    Wow, 12 days is a zombie thread?

    I didn't see that thread, hence why I asked, but thanks for the scolding.

    I thought they merged the two Fan First Friday threads... I had no idea this was considered a "zombie" thread.

    That would've been the smart thing to do, or at the very least link this to thread from the old one, given the similar topics.

    I think it would be much more useful to have a thread with speculation approaching an event or reveal and one for discussing said event or reveals with pictures and information of the reveals in the first post.
    The speculation thread could then be locked after the second thread is started and people would be able to find all relevant info in the first post of the new thread.

    A bit condescending, but...ok.

    Not me...I voted for the other guy.

    Not meant to be condescending. The current reissues just have a very low chance at offering something exciting or new that we haven't gotten before or that you can't find still for affordable prices all over eBay. But the one thing we haven't gotten before is these figures in packaging that resembles how they were released back in the 80's, so even though we've had a reissue of Blaster a hand full of times we've never had one yet presented like this. Getting these reissues all together in matching, retro style packaging is the real draw here.

    Ok, but only if we can also do appreciation threads for each individual figure from every line as well.

    I'm starting to really kinda dislike these fan transformers Friday. I mean stuff drops and your at a MAD DASH to try and GET the figures pre-ordered or just order if in-stock. I just don't have enough money to buy everything i want. I mean its gonna take many many months and then i just don't think its ALL going to be there when i have the money. I REALLY wanna hope and pray it WILL be there cause MOTU Orgins and G.I.Joe Classified YES PLEASE but i can't cause of other figures. If you add in Star Wars that is also gonna be a problem too but i shack my head going oh well maybe.

    Fan Friday or not, the products would still get put up for preorder and released, just put them on preorder somewhere that doesn't charge up front (amazon, walmart and pulse don't charge upfront except for maybe a temp authorization charge at pulse)

    Yeah my friend i did but didn't get everything i wanted at Wal-Mart cause the pre-order sold out. I'm talking about Elita-1 and Bumblebee,Soudwave and I'm sure MOTU Origin as well. I have a bunch of pre -orders at those places and i can't go over what i can't afford. Ya know what I'm saying friend cause it would be awesome to be rich in a way. That's why i said what i said cause man,..... you'd have to have a big debit or credit amount to pay for everything.

    Did Hasbro release a decent photo of Rotorstorm's new head? I think I only saw a blurry picture on facebook.
