    I was going to pass on the g1 Prime but I won an eBay auction for one at about $150 shipped(it was even new sealed in shipper). Once I got it in hand I was able to appreciate what a great figure it is. Even though it’s stylized it blowers hot toys away. The size and weight are impressive. Unfortunately because it didn’t sell well we won’t be getting Megatron. The attention to detail is amazing and can only be appreciated once in hand but the price point makes many collectors pass on a great display piece. I like this g1 Prime more than the other two 3a primes released.

    I totally agree! I love Bumblebee in black and it would be very cool to recreate the gorgeous Autobot reunite scene - at least partially! Also,
    Optimus got an evasion mode too - it would be fair to give it to Bumblebee:)

    So sad to hear that Barricade is completely cancelled. The only other company that could do him justice is Prime1 but their asking price is usually too steep for me unfortunately.

    You mean the Pre Order is Happening around Primes release? Should be possible i think.

    The actual Megatron release would then be sometime around 2nd Quarter of 2019, my guess
    that is totally okay for me.

    Wha...nope. TLK Megatron preorder is this year. Q2 was the original plan for the PO. Mid-end of July if approvals go quickly

    TLK Prime begins shipping in July, Bee in August

    Awesome! Do you plan to do any more from the previous films? Lockdown would definitely be a hit!

    We have more movie figure plans, but that’s as much as I can say for now

    i meant the Release of Megatron is in 2019. My Guess would be 1st or 2nd Quarter of 2019.
    I would be suprised if you guys can dish him out in December, but after seeing the time span between Pre Order and actual Release:
    Pre Order > Release 1 Year later.

    Pre Order in July, as i thought.

    Some People wanted to know again, because it happened that some Companies
    said "Figure XY will be released next Month" > and then directly 1 Week later "Sorry Figure XY is cancelled".
    Something like this happens not so often, but it happened before.

    Production averages about 9mo. Wish we were faster, but just how it is. Yes, 8week open preorder, with Q2 2019 shipping estimate is likely

    Perfect, thank you so much.

    As i said in the Unique Toys Thread: Delays are not a Problem for me.
    Not even a 1 Year Delay.

    But ignoring Fans that have simple Question like Unique Toys did > That is a Problem.

    Everybody that is able to speak and write, can write a short Message to the Fans
    like "Figure is Delayed because of" or "Figure is delayed to Month XY".
    Not a Big Deal, every good 3P Company should be able to do this.

    But one Question i have, concerning Megatron. You do not need to Answer directly if you are not allowed to do so.
    But concering the Price of Megatron: Do you think he will be the same as Optimus 450$ ?
    or more Expensive? In the Movie he is indeed taller, i know that.

    If your Company does him the same size as Optimus, it is still okay, at least for me.

    Right now i have put asside 900$ for 2x Megatron
    is it enough? Or do i need some more this time?

    I’m not always allowed to comment due to NDA’s or pending approvals. Most info isn’t finalized until closer to the preorder window, so there is little that can be said

    Final pricing has not been determined. Size is same as Optimus at 19”. I’d say an estimate between $430 and $450 is a safe bet

    They confirmed on their twitter that they’ve received the designs used in the new bumblebee movie so he may be referring to that.

    My number one, overwhelming, absolute consuming question I have is simply this . . .

    Will there be any new movie figures from the Age of Extinction license??

    That would rock my world if decemberist could answer that - just a yay or nay :)

    Hey, @decemberist, I'm sorry, that I disturb you again, I've contacted 3A and Bambaland a while ago, but noone replies me:(  I'm going to travel soon and won't have normal connection there, so I'm afraid I couldn't pay a second half for my order #252946! I want to pay now, how can I do that?
