    I would love Soundwave but IF he does happen it'll be a LONG time till we hear about it... we got lots of bots to go before him sadly.

    Yep, unfortunately, I know, especially after TLK Barry got shelved, I'm sure it's really more of a pipe dream at this point.

    I just received mine just under 2 weeks ago, and it was ordered direct through Bambaland. I would think you still have a bit of time until you receive yours, since it was through a retailer?

    Where did you order from? I received mine from Bambaland two months ago.

    Sideshow and other retailers get 3A’s product fairly late it seems. Bambaland sends out the batches by their availability. It doesn’t seem they were prepared for this many orders.

    BBTS. Never again. But I got into the 3A game late, and he was already sold out everywhere else.

    Yep, understood, I too jumped ship from BBTS. Seemed regardless of the item, people already had it in hand and I was still waiting for it be received by them. I really did want to support then, but....

    So I’ve finally got both of mine coming next week (can’t believe it) and was just wondering is there anything to watch out on with Bumblebee? I know Optimus has the delicate waist joint but I haven’t heard anything about Bee yet

    I would say be careful with the hips and shoulders. They both seem very stiff and don’t like to move much. I’ve also seen some issues with the shoulder panels falling off too.

    Just got Bumblebee today but accidentally broke off a few tiny plastic pieces (no biggie, my fault) can anyone suggest a good glue to use or an adhesive?

    Any liquid crazy glue or super glue seems to do the trick for me. Use in moderation.

    Thanks, I’ll look into some different super glues. Anyone else having difficulties with Bumblebee’s lateral arm movement? The ratchet joints on mine seem super tight and I’m terrified they might break

    Yes, mine are definitely snug, though they seem to be ever so slightly easing up. I've actually not had any issues with any of my 3A's failing at any of the joints. I don't handle them like a 5 year old, but I'm not exactly dainty on them either. I've been very happy I've made my purchases!

    The only joints I'm super concerned about is the thigh swivel, on mine at least, its really tight and just feels like plastic grinding on plastic. My arms have been getting ever so slightly easier to move with more and more use. Don't handle it like a child and don't grip it too hard while moving it around, you should be fine.

    I will definitely be taking a lot of care when moving things, I just can’t help but feel like it’s breaking in certain areas like where the arm connects with the butterfly joints xD
