    So I am waiting patiently for generations cybertron megatron, hailstorm, and darkmount to be released. Supposedly they are coming out this month. But I found a guy on ebay who has all of those but hailstorm available to buy. Problem is that they are 29 bucks plus 8 bucks shipping.

    BLAH! Is it worth it to spend the money to get them now, or just wait and hope I can get one in the stores when they decide to show up?

    What do you guys do?

    Faced with a similar situation - I opted to wait.

    Even if waiting is anti-fun :(

    I don't think paying $37 for a toy that'll be all over every Target for only $10 (Deluxes) in about a month or so is a great idea.

    Trust me I was the same way with Animated Rodimus, however the difference between me and you is, those figures will be abundant.

    If you look at BigBadToyStore's wave collection how you can order as a box set

    You will be able to get Megatron, Hailstorm, and Darkmount in Waves 2, and 3 of the box set.

    Drift is only available for Wave 1 so it is imperative to get him before he disappears.

    I say wait. That's a steep price for two figures that were going to be $10 a piece in a couple of weeks.

    Just wait, even WalMart is completely clogged up with Thrusts and Drifts now, it will happen with the next wave as well.

    Buy it now! Or wait.

    Either option is going to get you the same result. You can be high-fived my TF nerds over the internet if you buy it now, so is that worth the extra money?

    Agreed. Overspending = anti-fun the day after. It's like when you wake up with that hooker the next morning and think "my god, what have I done?"

    You are such bad influence. Shame on you! :gen069: 

    Seriously though, it's not gonna kill you if you wait. Hell I'm dying to get my hands on Blurr and Dirge, and they are in a later wave, which probably won't be out not until the end of October or early November. But at least I can save money and have something to look forward to.

    Actually according to EE, Drift will show up back again in Wave 3. It's Thrust that actually everyone should worry about acquiring, because he is not schedule to show up again.

    I'll be honest. I paid $24.95 (total) for a WFC Optimus back in late July because I thought he wouldn't be out for months on end yet.

    I spotted rows of the guy in TRU a couple days later and wanted to kick myself.

    The problem with jumping the gun and buying stuff early is that not only are you way over paying but by getting them early you increase the wait for the next wave making it more likely you will by the next wave early and waste even more money.

    Just wait. With the money you save you can use to towards even MOAR new toys! ;) 

    And you want to talk impatient, ask anyone who currently has the Bruticus upgrades on pre-order.
