    Yeah, no hint of mine shipping yet and it’s end of the day Friday 5/31 now. ~June 28 it is then… hopefully, lol. :p :confused: 

    I got mine in at the 20 minute mark before sold out (in Oregon).

    I think they ship from either California or Pennsylvania?

    I am starting to think it is USA first and other countries later when they feel like getting to it maybe. LOL

    Mine finally arrived after FedEx took it on a road trip to faraway lands.

    I really like him. The packaging, the paint job, and the size are all really appealing. Definitely one of the better specialty items we’ve gotten in the last few years.

    Mattels shipping is a dumpster fire. There is no rhyme or reason. I was on the page when it went live. Took less than 3 minutes. Got shipping email on Friday, then it sat until this Thursday. He was delivered today, Saturday. I'm in central Indiana.

    Everything that is 'chrome'. The central frame that everything attaches to and of course the head.

    As promised here are a few pics of random HW trucks with Prime. The beetle is the same casting that Bumblebee is coming as.

    At the price paid I was hoping for better fit and finish. Probably display in robot mode. That being said, the paint looks better than most Rlc. Transforming was a breeze. All the wheels roll, but not very far. The wheels are specific to this model and I really hope they use them on other models. All in all about 7/10. All complaints are how the cab lines up. 17172518997451909868841989158149.jpg

    That's pretty bad fitment. Mine's somewhat better, so I don't think the whole run is like that.

    The wheels also seem to roll fairly well. I don't think he'd break any records on the downhill track, but then I wouldn't try to run him on it anyway.*

    *Also I don't have a downhill track, so there's that.

    Yours looks like what I was hoping for. Mattel can be a little hit or miss, quality wise.

    What was Mattel customer service team's response to your enquiry?

    Never sent them any, as the delivery date is "June 28th" so I don't have the right to complain to them, I just complain in general like almost every human being. LOL

    I posted these in another thread, but anyway here's a quick comparison. So far I really like him, I just wish the price and fit were a bit better obvy.
