Passing on all of the Wrecker sets except Springer. Initially was passing on him til I realized it's G1 toy colors. Will go nicely with the toy colors Galvatron, Scourge, and Cyclonus. I hope they do more characters in the toy colors.

I'll have to put a Repro-label on Springer though. I found it weird that they "teased" the Wreckers with Lift-Ticket, who has the most blatant WRECKERS printed on its side, but has the traditional Autobot insignia, while all of these newly announced Wreckers have their blue hammer insignia.

I'm super bummed about yesterday's drop. As a Pulse Premium member, I of course got their e-mail late & didn't know they were doing daily drops.

I didn't care about Leadfoot, but I WANT Masterdominus, but was logged out for some reason, and neither the website nor mobile app would let me log in for some reason (I got in immediately just now & preordered the Springer repaint, which...meh).

But man, I want that mammoth skeleton. :|
Pulse only had 850 of them. Why not preorder on Amazon?

If you do wind up ordering the set from Amazon, I'd be interested in Leadfoot.

Uh, who's that owl on WeirdWolf's back? Imma need.
Bat, not owl.

And that might be a little pricey, haha.

It's 3rd Party TFC Toys' Hellbat's Breastmaster. I was really bummed when I had to choose between more iconic (to me) villains for the Decepticon shelf over displaying Liokaiser in full, but I realized I could at least keep their Breastmasters on the shelf to maintain the spirit. The other five are at the front of the shelf. Jallguar's, Killbison's, Leozack's, Drillhorn's, and Guyhawk's, L-R.

Best I could find was a sold out listing on TF Source, unless you wanted to drop five hundy on the whole set on BBTS, lol

Nothing on eBay, either. BBTS has Drillhorn & Guyhawk separately, but that's it. At least the set has the new joints (that I am SO glad they are selling separately for $15, since I have the first run from 6-7 years ago).

Anyone have a suggestion for a good replacement head for Nightprowler? The head isn't bad, but him looking exactly like Cheetor bugs me a little. I know why he does, and the history behind it. Just looks odd to me. Kinda why I'm glad they gave Shadow Panther a different head. And why I'm glad they gave the alt heads to the other 2 repaints.

Snagged Kickback this wknd. I very much appreciate the added articulation from ye olde G1 figure; but the TFing feels insubstantial on such a size-increased figure. The wingblades snap-in connection is kinda flimsy, too. BUT, he looks *great* with the teeny-tiny NewAge bugs as his minions. I look forward to Bombshell and Shrapnel, and hopefully they do the Deluxe Insecticons as well.

I don't know why they're so sparse, or so much less stocked than voyagers, core class, even leaders are showing up more than deluxe. Kickback and Dragstrip are the most elusive.

I'm definitely worried about wave 2. I have no interest in the Beast Wars figure, have decided I'm gonna pass on Jhiaxus until he's rereleased in orange, and Elita isn't a priority since I have ER, but the rest...

Can't wait to try to figure out how to rotate Menasor's shins so Wildrider & Breakdown are on the front, not to mention I just cleared space for him, and I just grabbed RED Knockout to potentially use his head on Legacy's body.

And I mean, Blitzwing's bot mode is phenomenal...

Is it known Jhiaxus is getting an orange release? The Legacy figure is right out Derek Yaniger's G2 artwork - wanted this for a long time. I'm not sure what the reasoning ever was for that little orange one years back.

Still waiting on Brawn, Windcharger, Gears, and Buzzaw to be announced. Just need these guys to finish off G1 series 1. After that it’s just the Gestalt teams and G1 series 2 for me. Not sure if I’ll head into anything afterwards.

Video review of Tarantulas. He looks fantastic! Seems like a perfect recreation of his animated bot mode and an excellent spider mode. Can’t wait—he was my favorite character from Beast Wars. Loved that original figure back in the day, but I always wished it looked more like the animation model.
