    Ok, no stupid answers of "ITS COMING SOON IDIOT!!!"

    Looking at items like movie deluxe premiums. These were supposed to be target exlcusives but HTS lists them as coming soon.

    In short, the coupons of 20% off and free shipping (or similar) that i always get for HTS are much better than paying for gas driving around and more importantly actually finding what im looking for.

    And... it is actually CHEAPER than stores including shipping with theit coupons.

    So basically i would like to finish my movie collection off with about 10 characters and get them all from HTS in one big order. They are all listed as coming soon.

    *Voyager Premos, Deluxe Premos, unreleased deluxes, and 2 unreleased real gears*

    My question is will these items actually be available from HTS? For some reason i doubt it... But i will say it is nice for about a year after the line started to actually have a site that lists ALL of the newly released items for the line. I just dont know if the coming soon is BS or can actually be counted on?

    Any thoughts or past experiences?

    Thanks

    If HTS says "coming soon," there's no way to know for sure when it'll actually arrive--although an estimated date is often noted.

    But yeah, I think you can rely on HTS coming through.

    allspark power are the target exclusives. the premiums are general release. HTS will get them in, though maybe not all at the same time.

    Which Allspark Power toys are you referring to? The repainted Energon and Cybertron scout toys are, but everything else in the 'subline' is a general release as well.
