    I'm not a combative guy by nature, but I don't understand any of the griping. Gigawatt is still up places. He was up forever in internet time (2 hours or more might as well be a year). He has every accessory everyone wanted. They even changed the windshield. I'm trying to figure out exactly what they could have done better at this point.

    Like...here you go. He's still here.

    There are probably a few wouldn’t mind about that price tag. It can be tempting for those want to have Gigawatt before the end of this year.

    Their name should be in there because you don't so much buy a copy of Shopify as you reskin their templates.

    It does some downright weird things. Back when they launched, I bought 2 each of 3 Siege deluxes on sale for $10. Pulse shipped 3 boxes of 2 toys, grouped by character. Alright. So then this year I ordered 2 Mysterios. And they divided that into 2 orders, each shipped separately. Must be getting a killer deal on shipping to be able to afford to ship so many separate boxes for free.

    But it's really all of them...BigCommerce, Volusion, StorEnvy, etc...that are weird in different ways.

    These will be as plentiful as the Ectobot. I'm waiting for a Gamestop or Target coupon.

    True.

    And I'd contend that what Super 7 does and what Hasbro does for a Transformer... not remotely the same thing, nor as easy to turn around as quickly.

    I'm not one of the folks who's complained about that (say what you will about any other comments I've made), but I do confess, seeing some of the promo pictures where they did some kind of Photoshop magic to make it LOOK like he's done in DeLorean-accurate brushed steel, it is a bit disappointing that the actual toy won't look like that.

    I'll deal, but it would have been nice....

    Why is the one on Amazon $50?

    Amazon loves jacking prices up these past few years. It's usually an algorithm thing, but this must have been intentional.

    Either way, not good.

    I sincerely doubt the Amazon price stands. But I guess time will tell. If they charge me 50 and send it to me, I'll be sending it right back for free. Win / win.

    I rarely shop Walmart.com, what's the trepidation regarding ordering from them?

    Ebay:
    They loooooove delaying preorders two weeks past the promised ship date, and then canceling them. And if they do ship, the product is usually pretty thrashed by the time it arrives. Walmart is a distant fourth choice out of the Big Four.

    Yikes! I'll place an Amazon order as well and hope the price drops or be prepared to fight for a partial refund.

    Thanks for the quick answer.
