Going back to the figure, I wonder if the limited one was based on BttF1 and comes with that pole and the more common one will be based on BttF2 and won't.

Because one has Mr. Fusion and one doesn't. And the one in the limited edition box isn't shown with Mr. fusion.

They both come with it. The Mr. Fusion is on the bsck of the gun in robot mode, as is the pole. It's just two different displays set ups, like the Lego one from a few years back

If this sold out my interest is shot. Why would anyone be excited for October when this was a limited edition, they have to know most people want the limited edition. If Walmart was insisting on an exclusive Hasbro should've told them to go screw.

From my understanding, the only major difference is that the limited edition ones have numbered licsense plates, and a unique package, whereas "retail" won't have either

To be fair I'm looking forward to the October one because I don't care about limited editions and the like, I like to play with my toys and stuff the packaging into the nearest recycling bin :lol:

As for the exclusive thing, I think the same thing would have happened as long as the limited edition was a thing. That was the idea that should have been done away with. Just give Walmart it as a timed release.

If the rumours are true about the scale of the scalping, what's the best way to combat this? Aside from the obvious of course, that if no limited editions.

Soldout the instant I added it to my cart. Hope the Pulse version doesn't have a crumby deco.

If that's the only difference then I'd be fine missing the limited edition. I hope it is the only difference.

A physical license plate like a stand or key-chain or a special deco on the toy?

Well, hoped to get a set but.... :-(

The chest isn’t what I hoped (wanted more of a Jazz or Prowl look and have the headlights and grille be his moobs) but besides that, I’d love to have one! Guess I’ll wait for the more widely available October release and pray to God that they don’t pull a Fall of Cybertron Bruticus and make it in crazy colors, that’s the only reason I wanted the numbered release; there’s no guarantee it’s going to be the same one as the numbered one.

Some part of me thinks they went back up for sale and weren't actually sold out. Given that someone said they were able to add to cart. I had given up yesterday, so I missed it. What a fiasco.

Aside from less annoying emails that I'm sure they get, what would be the point of that? This just says to me it was a good idea on paper but they didn't think things through enough

They could focus on making cheaper kid friendly figures that they wouldn't have to worry about being "good" because kids just want the characters. I mean I really have a big conspiracy theory but I also like people not thinking I'm crazy.

So after trying yesterday to order and the link not working I tried again today to see it was now no longer available. After checking eBay if there were any preorders there I was completely disappointed to see people charging 700$ for this toy. Not sure what happened with Walmart’s preorder but one would have assumed there we be a purchase limit as to this is a limited run. Here’s to Hasbro releasing more numbers of this toy. Definitely wanted him when I learned they were making it. 29.99$ was a very fair price. Any of you guys have luck grabbing a copy of him?

If we want to strike a blow against the scalpers, a good start would be to block EVERY seller of this figure on Ebay. Block them so you won't even be tempted to do business with them. If they are selling them, they got it using shady tactics. Hit them in the pocketbook

Unfortunately the vast majority of people who do business with these sellers shun social media groupings and wouldn't know or don't care the figure has been marked up.

This is probably old news to everyone, but I need to vent.

If ANY of you have this guy's preorder on ebay right now. You're the worst kind of person on Earth.

I swear, It's almost like Hasbro did the limited release just for the scalpers. It was only $30, it was only available on Walmart's website, in the US only, and for some reason you could order up to 12 of them. Now they're all sold out. However there's good news! If you want your own you can still get them! They're on ebay for upwards of $600. Thanks Hasbro, thanks Walmart.

EDIT: (AND ANOTHER THING)

Also I hope none of you buy from one of these scalpers. I don't know how you'd get the money, but you're just as bad as them for supporting them.

Funny thing is that I wasn't going to buy this guy. I was going to wait for the mass release in October. I'm just super pissed about how it was handled, the f'd up preorder tech issues, and now I'm mad at the scalpers.
