    You know what that kind of puts sdcc metro into perspective.

    Is an extra gun, some chrome and some mini figs worth the extra cost? Maybe to some but the money saved is almost halfway to a MP SW!

    I wouldn't feel bad about the password thing. I'm sure they'll be reloading the store in waves.


    I was running a Chrome extension to check the search results page (every 5 seconds) for any changes using the terms "metroplex", "angry birds", and "conclusion".

    I was on the site the moment those items went live. Metroplex didn't even last 4 minutes. The GI Joe set never surfaced.

    PrimeTarget, you are wise. I'm not even into it for the chrome, just the gun and mini-figs, and I really just want the gun. *whew* Now I'm glad my aging, Swiss-cheese brain was slow on the draw.

    Now that Shockwave set is looking good- :gen069:  SOMEBODY STOP ME!

    I had metroplex and boba fett in my cart among others and chrome was getting stuck on a certain page in checkout, switched to firefox and lost those figs but got everything else.

    Who was there.. Soundwave? If he's already sold out I'm going to be pretty upset, I need to get one for a friend and I dont have the time to keep running around looking for these things.

    Plus by the time they ever reach the stores, this B1G1 50%Off deal will be gone and ill have to pay full price for my acid storm

    Yes, Soundwave was there. My guess is they sold to evil scalper guy that lives at the enterance.

    Hey matticus prime, I'll try and look for them when I can and if I find a store with some I'll send you a PM or something since I assume we're somewhat close. But if I get there and buy one I won't be able to pick another one up for you because of the limit

    Great. Well I'll continue to look anyway. It can't hurt... I'm really surprised there's no Acid Storm though, you'd think he'd start shelfwarming by now if SW was there

    There are a few of us in the area that look out for each other. I live in the Warrenville area but I am moving up the road to Geneva.

    I might be even more mad since I was told they had none. As in "We didn't get any in".

    I would also assume that evil scalper guy has those as well.

    I live by elston and diversey and called every TRU within a 50 mile radius today starting at 10am. Twice they said only got 2 figures and already sold out. Just so crazy how hard to get this figure. But the worst part is people are getting them to sell!

    I'm on the lookout for Soundwave too, and I'm in the Naperville/Aurora area. I know if I see any, I'm going to pick up as many as possible up to 4, lol. One for me, one for a friend, one for Matticus, and one for Soundwave 86 who may be dead...

    Then anything after goes out to the other board members once I get them, lol.
