    There's a bit of a time-lag there. Robot Kingdom operates out of Hong Kong, right at the source, so they're the first to get most of these toys. Domestic retailers like TFSource have to wait to get theirs shipped to them first, before they can be listed as being "in stock". So that's a fair assessment. RK early December, everybody else a week or two later.

    Which makes me wonder when they'll actually have them in stock and ready to ship. With post offices in North America and elsewhere, really, already busy with Christmas packages and what not, I wouldn't be too surprised if many don't get their orders until around or after Christmas without expedited shipping (and that might be pushing it, especially for Dr. Crank).

    That's what EMS shipping is for.

    Do they still deliver within 3 to 5 days during the Holidays? I figure items are shipped as quickly as possible with such services, but I wouldn't be too surprised if they get hung up somewhere along the way (not trying to jinx anyone, I just know this is a busy time for the post office). Japan Post had notices last month telling customers to ship Christmas items by next week to make sure they arrived at their overseas destinations prior to or on Christmas.

    I'm eager to see if the the shovel if molded or painted green.
    At first I thought it wasn't practical to paint it, but after seeing the green bits on HL's forearms, I think it'll work...

    Remember that next month is December. Shipping delays galore, what with Christmas and all.

    Yessss......

    I'm actually glad Structor is next, that thing is just beautiful. Look at that thing....damn near perfection.

    Maybe they are gonna fix Dr Crank's face a little? He's the only face that didnt nail it, IMO. He looks too much like Cyclonus or something.

    Hopefully TFS will still have a United Scourge and them PE FrenzyRumbles for me when I order Structor.......I've got 2 'sweeps' sealed in the closet waiting for their leader....

    Great news!

    Something about the face sculpt on each one of these feels slightly off. This one, it's the little side-grips on the face place. Hmmmmm.

    Preordered via TFSource a while back... Figured if you save $10 getting both bots, and a bit less ship price by stacking it with a couple other TF items. (Turns out a few items are also cheaper than BBTS so yea...) Still a bit more than ordering it overseas and shipping... but can't hold a shipment of items with those stores... so...

    Never had significant delays with EMS during Xmas time. Regular airmail can be slower though.
