Glad BBTS Was able to secure them.

Now I wonder which retailer is willing to take a chance on these if any.

Hope everyone gets one who wanted them! 24 sets per person.

Preordered as well. I also pre-ordered an extra two Skrapnals with Reflector. Now I can have a proper G1 cartoon representation of the Reflector trio.

I feel a little bad for the folks that gave in to the (compoletely unfounded) panic earlier and bought the Cosmos and Swerve assortments from eBay at ridiculous mark-ups.

I bet the people who paid 63.99 a pair for these are kicking themselves right about now......

I will wait until HTS gets them. Not big on preorders myself.

Well, at least you have them in hand and can enjoy them right now. The rest of us will have to wait until "Late April" at the earliest.

My cosmos has a gimp arm :( I will tell everyone this. They are Amazing! Really cool figures and fun transformations. After playing with Swerve I am really looking forward to Gears!

[rant] Weren't you also the one insisting that these were absolutely, definitively canceled, stating it as fact and causing people to rush to buy these off eBay? That's the only issue I have with how you presented this whole thing. It was irreponsible to say that before Hasbro gave the definitive word on it, which they did, at ToyFair. I understand all the trouble you went to to find out about their availability, but it's better to be wrong than to rush to judgement, state rumors as fact and cause others to give in to hype and hysteria. [/rant]

Ahem. I preordered these as well, and hope they show up at retail before the preorders are filled. Either way, I get them, but if I can save on shipping, I'll take it.

Yup. He had hard evidence from rock-solid sources that these figures were cancelled.

I put in my preorder like everyone else...That shipping is KILLER!! :michaelbay: Drives up the cost by nearly a third!!! Sheesh... Pile of looted it with the supposed Arcee and Chromia.

One saving grace is if HTS posts them before they come in I will order from there instead... Or they may even pop up in stores before then, who knows? :-?

Kinda wanted Cosmos by himself... More of a Gears than Swerve fan.

Lmao to the people who paid 70 bucks. For that you could have just gone with the igear versions or maketoys swerve. These things are worth no more than 15 bucks a pop. So I ordered them just for fun, not because I take legends seriously for my classics shelf.

That's what I'm doing: bundling them with Arcee, Chromia, and Rattrap.

If you can spread that shipping cost out over 6-7 figures, it's no more than the gas you'd burn driving from store to store, especially since it will probably take a lot of trips to find these.

When they show up at retail outlets other then discount stores or Toys R Us let us continue the conversation. Until then let us rejoice they are being sold somewhere.

Still none for sale on ebay currently and they have been showing up in Canadian retail already.

Of course the only one I was considering, Cosmos, is pre-sold out. I just love the age of pre-ordering and pre-selling out before the damn things even ship. "We don't have it yet, but it's sold out."

Well they're available through retailers now; that's the point. Why don't TRU and discount stores count as "retail" in your definition?

Nice, glad I was able to get a preorder in. I grabbed them as soon as I got the Preorder Alert from BBTS this morning.

However, since I live in Canada I'll grab them at retail if they show up in my area before the preorder, and then cancel. No sense waiting longer than I have to! Plus it'll open availability for those who wanted it from BBTS.

Got the Tailgate wave in pre-order as that one seems a little sketch, coming out right before the Movie line drops.

Man, if I had the money to throw, I'd order Cosmos and Shrapnel.

Then again, I'd also get Generations Armada Starscream and the rest of his wave-mates too... and Metroplex... and MP11 Starscream... and some vintage figures...

...I have a lot on my bucket list, with very little money. As you can see, that's an issue. :oops:

Because they are specialty retail. They do not carry the same items as Target , Walmart and Kmart usually do. They are Retail and do carry certain cancelled or so thought cancelled items like the First Edition , GDO , Power Core Combiner and Reveal The Shield Lines as well as Skyquake from the Prime Line.

Well, in technicality, those lines weren't cancelled per se... and Power Core Combiners had a pretty good run as well (kinda wish I had gotten more of them besides the Bombshock set).

Well, I grabbed all four. Even though I already have a Cosmos, Swerve, and Shrapnel for my Classics shelf, it's not this Cosmos, Swerve, and Shrapnel. Heck I even got a Reflector already too.

I really needed just Tailgate but while I was ordering, one thing led to another and now my wallet hates me again.
