Once again, thanks for sharing.  Sucks about the bubble adhesive.  I look forward to your views on the the last two figures.

I stepped away from posting for a period of time, but always lurked.  Never been a fan of FaceBook.

I have picked up both the HISS tank and the awe striker - The carded figures are a fun, and in vehicle mode, Megatron and BB are great. The interior of the HISS tank has more detail than the original!  However as far as the robot mode - they are pretty flimsy transformers with lots of hollow gappy parts.

TRU has the classified series on sale - $38.17 - still too much money, but better than the regular $45!
The PP Bat and Viper are also available for shipping.

I wish for fewer exclusives - paying to ship anything out of the US is cost prohibitive.  And TRU prices are insane.

Zarana, Dusty and a CG arrived from Amazon this week.   Wow Zarana I think just moved into my fav figure of this line.
All three had no problem with stuck/stiff joints,  Hasbro might finally have the kinks worked out.

I totally agree, there hasn't been a "deluxe" figure that is worth more than $60.  If they are aiming for this higher price point, I want swappable heads/hands/ and painted accessories.  I also think too many "exclusives" kill a line.

Serpentor arrived yesterday.  Amazing figure - debatable if it was actually worth what I paid to ship it from HasbroPulse.
Love the look and scale of the figure!  Sadly was the first classified figure that had a stuck joint - had to do several attempts with warm water to free up his left elbow.

Noticed today, that the Crimson guard was now showing up for me on for $35.99.  Not in stock, but I was able to place an order for one.

I just got my shipping notification - sadly with exchange and fedex shipping I paid more than what Gamestop is selling them for.
I personally hate exclusives, and chase figures that should be part of the main line.

So far in this line that includes Dr Mindebender, Serpentor, Walmart Gung-Ho, Amazon Roadblock, and all of the Target figs.
