    How funny it would be to return it and you gave them the reason that you got a Hubcap figure instead of Rotorstorm. LOL!

    Hubcap is still pretty widely available, including on Pulse and BBTS. Rotorstorm is out of stock most places.

    Ridiculous, but I'd be lying if I said the thought never crossed my mind. :D

    Lucky, lol.

    I ended up adding Hubcap to my POL on BBTS.

    I started really appreciating that Cliffjumper mold a lot more in recent weeks, lol. Hubcap will be added to the Wrecker ranks, and I suppose I can also pair him with his best mate Jackpot when that figure comes out next spring.

    He's just so incomplete and...ugly. Guess sometimes it's the weird ones that sell.

    EDIT: Are they serious, right now??

    Incomplete and ugly? Well to each their own I guess, I love he looks great!

    But not $47 great. His aftermarket prices are a bit much. The Hubcap "trick" made me quite happy.

    I was just a huge wreckers fan. Rotorstorm was a must. Hope someday I can get them all in generations line.

    Amazon is finally shipping the Scorpina/Aisha Lightning Collection 2 pack

    Dlx cyberverse slag is up for order, but not quite in stock. The two pack with Megatron version is pretty bad, so here's hoping this guy is better.

    I'd never take Amazon prices as an accurate gauge of the aftermarket. eBay prices tend to be a better guide. Always amazed how people don't know how to comparison shop on the interwebs.

    weirdest part is amazon *shouldnt* have rotorstorm. Theyre not considered a fan channel retailer. Thats likely why the price is higher. They didnt get them from Hasbro.

    Waspinator still says it'll be delivered tomorrow, but since it hasn't shipped and I haven't been charged for it, I'm thinking this won't be the case.

    I know how to comparison shop, but I'm talking about Amazon prices on the Amazon thread. I mean the whole reason he isn't worth the $47 price Amazon lists is because of what goes for on eBay.

    Thats because Amazon never got Rotorstorm, but Amazon 3rd party sellers posted it on Amazon.

    You're absolutely certain you haven't been charged? I'd check both the pending and your history in your bank account/credit card account/whatever method you used just to be sure they haven't actually processed the payment when you weren't looking.

    Interesting. My bad. I guess it's like how BBTS gets walmart exclusives.

    Quite, the Chase app is quite good about keeping me informed of charges. I can't see any tracking info at all on Amazon on PC for the order and using the Amazon App, it's dropped off the delivery estimate section and looking up the order that way, still says arriving tomorrow by 10 PM, despite still only being in the ordered phase of the ordering process.

    I'm expecting another delayed e-mail. I can wait, I just don't want it to be cancelled (same with Tigatron).
