    Upon renewing my membership with the TFCC, I had requested that they email me to let me know for sure if I made it by the end of the business day yesterday in order to get heatwave for free. (I'm a Pro' Crastinator, I know).

    In the email I received, it was also mentioned an estimate of when heatwave should ship. Here's the bulk of the email:

    usually we don't see them until June, and in some rare instances, July. This seems to be pretty good progress, provided that it happens.

    Yay!
    Always nice to add another one of The Thirteen to my collection.
    Although, I guess, I already have 4/5ths of him.

    I'll be impessed if they hold to that. IIRC, initial estimates for every year's "free" figures have been considerably earlier than when they finally shipped.

    P.S.: We need pics of the new combiner head. :D

    Got the first 4 arriving on Thursday. Glad I just barely squeezed into the cutoff date by signing up on Saturday.

    I hope those 3rd party combiner limbs work for this figure. Better yet, I hope they make clear plastic versions of them.

    Do these just ship in bags or do they have cool packaging?

    Meh... well I guess that's fine. I can just leave them in Gestalt mode on the display shelf. My shelf for keeping awesome boxes is getting kinda full.

    Not really, but there's a possibility it will have "Prime" in it.
    As it is one of the original Thirteen transformers, and they were all considered Primes.

    I was planning on getting the limb I still need at Botcon and save on shipping. Hmm, might rethink that.

    The preview comic they had was pretty interesting. Can't wait to see the whole story and can't wait to get mine. It's been a long wait trying to complete this guy. I'm gonna call him Shennaiganimus Prime.

    Has anyone even noticed that his arm has the Shatter Glass Decepticon symbol on it? That my friends is a RED Decepticon symbol, so he is a Con, but a good Con!
