    As expected mine just showed up out of the blue this morning without any heads up from Show-Z. Unfortunately I put all my Studio Series figures into a storage locker 2 weeks ago where they will remain until I move house so this add-on set is gonna be sitting around gathering dust for quite some time I'd imagine.
    Part of me is considering selling both Grimlock and this set and going all in on G-Creation's offering but I'd want to know the full price before I commit. I'm not exactly a fan of Grimlock's Bot-Mode but a huge Robotic T-Rex ridden by a sword-flailing Optimus Prime is pretty hard to pass up on.

    I think mine will arrive early next week. Was hoping for Friday but it was only posted from HK yesterday.

    This kit is pretty awesome and I'll try and do a mini review tomorrow, but for now beware that that the chain for Grimlock's maze has this ugly stress mark on my copy.

    Fortunately I wasn't really planning on using but it's annoying nonetheless, this is prolly a YMMV case but just throwing this out there for people to be careful of.

    A boiling pot of hot water or a blow-torch type lighter might fix that!

    Nice! Looks like mine will not ship today. Lame since they said it'll ship as soon as my payment is processed but it's already been marked "paid".

    Received mine yesterday. Not as stoked as I thought I'd be once I got everything installed.
    The holding of the mace is really tricky to achieve easily, and the second to last articulation point on the tail doesn't hold its position to the left, only the right.
    The tightness of all the points in the flail are awesome though, holds its position well when hanging off his back or when in storage in alt mode.
    Managed to tuck the floppy butt flap tails up into the new tail piece quite well, but still dislike that entire part.
    Going to go with the BMB upscale instead after all, I thought this would complete the figure well, but not as well as I imagined.

    Well damn. My tracking suggests I'll see this tomorrow.

    If that's the case I'll be damn impressed - 5 days from HK to NZ. Sometimes parcels from within my country take longer than that.

    My tracking's doing that irritating thing where the global tracker says it's arrived in the UK and the local tracker says it hasn't. I've learned that's code for 'this is in customs, see it in two weeks at twice the price.'

    Unfortunately fedex here in my city is unreliable. They're a bunch of lazy asses who won't even bother ringing the doorbell and on top of that you have 3 days to pick it up at the airport depo or it will be shipped back to sender.

    Utter garbage, cause I don't have spare money laying around to pay for it right away, it's like pulling teeth to make them see reason, i live paycheck to paycheck, everything that needs to be paid is paid almost the same day or that weekend of that paycheck, so if this shows up on monday, that means i have to wait 2 weeks to pay for it. Just garbage policies.

    And don't get me started on tracking, if i'm importing... which is like 99% of my purchases.
