Curse you poor distribution.

Postby Period » Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:59 am

I thought about this the other day and it made me chuckle.

Imagine if in life Megs had to wait for others to be distributed so he could fight his glorious battle. Obviously, the Autobots would win. Not only because they have it four on two for PRID Wave 1, but there would be about 10 Bumblebees for every one Decepticon.

I understand it might not be distribution, but that's how it seems to me. And that poor distribution, plus case assortment leaves me without a Soundwave.

This is how picture the battle to go:

LOL, very true. Considering the number of Bumblebee's that tend to get left on the shelves (from any line), you'd think that they'd stop packing so many of him in and stop having that one figure that only has one in a box.

:lol: and very true.

I bought my son legion class Cliffjumper and Arcee and he told me he wants a Decepticon to fight with. I have to say "Sorry, no Decepticon. Maybe you should mix them with movie toys for now" since I couldn't find Vehicon. Seriously, legion class first wave has 5 figures and 4 of them are Autobots. And I couldn't even find the only Decepticon.

The more I see of that damn RID Prime, the more I want it. I think it's a jelly issue >:(

The jelly issue almost got me into buying RID Bee. But I resisted.

And you're right. Hasbro's decreasing the amount of Decepticons in each case. Even some lines without Decepticons! Look at RB :sad: ! I guess Autobots appeal more to kids >_>

I miss the days the Autobots were outnumbered :(

What really makes me mad is that there isn't a single Decepticon leader class in the DOTM line!!! WTF Hasbro!? There where many great Leader Decepticon molds they could have made! Megatron, Shockwave, freaking Blackout!!! But they didn't they took the cheap ass way out and gave us 3 Autobot leaders, and reduced the size of everything. This damn RID line had better have a Leader Class or Commander or whatever the hell they're calling these things now adays, Megatron. :evil: Oh and a Soundwave too!!! And one of those Insecticon things that will be in the next episode!!!

Well, I was fortunate enough to snag four of them off of TRU.com. I was so hesitant on paying the prices because I thought I would see all of these in the stores in no time and it would be a full stock of them.

Guess I was wrong.

Your turn will come though.

Prime is really cool. He's got an interesting transformation. I do like Bumblebee, but he would be a last resort buy if I couldn't find anything else.

all i really wanna see in regards to leader class in Prime are Omega Supreme, gestalt sets, or bots and cons scaled that way in the tv show. they are so close to getting the scale right i dont want them to mess it up cause someone up there says "we need another really big bumblebee, kids will like that"

Prime is great with detailing from a Sharpie. Bee is great IMO, but that's just me

You think TFP is bad? Look at Rescue bots! 0 Decepticons! What do they fight anyways?

I can't speak for other areas but for Europe and the UK the distribution is down to Hasbro's failure. That Megatron has shown up in other parts of Britain but the south east is just not getting any more deliveries at the moment.
