    Just FYI for anyone who placed a high dollar order (mine was $300+). I just called for shits and giggles and there was hold on it. So if you want your goodies quicker I'd recommend a quick call to CS.

    Judging by how long some of these have lingered on HTS, it appears that Hasbro had higher production runs on these "exclusive" figures. Granted, this years exclusives aren't as appealing as the previous years were, but most of these would be sold out by now; I know many buy these for their exclusivity/rarity/second market value but not sure how rare or how much they will fetch with ebay now flooded...I'm glad that many got to purchase the item(s) they wanted to get without having to resort to ebay, hopefully this is a positive trend and HTS will keep making improvements...for those of us who may have missed out on the now sold out items...the restocks are uncoming, unfortunately unlike yesterday's annouced sale...these we will have to patiently wait for to come back in stock.

    Didn't care for anything to buy that I wanted or "collectible" enough to make a buck off of this year.

    Clicked on it for shits and giggles today and was pleasantly surprised to find the majority of it still available.

    That is good to see, maybe more people can get their hands on it and not waste a day of their lives in the future.

    I would've considered that Combiner Hunters set, but not for $75. Jesus Christ.

    Yeah I could've sworn the original price was supposed to be $65.

    Doesn't make it any better there's tax and shipping. Spendy little deluxes.

    Oh man, that's what I'm used to.

    I'd think it's also bc these past 2 years' exclusives are less desirable? Could be wrong with actual stock numbers.....

    I'm shocked all the TF and Joes are still in shock.

    For me personally, this and last year, I've had zero desire for any of the exclusives (which is fine with me). From 2007 to 2013 I've always really wanted some TF exclusive. Most desirable were the GI Joe/TF crossovers.

    The combiner Hunters was my favorite set that I bought this year at SDCC. Pricy? Yes! But the set is BEAUTIFUL a and cool to collect the 4 different comics that went with the set (one exclusive cover for each character and the Combiner Hunters special

    Yeah man. They bring it down a bit, I'll bite, but that's just too rich for me right now.

    I thought the Knights of Unicron set was too high last year (I know, sacrilegious, but that set was too batshit insane not for me to want), but managed to get it cheaper and with free shipping due to some kind of coupon code glitch, and that was certainly worth it, but this I'll probably have to pass on.

    Just called HTS customer service to follow up on my order and there was indeed a hold (same deal as last year) on my order so after giving them some information to verify my order they are releasing it to go to the warehouse.

    All in all besides a few minor glitches this year went pretty smoothly, much better than the last few years. I hope it's the same system next time, with an announced date ahead of time. I think the upcoming Takara Devy as well as the recent domestic version most certainly hurt the sales of the SDCC one. Unlike the chrome thighs on Metroplex who really was clamoring for purple chrome on Devy?

    As for the KREO Class of 85 I'm surprised that one isn't gone yet. The first one sold out quickly and maybe they made more this year? Still hoping for a "Class of 1986" next year with many of the movie characters (Galvatron, Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, Unicron, etc.) as I don't collect the individual/blind pack Kreons.

    Marvel is looking pretty strong (perhaps due to the movies) with almost complete sell out - that Ant Man/Giant Man set keeps shrinking and expanding out of view :) . Star Wars and Magic fans still prove to be quite rabid but GI JOE looks to be sadly fading.

    I guess the high price ($149.99) makes it too hard to flip but I thought this would have done well with the upcoming movie later this year. If this figure was released before Botcon 2014 when Samantha Newark was a guest I might have picked one up to get signed but otherwise I had no interest.
