    Umm...I've seen Omega Supreme in my local stores... (Indonesia), and it's not just one box, like, 2 or 3 boxes?

    Wonderful. But that means you were collecting them when you were in your early teens? Kind of like I was with G1 (I was 13 when G1 first hit in '84). With the primary age probably being 5-10, we'll be seeing a lot more of you soon. And as a fan of those lines, that's a good thing.

    Sorry, didn’t mean to dismiss other venues outside of American retail. It also covers the other person siting their local comic shop having Titans figures. My point is when Hasbro considers a once a year flagship item like the Titans figure, it’s primary focus is which demographic it will target hardest. Some kids might get it, it could be sold in a local comic shop or even eBay but these are not the intended markets Hasbro plans to sell them to. Hasbro moves units in the thousands. They don’t deal in small numbers. I imagine the bulk goes to places like Amazon, maybe Walmart, Target, then BBTS and EE and some other toy distributors like Diamond that feed the local small stores. So few will show up somewhere but that’s the only physical exposure Titans will get. If that’s what Hasbro is hoping to sell to kids, it’s ridiculous. 95% of the stock will be sold online. Online toys are targeted for grownups. Can’t comment on Asian markets overseas, my not familiar enough.

    Just to remind the youngsters here ( 90's kids and younger )....G1 didn't die with Sunbow season 3....in fact, plenty of G1 1988 - 1991 should still get their dues in modern limelight.

    BBTS is NOT A BIG BOX BRICK AND MORTAR STORE, how are you missing this entirely? Oh, that's right, it doesn't cater to your rhetoric. Search the forums, you'll see plenty of photographic evidence backing up mine.

    Scorponok is my top want, but man, Doubledealer really excites me. I had the original and I loved him.

    Amen to that. It never really died in the UK. There are loads before you hit Beast Wars.

    That's a massive generalization that is absolutely false.

    I do not care whatsoever about "partforming" in general. I just got Cliffjumper that's been the center of the whining about partforming lately, and he's like a mini-masterpiece... he's absolutely great. I do not recall a single figure that does as such that's been an issue for me... so many figures require their weapons to be able to be set in either modes, and the only part that's "bad", is if you loose a part. But then, when you buy a used figure, it'll suck to be missing the weapons or accessories regardless.

    And I know that he's selling or going to sell very well and that a LOT of the fandom are buying/will buy it and enjoy it.

    Fans wants nice figures. Myself, I want less or no freaking gaps, and proper accessories. Guess what... Cliffjumper is amazing for that. very small gaps and loads of accessories. Heck, I now wish that ALL the deluxe cars would have been his size, so that the non-cars would be larger so that the scaling would be a better match with the tanks and planes, etc.

    I know I saw someone say MW Soundwave... but has anyone yet postulated that DoubleDealer could be a CAD-share for a Leader class Blaster? With how boxy he is, the use of minions as casettes when TONS of recent expressions could have worked as his headmasters... and wasn't g1 Blaster's toy significantly larger than Soundwave's?

    It's going to start with total replacements from the knees down, I'll assume that much.:)

    CAD-share... I like that term. Can we start using this more often?

    The only places I ever saw Titans was Toys R Us and the Fort Drum PX.
