    We have to share with GI Joe this year. Especially after the dud that was last year's exclusive. I think HTS still have those in stock don't they?

    ^Well, they have Prime Deluxe Prime in stock, but the Ultimate Prime sold out within a few hours. Guessing it is wait for Botcon on this one.

    There's been no indication we have to "share", has there?

    I thought the ultimate optimus prime sold well. I know the deluxe didn't, but it seemed like the ultimate optimus sold fine.

    The funny thing was people predicted that FE Prime deluxe Optimus Prime would sell out fast and the DOTM Ultimate Prime would still be available for a while. It ended up being the other way around.

    There's been no indication we're "sharing" anything with G.I. Joe. That Starscream redeco of the Skystriker (or whatever the jet's called) as a G.I. Joe exclusive and Transformers still saw two exclusives released at SDCC.

    I guess we'll have to wait until Botcon at least for any news.

    I'm already excited by the Shockwave HISS Tank (I passed on Starscream Skystriker last year) and I might pick up that MonsterArts Burning Godzilla too so it's already looking like an expensive July for me. I'm curious what the Transformer exclusive(s) will be. We've had three years running of one big thing (reissue Soundwave/reissue Blaster/Ultimate Optimus) and one smaller thing (Mighty Muggs Optimus/Mighty Muggs Prowl/Prime Deluxe Optimus) at least so we'll see if that pattern holds this year or if Hasbro goes a different route.

    I just hope that one of these years they will rent the capacity to handle all the people trying to purchase stuff. I was just happy last year that there was nothing I wanted that badly (although I would have taken a Starscream). Just not interested in sitting there for a couple hours with a frozen screen and hitting the refresh button over and over.

    Yup, standing in line for a couple of hours, only to be told to come back a day later to stand in line for a couple more hours, isn't much more fun either (happened to me last year, I didn't have that experience the previous two years I attended either).

    Either way I hope Hasbro is prepared for the demand.

    They did well with the reissues. I'd buy those myself.

    On the off chance we do have to "share" an exclusive with G.I.Joe for SDCC does it really matter?

    Think of all the toys coming down the pipeline..... now think of rehashed, derivative, uninspired, products they're shoving into Retaliation.


    G.I.Joe fans deserve to be thrown a bone, they keep getting short-changed.

    We didn't find out what the SDCC exclusive for last year was until much later than Toy Fair, so this year is likely to be the same.

    I did overhear a Hasbro rep saying the TF SDCC exclusive was going to be big and he thought fans would like it. So take that as you will.

    I take that as early access to a US release of MP-10. Maybe a long stacks variant.

    Well that would make sense, given last year it was MP Rodimus.

    On the one hand, I kind of hope they bring out a US release of Animated Blackout, since they said his production was all finished up and we should have seen him as an SDCC exclusive anyway before this, maybe with an Animated Fugitive Waspinator to go with him.

    On the other, if SDCC exclusives were Animated Unreleased figures I'd be really annoyed at having to track them down since I still haven't gotten any SDCC exclusives I've really wanted.

    And it better not be a damn FE Bulkhead re-package, because I'd literally plot Hasbro's demise if that were the case. *SIGH* If only I could find an FE Bulkhead at one of the TRUs around here. Stupid Optimus case load, if Hasbro wasn't so Optimus happy when loading up those damn cases of Voyagers we Canadians would mostly all have Bulkheads by now.

    The only TF exclusive last year was the Starscream Skystiker(which no thanks to Hasbro's reschedualing and I had to work that Tuesday)I miised out.I thought the exclusive was the Shockwave Hiss tank with Destro.
