Our own TRANSJAZZ reports in telling us that ToyHobby & Ganbo Store notified customers via email that their exclusive Henkei Dirge and Thrust toys are going to be released in April.

There was no reason given for the delay, but keep checking TFW2005 for any updates for the release of these figures!

Eh, this works out to be a little better for my wallet so I'm good.

...Or perhaps resources are being directed towards movie toys.

Takara Tomy toys? Delayed? How can this be!?
Mumps
So... is this being delayed so the price can be reduced? Or am I just destined never to have a Henkei or Classics Thrust and Dirge?

Decided to pass on these, save more money for this summer.

Everything TF from Takara gets delayed nowadays.

More pointedly: Takara handle production for Hasbro's Transformers as well.
So, odds are they're prioritizing movie toys above everything else. As such, don't be surprised if these (limited/small production run) items are delayed again.

Seconded. What's another week or two after waiting this long. No problem on my end at all.
DigitalDreamer
yea not really a big deal, it gives us more time.

Good, I could use a short break. I'm been terrified all my late pre orders would come in at once. If they came in when their supposed to this wouldn't be a problem.

Hmm...a little annoying, but if it's only a few weeks than I'm not too worried about it. I was hoping they'd come together with MP Grimlock (I preordered them at the same time) but oh well. As long as I get them, I'll be happy.
Railguard
Huh, doesn't matter to me, I have no money to get anything anyway.

Nope. The factories in China are sub-contractors hired to produce a certain toy line.

I wouldn't mind the delay so much if MP Grimlock wasn't bundled with the same order

same here.

Eh it is almost the end of March right now anyway. I can wait another week or two.
keebs
At least they're not made by Justitoys. It could be 2011 before we see them
Chaosbringer
bummer :|

Here's hoping the delay is due to mold repair. I don't want side arm missiles that fall out.

It's fairly well known that toy companies don't actually own the factories in which their toys are made.

Was it not said somewhere that Takara are in charge of picking which factories Hasbro's Transformers production is sub-contracted out to? Even if that's not the case, i still believe it's a case of production of more widely available transformers being prioritized over more limited ones.
lars573
Well I never heard that (for as little as that means ). But when you consdier the co-production that Transformers has always been. Who knows who actually awards the manufacturing contracts.

I got a mail last night, says that Gentei Dirge had shipped. probably I can grab him today or so.
megatronkicksas
*sigh* Well that sucks.
DJCHARTERS
im confused then, has henkei dirge been released? just with him saying it had been shipped
