    Well that was fast. Also those smoke effect pieces. Ah, yes, pollution.

    Kingdom Galvatron's sighting in Australia was a week and a half ago. So is it safe to predict his US sightings showing up in CA in another week maybe?

    Target has a July release date for Rodimus and Galvatron while Gamestop has Sept.

    Plus I've never pre-ordered anything from Gamestop other than video games, so I'm not sure this is worth the gamble. Plus Target will credit you if they do screw up your release date.

    Sorry to hear that.
    In the 15 years of collecting I've had a bad experience with every major company that ships Transformers at least once. Target screwed up completely last year with Sunstreaker but ended up giving me a $10 credit that I ended up applying to either my Runamuck or Thrust pre-order (which had problems and got credits to).

    It's crazy how some trolls on this site can accuse you for fraud when it's the company that continues to screw up! It's not like you can force them to credit you for the inconvenience. So when they do screw up it's okay to ask for a credit when they don't offer it themselves. The only company that I won't do pre-orders with anymore is Walmart.

    These days it just seems to be getting tougher and tougher to be a collector. Sometimes you wonder is it worth it with all these issues. All we want is to buy figures and we hope that the major retailers will carry them so we can. It's not rocket science yet some retailers can make a b***s of it.

    That's a wild find, congrats! Interesting packaging on him too. I didn't realize he was rolling coal though.

    The back of alt mode still looks like a trash truck to me. :p

    Yeah, something changed in him a few years ago and I completely dropped off from even remembering he exists.

    Qc issues inevitably get out on the tf Community so you don't need to watch the vids. Someone will say it on somewhere like here.
    @YoungPrime. Where you ever over on the old idw forums

    Yeah, I wouldn't blame you if they're still charging you for the shipping that lost the figure in the first place. That's a rip off!

    This thing looks so cool in-hand imo. Both in these pics and the recent review.

    Sooo any updates on sightings for this guy? I kinda missed out on the BIG-W batch. Maybe a product code would be helpful too.

    Rodimus is my most anticipated figure. He looks great.

    So, Australia... why isn't there a review thread for him yet with 8,343 pictures?

    Because the people obtaining the toy aren't on TFW2005.

    No, the release is set for July or so. Only one or two at most Galvatron were put on the shelf here early by mistake, and are not indicative of an actual release.

    Well, my speculation is based "mistakes" since new waves have always release earlier than its release date in many areas. So if not a week from now then mid June showing more sightings in the US (since Rhinox is here) wouldn't be out of the question.

    If not then I can wait till July.

    Yeah, I guess that makes sense. I've heard that volcanoes are the biggest non-human-made CO2 producers
