Had to stop by another Walmart today and checked the toys. Guy who worked over there said they sell out asap and they only got one shipment. How are toys made from an 80s cartoon selling out so damned fast?Scalper scum.
Well I can safely say they all have no dick.Had to stop by another Walmart today and checked the toys. Guy who worked over there said they sell out asap and they only got one shipment. How are toys made from an 80s cartoon selling out so damned fast?Scalper scum.
I just got mine in from eBay. $80 total. $10 shipping. Not too bad, but better than never seeing these again. Pretty radical.See I wouldn't mind spending 80 total if I saw them. 10 shipping and 70 for the figures. That's not bad at all since it's like 2.50 more per figure if not factoring the shipping. Did you just keep a close eye on the buy it now listings for when a good one came up or did you get lucky on bidding?
That's a reasonable finder's fee. I made a dozen offers for $80 and none of the seller's bit. Good work. That's not supporting a scalper.Yeah I agree. A few dollars per figure covering the cost and hassle of finding them, putting them up, shipping, that's fair. Ebay has some up for like 150+! That's 10x the cost of ONE figure! Just completely unreasonable. I keep checking ebay in hopes I stumble across an ok listing. Even made an offer for 85 on one just out of desperation which was of course auto-declined. I still have my old figures with some new proton packs I bought from a poster here years go. They're really showing their age from discoloration and the plastic being sticky though. So a brand new set would have been really nice.
So about two weeks until the preorders are supposed to ship. Any bets on if they actually will?Why wouldn't they?
This is almost as bad as the toilet paper panic buying.The two circumstances aren't remotely comparable.
I appreciate it's disappointing the Kenner classics stuff has sold out in a number of locations (thanks to a combination of scalpers and limited supplies), but we're not talking about an essential household item being unnecessarily horded by panicked shoppers.
Sales for the figures must be slowing down. I've been able to spot the figures as "Preorder now" on Wal-mart several times today. Not all of them at once but when they have popped up they've been available for a few minutes at a time.Thanks for the heads up. Have you seen them all go up at one point or another so you were able to grab the whole set? I've checked the site now and then and the listings go from not there, to there, but when you click them it says sold out. Was going to give up but maybe I'll keep an eye on them still.
Anyway, will just seek out USA variants.
