    Yeah I quicky dropped those ReAction things. They are as overpriced as their Ultimates figures, which I also dropped.

They aren't some small company anymore and ironically, when they were, they were selling 5POA figures for $10 a pop. Now that they have loads of capital, they charge $20 for the very same figures. Ridiculous - they are making money hand over fist on collector's backs. $50 action figures are such a joke. They are in no way that valuable - unfortunately, many people still buy them because of the properties that they have exclusivity to. Such a shame, the figures look great. Don't they realize that if they priced them better people would buy multiples and entire waves? It's just so stupid. Sell a few at a higher cost but don't sell that many, or sell a ton at a lower cost and still make it up on the back end.
    i agree that the prices are ridiculous and thats why i dont buy their product. but every company knows their equilibrium point of price vs quantity and im sure they figured out thats the point they maximize profits. just shows alot of people dont mind dropping $50 on a figure. again for me id rather buy other things i collect for cheaper, for those that enjoy it all the power to them.

    Itís all I collect, so to me itís reasonable. Few Thundercats a year, few Turtles a year, the odd Mythic Legion. Doesnít end up much different from when I used to play more video games. But toys usually sell for more than what you paid, while video games rarely ever do.
    Please check out my custom figures. The first few stink but I get better.

    I also wrote a fanfic. See the fanfic board. At least four people like it.

    so i got a shipping notice last week that powercon exclusives were shipping. However, it doesnt show them picked up yet. Did anyone else actually have their order shipped. Giving the notice and doing nothing with it just gets us excited prematurely and confused. Dont say your shipping if you actually dont.

    Same thing here. Maybe they jumped the gun sending out emails or FedEx is to blame, I dunno. Some people definitely already received theirs. Hopefully theyíll start to move sometime this week.

    With staffing issues, probably on both the warehouse/fulfillment side and with Fedex, I have had packages from multiple online retailers sitting in shipped/awaiting carrier pickup status for days and sometimes weeks before there is any tracking movement.

    Yep, Faker and the Horde set now show some movement. Itís odd that the Grayskull pack didnít also go out with everything else considering theyíre all from the same order.

    My Grayskull set was supposed to be here today, but the FedEx truck that left a depot less than 2 hours from our local hub at 8pm yesterday apparently did not arrive this morning before the trucks went out, so looks like tomorrow.

    I have two packages out for delivery today, but have not received any notice of movement on Secretes of Grayskull (which I'm assuming the second one is).

    I order quite a number of things from Hasbro Pulse, and while I appreciate their reliability, they're notorious for shipping quite late in shipping. This is a pleasant experience comparatively speaking.

    Haha, not enough coffee just yet today. I meant to say Hasbro is notorious for shipping later than the vendors it works with (I have preorders with them not shipping until February for products hitting shelves now). So the timeliness of Mattel's shipping is pleasant by comparison.

    Um well thatís interesting. I never ordered anything from them that wasnít initially an exclusive to Pulse. So Iím pretty much at their mercy until they ship my stuff. Good to know though.

    Man, they send the Horde in a box big enough to contain all of the PowerCon stuff.

    Oh, let me clarifyÖ My Horde pack was sent in a box big enough for everything, with a ton of packing bubblesÖ all on the top of the box. SMH

    Nothing on the sides or bottom.

    My Faker set came in a properly sized box. As for what you got, I would not be happy. Hopefully this isnít the norm and omg I can only imagine if this happens to anyone that attended the Con with plans to pick up their orders.

    My Secrets of Grayskull was shipped in a box so large I initially thought they'd flubbed and sent me a second Horde set. Holy cow they're losing money on shipping (but hey it was very well protected, that's for sure!)
