    Helluva paradox you’ve generated with that last photo. The consequences of that could be disastrous.

    Thanks! Saved me $20 from the two I'd ordered on Hasbro Pulse when they re-listed, and they'll get here four months sooner!

    Is it safe with GameStop or do they pull any kind of random cancelling of orders? I'd like to cancel my Hasbro Pulse pre-order now that I have a better price but not if GameStop might pull a fast one on me.

    Out of the 10 or 12 things I’ve ordered or preordered with GameStop, I haven’t gotten shafted yet.

    Like @fschuler said, I’ve ordered a few things recently with them (Gigawatt x2, Kingdom Cyclonus, Spartan collection Master Chief) and all have been great, no issues. You can trust them!

    I just realised I want a BTTF3 Gigawatt. Give him a new chest and wheels (and hopefully a new headsculpt, Ectotron-style). Thrown in a Wild West-style shotgun and a hoverboard (he even has appropriate holes under his feet), and I'd buy this guy all over again.

    They've been surprisingly decent online considering their physical stores are as bare as Walmart. I'd like to see them fix the website so I can connect with a desktop computer again. It's been three weeks and the mobile site is a real struggle with how badly it lags.

    I HATE their website...needs fixing. I do like GameStop and I hope they can pull through somehow. I would love to be able to go back to preordering all of my NECA TMNT stuff through them instead of the Target shitshow...

    If you can't get it to stick on the back of his gun (like a lot of people) you can try sticking it into the top.

    So I just tried putting the Mr. Fusion into the forearm port to act as a watch. Was this feature intentional or just a happy accident? I like having it in there as a watch compared to leaving it on the gun

    I believe it's intentional. Someone uncovered it weeks back and it seems like it's definitely molded in.

    Edit: Sold now

    I have an MISB copy available for sale. I wasn't planning on getting it but I found it in person the last one in stock on a walmart shelf. It doesn't belong in my collection really and would be better enjoyed by someone who actually was looking for it.

    Man, my 2 copies ordered back in sept/oct from target still keep getting pushed back.

    I think this may be my only option soon.

    Pulse has a pre-order that ends tonight for it. It won't ship till August but it is an option.

    Transformers Generations Collaborative: Back to the Future Mash-Up, Gi – Hasbro Pulse

    BBTS has a pre-order for September.

    Transformers x Back to the Future Collaborative Generations Gigawatt

    Edit: I would not trust Target with a pre-order unless it was their exclusive. Always have a backup.

    I still absolutely love Gigawatt. Easily one of my favorite Transformers of all time.

    But, I have two copies of this mold and the rear passenger side tire on both of them pop off when going into and out of flight mode. Quite annoying and frustrating.

    I saw one in a local used toy store for 59.99 USD. If I had the cash I would have nabbed him.

    Side note. Would it be interesting to further the line? Like Doc Brown's truck, a Prowlesque Future Cop Car (call it Speedtrap or something), the future Taxi (call it Cheqers or something cute basses off Checkers). I dunno. Random thoughts. I'd love to see more off the Ghostbusters (besides Prime) as well. Any of you guys have similar thoughts?
