    I hope the reissue figures (Split and the others) come in stock soon! I ordered compressor so in a few weeks I'll have a torso, one arm and one leg without a damn head.

    Oh, that's what broke for you? Sorry to hear that. I can say with confidence though that those green posts aren't going anywhere on my figure. Either you got extremely unlucky (twice, it sounds like), I got lucky, or they fixed the issue with the recent new batch of Smash figures.

    That's awesome! Mine is fully paid off so hopefully that means it will ship soon.

    My Smash took about two weeks to ship from payment request. It's still making It's way here and hasn't landed in country yet. So probably still a bit of wait time.

    Has anyone ever bought from bombusbee.net? How long does it take to ship out?

    I got Smash from them recently. They are a good company. Takes about the same time as any of the other Chinese stores like showz or tf-direct. Should ship out in 3-4 days.

    I don't have any inside sources, but just going off of the information we all have access to I would guess we'll start seeing Sweeping roll out in the next month or two.
    Since the next batch of Split figures are shipping soon that means they've all been manufactured, likely some time ago now, so I would imagine they have the factories working on Sweeping now in Split's place. This would line up with the fact that a couple of production samples of Sweeping were sent out to people to review about a month ago.

    Finally I had time to properly mess with SMASH and despite some issues I have with him (robot mode having not enough bulk, the truck being a bit too small and the foot mode is a bit too much trouble than it's worth) I think he's great :)  Or at least not as bad as some reviewers say... Surprisingly well articulated with all that engineering inside!

    But to hear that he's "nowhere near as bad as Split" is concerning :redface2:

    So an update: turns out the TFDirect listings are preorders just like at showz, it's just much harder to see on their site. I messaged them telling them that it's not really obvious at all when something's a preorder, and they messaged back saying basically "you're not wrong". So looks like I'll be waiting a while longer for compressor, unless I find him somewhere else for a decent price, but I don't think anywhere has him in stock for close to the $115 I paid at TFD.

    PS: Fuck TFSource and their absurd prices!

    Honestly, after you wrap your head around Splits transformation, it’s not that awful. First time I did it it took me the better part of two hours, but after watching stop motion transformations it made it a lot easier to understand it all. I’ve warmed up to him :)  3AFEDC95-7C33-4F54-95DB-96AD05BBA06C.jpeg

    This makes me excited to get my Split, he should hopefully be in stock on ShowZ soon. He's a challenge that ngl I have been looking forward to!

    Thanks for the link, but it's actually more expensive with shipping. Have you used TFS Express before? I'll consider it.
