    Wow, THIS is coming up again?

    Not everyone can paint. Even if I had the skills (or, as this posts suggests, I could still learn them), my eyes can't handle the fine details, nor can my hands remain steady enough.

    It's just not happening. Please stop trying to convince me otherwise.

    I'm actually not trying to convince you of anything. If you dont wanna paint you don't have paint. I'm just saying the knowledge isn't any kind of obscure, esoteric information penned by a long lost secret civilization that existed before the dawn of life on earth.

    Anyone can LEARN to paint quite easily if they wanted to try their hand at it. Its silly to think that the knowledge isn't freely available for consumption.

    I... don't think I ever suggested that "learning" was the problem. But I do apologize if I gave that impression. (Recognize, of course, that the comment you responded to here was part of a larger conversation)

    My point has always been (intended to be) "not everyone can do this."

    Not a big deal. I certainly made it more of a bigger deal than it was for sure. I used to paint a lot myself...Warhammer 40K minis but some toxic interaction with fans killed my motivation. Now I just do occasional detail work on figures when needed.

    Walgreens has dropped the ball on preorders. As expected.

    Some people have poor eyesight and/or nerve damage to their hands. I had to stop for a long time before I got my surgery.

    I called Walgreens. They don't have this in their system yet according to their less than helpful customer service. The only exclusive is some Funko Pop item.

    As I've said with all the previous Walgreens exclusives...I've got no worries about Ratchet. Walgreens stores in my area still have some Wreck Gars on the pegs, and have had them for awhile now. The website is pretty good at getting these exclusives in so you can go that route once they hit if your stores aren't getting any Ratchets in.

    You know what the funny thing is. You are totally correct. I ordered Wreck-Gar from the website and it was easy. I bought the Clone pack retail with no problem. What annoys me about this whole thing is that Warden had it on a slide in a public forum so you kinda hope that Hasbro would actually be on Walgreens to do it correctly. But in the end everyone who wants Ratchet will have him.

    I made a Walgreens discussion thread in the toy discussion section, just a heads up.

    But seriously, I dont doubt ill be able to get Ratchet. The thing I was hoping for would be a quick and painless online order, because that way I dont have to go to walgreens all over when people see him. Their website puts exclusives up right when they get them, or like 3-4 weeks after. That and so I could know a time frame of when i'd expect him. But I dont doubt ill be able to get it.

    I just wonder what the people who put the slides together and meant for it to be preorderable at 5:30 think.

    Even physical stores too depending on the product. The Thing and Magick for Marvel Legends went pretty fast but all the older ML exclusives stayed for YEARS. Hell, I could find the Clones two pack at Walgreens all the way up until Wreck Gar was about to roll out.

    Sometimes. They've still got Infamous Iron Man, but only because they limit to one and there's absolutely nothing else to buy to get over the $35 free shipping threshold.

    It would be nice if Ratchet and ML Emma Frost made it onto the site at the same time.

    I also hope that Walgreens exclusive Marvel Legends New Mutants Dani Moonstar won't be too hard to get, especially since fans will be buying three of them at a time because of the bonus Wolfsbane and Karma heads!

    Someone in one of the many Ratchet threads mentioned swapping Ironhide parts onto Ratchet. I am curious, who was it that mentioned this, and if you are here, what parts do you plan to swap?

    Curious to find out too. I don't really see any parts I'd like to swap out personally.
    However, I can see people swapping upcoming Crosshairs' thighs to break up all the white. I might do that myself.
