I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

I found them in the wild way back when they first started hitting. One full set at one store and then a lone CC at one other store and nothing since.

As for other craziness, just snagged white and red Jinx for a Benjamin shipped. To stop myself from crying I figure I've spent less than had I bought all the exclusives I would have bought on HTS (since I'm not spending aftermarket for Bruticus or the HISS).

I mean, it still sucks that I missed her coming back up on HtS though.

I'm not gonna knock that. Whatever it takes not to get even more annoyed.

Having Zarana and the skystriker ripped from my cart last year jaded me to the whole experience, anyways. My apathy is my shield when it comes to these things now.

I think I got my Temple Snake-Eyes at a comic shop. Been a while.

It's weird, my area missed out on the last wave of both POC and 30th Anniversary...

Fortunately I only wanted two figures from the POC wave, and found one (Temple Snake-Eyes) at a comic shop.


No Dollar Generals up here, hence no Dollar General Joes. DePriest said at SDCC that he was going to look into improving distribution on them.

One of my Dollar Generals has three of the single-card Dusty figures, a single-card Tele-Viper, and some of the single-card Heroes figures from the first movie.

That's it.

Nobody else that I've been to has anything yet.

Man, the more that I read this thread, the more I realize how lucky I must have gotten with POC. I found pretty much everything in the wild, save for a few waves I ordered from BBTS.

I found a single, apparently random Shipwreck at DG about a month back, but not even a hint of anything since.

Same here. Got Waves 1-3 at retail, found scattered bits of Wave 4 at retail but already ordered them through BBTS, and Waves 5-6 I only got thanks to BBTS.

I managed to find everyone in the first five of six waves of POC, except Shadow Tracker, at retail.... MUCH less lucky with the 30th anniversary.

The one time I did see Shadow Tracker, it was at a Walgreens. That was also the only place I ever saw ROC Kamaukra and Nano Viper, too.

I preordered the hell out of the 30th anniversary figures, but it turns out I shouldn't have. I found PLENTY of the first two waves on store shelves, and even found each of the elusive Storm Shadow wave at least once.

Yeah, they're out, but I've only seen the regular versions, not the variants. Snagged a Cobra trooper, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, and Snake Eyes. If you see the old accessory-free Valor vs Venom crap on the shelves, however, might as well turn around since no Dollar General I've checked has put up the new stuff if there's still garbage on the rack.

Not just the VvV stuff, but the Combat Heroes. The rumor was those are supposed to be gone from any given store before the store receives its next batch of Joes. With that in mind, I suppose some stores might get the new ones in a couple of years. icon-waspy.gif

I can say that, thankfully, that much isn't true. I've seen the Combat Heroes at every Dollar General, and they don't halt the new stuff from being put out probably because they occupy different rack space. VvV stuff, on the other hand, seems to be on the hook where the new figures would go, so that makes more sense.

I can confirm this as well. Combat Heroes were everywhere, no matter the 3.75 offerings.
