    So it appears the silly preorder embargo for the Siege wave 4 Battle Masters and the wave 5 Micromasters has ended.

    So I got the official European version of the Fan Vote Battle 3-pack from Amazon Germany, and... it comes in a US box with some stickers on it, giving it an EAN barcode and a language-neutral "8+" age recommendation. Huh.

    Any speculation for why the preorders got pulled for Earthrise with the big retailers? Are we expecting Earthrise to be another case where a new line gets a few cases out to each store before the holidays?

    I’m talking Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target.

    BBTS is what I’d regard as a specialty retailer.

    The mass retailers had Earthrise preorders and stopped taking them.

    Everyone who isn’t primarily a toy or hobby store stopped taking preorders. I can generally only speculate that’s either because they don’t want too much stuff dangling into the new year (possibly for tax purposes) or because they plan to ship a limited quantity much sooner than advertised and want to take it from there.

    So, do you mind if I ask where you found both of these fellas in Ohio? I'd like to get them both when I am out and about on Friday with my 3 month Oncology appointment. Thanks for the information.

    If you had clicked the links DualDiac84 provided, you'd have seen that it was actually David Willis who found them, specifically at Packrat Comics in Hilliard. :)

    Gotcha.

    While I do consider myself fairly technically sound... I really dislike a lot of social media (I've got two wonderful kids who are 19 and 17 years of age and they both have driven me to near insanity with their level of immersion into ALL of social media and yet they still fail to grasp how powerful the tool is that they hold in their hands). As such I don't really do Twitter or Instagram of Snapchat so I didn't notice the two links.
    Thank youfor bringing the links to my attention. Sorry for cluttering up the thread.
