    Is anyone else getting nervous about this set??? Im begining to think they may have decided to scrap it. But why, if Defender is still (somewhat) on schedule to release. Can anyone think of an explaination... Really Im just looking for comforting words! lol

    I think it was pushed off because of the Bruticus set. FP is trying to capitalize on the ROTF Bruticus set release as best they can, which means Protector gets pushed off.

    You mean that release that hasn't been widespread in the slightest?

    I'm a bit bumned that it was pushed back. It's something I'll def. drop money into (unlike City Commander which I'm on the fence over) or the Bruticus sets as I can't even get a hold of Bruticus for a decent price.

    It'd also be nifty as it's a new add on set for a new mold, and one that's a deluxe, so it'd be good to see a new price point.

    I'm looking forward to this as well so I can turn Rodimus into Rodimus Prime.

    I think FP pushing for bruticus due to the toy being shelveswarmer in asia, since it's not target esclusive like in the US

    what worries me is the scarce Rodimus figure (have you guy seen the price hike yet??? It's ridiculous!)

    That's why, I think what made FP push the protector a bit. I still hope it'll be released though

    worrying about 3rd party release dates?
    ahahahahahah

    pay up front for a reliable pre order and put it out of your mind

    just be happy when it shows up, it'll be a pleasant surprise

    it would also help if you knew the name of the product your were worrying about

    it's PROTECTOR

    not city protector

    That's unfortunate, because in my area (Winnipeg, Canada), there's plenty of them and on sale for $28.49 CAD.


    The Protector set would be cool, but I'd rather not have it released too close to the Bruticus add ons. I'm patient and can wait.

    Has Rodimus jumped in price? When I started playing with TFs again (because Zoids died argh), I missed the classics boat and had to buy a bunch on ebay. Didn't buy Rodimus because I struggled to find him at a reasonable price.

    I thought he's been unreasonable the whole time?

    It seems like the scalpers have come out to play on bruticus though.

    "Oh noes! I'm not being reminded of a toy every week!! Did it get cancelled???!!1!two"

    Calm down. If it comes out, it comes out. If not, then it's one more for the list:

    [X] Classics- Wait no, Titanium Cosmos
    [X] any transforming G1 Arcee
    [X] Titanium Shockwave
    et cetera

    I agree I think it's a timing thing. They needed to rush the Bruticus add ons to market so that people might have the possibility of still getting the set. Rodimus has been off the shelves for ages so there's no need to bring the armor out right now when there are more items to get to market.

    April - Defender
    May - Crossfire 02A
    June - Crossfire 02B

    So I would say July would be the earliest that we'll see Protector so hopefully around April we'll see an update to him.

    While we're speaking about stuff we're waiting from FP, what ever happened to those mini Classics Megatrons?

    Too expensive relative to their size, IIRC.

    Pity, they looked cool.

    That. And they were too close on infringing on Hasbros IP.

    Protector will arrive eventually. The G3 trailer was put on the backburner at one point too.

    Just don't expect preorder release dates to be exact. Think more 2-3 months past what they say. Its no big deal though. Perfection takes time and is well worth the wait :)

    Yeah, I heard it was more about IP than size vs. cost.
