    My dude, you do realize both of those are cancelled, right?

    Edit: Saw the title, didn't see cancelled in it... did you just edit it or are my weary eyes effin with me?

    These lines never seem to have much of a life.

    I don't know about the Powermaster OP, but I can confirm the the Sunstorm Bust has been canceled from Diamond. My invoice this week stated it as being canceled.

    I'm not all that surprised as I didn't think too many people would order him. (the economy being what it is, all of us comic shop guys have had to cut back.) But I'd be really disappointed if we don't see the PMOP. I mean Prime busts usually sell the best as far as TF statues go.

    I'll be pretty disappointed if the PM Prime bust is canceled! I thought it looked pretty sweet and was a nice rendition of the Prime. Honestly, I won't be too surprised though. As mentioned above, bust/statue lines don't tend to get much past Prime, Megatron, and maybe some seekers and/or Autobot cars.

    I'm still glad this company gave me an Elita One bust - the most treasured of all... As for those guys - sad, but true - statues never had big share in this market segment.

    I am sad. I was looking forward to both busts since I have a complete set of DST busts/statues.

    :(

    It's a shame I have every bust in this line. They got so many characters done, even guys who never get statues or busts. I was kinda concerned when there was no SDCC exclusive bust this year, the first time in 3 years. At the same time this line of statues has been plagued with tons of delays. So maybe just maybe Diamond will re solicit them down the road.

    They need to stop announcing busts and then cancelling them. I still mourn for Dinobot.

    I was planning on getting the Powermaster Optimus Prime bust so I hope it doesn't get canceled.

    As much as I liked this line, it never really stood a chance. It was healthy for a while, but after the BBTS exclusives came out retail prices dropped like a rock just like the Hard Hero busts. I hope the PM Prime finds a second life somehow like the Palisades Devastator if he really is canceled, but we ended up getting Ultra Magnus so I'm sitting pretty.

    I don't care, PM Prime was miscolored anyway. He looked more like Ginrai.

    Man I was really looking forward to that PM Prime! Wanted to complete my TF Armada busts! But seriously, that sucks for everyone that collects busts. Seems this happens a lot where they get canceled at the last moment.
