    I'm hoping to buy one off a TFCon attendee. If anyone goes and wants to offload it.. let me know. PM's are great.

    I've had a preorder sitting in my BBTS account since May of last year, actually. Been wondering when/if they might ever get her in. Impossible Toys' Valkyrie/Arcee went all the way from the design/prototype stage to shipping in that entire time. Made me wonder if the toy had been canceled.

    Addendum: And now I see it's apparently being classified as a different, way more expensive order. Wonder what the difference between the two are and if the old, non-TFCon preorders will still be honored.

    The one you preordered, from May of last year, is the non transforming Night Bird by Impossible Toys. The TFCon version was just announced a couple months ago, and is a remold of the TRNS-01 Valkyrie figure by Impossible Toys, which does transform.

    These are two different toys you are getting confused with. They are both by Impossible Toys, which probably explains the confusion.

    This... Nightbird Figure - Transformers Accessories Accessories

    Is not the same as this... TFCon 2010 Exclusive Nightbird - Transformers 2010 Transformers Exclusives

    EDIT: Eh.. what Venksta posted... mere seconds before me... ><

    Ah, thanks Venksta and Bgrngod. For some reason I had no idea they were entirely different toys. But now I know and knowing is half the battle.

    Maybe if it was, like, a third that price.

    I know there's only a thousand of 'em and whatnot, but it seems an awful lot based on the reviews so far of the Arcee version.

    Totally agree. Right now I would be hesitant to pre-order anything related to that mold. It seems the QC for Impossible Toys is unfortunately lacking. Bums me out too. Based on the youtube vids, I was REALLY looking forward to this before now.

    It's about time. I wonder what took so long for this Nightbird to come out.

    You might be thinking of the wrong Nightbird figure.
