    No. Still waiting for an Invoice on the first two.

    Not sure where InDemand Toys are getting theirs, Hasbro UK or via the Hong Kong supply route

    Not necessarily, it partly depends on how much of a priority Takara makes those orders, they might be shipping hasbros order via a slower method because it’s a larger quantity

    Definitely a good point. Hasbro and Takara having the same release date could only happen if they paid to fly stock over the ocean or affordably shipped them long in advanced. And since we didn't see a bunch of leaks weeks/months ago, they probably weren't done until recently.

    Those look gorgeous! And I just saw the info about the date being switched to March. To be honest, I am really fine with that because it gives me a little time to recoup from Christmas and buying Mega Construx Castle Grayskull. I just hope that if they are delayed two months they also push back the other ones as well. I don't know if my wallet can handle four or all six dropping at the same time.

    Gawd I hate the name Turtler. Screw that its Snaptrap. At least the Hasbro names tried to sound cool for their time in 1988. Cant wait to get them all. Since they are going to be ridiculous Takara prices, they should have just dropped them all at once in a box set like the Unite Warrior sets. Not saying the black boxes look horrible, but its definitely forcing me to keep the boxes as exclusives even though they are average looking at best. I kinda like the cardboard selects boxes better because I dont feel sorry about throwing them away in the trash.

    I meant the other sleeve. Now that I look closer at it, it’s a box, and it appears to be a Hasbro box specifying it’s a TT product and says GENERATIONS SELECTS instead of the singular that TT uses.

    That's entirely possible. Combine that with the slow boat shipping and you get a two to three month delay.

    Lets just get this over with. The price sucks & I don't want to pay it. But this is the last combiner I need. It should have been released in Prime Wars instead of all the weird releases like white Optimus Prime, Inferno & the Starscream that everybody hates. Hasbro is so stupid sometimes. I hate paying double for something that should've been released 2 or 3 years ago.

    Meh, I\'ll pass, the joints are probably terrible as a result of shocking mold degradation
