    I wonder if they are destined for Ross and TJ Maxx. I’m not going to risk not getting them, but pretty sure if I were a patient man, I’d be able to secure the wave at less than msrp.

    Today I learned about two new Cobra figures. Thanks for the info and I think that SE does lend himself to those designs. Good luck.

    Well let me spin it in another perspective. Let's say you buy a TV and the picture quality doesn't meet your standards, would you return it? How about a vaccuum cleaner you buy that doesn't suck, would you return that?

    I would argue functionality is the difference. If you open a figure and it’s a floppy mess, can’t stand or hold its weapons, it doesn’t function as intended and there shouldn’t be an issue with returning it. If you simply don’t like it after opening it, that’s personal regret not an issue of functionality of the toy. If the store wants to accept or reject your return for spite, that’s their call.

    So... you buy a game, play it for the two to three days you need to finish it, then return it for a full refund?

    ... huh.

    I have no idea how it works. I was shocked to learn that they apparently do.

    In someplaces they did.

    Some collectors are very particular about paint apps, some apps you can't see until you open it, if the apps are unsatisfactory, the collector will return the figure for a refund and try again, I've seen collectors get dogged on social media for doing this, I personally don't care and have done the same thing myself on rare occasions

    I’m ready for the whole zoo. Crocodiles, falcons, bald eagles, German shepherds, parrots, lynx, cobras, mutts, manta rays, barracudas, vultures, etc. :)

    bad paint apps IMO is certainly a product defect; if any product is defective return it and try again.

    I like this figure because he looks very "Sunbow-like" but he's not a character that I have any strong memories about. As a matter of fact there are problem like 10 other characters I'd have preferred.
