    I have a feeling that we'll most likely see this likely late next year. We already have a pretty sizeable list already.

    Total speculation below.

    Q1: Trailbreaker, Hoist, Blitzwing

    Q2: Jazz, Mirage, Dead End

    Q3: Cliffjumper

    Q4: Slingshot/Fireflight (whoever is next)

    Goddam. That should be clearer. No one's fault here. I hope I have the option to change again when the full payment is due because I don't want to pay for express shipping.

    Oddly, I really like the chibi alt mode. I’m glad I procrastinated getting MMCs Cliffy.

    Well, this is going to be a feeding frenzy. Still keeping my PO for X-Trans version, that one was meant to go with MP-21 Bumble Bee anyways. I would like to see some comparison shots with MP-45, vehicle mode especially to make sure the chibi style matches.

    I don't buy FT products anymore because I never owned one that didn't need to be fixed out of the box and I also think it's way too difficult to buy them these days. But kudos to them on this design. It looks really great in both modes. I'm anxious to see the transformation.

    Soundwave and Huffer ARE coming this year. September and November, respectively, IIRC.

    A lot of my official products needed fixing too. Except there wasn’t a presence on the boards I could ping, or a email I could get for replacement parts.

    Didn’t like a metric ton of peoples Screamer come broken out of the box too? I guess instead of replacement parts; all of theirs is going to need to be exchanged … or they’ll have to live with it. Some crappy choices right there.

    I have had 3P issues before, but the difference in dealing with issues is night and day.

    Sorry to hear about your FT problems tho.

    I'm right there with you. On my preorders I just checked Express since it was free but then thought, well there's nothing to ship but when there is I hope I dont get stuck with that option if they assess a price to it. The WhatsApp group discount needs to be factored in on some so changes need to be made for final payment anyway.

    You can't go by that. Go back to Parkour's page and look on the left side of the page right under the picture of parkour. It says -

    Material: Die-cast & Plastics (ABS/POM/PVC etc.) Item Type: Transformer Toys Scale: Masterpiece Reference: Cliffjumper Estimated Arrival: Unknown Full Price: Unknown Preorder Full Price: Unknown Estimated Shipping Fee: Unknown

    That "unknown" has meant there will almost certainly be shipping. You can't go by what the order page tells you because it always says free shipping. Based on what we paid for the Insecticons to be shipped from them and considering the probable size of Parkour's box, I imagine his shipping with be in the $8-12 range. Speaking of the Insecticons, when I originally POd them it also said free shipping on checkout like that and I ended up spending $40 on shipping for all three. Apache was the same way. When i originally POd I believe they were still Heat Toy and when I ordered that definitely had zero mention of shipping fees and we all got socked at the end with a surprise $25 dollar shipping fee. They used to have free shipping on a lot of figures but that sadly doesn't seem to be a thing at the moment.

    All i'm saying is don't assume it'll be free shipping because there's a 99% chance it won't be.
