    I just want to see it when other fans get their copies of the second batch and confirm the issue is fixed.

    Still waiting on my Sheridan from Terry's. It cleared LA customs on the 22nd and no movement since.

    At least mine has left China. I am guessing it will be here next week.

    Won't get my Sheridan until Hunk is released so hoping it ends up being a second run version.

    No movement...the wait is killing me. I think I'll ask them again once I see 2nd wave hitting other e-tailers, until then I'm going to try and wait (biting my nails)

    Yep, my order from LBP has been paid and shipped. It's in the consolidation warehouse with FT IceMan. Got a couple more things to order (MMC Mors, maybe the big Unicron) and then I'll consolidate and ship.

    Darkmount just received their Sheridan stock. I paid the remaining discounted balance on the preorder. In about 5 hours it will be shipped out to the Superbuy warehouse for consolidation where FT Iceman is waiting. I'll ship them together with Magnum when it drops this month.

    Got my Sheridan just yesterday. Haven't transformed him yet, having seen all the breakage reports. I don't know whether I should attempt to do it carefully to avoid breakage or whether I should be deliberately careless, enough so that if it is defective & going to break, it will. My thinking is if I'm too careful and manage the transformation without any problems but then leave it on a shelf for a year or so & it breaks then, it'll be damn near impossible to get the replacement parts FansToys are currently offering. Which is more unethical: FansToys releasing expensive, defective junk, or me trying to protect my purchase? (I think you can tell by my wording which way I'm leaning).

    I would just preemptively contact your retailer and get the replacement screw that they should've received even before it breaks. I did that for TCP which they may even have done automatically for people who bought it from them. It broke fairly soon and I only just had to wait for it to come. My other leg didnt yet so I have the screw tucked away safely for when it does.

    I did that well before the figure was sent, but the arseholes sent the figure anyway (by surface mail, no less), then said they can't do anything for me unless I provide pictures of the figure if/when it breaks. Only then will they contact their supplier and "see what they can do."
