    It’s a perfect example of discourse today that something so overwhelmingly positive can be created, but a bunch of sad men who didn’t get hugged enough as kids can thrash around endlessly with insignificant complaints, and their perspective will instinctively be framed as an equivalent by almost everyone.

    False equivalence is one of the most destructive, exploited fallacies in the world today.

    “I think it’s bad” is not always equal to “I think it’s good” just because the two phrases sound equal. Not every equal but opposite reaction comes from sound thinking. Sometimes “I think it’s bad” is nothing but a jerk, speaking from a gut filled with bile.

    Just a heads up for any UK buyers who’ve still not ordered/on the fence, KapowToys Website is back online & they have Unicron back in stock to preorder (he was listed as ‘sold out’ earlier this week)

    I’ll be pre-ordering him later, so +1 for me!

    They are the biggest e-tailer ..... if there were 2500 orders for kapow, takara tomy, hasbro asia and the australia affiliates... 100% guarantee you at least 500 orders are with BBTS.

    and for the record.... bbts has told people, and TCP's owner has also said they are putting their orders in the last day. both stores will place bulk orders over the phone on the last day..

    LOL boooooo to you sir! I too am from Cleveland. I think we'll at least see the postseason soon if not this year. You lost half a "like" for the Cleveland defeatist attitude that I am all too familiar with. ;) 

    The rest of your post is spot on. I have no compassion for trolls who get spanked. What a miserable existence a person must have if they feel the best use of their free time is to antagonize the fans of a product that they have no intention of purchasing.

    That is very possible. But also keep in mind BBTS and TFsource operate out of the US so they are in direct competition with Pulse. Maybe Pulse isnt losing any money on the costs of the product, but its definitely giving the employees at Pulse more down time on the company clock. Not something I would be happy about if I was in charge.

    LOL @ bobby Skullface's video yesterday... dont see why a thousand order bump hasbro said was coming from international affiliates is sketchy...... if the barge can get 5000 orders from e-tailers in the final few days and not be sketchy.. why is 2500 from affiliates sketchy now? Maybe Bobby just didnt see where hasbro said on social media that it was international orders.

    500?

    But we all know very well that the company itself will invest there.)

    With the heavy promotion this thing was getting, he was getting released regardless. I didn’t see the promotion for Cookie Monster to be this heavy.

    Some people simply can't swallow the bitter pill of this figure becoming a reality, that's all. Salt is salt.

    See that I didnt know. But its still not public information. If I said I talked to Joel or Curt and come on here claiming stuff, that doesnt validate my claim. It could be true. It could also be trolling. This is the internet. I tend not to believe stuff unless its officially put out on the company website. And while im not doubting BBTS has 500 orders, you have to aknowledge they are directly competing with Hasbro Pulse (in terms of price) and $575 ($615.24 including tax) sounds a whole lot better than $779 in my opinion. I suppose this gives them a whole year to save until you get charged, but if it was that hard on my finances, I wouldnt be buying it. Im buying it because I can afford it now. I dont believe in paying interest. I would rather live within my means.

    Probably...but we are all expecting you to don a loincloth and a wooden spear and hunt one down in the wild. AND...pics or it didn't happen.

    Edit: don't forget to wear underwear...this is a family website...

    2 weeks? Hell, the “experts” have been complaining about the lack of marketing from the beginning until the last 1000 order bump

    Even if it makes it.....it won't have much demand in the aftermarket. What will I do with the extras I ordered?
