    Seriously less than 5 minutes. I am not kidding. White Barricade was gone in about 5 minutes as well.

    The whole 08 BB thing is getting really retarded now. They are all over the place, I see them all the time, there are tons on Ebay & they're not selling for more than retail, yet nobody can find them. Scalpers are grabbing them up by the truck load. It's really getting stupid now. It has been going on for far too long.

    Oooh look! Winning bid $10.99.

    Retail price $10.99. That guy just made a couple bucks on his inflated shipping price. Now there's a really good reason for scalpers to be grabbing these!

    Is it okay for me to call people *****ing retards yet? Or is that too harsh?

    I got one a few days ago at Walmart. I really don't see what the big deal is. It's not a great toy. The first 'Bee was much better.

    I totally agree! I don't see what the big deal is about the concept Camaro, I prefer the classic 70's style. The black stripes on the hood scratched right off my 08 'Bee & his legs don't line up properly



    Here's another chance to get the 08 'Bee:

    I saw White Barricade yesterday at Target. It was the last one, along with Deluxe Bonecrusher and Brawl. Brawl is the coolest looking one of the 3 IMO.

    I finally found one at Walmart today (thanks Lupis Convoy :thumb ). I've noticed the same thing, tons of concept bumblebees on ebay and the prices aren't going for maybe 2-3 dollars over retail.

    I will laugh mightly if scalpers are left holding the bag, or in this case Bumblebees, when Christmas is all said and done.

    I'm guessing you will have a lot of PM's asking you to pick one up. :D

    I've noticed the stores around me have stocked up in the past week, but it's all the old stuff. The shelf warmers Swindle & Bonecrusher return! If this keeps up maybe the 08 BB will be hard to find by X-Mas. I know a douchebag in the area that hogged up all 4 from Kohl's.

    Whatever! I just don't get it.
