    Thanks for the news. The waiting is always the hardest part. Beats hearing that they (Hasbro not TFCC) cancelled the production run. Anticipation will begin again in April.

    I'm kind of in the same boat. I wanted Ultra Mammoth and Scourge above all else... and break-even or turn a small profit by selling off all other figures.

    Wouldn't mind cancelling as an option frankly... money is tight atm. >_<

    Given that I should've forseen delays... I really wish I went with the multi-pay route... didn't want to shell another 5-10 bucks for servicing fees though... hah... >_<

    I could care less when they ship, as long as they look good and get here safely. There is enough stuff to entertain me till then. Haven't gone to a botcon, not going to complain that it isn't being hosted in my back yard each year (frankly I would like it somewhere cool when I do decide to go), but it is pretty impressive how the club does always seem to run into issues, over and over and over.

    It is such a small part of my yearly budget, but it is more not caring about next year's subscription figure that is keeping me from the club then the circus surrounding them.

    Personally between all of the stuff last year and now this...it doesn't even phase me. It doesn't even register as putting up with anything. Its a non factor. They're toys. No one needs em.

    Let whatever happens happen. No skin off of my nose. My credit card was compromised and I didn't even care. Everything was taken care of poste haste. Nice enough people. No more of a hassle than waiting in line. Will never understand why people get so upset at them.

    I'm a bit curious myself if this is going to affect the payment schedule. Anyone else only get charged with the first of the three?

    THIS!!! Shit happens in life. TO EVERYONE. It's nice if it didn't but you can't control everything.

    I'm bummed about the delay but MP-Soundwave will be in my hands later this week so I'll survive. Seriously. So much stuff came out this last month that I have a back log of stuff that needs to get opened. I also have to rework the room a little too.

    dude, that's literally the first thing i thought of! so funny.

    me too. if it's not going to be for awhile, then the money i have set aside for now can be used on some 3rd party stuff instead.

    some people get upset because they've been dealing with this same company making mistake after mistake for years. I'm not one of them, as I've had generally pleasant experience with them, prior to 2012. I'm definitely rethinking joining again this year, which sucks, because I've been a member since the 2nd or 3rd year, but it's just frustrating.

    What kind of reasoning is that? They don't produce the toys, what kind of control can they have?

    Getting your credit card information released is a pretty big deal to most people. Sure it can be easily fixed, but it is not acceptable. Also, they are a business. These sort of delays are incredibly unprofessional... Glenn was fired after 2 years by the same company that is putting up with these guys... I do not get it. I personally don't care about this delay, but the blame game they play is über annoying. So you shouldn't discredit other people's emotions when they become frustrated with the TCC.

    Yep! Which hopefully means he is the first to be sent. Ebay seller heavenmax2011 had them up for sale and also seen in hand images on taobao

    That's actually why I'm excited. I've already secured an Ultra Mammoth from a fellow member who broke up his set, but it'll be nice if he's in the first shipment so I don't have to wait.
