    ... Wow. I'm really pissed off. No, it's fine. It's not like I bought 3 of them at $25 each, and the order didn't get shipped until October, but are sitting at my middleman's house until TFCon Toronto next year.
    I'm never buying Hasbro "exclusives" again.

    I was really hoping they'd do a toy-accurate release of Blast Off because I hate the Takara colors so much.

    If I find any locally, I'll hook people up. I will only ask cost plus shipping.

    This doesn't shock me too much. I remember Break-Neck and Quickslinger were found a retail for a limited time

    Ah, now it's on the front page.
    *sigh* please stop reminding me...
    I was doubting it anyway since we already have a Deluxe Blast Off figure in the line, and unlike Groove he wouldn't be jumping from one size class to another. They could possibly squeeze him in under the Titans Return label to get by some technicality, but I'm not holding my breath..... I'll cross my fingers though.
    It doesn't bother my near as much on Blast Off as the other members of the squad as the show accurate colors of the Combaticons are kind of dull and have goofy layouts. I'd rather his actual optics were purple instead of that spot on his forehead, but compared to blue head on Onslaught, Brawl's orange hunting cap, the super grey of Vortex, and Bruticus' brown chestplate... seems very minor in comparison.

    Dead serious. The back of Giant Grooves box says so.

    They already did that. came in the same wave as the other five Combaticons.

    Exactly... And I'm just saying it but the Jet Blast Off is the better of the two

    Honestly I would only get the Shuttle Blast Off if Hasbro would repaint and release him in Jet Blast Off's color scheme. I'm glad you can reverse the torso but that color scheme.

    Lol , I feel your pain . I adore the anime colors more than the Hasbro version , I love it when Takara releases anime exclusives , like the Devy set with a new head - that was awesome .

    Try ordering a few cases the day they were solicited in May and waiting until fucking yesterday to get them.

    That's "ordering absolutely anything Hasbro if you're smaller than BBTS in 2016" in a nutshell.

    For most of November, my account dashboard said JANUARY 2017.

    Has me very worried that those MAFEX BvS figures I ordered 6 months before the movie bombed aren't really going to wait until next year.

    Until these show up at more than one Wal-Mart, I'd assume that they were online orders that some guy cancelled when he found out that he wasn't going to get jack reselling them for no real profit.

    Possibly, but I would think that someone doing that would wait until Deluxes were back up to full price before returning them.

    He would get back whatever price he paid for them on his receipt if they were ordered from Walmart.com if he returned them or cancelled the order.

    It's also possible that he ordered a bunch on Walmart.com and never picked them up and the order was cancelled. You only get something like a week to pick up your dot com orders. Cancelled orders are also usually not able to be sent back to the warehouse because it would cost the individual store more money for the return shipping, so the store that is stuck with them just puts them out on the pegs to sell them off.
