    I didn’t get an email from Mattel creations but I did get one from FedEx saying something was coming tomorrow. I checked my order history and both are now fulfilled.

    This seems wildy overpriced. This must be for people who don't open their toys, as the packaging looks great. I think if I wanted a Prime the size of a Hot wheels I'd buy a vastly superior 3P legends.

    25-35$ seems a lot more reasonable for this. A little sad as it does look fun, and if it were affordable I could see it making a sharp little desk bot.

    I guess they are shipping these out in stages instead of the blitz method. Patiently waiting for my ship email while tapping my finger on my desk.

    The FedEx email had them coming from PA. Both the HW prime and Extendor have been fulfilled. Not sure if both are coming at the same time.

    Also had a FedEx label created yesterday, not sure on any movement yet though. Hot Wheels, indeed! Very quick turnaround

    I am hoping Mattel has the full production run in-hand (and not just a partial) and is just working their way down the list.

    I will just continue to expect them to will ship to me around June 28 as initially expected, so I won’t be sad, lol. :p :confused:

    Spectraflame is Mattels tradename for candy paint. Hot Wheels were painted in it from 68-72. Enamal paint was used from 73 onward.

    Mattel has been jacking up prices for about 5 years now. It seems like a personal challenge to see how much we will spend.

    Tracking number started working. No date given, but it's coming from Jonestown so it shouldn't take long at all!

    Well the Canadian Prices are around 200-320.

    At least this guy has 3 to sell :) 

    Still sucks he only bought them to scalp, doesn't even keep one for himself. :/ Screenshot_20240524_191655_Samsung Internet.png

    Wow, I was not expecting Optimus Prime to ship this quickly at all, but what a pleasant surprise. Due early next week, super stoked!

    Well, I didn't get an email or any notification but when I checked the tracking info earlier it showed that it was going to arrive tomorrow! Didn't expect it so quickly. Thought it wasn't shipping til the end of June? Not complaining, bring it on!!
