    Redesign hasn't bothered me.. I have been able to preorder and move about the site pretty easily on my phone. But everyone is right about how slow or last they are at getting stuff. That said, $4 shipping typically makes BBTS the cheaper option after shipping costs. So I'll be fine with the wait.

    Yeah I’m never really in a rush to get items. I just like that they offer collector grade packaging which allows the items to arrive in better condition (usually), which is why I stick with them. And you’re right, the $4 shipping is nice.

    Does anyone think Nautica might be retooled from Hot Flame? He does have some svelte, feminine features. I could see it working.

    If SXS produces a version of Nautica, do y'all think she'll be a unique mold or a Rodimus remold?

    I guess we both thought the same thing when we saw that photo.

    It might work. It would be interesting to see them make a sub mode out of that. Id prefer a totally new mold though.

    I hope that Nautica is a teaser.

    Hmm. That COULD explain the protruding chest piece somewhat.

    Her vehicle mode pretty much looks like a Cybertronian car with fans on the sides - and resembles Hot Flame's vehicle mode as well... pointed front, raised cockpit in the middle, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if remold is the route they are taking.

    Do we also expect a Getaway from this mold, like MMC teased about Calidus, I wonder?

    Depends on the release for me, but like with 3rd party I can wait. Takara MPs go hand in hand with cheap and fast since I import them, so sometimes it works out lol

    Nauts has some smooth pick up lines.

    Eh, I don't feel like this design lends itself well enough to the Getaway look as well as Calidus does. But I'm still not super convinced that Nautica would be a remold from Hot Flame either.

    I am all for Nautica being a remold of Hot Flame as long as they do the robot mode justice and it means I can get the toy in my hands faster

    God yes, please do a Nautica - given how fast Fembots sell out I'm amazed nobody has announced one yet.

    Just saw Ben’s Collectibles review of this guy. He said the plastic seems somewhat fragile. Don’t like the sound of that too much...hopefully it’s not too bad. Otherwise it sounds like a GCreation Prime situation where it looks great on a shelf but scary to handle

    Every time I look at this guy I like the bot mode more and more, and like the alt mode less and less.
