    man, I can't wait until this retarded "BUY EVERY ONE OF EVERYTHING" thing ends. of course, this could be a permanent thing now, with Tfs being more popular than they have ever been in the last two decades...

    remember when you could walk into a store and find the figures you wanted? you know, 2 months ago? those were the days.

    Wow. Someone definitely has some insider connections.

    With that said, I have patience and hopefully await the return of the restock come the fall season...

    I don't see the connection between somebody buying 18 of a single figure and what you're saying.

    There is a difference between someone wanting a figure and an asshole buying all of them at once!!!

    You don't? you didnt notice that he has two hasbro cases in the picture there? meaning he bought them by the case, which means they were taken right from the stock room?

    That target is now drained. thats all they were getting. look at robovision prime. stores got one shipment, and that was it. same deal here. no one will ever see the G1 style jazz at the store he hit.

    No, I didn't. I still don't see a problem with bringing someone a figure from the stockroom, unless it's before the street date. I do see a problem with bringing them an entire case of the figures, though.

    I can feel, your pain, man, scalpers rule my area, too :( 

    I actually met him (or one of them) at TRU. bought ALL the new deluxes, AND had an employee pull him a case. He bought all of those as well.

    Luckily, I got Arcee and 08 BB from a board member. I'm tired of going all the time and there is nothing anywhere /rant

    yes, a figure is fine. two cases of figures, that's a "no"

    and technically, this is before the release date as well. some stores have them out now, but most are waiting.

    I really hope mine holds them. I need just ONE, kthx

    Edit: DM, you have the DCPI? I wonder if I called if they'd hold one, provided, of course they didn't give them to a scalper already.

    Just in case, rip one of those "we allow customers to purchase only one of each collectable toy, and cannot retrieve specific items from stock, in order to give all our shoppers a chance" signs off the shelf (if your store has them), demand to see the manager, and shove it in their goddamn face.

    You see the first part of that policy I have no problem with and encourage "we allow customers to purchase only one of each collectable toy",

    It's the second half I find to be complete and total bullshit "and cannot retrieve specific items from stock"

    I can see if someone wants them to get ONE from the back because all that's on the shelf is say Swindle but enforce the first half. Let people request something that is in stock but not on the shelf, but limit them to one.

    and then there's the stores that completely ignore the whole policy, and will give someone their entire stock of an item right from the back before the case is even opened.

    When I was in charge of toys at Tower Records, I never put more than one of the same figure out on the shelf. Anyone asked if I had more in back, I lied. Working 5 days in a row makes it easy to ensure the same person isn't coming in for the same item again.

    Yet another thing Tower stole from me, when they went bankrupt: the power to stop scalpers. :( 

    These people should be dealt with in a harsh, extreme, ridiculous manner.

    And, others get angry at me when I question another board member buying multiples of the same figure... Buying 12 for yourself, because you're OCD is worse than scalping. At least the scalpers are allowing others a chance at owning it...
