GO GET EM!!
Transformers Generations Deluxe Action Figure - Shockwave - Hasbro - Toys "R" Us
It limited me to 2 figs
I wanted one MOSC, one bot, one alt...
Eh, it's alright. I still got an order in for 2
Goddamn, seriously?! 2 minutes! He's the only one I need. Grrrr...
Yeah, no kidding! I've been trying to get him for a while. Almost bit the bullet and purchased one for 30ish on eBay... ALMOST!
Might I suggest, for those that are having trouble finding him, just take the DPCI to Target and have them pull it out of the back?
Worked great for me in getting mine. All Targets should have at least one case of FOC figures in the back for the upcoming reset.
Did target end up bumping the price to TRU level? (14.99)
YES! I DON'T FEEL CHEATED BUYING FROM TRU ANYMORE!!!
**EDIT** NOW I FEEL CHEATED BUYING FROM ALL RETAIL!!!
Wow.. I feel like I should've bought the last Shockwave at my last TRU visit..DAMN YOU GENERATIONS WARPATH!!
Decided to go with warpath over shockwave? If in the same wave, I would probably agree with you, but since shockwave is a tad bit more scarce right now, idk. Warpath is a sick mold though, yet I understand the frustration.
I had a few runs to TRU where
A. FOC optimus / jazz were around
C. none, but had new TMNT goodies!
long story short, I got sick of checking in. Here's to hoping it'll show up again soon!
I wouldn't worry too much. This wave should be hitting shelves even better next week. All the retailers will be doing their resets this weekend. should be a bit easier to find then. I was surprised when TRU.com even posted them online the first time, and the stores barely had received any.
I'm kinda unfamiliar with the typical reset schedules. When are the major ones? August is one of them I assume?
Jesus this thing is actually selling out that fast? I mean I love Shockwave but the figure seems so..underwhelming to be so hard to find.
Hey, don't talk smack about Warpath!
It may be due to the fact that good Deluxe figures have been far and few between lately.
In any case, Shocky lives up to the hype IMO.
Pretty much, middle to the end of August is when most retailers reset their aisles for the fall.
TRU has been getting stuff early the last few years, but nothing will be hard to get in 2-3 weeks when Walmart and them get them out in force.
I find all the fuss in this thread to be a bit unnecessary
Yea, I remember two years ago when the first WfC figures came out, everyone was scrambling to get their hands on WfC Optimus (and even BB, but more so Optimus). TRU got the figures first and they were hard to find for the first month or two. Then, after other stores got them, the hype died down and they eventually started shelf warming...
