    I have been collecting since the eighties, I learned to be patient with stuff. :)  My Legends Blurr took 1 month to arrive from Taiwan just now - free shipping, but it was 38$ only and got past customs, so I am not complaining.
    Hopefully I can take Megatronia from customs this week, and yeah, charges are a definite thing now, but eh, you win some, you lose some.

    aw...i was actually rooting for you getting yours by now. mines still in "pre-shipment-labeled" hell, the jeep's still in the garage (at least until tomorrow) and the phone's all glitchy, si i can't call the PO....

    i'm learning to distract myself form impatience by taking a few walks, listening to music, and playing games....sometimes all three.....

    i hope i learn to be patient faster.....its killing me....

    Mine too, I'm so tempted to email Scramble to find out what's up before I just go dispute it with Paypal...I'll give them another day before reaching out to them again.

    Not me, this is what I got from SC. Sigh...No way should I have to wait 30 days though...I should just file the paypal dispute...
    "
    The post office says give it 30 days from the ship date, which is wrong, IMO.
    If it hasn't arrived within those 30 days, contact me again.

    We still have one on hold if the post office falls through so don't worry about not being able to get Megatronia.

    Megatronia's about as solid a set as I've every encountered in the CW/UW line. Obviously, it's nothing you've not seen before from a mold perspective, but each bot is probably the most solid example of its kind I've encountered.

    Well, that's the guidance the post office gives. That's hardly his fault, and it's nothing to file a PayPal dispute over, if there's a tracking scan - that only makes a bigger mess of things. Especially if they're willing to take care of things regardless.

    I have no desire for Victorian, but this does look tempting.

    Hell yeah! Guess who has new gal pals?

    If there's something I can appreciate about Takara's products is the presentation (for the most part). The UW boxes are perfect for people who just want to keep their figures inside their box but still want to display them nicely.

    20170302_142546[1].jpg
    But we all know that the point is to get the goddamn toys out of their packages. The vehicles are great looking, I love the extra detail Takara gave to all these remoulds.

    20170302_144513[1].jpg

    Then again, the best part of the set is without a doubt the individual robots. Each one of them has an unique colour scheme that quickly makes them stand out despite that we have seen these moulds several times already. The running theme of fembots using melee weapons is also appreciated.

    20170302_150551[1].jpg
    And of course there's the obligatory robot mode which while looks nice in hand, in fact better than I expected, is still flawed sadly. The torso has no proper balance and tends to fall forward so one needs to put both the feet and waist into a particular position to have an actual decent pose. Is not terrible but it is quite disappointing.

    Overall though, I'm loving this set just as much as I expected. Is amazing how a different and more creative paint scheme can make a team that I don't really care for in terms of looks (Victorion) into an instant favorite. This is probably the only UW set that I'm displaying in their individual robot modes, not only because the combined form is flawed but also because their robot modes look so good.

    EDIT: Oh, and obligatory bonus I guess:

    Really like the look of Victorion with the helicopter rear blade turned out like that. Will have to adopt that look on my own!

    I got mine yesterday! Displayed her in combiner mode with car arms, helicopter legs, purple Perfect Effect hands, and purple HFGs attached to back of legs to add some depth. The combined colors are so awesome compared to the drab Victorion scheme. The yellow on Trick Diamond is so fabulous. Mega- fire truck robot mode is a stunning tribute to G1 Megatron, I am hoping to find another at a decent price.

    I was surprised at how it was packaged: gorgeous box wrapped in bubble wrap with coin envelope and instructions tucked between, all inside the original brown box from factory. As I slid the inner box tray out another set of instructions fell to floor (bonus, LOL).

    I'll try to get some pictures posted this week.

    It's too bad these molds were used to death. She really does look nice.
