    That’s the latest word/rumor I’ve seen as well. Also less patiently here

    Confirmed by @Marcelo Antunes after correspondence with a Chinese store, July.

    Hope it’s actually July this time I’m getting antsy. This is the one I’ve wanted the most

    He's definitely up there as well for me, moreso especially since whole Virtus fiasco (which was looking to be my main Springer on my display), which we've seen no real resolution to aside from a shot of some parts with better colors, nothing about a fully fixed Virtus as of yet.

    Didn’t realize there was a problem with Virtus. I knew about Locke having all the mold issues that they’re fixing, but hadn’t heard anything about Virtus except maybe it getting pushed back until they fix Locke. Either way, I’m in for Apache, cancelled my Virtus PO when the price jumped and Locke had all those issues. I’m kinda done with XTB. I’ll pay for the consistent quality I’ve gotten with all my FT figures to date vs not knowing which XTB is going to show up this time.

    Oh yeah no, nothing on the levels of Locke, thankfully. I'm pretty sure you're aware of them but let's throw out a refresher anyway, haha.

    The aesthetics on Virtus once revealed for solicitation were just... very very odd.

    Going back, it looked like they were going for some sort of Marvel G1 look? Which would seem cool, if not for concept renders already showing that this was going to be a purely G1 toon Springer to begin with.

    Looking back I wanna say it was an artifact of the original plan of both a Standard and Premium version of Springer, which of course we know fell out with the Premium version becoming the only one.

    Also that face sculpt... eugh

    Thankfully they're issues that XTB is WELL aware of and have shown that they are fixing.

    But then came a lot more of the Locke stuff, with him being fixed in July (supposedly) and XTB having to also supposedly fight off a factory making figures under their nose and the owner of it running off with the money that was rightfully Keith's.

    Utter clusterfuck.

    Ok, yeah, was already aware of their design choices. Wouldn’t call those things that need fixing, as it’s their choice in how they choose to represent the character, but I will concede the point. Whatever, they would have to wow me to get me back onto their train.

    Do we think the recent pre order announcements going to effect the release date on this guy again?

    All paid off with Omegalock, can't wait to finally have such a big gap filled.

    It's been a while since I ordered from TFS; do you pay up front for pre-orders or when they receive the shipment?

    I use their Stack feature and pay when the item is in stock. It’s probably the same even if you don’t Stack.
