    That sucks majorly for those that preordered Eva Prime.

    I bought a substandard EVA from them before it went OOS. I just got it today and the box is perfect.

    Ooo... how awesome it would be to find out that this was the fate of TFSource's MIA inventory.

    Yes... he'll follow BApe Prime, I'd imagine.

    I ordered from TFS and was SUPER bummed when I got the news. I'm holding on to my preorder just in case. But in the meantime, a KO will do nicely as a display if I can find one. It just sucks because this version of the MP-10 is in my company colors. So I was psyched to rock him on my desk!!

    I had pre order with TFsource. 1st Big mistake.

    I saw BBTS had them for $379 but sub standard packaging. I did not buy due to MISB collector. 2nd mistake.

    The guy who got the last one said box was perfect.

    Well, I luck was on my side this time.

    Picked up last 1 with original brown mailer box for $410 shipped.

    Paid a little more, but that was OK. This guy is GONE.

    I don't mean to resurrect a zombie thread, but this is the most appropriate place for this info... After getting hosed by TF Source on EVA Convoy and having dogged them about that fact on several occasions, I must now stand down and give them their due! I received an email from TF Source last night letting me know that they had received some additional stock of MP-10EVA Convoy and would be honoring my original order that I had kept in my Stack. For an order that is nearly 3 years old (original release date was December 2014) this was an unexpected surprise.

    Kudos to TF Source for making this right, even if it took 32 months!

    Yes. 2.5 years later...

    I know, right?

    Damn near 3 years. Doesn't seem that long at all. I was surprised when I saw the original release date of December 2014.

    Wonder if they've got enough to put some more up for sale. I'd definitely have to consider that

    Well, I just came to update this same thread as I just got mine! It's unbelievable but it's here. They don't have enough to fulfill all orders, a friend who also ordered called and he was too far down in the list to get one.

    That is great to hear! I called TF Source to confirm payment and asked about how many they received. It was around 10 or so. Pretty crazy that they took care of this so long after the fact.

    I was wondering if other people got the same email. I couldn't believe they got some units after so long and that they would even honor the pre-order price.

    With some Source points discounting the price, its gonna be an amazing deal.

    I'm gonna miss that little picture in my stack though. I would have deleted it long ago if it wasn't for the nostalgia/memory of what happened to that shipment.
