    Just had an email from Red Leader of Kapow Toys confirming that that their allocation is being shipped at the end of the month.
    Goodness awaits!

    Hopefully my Lugnut, Grapple, and Battle in a Box Preorders will have come in by then and I can have a second Christmas morning in early January when I ship my POL.

    I've grown accustomed to Fans Project stuff shipping late (which is okay, given the quality they put into their products). It impresses me that they are making the December shipping date.

    Hoping to get this sooner but as long as I get it, that is all that really matters.

    Kinda makes me think that Fansproject is the Blizzard equivalent of gaming companies vs. transformers companies

    You'd think since Protector is about to drop that FPJ would put the final production pictures up on their site.

    Just put in my preorder at BBTS for the Protector and Sidearm. Even though I am already getting MP Rodimus this set is still too good to pass up. My wallet's going to take a beating in January though. :(

    Im a little irritated personally.. I know, "what can you do?" but, I think its reasonable expectations to have a higgghly anticipated item like this "hit shelves" a bit before xmas..

    I definitely appreciate the level of production these kits require.. but its not like a video game thats predicted to sell millions of copies on launch date.. This, to me, just feels lazy on FP's part >.>. Its gonna sell how its gonna sell still, release date wont make a difference.. I, for one, am just irritated by it <.<

    I can wait. The waiting will just give me more time to save for Christmas gifts, etc.

    I think they're holding to make sure the product is done right, not to influence sales. I'd rather they take the time considering the price I'm spending.

    Just curious, has anyone here preordered Shadow Scythe from TFSource. Only 300 were made so I guess there's not many board members got their hands on it.

    Glad to hear, gives me time to raise or save up the money for my pre-order. And I really wouldn't mind if it was pushed back to January as I have already destroyed my December TF budget.
