    Might want to hit up @Pun-3x since he seems to not want Hauler.

    GOOOD GOOOOOOOD! LET THE MONEY FLOW FORTH FROM YOUR WALLET! :lol 

    Okay to be serious though if your gonna get a Dianaut, you might want to pay the Takara tax and get a legit one, the ko's are notorious for not lasting.

    Ultimately it is your money but might I suggest these two for consideration.

    DA90- You get a Dianaut, a bike, and a container for said bike for around $25.
    Mandarake Online Shop

    or D-03 - THIS one actually has a Dianaut close to Ga'medes colors plus you get a nice buggy and trailer for him to conduct SCIENCE WITH VIOLENCE! Or potentially if you only want a Dianaut and no extra fluff you could pop into the Diaclone reboot thread and see if anyone is interested in the set minus just the one Dianaut.

    Well Dr Wu, I would've bought one set of Preceptor and Grapple. Instead I will buy nothing.

    I'm getting both Perceptor sets and would be happy to sell Grapple by himself if anyone is interested

    I can’t remember the last time I bothered applying a faction sticker. I think most look better without them.

    I tend to agree with that... I can deal with tampography but sometimes those stickers tend to cheapen figures imho.

    I recall when Toyhax made those reprolabel stickers for WST Transformers... Although nostalgic, the stickers made the figures look corny.

    Too bad Hasbro can't seem to get any Perceptors face to look good.

    It's going to be randomly packed!?! Oh that's not right Dr. Wu, for shame sir, just make them a limited run thing if you don't want to do a full production run. Not a fan of that if that is indeed true.

    【Pre-order】Dr.Wu DW-E25 Microscope Perceptor DW-E26 Grapple Inferno Set of 2
    【Pre-order】Dr.Wu DW-E27 Black Mirror Perceptor DW-E28 Grane Hook Inferno Set of 2

    ~edit~
    NOW they are saying you will get the tables if you pre-order. OY VEY make up your mind already!

    For a moment there I thought it was one of Dr. Wu's infamous selling tactics in order to get us to purchase multiple copies of the same figure.

    EDIT: Imagine buying two sets in order to secure a medical bed and crapping out on both... :mad: 

    I honestly believe that it was Dr. Wu's intention to do just that. I mean it's his MO... He wanted those who didn't receive a medical bed to double-dip in order to secure one. I say this because I'm assuming that ShowZ obviously gets this info directly from Dr. Wu, and that's why it was posted that the medical beds were going to be randomly packaged.

    Either Dr. Wu came to his senses and realized that he would lose customers as a result of this very poor business decision, or ShowZ recognized that this tactic would ultimately result in a loss of potential, as well as already placed preorders. SMH...

    2nd EDIT: Now that I'm thinking about it I'm certain that this was the case because why post that the medical bed is a preorder only incentive when that was previously posted already??? That's because Dr. Wu was about to pull a dirty one lol. Either he didn't want to produce enough beds for every preorder or he wanted us to place multiple orders.

    Glad I have no interest in the medical bed— whatever the color— so I can skip the drama. I’d have thrown out the accessory anyway.

    Yeah, I am glad this is all sorted out. All the Weibo posts are filtered through Google Translate, but I never had the impression that beds were exclusive to one retailer.

    Not super thrilled about repaints each being paired with a toon deco (though the Perceptor Microman repaint is growing on me with toy head) so giving the med-table the blind box treatment really would have left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Hopefully Wheeljack will be handled better.

    If I get it and you cover the shipping cost, you can have it.

    Again— it’s irrelevant to my situation. I don’t ever pre-order, and I’m not interested in accessories. I’ll literally be more satisfied with the purchase if I don’t get the med bed.

    It would've left a bitter taste in everyone's mouths and it also would've been false advertising on ShowZ Store's end. That's exactly why that little stunt didn't gain too much traction, thankfully.

    I'd be lying if I said that wasn't in the back of my mind...

    I'm the opposite... When I first read that BS statement it nearly put me in a med bed, lol.

    Yup. I have two sets ordered for that purpose. :) 

    I’ve ended up buying an unfortunate number of duplicate figures over the years to be both SG and Diaclone versions. Stupid double-duty color schemes, haha.

    It’s a bummer that Magnificus and Hauler aren’t packed together. Partly because they’re both E-Hobby dudes, and partly because Hauler can make a passable SG Grapple (thus making it more worth doubling up on the set). As it is I’m debating what to do with the extra Grapple. Turn him into an G version somehow?
