    Hear me, oh great Chakal. I am destroyed. Whipped like a cur. I have failed and in that failure shamed myself beyond redemption.

    I leave you now to begin the solitary exile that honor demands. Farewell, oh wise one. I salute you!

    Wait, they had Combat Megs?? I'm not interested in paying full price for another Siege Megatron, but I'd be in at Ollie's prices. He'd look good on the G2 shelf I'm starting.

    C'mon, why are you doing this? People are proving you wrong and you're fighting facts. How does one even do that? I mean, what do you get out of it?

    I'm not trying to be mean, I'm genuinely frustrated and curious as to why you won't believe something as simple as this.

    It's not healthy nor normal to "question the official narrative" over a toy's misassembled shoulders.

    Of all the things to fight for/over this is what you choose? What are you ever going to do when reality and the real world come slapping you across the face? Because that kind of mentality is what leads to that happening.

    If you're trying to explain away why you got a bum figure (or others did) it happens, it's due to overworked near-slave labor-level workers exhausted beyond belief putting together toys with the same quality of instructions we get in the box. It's a mistake that was caught on some production runs.

    That's it.

    I just don't understand this antagonistic "I've got to fight" thing people have lately. Is life really that boring and pathetic? FFS, people.

    GetGo gets all the respeck on its name. That Advantage Pay saves me a ton in gas each month. I'll drive out of my way to find one, actually. (Their food is pretty doggone good, too. Not quite Sheetz, but solidly good.)

    They had a ton of them at that particular store.

    I spoke to the girl at my local Ollie's tonight while I was there and she said someone came in earlier in the day and bought a ton of Studio Series stuff, like a bulk purchase. I wonder if that's why there were no Roadbuster or Cliffjumper?

    Yikes, not to keep the Galvatron shoulder train going but I got one with the misassembled shoulder, and I was dumb enough to try to remove the purple mud spots with nail polish and it started eating through the plastic. But, fixed that with a few rounds of sandpaper, and for the shoulders... I twist them up the correct way and display my Galvatron with the silver buttons showing.

    Why? Because he's still a damn good figure despite. I think we can agree on that, it's still the best Galvatron from Hasbro.

    Enough with the back and forth already.
    Let's not derail this thread.
    1. Galvatron is good whichever way you choose.
    There is no right or wrong here
    All Hasbro's fault.
    2. Wawa/Sheetz/Getgo.
    All probably good.
    Only seen wawa in my travels.

    Time to get back to sightings now.
    And helping each other out.

    In my virtual travels I've seen the movie/classified figures at a Walmart.
    Off the top of my head, I couldn't tell you where.

    For those hitting up Walgreen's for the kingdom red alert that is not physically out yet,
    Hasbro pulse has available right now.

    For those looking for kingdom rodimus,
    Amazon has him directly at new retail right now.

    Don't know how long either will last.

    “At retail” being the 84.99 price at Amazon. Looks like it’s available to shop Sept 5-8 right now.
    Hit your Walmart’s where “at retail” means $79.97. :D 
    And Rodimus is glorious and so worth it. And I haven’t even unpacked the trailer yet.

    You’re not exaggerating, Rodimus really is that good and he’s instantly the definitive retail version made to date. Gotta give props to Hasbro.

    I corrected.
    NEW retail.
    I guess Walmart managed to buy at old wholesale prices.

    Rodimus definitely is glorious.
