    Former GS employee here. They have multiple outsourced teams they use, thus the wildly all over the place CS. (They are looking to replace them though) If you decide to, the in store CS that an employee can call is much better, and all serviced in house. It is up to the employee though, but most will do it for you if they are not busy and you explain the situation. Otherwise, i'd say call them again and mention these issues you've had. They hopefully at that point would just give it to you due to the trouble you've had.

    FWIW, GameStop.com says these are "in good supply" and ready to ship. $50.

    Edit- Mine's being delivered tomorrow, woo! Does anybody want the box, assuming it's in good shape? I'm going to takes pics of it for myself and toss it otherwise.

    Got mine today. Packed well, but UPS still managed to ding a corner. Wonderful otherwise.

    Fully extended is correct because of how they lock in

    Certainly the number of parts shared between the two are quite few.

    I am TOTALLY using my Vector Oracle with this toy! Brilliant idea!

    I stole the idea from a fellow board member haha. But yea it’s literally just the limbs that are shared. Pretty sure even the chest is different despite looking similar

    At this point, eBay will probably be your best bet. Most places I looked at were out of stock.

    I would agree at this point. I got him when he was on clearance at BBTS, but I assume those are long gone by now.

    Pretty sure Vector Oracle sold out at BBTS a couple weeks after Ectotron was revealed. I bought mine like a day or two after the news broke.
    i got him and the clear NewAge Cosmos for Ectotron too. Can’t have enough clear green bots now.:D

    OMG, I just had a head-canon idea: Ectotron is inhabited by the spirit of Egon Spengler. Both begin with E and end with -on. *spooky sound effect*
