    I’ll just wait for a 3P set with a wired, cloth cape.

    If it never happens? I’ll live, I think.

    Hey, thanks for this, as I was also hoping for an imminent A3U shipping notice, too!

    Maybe I can choose you, Pikachu. Only thing is, there’s always risk involved. But I can try to ask my Japanese teacher if it can be done. I’m thinking Maybe. There’s one person ahead just in case. So you would be the second to help

    Yup.

    Thundercracker all over again, getting it 2 months late.

    I wonder if Nightbird will still be on time at TFSource like Skids was for me despite the seeker delays. o_O

    Ok FUCK, 2022 is officially the worst year right off the bat

    the Hong kong Flight ban was extended to the 18th of February.

    I can't refund RK because I didn't file one in the time allocation for refunds and spare parts and SEA (surface) shipment is the only option but it takes a whopping 4 MONTHS estimate to deliver, I think I just can't afford the damned waiting any more, Imma switch to Surface mail for this because at least I know it's ACTUALLY coming in stead of waiting on the HK government to lift the bans only for COVID to come in and make things x1000 times worse

    That’s rough, sorry to hear that Andy. I was looking forward to your pics too. You’re in good company, my order of SW won’t be available until after March or later.

    Would anyone in Japan be willing to ship out a coronation set to me if I send you the proof of purchase for my seekers (and pay for shipping and everything of course)? I really want that set for screamer. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help out!

    Finally transformed this guy. I was complaining about the purple they used when the first pics came out but in hand it looks fantastic!

    It seems like my Skywarp from RK in Hong Kong managed to catch an outbound flight, and it looks like it made it through Dutch customs without incurring any fees! Post office app says itr might actually be delivered tomorrow. Cannot wait, to be honest, seeing so many photos of him in hand!

    Sigh.... I just received my Skywarp. All good except for the fact that he was missing his left gun. :(

    Some colour comparison shots for you re: purplegate. I honestly think the EOS (maybe not surprisingly!) does the best job at representing the 'real life' colours. The iPhone seems to boost the blue/purple too much? These were taken whilst dark outside with my LED room light on 'daylight' mode (which is quite white).

    I'd agree that's a fair reflection of the colour too, on screen.

    whelp after a bit of hagglin' and days spent waiting for replies,
    I was recommended shipment via Freight Forwarding by a friend and fortunately RK was kind enough to arrange it, altho I had to be partially refunded for the shipping on my preorder, I had to make a new order to the forwarding address because I can't refund from my preorder as it was made over 180 days and have it ship with my skywarp, so I did that and they'll send me the rest of the refund store credit when I do another future order there.

    Which is ngl kind of a pain, but at least I know it's coming for sure

    fingers crossed this works

    Good spot! They’re not missing - I removed them for some reason - I plan to display him in robot mode on a stand with the thrust coming out of his feet.

    Opened my Skywarp today. Quality almost perfect, except... I also got two stoic faces, instead of a smiling face. Oh well, chances of a replacement are pretty slim to none, but it's not a the look I'd choose for him anyway.
