    I just checked tfsource and it said he was no longer available.
    Does anyone know what that means? I already pre ordered him and would like to know if they scraped the idea or are going to start shipping him out.

    Yep, I ordered the b/w and color version. Been a year or so and nothing. Now not listed on TFSource or BBTS.

    I actually emailed TFsource about this today and I haven't gotten an email back yet. I'll post here if I hear back from them.

    For what it's worth, the color version is still listed on Robot Kingdom, still listed as a December release.

    If the b/w release, at least, is canceled, TFSource better issue a refund. I paid via Paypal to avoid the credit card issues with their website and that was a loooong time ago.

    To my knowledge, the WST Astrotrain (either version) has never been listed as a preorder on BBTS. Just TFSource and Robot Kingdom among the main sites.

    The purple Astrotrain and the Sixshots? They're still on there. I don't know if they ever had the b/w one, I thought that was supposed to be a TFSource exclusive.

    I don't think BBTS ever carried any of the ko WST stuff.

    I do hope to hear something about this, I pre-paid a full year ago.

    You are correct, BBTS doesn't sell WST. I stand corrected :)

    TF Source has pulled all of their Justitoys WST listings. I would guess it's related to them pulling a lot of their iGear listings as well, and the recent shutdown of KOToys.

    Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet!!!!

    The colours look even better than the eHobby one. Darker purple, extendable arms, smaller gun, red eyes and head articulation. So full of win this one :D 
    And it's finally shipping. Thanks for the heads up!

    No reply from TFSource. Hope they refund. The no communication about this is not good.

    Agreed
    I might just threaten to report them to the better business borough. This is ridiculous. Their customer service is horrible?
