    I ordered mines on Friday and it shipped out the same day. I expect a delivery of Thursday Sept. 2nd....can't wait. This will most likely be my last purchase at least for a month or two as I have moving plans, saving money, etc. You know the drill..haha

    I ordered 2 sets from TFSource, one in June, another in July. They havent billed me yet, but I assume thats because they have so many preorders they are just going on chronological order..Any day now I assume!

    did anyone else take a dremmel to the back bottom corners of swindles head to allow him to look up? and did anyone have a heck of time getting the new gestalt head on? i wish i could figure a way to remove the cab from brut's chest and replace it with a chest shield but theres all these hinges and connections, i dont know where to cut, but i just feel like thats what he is missing plus the cab just looks like a giant single boob in the middle of his chest :)

    We've been patient long enough. I'll tell you what we're gonna do. First, we grab ourselves acouple of ski masks, a set of crowbars, and break in and rob BBTS blind! I mean, just get our sets and gently close the door behind us.

    seriously I am looking forward to the upgrade sets selling out so the price onthe remaining Bruticus sets drops to a sane price.

    Won't happen.

    The set is too cool and the demand will only go up when people see this thing in videos and on display. That's what happened to me with the city commander and trying to find a UM to put it in. I was lucky enough to hold out until the re-issue though :D 

    Still paid too much for UM though.

    I'm just glad I have an extra Brute max set, in case I decide I need another FP upgrade set to display in vehicle/bot modes.

    Mine shipped today.

    I didn't get mine from any of the online stores though. Got mine from a group buy at $95 shipped.

    Mine will be here friday according to tracking, AND from the looks of it, a bit sooner than the rest of the combaticons, which is fine by me since I really want a day or so with just Explorer and Munitioner.

    I'm order 1300+ on tfsource. I really hope mine gets out tomorrow. But if they just got to ~9500, I have doubts about it.

    Both Explorer/Munitioner and ROTF Bruticus are in transit. The latter is in Maryland (USPS) and the former is in Illinois (UPS). I expect to have them both by the end of the week. I would laugh if they were all on my doorstep at the same time. How fitting.

    Mine were sent out yesterday by TFsource. I am in Canada so I will assume an arrival time of late next week.

    This wait is killer.

    waiting and waiting, kapow won't have there's till next week unfortunately so it's probably going to be this time next week. Impatient doesn't describe. I ended up getting the rest of powercore wave one to try fill the void (done with them once these get here i'm sure.shoulder and elbows ftw)
