    Honestly, I'm sure they want to take your money as soon as possible.

    If there is a delay, it's not because they decided to hold onto the toys for another month, it's because some piece didn't show up, or because they are waiting for something.

    I know you're right. I guess I just don't like knowing that almost none of the news we all hang on in this forum is in any way reliable. Clearly it doesn't bother me enough to stop, tho.... :dunce

    I'm okay with a little delay... April is quickly becoming a month packed with expensive releases, so a few extra weeks to put another $300. together is welcome in my book.

    I don't think these were ever slated for April, I have heard May from the point of Annoucement. April might have just been a rumor possibly?

    You could be right. I've only seen the April date on retail sites. Perhaps they had some reason to report an earlier date. They could have been misinformed or it's an attempt to encourage pre-orders by making the release look imminent.

    At first I wasn't that crazy about these, but I think I'm starting to dig these Raptor Seekers.

    I'm still not fond of those arms, but I'm liking it a little better, seeing the finished product. If they have the balls to do Action Master Thundercracker, I'll get one.

    Yes, I like how these are scaling with Swipe.

    Hopefully the "friends" I've purchased for them will match....

    All 6 of them?

    If so then May will be a VERY expensive month.

    I'm crazy excited for these. If they're as good in-hand as they look, I'll probably let my iGear MP coneheads go.

    Looking pretty good to me! He certainly has a good size about him. I don't mind the skinny arms too much since Screamer isn't really known for his physical prowess; he's a spindly little coward and it shows.

    Do the wings not split open anymore? The last few pictures have all shown them closed.

    I believe the Conehead Set is due in June, so you will be able to allocate funds over 2 months for these gems!

    I cant imagine wanting to do that. Is it a funds or space issue? I wouldnt personally want to drop MP scaled seekers just to get voyager ones.

    Funds and space are nice, but not a huge concern. I need another Detolf anyway, and I have the money.

    I just don't particularly like the scale of the MP Seekers, and I don't care enough about the Coneheads to have more than one great interpretation of the characters. The MP Seekers are too big compared to MP10, where they looked fine scaled against MP01.

    And most of my collection is in the Classics style and sizes - Deluxes and Voyagers. I've got Orion and Hegemon, and the iGear Raptors are a perfect fit for the size I want with an updated look.

    I suppose it's just that I'm not in love with my iGear Coneheads, and if I find a replacement that fits in with one of the size classes of my collection, I'll happily sell off Attack and Jet.
