    Hi everyone,

    I just now got straight from igear that because of CNY that these two figures are much further delayed than we thought..... Which makes me wonder if the changed date to February ETA was even a reasonably accurate quote. :mad 

    The time frame now, and this was direct from the guy I talked to via IM, is April/May time frame. I know this news will probably upset a lot of people, but at the same time needs to be reported to everyone who is anticipating these figures.

    Take care,

    - Gregg

    That's cool. Let them work stuff out. If I can get the one figure I'm ordering in top quality because they worked stuff out for the better, I'm fine with that.

    ...so long as that's what comes of this, anyway.

    I had these preordered as a Christmas gift and had initially expected it Jan.... seriously wtf. I understand being pushed back but not so many times and for so long. Honestly, we saw a darn review video of the prototype already, I don't understand why they can't just freaking paint it and give it to us.

    *sigh* When did these initially go up for pre-order? It isn't like CNY snuck up on anyone..would have though they'd have budgeted for it

    Honestly that's a good thing for me. I've spent way too much on toys lately, they can hold it till Summer for all I care.Hopefully the extra time is well-spent.

    Not surprising. I'm ok with it. After Hercules I can use the break. :) 

    the only downside is that means Presser is even further down the road I imagine

    Another thing that was said was that the Dinobots would be released before Presser, but no formal announcement has been made yet. Again, straight from the conversation I had with them. Presser hasn't even went into any kind of production yet.

    I wanted to preorder these guys from the IGear site cause the cost is less than from TFsource or BBTS. My question is has anyone here ordered straight from IGear? I have never really ordered from overseas and wondered if its safe? I wouldn't wanna shell out $200 on these and have them lost or stolen on their way to me.

    Chinese New Year, I'd guess.

    So All FIVE Dinobots before Presser? Really? Did they talk about the scale/size of the Dinobots?
