    yeah, amazon can be hit or miss with the packing sometimes...but they usually get stuff in quicker than pulse or bbts

    as for Studio Series adding the animation movie characters...well it does allow them to do whatever they want for future lines and not be chained down to G1 as those characters can be shuttled over to Studio (and it pretty much allows them to add any G1 character from the toons if they grandfather them in)...

    Hasbro Pulse doesn't have any release dates for any of the Studio Series.

    Walmart preorder experience is very bad. They cancelled my preorders many times.

    Good news is, I got 2 SS Scourges. Bad news is, I should've been allowed to buy 3 :mad:

    Just got my Thrust order in. Though, with how much more available the first Seeker set is, I really think Thrust should have been part of a 3 Conehead Seeker set that was a Target exclusive. It would have been $90, but it would be a hell of a lot less than the current going prices for the conehead set which was terribly underproduced.

    I sure hope it's a typo when they say Jazz is 4.5". That's awfully small.

    I personally don't care what each "line" means or does. If I see a figure I like of a character I have interest in, I buy it. So SS has room for all in my heart, and hopefully after Kingdom there will really be multiple generations in Generations.

    As someone who cancelled their Airwave and is on the verge of cancelling Overload...they have great customer service but even the best customer service can't save your figures from going in to permanent backorder.

    Yep. I got all six SS86 for less than $150, including tax. Hard to beat that.

    I don't think Firebolt as he was released in Siege as Firedrive. Only Recoil and Haywire as those 2 haven't really had a recent release.

    Just got Thrust. I didn't feel the need to get Runabout until I see Runamuck on shelves. As for SS86, I'll wait until I see them in person.
