    When I got the email this morning about a pre-order coming in early, I almost had an anxiety attack because a lot of stuff has decided to come all at once earlier than expected, then I saw it was from Amazon and not pulse or BBTS and knew it was for this.

    I was able to use my gift card balance to get this for free. And this is the only open Amazon order I have, so that solved that problem very quickly.

    I had 6 pre orders all update shipping date and process overnight on Amazon. All Hasbro products. All items that were previously slated for late Sept, Oct, and early Dec.

    Glad Amazon decided to do a random check of my financial security.

    I'm just in a spot right now where I'm getting needlessly anxious about stuff coming in. I know I'll be fine, and I'll absolutely end up having the money for everything, but I just can't help it.

    I was also relieved when I got the emails that SG Megatron and the Gnaws I ordered from Pulse got delayed. Just puts them a little further back so I don't have to worry about them now while I balance out.

    My order dat got moved up to late oct/early November from mid Dec… still no movement on Sideswipe/Skywarp set that’s currently mid October, but lots of other folks are receiving theres….

    weren’t there rumors of a third set? Or is that all moving into the Golden Disk collection that’s unannounced?

    I don't ever remember a concrete rumour on that front. Just wishful thinking, for people speculating how a possible "Earthrise" Hound would be released, and I think also due to the fact that the previous Amazon two-packs also came in a set of three.

    That was just fan speculation about this being a great place to release an Earth mode Hound given the set's theme. It's kind of odd that he's the only Siege figure that had an Earth mode that hasn't recieved one yet.

    Maybe he will be released in legacy with an earth mode or as a generations selects?

    That'd be great but I'm not in hurry. Honestly the old Universe deluxe holds up fine with the rest of the WfC guys.

    That's pretty much every industry right now.

    Outside of the weird tech-y wheels, Siege Hound stands in just fine as an Earth mode anyways. There's nothing really overtly Cybertronian about him aside the rims (and even then, he's got Ironhide and Ratchet to join him on that front).

    I mean... almost all the Siege Ark crew are really more Earth vehicles rather than anything I consider largely Cybertronian. My only issue with using Siege Hound in my display is that he looks like a Hummer rather than a jeep. Also I feel that if an older toy is perfectly fine why replace it? I probably wouldn't buy an Earth mode Hound if they made one.

    Woooooooo!

    Getting this and the Sideswipe/Skywarp set has made me feel so relieved. Was worried after the Amazon ER exclusive debacle that the Amazon roulette would've screwed me.

    I had no idea those two boxes could go together like that. :lol
