    I find it hilarious that of the 42 sets on the shelf, there is an anti-theft device on one lone item . . .

    Damn, I wonder if these are going to be a big holiday push from Hasbro/Walmart.

    So that's why my Walmart isn't getting these in - they all went to this store. ;)

    I would certainly be willing to buy and ship it to you!! But by the time you add tax and shipping with delivery confirmation, you're looking at $90+. :(

    If Walmarts are getting that many of these things, then I expect a heavy clearance and/or Ollies/other discount retailers to have them next year. I love that they're bringing these back, but the prices are just too high IMO.

    And goddamnit, I don't care if the Dinobot molds are supposedly lost, SPEND THE DAMN MONEY AND MAKE NEW ONES! If they did that, and flooded shelves with reissues of all G1 dinobots, people would buy them in droves. I know I'd buy at least 2 sets, even if they were $50 each. And if they did G2 colors? Fuck yeah, Christmas decorations!

    Hmmm. Who knows, but I doubt Hasbro made that many reissues to be discounted or clearance'd at epic levels.

    These aren't released to every outlet like with Titans Returns...

    Besides the mini-bots wave 1 reissues have not been produced or released apparently. :eek:

    Sure but the issue is the ratio of people who say that is something like 20 to 1.
