    Nope. One stock and they're gone, HTS said it.

    I would expect not. Go ahead and keep an eye out but I would assume he's gone.

    don't waste your time and save up the cash for the eventual and hopefully superior takara deco bruticus.

    I think it also wise to assume Takara's will be unpainted with a bunch of stickers and microns.

    i don't think the nycc bumblebee and arcee was relisted. it was never sold out. bruticus will be relisted just as much as starscream skystriker will be which is never. only chance is if some orders got cancelled.

    :(  That would suck. I am crossing my fingers and hoping they stick with paint schemes similar to the United line. In other words, shinny and metallic :lol

    When did the Bumblebee/Arcee set ever sell out and then get relisted???

    Right now, Shockwave's an exception since we don't know if FoC stuff will be released there or via United. United has hardly died considering the PCC stuff is being released that way. Doesn't mean it's impossible, but I wouldn't assume anything yet, especially with so many other FoC toys to come that Takara has to figure out what they want to do with as well as the Prime line.

    Yeah, unless stock comes back due to cancellations, or random stock is found in a warehouse (which has maybe happened before? I remember someone somewhere claimed so in a thread before SDCC), there will be no restock.

    Honestly, I'm sure at some point it'll get a rerelease as a TRU or Amazon exclusive.

    As far as I know there hasn't been a precedent for SDCC exclusives to turn into retailer exclusives. SDCC Exclusives are supposed to be incentives to go to the convention. If they were available at a later date and as a retailer exclusive, what incentive do you have to go? Sure there's other events at SDCC, but the BIG thing that a lot of people go for are the exclusives.

    But yeah...NYCC Arcee and 'Bee never sold out. They're still available on HTS now.

    This has to be the fastest I have ever seen something sell out. I literally finished placing my order, and getting my confirmation. As I was doing that I was telling a friend on IM that they were up. He checked it in that same minute and it was sold out.

    HTS must not have saved very many products from SDCC 2012 for online sales. I think if I recall correctly that all of the SDCC 2012 exclusives had sold out in less than two hours from their posting today. Except for the Avengers Helicarrier.

    if there is serious money to be made, it shall be done. Besides, that's the closest game color version out there. It could also go up as a TFSource exclusive or (heaven forbid) a BBTS exclusive...
