    Got my first chase Pop. I told myself I wouldn't go too hard on the DBZ ones because I have enough Banpresto figures already. Honestly didn't even know it had a chase so I really lucked out haha

    So, looks like pre-orders opened up (at some stores, at least - I don't see one at BBTS, for example) for the new Masterpiece Starscream. $275.

    I put in a no-money-down pre-order at The Chosen Prime just in case, and now I'm going to have a long sit-down with myself and have a conversation about whether I need or even want something like that.

    I did the same, without the thinking part. It makes me wonder if they get theirs from TF Source since they both used the same photos and one fan version.
    Heads-up, @Betsuni , BBTS just opened their pre-order for MP Starscream 2.0, and it's $265 on there (so $10 cheaper than TCP). Granted, BBTS shipping costs $4 and TCP's shipping is free when over $150, so really BBTS comes out $6 cheaper, but... just letting you know!

    (TCP might lower their price for all I know. I think the $275 was early speculation and $265 is based on the officially-given-price-in-yen-converted-to-US-dollars or something like that.)

    The other thing to keep in mind is that BBTS gets their 3P transformers like a month later than everyone else, and that might be true for official Transformers as well, so you have to decide if one month or $6 matters more.

    Oh cool thanks! Yeah they are slow, but they eventually get them in. I never paid attention to TCP when they get theirs in. I'm hoping that Hasbro Pulse puts it up and I'll buy it from them.

    Is Hasbro Pulse preferable to other online stores?

    Eh, they’ll be retail price since it’s directly from Hasbro, as opposed to some other sites like BBTS being a dollar or two more since they’re third party. Hasbro also has free shipping if you break a threshold, maybe $40? I forget.

    The thing I don’t get is it seems like stores and online retailers will often get Hasbro products before my Hasbro Pulse order ships, so that’s a little frustrating. I mainly use Pulse for their exclusives.

    So yeah, overall they’re good, just a bit slow, and have cool exclusives

    The only reason I use them is that I have yet to be screwed by them cancelling a pre-order. They had only one that I knew of that failed which was mini-cassette set that apparently a shipment was lost at sea or destroyed. Other than that they are usually solid and yeah almost always slow to get the items compared to the other sites and stores. I did notice that the last few Masterpieces they did beat BBTS in shipping them out. I just attribute that to they don't want to step on their partners by beating them to the punch.

    Speaking of that, here's their pre-order which is the same price as BBTS.

    Also two new exclusives of the Terrorcons and Siege Soundblaster.

    Yeah, they do seem more reliable than most places.

    That stuff looks cool but I’m good with my PotP Abominus, Siege Soundblaster, and MP07 Starscream

    I am slightly annoyed that it took me a lot of traveling around town to pick up the pieces for Abominus and now BAM there it is in a convenient box set. The Soundblaster is slightly annoying since it looks much better clean and has Laserbeak with him, although I did get my Walmart Soundblaster for way cheaper. Now I'd probably buy it if he came with Buzzsaw (which I don't know why they always leave him out or last).

    I did pre-order Starscream since I never bought the previous two versions of him so I finally can have a Starscream to go with my Megatron. Now if they make Skywarp in this mold I'm doomed since I already have the MP-11SW version, or heaven forbid they make the coneheads with this new mold!

    All of the dolls I want to buy from Danny Choo right now are on discount, because he's clearing out stock for his move to a new office. I'm so pissed off I don't have a job yet so I can buy them all.

    There's also some leaked pics of '86 Grimlock, among others. He's a biggun.

    I love how he comes with Wheelie. Wonder if Wheelie transforms.

    Latest rumor was that he doesn't transform.

    Note that this rumor is from months ago, and everything else about it (studio series '86 leader class Grimlock who comes with Wheelie) was confirmed, so that has a good chance of being right as well.

    A Fan First Friday happened for Transformers today, with a bunch of official reveals: https://news.tfw2005.com/2020/10/16/transformers-studio-series-86-retro-headmasters-official-images-pre-orders-live-422072#more-422072

    Target Exclusive Runabout and Thrust
    Walmart Exclusive Headmaster redecos (Chromedome, Hardhead, Brainstorm and Mindwipe)
    Amazon Exclusive Galactic Odyssey Micromaster Six pack (apparently inspired by MASK vehicles?)

    Studio Series '86 Grimlock (w/ Wheelie), Scourge, Blurr and Kup and the Studio Series Revenge of the Fallen Devastator boxset that's been rumored awhile.

    Grabbed Grimlock, Jazz and the micromaster six-pack. Just couldn't justify grabbing Devastator though. I'm already going to have trouble finding a spot for my upcoming Beast Wars collection.

    Betsuni
  • NobodyNobody Registered User regular
    $50 for Grimlock is spicy, but it looks to be about the right size, so I can’t complain.

    Somewhat tempted on Thrust.

    On one hand I kinda want the Galactic Odyssey set, but it looks like only two of them are nods to MASK.

    Wonder what those Walmart headmasters are? Maybe rereleases of the original G1 figures?

    They're just the Titan Returns versions with better paintjobs. They do have retro G1 packaging though.

    Ah, hmm, kinda neat. I’m probably good with the original TR releases

    I'm a sucker and pre-ordered all of the SS 86 stuff, Thrust and Runabout, plus the six pack. Might cancel my six pack order, but I love the little guys.

    Probably will pass on the headmasters since they are Walmart and I already have the TR line. Will see if that new paint job gets me. Hahahah.

    They look great. Are you painting the eyes also, or are they pre-painted (or decals or something)?
