    Mine arrived even EARLIER than expected! He's great! But I think mine has a QC quibble, the leg wings are super floppy. His neck joint is also a little loose but that might be because its not set in the socket right and just needs some nudging.

    Sounds like the actual explanation is something different, but with the ubiquity of Amazon lockers these days, I simply assumed that's what was going on. There's not a lot of reason I'd be surprised by any location someone might mention these days, now that those are a thing.

    Honestly, I don't think that reputation is deserved in the least.

    UK Retailers have him (and Tarantulus) in stock and mine has already been shipped which means hopefully a Friday arrival.

    Yay scheduling!

    The best part is...Jhiaxus was shipped inside a cardboard box, so his own box is undamaged!

    I'm so excited about this figure, but I'm also concerned about yellowing. Hope it's not the case.

    Have there been any reports of yellowing parts on Jhiaxus? I haven't seen any yet. Fingers crossed!

    Why not go the IDW route and make him orange and gun-metal gray?

    I'm thinking now after an length search starscream the g2 cyberjet repaint black and purple. I dig the paint scheme existing. With the primary orange all I can see is unicron. Like a unicron avatar or something . Cool in itself

    Waiting patiently for 30 years for a proper Jhiaxus, can hold out these last few hours for my Amazon delivery that says “Out for Delivery.”

    Wouldn't mind if they homage Toy Jhiaxus with a new...Beast Machines head...that would be cool.

    The box was warped from water-damage, but I don't keep the boxes anyway. Whether or not it yellows in the future, I'm going to enjoy these crisp colors while I can!

    Pft! Those are mere pretenders (small 'p'), not Jhiaxus! Let's never mention them again!

    Speaking of Pretenders, my money is on Metalhawk being a retool.

    Or maybe they could repaint him from a new Jetstorm.
