Iíve seen people online saying their Kingdom Huffer doesnít come with his gun. Has this been the case for anyone? Or is it simply that people arenít finding that the accessories are hidden in the base of the packaging?

Like I thought Paleotrex was missing his tail, and then I checked the inner packaging throughly and it was hidden inside.

You'll have to let me know how it is.

I got the RED Arcee yesterday, and it's the first RED I've bought so I didn't know what to expect, but I find it super disappointing. The plastic is soft everywhere, kind of rubbery, and all the joints are either too tight (rotating ones) or too loose (everything else). Despite being designed as an action figure, this toy is harder to pose than her transforming toys. Paint apps on the figure herself are OK, but all the accessory bits are just awful lightgray rubberplastic.

The transforming toys are way better, kibble included.

This kinda reminds me of a knockoff Revoltech, and I don't even really like the feel of real Revoltechs. Definitely skipping the rest of these.

I need to vent some frustration. I've broken my arm in two places, I don't have any resistance or grip strength. So all of a sudden I can't mess around with plastic robits. I have desk bots that I can't fiddle with and a bunch of stuff on order that isn't worth getting out of the box.

Any tips for a (hopefully temporarily) one armed transformers collector?

Can't help with the Transformers, but I enjoy quite a few of the new Bakugan, and the small (non-Deka) ones can definitely be operated one-handed, though some will be challenging. They're fun to mess with at the desk. A lot of the designs are nonsense, but there's usually 2-3 neat ones per shipping wave. The current stand-out one is Arcleon, a manticore who turns into a cube.

I got this title for free due to my proximity to an idiot who wanted to save $5 on an avatar by having someone else spend $9.95 instead.


So thereís a leaked list of the upcoming figures for Kingdom and they just basically gave up on more Beast Wars figures. Tigertron is it. No Inferno? Like, the Beast one, not the stupid fire truck that showed up in the Beast Wars line and gave my hopes up?? No Scorpinok or Terrasaur? Fine, fine, I guess everyone was clamoring for... Shattered Glass Goldbug....????

I'm kinda miffed at Transformers right now since it seems that all the creativity is in the bumblebee cyberverse adventure line (or whatever it's called), but all the budget and engineering is in the nostalgia line. Not that the nostalgia line should be crappy or anything, but why can't the line that's actually innovating get some budget and make some actual cool toys? I mean, among other neat things they've had recently, that were badly executed, we have:
- Iaconus
- Thunderhowl
- HammerByte
- WildWheel
- Meteorfire
- a neat new Shockwave design
- a new Grimlock design that's pretty cool
- whatever was going on with "Ocean Storm" as a spark armor partsformer, that could have been a proper robot
- Clobber
- Megatron-X

I dunno. I was all about Titans Return and subsequent lines since I love headmasters and the engineering was so good, but Earthrise and Kingdom don't do anything for me. I want good toys of new characters and/or new altmodes.

Terrosaur is happening in something called "Kingdom Golden". The Shattered Glass toys are cheap redecoes (easier to make than new molds) that will be some kind of exclusive.

Plus, whatever comes after Kingdom is widely suspected to be a Thrilling 30-style grab bag, and that will certainly have some more Beast Warriors.

I sold my Unicron for a little over double what I paid and the buyer thanked me for the fair pricing.

So I probably should have preordered 10 of them.

It's up on BBTS for $1250 so that does seem fair according to the current market value.

But selling Unicron... you're a monster!

It showed up right as I was in a dire financial situation or I absolutely would have.

At least I was able to get in on a bunch of the sentinels, I guess. Maybe I can haggle for a unicron sentinel trade down eventually.
