    Anyone know?? Just trying to decide if i should pre-order or wait for a review to see if the tweaks are good as i have never gotten a WST yet. Could i miss out or is there more than enough??

    Well, take whatever number TFSource says they're getting, then subtract at least 20 from that number, and you've got the number that you (may) have a legitimate shot at before the price skyrockets. :p

    Scalping has become so efficient that the time between concept and the overpriced markup is now shorter than the amount of time it takes to make a post on TFW. XD

    Is WST Astrotrain more limited than WST Shockwave and Blaster? Those have been out for a while but still available to buy. If they are available in the same numbers then I can't imagine why Astrotrain can be that much more popular to be sold out quickly.

    well the one on preorder is supposedly the white and black edition so i guess a regular edition will come out later on or with the w&b edition.

    lol at the puns. not that i'm making fun of him but jokes are funny.

    Um, well the blaster and shockwaves aren't limited. those were a 'mass' release. so those can be found.

    that being said, the grey shockwave and blue blaster ARE limited and i believe it was through robot kingdom. i did preorder and end up buying those. nice figs. i think you can still get them, at about the same price.

    robotkingdom.com -- Online Toys Company

    yep still available.

    odds are that they will be available....but do you want to gamble that? i love WST and i preordered mine. plus it's a new mold and no new pics so i'm sure a bunch of folks will jump on it.

    look at the dinobots, the dark, holiday stuffer ones are rare now. but yeah you're call.
