    Why are the new guys with only 15 posts always the first to find new stuff?

    I found them here in Tucson Arizona at a Wal-Mart store. I unfortunately don't have access to a digi-cam to subtantiate the sighting. I have been honest of any sightings I reported in the AZ thread. I hope fellow trans-fans in Tucson can pick one of them up and photograph one of them and the receipt. There are now only one of Excellion and two Overdrive GTS left at the time.

    Not to post off topic, but does anybody know when that stupid Space Camp promotion will be over with? I'm sick of those little stickers on the new toys' packaging.

    back on topic: Excillion is sexy.

    :rolleyes: 

    Seriously... I'm far from being a fan of Ryan's, but his news staff has been doing a fairly decent job lately as compared to certain other sites. So I seriously don't see a reason for this unasked for Seibertron-bashing.

    Agreed... We prefer that site bashing be NOT be done on our boards no matter what the situation is...

    On the topic of the figures being out, the Wal*Mart I checked yesterday night on my way home (a 24 hour one) had a fresh case of old stuff...

    God I hate Wal*Mart...

    I don't see a reason either, so with that the next person that does get's an official warning.

    Not that sexy.

    Mine has a few paint trails near the windows, and a small paint chip on the edge of each door.

    My advice is not to rush out and buy these, and hope that the second run of them doesn't have any paint issues.

    It's probably not the entire run. The paint apps always vary a lot from toy to toy.

    I'd heard stories of it having "door problems", but went ahead and ordered him. Once I had it I immediately saw what the problem was.

    Funny to see Nevermore always taking credit for these news he has nothing to do with. The news should read "Decepticharge from board X found Excellion & Override GTS". Period.

    well he credits the guy with the sighting, and at the same time is the person who posts the news to this board. NM never takes credit where its not his. NM is constantly scouring the 'net for news and I for one am grateful!

    Yes, site bashing is looked down upon. :stick: 

    On the other hand, store bashing is a whole other ball game, and it's open season! :D 

    I HATE WALMART!!! :mad  :banghead:  [​IMG]

    Back on topic, what door problems are being refered to? :huh
    Not that is matters much, since I'll be getting one to mod with Hotshot to create a closer G1 version. :thumb  ;)

    He brought it to our attention after scouring the net, therefore he gets credit for that...

    The day you scour the net and you bring something to our attention, you get credit for it too...

    I remember my five minutes of fame for the Overbite/Repugnus auction... but I credited the guy who found and even fricking BIN'ed the auction, and he never got a mention (he even posted the eBay link here, just not as news - in WI's sightings thread). Then some guy from The Allspark links to the 2005 news bit on the auction, and only HE gets the credit on their frontpage.

    That's life, and it's filled with enough REAL problems and issues that getting worked up over who gets credited for what is a bit petty. And for what it's worth, 2005 is almost always fair about who gets the credit - normally, a Nevermore news post gives him credit but also the original poster.
