    I'm glad someone asked his because I never had the nerve to. I've been researching this and nobody has a concrete answer..... April, May or even June at some stores.

    No one knows. If BBTS says April, you can expect to have it in your hands sometime in early May, assuming the ETA isn't pushed back.

    Toy Arena says 30 May and from my experience with them they haven't been way off on preorder dates (unless it's something that's delayed, which can't be helped by anyone), so I'm thinking sometime in May but sure wouldn't mind if it's earlier.

    Don't forget a lot of people had HOS Prime on preorder, with an initial ship date of fall 2009, and now it says "Late March". These 3rd party items are a different breed :lol 

    Of course, I expect fansproject to be a lot more accurate as they move forward and get some experience under their belt.

    I'm glad that you brought up HOS Prime. It is holding up a big preorder for me. I hope that we get these soon.

    It is not Autobot nor Deception.
    This is a 3rd party product.
    I don't think there is a story behind this robot yet.
    There is a robot that looks like Defender in the comic that comes with the Powered/DIA Commander kit and the Aerial Team Appendage Add on Kit but those stories are not linked in anyway.

    I wouldn't get to excited yet. We haven't even seen pictures of it with a final paint/plastic color scheme.

    I am excited though...

    I'm actually holding off on getting him until I see some final production pictures. Eighty dollars is a lot to spend on a figure without seeing a picture of the final product.
