    So I have to vent on the fact that I haven't seen any of these figures at retail yet. Of course, my Walmart sux, but they did occasionally put stuff like this out early, not knowing the difference. In lue of this I decided to just go ahead and preorder them at bbts in case I do not find them. I MUST HAVE THESE FIGURES!!!!!! Anyone else po'ed they haven't found any yet (I'm sure quite a few of you are)?

    These just came out about an hour and a half ago. If I don't find Thrust by about Christmas, then I might shit my pants, but not before then.

    This reminds me of the Time Warner commercial that's playing right now where the guy paints a brush stroke of paint onto a wall and immediately touches it to see if it's dry. LOL

    A month from now, they'll be easily obtained, and you'll be saying that about some other toys.

    Patience.

    still lol @ the frequency of threads like these.

    When Hasbro plans a 7 wave series to run for 7 months, stores are pretty much stocking the first 5 waves within the first two weeks, and then there's always people complaining how they can't find the remaining two waves and everything sucks :p 

    Anyway yeah, expect Generations to be in a store near you pretty soon..if you live the US, at least.

    I've been wanting to rush out to the stores to pick them up myself but I know it takes almost forever for new toy releases to reach anywhere near to where I live. The local Wal-Mart just got in the movie-hybrid Lockdown figure last week so that should tell you something about how horrible new releases are.

    Really not in any sort of panic though because these are wide release toys at several different stores so there isn't that chance of scalpers picking places dry like with the store exclusives. I don't know exactly when but one day there will be all the excitement and joy of walking in a store and going "Holy crap they are here!".

    Since I'm worried the line will get the ax next year I don't mind spreading out my enjoyment of the line for a little while instead of rushing out to get them.

    Even though OWAT stole my thunder, I will repeat.

    It's toys. TOYS. Also, it's toys that aren't suppose to be out until late july/august anyway.

    Geez.
