    U can secure everything in the world, but not your money...

    After that at the end, none of it can bring along with you...

    No. Tons of that available in Metros & OGs upon release. They just got bought up quickly though. ;) 

    The TakaTom versions were made available in Takashimaya. I remembered me posted the first sighting for these back then. :D 

    Also, members from the other forum had posted sightings of Scattorshot in OG Albert.

    Are there any proof with photo evidence that TONS were available in Metros & OGs? :sly:

    ^ And maybe the list of people whom have gotten him through me can vouch for me safely? :D 

    For the record, I'd gotten a fair bit of these so called "desirable pieces" for members on both forums, no?

    Hmm..what a pity then, I know of someone who's close to me & dearest to my heart (someone chubby). he was desperate to look for one locally but to no avail.

    Alas he had to resort to evilbay & get one from overseas. it's THAT elusive. :redface2:

    The same thing could be said for TFU Legends Class Wave 2. (Rodimus, Cosmo, Wheelie & Warpath)

    If anyone remember, these were generally available in all major retail outlets (Takashimaya, Metros, OGs, Kiddy Palaces etc,) at one point.

    They still sold out fast enough & people had to import these pieces.

    I know of one ex-member who bought the whole set from overseas eventually. :p

    Andrew, saw a certain someone lurking on the thread earlier (Hint: an associate that had brief moments with both you & evilcow79) so I sent him/her an invit to come join us here.

    Wow, logged off & gone instantly. :redface2:

    I don't want to resort to bay to find skystalker.

    Plus during the movie hype, you can barely find toys of sideswipe and bumblebee.

    What Rainy said, and it's not always about the want, but rather the "want NOW".

    Sure I can prob get it cheaper later, but sometimes that's no fun when all my friends have him and are playing with him -now-, so there's that peer pressure thing too XD

    They're not that bad as compared to the Icecream twins. That was SOoo seriously scalped at one point & people were parting with SGD $40 to get themselves one.

    Simply Toys were pricing their Icecream Truck over SGD $50+ back then.

    "Wanting it" & "Wanting it NOW" often means a vast difference in pricing. :lol 

    Sometimes, that difference topples the scale over & the wallet finds it difficult to breathe...

    I guess this is solely up to individuals. If you're buying/collecting alot of TFs, then you seriously can't afford to jump at every single piece when they're released. :)

    $50 for a pair of shelfwarmers? Glad I didnt jump into the hype.

    The truth is most of us have the impulse to follow the crowd. I admit there are times when I think to myself, 'should I get more of this for MISB' or 'should I just keep it in its packaging'.

    I have to constantly tell myself to get what I like, not what people like.

    Err...Technically, its $50+ for an Icecream Truck (though you can halved that into 2 separate TFs but the combined form is still ONE truck at the end of the day) ;)
