Disclaimer: Please don't take this as a personal offense if this happened to you before. I'm seriously just curious. Over the past few years, I've observed a frequent pattern with new toy sightings: 1) Someone reports seeing a new figure at retail, with photographic evidence and all. 2) Someone else responds with a variantion of "Saw this at my local Walmart last week. Didn't think it was news." Snarky responses along the lines of "But you didn't report it. So what?" are met with accusations of being a dick, a smartass or whatever. Sometimes with a kneejerk "Apologies if I don't keep track of every single figure and whether it has been found before or not!" Now I know the opposite also happens (someone reporting a figure as news even though it has been reported before), but in those cases people are generally more open to corrections ("please delete if old" or "sorry, my bad"). The "saw it before, didn't report it" people seem to be a lot more aggressive and often take criticism of their behavior as a personal offense. Now I know some do it in a slightly guilt-ridden manner ("Whoops.... saw this last week but didn't know it hadn't been reported before!"), but some folks truly come across as braggarts who seem to think that claiming first dibs after the fact will somehow gain them... something. Please don't get me wrong. I'm seriously not expecting everyone to keep track of every single figure and whether it has been found at retail or not (even though I do in this thread, and everyone is invited to use it for reference if necessary, I don't consider this an obligation). I honestly just want to understand this mentality. Sure, if you've accidentally missed the opportunity to get a news credit (and seriously, it's not that amazing really) by failing to recognize a new release for what it is, you want to express your frustration. But what does anyone seriously expect to gain from unapologetically proclaiming that they've seen a figure at retail earlier than the first reported sighting? Is anyone expecting the TFW2005 staff to reassign a news credit to the "saw this first" guy? The most amusing variation of this happened a while ago when this happened in a thread about new sightings in Russia. As someone else said: "Wow, even the Russians have that 'seen this before' guy!" Another thing I don't understand is why people only post their first sighting of a figure in their local sightings thread instead of making it more widely known in the News & Rumors forum. Don't you want more people to know that the figure is out in the wild? No wonder people keep asking in the sightings threads if anyone has seen a new figure yet when they don't expect those to be reported on the main page.
