    Oh I was talking about the newer releases being mentioned.
    Basically everything since krang.

    I never saw the ones you posted either lol.
    I saw the disguised set twice.

    I wish they would have put ultimate casey up, or the shadow master 2 pack. If I saw this foot soldier in store I'd probably impulse buy it but those movie figs are the ones I want the most right now.

    I'm holding out hope that they do. I feel that's the only way I'll see them. I've never seen any super shredder or movie two pack in store. That's between 4 local stores.

    And I get that, which is why I wonder how he "knows" it's random shoppers making impulse buys and not just collectors/scalpers?

    Simply, he can't know. Not unless they perform random surveys which they likely so not.

    Found someone’s hidden Chrome Dome at my Target today. Sorry to that person, but he’s mine now. I never saw the episode with him, but the original figure was one I liked. He’s huge! Feels like these releases are getting easier to obtain, or the characters aren’t as popular.

    lol. We only have combined anecdotal evidence that means jack shit. He has hard sales figures in front of him. I mean, maybe he knows more than us about distribution? Jfc.

    Have faith. I'm feeling like we may see numbers like the first wave. :)  I understand though, it's always the best feeling of having something secured.

    If I was in the states I'd be less worried, Neca, Star Wars BS, McF and anything not ML, Tformers and Lego don't make it to Korea from what I've seen so far

    Can always wait for S7 to do their version of Genghis Frog, and I can't imagine they won't find some excuse to do the rest even though they weren't in the vintage toyline, because if you already have the mold why wouldn't you?

    Brings back memories…I think the only one of those my brother had was Rat King, though…and maybe the chef.

    This actually completes my set of the 1990 basic figure collection. I have '91 complete as well, and just need an April, Foot Soldier, Leatherhead and Krang to round out the '88 and '89 series. And then onto '92, which it really gets pricey and harder to find.

    Did anyone ever try one of those Coraline coats on April? I've seen a bunch of Coralines at my Targets.
