Bad Chi: Buyout by GigaLeo Bad Chi: Buyout by GigaLeo
I'll be honest, it's very rare that an impulse buy has come back to bite my tookus. When it comes to action figures, if I see something that I want I'm probably going to lay money down for it right then and there. The ridiculous online panic over Generations Windcharger and Warpath make me glad it's become my policy to 'snag now, ponder later.'

I have zero impulse control when it comes to things like that, I just black out and then the mailman brings me these awesome action figures :)

Wow, I went nuts over the Megaman kits they made in the late 90s, I bought TenguMan, SwordsMan, regular Megaman, Rush, MegaMan X, Protoman, and pretty much everyone else that was made! Now that new figs are popping up again, I'm constantly convincing myself NOT to buy them too!

Same here ^^ Some years ago several based upon the MMX and the MM.exe appeared on the market. A good deal of my paycheck went to pay them XD

I only picked up the dark Zero from that line, I didn't like the EXE series outside of some of the villain redesigns. I couldn't get past the Pokemon-ish approach they took. That D-Arts Rockman X is screaming my name though, I may have to buckle and grab that figure sometime soon.

I kind of did the same with the new Mortal Kombat. I even went ahead and ordered the Kollector's Edition with the statues. Why? Because I wanted it baby.

Good call, I'm very impressed with the way the new MK looks, the fatalities are top notch!
I actually just broke down and snagged a Grappel from ebay, the lowest price I've seen in awhile and I will not miss him again!

OH yeah. I love the new game. I've been playing it for a solid month... now I think they need to release downloadable content so I can have more to the game again! XD

There was a panic over Windy? I should have bought all those figures I saw warming the shelf the other week... didn't look like anybody wanted him much.

Yup, people are still debating whether or not he'll ever see release in the U.S. If you were looking for any specific transformer, Windcharger is primo trade fodder right now :)
I can't help but think the Windcharger price leap is going to follow in the footsteps of Battle Unicorn though. Hasbro loves money so I figure Hasbro will release him at some point, even if they have to wait until it's after the movie rush.

I already found Warpath in stores, no luck with Windcharger. The question for me is how badly do I want him.

I consider you lucky, I was lucky enough to snag him from someone on a message board, but I've yet to see him in wild. I have Windcharger and he's a neat little scout, but I'd dare say he's not worth the cost the online panicking has driven the price up to. That's what's putting me off from getting Henkei Frenzy and Rumble. Rumors of Rumble not being released in the U.S drove the price of those guys up a ridiculous amount.

I thought Hasbro was going to release Rumble and Frenzy in a two-pack together...?

Takara did, but Hasbro's releasing them separately. So far we've only seen pictures of Rumble on card.

Whuh-oh.

Nope, Hasbro went all cartoon on us, Rumble's blue in the toyline. I was hoping they'd call him 'Blizzard Fury Frenzy' just to mess with the fandom.
