Well, actually a couple of twists. First and foremost, the finding is from a retail Toys “R” Us in Utah, and reports that they have found Blind Bag Wave 5 in stores. So, the first question is… where is Wave 4? Perhaps Wave 4 is impending as well…
But the second and more pressing issue in my mind is there appears to be a lack of blind bag codes. This was reported on some Transformers Kre-Ons a short while ago, and unfortunately the tactic has officially passed along to the G.I. Joe side as well. I’m certainly not happy about it, and this will probably result in me just picking and choosing the loose figures on eBay or some other service. I don’t have a local Toys “R” Us, so I’m certainly not going to make a special 120 mile round trip just to buy an armful of Kre-Ons and hope I get the ones I want.
I kind of understand why Hasbro is doing it, but I don’t much like it.
