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.
iacon45: I'll buy a Ratchet if they make one like that.

Blade Raider: I've generally heard good things about those figures. I'm not sure I'll buy any if I see them just due to character selection. Maybe BB.

Optimal Megatron: And while Bumblebee has some shoulder limitations, Prime has crazy articulation.

Optimal Megatron: So, I picked up the Cyberverse Deluxe figures with the build a fig parts. Prime and Bumblebee are here and they're frankly much better figures than the previous Warrior ones. I'd say just a shade under the Generations for complexity.

Blade Raider: Sorry, I got distracted by Kamen Rider livestream and Rider toy news.

Blade Raider: Awesome. Glad you found it.

iacon45: HA! Found the Bot Bot 5 pack! It was pushed up under the bed

iacon45: Wow. I didn't think there were that many without a repaint

iacon45: Sorry had some network issues

Blade Raider: Oh, Hawt Mess has a repaint. Keep forgetting the SDCC set.
Jan 25, 2020 18:23:16 GMT -5
Blade Raider: There's way more than I'm willing to count in wave 3 and 4 without repaints yet, so I'll stop there.

Blade Raider: Just looking at a wave 1 checklist, the following have no repaints or retools: Burgertron, Snippy Snappy, Ms. Take, Sticky Mcgee, S'Up Dawg, Hawt Diggity, Kidd Klobber, Fun Gus, Waddlepop
Jan 25, 2020 18:08:46 GMT -5
Blade Raider: Oh, Burgertron has not been repainted at all.
Jan 25, 2020 18:02:21 GMT -5
Blade Raider: I'd have to go look at this point. A couple each wave, I think.
