I see that MP Soundwave all the time. It's Devastator who's missing here.
You sure it's Soundwave with his 5 cassettes? He hasn't been in distribution for a while and was fairly hard to find nationally based on the TF boards. You should buy up whatever you see and sell them on Ebay for profit - one just sold today for $249.
Oh! That one. Isn't there another Soundwave out now that's orange and actually plays music? I guess that's the one I meant. Too many names to keep track of for every toy lines now. I did see that MP Soundwave once and that was it.
They could, but I feel the sense would be "damned if they do, damned if they don't." They'd get more online purchases, yes, but then we'd get fans that are waiting to find them in stores complaining that they can't.
If more collector's were able to preorder online why would there be more complaints about not finding them in stores?
I guess my thinking is not everyone would be able to get a pre-order or don't buy online because they don't want to pay shipping, want MOC, want to see the paint apps first before getting one, etc, that they are waiting for the to see it in person at the store. So if TRU has only 20 cases available and pre-sell 10 cases, have 15 stores and give remaining 10 cases to random 10 stores (maybe 8 if an extra case went to each of the two big market stores), means there isn't enough for every store or the market in general... meaning someone would miss out due to shortage and distribution.
Or maybe just put up your preorder when you say you're going to put up your preorder $%*#! TRU.
As Jeff posted above, they did put the preorder up when they said, so you can't be mad at TRU that you assumed by meant on on. You do know what assume means, right? Relax, Justin, you'll find them in stores in a month (hopefully. Hard to have hope with the lack of product since the 4th). But in the end, it's only a toy to be bitter about this.
