    If it gives more fans the opportunity to pick up the exclusives I'm all for quantity limits. Wish they would have done that in the past!

    Definitely not new. In fact, several years ago, trying to order too many would get your order cancelled before HTS prevented the order from going through if too many were in your cart.

    Honestly I think the limit was in effect the last few years. That's why a week or two after they go up a small amount of stock would become available due to cancelled duplicate orders or payments not going through.

    This is so depressing. None of the items have a high resale value. Previous years, I would sell these and the profits would fund my purchases for the rest of the year.

    This was a funny post, if only because your display name is "Matty". I imagine it said with some amount of eye narrowing and a dry tone.

    No, it's not new. Item limits have been attached to the Hasbro comic con exclusives for many years now.

    Oooh, gotcha. Neat.
    Yikes. It's hard to believe that many people are buying these. But I guess it's an event (for those that didn't go to SDCC directly).

    yep, economy + hasbro lost their touch on exclusive designs/offerings + lot of people exited the scene cuz got tired of the rat race + oh ya economy + degrading quality and higher prices + knockoffs and third party are better than hasbro + lol...

    hasbro did it to themselves

    Didn't you feel bad about locking someone else out? :confused:  I know I feel bad about stuff like that. I try to sell only stuff I buy to own, not stuff I buy to sell - with the exception of TCC5.0, cause that set was made to order anyway. :p

    I am just ranting. All I want is the gi Joe set but they had to go and put transformers stickers and ruin everything. Buying cobra stickers will set me back another 30-40 dollars.

    Sure, sure, but I feel like we're all hanging out here anyway, so SOME off-topic topic should be brought up to while away the time? :D 

    EDIT: For example, we can talk about the nice sig you have! :thumb  (though, I've gotta say, shocked Roddy is a strange thing to see)
