    Good lord, that was crazy fast.

    I'm glad I ordered one. Almost didn't bother in favor of dicking around on YouTube.

    Glad I got my order in. Which means i'll probably end up winning one through the transform your summer contest.

    I'm actually surprised they lasted as long as they did. I thought they would have been sold out by noon (I'm on the east coast).

    I managed to get one as well, as part of my continuing saga of snubbing Coke's ownership of Atlanta, although I was worried this was going to be another Nemesis Prime situation.

    10 AM EST was when I bought mine.

    This just goes to show that HTS could sell the SDCC Rodimus if they really wanted too.

    Got mine around 11 a.m. Central time. I was very surprised it was still available.

    When you guys check your order status what does it say? Mine says "Not Shipped" I just want to make sure my order went through.

    For those who didn't get one, they may be more plentiful once the TYS winners receive theirs. If Pepsi is giving away 100 per day for about 82 days there will be a flood of them on ebay eventually.

    what the hell is with people buying this thing so fast?

    pepsi convoys have been readily available and very cheap for a looooong time. hell, they still are. shorter smokestacks and a different box somehow make this thing more desirable?

    Where are these "Cheap" Pepsi convoys? Cheapest I saw was $59.00

    Also, a different Box is usually a good reason to buy the Takara version of a toy you already have, why not this?

    Yes, but this is even cheaper than they have been before, and added the 10% discount..Even better!

    Yes, define "cheap"; I've never seen a Pepsi Convoy for $25 + shipping and that's the main reason I haven't bothered picking up a version of this figure before now. I don't care about the smokestacks, so the Takara version has no extra appeal to me and the price was always too high to justify a purchase.
