So last years May Mayhem event was pretty much a breeze. The launch day came, at midnight several online stores sold out fast, I waited until morning and bought the toys at Targets site for less than anywhere else.
Needless to say, I got cocky.
We hear news of this years May Mayhem toy will be deluxe Combiner Wars Groove and he'll go on sale in May. Then no news followed. Rumors of a May 24th release came and ...
It was just preorders. Target didn't stock them on their website this year.
I looked around at sites with no clear info other than Amazon shipped a few out before the toy went into preorder status again.
For once, the fandom that knows everything was clueless.
So after giving up and accepting the truth, I preordered Groove. Luckily, I got mine at Entertainment Earth, the one place that wasn't charging astronomical prices for the figure. Just a dollar over regular deluxe retail price. Pretty much exactly what I paid at Targets site last year.
Of course this year it's a preorder and I won't actually pay until he ships IN OCTOBER. Which really isn't a problem, but it sure would have been nice to know ahead of time.
