Maximum Dinobots TPB. Like Anderson, I've been reading through IDW's previous continuity (albeit and a MUCH slower rate). Got to Maximum Dinobots. I've read it. I bought them. I didn't get rid of them. But I scoured my comics collection (which isn't huge) and... nothing. Can't find 'em. So, I ordered the trade from Amazon.

Kingdom core class Starscream. Review in the Kingdom thread.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge droids from Target. I think these are the action figures of the droids you can assemble at the park. I got the purple ones and that was it. Yep, those are Astromech droids alright. I mean, they've been using the same molds for years now, so there's nothing new except for color. Except on the BB units. Those were a new mold from the previous ones.

I went looking for Studio Series Hot Rod and had no luck, but found Studio Series Jazz, which is just a great looking figure. I haven't opened him yet, but I'll leave some thoughts over in the review thread when I do.

I've found Hot Rod a few times. Yesterday I found a total of at least 5 between three different Targets. I can pick one up for you if you want.

I may take you up on that, but I need to check the local Targets first. I've mainly checked the three Wal-Marts close enough to visit on my lunch hour. Haven't tried Target yet. I think it's just been luck of the draw, though two of the Wal-Marts had an almost empty Transformers selection, so maybe they just haven't got the new stock in yet.

Well, let me know. They do seem to sell out pretty quick though. My local Target (the one down the street) has had him at least 3 times that I've been there, so if it's not there now, it would be soon.

Earthrise Dirge and Ramjet. From ebay. Yeah. I mean, they're good, if you have one of the ER Seekers, then there's no surprises here. Would I recommend getting them? No, not at current ebay prices. If Amazon does a restock, then yes, definitely, but otherwise I just can't justify the price. Now you might be asking why I pulled the trigger if that's the case? And I don't even really know how to answer that. I think I just knew that I wanted to get them at some point to complete the six and should probably do it now while I have the money instead of later when the price is just going to keep goin up. In fact, I specifically hadn't bought them because they were so expensive. I don't regret the purchase, but yikes, I just can't recommend spending this much on these guys. You're better off getting the CHUG versions if you want all six in the same scale and asthetic.

My local Target has been terrible lately. Every time I've looked there, most of the shelves in the toy isle have been nearly empty. All they've had for Transformers is a couple Cyberverse figures. My mom needed some help this weekend, so I checked a Target near her house and they were fully stocked. So I got Blackarachnia, Dinobot and Rattrap. I was hoping to find Airazor as well, but alas.

I know the feeling. The Target near my parents is where I got Cyclonus and the one near my mother in law is where I got Huffer, Arcee and Airrazor.
