    so i have had united frenzy rumble on pre order from bbts since oh end of feburuary bening of march (cant remember)

    and while still waiting on it i found one for a comparible price so i picked it up, and thought if it shows up i will just sell it off.

    but now im beginning to think i should just cancel it and pick up exgraver or one of the FP insecticons?

    poll for advice let me know your opinions

    If you have them, you have them. Go for something else that you don't have.

    this just in-studies show that nine out of every ten people believe that when 10 people are asked a question, one will always disagree withthe rest


    in all seriousness though, I gave up ages ago. PEs Rumble and Frenzy are pretty cool though, might want to look into it.

    I would say cancel it. Atleast for me it wouldn't be worth the time and energy to hauk it for a few bucks on ebay. From the early sounds of it, RK is restocking some of the United figures in July, so we may see a full-on second run of them which would drive the price to more stable levels for atleast a little while.

    What I would do is try to link up with a boardie who needs it before you cancel, set up a cancelation time so someone in the community can shatch it up as soon as BBTS puts your cancelled pre-order back on the market.

    That being said, I havent checked ebay lately to see if these things are going any crazier than before.

    If you already have one, then cancel your preorder - those things are in short supply and on the chance BBTS gets a few more in to fill preorders, that means someone else who does not have them can get a set. It gives another fan a shot at owning them.

    As for what you could buy - tough call. You could go for one of the Insecticons, but it's a set that you'd probably want all three of. Exgraver as well you're going to want all six to get the most out of him. That's your call though.

    Yeah, there is a second run of them in the offing.

    Aside from which, in the longer run Hasbro probably will get to them, deflating the aftermarket demand.

    On top of which.....they're not actually very good toys.

    As I typed my response earlier I was thinking the same thing. I am happy to have them in my collection, and they were fun to mess around with, but they just arn't the greatest display pieces. Mine had pretty loose hips and the figures are kibble-rific. I think it also hurt that I got PE F/R within a day or two of receiving these, and IMO those blow these two out of the water.

    Fun toys to dink around with, but far from the best of the line.

    There is?

    I still have my Preorder from Januaray in with them and really have not looked for another set yet, was hoping BBTS would not fail me since they never have.

    Rumble and Frenzy are too hard not to pass up. Someone got lucky by picking up the OP's preorder.
