    Seriously, I pre-ordered back in Feb. I figured mine should have shipped at the latest Sat. But, maybe they did ship, just have not updated my account.
    Hopefully the second answer, because if not, this may keep me from buying from them in the future.

    Agreed. Although they're now at least in the warehouse, I don't understand why Explorer and Munitioner are listed as "in stock" when all the preorders for them have not been processed and shipped out.

    I will start to become very suspicious if my order isn't processed and my tracking info isn't received by Wednesday evening.

    I've been out of touch for nearly a month..I had seen the prototype pics of Rodimus Prime, but had to idea MP09 would also convert to Hot Rod! :drool:

    Yeah, it's steep (and it may be a placeholder price too). But it also looks like MP09 is the most complex to date.

    To all you complaining about the price, I mean yeah it's more expensive than other masterpiece but it's a completely different mold. You've already decided if you're buying it or not, so really what's 40 dollars? I mean most people spend that if not more on a single order anyways.

    It's something new and awesome and I for one am ecstatic that it's not another freakin' repaint!

    Just suck it up and order it :)

    I'm definately hoping for a US release of Rodimus. 200 bucks is alot, but I understand the price.
