The good news on that? Hasbro is apparently paying attention to what was hard to obtain and still has demand. All 4 of those you mentioned got second runs, along with a few others like Redwing and the spy patrol 3. That is a great trend I'd like to see continue.


I didn't know Redwing got an extra run.


I guess I'm not sure myself either. Maybe it was another existing stock thing, but in any case Entertainment Earth had him earlier this year and maybe a few other online retailers. I though it was a second run, but maybe it is more of whatever happened here with TC and Skywarp.

This isn't a rerelease of TC/SW, it's existing stock.


Do we know that for sure? Entertainment Earth that had them actually in stock (briefly) for sure, but BBTS is pre-ordering and due in July and you can order up to 24. No way that can be existing stock.

Yeah, that July release is definitely a new run for both BBTS and EE to list them for that time, and not long after Scorponok's rerelease. We'll see if it shows up in more places.

While I didn't want them, I never saw TC and Skywarp, and my store never even set out a tag for them. WE just got a bunch of clones that were clearanced out for $7.49

Here's a quick bit of hope for anyone still struggling to find Thrust. One of the local Targets in my area had NOTIHNG for Earthrise on the shelves as of this past Friday. Today, however, they had three or four Thrusts on the shelves, along with a small smattering of Kingdom product, and a whole glut of Buzzworth Bumblebee trash toys. So, Target may still be getting their exclusives out slowly but surely, even though the Generations line has moved on to the next chapter.

And if you don't mind paying full retail still, Kroger Marketplace (groceries + toys, clothes and other stuff) has plenty of Deluxes and Micromasters left. Wave 1 Deluxe and Wave 2 Micros, but still...
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Unless it's something Starseeker put together himself to look legit enough to look like something official.

The leaks for SS86 Coronation Screamer say he's got remolded wings & shoulders and that he got pushed back to 2022, and those shoulder and crown parts look 3D-printed to me, so I'm pretty sure that's just an ER Screamer with fan-made parts.

Plus, y'know, the individual who posted it blatantly said it's the Earthrise one when SS86 got mentioned, that seems pretty open-and-shut to me.

Because there's a Studio Series 86 Screamer on the way to recreate the coronation scene and its just Earthrise Starscream (with some new retooling.

Nemesis Primal untangled it all above quite nicely. Good job on the parts by the way.

Just received a notice from Amazon that the GO Botropolis set has been pushed back to March 7.... :(
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Also interested in The 2002/03 Takara Micromaster releases (Sixliner,Sixwing,Sixtrain) willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Thanks to accumulated giftcards between Christmas and birthday I was able to purchase an Earthrise Scorponok for myself off eBay.
WANT:
Cybertron Galvatron, with both backpack halves and the claw weapon, at a price not to exceed $42 total

It's funny how many people seem to believe that the less conservative party is going to make the country into (more of) a fascist surveillance state. Especially since the news services claiming this simultaneously claim the left will turn the country into an anarchistic hippy land with no social and moral controls.

Thanks! It was actually five days ago, altho only yesterday that I finally got the Scorponok purchase locked in.

Getting ER Scorponok is at least some consolation for the fact that the Cybertron Galvatron I bought (for $29.99 plus shipping) just shy of a month ago probably isn't coming (based on the empty eBay shop and the 5 latest feedbacks for the seller being "No messages, never shipped" vs. the feedbacks before that being full of praise for fast shipping, I'm worried the seller may be indisposed or worse).

So I guess other than the 3 remaining GO sets from Amazon, we can call Earthrise "Done" at this point, seeing as how new stock seems to be all Kingdom. I'll just say at the outset, I did get all my wants from the line, but I did not see them all physically in stores. It's still a litmus test I like to do. I know online shopping is becoming more prominent (in fact it was the only way I was able to get any wave 3 ER), but that is the problem, To me, if the only way to get something that is a non-exclusive, is online, then that is a sign to me that something is definitely wrong. Now of course, I'm taking the Pandemic into account for sure, but as we know in previous years there have still been issues with Distribution, with that said, here is my final tally:

ER Sightings -
All Battlemasters Sighted
All Micromasters sighted
Deluxes (Only wave 1 and 2), -Wave 3- Never sighted at retail
Voyagers Only wave 1 and 2 (Quintesson Judge and Megatron never sighted at retail)
Leaders- All Sighted
CC Skylynx- sighted multiple times
Titan Scorponok sighted one time, only 1 in stock

Target Exclusives
Decepticon Clones Sighted 3 times, multiple stock of each
Villains 2 pack (Seen once, only 1 in stock)
Runabout (Seen once, only 1 in stock)
Thrust (Seen once, only 1 in stock)

Kingdom "so far" seems to be doing better, as just today I sighted deluxe wave 1 at a local walmart, making my sightings in-store of Wave 1 now complete, and this is just the end of January.

My 'feeling' is that something funky happened around Xmas time though as I swear during the lead-up and all the way until Xmas Eve when I was last out, there wasn't crap on shelves and then two days later the good stuff started popping. This is in-store, all my goodies that arrived for the holiday were online purchases. But for Target exclusives Runabout, Thrust, and I'm throwing in Leadfoot here, only Thrust ever appeared on shelves for me even though all three had spaces labeled for them, pegs for Runabout and Thrust with shelf space for Thrust. Then there was that pic I posted way back with about 24 or 30 sets of Clones discounted half off, what was up with that.

Either way, it was surprising and disappointing that here in the midwest (KCMO) I never saw any wave 2 or 3 in stores... Except for the random handful of 2 different deluxe figures I saw at Aldi.
The Decepticon Clone 2 pack was plentiful for a while, but never went on any sort of sale.

Yeah, I am more on board now with the idea that the pandemic had something to do with this.
It's still just weird... KC isn't the biggest city, but I'm not exactly in some small rural town that only has 1 Walmart and a Pizza Hut. I'm roughly 20 minutes north of downtown, 20 minutes northeast of the Chiefs and Royals stadiums...
And I checked multiple Targets and Walmarts since back in early November.

Kingdom and Studio Series has made it here. Although since the first couple rounds of shipments (I'm guessing there... It may have been 3, but I doubt any more than that), it's back to close to nothing.

I won't be shocked if somehow ER wave 2 or 3 trickle in... But seems very unlikely at this point.

Oh, on a similar note, Walmarts around here have had almost no new Netflix figures. The closest one to me literally only has Cyberverse stuff.

Not just with production, but also the need to supply aka how many people can go out and buy stuff, and what stuff is bought. The focus shifted from buying luxury items to hoarding toilet paper and disinfectants before local lockdowns. :roll:

On top of this, general consumer habits for non-perishables like toys shifted pretty greatly from in store to online during the pandemic, especially if free shipping is available. It seems like all the online retailers have sold through their pre-order limits much quicker this year. Target likely got hit especially hard for waves 2 and 3 with them going up for pre-order during the BOGO sale. I would assume that Target and Walmart as companies planned to buy a certain number of each wave total for online and in store orders combined. If they exceed their pre-order expectations, and only order the same amount as originally planned, then there is less to go into the actual stores. That could explain especially in Targets case some of the cancellations and lack of appearance in stores.

Motto: "Why are Beast Hunters Ultimate/Dragon Attack Optimus' sword and shield so hard to find?"
And of course the slimeball scalpers were taking a fair bit of advantage of people being cooped up.
WANT:
Cybertron Galvatron, with both backpack halves and the claw weapon, at a price not to exceed $42 total

It's funny how many people seem to believe that the less conservative party is going to make the country into (more of) a fascist surveillance state. Especially since the news services claiming this simultaneously claim the left will turn the country into an anarchistic hippy land with no social and moral controls.
