    What a complete waste of time. Sat there, logged in, CC info saved and correct, F5-ing on the page every few seconds, saw Bruticus come up, hit Buy, Checkout...and it just kept sitting there. I see on the forums here that everyone else is buying, buying, buying, and I'm just waiting for the Checkout to complete.
    Minutes later, the screen refreshes, and says the product in my cart is sold out.
    What utter bullshit.

    Nice, in US, you will pay almost 100$ for Bruticus, but many of buyers take more then one piece to make profit on eBay.

    True, which one will be cheaper though...the hypothetical Takara version or SDCC Bruticus now available only on eBay?

    Somebody on Twitter posted that the exclusives were up, I just hopped on and ordered a Bruticus. Had no idea they'd go this quickly.

    Don't really mind paying the extra money, considering deluxes are $15 now, gas prices are high, and New York sales tax being what it is.

    Individually they are a bit pants I'm only interested in Swindle and Brawl the other 3 look substandard to me.

    And it does not help that it's so ugly it make Abominus look like a quality product.

    Either way, a hypothetical Takara release will probably cost an arm (and possibly a leg).

    One per household. You can't buy more than one on HTS.

    Glad to see how well Bruticus is selling. Hopefully this means more combiners in the near future.

    Aren't there ways around this? I already read of someone buying 3 Cliffjumpers.

    Um...wow. That was fast. Good thing I stopped caring about the SDCC version of Bruticus once they showed the G2 version and once I got my Amazon preorder in.

    As far as people who complained about the price though, I think Cliffjumper is the real scam. That sucker is about $35 after tax and shipping for 1 deluxe! I know I've paid more than that on a TFCC exclusive, but still $10 in shipping and tax is really bad for 1 deluxe.

    I've been obsessively refreshing HTS and TFW and Seibertron while hyped up on caffeine, I finally sleep and of COURSE the exclusives go up while I'm asleep. Just an hour before I woke up, too. God dammit. Time to trawl ebay...

    For one item, yeah. But buy a couple of items and it evens out. Since Bruticus and the Shockwave HISS sold out though, I'm in no hurry or mood to order Zombie Cliff. Yay, me???
