Renegades set is sold out, but both have better pics now.

Amazon had an exclusive Transformers Unicron last year and its price NEVER changed - quantities sure did though.  That thing was sold out quite a bit.

Nice pictures; hi res enough to read the file cards.  Not too keen on Roadblock being a ninja, but whatever, I guess.

I went ahead and dropped the cash on the Renegades pack but passed on the Retaliation set.  It looks like the Roadblock figure has the same molded-on accessory attachement in his right hand, SE and SS aren't really different enough from the carded releases to be must-haves and I'm not going to spend $40 for the black Cobra Commander figure even though I think it looks really good.

Anyone here know what is up with the ball jointed hips on the ninjas in the Renegades pack?

$18.38 Skystrikers in my neck of the woods today (Target of course)  12" figs were $20ish - no 4" figs though but I'd imagine they're on clearance too.   :)

$25 Skystrikers here. Grabbed a third one to repaint if a Night Boomer is never announced. Figures were under $8 (Arctic Destro and Renegades CC) and 12"ers were under $20, but seemed to disappear faster than Skystrikers.

Target is being a freak on clearances right now - I've only seen orange tags at one store.  Odd since they normally follow each other.

I found clearances yesterday.  They sold through their 12" basic figures a while ago but they have two paratroopers for $21, 3.75" figures were $7-something and the Skystriker was $25.

Usually Target stores are more in synch, but they're all going to get to this clearance eventually.  I'd buy another Skystriker at 50% off but at $25 it's still more than I paid for my first one so I have a hard time paying it.  I'll be keeping an eye on the store though.

In other news, my Amazon Renegades 4-pack came.  I love the Duke figure in the set and even though it's a little bit different, don't know why I passed on the single carded version.  He's so basic he makes a great base to do any number of things with.  I just wish he had holsters for all the pistols he comes with.

I'm not as happy with the other three figures.  They all look good but they feel very rubbery and I don't like that.  It's hard to get them to stand in some poses and I know that without a stand (maybe even with one) they won't be upright for very long.  Plus the peg holes in the feet of the two ninjas is so shallow neither actually seems to work with the included stands.  I also don't like the new ankle joint.  The hip joint is actually pretty good for the most part, except on Snake Eyes, one is frozen and I haven't been able to get it loose yet.

Over all, for the price, I'm not sure it was worth it.

Sigh....At least I had a week off since I got my Storm Shadow.  Back to wabbit hunting.

If that price is accurate, I'll buy every one I see and help all of us out. 

I'll also double somebody else's money if they can find that duke or shipwreck before I do.
