By a very large ROC Viper....

I also had this nightmare of being at a Toys R Us on July 4th and the shelves were bare! I was so mad...

I dunno what happned today, I just all of a sudden got extremley excited about the impending field hunt for new Joes. I guess it is the lack of Joes to hunt or maybe just new stuff (even some of the stuff I did not want I am starting to want)... like now LOL.

So the question is, is this stuff going to be pouring off the shelf like transformers merchandise (unlike the 25th stuff did on 2 pegs), Like at least 2 sections of figures or more? Or Is it going to be 1 row again. It woul dbe nice to not have to go 200 miles around me and hunt for 19 hours a day, but if need be I am in!

I don't know about quantities, but I just got Shipwreck, Stone, Storm Shadow, Covergirl, and desert Duke off of ebay for 7.75 each (plus shipping). I'm stoked!

The Walmart I work for calls for a 6 foot section. I'm hoping that we got our ROC stock in tonight as it's getting too close for comfort. I'm gonna post once it all comes in to give people an idea of how much stuff they may see at their local Walmarts.

The 25th line began as a test run, an experiment on a limited scale.
That's why the first few waves were so scarce. Don't worry, there will be some short packed figures and variants that you'll be buying on ebay, it is Hasbro after all, but for the most part, these RoC toys will be abundant.

You are the man. It must be nice, can you buy the toys before they even hit shelves, do you get first pick?

Not overly worried about the variants...just as long as there is multiples of every figure (some for customs)...not like 5 vipers and 1 scarlet per case, it would be nice to see like each box has 1of each figure with 8 figures per assortment in it or something, I could not stand the assrotment setups for the 25th line. 2 Wild Bills, 2 Buzzers, 1 Bazooka and 1 Snake Eyes with timber does not make a good assortement !

Wish I could, but no. Have to wait for the release date as it is set into the main computer in Bentonville, Ark. As far as first pick I usually wait till they go onto the shelves.

My only concern for ROC figures is getting an Agent Helix. She looks awesome!

Got 2 MOC Agent Helix from w_s toys and they are awesome. She fits in well with the 25th/Modern era and looks more Resolute than Movie. The finished poduct has good paint app. She doesn't have the racoon eyes like the protos that popped up first.

I just have to say this is surprising, with all the negative sh!t you've talked about the movie.

Yeah I want a Helix, she should have been Dialtone in Resolute instead of that quicky girl they had. Would be cool if she was Dialtones Daughter or something or Mainframes...think Helix is going ot be 3rd or 4th wave?

What? People can't change? We are set in stone for ever? hmm maybe I missunderstood you guys...

This is about the toys, not the Movie anyways.

ws_toys? the one that has them for $30? I almost caved and paid that, but ended up spending $19 on a Resolute Roadblock from unitedwell... another AWESOME figure. I'd buy Helix at $20, probably, if I could get it a month or so early.

I think she is planned around those waves. They have Hawk, Flash, Baroness, Viper Elite, and C Eel on the back. The only thing I don't like is the filecards. They are short and cheesy. I may even get another one to use as a Zarana custom. The head is perfect for it in my opinion.

Yeah, I have built a third Display case for the movie figurs I choose to pick up (not all of them mind you) to put all of these in opened up, not keeping thier boxes, I don't have room for them anyway and they won't match my 25th/modern carded figure wallpaper LOL

Yeah I am starting to be thankful they are indeed comptibale figures parts wise...not some 9.5 inch figure or 2.24583cm versions...dunno why though I don't have anything else to make really have done em all mostly from 83-90s that I liked, just hoping to piece together some awsome cobra figures they just did not realize in the parts they had.

I pretty much got what I wanted in advance. I just want the Bravo vehicles. I almost caved and bought them on ebay tonight for 80 bucks. But they'll be everywhere before you know it.

I'm waiting for the later waves with Night Adder and Volcano Viper aka Secto/Toxo viper.

I think I like that Firefly in your sig pic! Not too keen on the goggles, but the rest looks cool.

I don't like the reactive armor ones. Otherwise, if its a character we haven't seen updated (Cover girl, Heavy duty, thunder), or a new character (Sgt. Stone, speed Metal, helix), or a nice update of an existing character (Grunt, Scarlett, possibly others) I'll get it.

I didn't really start to get excited until I saw Resolute Snake Eyes in ROC packaging. That figure opened up my mind... if they can stick Resolute SE in an ROC package then they can do that with anyone. To quote Andy Dufresne from Shawshank Redemption, "Hope... it is the best of things."

I hope Resolute Snake Eyes is as blue as it is in my dreams...
