Love Pile of Loot. Order it now, got it covered. If I find it at retail later, no problem!
$35 for Blitzwing by himself??? WTF do they come up with these prices. I really want Blitzy but no way in hell am I spending almost 2x as much as I can get him for in a store! This is why I no longer order TFs online. Huge mark up in cost just to get the thing.
I have a feeling blitzwing will be tough to find for a little while...maybe people who don't have the patience or money to drive all over wil just want to know they can get it delivered to them. I want one MINT as can be and one opened so it's worth it to me.
Bah. The wave 4 preorder does me no good. I only need Sentinel Prime and Swoop. I don't need another Jazz and I most certainly won't be buying Elite Guard Bumblebee. (Oh hell no.)
Sucks. But, it proved me right yet again, I thought they'd move wave 4's release date up. If they keep pushing the product out like this, we'll see the end of the line long before it should dry up.
If you look there ARE preorders for just Sentinel Prime and Swoop.
i just bit the bullet and pre-ordered blitz and swoop
soundwave's not in wave 4? um that's bad I shall have to double my efforts to find one then.
I can tell you the exact reason why. If he sold them for the normal price, he would order a ton of those cases...sell out of Blitzwing (because he is the only one people will want) and be stuck with a ton of dead stock.
If you don't want to pay the price to get it FOR SURE, fine....go waste gas and find it. But if you don't want to worry about it, pay the premium.
He's fully justified in the price, imo.
and universe wave 3, with better images, sideswipe with new head and ironhide looks better too + weapon (blade, not gun )
much better images.
I'm going to pass on these for now. The month they are coming out I'm already spending close to $200 on japanese deluxes not to mention the games I plan to buy for my 360.
why would you preorder it or buy it if you are getting out of the hobby according to your for sale thread here:
Man... I keep telling myself that I'm not gonna just scoop all these up (I mean... where exactly are all my other Classics? in rubbermaid boxes sporadically) but that Wave 03 looks awesome!
Cool. It's nice to see some new pictures of Sideswipe. Especially with his own head on him now. I was hoping he'd also get something else instead of the backpack thingy, like a shoulder launcher or something, but oh well. I'll still more than likely get him.
i hate hate hate HATE!!! how they always photoshop the pics for promo and marketing they always looks so nice and then the toy ends up with dull colors and heavy looking plastic, i know its how it always is but such a bummer sometimes.
Blast it, Swoop is sold out.
Got everything else I wanted though.
I preordered him and Sentinel almost immediately after hearing they were available individually.
I ain't wastin' time or gas looking for them. Not a chance.
And folks, lemme tell ya, Blitzwing is most definitely worth the price. He's one hell of a fantastic figure. Perfect? No, but he's well past great. BUY HIM. DOO EET NOW.
Repeat this mantra: "I want Blitzwing, I will buy him. I will doo eet now." repeat as needed.
BBTS is WWWWAAAAYYYY overpriced! Think they are a bit greedy! Especially when that figured will sell for $19.99 in the stores.
