    I would contact them and ask on the status of your order. It doesn't sound like your order had shipped, so if it is a stock issue, you could bail on this order (assuming that you had not paid) and order from elsewhere.

    If it had already shipped, and you were given tracking information that was not helpful, it may have gone into the Black Hole of Slow Shipping from overseas, if you hadn't picked EMS or a courier company (and even then, there is a chance of encountering the Black Hole of Forgotten Tracking by Expensive Courier Services).

    I'd be interested in the wing pieces as well, as soon as my copy arrives. According to his tracking, he stopped in Louisiana, went up to Arkansas, and latest tracking has him in Arizona, but I live on the East Coast...

    Shipping status finally changed. It made it to Chicago!! Things are really looking up for me now! I'd like to thank everyone for your support during this difficult time.

    I think he said that to do the wings wouldn't be cost effective, and therefore he wouldn't be doing those, which is a truly a shame given how impeccable his work is. We'll have to wait and see what he says about those shin pieces though, and hopefully, should these be suitable for him to work with, he might even consider doing so for the remaining seekers and even coneheads if applicable as those are released. At least that is what I'd be thrilled with if he did so, which again depends on if it works for him.

    This thing looks beautiful... but as I already have the Takara Seekers, I just cannot justify the investment. If I get this Starscream, then I am OCD enough to need the rest. I cannot do it.

    Though if someone was to release the choking hand and head that is compatible with MP-36, I might bite the bullet.

    I'm in the same boat as you and hoping a correction for the up coming seekers, as well as fillers for SS but I'm not that optimistic that will happen. At least its on the back of the figure and not the front/sides that you can see all this.

    This last year I found myself tremendously tempted to get into the third-party scene. Planet X’s Vulcun and Meteor are both amazing. But still, something just doesn’t feel right about it. I know it’s silly, but I can’t shake that feeling. I know the quality of third-party figures has skyrocketed in recent years but it still feels like a huge risk.
