    Originally posted at Seibertron.com

    Both Henkei exclusives, Thrust and Dirge, have been delayed. ToyHobby & Ganbo Store notified people via email that their stores' exclusive figures are going to be released in April.

    ToyHobby gave a little more detail and explained that they are hoping to ship Dirge by the beginning of April. No further information from Ganbo, but they probably are shooting for the same for Thrust. The reason for the delay was not given, but production, packaging, and shipping can sometimes be a factor.

    ...Or perhaps resources are being directed towards movie toys.

    So... is this being delayed so the price can be reduced? Or am I just destined never to have a Henkei or Classics Thrust and Dirge?

    More pointedly: Takara handle production for Hasbro's Transformers as well.
    So, odds are they're prioritizing movie toys above everything else. As such, don't be surprised if these (limited/small production run) items are delayed again.

    Seconded. What's another week or two after waiting this long. No problem on my end at all.

    Good, I could use a short break. I'm been terrified all my late pre orders would come in at once. If they came in when their supposed to this wouldn't be a problem.

    Hmm...a little annoying, but if it's only a few weeks than I'm not too worried about it. I was hoping they'd come together with MP Grimlock (I preordered them at the same time) but oh well. As long as I get them, I'll be happy.

    Nope. The factories in China are sub-contractors hired to produce a certain toy line.

    I wouldn't mind the delay so much if MP Grimlock wasn't bundled with the same order :(
