Has anyone seen human alliance sideswipe?

Postby Karl13 » Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:46 pm

Is this out in NZ retailers yet or has anyone got the inside word on when?

Much appreciated. Cheers

I wouldn't get to excited, he's not nearly as cohesive as HA BB. Has a huge car parts backpack, more so than the deluxe. :( . I'll wait for a sale personally.

Cheers soundblaster. Looks like omegaprime has nabbed him.

Yeah i've seen on the reviews the dudes sporting an impressive backpack but I'm digging the scale of the HA line. Bumblebee next to leader prime is a good time. Barricade will be the holy Grail of this line! And maybe leader starscream if the rumours are true.

There's nothing "going on". No one is buying the HA line. Stores won't restock with new figures if old figures aren't selling. I don't see how this isn't simple to understand?

I assume they're just waiting for the Skids/Sideswipe case next year, so we don't get swamped with more Bumblebees. The pricing's to blame. Shame, Bumblebee's an absolutely fantastic toy, just not $80 worth of fantastic by any means.

Firstly, Hasbro NZ gets no say in what comes in a case. That's decided by Hasbro US. Secondly, if you were selling product you wouldn't tell a store 'don't buy too much of this product' would you? They want, hell they NEED to sell product so of course they're going to give stores whatever they ask for, even if it is 33 Devastators.

Though I have to admit i'm surprised you actually spelt Devastator correctly. Albeit without a capital D.

If memory serves, Hasbro NZ have indeed had some say into case ratios in the past. We were the only country to get the Alternators Prime/Prime/Ricochet/Rollbar case as far as I'm aware, but that was likely an exception.

They do have a history of avoiding cases that contain too many shelfwarmers and not enough new figures. Take, say, the Energon and Cybertron figures we missed out on in the Mega range - the likes of Dreadwing and Evac - both of whom shipped with figures already clogging shelves.

Makes sense to me!
