is that his claws have some kind of thin/slopp...

Skullcruncher seems to be a bit of a disaster, QC-wise. Loose hips, thigh swivels, hands and beast claws all seem to be a thing, and it really seems to be a matter of "how bad" rather than some being good and some having issues. See, mine is perfectly fine. No super looseness anywhere. My Scourge, ...

I'd agree with you, but it lets me make puns and dad jokes about him being a "Think Tank" with his Int of 9.
