    I ordered in the second wave I guess? When he went up again at 7:40? I got a confirmation and my status is "item found in stock"

    However before anybody gets jealous I'd say to take that with a grain of salt. I had an fe starscream cancelled after reaching that stage. :/

    So whatcha think the odds are of the listing disappearing for a few days, then coming back at $129.99 or $139.99? This seriously is the Prime situation all over again.

    Do people only want to buy Soundwave to play with or sell?

    Aside from the idea that one day, I'd be at a point of "simply needing a job", I'd hate working at TRU period. Though that young female co-eds do tend to wind up there looking for work too.

    I am 100% keeping mine.

    Now will that be forever? Who knows if years from now I'll still be into TFs, but this will be placed with pride as soon as I get it.

    With MP-10, it came and went in stock multiple times and I didn't get notified. It wasn't until it was up and available on the site for a solid few day stretch before I ever received the email notification.

    I'm going to have my Hasbro one fight my Takara one in a TLC HIAC jello fight, then burn the leftover scraps from the brutality in protest.

    Keeping the cassettes though, those dudes are boss.

    How funny, I just called them there. Seems that none of the stores in the whole northwestern region of Illinois has them at all.

    Just got my order confirmation for Acid Storm, but still waiting on a restock of Soundwave. Apparently Maryland is in the dark as well for in stock masterpieces. went by my local TRU and even the warehouses didn't even have them.

    For anyone who wanted the FOC grimlock & Bruticus set, BBTS has it instock even though it says preorder on main page. So if you just got screwed by TRU like me, you can give your mony to BBTS with no pain-in-the-F%$#ing-ass BS. It took me less than a minute and was completely bullshit free.

    In a better world Toys'R'Us would go under and the exclusives they'd normally get would go to BBTS, target, or walmart. I don't deal with mattycollector or 3A, but From what i've heard of the way they sell their product, this was the same level of frustration.

    I'm going to display mine out of box next to my 20th anniv Prime and maybe let my kids play around with him (and the tapes) gently. I never had the original (no money) so there's a bit of that in there too.

    Actually, I said BBTS should sue their distributors for last-minute short-stocking them and causing them measurable loss in customers, who went to other resellers to buy their products....

    Me suing BBTS is not the same thing as BBTS suing their vendors.


    If you don't know what you're talking about...Don't talk.
