DC Collectibles 9-inch PVC Statues

Although the Batgirl costume on that figure seems a lot more...snug than it is in the comics, I'll still probably get it.

In-hand images of PotP wave 2 Voyagers Hun-Gurr and Elita-1.

These are the first looks at their combiner torso modes.

Elita-1 looks pretty cool, even if she is a jet now for some reason.

She's a heavy retool of Starscream from wave 1. Though I'm not sure how she can fly with those holes in her wings.

And believe it or not, Hun-Gurr shares engineering with Combiner Wars Silverbolt/Cyclonus.

I'm a heavy retool AND a kitbash!

Maybe someday I'll have an evil Decepticon repaint.

Hotaru changes her colors to purple skin and silver hair with red eyes.

Strange, I don't feel anymore inclined to dominate the universe than I did before...I just feel kind of...itchy?

Shifts back to normal.

Ahh, so much better.

That is some nice stuff. Will definitely be picking up Moonracer, Novastar, and Elita-One. And I'm glad they did a new Tailgate so I don't have to drop $20 on him on Amazon.

Predaking looks amazing but something tells me he's gonna be out of my price range.

Another 3rd party Tarn enters the battle!

Ryokuro bites a knuckle.

Damn, that's fine.

It's pretty, but for $370 I would want him to transform.

Fantasy Flight Games announced last week that the Android: Netrunner Living Card Game series will be coming to an end on October 22nd. They've published the LCG since 2012 after licensing the property from Wizards of the Coast. But that license is coming to an end, and so too is (their version of) the game.

Interestingly enough, especially given the upcoming release of the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, WotC's original version of Netrunner was set in the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG universe. WotC has announced no plans to reboot the card game, but given the amount of hype around 2077, they might wanna think about it.

Power of the Primes Waves 2 & 3 Now at Hasbro Toy Shop

I really want Cindersaur, because I believe I still have the original one that made sparks knocking around in my collection somewhere, so it'd be neat to get the update. (Although now I see its a repaint of Dinobot Slash, so...ehhhh...)

I also kinda want Rodimus Unicronus, but I already have the Rodimus Prime figure and don't know if I can really justify it to myself...

Cindersaur does have a new head mold though.

Prototype images of Tarn from Flame Toys

This one is officially licensed, but will not transform. Their previous figure, Drift, was $300, so I'm assuming Tarn will probably be the same if not more.

As much as I want a Tarn figure...it's too rich for my blood. Maybe someday Hasbro will do one that's more reasonably-priced.

PotP wave 3 have been spotted in the US. I saw a story saying they were found in Ohio, but other people were commenting that they had also found them in their local stores. I haven't gone hunting for them around my local area yet.

The Legends in the wave are Outback and Cindersaur. The Deluxes in the wave are the remaining Terrorcons: Blot, Sinnertwin, and Cutthroat. The solo Voyager is Inferno, a repaint of Hotspot. The Leader toy is Optimus Primal.

Personally, I'm most excited for the Terrorcons, to finish my Abominus combiner.
