Hrmmm...so there was a restock for today? I guess I never had a chance especially if it is 1% of their production run...it would have to be 10000 units made to equate to 100 units on the website. Just makes me mad knowing that Hasbro knows that it would sell out and can't make enough for the demand. The NYCC exclusive is a poor example since those figures are only Transformers...the SDCC HISS tank appeals to a much larger market like GI Joe AND Transformer fans meaning that there are way more people who will be wanting it than just TF fans. I was actually thinking of getting that set when I was able to order the SDCC HISS tank, but silly me thought i would even have a chance....well given that I couldn't sit tirelessly infront of a computer refreshing the screen waiting for the 2 minute window where I could even click on them and order them. I hope that maybe Habro is spacing them out over the week to give people a chance maybe to get these during the week? That would actually be very thoughtful.....

The Starscream of last year was massively popular, so it's not a surprise that HISS Shockwave is popular as well. Plus, many Joe and Transformers fans have always enjoyed Joe/Transformers crossovers, so why not?

 

I also think that Hasbro kicked down the number they are making this year. The Arcee/Bumblebee set is still available, and they have decided to no longer head to NYCC.

If they do go up again I still won't have a chance to get one, I work everyday, and since no announcements abut availability ever go up, I can't schedule the time to get it....

 

If they do happen to go up again will someone grab a Bruticus for me and sell it back to me at your cost plus whatever shipping to me? As long as it's reasonable unlike ebay markups, then I still want one, I can pay you through paypal.

I have no idea, honestly. They don't even have a banner on their main site.

 

They could just be slowly bleeding them out there at like 10 at a time for all I know.

    • Crankcase is hilarious. It's so awful and awesome at the same time. The entire front of the vehicle comes off, turns sideways, has a little piece flip around and becomes a gun. Ever since we first seen pictures of him I was wondering what they were doing with the front of his vehicle/chest. I never would've expected that though. It sure is a different design choice that's for sure. I can't wait for the upgrade kit to give him his shoulder cannons. I wonder how those will be implemented. I hope at least better than SS86 Jazz's shoulder cannon. Dead End is what it is still. Nothing to really talk about. I still don't like how Hasbro makes the lower legs longer than the upper legs for Transformers constantly though. Many of their designs would work better with longer upper legs like Dead End. Pointblank looks good. I understand the hate some have but I don't have that same hate. I just hate the Targetmaster still. We just had better ones that they're still using. Did it really cost that much to add one in at this point? Sure it's double the parts count and isn't gangmolded but still, it's not like Pointblank himself is all that complicated to begin with and the Battlemasters have long since made their money back with using those molds. They could've moved him into a wave with reissues or slight retools to eat some of the cost for that wave too instead of having it a wave with major retools and new molds entirely. Again, I can't wait to see the upgrade kit to give him that engine block spoiler gun thing to finish off the center rear of the vehicle mode. Hopefully they'll remember to put a 5mm port in the middle of it for a Targetmaster. Yeah Peacemaker already fills that spot but we all know that someone is going to make that piece to fit there. Skullgrin looks good but I don't like it as Skullgrin. I still think the original Generations Skullgrin is better overall. I do like all the weapons on this new one though. I'm just a little confused about what the vehicle mode is really supposed to be. It has treads in the back but nothing in the front. Is it a tank? Is it a half-track? Is it a hover tank? What is it? That head is awesome though and beats the older head by quite a bit. Transmetal II Megatron. Transmetal II Megatron. Wow. I just hope that the dragon neck/upper chest area is mistransformed. Or that something can be done. That was very much a bad choice if that's indeed all it can be. I can't wait to have to tighten up all those ball joints to get everything just like I want. Cryotek is the obvious redeco but I want one more other than him. I seen a digibash of him as RiD 2001 Megatron/Gigatron and while it looks good, I don't want that. I'd much rather have this redone as Beast Wars II Galvatron. It's not like the drill tank was all that much better than TMII Megatron's dragster so it's easy to leave out. Once you take out the drill tank, the dragons don't look too dissimilar to each other at that point. Yeah Galvatron didn't have a dragon arm but I'll take what I can get when it comes to a new toy for him.
