    Have you ever had any plans for buying a TF but something got in the way and ruined everything? The supposed TFP First Edition line being released in this month screwed up some plans I had for Christmas since I would have more money by then but the wait might just save me.

    I wouldn't exactly say ruined everything? I don't know. I like Transformers and all, but I don't think I've ever really had the "OH MY GAWD MAH LIEF IS OVER!" in a Transformers aspect.

    Personally, the worst it has ever gotten though is one time I walked into my local Walmart, and I met... "THE SCALPER!!!" he was six foot seven, acne beyond belief his hands folded into his folds, needless to say. He was obese. His glasses hung off his nose, threatening to reach his toes, as he grabbed every tuner mudflap in sight. This wasn't the only thing to sit in this man's couch, for alas, there went: Seven Wreckgars, Seven Thundercrackers, Two Warpaths, and a Scourge... Needless to say, my shopping was done before it even began...

    I finally convinced myself that I wanted Lugnut, and the three that were at my local TJMaxx were gone when I got there. I considered it providence.

    Yup. just now in fact. I would've used my £50 to buy some Prime figures from Kapow but ended up buying the collectors edition of Assassins Creed Revelations, ah well more time to save up at least.

    Yeah. The money I was going to use to buy TRU Masterpiece Grimlock had to be diverted to more pressing matters.

    And then all the Grimlocks went poof.

    Kind of other way round but our pet bird became sick right after I spent some serious money on TFs and we had to dip into the family fund to pay the vet. I sold the toys off not just to compensate but because I felt damn stupid.

    More on topic, I cancelled my preorder of HA Soundwave then when I went back after a couple of days he was already sold out, and because I didn't want to miss out I ordered from somewhere else for about $10 more, then found it back in preorder at the original place :banghead:

    My plan:
    Walk into Wal-Mart and buy every single Prime toy.
    They're TRU exclusive.
    FUUUUUUUUUUUU-

    We don't know that for certain. (Unless I missed something) TRU may just be getting them first. In any case, the main line is going to be everywhere eventually.
