HTS

They've got the wave 1 Prime deluxes and voyagers. Also deluxe Arcee and Ratchet, but both of them and Soundwave are sold out. Also, the available ones are preorders, but it says they ship in 7 to 9 days (pretty close to the "street date").

Ooo nice. I have already been checking most days. Arcee and Ratchet are wave 2 so probably a pre-stock rather than sold out.

They were in stock this afternoon. In the time it took me to put Ratchet in my cart and get to the shipping screen he sold out. Arcee lasted a couple hours longer.

I was able to snag an Arcee and a Ratchet, but I'm a rampant refresher. Ratchet sold out FAST.

I guess that's a good sign for them being in stores soon?

Hmm, no free shipping though. Even with groupon (which was $15 for a $30 credit) it'll come out close to store prices. But still, nice to have peace of mind in these uncertain times.

Dammit, I was really considering ordering WJ and Megatron. I would have definitely gotten WJ and Soundwave had I found this in time. But I didn't order last night, and guess what - now you can only get Optimus and BB! Pretty much just like at the hugging store.

Dammit, Hasbro. You are hugging things up left and right.

So, to easily get the TFs I want, I always have to be ready to purchase right then? I guess this is more of a cases assortment complaint. More Wheeljacks and Soundwaves in a case when mean more available.

She was available slightly longer than Ratchet was yesterday but I couldn't bring myself to buy just her.

If I'm in a store and I see new Transformers, and I pass on them, and I come back in the morning and somebody else bought them first... I don't think that's Hasbro's fault. Pretty sure that's on me.

That's an entirely different argument. The way Hasbro's online store has always worked is you usually have to grab the new stuff when you see it, as it does move fast. I missed out on this stuff too, I expected the usual Wednesday appearance, but I'm not going to set up a scapegoat and start crying on an online forum cause of my screw up.

Besides, it's not like this jive will be EVERYWHERE in a few months and we'll all be hearing about the same "shelfwarming Ratchets" and all that.

But yeah, if you HAVE to have it NOW, be prepared to pay. Otherwise, wait a few weeks for EVERY BIG BOX RETAILER to start getting these toys out.

Indeed. I passe don picking the wave 1 guys up lats Saturday when they were right in front of me because they were at the Times Square TRU. That's the TRU that loves to have the higher prices, mostly likely so they can gouge the tourist shoppers. This is the first wave of a new line, released at the start of the year, the stuff is going to be everywhere in a month or two.

Man I wish walmart.com would start stocking any new TFs anymore, they really haven't done anything good in a while.
