Been seeing pics of these new Dino-Rider esque Primal Clash figures and found some of the smaller carded figures myself (first pic is not mine but the second one is). They actually look pretty good but didn't get to price the ones I had found. I do like the Mammoth from the larger box sets. That head armor easily reminds me of the Rulon Brain Box from the Dino Riders line.
So as Rampage replaced Kong: Skull Island, these guys replace Rampage. I like it, Lanard makes good toys at affordable price points. It's nice that these are seeing a release in the States, they've been available in Europe for some time. I like the retro 80's/90's vibe. I love that Wal-Mart is continuing it's relationship with Lanard just as Target has partnered with Chap Mei after the demise of TRU. Good to have something on toy shelves that not over-priced or poorly distributed Hasbro product.
Optimal Megatron: I'd consider buying that. I mean, visually, it's cool. It's just....does it need to be a small child?

iacon45: Wonder if Haslab Unicron fails, if they might try to a more scaled down release.

iacon45: I'm about to give up on the rainmaker set. Can't afford it now if it was available though.

iacon45: I was about to give up on Siege Micromasters but decided to pick up the Off Road team pack since they were a favorite back in the day. Weapon mode aside, these two restored my faith a bit. Both feel solid and don't have random parts popping off.

iacon45: Speaking of the Skywarp set, I need to take out the three Battlemasters before I toss the box.

iacon45: At least it's not SS Shatter bad.

Optimal Megatron: And got my Skywarp. Mine's chest is staying on pretty well, so I guess it's a toss-up

iacon45: Just got a processing soon email on Hightower from BBTS. Glad I made that back up pre-order a few months ago.
