    TRANSFORMERS HENKEI SEEKERS

    So are the Powerglide and Silverbolt some sort of limited editions? Maybe that justifies the $55 pricetag. I was under the impression that these were just regular Henkei repaints. Or maybe the Thundercracker set a dangerous precident...lol.

    Um, the 'within a week' is after they receive the shipment, so not necessarily within a week from now. Just so peoples dont get their hopes up too much.

    Wave 2 Voyagers is only Optimus anyway. But still it is a little odd.

    Just for comparison's sake I went to cancel my preorders with HTS last night and I noticed they changed my shipping information from "Ships in 60 - 90 days" to "ships on 6/23". Also they had that date switched on all my wave 1 deluxes and wave 2 deluxes (Ratchet and Blackarachnia). They also had that date on Voyager Prime and Lugnut and Grimlock. Also of interest they had my Leader Megatron listed as shipping on 7/10.

    Take all that as you will. Also keep in mind all my preorders were pretty much in the moment they were listed and available on the site so YMMV depending on when you preordered.

    Hmmm. So what does that say about the other waves ordered through Hasbrotoyshop?

    Like a bunch of you guys, I have some wave 2 stuff pre-ordered (Voyager Prime), but all my HTS orders are marked to ship at 6/23. Does that mean all of them are going out then? If anyone's got thoughts, I'd appreciate it.

    It makes sense for the wave 1 stuff and my Grimmy, but I wonder about the Earth mode Prime. Here's hoping...

    God, Silverbolt looks horrible. The robot mode looks like a nice homage, but he's bascially just kibble under a jet mode. Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like his ENTIRE jet mode (aside from the gun) forms a backpack.

    Hasbro put them at Ultra Class so they could justify the $25 MRSP, so since an average henkei is about twice the price of a normal Classics/Universe figure(give or take a few dollars), it's no suprise to me that they're this price. I would've gotten Powerglide if he were in the low-mid $40's, but now I'll just go with Hasbro's version, it's just as good IMO anyways.

    I may have to redo some of my HTS orders. I won't order through BBTS unless it's for one off things.
