    All true enough, but another country's tax policies hardly have any relevance to whether a retailer (or e-tailer) is a "second-hand shop" or not.
    It would make a difference on whether I ordered from them, but it has no bearing on their status.

    True but it does change your pov if you live on the otherside of the planet. Wasn't saying anything on status only where you live defines your opinion.

    Second hand shop? That implies they are a reseller of only used merchandise...

    They had Slingshot and Wildrider for the exact same prices as HTS and Amazon. Later stock was increased, but the original sales of them were $16.99 not extra price.

    Mine will go in storage.

    As for Rook, hes joining Offroad and Alpha Bravo. Still need to get 1 extra limb and they can go on either Reg. Optimus or Cyclonus.

    I already got Break-Neck "Wild-rider" and Quickslinger "Slingshot". Which make me happy, having the true originals gives a more G1 feel to it, rather then a comic feel.
    As for the Combaticons Blast-Off I think we won't be getting a shuttle there, which is sad but i can live with it.

    Just for everybody wondering about if they should bite on the ebay one for 35.00 shipped, I added a random CW deluxe to my Hasbro toy shop cart (16.99 msrp) and added the MAY Mayhem discount (2.55) and with the dumb tax (5.10) it comes out to 19.54 with free shipping.
    I just went for the ebay option. To me the extra 15 bucks was worth not having to scan the internet and stress about finding one later, but I can see why someone wouldnt want to pay the mark-up.

    Just as a heads up, according to my awesome inside sources, May 24 is supposed to be the official "street date" for Groove. That means on this day, you'll probably see instant "in stock" listings pop up at BBTS, Amazon, Hasbro Toy Shop, Target, Kmart, Toys"R"Us, Walmart, ToyWiz, Entertainment Earth and a crapload of other places.

    Unless one of those sites decides to break the street date.

    Or my sources were wrong.

    sweet picture, wish all the bots came with a set of guns, or at least blasters. The axes, pipes and zapper tools are not that entertaining.
