    And to think that I half-expected these two to shelf warm...

    Wouldn't surprise me to see them at Ross or Marshals a year from now.

    Man I really didn't think they'd be this hard to find. And yeah, the $50 price tag online is ridiculous (even the $35 is not much better). Last time I saw Hun-Gurrr was Feb 18th. I know restocks are coming in a month or two form now but damn, this is pretty awful. I thought surely you all would at least see some Eltia-1's. Nope...

    Despite the fact I own both, this is pretty frustrating. They're cool toys and I want fellow TF collectors to share in their glory (plus I want to see if someone else think Elita-1's combiner head is a pain to put back into her chest too). I'm not someone who is proud to say, "I have them before anyone else. In your face!" I want people to have them. I want people to talk about them. It's one of the reasons I hate exclusives because there's really no reason for them other than that a retailer or a convention paid for them. And they're in limited quantities so not everyone gets to have one. Plus if you miss them, you gotta pay more money. Cool. Boy I just LOVE doing that! *Sigh* The only thing I find more frustrating than not having the money for a toy is having the money for a toy and you just can't find it.

    I'm going to stop writing this now because I sound like I'm having a midlife crisis.

    I want a Ferrari.

    Although I do not work in the toy department, a can verify that the Voyagers and Deluxes are showing a “DC OUT” when you try to order them, with a status of non replenish and no ETA. This along with the recent reset adding the studio series completely left out the leader class, while leaving a spot for potp leaders. I don’t know what the hell is going on, but we better get flooded with the remainder of Abominus body parts at some point, this is getting worry some.

    That's not surprising. Out here, most stores dropped leaders after, if not during, Combiner Wars. The situation with voyagers is looking very similar. All that's really being stocked consistently is PrimeMasters.

    It's puzzling because the economy is supposed to be doing so well. What's with the supply chain issues that keep the online shops in perpetual preorder mode? What's with the "oh me oh my retail price so 'spensive" at shows? I mean, to hear people talk, we know it's not customers or Hasbro or retailers at fault so where are the mystery problems coming from?

    I almost wonder if Walmart is dropping Leader and Voyager POTP in order to make a shelf spot for Predaking, now that TRU won't be selling it.

    More like Walmart is simply dropping the ball.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one frustrated by the lack of Wave 2 stuff.

    So, has this wave come and gone already? Looks like he is only available for near $50 from third party sellers...
