    I've placed it on September 25th, and payed for it right away.
    Are you still waiting for yours to be shipped?
    If so, send them an email asking what happened. Although this wasn't my first purchase there, this was my first pre-order, and I have no idea how they handle those.

    That's where Bb (the first MP specifically)and Skids come in. The very most ordinary looking deep infiltration civilian type transformers (wrong thread right?:lol  )

    Anyone try out the Stand experiment with the MP-11 jets? Does it work?

    I sent them an email last night, They shipped my thundercracker this afternoon but didn’t reply to me email... so I still have no idea what happened there.

    Maybe they just don’t work on a first come, first serve basis, I dunno. I also wonder if they would have shipped mine today if I hadn’t sent an email.

    Toy Dojo’s response time with this is super disappointing. I might go with someone else next time around.

    TMReviews got his Thundercracker review out today so they must at least have them in stock if not sending them out now.

    I got mine in from Dojo on Sunday and it was supposed to be Friday but there was a FedEx delay. I’ve also had it preordered from when it was first listed.

    Sunstorm when?

    I really don't mind having another copy of the mold. Just not as Thundercracker and Skywarp.

    I emailed Toy Dojo earlier today and they replied with a tracking number. Might want to check with them those who await.

    I just rewatched the first G1 episode today where everyone got revived and reformatted, and Teletran really screwed the Autobots by reviving the Decepticons first. Skywarp was in pieces, for Pete’s sake! Is Teletran supposed to be some agnostic entity or something? I’m surprised nobody has done a ‘How it should have ended” where Teletran revives Optimus first and he leaves the Decepticons deactivated on the Ark for good, thus expediting an end to the war.

    back on topic, loving Thundercracker more and more each day. This is my new favorite mold!

    Except I think Skids' Honda City Turbo alt-mode was only sold in Japan/Asia, so...

    Civilian deep infiltration. Beats me why the Marvel comic turned him into a miniVan.o_O 

    In the Marvel comic it was stated the "memories" of the great war was lost by "Aunty" due to 4 million years of stasis lock.

    Probably because they thought he was a minivan. Vehicles in Skids' particular shape simply don't exist in North America.

    Thundercracker is glorious. My copy is much sturdier than Starscream and has no QA issues. Enjoy.

    Bring on Skywarp!

    I only ever seem to engage in the Transformers community when I get the latest masterpiece and review QC issues which is a bit of a shame but anyway.

    Got Thundercracker. Mostly fine. Small chunk of paint fell off the tail fin upon removal from the box. Few paint blemishes, some flashing around joints, paint bobbling on the underside of the wing, a weird sort of paint bubble nipple on the silver chest plate. I did some sanding with 3000 grit paper to remove the worst of the bobbling. Did some paint touch ups my mixing my Citadel paints and... it looks pretty good now.

    Seem to go through this cycle every time a new MP arrives now, its stressful and a bit disappointing but I don't know these things are so amazingly engineered part of me can forgive it. I know many justifiably feel different.
