I work nights as well, but I got up to take a wiz and checked my phone. Glad I did b/c a buddy of mine texted me and I put the pre-order in. (Had a problem with the Verified by Visa system & my debit card, but after dealing with Chase by phone for 20 min., I got it resolved. I was so pissed & thought it was gonna go out of stock, but i got it) Nevertheless I'm stoked. I hope u can get one man. Check the news like a hawk & when the listing shows up again, sign up to be emailed when it's available/in stock to order again.
I really like the old MP Prime, but my friend who has the Takara version MP-10 says its top notch. When I visit him at work next month I'll see. (He also has the Igear Ironhide & Rachet, new MP Starscream coronation, and Mattel's collector's edition Voltron!! -the big one! Can't wait!!)
Star wars fans who want speederbikes: don't fret, the BOGO 50% is on again this week. Hunt avidly.
And now at the risk of death by tomatoes being launched at me - I pre-ordered MP Optimus yesterday, got MP TC the first week it was out in CA with some help (i owe that dude, seriously), and the weekend before that I was able to get the new Speederbike and scout set with a BOGO 75% coupon another friend sent me (owe that guy too). I got 2 bikes for under $30 -including tax, instead of $47. $15 a piece! Now I'm caught up with everything I've wanted this year except for a TVC Starkiller and 1 more Speederbike set (opener).
I love my friends!! Destroy all scalpers!!!!!
