    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I got my Justitoys Shockwave today.... and I'm kind of put off from buying any more of their toys in the future. Blaster had some bad QC with the arm and hip joints being floppy. Shockwave is a bit better but the right arm was like cooked wet spaghetti. A problem that can be owner-fixed is still a problem. Aside from loose joints the toy is okay but the stuff made by heerotoysmaker is 50 times better as far as quality goes.

    I was willing to pass on Astrotrain because it's too large(and I can get a vintage G1 version for cheaper!), but was considering Sixshot and the Dinobots 5-pack. I think now I'll just pass instead. Common problems with the Dinobots I found were a habit of missing accessories, transparent parts breaking too easily and Swoop having design problems. It seems the first shipments of Shockwave would break on first transformation due to a stuck joint. Eh well, at least they didn't use the "shampoo bottle" plastic here like they used on Blaster.

    If these 2 figures are an indication of the company's overall line then I'm content not to buy more. I paid $35 for Shockwave and his arm needs to sit for a day or 2 so the acrylic varnish can harden.

    Went in for orientation at Target and found the last Blitzwing AND Springer!!!

    They aren't as tall as Blaster and Grimlock, but as Voyagers, they are a little taller than WFC Optimus Prime.

    I have seen a few reviews. They aren't impressive at all. The weapons are kind of lame and unpainted. And they don't have any articulation in the legs. Playmates must got a hold of the license somehow.

    I picked up some more Iron Man figures. Some of them are ok. Others not. They seem to come in handy.
    Anybody know how many figures total were made?





    I sold off my Neca Predator. Good riddance. I won't buy squat from Neca ever again.

    I found this at Ollie's. Whoever this guy is, he has a bad ass axe.



    Anyone interested in obtaining this figure without the weapons, drop me a PM

    I have gotten some at TJ Maxx for $4. Sweet The rest are coming from Five Below.




    I am trying to stay away from the Concept series. I took back the Hot Zone Iron Man and exchanged him for a better figure. I was at Ollie's this morning, but they had all the same one's that I've already encountered. I need to find some place where they have the Comic series.

    Yeah, they also have a silver drone that I didn't get around to picking up yet. Kind of on the fence about that one. I've got the movie war machine around here somewhere. He's misplaced at the moment.

    I have no problems picking up concept figures if the weapons are any good. But most of them just seem to be repainted weapons from other figures so they're a pass.

    Nice review. That's a wacky-looking monster. Seems like he's always looking up....

    - - - Updated - - -

    I went out to my other Ollie's; no sign of the IM comic series.

    I think I remember seeing them there, but who knows how long ago that was--they've been on clearance for years. However, I did find this...





    Another useless figure with great accessories. Win

    As for recent scores, I got a Justice League Unlimited Star Sapphire:



    And I got in some Amazing Spider-Man in my effort to get up to #400:












    And although I have no intention of going past issue #400 of Amazing Spider-Man, I thought I should own the "last" comic of the series: issue #700



    Plus I got in Avengers Annual #20:

    I'm afraid today's efforts were unfruitful. No luck finding the Iron Man comic series. I suppose I might not be able to find all the "good ones" from the line. Such is the life of a clearance scavenger



    I actually came across voyager Blitzwing and Springer at a Target. But I'm not buying any transformers this month.
