Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

Welcome to the next shelfwarmer everyone. This set is just going to go the way of the Masters of Metaliko set. I really don't understand what Hasbro's deal is, what's with the price inflation? $50 for this? Don't get me wrong, I really want this set, but $50 is very steap and these will only sit gathering dust and waiting for a sale to clear them out. It's sad really. I don't really know what the boys at Hasbro were thinking.

I think the extra money is used to stuff Bay's mattress.

Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

I would guess that TRU sets this price, not Hasbro? Just a guess.

Does Hasbro set the prices? I was under the impression that TRU is gouging here and not Hasbro. Either way, I see this sitting around for a while.

that's the only way I'll get the figure, I think that the mixmaster is ass, even in G1 colours. If they don't sell Hoist off as a deluxe single i'll not be getting him.

Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

Im sure it's a good deal for some. But to me....majority of there ROTF 2-packs & 3-packs figs are quite disappointing. I usually just want 1 of the figs in the pack. But this new pack does look a bit more promising.

Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

I would be all over this for $39.99. Mixmaster is cool, but I would totally have to do a head swap with someone. If it goes on sale I would buy it.

I think Hoist was a poor choice to package with this guy, they should have put a green/purple Rampage instead and sold Hoist on his own because I think he would have been pretty popular with both fans and kids.

Re: Toys R' Us Back Road Brawl Set Sighted in Canadian Retail

I really don't think I'll be picking this set up. Don't get me wrong, they both look good and Mixmaster's new head sculpt is nice if a little on the cute side.
... You know, I think that Mixmaster mold with that head sculpt would be pretty cool if he were coloured as a Junkion. The alt-mode looks kinda similar to a garbage truck, so why not make him an ROTF Wreck-Garr?
