I decided to get the japanese release do we know when he is gonna be released beyond January?
I think it's coming out on the 29th.
Yes it's the 29th with the 2nd wave of TF United.
Thanks again for the info! I cant wait for this toy
Thank you! I've been wondering and being quiet impatient All i could find out was "early January"
2 weeks! WOOO!!
i ams excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what is the usual turnaround time for online stores to get this in-stock and ship the pre-orders out? Say one week to get to BBTS/TFSource and then another week to ship to the customer? So somebody who pre-ordered MP Rodimus would get it around the middle of February? Or would it be sooner?
when you get an email stating it is in, (and you don't have PoL on) allow about 2-3 days for processing, and a full week for it to get to you.
with that, you may be pleasantly surprised how quickly you get it.
but don't wait 1 day and then panic.
I would think from past experience, if you pre-ordered, you'd probably get it either 1st or 2nd week of Feb.
EDIT: Jarod said it...
But you know how it's going to go. Either TF Source or BBTS will get it first, and people who pre-ordered with whichever shop doesn't get it first will be panicking...happens every time.
Depends on the store. Some turn things around faster than others. I've never sued TFSource, but I know that BBTS usually takes a day or so to get stuff boxed and addressed for shipping. From there it will take UPS 2-5 days to get it to you, depending on how far away you are from Wisconsin. Not sure how long you'd have to wait for it to arrive at the store from Japan, though, as it's been a long time since I used BBTS for a foreign import preorder.
I've got my Rodimus preorder at HLJ. Assuming there's no Japanese holiday that week (which always seems to happen to me when I buy from them) I'll probably send the payment Friday, have the toy sit there over the weekend while the shop is closed, then get it sent out on Monday or Tuesday, depending on packing time. With EMS shipping it will get here in about three or four days from there. So by the 4th I should have my Rodimus.
Now if I'd gone with amiami I would pay Friday and have it shipped out within 24 hours, arriving on Tuesday via EMS.
Hopefully I'll have mine the 2nd of February.
I expect mine to come sometime during the week of January 30th from TFSource. First time I ordered from there. Usually it's BBTS, but went with TFSource. That is because I wanted to pay for Rodimus upfront, and be done with it.
I pre-ordered mine from BBTS in like September I think (that's how excited I was for it!) and the "Arrives in January 2011" note on their page is such a tease. I can't wait to get him
I agree on the tease. I was originally going to wait for the hasbro version but the more i thoguht about not having the trailer the more i was leaning towards the takara version. I know the trailer is just a big boxy accessory but you cannot have the proper Rodimus prime vehicle mode without it. I cant wait to see how he transforms differently for each mode
I too am extremely excited about getting roddy. He is the most incredibly awesome masterpiece yet just for the engineering alone.
I'll be happy if I have him in my hands by the end of Feb. I'll be exstatic if I have in my hands by the 20th (my b-day).
Expect to be disappointed then. It's released in Japan at the end of Jan. That means it'll be shipped to US import stores after it's release which will take a week or two, then that stores orders will be filled and packaged and shipped which will take up to another week, then actual shipping time which depends on where you are located.
