    You're most probably right. I get real confused on the Giga names and swords

    Just to make it extra confusing, Snarl's flame effect does fit on Sludge's sword. But if you look closely, you'll see that the flame is molded to fit the notches at the end of Snarl's sword. Plus that flame effect leaves about a centimeter at the base of Sludge's blade uncovered.

    Small update on the ShowZ website:

    Nice to see a date appear. Sad to expect a price increase for holiday shipping. I'm a patient guy who would wait out a SAL shipping order for 90 days without going insane. Good times....o_O

    That's unfortunate news. Looks like my PO with TFSource might be the one I keep then. With tax it'd be $216 and i'd get it here far faster...

    The real question now is when Superitor is coming out.

    Did you catch an early PO at TF Source? I'm seeing $240 with a January 2022 shipping date (but that likely could still beat ShowZ shipping overseas). I know my MP-52+SW PO went to Toy Dojo because I wanted local shipping around Christmas, but that was just to avoid the "lost in mail" hassle.

    Yeah I got mine in at $199.99.

    NY State tax is 8% so i'd end up paying the same or less depending on what ShowZ's final price is. So there's no point buying it from ShowZ now.

    So is there any way of just waiting it out and then get cheaper shipping? I don't care if Swoop is at my house on christmas or not.

    Probably not. Only thing you could hope for is GP delaying him for some reason and then SZ going to a lower price to reflect lower shipping. Pretty unlikely IMO.

    Mmm I will send them a mail then. 200 bucks is ridiculous.

    If anyone is interested in a figure trade I have the red metallic version (never transformed) that I'd be interested in swapping for either the blue metallic or blue chrome version...
