I'm just wondering something.
How many of you who read this here utterly pointless blog belong to the Transformers Collectors Club?
Now if so, I'm curious if any of you care about the yearly membership exclusive
This year's Breakaway is just around the corner and I find it funny that I really haven't talked to anybody who belongs to the club who gives a shit about this, the other previously released 2, or the future 2 at all.
I actually enjoy when they start shipping because I love to see how quickly it takes for a certain someone who frequents here to have it up on ebay. I think last year's was up on ebay in 5 hours from being delivered!
Now me? I've never opened them and really hated the Energon combiners for the most part. The reuse of 2 molds per combiner just didn't do it for me and the so-called hands and feet made out of the energon weapon things just made them all look kind of shitastic to me.
However, with that said, I'll be extremely happy if the center main figure is a repaint of Barricade, the Bruticus Maximus.
He's the only one I really love and his alt mode is great. Steamhammer blows and while I don't mind Storm Jet, his form as a combiner has much too weak a point of contact. My Superion Maximus just never stays together at the waist. It is just a poor design.
Oh well. What can ya do. Barricade will definitely be worth the $40 membership to me.
So. Do any of you give a shit anymore about this figure?
C'mon. I know deep down in the deepest depths of your geekage one of you must.
