    Last I heard it was suppose to be the end of this year, factor in asian time and it'll actually be early next year. I hope it doesn't come soon. I'm not done scalping up henkei hot rods for $20 yet. . . :lol

    Yea, they have stated that they expected it release near the end of the year, or very early next year. It is a little concerning that we havent seen much as far as an actual prototype piece, but I don't mind if it is delayed a bit, I have enough to spend my money on right now. Just get your extra Rodimus while he is still cheap. Got mine months ago.

    He asked about the Defender toy, not Protector. Defender is their Springer.

    With that cleared up..We haven't heard a word about it other than the pic in the Powered and DIA Commander sets and their booth at TFCon.

    Seeing him in the Powered Commander comic/inst, I'm surprised to not have heard more by now, preorders if nothing else.

    I think that was the one since it was an actual figure not an add-on.

    I was mostly joking. I did get a couple HR for $20 a couple months back but after international shipping it came out closer to $25-$26. Still a good deal but he's sold out from that website now.

    My bad Defender, Protector, I got confused. Far as I heard from the rep on the Defender figure, there is no timetable and with it (and their other projects that they had pics of) they are still in development and determining if they are even feasable, or something to that affect.
