Well, looks like it wasn't up for order today. So only 2 days of orders and both days sold out within a few minutes. Yeah, I'm sure only 20 were put up in total. Hasbro REALLY dropped the ball on this one. I say next year we boycott whatever exclusive they have.

i wanted a Shockwave and a Bruticus so i'm saddened i won't be able to get them for retail. But at least they offered some outside SDCC. They could have sold them all there and not even bother with everyone else. It is an exclusive to the convention. They could have the attitude of "if you want one so bad, just go to the convention". I appreciate Hasbro for at least making some available to the rest of the public. oh well. to ebay i go for Shockwave. I'll pass on Bruticus for now since i can get the general release and the G2 repaint. 2 Bruticus' will do for now.

Now that's 'truly outrageous'...'truly, truly, truly outrageous'...

 

Sorry, had to. ;)

 

:lol you crossed the line buddy.... :P

 

I just think that it is idiodic of Hasbro to make a cross over exclusive for 2 extremely huge fan bases and then make less

of the item than a NYCC exclusive of just a transformer. They could have charged more for it and made more in the production run and it would have sold out as well. Seems like to me the magic price point is $100. That Avengers Air craft carrier is still sitting there at $129....it actually peaked my interest as it looks to be enormous remenecent of the GI Joe Air craft carrier in the 80's. I figured that Hasbro wouldn't post any more for sale I was hoping that they would over the week as that would be nice for the fans....but it seems like that is not the case. Maybe check through out the weekend and next week. Hasbro seems to be full of surprises.....on another note anyone know when the MP 10 is suppose to hit the TRU shelves and if there is an item # like MP Thundercracker?

imho below:

 

I was impressed with the HTS SDCC ordering rules. buyers were only allowed one item each. this was a great rule. as it ensured more buyers could get these items.

I think that, next year, they should introduce a lottery system. Interested buyers who have an established HTS account can request to purchase the exclusives. If their number is drawn, they are secured the order. That should take care of all the panicking and erroneous duplicate requests.

some TRU stores already have made space on the shelf for TC with price stickers. Not stock yet.
