    No, they overestimated the number of Whirls in stock and canceled your order. Nothing to see here.

    Unless Tailpipe is canceled, too, but even then it'd just be a wave thing.

    Yeah, it's not discontinued, just over-ordered. I suspect part of the problem is that people can't find him at retail. Can't fault them, since no visible dent seems to be appearing in the HA basics stock around me. It's probably just retailers over-ordering Wave 1 of everything and trying to get rid of it because they ordered too much.

    But I certainly want my Whirl/Mech tech spinny Railgun!

    My thoughts exactly.
    Though boy, what'cha complaining about! That poo brown looks gorgeous! (actually, it's a really nice plastic quality, and the white really helps)

    Yeah, nothing to see here - they just ran out of stock.

    Remember, Hasbro Toy Shop /= Hasbro themselves.
