    Today, I got courageous and asked my toystore if have they ever recieved Animated Blurr? The answer: NO! They NeVER recieved that wave. Why Hasbro, why?

    It's not Hasbro's fault your store didn't get it. They don't just blindly deliver to every store in the world.

    Why can't you just order this online? It's been out for a while and isn't expensive.

    That sucks... I've ssen them shelve warming at times in my area. Which is weird as I've never gotten the impression that he's crappy or anything. From all I've read, he's awesome... go figure.

    Did your Toystore actually order them in ?

    If they didn't then it's their fault, not Hasbro's

    At least you have a toy store to go to. Granted I have 3 Toys R Us' within half an hour from me, but I would really love to see some more Mom & Pop toy stores around. Those flat out don't exist anymore. KayBee Toys, despite their mark-up, was at least a very accessible place to go, and another option for exclusives. Quite frankly, I hate the fact that Target and WalMart have taken over the toy retail market. I love dedicated toy stores and hate the fact that I have to be living in a time where I have to see them all go out of business.

    Sorry for that tangent, but that's just my two cents.

    What izz this "Mom & Pop store" u speek off? :D 

    I too agree with this sentiment. A local comic store here is doing bad business because of this.

    I lucked up and found 1 (ONE) Blurr on the Peg at Walmart for my niece. It was next to a Freeway Jazz, so i assume the new wave came out.

    I was about to give up and wait for that redeco *Shudders* but this made my day.

    And i love this misplaced rage...
    I went to Burger King and they didn't have the McRIB!!! Why, god, why? Why Burger King are you so creepy and hoarding McDonald's food???? WHY!?!?!?!?

    sorry, just got carried away.

    Yeah I'd ask them. They might not have ordered it but there's also a slim chance that they ordered it but never put it out on the shelves. With the holidays around here I've seen some stuff put out that I haven't seen in a long time. Worth a shot at least.

    I miss the McRib :(

    Its god damn expensive. It almost costs close to a leader class figure. No kidding.

    idk about it. They just told me that Hasbro didnt send that wave to them

    I wonder if that wave will hit...

    Honestly i can understand being upset with a lack of access to a figure because of stores not having it or not having stores at all.

    And i suppose i am a bit pampered by the ease of access that HTS/BBTS/Ebay offers.

    i just don't get the rage at Hasbro.

    unless you get poor QC, then rage on.

    McRib=yucky.
    Baconator at Wendy's= <3
    lol

    I had a similiar problem with the Shockwave/ Skywarp wave. When I was in Wally World, Around December last year, I asked them to go in the storage room and look for one. Happily they did. But now finally they released that wave and it is the first time, I have ever seen it on shelf. Target never even got that wave and just skipped to the Lugnut repaint and Wreckgar.
