    What’s the workaround to get a shoulder cannon / missle launcher on this new Mirage? Is there an upgrade kit for this?

    No problem. I was hoping it'd be doable with an exta sideswipe or cliffjumper gun mounted in the back port, but that port is bigger than a 5mm weapon handle. Just got my jrc set in today and it's a nice and sturdy upgrade, doesn't even need to be removed for transformation

    Got the same notification. Plus Waspinator and Shadow Panther have pics now, so cool.

    Edit: Just got notified my Sideswipe set shipped. What's funny is that I ordered 2 sets, one on June 1st that showed preparing to ship then returned to not yet shipped and a second order I did just in case on Monday. Guess which one shipped.

    Spoiler: There's a spare set that apparently will be available for purchase on Nov 1. ;)

    God dammit.
    Amazon pulled the payment for the set and now my account is overdrawn. By only 2 dollars, but still.

    I was really hoping this set would've stayed in November.
    Pray they don't move up the release of the JP set.

    Yeah, the recent sets moving up are hurting me. Tricranius, Sideswipe & Skywarp, and now Grimlock & Mirage all hitting at basically the same time is a pretty penny. It's nice to get them early, but knowing that money will be spent when you planned for it to be spent and not a month or two earlier is a lot nicer.

    Would be nice to have the option of putting money down at the time of ordering and getting a refund if it can't be fulfilled.

    Sweet the "change payment method" and "change shipped speed" tabs on my order disappeared, which means Amazon is starting to prepare the shipment.

    Glad Amazon sent that heads up. Forgot I ordered one from there and already got my Pulse order for this set. Cancelled as fast as I could, last thing I need is two of this set (buddy is already taking the Grimlock from the first one).

    Yeah, mine's far along already too. The Skywarp set hasn't moved, and I can't afford both right now (really wish they'd stuck with the release date, since I wasn't prepared to get them so early), so I ended up canceling that set since this one is more to my liking with Mirage not being mostly clear plastic and I like BW Grimlock.

    Got my update from Amazon.com that mine is preparing for shipment as well. So it's reassuring that I've got a set secured, no thanks to Amazon.ca and whatever cuckoo house they're running at the moment.

    I like Grimlock, I do. But I see burnt orange corduroy pants with patches, and a nice comfy wool button down with the sleeves rolled up to the bicep.
