At Walmart, see attached pics. Didn't buy it, looks too simple to me.

When I first saw images I thought this looked beast, then I saw it today in person and felt underwhelmed. I get the feeling maybe kids could make a better object with found objects, like concrete slabs and metal pipes.

It's been sighted at least a couple of times already. Personally, if I was a kid, I'd be all over this. As a collector who doesn't play all that much with the things he collects, it's not something I plan on getting. If I ever see it on a good enough clearance, I might get it then. Would still make a nice centerpiece to the collection, lol.

I kinda wanted it but then I saw the review on tfw for the rescue bots prime firehouse and I just don't see where the price is justified here. Of course if this is featured prominently in the show as is then I will unfortunately have to buy it : (

I saw a few today at 2 different Wal Marts and while I really want it for my set up, I can't justify the $40+ price tag. i really do want it, but I'll have to wait for a sale or something.

Does anyone have one of these out of the box yet ? I really need to know how tall the tower portion is in exact inches ?

I got my display cabinet today and want to set up for my Tcats , but my tower is coming tomorrow and I need the dimensions to adjust the glass properly.

I'll have to get a good look before I bite, doesn't seem like a whole lot comes in the box. Super into that Tygra, though. Does anyone know if it's supposed to have a lot of ThunderLynx abailities? Haven't seen one in the wild yet.

SORRY but this doesnt seem 40$ worthy, nomatter how big of a TC fan i am, this is still not an intrest to me! Now if it was the lair, then i am so there! Anyhow for the things this playset comes with, it should cost around 25 bucks at least!. Even my jurasic park compound cost it me 35 bucks and that chit came w alot of features! So for those of u who could care less about pricing, let us know wat u think and or wat it comes with other than "open doors" and a light up cat.

The Tower of Omens playset is in my area. Got one for me and my friend at the Citrus Heights, CA Toys R Us which were the last two and the Roseville, CA one has two left. I can't wait to open it when I get home!

Just got my tower, love it!
I originally just bought it for the clear Tygra, but after setting it up it's really a great set. Well worth the $40 price tag.
