    I received notification this evening that these three have been added to my pile of loot at BBTS, and they're also all showing as in stock. They've been delayed multiple times, so it's nice to see they're finally available.

    Yeah, I finally got my Smokescreen bust from Toyrocket back on Wednesday after having it preordered for almost a year. It's an awesome little bust and well worth the wait. It makes a perfect centerpiece for my Smokey display. :D

    Want Prowl, but not for that price. I'm not that into statues, that is until I win the lotteries.

    Dimonds stuff is nice I just wish they didnt use the clear rods, just about every bust I have recieved has had damaged rods or the items themseleves have been damaged but when you get a non flawed bust they look great.

    Thankfully, I have yet to run into any broken clear rods, but I check right away every time I get a new bust from Diamond.

    It's a bit of a design flaw, IMO... a metal rod would be fine, and would not detract from the look.

    Is this line over?

    I was starting to finally dig the busts, but now it looks like the line is dead, as all DST showed at Toyfair was old stuff and armless G1 Optimus Prime and Megatron busts.

    Did we ever even get that cool Ricochet bust?

    If my spreadsheet is accurate, still awaiting release are Galvatron, Ultra Magnus, Armored Jetfire, Jetfire, Ratchet

    Solicited but not yet available for preorder anywhere are Galvatron (w/ some kind of battle damage, if I remember correctly) and Ricochet

    Trailbreaker77 keeps up with these as well, so if I've missed any, he'll probably fill in the gaps.

    Isn't it a bad sign that we haven't seen anything beyond what's (supposedly) shipping within the next month, besides those last two repaints haven't been up for sale at all?
