If anyone cares the SIOC is E8546S000
Gosh, that thing's ugly as sin. *sigh*
The official or the KO it's based on?
Yes. And I love it.
Same. Hope it gets here soon.
Thank you. In case this large shipping charge happens to anyone else, I contacted their customer support a couple of times and after a few days they refunded the shipping difference so it came back down to $4. Again, thanks all for your help.
Can't confirm til it's in hand, BUT it doesn't have the weakness sticker the original Strips has - making him different enough to be worthwhile.
I just ordered one - they gave me free standard shipping? Was that not what everyone else was getting? I did not download an app - just walked in on their web site & purchased with a credit card as there was no other option for payment. Crazy no Paypal option or I'd have grabbed more for friends. Sorta reserving credit line for the drop of the Haslab.
Did anyone in the UK manage to order one of these ?
I get why they'd not want to make him to much lighter in case he got mistake for Steeljaw, but it would certainly be nice to have that distinction of colours even if it's something subtle like the difference between the shades of blue used on a Studio Series 86 Scourge and a a Studio Series Sweep (only with Orange).
This might be related to the Linkin Park release where its another artist collab of the same piece with their own spin, so each artist can advertise & collect each other's work. On a side note - the Linkpark Soundwave is the first & only real Golden Lagoon Soundwave true to the episode.

Wonder if its worth trying to reach out to the artist in regards to the authentic weapons in this case - where they would be more true to the cartoon we all mostly enjoyed as kids & be more true to his fandom love. Especially where they would fit in the battery compartment & enhance this creation. They could also potentially further release them with say more redeco of the cassettes Rumble & Frenzy / Laserbeak / Ratbat.
Where these lack a faction affiliation - i would assume we classify them equally to the originals - unless the artist states otherwise?
Hey folks check out the unboxing below:
Great video - sort of settles a major question for me - swap out the Jetfire guns (ridiculous) for the darker Soundblaster ones - the coloring fits in a wacky kinda way.
Wait, what is Bump of Chicken Bumblebee?
A light blue repaint of TR Bumblebee in collaboration with the Japanese band Bump of Chicken.
He doesn’t come with the “battery” weapons? I didn’t notice that before.
Any chance of a picture showing the copyright stamp inside the battery cover?
As I said, they're not my photos - they're from Twitter user Ishikawa_sunday. You might ask them if they could take a photo of that for you.
This has been available in stock via robot kingdom for about a week now. So the app was not the only way to get it.
