    The 3 I ordered from amazon came this past week and they're definitely one of if not the best deluxe mold for Prime so far...

    I can't wait to spot this guy in retail because I am way too lazy/cheap to buy one online. Chances are I'll never see it though... Still, nice!

    Probably the best figure in the Prime line.

    Probably, but look at it this way. Judging by how fast things become old (and old in the sense that nobody gives a shit, not old in the sense of becoming valuable), one of two things will likely happen, either of which will work out in our favor. Either wave 2+ will show up here & we'll be able to get em for 19 in total at the most, or time will go by & it'll cost us around that (if not less) to buy online, especially if we bundle up to save on shipping. I mean, its basically the same price right now to buy wave 2 figures online as it would be to pay full price in store for them (even better if you get 2 or more from the same person), and while I don't exactly see Vehicon's market value dropping down to US retail + shipping any time soon, chances are that it'll happen eventually.


    In either case, early stuff is awesome, and now that I think about it, the last couple of things have gotten to me quicker than usual. Like, 3 of my last 4 packages beat the clock by 2 days & only one of em lagged... I think I've been lucky. :)

    If you like surprise packages, try getting into 3A toys. No one knows when they'll show up on your doorstep if you order from their website. Anyway, grats on getting one of the best in the RiD line. That leg transformation is fantastic.

    I've only ever bought them online for more than I wish I had. But fear not, in a couple months these will be widely available thanks to case revisions.

    I also got a nice Vehicon surprise yesterday. Dude called me from the toyshop to tell me Cyberverse Dreadwing and Ironhide were now in. When I got there, he had also sat aside a First Edition Vehicon for me! That dude is the dude.
