    I wish I had looked at their social media, earlier. I wouldn't have even bothered trying.

    Yeah, I downloaded the app on Tuesday and had mixed feelings and then deleted it. I didn’t even put my credit card info in. I knew this was going to be a big screw job. Dealing with SDCC/Pulse it bad enough. Also I saw that the light blue Cobra Commander they showed was a sales sample. The dark blue was was the one for sale.

    I like both colors. The 15.00 credit they gave out didn’t hurt either.

    ^The MOTU Origins is starting as a Wally world exclusive initially and then will be released later through other retailers right?

    If not, that stinks big time.

    And you sir are a Joe fan and frustration with this brand, like the force in Star Wars, is what connects us, binds us, and penetrates us all.

    And oh yeah, ntwrk or whatever it's called, technically commited retail fraud with the old "bait and switch" on the colors. I think I'll sue, my settlement price will be 1 million gold serpentine coins from the bank of Cobra.

    Do you think an alternate hood head will be an option? Or will we have to double dip? Also does hooded CC have a different outfit or would it work with this body too?

    Yeah, if the one on NTWRK really is just the regular retail version, Hasbro definitely could have communicated that better to both NTWRK and the online buyers. I’m not too upset by it, because I liked the dark blue one too and so far I’ve not been able to find any of these figures at retail anyway, so the few extra bucks for shipping isn’t that big of a deal. But there are probably some people asking “why did I have to download this app and buy this online, when it’s going to be available at retail, at the same time that this one is supposed to ship?” And really, that’s a fair question.

    Can’t sheath Snake Eyes’ knife. But it’s fine, he can hold it since he won’t be holding either of those stupid guns.
