    I said the same thing on Mega's forum. I was basically told to stop focusing on the past because they're making plans for a better future[!].

    I will believe it when I see it.

    And, sadly, none of the sets that they flubbed distribution for will likely ever see a reissue because they have more Master Chiefs to sell in other kits.

    The South of Frankfort, Ky side. I don't have a "local" Target so I just typically pick a direction I have not been in a while and try my luck. I don't do it often though as time and gas will eventually add up to, "well, I may as well pay a scalper on eBay or ToyWiz at this point."

    That particular day, I had gone up to the Newport Target and one further West on Beechmont Avenue in Ohio. Mostly because I had gone as far as Newport already and wasn't going to let another thirty minutes of traveling hold me back. Glad I did too as that was store with the mongoose and warthog kits.

    I have tried the UPCs for the kits in Brickseek, they produced no results. Same with DPCI for the single carded figures. Even the store I found those at in Louisville wasn't showing that it recognized any of the individual UPCs.

    My local Walmart had Mega Construx figures on clearance for $3 (MOTU and Halo).
    Finally picked up Skeletor, although I'm not sure where to put him since I already have the first release and the Wind Raider release.
    I also got the Marine Sniper, which is awesome. I mainly wanted another sniper rifle, and the inclusion of a female soldier in my ranks was a nice add. She actually comes with a helmet as well, which if I had known, probably would have prompted me to buy a few more.

    Mattel, you gotta do better on your packaging. Alternate heads should be advertised upfront.

    Doesn't need to be said really, but it is quite hard to get excited for your product if the product you want never gets to anywhere you can buy!

    Time to get back in the game, so I've taken a sample of customs I've done over the years for CoD sized figures.
    Joe Colton with the Yellow Straps and beared head on Green body, no prizes for guessing Venom Snake in the 3rd picture either.

    Also got 2 of those new Halo Infinite Recon Getaway sets from Amazon, love the classic armor for the Elites, don't mind the taller marine, they do look good and can take the CoD Thigh gear and it's my first time with the newest Grunt construx, lovely figures.

    Stop focusing on the past? Um... sure, maybe once the present isn't the same as the past? Until there's any actual evidence that they're going to behave differently, not just idle promises, I don't see why anybody would be challenging you to let go of the past.

    I miss my ambition to customize things.

    Any luck finding the new stuff?

    Well, I tried to get the SDCC Halo set but it sold out while I was checking out. Less than 5 minutes.

    Online ordering is a joke nowadays.

    I couldn't even get the link to pop up through their Instagram page for the first five minutes.

    Mattel is a shitshow.

    I managed to get one, but my buddy who was standing next to me didn’t. We were both getting payment errors but on the third try my order went through and his said sold out.
