    I was going to wait until payday this Friday, but I got an unexpected surprise bonus from my boss this weekend, so I bought mine this morning from BBTS and they've already shipped him out! If they keep up their recent trends, I should have him in-hand by Thursday!

    Take a close look, the two neutral faces are actually slightly different, mostly in the lips. Also, love the metallic blue eyes versus the chrome blue.

    I also have a non-working tfsource tracking number. It "shipped" on Saturday.

    Nothing moves on Sunday. Unless there's no notifications at all including no message that says "Departed from x location", I think it's just because it's travelling and stopped on Sunday.

    Even though it is 8 months away, I went ahead and pre-ordered. Fans Toys track record is gold. They keep improving upon each release. Grinder will be awesome

    Interesting. I was planning on comparing the two neutral faces when I got the chance. I think this is a surprise bonus as I don't recall FT mentioning it before.

    Glad everyone getting him in now is happy thus far. Stomp is truly amazing and I think FT's finest work to date. After the past few Takara releases left a bittersweet taste in my mouth it is truly refreshing to again have what I consider to be a true masterpiece. I agree with Cracka J in that for $200 you sure get a lot of bang for your buck here. It seems expensive, but I would gladly pay a little more for something like this that looks and feels like a real collector's grade transformer, instead of a $160 Shockwave that looks like it belongs on a Walmart shelf for a third of that price, or a $180 Ramjet with widespread QC issues.

    Bravo, FT. Bring on Grinder, Skyfire, and everything else you've got in the oven with the same quality as Stomp, and like him, you'll be unstoppable.

    Same here, I actually had it on BBTS and I canceled last Wednesday thinking that TFSource would ship to me at least on Friday and I got the shipment tracking on Saturday and still is Monday night and the tracking number doesn't work. I would have gotten mine either today or tomorrow from BBTS. Very frustrated with TFSource right now!

    Is Tfsource normally good?
    I'm think of ordering Sphinx unless I can find him from some place better.

    Never had a problem with them, hopefully this is a just a small issue but I would have Stomp right now if I stayed with BBTS. :confused:

    The source is giving me ramjet heartburn. So I'm like claws out already.


    But bababobo has gotten something from China through New York since Friday.... With a 2 day head start tfsource may have gotten it into USPS hands

    Outrages

    Mine is scheduled to arrive BBTS tomorrow. In my experience TFsource usually has reasonable turnaround times when it comes to shipping.

    I know The Chosen Prime still has Sphinx. They are by far better than TFsource. They actually do ship same day unlike TFsource and Brandon the owner will go out of his way to answer any of your questions and concerns.
