If it wasn't for this board and the very kind and helpful people who inhabit it, I'd have major holes in all aspects of my collection, and I've tried to do the same for others when I can. JD really has made collecting fun instead of (which, as today has shown, thanks to Hasbro, as usual) the increasingly headache inducing chore it can be at times. Thanks JD!
And count me in on the contest, whenever it starts later this week.
The whole situation with this set is just ridiculous and I can't wait to hear them try to defend their actions.
Knowing Hasbro, they will either blame the collectors for "not being enthusiastic enough to fly to SDCC and get the exclusive(s) there", or they will ignore it completely, acting like nothing whatsoever went wrong. Then, if they finally do have to address it (say, through the various Q&A websites asking the same question, similar to what was done earlier this year when all the sites sent the same distribution question regarding the SW line), they'll say that "consumer support for Indy in 2008 was very low" and that due to that, they will not be making more sets of the "lost" wave. Ironic that the wave has technically been "lost" twice now.
