    The mooncake and the plane for November/December at those providers? :rolleyes: 

    Pphhtt.. You’re not going to see that until the latter Q2/beginning of Q3 2022. Look at the shipping ports as it’s totally backed up (or unless you transport them a la Star Trek technology).

    Does anyone know if there is a place that still sells the trays for the DIOs? I bought a bunch of the boxchargers without realzing the new boxchargers don't come with the trays that the original ones did. I found some of the first gen in pink, but I would prefer clear. If anyone knows someone that has a 3D printable solution, i'll take that as well and just print my own.

    No chance for this clears. 52Toys on AmazonJP releases a couple of blue ones on occasion.

    Another collector printed these: https://twitter.com/foxracingfive/status/1392648202269069312?s=21

    Are the Turtles exclusive at all? Heard they might be China exclusive or something like that because of the Playmates license. Not sure if that was just speculation.

    Show-Z is probably the best bet (for price, and assuming they get more in stock.) I am assuming they are China only, though some eBay sellers also have them.

    Sadly it seems like small sellers are getting less product as 52 Toys moves to have more official first party stores and that means Show-Z is selling out quicker than they used to.

    I recently just bought 2 box chargers from AliExpress store they are supposed to get to me by the 18th of October I bought it 3 days ago no tracking yet but I'll keep the form posted, I have little hope that it will be Ex-01wt but If it isn't I'll just dispute it and hopefully get my money back.

    I was kinda hesitant at first. I don't know if there is specific source material but my head canon for them made me rethink that and I'm happy I preordered.

    I imagine that they are two earth-built unmanned interceptor prototypes whose AI gets corrupted by cybertronian code.

    They like to take the enemy out by flanking them in hit-and-run dogfights or by one acting as a decoy while the other plows right through from any given direction.

    In combined robot mode it moves at supersonic speeds to outmaneuver its target, its goal is to harvest key components from advanced military hardware to build a body for its master to download into.

    Its main weakness is in its primitive design. As a prototype, it wasn't meant for long term use and not built for endurance. It requires frequent maintenance and replacement of wearing parts and has poor shielding against EMP's.

    So i didn't know there's 52toys thread on tfw until now. I used to have deep one, teardrop and the black spider (forgot the name), but ended up sold them after few weeks as i'm not feeling it on any of them. However, after i saw icarus, my interest came back, and after seeing the official promo pics i decided to give this line another chance. I put my preorder for icarus yesterday. His unique look that feels like a blend of evangelion and modern macross just seems to hit in the right spot. Here's hoping he is as fun when i have him in hand.

    As an avid fan of the Ace Combat series and Jet Fighters in general I think their individual jet modes are stunning. Especially the fact that they seem to completed avoid the "robot with a jet backpack" syndrome that plague most transformers while still having working cockpits and landing gear. That said, their combine bot mode is ridiculous looking lol. Definitely going to be displaying them as individual jets in flight on my "Jet shelf" along with Eagle Robo, Transformers/Topgun Maverick, Takara Legends Jetfire and Earthfall Sandstorm.
