    I just check Igear site....the release date is now....8/20/2012.....

    I just took this as a lost......I'm out of 35$.....I will never do business with them again...I don't care what they make....totally unacceptable business practice....

    Same deal with Ironhide and Ratchet. I have had them on preorder since the day they initially went up on the iGear site. At this point, I wonder if it's possible to get the money back. There's plenty of other companies with merchandise coming up that want my money!

    Neither will 1 year later.

    And at TFCon the panel claimed that ironhide and ratchet should be making the July 31 deadline.

    Shit like this is why I don't like pre-ordering. I pay, and then wait for the announced release date, it gets delayed, it gets delayed again, and by the time it actually comes out, I barely even want the toy anymore. I'd rather just pay and get it a week later while I'm still hyped for it.

    Why is this a surprise for anyone who buys third party toys?

    This is the norm.

    The horror stories are why I hit up TFSource in this case (well that and the free shipping for big orders option). I love the work iGear does and what they pull off but this is pretty bad...and really would be a lot more understandable if they just explained why it was happening in more detail than "factory issues".

    Though I do find it amusing nobody's too torn up about Cosmos.

    Every new product by Igear thread should have a sticky warning for anybody considering preordering directly from them.

    I don't mind cause I think them fixing the arms articulation might have taken more time, but it's something I would rather wait for than be stuck with.

    It's a 3rd party company, delays are to be expected. I thought this was common knowledge...

    Personally I have no interest in Hench and am very excited for UFO, but I didn't place my preorder until fairly recently, and I've fully expected all of the delays, so it's just that I'm not too torn up about the entire situation (including PP05W, which I also preorderd), since I'm not too impatient about this stuff in general, and I haven't been waiting a year like some other people have.

    That seems dubious unless they mean the orders which have already been placed. The website changed the date to 8/10.

    As long as it comes out eventually, that's all I care about. I'm very patient.

    I have something on my pre-order list at BBTS since March 2008.
