So US has Bee warmers and Singapore has Bulk warmers and Romania has Bee hungry? Is it Hasbro idiot or the retail stores idiot? Or both.

My kids want Cyberverse Cliffjumper and there are none. My kids want Cyberverse Knock Out and there are none. My kids want Cyberverse Breakdown and there are none. So don't blame them. It's not their fault. They don't even get to the toy isle as much as we do.

Your children don't factor in with the norms. They have a collector for a parent. They have an inside tip.
When I was a kid, I didn't know what was coming out until:

a) I had seen it in person

b) There was advertisement for it.

I have realized that the modernization of America has made it more difficult for children to gain wages so they can absorb some of these accursed swarm of Bees.

You see, with the introduction of methods like machining to accomplish a goal faster we have lost too many skilled workers, like the children.
Back in the old days, you could work those little rugrats in the fields
pickin' potatoes and bean pods. Earnin' their worth for just one Bumblebee.
Now at the current rate for a Bumblebee divided by 10 cents a day for toiling in the fields they should have enough for Bumblebee in about 130 days(that's with no days off :DANCE: ) + a bit more to pay taxes.
BUT THESE KIDS AREN'T EVEN WORKING!!!
How can we expect the economy to pick up when we are simultaneously selling these hot items but denying those who would buy the opportunity for capital [-( we can't stand for this. If we want these Bees removed WE MUST PUT THESE NIMBLE, ENERGETIC YOUTHS TO WORK!
Down with machines!

Ironic that to buy the toys we love, we must do what is right and destroy that which we love :(

So, you would disagree?
If I'm not gonna buy it. And you're not gonna buy it. The purchase lands on the children which these toys were made for.
As the internet will prove kids love Bumblebee, kids want to be Bumblbee:

(Their costumes are kind of weak though, they don't even have battle masks, sheesh!)
If these Bumblebees are to move from the toys shelves to the lives of the kids,
well, I think we know what to do. >:oP

If you knew that the children could have this:

wouldn't you give them the means?

I'd rather just pay some kids to go into a shop and smash all the BBs they can find. So long as they're young enough they're not going to do any time.

Someone I know in Singapore said they recently got Hasbro FE's in (minus Starscream and Prime). But there isn't much room for profit on them. Bulkhead is $50 and I believe he said the deluxe were $25. Vehicon could bring in something but only *just* since he's running about $50 with free shipping on ebay. So estimating international shipping at around $15-20... it's not really worth the hassle, especially once ebay and paypal take their fair share from the listing and transaction. One might make a few dollars on Bulky, but the same issue as Vehicon applies. The profit margins are so minimal I doubt most would care.

Would be nice if they got out in the worth though, that's for sure.

I'm not sure my idea of "helping out a fellow collector" includes a hefty profit margin. Of course, there are folks who might rather buy from a member on here than some faceless ebay seller from who knows where. And, shipping and paypal fees aside, all money will go to the person who bought the thing. Last thing I bought from a person on here, I stuck in a few extra $ because with the exchange rate as it was, it wasn't a huge deal to me, and the guy was doing me a big favour.

Very much this. Many of us want the FE Bulkhead but don't want to pay the $100-plus prices on eBay. If someone in your region was willing to sell them at their local retail price, plus maybe a small convenience charge, they would have the adoration and business of all of us.

Not saying that's a bad idea, I'm just saying not everyone wants to do that unless they are familiar with the person. The guy I know in Singapore only enlightened me to the supply near him because he knows I collect the toys and offered to help if I needed anything. Guess part of what I was trying to get at is even upon reimbursing my friend for the cost of buying the figure, shipping it and covered the fee's of paypal so he wasn't losing anything, it ultimately costs about the same as on ebay (within a few dollars). So the nameless wonders of ebay are no different than anyone else selling you a figure unless, of course, you know and trust that person. The trust factor is really what you you'd be benefiting from.

A friend is willing to make little to nothing to help you out. Someone who doesn't know you, not as likely. I mean, yes, of course their are some collectors who wouldn't mind helping out other collectors they don't know for little or nothing, but you have to admit it's time consuming. One has to gather the goods, deal with the transaction(s), wrap everything up nicely and wait on line at the post office/shipping facilities.

Kind of why I don't bother selling any of my figures. Haha. Only did it once because I discovered a duplicate in my collection back in January and it was too late for Toys for Tots. Was nice to make my money back but next time I'll just shove it back into my closet and wait for Toys For Tots to start back up. Far less of a hassle that way.

Like you though I throw in some extra cash to thank the friend for their troubles in sending me a figure I can't find. It's not really intended to cover the exchange rate however. It's meant to be a courtesy, like a tip. If it's a friend who lives nearby it's one thing, but if it's a friend who lives afar (or in this case overseas) I feel they should be making something for going through the hassle of wrapping, shipping & writing out custom forms. I know I dislike the ordeal. It's not a "huge profit" as you said, but it is something I feel they deserve.


edit: @That Bot - I was looking at FE Bulkheads on ebay just yesterday, out of curiosity (I already own Takara's). There were several ranging from $70-85 and that's with shipping. At $50 in Singapore that's pretty much what you'll be spending when you factor in international shipping charges.

Yeah, you got me. I haven't checked Bulk's prices in a while, so last I remembered they were like $120 at the cheapest. I guess there's been some additional Asian shipments to decrease the rarity and thus lower the price, which is why your friend saw them shelfwarming. I'll see what I find at the convention I'm going to in a few weeks and if nothing, then I'll get one on eBay with no regrets.

Sorry, I have no means of shipping anything internationally, nor do I own a credit card to receive payment. :-(

Maybe you can check out the SG sightings thread here and ask someone to help you get um? Bulhead is $42.80 USD here, The deluxes are $22US. On Ebay FE bulkhead seems to go for $50 US, so it could possibly be cheaper buying from Ebay.

I would give my left nut to find those in a store instead of 12-20 Bumblebees, 1-2 various other Deluxes (usually Cliffjumper, often Wheeljack (though never at the same time as Cliffjumper), on rare occasions Soundwave and Ratchet), 3-5 Voyager OPs and 0-3 Voyager Megs.

I don't even want Hotshot, but just seeing on on the peg would at least give me hope that they hadn't just stopped ordering because of the yellow menace being overpacked and undersold.

I've only seen Knock Out once and Hot Shot twice and Vehicon not at all. I honestly believe wave 3 will not arrive any more than it has here in NY. Nobody is replenishing on these figures at all. Too many BBs. Hasbro is run by idiots. Plain and simple. I remember viewing a Hasbro rep on some footage of a 2012 Toy Fair and the guy seemed as though he had just read an informational brochure on TFs that morning before he hit the floor to entertain questions about the products. Unreal.

I got a case of Wave 3 from hasbrotoyshop.com….it was crushed, but the figs seem to be in decent order. I'm keeping a Vehicon, Hotshot and Knockout; if anyone wants one of what remains…if you are planning on opening it the package really shouldn't matter.

recently i was at toys r us and i asked them why they have not gotten any new TFs and the person i talked to said that stores are ordering avengers and spiderman stuff mostly. the stores are not interested in TFs right now.
