Amazonicron just got delivered.  Not quite sure why I ordered it since i have x2 Armada and x1 Energon version, but it's a close to a G1 head/paint scheme I'm going to get without getting the Dominator version from Tak/Tomy. 

$60 with free shipping and no tax might have helped though  :)

I just saw this info from Hasbro about a new promo they have going on - and I have a question about it.  here is the promo:  http://hasbro.promo.eprize.com/winaride/

Now my question is about the $20 gift pack thingy.  It says you have to purchase Transformers: Darkside of the Moon toys to enter.  I am curious if Kreon toys count towards this or not.

Does anyone have a number for where I can contact Hasbro and ask specifically?  Thanks in advance.

Hasbro announced another NYCC exclusive yesterday, a Bumblebee/ARCEE Human Alliance style pack.  Bee is sporting a NYC Taxi deco and the figures are anime style.

*shrugs*  Why must people call him "bee" ? 

Oh yeah - it's Shia's fault and those stupid movies.

Awesome Hot Rod display.  :)

Went to TJ Maxx here locally, and they've restocked some Reveal the Shield toys. The final wave of Deluxes (Wreck-Gar, Perceptor, Prime, and BB) and the Legends (I only found Prowl and Trailbreaker). Still no Scouts, so Windcharger still eludes me.

Okay, so being a TF, Lego, and Kubrick fan I'm having a hard time ignoring the minifigs that come with the KRE-O sets.  Amazon has several sets on sale right now, so I snagged Jazz, Mirage, Prowl, and Starscream.  $32 with no tax and no shipping.

Too bad it wasn't like a sealed case of vintage Star Wars or something.  But that is cool.

I'd tread very lightly...if I had that much cash to blow at one time, actually for anybody in the market to buy sealed "G1" toys. 

I smell ko's...

Funny that someone offered him $2,000 for 4 of them and he still turned them down.  Or maybe that was a plant...

Universal Studios Hollywood has a promo trailer up for the new Transformers the Ride opening in May here in California. The ride is already open in the Singapore.  It looks pretty much like the Amazing Spiderman ride in Florida.

Might be a way to move product since KO Toys got shut down.

I was checking out Target yesterday to see what was on sale and found some of the Special Value Offer Deluxe sets marked down to $4.98.  These were the sets that Target had a couple weeks back with two DotM Deluxe sets taped together for the price of one. 

I picked up a set that had Sideswipe and Laserbeak.  I think all the other sets they had had Bumblebee in them as one of the two.  Not a great selection but for basically $2.50 each it was a good deal.
