    Wonder if these guys who are bidding just plain old gave up on him appearing on shelves at Walmart or TRU. I imagine he will, but then again you never know.

    That's going to go higher than that. I was watching one earlier in the week that sold for over $60. Wish I hadn't removed it from watch list.

    The cheapest has been around $30, the highest $60. For a toy that was $16 a week ago.

    Well, the funny part to me is that's is a character that everyone (lots of people anyway) claim to hate. Whatever. I'll find one eventually.

    Titanium distribution is all wonky...that's why I pre-order online as soon as I see them go live :)  Anxiously awaiting Prowl to hit BBTS :)

    I always seem to be too late on that guy.

    Could have pre-ordered at BBTS. Two dollars short on my credit card.

    Hasbro Toy Shop. Sold Out while I was filling out my credit card information.

    Oh well. Guess I'm not meant to have him.

    LOL me too, I got 2 from Hasbro Toy Shop and with the FNFSPR7 code too. One for me (which I modded) and one for my friend (who hasn't picked it up yet) and is in danger of finding its way to eBay :D  (rest easy Savage590, not gonna do it unless you say ok ;)  )

    Oh, BTW, anyone has a War Within Megatron to trade for a Fallen?

    6 inch ti cases usually contain 2 new toys, and 1 toy from a previous wave.


    WW Magnus and Sunstorm are both low demand repaints, and WW Megatron is going into the two pack.

    So there's a fairly good chance G1 Magnus will be shipped in the next wave:

    Apparently it's out in the U.K too. That and it's availability in Sweden could explain why it's a bit HTF in the U.S.

    He'll probably be shipped in the next wave regardless. When we were still getting them at Target the shipments started as four to a case until wave 3. When wave three came around they started doing it like you said: 2 new toys plus 1 toy from the previous wave.

    However, the interesting part is that they started doing the .5 wave deals. Basically, you have wave X with the two new toys and than one of the older ones. And than you'd have wave X.5 with the two new toys and than the other old one. So, both of the figures from the previous wave stayed in distribution, but not at the same level as the two new figures.

    Of course, considering that they haven't been on most stores shelves in forever, it's kind of a moot point.

    I guess I'll keep an eye out for him and if I see him I'll sell him to someone here for a fair price.
