    I wonder if it showing up at Gamestop first means this wave might be Gamestop only irl in the US. Iirc the first Gamer Edition wave was like that as was the Legacy Devcon wave.

    That Legacy wave just seems to have been an outlier. Every other class in that wave made it to regular retail, just deluxe distribution sucked.

    As for GE, it probably only got solicited to online and GameStop stores because it’s, well, a game line. Only reason we saw later figures at big box retail was because they were mixed in with non-game figures. Hasbro has a similar thing going on with their Black Series offerings for Star Wars.

    Nice! Looking forward to scorponok. I originally thought I'd pass but the more pics and reviews I see the more I want the figure. Pablo I'll get too but mostly for the sake of completion. Hopefully these ship from amazon soon, since that's where I have my preorder.

    It's funny too cause I'm actually in upstate NY right now, not too far from Albany. But I'm not going there just for this guy lol.

    I'm still surprised Scorponok of all characters were found first.

    Good to hear! Think it'll be worth it to get more than one for a little army building? Or maybe wait for them to release more colors?

    Hope he shows up soon at targets. Don't want to pay 40 bucks on ebay just to get him earlier.

    YMMV, @Black Convoy, but I was chatting with the guy at my GameStop about the random nature of these kinds of figures in store.

    Apparently depending on the store, often the action figures are online returns that they out out on the shelf. So in my local store, for example, they had two figures from a Marvel BAF wave but nothing else from it.

    So, outside of Christmas season, that's one possibility why we're starting to see scattered GameStop sightings like this more often. Especially one-offs of things that typically come in larger cases.

    I went hunting today found nothing but the new junkion. Which I got to say is very fun and arguably the best 86 junkion so far.
