    I'm hoping these guys do some repaints of this dude, that are not exclusives.

    Ordered at TCP, can’t wait, and usually don’t have to long with them.

    Eeeeeeeks! I just did that thing we do sometimes where you quickly place an order and then go cancel your order for the same thing at a different shop. Thanks! :D

    I do it all the time, my only loyalty is to getting things fastest and cheapest so my wife doesn’t have my head. Just did it with this (and thorner/rager)

    Yeah, for years I had a pretty solid loyalty to [SHOP NAME REDACTED] but over the last year or so they seem to routinely be the last to get their stuff in stock, and their recent site redesign is ass, so...not so loyal anymore.

    Their recent site design is ass. Shame, too, because it used to be the best one, IMO. Super easy to find stuff. Not anymore, though.

    Oh god I hate it. It's not because I am adverse to change, I work in an industry that has constant software/website upgrades and updates all the time, but when the user interface goes from "Click, click, done" to "Click...uh...oh, that thing is...where is it? It's a whole different page now instead of an option on the order page? OK...click....oh shit it's automatically set on $4 donkey post, I used to have everything set to UPS, I guess I need to change the settings...wait, It always auto sets to $4 donkey post for every order? *sigh* Click...done?" it becomes a problem.

    Agree. I'm fine with changes, as long as they're improvements. I also feel like I need to jump through hoops just to get to the 3P section. Sometimes there's a link on the front page. Other times I need to search for a 3P product, then click on the company name just to work my way to the general 3P section. Glad to know I'm not the only one frustrated by it.

    As for hot flame, I REALLY like the bot mode. But the alt mode is a hot mess, IMO. If I didn't already have Calidus, I might have considered this guy instead. But that alt mode isn't going to get me to double dip. If someone could frankenstein me a Hot Flame bot mode with a Calidus alt mode, that would be super.

    Oh like how if you want to check tracking you have to click no less than FIVE TIMES? Yeah. It's buttocks.

    On the other hand, Hot Flame is knees. Bee's knees. You see? I've gotta get this guy.

    Yes! There is a whole world of terrible flavors to enjoy there now. Bleh. Anyway, yes, Hot Flame is most definitely chock full of bee knees.

    My tracking from Chosen Prime updated and according to their system, Hot Flame should be delivered tomorrow on Friday the 13th. What could possibly go wrong on the journey?

    Same here! Funny how I started the day Wednesday wondering when Hot Flame would be released and will be opening him up on Friday.

    Yup, I'm absolutely hating the redesign as well.


    Hell....I haven't bought anything there since the redesign either.
