But this was all that greeted me:
Generations Springer, Cliffjumper, and Swerve.
Where was wheelie?!?
There were a good three or four of him the last time I was there. From what I'd seen, he looked like a re-coloured Jazz with a new Wheelie head. He was way too big for my own taste, so I passed.
But this time, he was missing! Obviously people like him much better than I do. So sorry, 3B! I'll continue to hunt one down for ya!
Also, these had come out the week before:
Fall of Cybertron, Optimus Prime and Jazz. (And Shockwave who, like Wheelie, was missing. I guess people love him too. ;])
I had previously wanted to get whatever new Optimus Primes that Hasbro came out with. But when the previous War for Cybertron Deluxe Prime was released, I was disappointed with the pinkish red plastic and his small size of compared to others (hint, hint Bumblebee...Not that I dislike the 'Bee or anything. I just can't stand that Optimus would even be near the same size as 'Bee or the other way around.)
This Prime, while cast in a good red plastic, still looked small. He also looks like he's had one too many burgers. Check out that paunch! Hah!
But the real treat was over at the Marvel pegs, Lookie here what I found!
It's a "Deluxe figure" Cosmic Chariot Invasion Chitauri!
I was gonna snag at least two of the 4 hanging on the pegs except
1) It was priced at S$34.90 (US$29. Yep.)
2) The poor guy has got no elbow and knee articulation!
The sculpt looks fantastic for both the chariot and the figure itself. Heck, the sled looks so cool it even has pegs for the feet. (And here I'm thinking about the many fight scenes in The Avengers movie.) But I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a poorly articulated figure. I also knew there was a singles packed figure in Wave 4 of The Avengers 3.75 inch line so I decided to be patient. That Cosmic Chariot, though. man, it almost got me...
Well, that's all from me for now. Sorry for the time between posts. I do have a couple of good reviews on the way and I promise they'll be up soon. so I guess for now...Watch this space! ;P
