    Given how old the original listing is, I don't suppose we know if they'll put new preorders on Omegalock, or on the TFS-Express UK site?

    Not sure but I imagine they will. TFS Express posted on facebook that some new pre orders would go up soon but guess that's the Chinese site

    They also noted that all the previous orders paid in full would be migrated over to the new listing, and buyers would be asked to pay the updated pricing as well.

    Yeah, Facebook announcements I never see as I never go there. Good to know though.

    I'd argue the sacrifices the alt mode AND the robot legs. I preferred the earlier renders that seemed chunkier around the knees

    That's been up for a bit, but given the price, most seem very hesitant to commit now, especially when many see TFS as the "source" of so many of the recent price increases. Plus, the hope that it might go up cheaper elsewhere is something to hold on to for now.

    Plus, they allowed a ton of our credit card data to be stolen and then tried to deny any and all responsibility. I REALLY want a Chomp but I'm not going to deal with the fallout of all that again.

    I pre-ordered from Terrys TF club last night. What do you guys think the international price will be? Fingers crossed it's a lot less than TFsource.

    Maybe $10 to $20 less. I haven't seen TFSource mark up a new release preorder by more than that. Add in that Terry might be able to sell it for $5 to $10 less, it's potentially 15 to 30 saved even before shipping. Pretty substantial. Surprised Terry got preorders in so quick on it. I would have bought from there had I known. :oops:

    Its an MP figure. Why do the gator legs look like they are made out of lego blocks ? I think they should have reimagined them just a lbit rounder and put gator claws.

    Nice.

    My question exactly.

    Aaand gone.

    I already locked down preorders for 2 (or was it 3) copies of Chomp from Taobao nearly 2 years ago from Taobao. Now the wait till December begins.

    Wasn't there a rumor about Lupus getting reissued whenever Chomp drops?

    And thus not a very good mp?
