    Both BBTS and TFsource have pushed back the release date to Dec/Jan for this.

    Considering the lack of news on it, I was expecting as much, and I wouldn't be surprised if it gets pushed back even farther - their release dates are optimistic at best.

    Every time I see threads about this, I keep thinking it's some sort of Knight Rider transformer. I have to think really hard to remember what it actually is.

    ... it's the loco-Optimus right?

    Delayed? Really? What was the first clue? That it's November it had still said a release of October? Had it on preorder and took it off like a month ago. Can't afford having $90 taken out if my account with no warning. Stupid BBTS preordering rules...

    I'm fine with it, I've bought enough TFs lately. Everyone knows the first half of the year is dead compared to the 2nd half when it comes to toy releases, so getting KMC will help to break up the drought.

    What? I have been preordering stuff for years from BBTS - even now - and they don't charge my card until the item arrives. You must be thinking of another vendor.

    TFSource maybe? I preordered 2 through them, they charged me for them as soon as I clicked the order button. I prefer it that way, it's not like that $180 is going to do anything sitting in my savings account at a whopping 1% apy.

    I prefer "never" over "late". Sick of these overpriced customs.

    ...I can't tell if you're kidding or not.

    If you're not - how can you be sick of something that you don't have any obligation to buy? For that matter, how can you be sick of something that you don't even have to acknowledge exists?

    Maybe Kickback's jealous, broke, and in denial...

    I was looking forward to this, and still may be, but after the first delay (it was supposed to be October then shifted to Nov., and I even made a thread asking about in the toy discussion section) I lost some motivation to have it. Generally there is only so much I like to spend on toys in a given month, and that goes down towards the holidays. If it gets delayed to sometime next year, or if the paint job really blows me away, I might be back on board.
