I'm actually contemplating getting the MP Rodimus Prime in addition to the Commandos.

Apparently TRU did not place a limit when they put Hot Rod up early early this morning and people (the many that couldn't get just 1) are pointing the finger at BBTS who conveniently doubled the price on him this morning to $120.

Kinda odd that TRU is playing the SDCC game this year, but it's welcome (even though they're dirty and steal stuff right out of your cart just like HTS does)

Oh and I have no interest in the commandos   :)

It's funny that you bring up BBTS.

I'm willing to bet that Brian's Toys will have plenty of the Commandos, Revenge of the Jedi 12-packs and Indy "Lost Wave" 6-packs, post SDCC.

I would love to see Hasbro and DeRetard explain how that is possible.

I am usually a big supporter of BBTS but this is just wrong doubling the price. It's a real turn off.
I am not too concerned with acquiring the Commandos but the DS set was something I really wanted. This was so predictable it's not even funny.

Commandoes are my focus...  I cannot imagine they'll be tough to get, but you never know I guess.

Is it possible that these were already up and are now out of stock?

According to scum they were.

Well - when I got in to work today, I went from the Main TRU page to that preview page and I've been refreshing the stupid preview page all day - turns out that the preview page was nothing and if you now go back to the main page and click that same icon/image for SDCC, you're taken to a different page where they list all of the SDCC items like an online store.

So I guess I've missed the Republic Commandos...  >:(

$13 a piece not counting shipping...  Looks like they're a Chinese exclusive now.  I'll pass on them ultimately if this is the case.  Hasbro can just cater to shorter run exclusives and stuff, and I'll just not buy things like that I think.

The hobby's going to be too much of a pain in the ass though, if things like this don't show up again, and I'll just drift away from it over time I suppose.

I'll hold out hope that more are coming.

Same here - and I've been consistently buying 2 of every item since Hasbro started the modern line. And for some items even more than 2 of every item.

If collecting Hasbro Star Wars becomes the same kind of pain in the ass that collecting Gentle Giant or Sideshow Star Wars is, then like Jesse said, I will just drift away from having any interest in this line.

Thanks a lot DeRetard!

So wait... it already came and went?  I started looking at the site around 10am CST, saw Lion-O and some other stuff and just thought the SW and TFers stuff wasn't listed yet.  They were already sold out?  Lame.  :-\ 

And a big-FU to BBTS if they indeed did buy up a huge chunk of stock to flip at twice the price.  Usually they are pretty stand-up place, but when it comes to store exclusives, they can be big-time scalpers - their excursions into the Twin Cities stores to pillage exclusives for their on-line shop are legendary around these parts.  :(

Don't forget to throw in Brian's Toys too Jeff - I'm sure they'll have all of the SDCC exclusives in their online store for double the price.
