    Why bother when Hasbro Toy Shop will probably sell it for the original price.

    Do they think that they are the only store who will carry Soundwave? Or are they just high.

    can't stand this shit.

    these fuckers will stand in line, buying up massive amounts of soundwaves (and other SDCC exclusives in the past), which will end up depriving lots of other people at SDCC the chance to own even one.

    why anyone would give them any business after seeing this is beyond my understanding.

    EDIT (accidentally put BBTS in here, sorry BBTS!)

    Valkysas may have got the name wrong, but his comments are dead on for Brian's Toys.

    They are the kind of scalping scum that I can tell does so much damage to toy aisle around my area, esp. TRU.

    Recent example: the new DCUC two-packs were recently released, Superman vs. Brainiac and Batman vs. Clayface.

    There were six Batman vs. Clayface packs left, and the only Superman vs. Brainiac that was there disappeared quickly.

    I know for a fact that there's a few punk ass workers there who scalp, and I also know that at that TRU, Superman toys are usually peg-warmers.

    Most kids don't even know who Brainiac is, and could give a shit less for Superman.

    But collectors, ah...they are after that two-pack. We've been waiting for it since the pics were released.

    I bet that two-pack went for over forty on eBay...and it's a twenty-buck toy.

    I'd love to get my hands on a scalper or two, and certainly on those punks at Brian's Toys.

    And yeah, I am in a bad mood.

    yeah, meant to put brian's toys. not BBTS. woops.

    I guess I put BBTS in there since I was jazz-shopping on BBTS at the time.

    any store that fills their inventory from other stores shouldnt be bothered with. I remember them jacking the price up on movie 1 concept camario bumblebee too (because I searched all over the place for the damn thing), and I'm pretty sure I saw them doing the same for other exclusives in the past.

    even if I'm misinformed about their past (which is possible, since I rarely visit the site unless I'm wandering around trying to find something particular), there's no arguing that they arent scalpers right now.
