    Youre being paranoid. It is a mass retail line. That's like questioning if air is still going to be breathable tomorrow and hyperventilating. Also, you're comparing TakTom's release of a product on collector focused sites to Hasbro's which will be available at Walmart. The same people causing preorders to sell out are largely seperate from those who buy in stores.

    You are right! Just someone who has been dreaming of this since 2007 would want that dream guaranteed in hands.

    Well no worries. We will have him. We survived a 10 year wait, I'm sure we can survive a bit longer

    Well I guess I can relax now. Just that last Monday I got an email from the store saying they will post up preorders that day. But I've been waiting since then and nothing. But now I got an email from them again saying they are not ready yet, might take a bit now. So now I know. I guess since I was told on Monday they will post preorders right away that I was ready to preorder. But now that I know they are doing it later, it's just waiting till that comes.

    My biggest concern with retail stores have always been scalpers. I can never find a good figure in my parts, and that's always the worse part about the hunt when I know someone else bought out a whole case lol

    Yeah, but you know both TT and Hasbro are doing cartwheels that they knocked it out of the park this time,
    so for those that may or may not miss out this time, I'm sure they'll restock for one, and probably do a slightly tan
    repaint of Blackout as "Grindor" sometime in the near future...

    Wonder if I should wait for an mpm of Blackout, or wait for Wei Jiang to mod it, upscale it, and scorponok too...hmmm..

    Is it me, or does barricade's head look off?
    I'm not sure what is going on with that face.

    I told myself to hold out on the mainline and just collect the MPMs since how fast they seem to be pumping them out. I certainly hope an MPM Blackout gets made eventually.

    And Barricade's face is sculpted correctly but painted wrong.

    I find it odd that the images of Brawl and Megatron were the first ones to be leaked, even though they are coming in a later wave.

    Also does "April" mean April 1st or April 30th? :confused:
