What kind of world do we live in where Gears is released after Swerve? That just goes to show how things can often change in the world. What's next, a release of Ultra Magnus before Optimus Prime?
Digression: I don't know why I don't really like mini-cons. I like the Nebulons that come with Targetmasters, Headmasters, and Powermasters. Mini-cons have three modes, making them triple changers, which should be a good thing. I like triple changers. Perhaps it's a generational thing. I was turned off with Armada and the seeming Pokemon nature of it all. It's still a huge stigma with me. As such, Total Eclipse of the Heart has been tossed to the side. Good riddance.
Guess what? This is the last new figure of the year! It's nothing but Masterpiece and vintage for the rest of the year! Well, unless Brainstorm shows up on my doorstep between now and December 31st.
