    How long will the City Commander set be around? I had him preordered when they first had it up on BBTS but I had to cancel it due to my dad's cancer and me taking over the bills while I'm staying with him. I'm supposed to hear back from Burger King about my application but I know even if I got the job next week I still wouldn't get my first paycheck until after September was over and his preorder was more than likely sold out.

    I'm not wanting to pay the rip off prices that it'd go for on eBay. I'm really wanting this piece to add to my collection to make Magnus look different from Prime but at the moment I can't afford it. I'm hoping he'll be mass produced and sale for a long time but I'm pretty sure he'll be gone as soon as he hits the shelf. I'm trying to sale off my unwanted figures so I can get enough scratch to get him but it doesn't seem like I have any buyers, had one offer and he never replied to my PMs or sent the money to my Paypal. Anyone have have any ideas?

    He ain't coming to stores. They start shipping later this month, but if you're gonna get it, get it while the gettings good. Otherwise, you're looking at some hefty inflation on the cost.

    All we know is that it's slated for release this month as a few have already been received and reviewed.

    So it's pretty safe to say that within the next two weeks?

    Not much fun for me. I had been looking forward to this armor since it was first announced, then I had to cancel my order. Nowhere near enough cash to get it now and nowhere near enough time for me to save up enough. No friends to borrow money from to get it with either, even though I'd pay it back in full.

    Ebay:
    *Hugs and pets his pre-order*

    All the pics I've seen make me want this more and more... it's so perfectly fitting with the theme of Classics... it's an update of the character who still manages to be recognizable as 'G1 Ultra Magnus'.

    Makes me glad I got Classics Ultra Magnus and Skywarp back when the 2 pack was cheap. Prolly not gonna be so cheap after this baby hits.

    Can't, my paypal is no longer verified. My paypal was hooked to my bank account which I gave my mom joint control over so she could write checks from it if she ever needed it because money got tight after the divorce. After I moved in with my dad she went behind my back and closed the entire account out and took all my paychecks I had in it :(

    Not sure, I owed eBay money from the last figs I tried to sale on eBay that never sold when she closed my bank account so I'm assuming i'd have to pay them before I could even begin to sale stuff.

    I'm not sure if you can anymore. I know you used to be able to, but I think you have to have one to sell now. I'm pretty sure eBay requires sellers to accept paypal as a form of payment, which would mean you'd have to have a PP account.

    With the problems your posting about the last thing you should be concerned about is a toy.

    Get your life squared away first then start buying again.

    My life is squared away, I'm just wanting to get this armor set due to it being something I wanted for a long time and I have a job coming up. I just wanna be able to get this thing without having to shell out massive amounts of cash for it on evilbay.

    Checked my ebay and I think I already paid off what I owed them cuz I don't see any claims of owed money from them, still got no paypal though.
