    NTWRK's web site is selling it & offers free shipping - its how I got it.

    Quite right I really meant avoiding NTWRK all together. I have one secured via them for a friend and went robot kingdom for myself. My RK order has shipped.

    Are people saying - for the privledge of downloading an app to order the same thing we did via the web site with free shipping, they ended up paying for shipping? I'd be pissed if I did that.

    Thanks for the heads up on the die-cast issues. Makes me wonder if they cheapened out or used remainder stock that had been sitting...

    Leave it awful swirly.

    Start with a buffing pad and compound and see what does for it.

    But how dare you ruin the artistic choice to include imperfection into this piece that symbolizes something about how "that's okay".

    Contacted their customer service to see if it was going to ship soon.

    They replied:

    I wonder whether Hasbro is regretting the decision to collaborate with Balvin now. :rolleyes:

    I just don't get why they've done two of these and they're both soundwaves. With the first one I wondered "why the F did they let them choose that stupid color scheme"? Like all gold? Someone along the way should have said "guys, we get it, you like solid gold stuff but this is a toy, lets be a little more creative" and now they've gone so far in the other direction...? They really should have sat someone with the band in a zoom call with a Habsro paint guy explaining what's good and not, and had them pick a scheme together.

    Why do you say that? Last I heard he embarrased himself saying something about some awards show, and then something about Colombia and another latin rapper (Residente) destroyed him for it. But that was like 2 weeks ago, an eternity in internet time.
