    Hmm. Possible, but I doubt it. They normally don't pinpoint an exact date. My guess is this was merely a typo. Not to mention, their latest newsletter would've mentioned that.

    No, I think we've still got a while to wait.

    I was meaning to preorder at HTS. I was trying to hold out for a good coupon code to use but they suddenly went to out of stock. I've been debating to preorder at BBTS. $8 over retail isn't too bad but once you add in 10 dollars for shipping you're now looking at $58.

    Then I saw they updated their just "Arrives in August" to August 7th and now i'm very tempted. I know he is going to be popular at retail (i've missed just about every Ultra Magnus at retail recently, Armada Ultra Magnus, Classics Skywarp/Ultra Magnus) so I really want to make sure I get this one. I'm probably going to bite the bullet.

    It could be a typo, but when i preordered a few weeks ago it just said "August 08" so they've purposefully updated it. Whether they've updated it correctly is debatable, but it's definitely new info for BBTS.

    Hasbro listed the release date at SDCC as August 1st, so it only makes sense that shops get them soon after.

    You got me excited. I thought it was the City Commander add-on that you were talking about. Ah well.

    Okay, so is the cab section white or baby blue? All the photos show it as white, but people who've gotten it early show it as--and say it is--blue.

    I don't particularly care (dude, it's Ultra Magnus), but I don't think it's right to make something in such an in-between color so that all the photos look one color when they're really something else.

    Oh, and on topic...I'm sure the date is legit. Like Tim said, the SDCC pics showed it as being released on the 1st. I'm actually suprised that he hasn't been found early. The Universe Ultras said August 1st, too, but they'be been popping up all over.

    Just a heads up but Target.com has Ultra Magnus up for preorder with a ship date of Aug. 14th. Their price is 42.99 with free shipping.

    Aaaagghh don't do that I thought you were talking about the City Commander upgrade, which I still have to pre-order. I think I should get on that pretty soon......

    Then I stand corrected, my apologies.

    Well, that's sooner than I expected, and it's gonna cost me more than I expected. Hmm.

    Oh well, it's Magnus and I wanted him like yesterday.

    You know, there's awesome, and then there's awesomer.

    This qualifies as the latter. I love that shop.
