    Thanks. He looks good to me. Definitely bulky.

    Great choice! This figure is beyond solid and yeah people always forget that Springer was "chubby" they want all their boys to be mr universe. I highly recommend the reprolabels set for this guy. It has the perfect cut out for that indentation on the chest

    Thanks, I'll check out that reprolabel set as well.

    There's something wrong here. Third quarter is almost over and he's nowhere to be found.

    Just bit the bullet on that BBTS preorder. Who knows if it'll come through at this point, but with zero risk, why not?

    $60 seems like a steal. I'm not 100% in love with the robot mode sculpt from pics, but I feel Allen's the only 3P offering (except XTB perhaps?) to nail the appearance of both vehicle modes. Plus he seems to get high marks for how he handles in-hand. Looking forward to him!

    It will come through... UT isn't going anywhere and neither is BBTS. I think this and Open Play Spring will itch my Springer scratch; for the moment.

    Why is there worry about it not coming through? Is there word that UT is closing shop or something?

    That's how I feel -- love the alt modes, toy looks extremely playable, and the non-toon elements of the bot mode don't bother me that much.

    That being said, anyone have suggestions for paint and color if I wanted to repaint the legs and face for accuracy?

    Nah, nothing like that. Just looking at the rumblings of discontent in this thread from folks that pre-ordered him months ago.

    Pre-ordered him 5 months ago and third quarter is almost over. Still nothing.

    So the preorder is for a 2nd wave of UT Allen for $60?
    Is BBTS the only place to get it for $60?

    Yes and yes.

    My guess is BBTS bought all of the remaining stock of this guy and was able to get it at a discount because of this and they're surface shipping these sale pieces. It took forever for them to get their TFC shipments in, but they finally did.

    I'm waiting for this and Sworder both. I'd always planned on getting them eventually so it was a nice surprise when BBTS hacked their prices in half right around the time I decided to place an order. It's been a looooooooong wait though and I've been tempted to pay more elsewhere. Patience....

    Yep, got notices for this and Sworder! Hopefully it's one of those 10 day notices where it's actually available the day after the notice. :D
