    I wonder which is worse.

    Toy swapping or straight up theft?

    Price reduction. I think they are trying to move stock. I’m looking at you Chromia.

    They also have Siege Shockwave on price reduction. $80

    So, anyone seen any Siege Thundercrackers around? (Online or in-store? Preferably in Brisbane)
    Pre-ordered mine on Amazon like 4 months ago and they ran out of stock anyway. Currently says "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock" on the store page. Not exactly reassuring.
    Not quite ready to deal with scalper prices on eBay, but I'm more than happy to cancel that preorder and tell Amazon where to shove it.

    Thundercracker and Springer are now separated between waves. It was a change that occurred later in the game.

    Funny, because Amazon actually fulfilled several preorders, and only changed their listed release date after the original August 1st date came and went, and only changed to "we don't know when it'll be back in stock" within the last day or so.

    If the waves were changed that late, then Amazon is liable for false advertising.

    Oh dear. Wouldn't be the first time though. Remember when EB Games changed their preorder listing?

    From what I can gather, the supplier decided they couldn't be bothered giving EB Games priority. These delays aren't uncommon.

    Not mine, but I've been given permission to share around provided I keep the identity a secret.

    Pretty peeved TBH. Thank fuck Walgreens allows freight forwarder usage.

    Reminds me of that scene from the Lethal Weapon movie.

    Cop: What’s your name?
    Kid: Don’t tell him your name, Alfred. Whoops...

    Not sure if this is news, but if anyone’s interested, I found a few Studio Series KSI Bosses at Eastland Target in Ringwood VIC. First new SS Voyager I’ve seen in a brick-and-mortar store this year.
