Oh yeah, I got the full Cerebros overhaul, too. Honestly third party upgrade/add-on stuff is absurdly good now. DNA could do fillers for the Ark in their sleep.

I sometimes regret not getting the DNA kits for my Metroplex and Fort Max. Their Predaking kit makes that combined mode 100% better.

Drove 20 minutes to get my 5g chip and the Walmart had Netflix Cheetor!

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.
My Huffer showed up today, complete with gun and weird shield thing. They are tucked under the inner cardboard sleeve so they could be missed, but if it's a case of people getting the shield but not the gun then that's a Hasbro error, because they're right next to each other so there's no way you could find one and miss the other.

Also the last three collector's cards I've gotten with Kingdom figures have all been the Ark, I think Hasbro's only shipping those now to drum up interest.

Was able to pick up the netflix Soundwave at walmart today, I had written it off since I'd only seen it offered by scalpers.

Where do you guys go for blaster effects? I looked on some of the 3d printing websites but didn't really see anything great. I know some came with some of the smaller bots but I'm hoping to find some loose or in bulk.

The auto-transforming OP is a neat concept. However, a transformer that you don't actually transform kind of misses the point.

There's a pack that just went up on Pulse for members, it's a lava colored Stegosaurus fossilizer with 19 blast effects for $30 USD. So that's an option.

...

Just saw the Transformers livestream.

Tracks looks cool, as does Scorponok.

The pterodactyl fossilizer looks cool (and has hands, most importantly) and turns into a ninja.

Rhinox is a chunky boi, as is good.

Rodimus Prime and Galvatron look amazing. Lots of storage space on Rodimus.

The Ark's knee gaps don't look as bad as the pictures would indicate, the designer holding them either transformed it differently or it just looks different in hand.

Yep, pics of both modes are in TFW's gallery. His feet stick up weirdly in cassette player mode. Optimus Prime sure is getting outnumbered in the core class, I hope he gets some Autobot reinforcements.

The blast effect Triceratops is apparently only available to Premium members, so gently caress that. Guess I'll pay aftermarket prices for it, I refuse to pay money just to shop at a website.

Also what the hell are they expecting here?


Edit: Oh never mind, I guess all the new stuff is just only available to Premium right now.

Edit2: And the shipping turned free as soon as I went to checkout.

Pulse members always get free shipping, so there's that. If one makes enough smaller staggered purchases it will pay for itself.

Looks like I'll need Tracks, Rhinox, Galvatron, Rodimus, Skorponok and maybe the Ark. Nice that they made this easy enough. Also I picked up Huffer and Airrazor today. So I guess I should ship my TCP stash to get Dinobot here.

You don't, they'll be up for everyone later today.

I make enough purchases on Pulse that I would easily spend $50 on shipping in a year, so I went ahead and subscribed, though. Cheaper in the long run and I already got to preorder everything except the Ark, which is already sold out. I doubt that will be a hard one to get elsewhere, of course.

Yeah, shipping is like $11 per order without Pulse so as long as you make 5 orders it pays for itself. That and being able to slap down preorders before it goes ďpubliclyĒ live, certain exclusives, etc, I feel itís worth it.
