    Dang, sorry I'll ping you next time if I see the announcement that he is back up for pre-order.

    Edit: Yeah that figure looks awesome. Wish he transformed as well. Ravage semi transforms which is cool.

    Yeah, I was at work so not on the forums. It sucks that it's so hard to get. How hard is it for Hasbro to meet demand?

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    Also Walmart choosing to not care about toys yet pushes for exclusives...

    Managed to snag the Decepticon Clone pack at Target this weekend, need to break them open.

    I wonder if Hasbro ever thought of expanding the idea with a gatcha gimmick. Say 6 variants each for both Autobots and Decepticons where the robot mode is almost identical but they change to something like aircraft/car/bird/land animal/military vehicle/ship(or unique mode depending on faction).

    Blind pack ‘em and watch collectors go nuts

    So, a mere five years later, and my baby thread is all grown up and hitting 100 pages.
    Anyone want to open up a new thread?

    Has anybody done one yet? I'd be happy to do one if you don't want to.

    Two more smushed boxes from Gamestop. Lucky I planned to take these figures out anyways but, starting to get pretty old. They have decent sales but could care less about shipping. I ordered from Walgreens of all places and they did a better job packing it, with actual bubble wrap!!

    I hope you don't mind @see317 that I went and made a new thread to continue what you continued.

    New thread smell!

    I've been trying to get the Hasbro Star Wars Black series Empire Strikes Back bounty hunters. Some of them get snapped up by scalpers quick, like Boba Fett, so I've been checking pices on and off.

    A while back, they started rereleasing the figures in the Black Series Archive editions. I don't personally care if I get the original black box or the newer bube packaging. But even the re-release of Boba Fett disappeared quick and were on eBay for anywhere from $60 to 200. I fnally found one that was in a price I was somewhat comfortable with and got him! I'm pretty happy. Now I just need IG-88.

    Yeah, how hard it is to find something initially is making me want to just quit

    Like if I'm searching the first few weeks, I should be able to find it

    All this shit selling out instantly online and disappearing from stores the first day to never be stocked again is fucking stupid

    These Target exclusive GI Joes are really getting on my nerves

    This post really confused me for a couple of minutes. I thought you were trying to shutdown all toy talk and I was like, "I still collect toys though!" Then I looked at the timestamps and thread size and realized oh this isn't the newest thread.

    This is the current thread for those who need it:

    While it doesn't seem that any rich were eaten. It definitely feels like a soup course with broth made from rich stock - bouillonaire if you will - was had.
