    Same here if I'm able to choose the figure myself, that's why it's kind of sad to see these new Hasbro ones packaged like the Takara ones:(  Can't see the figure...sigh.

    We have 2 sets of Wreckers at Comic Ink...(and yeah...a bunch of Optimus, Shockwave and Jazz marked on the cheap...)

    One assembled Ruination so people can check it out up close (which is going home once the 2 sets sell :)  )

    QFT.

    Online is how I got MP Optimus Prime last year, never saw him in the store. No time to camp out or go at store opening, and by lunch time (assuming you can get away from work long enough) it's usually too late.

    Fortunately I am not an MISB collector so even if the box arrives with a few dings I can't say I'd mind all that much, as long as the product inside is good I'll be happy. That said, my Optimus arrived in perfect condition, but I can see how online = taking your chances if you want MISB.

    I have a MP Soundwave that I am looking to trade. Right now will trade straight across for either a MP10 or SDCC 2013 Metroplex. If anyone is interested just shoot me a PM.

    Local only right now as I don't want to deal with shipping. I live in Van Nuys CA 91405, will meet within 15 miles.

    At least they are actually getting them in socal. I wouldnt doubt that they sell out 2 min after the store opens. There were a bunch of people waiting in line in Hayward this morning according to a friend.

    I absolutely agree and the see through is more tougher and can take a shipment pounding and arrives in mint condition even though tru doesn't protect well packing, i didn't care. Now with all these dents on the new box, it will def fuel my rage at tru cs. Also i work at 10am and won't get fired for sw so online is my best bet. No tru will hold which is a good thing. But it still doesn't stop me from asking if they can help me out, if they do i give them a great rating on their review online, if they don't then i understand because alot of us want this figure, and holding blows it for those that drove far away to get him early, so i just go after work and hope they stock them. Was very lucky to run into two stocks of mp 10 last year at a couple of stores.
