    I caved and bought a DX9 Gewalt on reissue. If Gabriel is anything to go by, I hope he'll be a decent enough stand in until Fantoys gets their stuff together. Blitzwing pretty much the only Decepticon missing from my line up (and Astrotrain but at least I know we'll get Thomas this year...)

    Gewalt's a great bot, I think/hope you'll enjoy him.

    If you're only expecting decent then I think you'll surely be impressed

    I will likely buy this no matter how long it takes to come out but for $90 I think I'll get the KFC as a placeholder.

    I've got Gewalt, and I've got Berzerk on pre-order. I'm keeping both... Gewalt's that good.

    So, I have Berserk preordered at The Chosen Prime, but obviously don’t know when it is coming out; the $144.99 is already fully paid. I am considering cancelling to get Ditka. Thoughts? Thank you in advance. Also, if anybody has more news, obviously that would be great too

    Well I'd be shocked if you ended up getting him for the $145 you've spent. Expect a top up request to $220+ when the redesigned version is due for release. That might be enough to make your mind up...

    Hello all,

    Thank you for your thoughts. For those wondering, I decided to go with Ditka. Not only is it much cheaper, but I was able to get some other figures with my store credit.

    Gave in and decided to get Gewalt instead of Ditka, the more I look at Gewalt the more I like about him as Blitzwing.

    Still gonna hold on my preorder for Berserk since I actually managed to get a Fanstoys figure for once :p

    Got Ditka today. He is pretty awesome, though I am not a fan of the super-articulated fingers. They're cool, but a pain at the same time.

    Too bad I've already got one paid for at Captured Prey that I'll never see....

    That's why I like using TCP - you can secure a preorder with nothing out of pocket....and just get billed when it arrives.

    I'd never pay for something in full that was potentially years away....

    I also like paying in bits every once in a while, making the final bill less big

    I picked up the reissue of Gewalt recently, as with many others in this thread. No regrets - he's a great bot, tons of presence and a lot of fun to play with.

    That said, I'm still going to get Berserk when it comes out, assuming we haven't all died of old age by then. I would say I doubt this will ever come out, but I said the same thing about Duke Nukem Forever and, well....let's hope this turns out better. :D

    Any updates on this guy? Been away from collecting for so long and this will be my first FT piece since Quakewave.

    'fraid not. I'd say next TFCon we might get something in regards to him. Don't quote me on that of course.

    Actually speaking of TFcon, did we ever get word about a virtual 3P panel coming soon or no?
