  1. Perhaps, I should have rethought my stance. If they honor the phone sales, then they should put more on their site for people who was told they couldnt phone in an order.
  2. I'm loving the new 6" Titaniums. Except for Optimal Optimus. Rodimus Prime really intrigues me. Galaxy Force Vector Prime repaint doesnt look as good under normal light so I'll probably pass. But, that Crosswise Smokescreen repaint...WILL...BE...Mine!
  3. (Since Im not a club member, this is my complaint about HTS's end) Im p'ed too. I got up at 7 a.m. and was ready and 8 a.m. (central time) and then they post it for 5+ hours of coming soon and *BAM* switched to "out of stock" in a blink of an eye. What makes me also mad is that some of the operators would take phone orders others wouldnt. Now, there is talk that they might honor those. They better not. It's not fair to those that kept getting the operators that wouldnt take info...almost a selective selling if you will. Not everyone had an equal chance to purchase one. Then when the "out of stock" hour is reached. The operators can't seem to get their story straight. One person says that they are all sold out. One said he was available at 9 a.m. and the system mistakingly switched to coming soon instead of out of stock. One says that they merely switched it to "out of stock" because they didnt get their shippment. (It would have been better to take down the page instead of changing the status). Now there are rumors running rampant that all of the alottment for HTS.com was all sent to SDCC or is sitting on Singapore store shelves. In conclusion, today was one big clusterf...snafu. They greatly underestimated the demand and website traffic. That's poor market research and management. If they did have any, the most appropriate thing for them to do is wipe the slate clean and offer up Nemesis Prime again (maybe with an apology bonus) or make a second production run. Sorry for the rant, but that's my two cents.
  4. I've been waiting for 3 and a 1/2 hours along with you guys. Apparently all the traffic caused their systems to go down. It went down shortly after the gold Tie Fighter and 501 Stormtrooper became available. The system went down before they could even switch the status of Nemesis Prime. They have to wait for their systems to get back up and running before they can even switch NP over to "add to cart".
  5. I pre-ordered Prime because I got sick of trying to find him in store. I should pre-order Mirage as well.
  6. I like to think of Alt Prime as Ginrai
  7. ADV Films just announced today at Anime Expo that they're going to release this series in the states. No surprise really since they co-produced the series, which was a bold move on the part of an American Anime distribution company. Although they sure kept it under their hat for the longest time. Early guesses place the first volume arriving in stores in October/November so make sure to keep a lookout in the fall. This series is going to rock! Well, allright. That just made my day.
  8. Sooo...has anyone recieved the license to dub the new series yet?
  9. Im still waiting for Hasbrotoyshop.com to put up Alternators Prime and Mirage, but they would probably more than likely put up an entry page for the pair with a "coming soon" icon for about a month until its actually in stock.
  10. Unfortunately, the smaller Wal-Marts are particular regarding what they carry. It's a safe bet they will at least carry up to Voyagers in the mainline, but they arent always guaranteed to have Ultras, Leaders, Supremes, or Alternators. Incidently, my Wal-Mart has been finally getting some new stuff in (but alot of the new stuff that showed up was on poor condition) but no new alts, just the same Tracks, Skids, and Sunstreaker. ...you would think living in Wal-Mart's home state of Arkansas...
  11. WOOOOOOOO, I like the blacklight effect.
  12. My Wal-Mart seems to overstock stuff. I can usually score the odd TF Cybertron there easily if Im patient enough, but Alternators are another story. They are so full of Skids, Tracks, and Sunstreakers, that I doubt they will restock with the Optimus wave anytime soon. That's why, as soon as I find one in stock at WM or KB.com, Im going to get him online and pay a little more for shipping.
  13. I might be in the minority, but I really don't have a problem with the green wing parts. I like to think of them as solar panels to gather energy for his fusion cannon. At least that's the way I like to think of them.
  14. Personally, I dont really have a problem with the color scheme on Neo-G1 Megatron in the first place.
  15. The way Cartoon Network is going by putting up 5 episodes every week, we could be seeing the end of the series in 3 weeks (if they continue that trend that is)
  16. So, I guess that means that the only release left in TFU are the Micromaster Aerialbots.
  17. I found the mechs a while back at a Dollar General for $5 a piece. But those, along with the comic two-packs and single figures, are the only Joes I have seen at DG. But $2 for vs. packs is not bad at all.
  18. I got one to open and I have to say it was impressive but smaller compared to AA's Enterprise-A. Unfortunately, I had to return mine due to a paint problem in the area in front of the bridge. The paint appeared to have been scrapped off.
  19. My Wal-Mart is crammed with Vector Prime, Crumplezone, Leobreaker, and Mudflaps voyager wise and CD Red Alerts ultra wise. I'm hoping they might clearence them out to make room for new stuff.
  20. I think this is a seller solicitation for the eHobby exclusive cobalt sentry set that featured a repaint Ravage and Laserbeak. Pic
  21. My only interest in the 3" line is when it comes to TF-themed ships like the upcoming Ark. Hopefully there will be other ships like the movie shuttles, Axalon, Nemesis, the Predacon ship. But other than that...that's about it.
  22. I finally picked one up at the local video store that sells collectibles. I opened as well. It's not quite as big as the Enterprise-A but its still impressive and better looking than the playmates First Contact Enterprise-E. Unfortunately, I had to return mine because a small section of paint right in front of the bridge was missing (or had been scrapped off somehow) and they didnt have another one.
  23. There is rumor that he will be re-released with the Neo-G1 line and TRU does have info in their computer about a $90 20th Prime to back up that claim. But BBTS does have a pre-order up for those that want a UK re-release of 20th Prime (he will even have a new kind of package to boot).
  24. I went to three Targets the other day and couldnt find any Constructicons. But, Im not really concerned because I already have the yellow Wal-Mart set that was offered back on "The Day After Thanksgiving" sales that one year. But I did score a Overbite/Repungnus set. I have to admit, they are both really awesome looking and are worth more than the Constructicons, imo. Overbite is larger looking than BW Cybershark. Too bad they didnt get around to releasing Thrustol.
  25. There's not really any scouts I want save for Lugnutz but I doubt I will see him in TRU anytime soon. But, if his wave showed up, it would be a great way for people to build up armies of Scrapmetals. :lol
