    Hey gang, I was just wondering a couple of things:

    1. I was a little out of the loop for about two weeks because I moved, was there any updates past the Sludge Prototype?

    2. When are they due to be released? Justitoys' site say September, wheras most Preorders say mid-late October?

    and

    3. Swoop is available for regular purchase, right? He just costs extra because he has all the missle launchers?

    Thanks.

    1. I've been here the whole time and haven't heard anything
    2. I'd imagine any time now
    3. Yes. Swoop seems to be around $30 while the others are around $15.

    Congratz on the move.

    I think you send them in for Swoop... Which makes little to no sense to me knowing it'll be available on it's own (although ~$60 for all 5 seems like a steal to me)

    Swoop, though it only gives you a discount. (which brings him down to regular price, which basicaly gives you 5 free missle launchers) You can still buy him without cutting up your boxes.

    It would be neat if, in addition to the launchers, Swoop came with an extra chrome Snarl sword to replace his grey one.

    Me too. I didn't want to cut up the boxes, plus the extra money is more than worth it to complete the WSTF Dinos.

    Yep, exactly. Too much trouble, if you ask me. Now if they were giving swoop for free with the cut out boxes, well...

    The way i heard it was Swoop was free when you mail in the box points you just pay the shipping.. Either way ill be mailing mine in , i got extra boxes from some repaints i did so its no big deal to hack up the boxes.. its only a tiny hole anyways if you use a razor knife to cut them out.

    Nah, I don't think Swoop is free. I think I read somewhere that he you get either $5.00 or $15.00 bucks off.

    I put them off, but when I bought E-hobby THS-02 from someone on here, I picked up slag and snarl from them for pretty cheap to see what they were like. Very impressive, and larger than reg. wst, which puts them in a nice scale as actual dinosaurs.
