    The July 25th date appears to be the shipping date.

    Bodes well for Road Rage, then.

    Willing to bet Worlds Collide and Origins Bee are coming this week/next week. Possibly MPM BB Optimus too. I'm kind of doubtful on Road Rage since the listing said October/November for their release date.

    Wouldn't stop them for putting up a preorder. Some of the LEGO stuff that's gone up isn't releasing until August.

    The Buzzworthy stuff would make a great fit for this event, being a Target exclusive. So July 25th seems as good a guess as any.

    I ordered him this morning.  I had gotten my red card last year so no coupon to use. (I used my $40 off of $40 coupon I got last year to buy Double Dealer tho so I still call that a win).

    The fact this listing has been live for well over 6 hours now and people are still able to put in preorders is a good sign. Target has had some issues in the past, but if those are sorted out it's a lot of people right now getting who've been able to get this guy and we're not even in the "full" availability.

    I think the level of interest in this toy is far, far less than previous offerings.

    See, people say that...but then some of those same people were gnashing their teeth about exclusives and how they always sell out too quick because of scalpers. Well, this one hasn't yet.

    The recent Cobra Island restocks were up for hours as well, definitely a good sign that production is mostly back to normal after last year

    I'm not following you. Scalpers will buy the toys that are most in demand. Why would scalpers buy this one if the perceived demand is low?

    I mean, this has about the same appeal as the FOX Kids repaint of Dinobot - and even he would propbably sell faster due to the fact he has a recognizable name.
