    During COVID, they aren't actually requiring signatures. The driver just has to confirm that an adult is there to receive the package. So just answering the door and being like "Got it, thanks!" is all the confirmation they need.

    Do the instructions specify whether the rings are supposed to go clockwise or counterclockwise (by spike direction)? It seems like every person on the planet that has it already puts them clockwise, but all of the promotional images have it counter clockwise. I have circled a few points below in red (sorry it's hard to see) where you can see that putting it clockwise exposes some joints for the transformation that seem like we'd want them hidden on the backside.

    EDIT: I've also circled in green some spots where the tips of the spikes look more hollow on one side. I think everyone is putting their rings backwards...

    EDIT AGAIN: I have found a video that shows pictures of the instruction book and it does show the rings going clockwise. I am convinced that the instructions are wrong and counter clockwise is the intended way. I have attached an engineering render below that shows them going counter clockwise, what I believe to be the correct way.

    I looked up the address of where these Unicrons are at and it's a little over an hour drive from me. Guess all the Unicrons passed by me on their way to Chino. Can't wait for it to ship. No notice yet though.

    says right there on the FedEx advanced tracking that they are not actually shipping until 03-10-21... So, "checking every hour" is pointless. Even then, this is only an estimate.

    Just wait for the actual shipping notice :)

    I'm curious. I paid extra for the "expedited shipping" from Habro. Mine is still showing coming on the 16th, sort of the same as everyone else. So did Hasbro just send it regular and keep the money?

    I haven't gotten a notice. So, you're doing better than me.

    Same here. Will see once it actually ships. If it is standard shipping, I'm getting a refund from hasblow for the shipping.

    not if you paid extra for fedex home delivery shipping with insurance making it 2-5 days instead of 1-8 days. besides Ive seen fedex take care of packages and place them down, I've seen USPS throw packages and I dont want Unicron thrown

    That's fair. I guess I just couldn't justify paying that much extra in shipping when they gave me a free option, especially after that $200 markup (besides, my local postman is pretty good at not tossing stuff). Also looking forward to spending the store points he's gonna earn me on a voyager class figure, gotta squeeze every last cent out of that markup lol

    I might save mine and just put it towards kingdom Galvatron. It wouldn't cover all of him, but it will probably make the most sense thematically
