    Who's got 'em preordered? And how long do you think it will be until they arrive, having to go from Japanese distributor to North American outlet, to the consumer? Any speculations on if/who the next will be?

    I so want a Soundwave but....I just can't justify getting ANOTHER one. I might have to sell off some of my collection.

    I've got Prime preordered from BBTS. I've never preordered anything before, so I have no idea when to expect it.

    I'd like to get Soundwave, since Hasbro put the wrong door on theirs. But, I really need a new computer, so I probably won't be getting him.

    I got Prime and SS pre-ordered from HLJ. I'm going to try and arrange it so that they'll ship them together. I don't want to pay EMS twice.

    I have 2 Starscreams preordered from BBTS. I didn't expect them to be out this soon though.

    Sounds like you might be the first to get them :D 

    So how does the shipping work at HLJ? The shipping cost doesn't look too bad...I might try them one day.

    I preorderd Convoy and Megs at amazon jp, should be out in a week or so, but I have to have them shipped to my brother. He's to take Megs out of the box and transform him to the bot mode. (I wanted to be the first!! :lol ) Then they'll be sent out to me in Australia. This is to avoid the confiscation (sp?). So I won't be getting them til the end of the month.

    Pre-ordered Prime from TFSource. For those of you that have pre-ordered from them before, do they notify you when they ship the item?

    I'd like to get Megs (looks so good in the G1 style box), Soundwave, and possible Prime. None pre-ordered...

    I'm hoping job-related stuff picks up so I get more cash...(Anyone in Lancaster County, PA and need to sell/buy a house?)

    Yeah they email you when they ship. Trouble is, I've had multiple orders before so sometimes I'd have to wait and open the box before I knew for sure what's in it.

    I only ordered prime since I have never caught any of the reissues of him. I already have the tru soundwave and I'm not to thrilled with the starscream. I prefer my classics version a lot better. As far as megs, I didn't have one of him either and I went back and forth about him or TFC 06. I went with the TFC since it was only 15 more but came with a lot more extras.

    Well see I guess. :mail 

    From reading they're site it's by weight and zone. Being as I'm in the North American zone I figure if I pay less than 2000 Yen for shipping I'll be lucky.

    I preordered from bbts when they hit my card I'll assume they shipped it and post on here. This is my first G1 Megatron and I've been down since 84. Can not wait to bust that guy out! TX

    I'll be preordering starscream sometime within the next two weeks. Prime I'm shopping around for first.

    I preordered mine from F2F and they should be getting them this week. So it looks like if you preordered from a Japanese retailer than they should be shipping them out this week and the US retailers should get them in a week or two.

    As for who will be released after these four, I am almost certain that Jazz will be one of them.
