    Sidecutter has just informed me by text message that the toy they will be building and custom-painting today is an evil version of the TF Club Nightbeat mold!

    whaaaaaaa?

    this just reinforces the stance some people have against the expensive (and now delayed) club packaging....

    Eh, I don't think they need ANOTHER evil autobot. They need mmore good 'cons.

    EEEhhhh, the bot mode isn't all that cool looking. I never did like this mold. Anywho the class would be worth it even if the bot wasn't great. Man now I really want to go.

    I'm actually starting to not care anymore. The delay on Nightbeat is really giving me the time to realize that I don't need him, especially because of the crappy bot mode. The look of his alt mode is what drew me to him, but seeing as how I display my stuff in bot mode....well lets just say the delay may have cost FP 2 purchases.

    Grats to the customization classes! Whatever figure you get, they're a really great experience, though.

    So, Nightbeat and the Seacons have been delayed because of some manufacturing issues, right? And now Nightbeat is going to be the customs class figure?

    Could this mean that they fixed his head mold and added antennae.... and maybe are getting rid of the extra already-produced non-antennae versions under the guise of the customs class? Eh?

    Okay, probably not. But a geek can dream.... :)

    No, they're delayed because of packaging issues.

    oh, i wish....

    i've been fine with the packaging thus far because of the quality, but when it makes 2 highly anticipated figures (for me at least) delayed for months, scrap the packaging and put 'em in baggies.
