    I'm getting a bit worried now, but at the same time, not worried.

    On one hand, it says "Sold out for SHOW", meaning there could be some stock left just for the HTS site.

    But I just called the HTS hotline thing on their website, and the woman I spoke to said that when it says "Sold out for show" it means they're sold out and won't hit online. I'm calling a bit of BS on that though, since last year the Starscream Striker was listed as the same "Sold out for Show", yet it still made it onto the site.

    Make of it as you will, but I'll hold tight before spending scalper prices on Bruticus.

    And sorry if this isn't news, just thought I'd mention it.

    Does "Sold Out for Show" mean they're sold out ENTIRELY or 'just today'?

    Me guessing the former.

    I'm guessing they still have some for the site on Monday/Tuesday. I did a little research and last year Starscream Striker sold out during the show, and some still made their way online. Heck even I got a Striker last year.

    I'm sure that we'll get some for online, as well as Derpy and Jem. What shocks me is that Shockwave hasn't sold out yet, Starscream went like lightning last year, in show and offline, and now, he's still in stock.

    Not to sound rude, but there's dozens of topics discussing this, check the Toy section of the board.

    But typically it's on Monday or Tuesday, usually around 9-11am, sometimes later though. They'll usually give us a heads up about the day sometime tomorrow.

    Who or what's Jem? I though about the Tron: Legacy character at first, but that's Gem. :wink:

    The Skystriker is a much cooler and iconic Joe Vehicle (in the vintage mold) then the redone HISS. If Shockwave had been the vintage HISS mold, it might have done better. Also helps that Starscream turned into a plane. Shockwave was a gun, not a tank to most people.

    Which time zone, strictly from your experience *is PDT*.

    Concerning the notifications, are they via email from HTS, or some sort of announcement at the Con?

    I'm central time, and they've shown up no later then 1pm for me.

    The notifications I've gotten are usually from here or other TF fan sites, they give the fans a heads up so we can plan ahead.

    I'm pretty sure there's separate stock for HTS.

    When I went last year, the GI JOE stuff were first to go. So I am a bit surprised the HISS Tank is still available along with one of the Jinxs.

    What time of the day was that pic taken anyways?

    That's what I heard from someone over at Seibertron saying. I think we can expect to see him on HTS on Monday or Tuesday but not everyone will be able to get him. :(
