Grabbed 34 to get the free shipping. If anyone dares, you can actually add up to 999 to your cart. I think they have tons of these in stock. Perhaps another promotion coming up?

I might have to grab a few more. Put my last batch on BL for some ridiculous amount thinking they would never sell and they actually did.

I sure hope the deal is good since I never got a chance to buy these figs at $2.99. I've never had TRU cancel an order due to stock issues and I hope that this doesn't happen.

All you people who ordered 30+ of them should be ashamed of yourselves. >:( Leave some for other people! I can't believe they're already gone! I'm just glad I logged onto FBTB this morning and saw the announcement, so I was able to order one for my collection. Just ONE. The only one I own. The only one I need.

Scalpers like you are the reason other people are going to have to pay higher prices for them, because they never got the opportunity to buy one at retail. And that's just what you're hoping for, right? Some of the people here are so greedy.

Let's keep a couple of things in mind here:

1. There's already a thread for drawing your line in the sand on this issue.

2. You have no idea what the intention was behind any of those large orders. Maybe there will be 30 lucky kids at some children's hospital very soon. Now who should feel shame?

3. There's already a thread for drawing your line in the sand on this issue.

For that matter, maybe the Lego company should be ashamed of itself for producing these in such limited quantities that people are able to monopolize the supplies that are released or maybe TRU should be ashamed of itself for allowing people to buy them in unlimited quantities.

1. I don't care. My issue is relevant to THIS thread, which is why I posted it here. Especially after reading that the previous two replies were by people who were sad they missed out. There is such a thing as over-moderating a forum.

2. I HIGHLY doubt that. And so do you. In fact, reading fubar's previous post confirms my assumption.

3. see 1

4. see 1

5. see 1

I'm pretty amazed that there is someone here trying to get on MY case for sticking up for others.

MisterFubar, your funny did not go unnoticed...for what it's worth, I got giggle out of it. As for the comment by ItsTwentyBelow, I kinda have to side with him...kinda. I have sold sets on Bricklink myself and made huge profits (like 7283). I didn't go to Target and clean them out when I had the chance, I bought 2 extra with the intention of keeping them both sealed, for my collection.

Anywho, I was surprised and disappointed to see them come and go so fast too.

Grow up. I missed out too. Good for them for getting here first. If you're mad you didn't get any, send an email to toys r us....don't blame other people for being smart and cashing in on an opportunity that most others would also do.

Really strange to see these popping up AGAIN, when they came out the first time on the magnets, the packaging said limited edition.
