@LandoGriffin - Did your Siege Starscream have the issue with the chest plate not wanting to stay on? The one my son and I got has that issue. I was thinking of going to a hardware store and getting pins to put in, and then I read this article yesterday about a running change in production on that exact issue: https://news.tfw2005.com/2019/03/18...ger-starscream-possible-running-change-385488

So I am definitely going to go get small pins to put in to this figure to keep it together. Is your Starscream staying together or do you also need it fixed?

I haven't opened my Starscream yet.

Yesterday I picked up Siege Chromia. Saw Prowl but left him. Still hunting for Ironhide

I can't really remember the last time I bought a Transformer, but I did pick up the Studio Series Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee movie. I really like his G1-inspired design.

As of 9:30PM on 3/27/19, East Washington Street Target in Indianapolis had 3 cases of Siege Wave 2 Voyagers out (Ironhide, Chromia, Prowl, Sixgun). Walmart right across the street had 5 cases of the same wave out. So the pattern begins again: The overstocking of waves 1 and 2, guaranteed to clog peggs for the rest of the year so we don't see any of waves 3-5 until they hit Five Below in 2 years.

Picked up the WM G1 Warpath tonight. I wasn't aware they were doing him. He's on the shelf next to Bumblebee.

Just got the Ecto-1 exclusive in from Hasbro Pulse yesterday. Came as a surprise, as they never sent me a shipping notice, but glad to have it.

I have FINALLY gotten myself back into the Japanese G1 game!

Sorry... Spoke too soon. Long story, possibly cursed. :ninja:

Seeing how Hoth_My_Fav returned with a "AFA is the best! CAS cannot be trusted!" reply to an old topic that had nothing to do with the latter... I think this might be my last reply before he ruins AFA for me. :hmm:

ITEM #1: "MP-21G" Bumble G-2 ver. (A birthday gift from a family member; purchased from Toy Dojo.) (JG1 - #1 of 5)
ITEM #2: "MP-21R" Bumble Red Body (Purchased from Toy Dojo.) (JG1 - #2 of 5)
ITEM #3: "QT-11" Jazz (Autobot Meister) (Purchased from Toy Dojo's eBay store.) (non-JG1 - #1 of 5)
ITEM #4: "Encore 05" Ironhide (Protection Black ver.) (Purchased from Wheeljack's Lab's eBay store.) (JG1 - #3 of 5)
ITEM #5: "Encore 06" Ratchet (Emergency Green ver.) (Purchased from Wheeljack's Lab's eBay store.) (JG1 - #4 of 5)
ITEM #6: "AM-11" Arcee (with A.R.C) (Re-purchased from andone206's eBay store.) (non-JG1 - #2 of 5)

I have two pending orders that will cap off my spending for the month. But because they are pending, and might also not qualify to be graded by AFA, they will not be mentioned here. Sorry.

Just got Siege Jetfire, and my goodness, it is a gorgeous, huge figure that makes the centerpiece of my setup! Looks perfectly G1 :grin:

All my years of collecting, I never owned a G1 Ramjet. There has always been a missing piece to the set of six G1 Seekers. Well, I got a really good deal on one via Facebook. Had some time today to finally add him to the group! The others are all my original bots from childhood. Had to replace a few things here and there, but they are all complete except for two landing gear.

Well, looks like I'm getting back into some transformers collecting after an almost 10 year hiatus. Upgrading some movie transformers with these amazing looking studio series. Just ordered a couple (Megatron and Crankcase) but going to be hunting for about 10 more.

I finally picked up the Soundwave reissue from Walmart. It was only marked down to $30, but that particular store rarely puts anything good on clearance.
Our local Wal-Mart is similar. They get bugger-all in, and hardly ever reduce the price of what little they DO get.

I have to say I really dig these guys.
I just picked up Hotlink as well. Not a big fan of the price tag, and surely could have done without the little guys. But For him being as hyped up and everyone going nuts over it, it was worth picking up.

Just preordered Walmart exclusive Soundwave and Megatron R.E.D. Figures. Funny that Prime is sold out. I don’t want to get into another line but these figures look great.

I keep checking out those nano vehicles at Target and Walmart. They're pretty neat. They look like they would work with the Micro Machines toys.(y)

I noticed the Transformers RED figures were back up for preorder on Walmart.com. I was able to get Prime, Megatron, and Soundwave. Those seem to be the only 3 they are releasing right now. I got charged right away, but I'm not supposed to get them until Sept. 11. So, maybe it was just a pre-authorization on my card.

Picked up this lonely Blaster this morning...was out looking for other stuff, so it was a nice surprise, wasn't expecting to see it so soon.
