    If people don't get it either way, what's the difference?

    Isn't this just a guilt-trippy way of saying "I got mine?"

    I know it's difficult to understand, especially when local is super duper awesome, but different areas are different. Just because it snows at the North Pole doesn't mean it snows in the Sahara.

    As a scalper re-seller, I figured you would like exclusives.

    How about instead of being snarky you just talk normal and say what you wanna say instead talking like someone who people avoid in a lunchroom

    If I hadn't already pre-ordered G2 Sandstorm, Thrust would be really hard to pass on. I don't tend to get multiples of the same mold though, so 1 conehead is more than enough.

    I really can't get over how cool it is to be getting both Battlechargers in a mainline. I just assumed I would never have them, because I refused to pay the price for the exclusives. They are going to look so good together!

    I didn't though.

    I had to pay secondary prices for several figures I either decided on too late or simply missed out on.

    And there are some I still don't have because of pricing. Which is my choice.

    For worried folks, as an ML collector as well I will say the storm 2 pick, which was also highly anticipated, has come back into stock pretty regularly in my modicum sized town Target and I’ve seen it in person at several others.

    Only when they first released. After a month or two they came in stock and stayed in stock for weeks. They were even available during the current $10 off $50/$25 off $100 deal.

    Boy, such helpful advice to Australia, where these are firstly not available in Target because a certain other country starting with "N A" decided to hog all of the assortments. Additionally, boy, how nice it must be to have the option to go out and not be locked down to a 5 km radius or to, y'know, actually have stores open

    This is a global website and for a lot of folks, literately not an option

    If you missed out on the preorders for Thrust are there any other ways to get it(sans "scalpers)?

    Keep eyeballing the store listing. There will probably be more after it releases, and that’s if they don’t open more preorders.

    Dont pay attention to that jerk, he thinks we all live in the same place and have the same availability of thing. In some of our countries there are not even Targets or Walmart so everytime hasbro decides to make an exclusive to those stores, hello, we have a hole in our collections unless we either have a contact around any of those stores or are willing to spend almost twice the amount online.

    Honestly, with the multi-packs we’ve been seeing in Siege and Earthrise, it would’ve made more sense to release Runamuck and Runabout as a 2-pack. People generally buy both more often than those that only buy one of them.

    ^Look, I'm not going to downplay how hard it is to be a fan of Hasbro's toylines when you live outside of the U.S., I know sometimes it feels like you just can't win and it stinks. But I do feel like you guys really could use the more social interactive part of these global boards to maybe make those contacts as a potential solution for at least some of your exclusive release woes.
