    Does anyone have a line on SS86 Rumble in SE QLD? I held off ordering it from JB when they had it on pre-order, and passed up on Amazon local stock, under the misguided impression that he'd show up en-mass like the other Cores did, even if he didn't wind up shelf-warming. To date I've only seen his wave-mate (Bayverse Laserbeak), who actually is shelf warming, so clearly I made a poor judgement call there.

    Honestly don’t know where you could look for rumble now. Don’t look on eBay whatever you do, he goes for like $45 upwards.

    Do we really think that both Legacy Evo Wave 1 and 2 on Amazon are being released on April 1st or are we going to see maybe Wave 2 being pushed back to another date?

    Not sure if it's been mentioned, but if anyone's chasing the re-issue Ultra-class Beast Megatron then check Mr Toys. They're on sale for now (run out perhaps?) for $45.

    you'd think EB games would have preorders up for the SS game edition figures by now, or heck, even wave 2 of evo.

    btw do we know what the fuck is happening with wave 2 of evo? nowhere except popcultcha and amazon have preorders for them up

    zing (and presumably EBgames) have preorders for the Gamer edition figures.

    all set to release may 1st, and they're far less inconsistent with their release dates than amazon, the figures will release on that date, 9 times out of 10.
    considering cancelling my amazon preorder so i can order one from here (they also have crazy fast shipping to my area)

    Has anyone bought from kidinn before? I know they are based in Spain but that's about all.

    EDIT: Never mind. Have looked at reviews and see that these guys are shonky. Don't know where I might find a MOTU Origins Roton from...overseas seems to be a give in atm.

    I got mine from an Italian e-bayer. But I had to wait for some time for a reasonable price, and then pounce on it once I saw it.

    I'd go for this one if I were you. That's about $10 less than I paid in October.

    Sorry to bring this up... Open packaging & missing heads.
    Today & yesterday I saw headless Skullgrin, SG Soundwave, & my pick of the bunch is the faceless Legacy Kickback (face & antennae ripped off with back of head still in tact).

    Ugh... And people had the gall to ask if Legacy Tarn would have a removable mask, back when we first saw in-package photos.
    As if...!

    I guess I should consider myself fortunate, nothing I have wanted to buy has been defaced (no pun intended, honest!) by vandals.

    fucking christ.

    while i've never seen anything as bad as that (apart from the GVK roaring Kong toy that had it's rubber face torn off), it fucking annoys and angers me to no end

    and i've just realised that hasbro could just fucking close the boxes with no issue, if the stores selling the figures didn't resell returned products (AKA what aussie stores fuckin do)
