    Turned out you were right, FedEx just called me and confirmed that I don't have to pay customs. I admit that in the last weeks I was a bit worried for all the chaos after Brexit but in the end going with Kapow was the right choice.

    i wouldn’t mind if Hasbro did another one at the scale that had full planet mode. There’s no way I can get haslab one on the second hand market at this point.

    Check the little blurb under my user name name ;) .

    Seriously, glad to hear it's all good and you aren't being stung by (further) cost increases purely because of living somewhere not called USA.

    For those still waiting for Unicron in the USA, I spoke with Kevin at Hasbro Pulse and he informed me that several containers/trailers of packages are all ready to be picked up by FedEx at the distribution center in Chino, California. The implication was that these were ready to go last week.

    Does that mean they will include a free pair of chinos for the trouble?

    I was worried when I seen folks not getting tracking orders or getting them after the items arrived. Tuesday I got an email saying it was sent and it arrived today at noon. The agent already had the we missed you sticker in his hand and I am sure he was glad he didn't have to lug this back to the truck. So far no damage that I can see (haven't transformed him yet but the plant mode is great but I wished they would have put the battle damaged face, shuttle and chin in separate bags. First thing I did was grab some sandwich baggies and put each one in its own bag.

    It would be nice if they came out with a larger Unicron head that could be hung from the ceiling (give it the option to have metroplex/trypticon eyes and maybe the revenge ship to go with the shuttle.

    Best news I’ve heard all week. This means that the last of us without Unicron (including BBTS and TFsource buyers) probably don’t have much longer to wait.

    My guess is the delay was caused by that nasty port traffic jam near Los Angeles that’s been mucking up shipments for a while. The boat probably got here on time but didn’t have a chance to unload until recently.

    I think it may have had to do with deciding to send to secondary retailers first.

    Completely agree. Canadians shouldn't even be allowed to own transformers. They're vile people.

    Im guessing Pulse is still in disarray because of trying to ship out Unicron. I ordered wave 2 deluxes last friday minus Arcee and they had still not shipped as of today. I called on lunch break only to be told they they are on backorder? They were IN Stock when I bought them. Well apparently just because they showed that, didn't mean they actually had them. The warehouse supposedly told them they didn't have ALL the stock yet. So now, they took my cash, I have to wait another 2 weeks. No communication from them at all. I had to call them.

    Won't be because of Unicron, Unicron didn't ship from either of their warehouses.

    Yeah true, I guess they are just unorganized then. Maybe I will stop ordering from them again. because this situation is really irritating. I would have been OK if they just fessed up and told me about the backorder, but the fact that I had to call. Not cool. Especially since I chatted online wednesday and that rep didn't say anything about it.

    I am a little tired of the "sorry for the delay", "thanks for the patience".

    Is anyone else's order no longer in their history?

    Edit: on top of delays and the rest, their site is having issues. So, enjoy that.

    I keep getting told FedEx is the problem.
