    Hopefully Tf Source will have a package that features all of the Dinos in one package.

    Don't you think with these exclusive ones that include swoop would be a sign that they are going to indeed make their end of March release? I do.

    Man these Dinos are so cool looking. They'll look great on a Christmas tree!

    Wierd that they got these 2 before the other 2 (sludge & swoop) whatever though

    I just bought both new BTs and figured getting a good deal on the Xmas dinos was a good time to buy and get $10 off.

    Sadly, I don't even care anymore. So far I've got all of the Quints preordered yet have heard nothing about them, I've got Swoop and Sludge preordered, yet they're not here yet, and the same goes for the stuffer.

    If I could, I'd just cancel everything and get my money back *sigh*:banghead:

    I agree...I preordered mine when they first were avaliable for preorder and I've send a few emails asking about them and never heard a thing about them and now they are releasing the stocking stuffer before releaseing the normal bots....man that just bites.

    Man, I love TFSource, but I don't like their description of the bootleg/KO Metrotitan.

    They seem to fail to identify it as an unofficial reproduction aka bootleg. I've bolded their indicators of it being what it is and they fall short of a fair and clear identification of the product! 'There are differences between this and the original G1 toy' is not a clear description to me. It should at least make it clear what it is.

    Here's their description:

    "Remade in all of his G1 greatness, this Metrotitan contains all of the bits and pieces that came with the original G1 toy (as seen above) excluding his orange micromaster. Includes unapplied sticker sheet and includes Metrodash (small red car) and Metrotank (tank). Note: there are differences between the G1 original and this toy, and this toy, however for this price and a case fresh G1 Metrotitan, the price can't be beat! The quality level on this remake is quite good on the whole but of course differs slightly from the original.

    Packaged in identical packaging to the G1 Metroplex (includes sticker as seen above), and includes all of his accessories. Comes MISB with a minty fresh unused toy inside, stickers unapplied and unused parts."

    For those of you gripping about the delay in the normal dinos, step back and think about it for a second: how fragile were the actual G1 real versions of Swoop and Sludge? Did any of us, say, break off one of Swoop's robot legs? Or one of his wings? How about Sludge's dino neck? Or maybe his robot mode wings? Now: make all of those parts much SMALLER. I would think that the delay is due to JUSTITOYS wanting to provide quality product that is not going to snap in two if we sneeze on it. It seems as though they are now satisfied with their "Bombadier" mold, but perhaps they're still working the kinks out of the production run of "Jungle Warrior". Remember: those robot mode wings attach to the body with VERY small connections.

    Quality is good. However, these products are now a half-year LATE from Justitoys' own original release dates. I think such a long delay well exceeds any allowances we grant for making sure quality is maintained.

    (incidentally, smaller toys are generally LESS brittle than larger ones, although making sure the connections themselves aren't wisp-thin is indeed important. Still, this should have been worked out by now. We've been more than fair.)

    My main thing is there have been a few rumors as to the delay starting back last year.
