    Heard back from Mega just now.

    Was told my order is set to ship out on Tuessay.

    I replied asking for clarification on if that meant NEXT Tue (since today is already Wed) and why it said LAST Fri on their website.

    Waiting to hear back.

    This was their response to me:


    Hi Alex,

    We put on our website that they'd begin shipping out Friday. We do not guarantee your order will go out the day we receive items. Your order will ship out Tuesday at the latest. Again, I'm very sorry for the delay.
    Please let me know if you have further questions.
    Thank you,

    This was my response to that mail after seeing they told someone else Tuesday.

    “So what your saying is, is that everyone on the worlds largest transformer forum who ordered from you, all happen to not have been shipped? Or is it more probable that you did not get the items when you anticipated and rather than answer anyone honestly you keep saying a new date?”

    Nice! But most of us dont have that luxury.

    Also, re: your previous post, it doesn't matter if you are amazon or mom and pop, bbts or megalopolis, or walmart or an ebay seller, poor communication is poor business practice no matter who you are.

    Got a UPS tracking number for my order from Megalopolis 17 minutes ago. Doesn't mean they've actually shipped yet, but it's progress

    I expected something like to happen when I name dropped the forums and told them correspondence was being shared. Now let's see when your order actually moves out to UPS

    So, bare with me.

    I finally saw wave 1 of ER at the store. (Thanks, WuFlu) I saw Ironworks and went "Eh. He's alright." I got him home and he's kinda fun. I figured having more of these guys to make a little town would be awesome. I thought "Didn't Hasbro just do that blue and white one? And it was retail price too. Let me just get that."

    Thirty minutes later, it's not that I can't find one for $20. It isn't that I can't find it for $50. I can't find one! I cannot believe how this thing sold out like it did. Centurion with bonus pack? Still in stock. Exhaust? Oh yeah. The no-name Micromaster base from the 90's that no real fan would admit to remembering off the top of their head? (Yes, I'm being facetious) Poof. Gone. There is one on ebay for $110 last I looked.

    Uh... What happened?

    Interesting, but my modification on this would be that they didn't give them sentience, but both sides worked out how to create different variations of the centurion drone that could weaponize and then mass produced them. So for me, all of the weaponizer and modulator characters in this trilogy are both drones and valid army builders. (I particularly like brunt and sixgun for army building, and am considering buying two more Ironwork's, one of which to use the toyhax "wrought" conversion kit on.)

    Nope. Hasbro announced / put up preorders for Centurion, Tigertrack, Rotorstorm. We had leaks of Greasepit and Exhaust, and some popped up on Ebay and some online stores in small quantities, but they haven't been officially announced / revealed yet.

    Eh for me i like them being thinking characters because it gives me more of an attachment to them and gives them some individuality from their titans. Also we know Zetar is for sure a sentient transformer from the his brief appearance in the idw comics along with his fellow Powerdashers.

    I admit, the powerdashers are an exception. I forget about them because I didn't pick any of them up.

    My feeling came when I opened up Brunt for the first time and went "damn, this would make for a hell of a decepticon generic!" Because the robot mode was based on the centurion, I decided it was canonically justifiable to lean into this.

    Plus, none of the weaponizer toys helped make their associated Titans feel "more complete" for me. They all already came with small robot partners anyway, so I don't use the weaponizers in conjunction with them.

    I thought of having brunt be a generic in my collection to get more decepticons aswell but looking through his fictional appearances i just couldn't find any evidence that he was ever mass produced. Also i kind of like the idea of him and Zetar being unique centurion drones and also if i do get more centurion drones I'll just say megatron used the robosmasher on them so I have my army-builders right there.
