    I found TR wave 2 while checking to see if Brainstorm had shown up, so that was a while ago. Then I didn't want wave 3 to come out in December because I wanted to focus on getting other people gifts. Now I've only seen Legends wave 3 so far. I don't mind waiting but I don't know how mindful retailers are going to be about the Generations line when the movie stuff shows up.

    I've had plenty of time to get into the LD Voltron line.

    Makes sense, he dead! Maybe the legs are Wildrider in a similar body to Breakdown. Then he'd be big like Grimlock, and those two always kind of looked a little similar. I don't know if we'll get it but I would be down for a Combiner made of Warrior-ish new characters. I like CW Menasor but if they are doing an articulated Combiner in RID I would be hyped for some of their original designs.

    I spoke to a Hasbro employee at a Walmart and they told me that Hasbro wasn't interested in stocking/restocking any TR because the movie toys will be coming out in June.

    The Dianauts pack and the Powered Suit System Two Pack are TakaraTomy Mall exclsuives in Japan. That's why HLJ doesn't have them listed. It seems that they were more widely released in the non-Japanese Asian market (like the MP Seeker repaints have been) and that might be where BBTS is getting their stock from.

    Can't speak for everyone, but I've had good experiences with both directtv and att uverse in the past. Cox is the best internet provider by far though IMO (just Internet, their cable is stupid overpriced).

    For the record, any time you want to do another UTOM@MOTU I'd be down for it. That was the hardest I've laughed in a good while.

    And Seth, if it makes you feel any better your Target sounds a lot like the stores here. My local Target has two RID15 Minicon packs, a leader Skywarp, and a dust-covered box full of whatever those blindpacked Transformers Funko Pop things are. I have seen new stuff show up, but it all disappears immediately and never gets restocked. I'm starting to wonder if Hasbro has hired someone from Nintendo to run distribution.
