    I checked the thread. They are afraid of scalpers.

    Being that I live in Central FL it is littered with scalpers who will buy up all the product in the area and sell on Mercari until the next shipments come, not many collectors get a chance to nab these right away. Also, afraid is the wrong word, more like dont want to give them info and just the genuine collectors. That was the reasoning behind it.

    So the info is central Florida. The scalpers there are already on the hunt now. The blacking out is still BIZARRE

    Why is that a focus? The poster was kind enough to share that the figures were at retail in Florida. So what if the info is blacked out?

    I'm just happy that these will start seeing wider distribution in the coming weeks and don't really give a hoot about what store in Florida they were found in, just that they were found.

    that and for the love of god leave their other purchases out the discussion. Dude was just trying to be a good guy and let everyone know they’re out and the trolls have to come out and go through his receipt and make assumptions of his personal life which lead him to say he doesn’t want to contribute to the fandom online anymore. That’s just depressing and I can relate to how he feels with a lot that’s gone on with people on this site lately

    Besides, anyone who makes things even a little more difficult for scumbag scalpers is to be commended and given copious amounts of candy.

    Just a quick head's up, I just had my Scavenger delivered by Amazon (in Illinois).

    ... now I just have to figure out how to get it to transform without breaking it, holy cow.

    Yes it did. So please refrain from going further off topic. The user has every right to black things out on their receipt as receipts are personal and may contain info they don't want others seeing for any given reason.

    If I don\'t see an \"enemy scrotum\" accessory included with either scrapper or overload, I\'m setting fire to Hasbro HQ
