    Waiting's not the issue. We're waiting for Matty's, but we know what day and time to wait for. Being a prisoner chained to the computer desk for a week because you aren't told when they're coming is the problem. No apologists necessary...

    No More Moping People........ive had a lot of fun. I enjoy the rush and hopefully satisfaction of getting what I am looking for but shit if we can drop 180 plus we can drop 220.... this, what we do here is different then just slumming and going to ebay its more then that. this is what fandom is built on.... Till All Are One!

    Not lagging here and I don't think the site's ever going to lag, unless the problem's with your internet collection. The big change last year was that, a short time before the exclusives went up, they turned some switch on the server that made it lightning-fast. And check-out for everything went lightning fast. That admittedly was a huge improvement over previous years, where it took up to a half hour to get through checkout and gave you tons of errors. That rapid-fire speed doesn't seem to have waned at all since then, so it seems like it was a permanent change.

    Not going to lie, if I see another $225 shipped Dinobot set on Ebay I'm jumping on it.

    Never had the toy. My dad handed down almost an entire collection of the comics when I was a kid.

    I still kinda resent Parker bros for sitting on the rights all these years.

    AWwww YEAH! I went to lunch and a buddy here on the boards told me that our local TRU got in MP Sunstorm. So, I went over and got the last (only?) 2 with the BOGO deal! Also, bagged two 6" SW Black Series Biker Scout sets. AND I still made it back without missing the SDCC stuff. Now....back to waiting.

    the speed changes around :30 and :00 every hour.... because presumably, everyone is hitting it big time hoping that that 30 minute window is "the one" when it goes live.

    I'm on a horrible connection at workd (sub 5Mb), and at home I hit over 90Mb at times. At both locations, I experience the same issues at the mentioned times.

    My local TRU is supposed to get Prowl tomorrow, so I am hoping to combine him with Sunstorm.
