    As someone who paid full price + shipping for Bee.... trust me, you want to get him at a discount.

    He’s not a godawful figure. There is some decent engineering and he looks nice enough. But his build quality is pretty shoddy. Mine’s arms are floppy and loose, and overall he’s kind of just a mushy mess of barely-off tolerances.

    A lot more palatable if not purchased at a premium, I think.

    That’s bad timing for me. I made a decent sized purchase on Tuesday! Got bonus eBay bucks but this was a way better deal.

    I made a post in tech support, but got no response, so asking here, where I hope others know of a method: does anyone know how to set up RSS feeds for watched threads? I hate having to revisit the thread on-site in order to get new updates, particularly in periodically frequent and sparse activity threads like this, when an RSS feed would give me a stream of the information.

    A quick Google search returned a number of results for guides on how you could accomplish this. Did you do any research prior to asking for help?

    RSS is a parallel publishing format typically set up by the site admin. I'm not aware of any forums that support this directly, but the first example I found shows how you can set up a blog to post email notifications from the site, which would then drive your RSS feed notifications. Seems convoluted but should work in theory.

    Having said that, while it sucks that no one replied to your other thread, this is definitely not the right thread for this question, and incidentally this is the only one I have considered setting up with emails to be sure I don't miss posted deals. One of the reasons I haven't done that is that I don't want emails notifying me of irrelevant posts like this one (and admittedly, my reply) or people who just post "any flash deals?!".

    Just food for thought, hope you can get it working.

    I have indeed used Google Fu to try to look up how to do this. However, as you said, RSS feeds are usually generated by site admins. And the on-site RSS feed I've found are for newly created threads on a forum topics, or only for the news. In regards to the example you referred to, are you talking about a setting up a bot to monitor posts, translate them to a blog, and then set up an RSS feed? I'm not quite sure what you meant.

    Previously each thread had an RSS feed enabled (not in the last "update" but the one before that), presumably the MODs turned it off. But posting and waiting for a reply in tech support would be a better place than here. Someone will answer eventually

    Would you happen to have an example link that may or may not be active? Maybe the thread’s RSS feed url can point me in the direction.

    Take the RSS feed to another thread!

    Octone for $12 isn't full price.... it was out of stock last I saw.

    My local TRU that's closing got in some G2 Superions. I got mine for about $40 plus tax. They currently are at 30% off all action figures.

    Based on his history, looks like Minnetonka, Minnesota.

    My TRU shelves have resembled a going out of business sale for years. Don’t think I’d bother checking it out.

    That's the one. Another local collector said there were a lot more Superions a few weeks ago. Makes sense they would empty the warehouses out into the stores that are closing, so I'd check out the ones in your area, if any.
