Isn't the original Blob hollow in the belly too?

I was thinking that too, but I've been at the office all day and can't verify.
Nah. It's filled with air.

Blob definitely doesn't disappoint. I can see him ending up on a lot of Top 10s for the year. Honestly, figure feels pretty solid and not hollow at all to me. And he poses about as well as you could expect for a big, obese guy. Perhaps even better.

I ordered my Blob through Hasbro Pulse.
One would think paying for a membership with Hasbro Pulse that the Hasbro figures would be sent out from Hasbro Pulse before anyone else got them.
With BBTS using DHL more and more, shipping time with them has significantly increased.

See, the thing is, I think Hasbro deliberately ships last so as not to upset their retail partners and paint themselves as not a direct competitor. If they consistently shipped first, more and more collectors would order from them and abandon other retailers. Ultimately Hasbro doesn't want that. They ship last so stores continue to order from them.

Well, that is not convenient for me, but from the Big Picture perspective, what you have said makes complete sense.
I feel that my membership with Hasbro Pulse has been a worthwhile purchase with some of their exclusives, free shipping and the quality of their customer service.

Curious to hear why Amazon isn't carrying Blob. That's... random.

I am so ready for all these new X-Figures to hit! I'm ready to re-do my X-shelves but waiting on Blob, the Vertigo pack, the Retro wave - all of which are releasing imminently - debating if I need another Female Sentinel Prime to flank Bastion and counting down the days for ShopDisney to get Cyclops!!

They're always randomly excluded as a fan channel. I don't know why they're ever included at all given that they get their own exclusives and their revenue is almost the same as Walmart's now since their business doubled after the pandemic.

Well, I did the unthinkable and canceled my Uncanny 275 sets. Do I use the money saved to go in on the Blob? I think he looks great but about $20 too expensive. And I have the BAF. But this guy looks great. Hmmmmmm.....

I think both the 275 and Blob can be had on a discount. But again, you run the risk of "F*ck around [with-preorders]" and "Find out [eBay prices]"

Yeah, Blob turned out really well based on that review. I may end up getting a second if there is any sort of discount.

This is looking like it's gonna be a strong contender for figure of the year in my book.

I don't know if that's truly the case. I've gotten plenty of Transformers from Pulse earlier than other retailers get them in.

Blob arrived at my PO this morning a little too late for sorting and delivery. Have to wait until Monday. I usually go with FedEx for POLs, but did the $4 shipping because it was one item. It's essentially DHL Surepost where they hand off to the local PO. The last time I went with the $4 shipping, BBTS sent it USPS.
