    Yeah, last year there were same day restocks on the single pack joes, and brutty. They did pepper them out over the course of a week, but we didn't go 5 days without hearing anything.

    Why did they shut down the other forum we were at? I was wondering what happened

    Members went way off talking about the HTS staff in ways they shouldn't have.

    Yes, and some of them insist on keeping that nonsense in their sigs.

    Maybe they'll start restocking as soon as they start shipping the ones that were purchased first

    That seems to be the reasonable answer for why there has not been a single change on-the-site yet.

    Does HTS use FedEx? I got a delivery notice yesterday and I couldnt think of anything incoming except for my Thunderbolt set. Of course it shows as not shipped yet on the site......

    Had a weird dream last night where I could order HTS exclusives with my meal at poolside at a fancy hotel.

    Yes they do ... My Shockwave lab was shipped via FedEx, so that could be VERY good news!

    Guys, if there is to be another instance where we have to come in here and edit off topic posts, this thread will be closed and this time we will NOT allow another similar thread to be open.

    If there is an issue with a post, use the report post function. Public threads are not used to question moderation of a thread nor is it used to continually post off topic subjects, especially since this is the second time the subject of this thread has been allowed to remain open.

    To keep in mind why we want this to remain open, here are some pics from Hyperoptic.

    What I love is the ages 5 and up on this thing. LOL. My son is almost 5, and this thing is almost as tall as he is!

    ^ Very nice. Hopefully my SDCC Metroplex arrives without a hitch and with no QC issues. That once instance of him arriving with wheels missing on one leg makes me a little paranoid.

    Guys as fun as it is to joke around, please remember the reason why we are here, although the last thread was a blast and personally we had alot of laughs, it deviated off topic and the mods closed it. Lets not let this thread be closed as it is a useful tool to keep ourselves informed on any new information that we may get in these exclusives that we are waiting for. Its only a couple more days, I think that as grown men that collect very expensive figures we can be mature enough to stay focused on those shiny thighs, overpriced cards, or slab of carbonite..."tabula rasa"

    Damn, such a kick ass figure. Hopefully I can find the regular version in stores when it's released. This version is slightly too much imo and I don't like the chrome. Even the packaging is boss.

    So glad I don't think metroplex looks good. Thought I did. But seeing it in person turned me off. Good thing too, because I have no place for it, though it fighting my Matty classics voltron would have been cool. Then bring in the 18" gipsy danger and that's one hell of a robot three way.
