    We know Gestalt boxed sets sell poorly, and it is a FAVOR that the official club has worked as hard as it has to get us Spacewarp and Universe Constructicons... I am not sure we have any room to get demanding about it.

    Personally, I never saw the appeal of Universe Seacons and I feel a reissue Pirahnaking would outsell universe seacons any day of the week. So since the molds are healthy, maybe they are waiting because we may see a reissue?

    The FP people are nice, if it bothers you, ask them about it. But there is no need to badmouth them. If it is going to be a reality they are pushing for it.

    If you are curious where it is, ask them. Get the fandom an official update. Until they take money from people for pre-orders, there is still a chance we won't see them because Hasbro controls the fate of any figure.

    I'm sorry, but mouthing off over a Staff decision is never ever going to be accepted here. If you have a problem with a decision you PM that person, and you handle it like an adult. Enjoy your time off from the Board.

    Nkelsch made two valid and respectful responses to your post, and you tell him to go F- himself?

    :wtf:

    We've been told the delay is because of issues with the packaging.

    I can wait. Big picture, the delay means nothing. I'm just pleased I'm getting them.

    I wonder if it'll be similar to the one Soundwave was in.

    Seconded. I mean, how long has it been since they were first announced? Me, I can wait a couple more months. And I love FP, Hasbro, and whoever else was involved in getting these things even the possibility at a second chance of release.

    And since I've already got the original, I'd just as soon have the new color scheme, rather than a reissue. I still mean to get the BWII style Seacons one of these days, too, but that's neither here nor there.

    I'm just waiting for the release to become official and a date set then I'll join the club. That and to get the other club exclusives at a lower price. :D

    I just pictured thousands of little Seacon monsters attacking the guys packaging them in the factory. Vicious little bastards.

    Are you talking about the Soundwave Commerative reissue?

    Correct me if Im wrong, but FP has the figures in hand, it's just the packaging that's holding up everything? Whether its getting the packaging made, or this...
