    I'm surprised they actually verified it, all the swaps I tend to see are so laughable. I really hate people that do these sorts of things, it makes us adult collectors look bad.

    I don't have a problem swapping a truly defective figure with a good one, even if it's from a different store since the retailers have mechanisms in place to return those items to the manufacturer (though the bigger problem is when places like Walmart will just put it back on the shelf).

    Buying up the hard to find/popular figures at retail and then scalping though is a shitty thing to do plain and simple. You want to be a toy retailer, set up shop and get an account with Hasbro as a distributor.

    Anyway, for those who may have missed out, the Willowbrook TRU suddenly got a slightly beat up, but apparently sealed Devastator. I didn't think to check the price.

    For the record, I don't and have never done that. Just in case you're pointing fingers.

    People all have different values and morals. That's why I put my disclaimer in when I first suggested the solution. Glad to see that we are keeping the conversations civil. This would have erupted into a flame war so fast on a normal thread.

    In sightings note, nothing at Ross and Marshalls except for tons of Onslaught & Scattershots.

    I'm guessing TRU is the only place stocking Titan Masters so far?

    I went to Garland Tru and so far according the nice young lady there only Mesquite Tru showed to have Fort Max in stock in DFW, but when she called they didn't have any.

    Aw damnit... That's the one I was going to go to tomorrow to check out. >_<

    Didn't see any Titans Returns there at all last week when I went. Or the Target nearby. You see any?

    Edit: Eh went back a few pages (been a long time since I hunted physical stores so haven't checked this thread in a very, very long time) and echoing Matt_M from the other day... Literally nothing new in NW Austin.

    No problem, I didn't see the Fort Max though. Where was he hiding?
