So...where'd you go for lunch today?

--Oh nowhere, just sat here at my desk waiting for a link to an exclusive toy that didn't come up...Gawd I'm a dope! :lol:
I am very much interested in Botcon 2016 Customization Class Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet, willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I am guessing just a second general run maybe? They state sold at hasbro pulse.

They say in the article at the bottom that they had the wrong date before, and today is the new correct date.

...still not live though



The website originally said for preorder on July 2nd, but the correction at the bottom says July 3rd- That makes a bit more sense since tomorrow is the anniversary- Ill keep checking but I think we are 24hrs early!

After decades of collecting I have grown a lot of patience for the hunt, and even my own ineptness with interwebering, but Walcrunk.corn is the absolute worst!!!

And I have no patience for it. :lol:

The article reads:
UPDATE: July 2, 2020, 11:21 a.m. EDT An earlier version of this story said that pre-orders begin on July 3. That was incorrect; July 2 is when pre-orders open.

That's a good point. It's a little strange they wouldn't mention that in the article promoting the figure

If they are going with a theme, they should go all in and have it be $19.85 ;)

I'm expecting closer to $40 because Ectortron retailed for $50, didn't he?

I would also accept $20.15

but $19.65 or $18.65 might be too steep of a price cut for them

Oh Hasbro Corporate and Walmart would love you ;) . I thought of that also, probably closer to the truth, but I was trying to be unreasonably optimistic.

I'll Buy that for a dollar! hehehe


I am going to go out on a limb here and say that the preorder will finally got live in about two and a half hours from now. Because that's when I make my thirty minute drive home from work.

... my general luck anyway leads me to believe that.

Despite the correction listed at the end of the Mashable article, I am starting to think that maybe July 3rd is the day lol :HEADHURTS:

An hour of refreshing and still an "Error" page... I will make sure to get mine for October for sure. I am lucky my little bro picked Ectotron up for me for Father's Day.

I passed on Ectotron completely. It looks nice, but just just isn't in my wheelhouse of collecting. I was going to try for this just because of serendipitous circumstances. But they are becoming more complicated and my interest is fading fast...Same with the Top Gun fighter, I'll most likely pass on that as well.

I'm pretty much right there with you. We'll see if the shiny newness wears off before orders go live.

Expectation: log on at 10am PST (1pm EST), go to link, go to walmart website and order product

Reality: log on at 10am PST (1pm EST), go to link, link is broken, thus more effort involved (i.e. "complication") than expected. Do I keep refreshing? Is it really tomorrow (July 3rd at 1pm) as originally stated?....do I even care any more?....

Does that make sense now?

Yes, now that you have clarified that you meant the figures are becoming more complicated/more of a hassle to order.

The wording in your original post implied you thought the figures themselves were becoming more complicated.
