    It happened to me, but my card company took care of it with no more than a phone call, which is, in the greater scheme of things, a minor inconvenience. I'm more annoyed by the people who push their shopping buggies in the middle of the parking lot when you're trying to get past them to find a parking spot :lol 

    Now... Let's get some previews for this! Or at the very least, the brochure... Or some hints...

    I guess there's going to be a lot of swords in this set.

    I wonder if they'll pull the Generations Drift mold out again. He might make a decent Knight.

    Truth. Sorry kids but the G1 love has been coming from Hasbro, not the convention folks.

    And WTF is Star Saber or any of this IDW crap.

    There will never be a Botcon Swindle toy due to fans using him to represent the whole credit card fiasco. So, no credit card Pirate Swindle for anyone. (unless you make your own)

    I could certainly see a few of the Beast Hunters figures re-purposed as Knights...and think they just might look cool...though I doubt those would fit with my currect collecting direction.

    How could you possibly be this ignorant of a characters existence? He's getting the MP treatment even.

    Ouch!

    But, honestly, isn't it time to move on? I'm not saying we should forget. Or even forgive, at this point. Just that it seems unnecessary to bring it up every time FunPub's mentioned.

    Is it just me, or does the pirate logo look, dare I say, more Autobot than Decepticon? Or is it just because it's a rogue faction that has Bots and Cons in it that the symbols merged?

    Huh... Well they may actually get my money for the set this year. I do love pirates and I adore the look of the knight symbol
