    watch it end up being some off the wall release that nobody guessed, like this 4 pack haha (people accurately guessed, knok and skar along with frenzy and wingthing, just not as a 4 pack)

    Sign me up for the unexpected. And actually, given that this Selects set is already sold out everywhere, people clearly are down with these kind of sets (starting to think why I made the argument that this set is a cashgrab in the first place :p ).

    Theory no.3 noted.

    Still hoping that HasbroPulse has this available again when it comes in stock. Subscribed to this thread in the hopes that someone might update if/when it does. I mean I am checking too, of course, but the threads are usually the fastest way to stay updated.

    I've noticed that with all the past Selects (not counting the Takara Tomy Selects, because I haven't paid much attention to them), they've been pretty good about getting them back into stock, I haven't pre-ordered any of the Selects & have gotten them just fine. I probably should have pre-ordered this one to be safe, but Pulse refuses to allow PayPal for pre-orders, so here I am. I'm fairly confident they'll come back at some point though.

    Unfortunately, I'd use Takara product such as MPs as more of an indicator of Takara Selects as far as restocking on Pulse. Not Hasbro Selects.

    But aren't these Hasbro Selects? The description doesn't say Takara. Most of the Hasbro Selects from 2019 are still available, so I'm hoping these tapes are in the same boat. I think they will be in higher demand than the 2019 Selects because they are tapes, but even so I'm optimistic they will be "in stock" when they actually do come in.

    They're definitely Hasbro Selects, which is why I made the distinction in my original comment "not counting the Takara Tomy Selects, because I haven't paid much attention to them".

    My bad, I'm following your context now. Yes, hopefully this tapes set is as plentiful as Doubledealer, at least!

    I would like to have more Mercenary tapes for Doubledealer. I could see Sundor and Flip Sides being tapes for DD.They are listed on TFWiki.net as both 'bot and 'con. Flip Sides could be a repaint of Rumble ( if there isn't an Eject mold).

    Because the tapes are tied with another and if they were to be Mercenaries, what characters could the Ravage and Ratbat mold be recolored/retooled into? New characters? Characters that were not originally tapes?

    "Correct" as in "original", actual Powermaster figures, which I'm sure there is a market for, just as there was a market for the Ginrai set by Prefect Effect:

    -



    Not at all, my dear apologist. I'm happy that they're out, but not in the way they were released.

    My Spy Patrol set was just charged by EE. Does this mean it's going to ship soon?

    Except that fact that the power master for the PE set is so ridiculously flimsy and frustrating to the point I just threw him in the cab and never touched it again. The mold itself has ball joints that far too small to hold anything, and the legs are far too small to stand without wasting 3 minutes fiddling with it. If you’re so obsessed with toonsimping just wait for some 3P to fill the void. If a 3P company can’t nail a competent power master, Hasbro shouldn’t. It’s better for Hastak to know their limits than trying to ambitiously replicate something only to flop and fail. The powermasters neither have any market interest or an audience for Hasbro to invest in a brand new mold to what is essentially glorified accessory. If you’re losing your mind over it, you can always head to Mandarake and shell out more for the original toy.

    For you, maybe, but not for me. Mine was fine. The ones in the YouTube reviews were fine. As for "market share", well, you've no facts to back that claim up (making it irrelevant) and also I stated that there is a market for a THIRD PARTY version (based upon the seemingly popular Perfect Effect version, plus the "MP" style Overlord and Ginrai figures adjust sold

    I meant unique tooling and a brand new mold. The selects one is perfectly fine. The guy is losing his cool because it’s not a complete simp to a poorly animated cartoon in Japan.
