    Dear decemberist,

    Desperately looking for help here! My brand new sealed bumblebee came missing a piece, can you help me get that part? I'd really appreciate it. Picture here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...ee-official-announcement-37.html#post13225011

    Sorry that happened. Email CS@ThreeAonline.com with your order number and the image. If they have the part in stock they'll be able to send it to you, if they don't, they have to manufacture a new one which can take a long time.

    The "delay" is not news. ThreeA and ThreeZero are always months late.

    Megatron came out 3 months later than planned. Optimus is going to be almost 6 months later than planned. Starscream was supposed to be September/October so this isn't all that much.

    It is par for the course at this point and not just for their transformers figures. I have quite a few releases from them and they were all at least 3 months later than their advertised release date. Pretty much all the 3rd party transformer developers are the same. There are a lot of cogs in the toy industry machine and the smaller developers are usually the ones hit the most. Factories place these small production runs as very low priority. Especially around this time of year when the big boys are ramping up and throwing money at them to put their product at the top of the production list. Small companies get left behind and products delayed.

    It IS pretty awesome, but Hunt for the Decepticons Leader Starscream more than fills the spot for me, that figure is perfection.

    Only thing I wish is that the scale between figures was more in scale with the movies. Especially Bee.

    I love how once more than one of these figures is placed in a photo it's hard to tell what you're looking at and where one ends and the other begins because the designs are so absolutely ridiculous.

    Great Photos!!!! We got word that this is shipping out to us at the end of November. We still have a couple available for Pre-Order, but I suspect those won't last long now!

    That\'s so nice looking, shame all the screen accurate figures are so expensive. I\'d love to see something with this level of detail but at a smaller, more affordable scale.

    Anyway, they all look great together :)

    I'm not having any problems discerning between them, so maybe it's just you.
