    Just got this email:

    Dear Robobuz Customer,

    here is a brief update on the production of our Robobuz toy figures.
    We are still on track and half of the molds have been opened. But, as our producer is working for the german automotive industry which is incredibly booming at the moment, they had to pause the Robobuz production for at least one or two months. That means our earliest target for a release date lies now in december / january.
    I am very sorry for this delay and, personally, I too find it very annoying that we will miss christmas, but we can't do anything about it.
    The automotive clients are far more important to our producer than the Robobuz project and we can't pay as much as they do. So we just have to wait.

    In any case, I will keep an eye on the entire production process and we will do our best to achieve the highest possible quality for the final figures.
    Again, sorry for the delay and thank you very much for your patience.
    Best regards,
    Thomas Wagner


    Sorry if this isn't news worthy.

    Yeah I got that too, a shame but at least it's definitely coming since they've started making the moulds. Looking forward to this one.

    I noticed last week that it had been moved back to January in my list of BBTS pre-orders. So, not surprising news.

    I'm impressed they're managing to have these made in Germany.

    *insert fahrvergn├╝gen joke here*

    I'm a tad less excited for this than I was initially, but that'll probably change when I see some new pics. I still think it'll be incredibly cool to have a transforming bus.
