Hong Kong ACG-Con Exclusive Metroplex would like to have a word with your accountant...

Yeah, saw that. Price is a little stiff. I think I'll settle for the normal retail release.

managed to snag one but it seriously sold out in the time it took to pay for it. BTW that comic2013 code for 10% off did not work

quick side note I noticed that the ACG con metroplex preorder, which is virtually identical to the SDCC metroplex, was still in stock at BBTS at the price of $250 while the SDCC metroplex was sold out at the price of $290...... LOL,WTF?

oh I almost forgot F#@K you scalper B#&CHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :DANCE: :DANCE: :DANCE: :DANCE: :DANCE:

I was fortunate enough to be checking the site at the end of a meeting at work and got lucky that they came online right as I was heading back to my office. I scored all 3 TF items and Boba Fett.

Boba Fett sold out first, then the Magic Gathering cards, then Metroplex, then Gem, then Deadpool figures. Surprised Shockwave's Lab is still available since it is one of the 30th anniversary items.

Metroplex gone within half an hour? Not entirely unexpected, but damn, that's annoying. I've had the Hasbro website open in a tab for the last few days, refreshing a search for "Metroplex" every few (conscious) hours... And it still slipped through my fingers...

Ah well. Suppose I'll keep an eye on it just in case, and if no miracles happen, I'll settle for the retail version.

It was about 10-15 minutes for 'Plex to sell out...

Was filming a review and had my phone on silent. Missed everything. I really wanted that Fett.

Which is, theoretically, within "half an hour."

I never understand why they would make something like this with such a limited quantity, and without a definitely announced sale time. Seems like a formula for pissing off the fanbase. I mean, I know that they shouldn't make an overly excessive amount where they will be stuck with unsold stock... But for such a high demand item, wouldn't they rather have our money by having us buy a more expensive version direct from them? Now everyone that missed out on this will have to settle for the retail version... Which costs less, and is sold through other people... So less money for Hasbro.

So... I guess... Shut up and take less of my money? Okay... Since I have no choice... If you insist, Hasbro, you can have less of my money.

I managed to get one while I was driving. Not literally of course, that would be dangerous. I was coming from an appointment, refreshed my phone browser; there it was (Metroplex), I pulled over, grabbed Kindle, placed order, OWNED!!! I will say that this was the first time that I had ever been successful doing this. I, like many of you, suffered from lack of sleep over the last two days. This was a great hunt though. Reminded of my hunt for rare toys in Korea days in the late 90's to mid 2000's.

yeah you'll find that Hasbro does many things that take advantage of rather than cater to its customers. kind of retarded but then again we are talking about the same company that made a deluxe megatron and several leader/weaponizer bumblebees......

It is appropriate as well that Hasbro's transformers brand would celebrate its 30th anniversary be releasing thirty repaints, retools, straight up carbon copies of earlier releases, inflating the price and then making them exclusive and therefore much more difficult to get. Its appropriate because that is their entire business strategy apparently.

you must laugh at the "collect them all" on by the number on each "thrilling thirty" figure because, well, its really, really, really stupid. I feel as though the third party companies are doing a better job of celebrating the 30th anniversary by releasing all these BA combiners, sixshots, and more! AND THEIR NOT REPAINTS AND WE ALL HAVE THE SAME SHOT AT OWNING THEM AND THEIR PRICED THE SAME AS THESE CRAPPY THRILLING THIRTY FIGURES!!!!!

Damnit, I waited diligently all morning until almost 2:00 PM EST, then I had to actually do some work. Figures.

Is there any hope of some remaining CS stock popping back up later today or tomorrow after they check their numbers and such? I seem to remember hearing that SDCC Bruticus appeared again last year for a few minutes after the initial sell-out, though I could just be grasping at any ray of hope now.

Figures. Been sitting in front of the PC for 2 darn days waiting for these thing to come available, fiancee calls me to pick up her friend from the airport because her family is too tired to do so, and in the span of being gone one hour the damn thing sells out. Typical... :KREMZEEK:

Yea, I've been refreshing for days, but missed it too.

Oh well, less $$$ spent.

Didn't see the Joe/TF crossover set at all, did those sell out at SDCC?

I picked up the Shockwave set, a couple Iron Man dudes and the voyager Magnus.

Oh, the code DID work, just not on the SDCC item (how dippy is that???)

Congrats to those who managed to get the exclusives they wanted.

As for me, I'm happy with my retail Prime Shockwave, I don't need the Titan Guardians, and I'll going for the retail Metroplex. :D

I was pretty pumped with the SDCC Metroplex, but I think I'll be perfectly happy with the retail version.

Plus... you know repro labels is gonna make a killing ;)

Well, I have been looking forward to seeing what Reprolabels would be doing with Metroplex... But while I suspect they may be able to chrome up the legs, the face (which is the chrome I was more interested in) would be harder to do with stickers. Also, the thing I wanted most (the second red gun) would be hard to do with stickers...

I am very fortunate, my friend hooked me up with a comic con Metroplex, I got Shockwave on HTS, and I don't care for the guardians. I would have picked up the Guardians if they made them actually look like the old action masters toys or if they made them more poseable.
