    You know who you are and what you pulled is crap. this guy goes and buys five bumblebees and when approached in line and asked if he can spare one says no there for my kid.(cuz his kid needs five of em) will little coop goes without now. at least there is a good chance of finding another one later on. but why do people act like that. it makes me sick.

    Scalpers suck.

    But with the price of gas, I find that ordering online becomes more and more viable.

    His kid may also be the Galactus of action figures. Destroyer of Toys, maybe.

    That sucks royally, after the issues with the movie line Animated scalpers were/are to be expected. Really hoping it isn't a problem for me, at least not until after I get Grimlock >_>

    you know if you really thing he's an Ebay scalper you should look at Ebay , and see what Transformer stuff is being sold within a certain distance of you..... if you see a bunch of Bumblebees then it may be him.........

    Ebay:
    regardless though, the prices these scalpers are putting up anyways are stupid. i have been watching some go by and they relist them again and again. if you can wait just dont buy from them, ppl got to remember that so far walmart, some targets and tru are selling them. the street date is still the 22nd jsut wait till then and get them.

    i know everybody wants them now but its the same senario last year with ealry movie figures.

    Not good.

    Come on people. It's a freakin' toy. A TOY. And you start talking about burning down the guy's house?

    Just because we collect toys doesn't mean we're not allowed to grow up.
