Well, I'm glad that they're finally releasing him, but it's kind of stupid to limit him to one store.

I know what you mean, but you can't really do anything about it. But at least we will be getting him in the end

Finally! He's my favorite from the Car Robots line. I do agree that It's kind of stupid to limit him to one store. Maybe Hasbro gets a bigger cut that way?

...good point. Never thought of it that way before. On the other hand, Hasbro would surely make plenty through sheer number of units sold elsewhere? :confused:

... Maybe it has something to do with upping the demand? Or the value?

Hmm... :confused:

Oh well. At least we know it's being released...

...there have been rumours of Takara leaking batches of merchandise directly through e-bay and collecting circles. But why, really, when some items would fly off the shelves at any price? :)

What do the manufacturers get out of rarity value once the stuff is sold and in someone else's hands?

He may not be totaly TRU exclusive

Post by Ulticron » Tue Mar 05, 2002 4:51 pm

I work at wal-mart, not in the toy dept, but they know me all to well there *L*. I don't know if the toy dept manager was kidding yesterday but he said he had connections w/the vendor and would see what he would do about getting me Scourge. I told him he could feel free to jack the price up $5 and I wouldn't even use my wal-mart discount card. The reason i'm so up in arms to get it at work is because my nearest TRU is almost a 2 hrs drive, and I fear that no matter what time i get there it'll be gone. If this does work maybe everyone can talk to the toy dept manager at their local wal-mart an get Scourge in more places. They really should have made him a wal-mart exclusive NEways, wal-mart is almost everywhere TRU isn't.

Bah, worst comes to worse, you'll be able to get him at BBTS. They usually get the exclusives. They have Cryotek, too.

What I'm really looking for is the Fort Max. If they know what is good for them, then they'll release him immediately.

Hmmm this is interesting we seek the same things, although ye and Autobot and me a Decepticon, i propose a temporary alliance where we lay seige to the castle Hasbro's home office until they yeild and give us the strong noble Fort Max. What sayest thou?
