    "The accused scalper"...makes it sound like you fingered a wanted felon. I remember walking into a TRU last year and they had DOZENS of cases of Masterpiece Prime. No one cared. I ended up buying 4 of them. Guess it's good I wasn't in your store or I might have been attacked in the parking lot.

    I would never buy anything from TRU if I could help it. It is too bad this is an exclusive and you have no choice but there or scalpers. My last purchase from TRU was MP prime for the same reason.

    Start up a boycott and more will join you I'm sure, but yet here you are on some boards complaining about people complaining.

    It not that he thinks that people have no power to effect change, because they do. It's that we fans don't have the WILLPOWER to effect change.

    It's basically his MO. He brought up suing BBTS when they missed their ETA for the Springer and Blitz.

    Not sure if news, but a friend of mine was able to locate Acid Storm on a store shelf (Vernon Hills, IL) . It looks like Soundwave was put out earlier this week and sold out.

    I was first batch, got a "backordered" confirmation. Which is not really much better than not getting anything at all.

    That must've been a hell of a walk to your kitchen. Did you have to fight a tiger or something?

    Yep. I'll have her take one.
