    I was inches away from ordering the perfect effect upgrade kit and calling that it for my Bruticus because of how much I like the CW Combaticons' color schemes. I always loved the toys, that's the main area Assaultus kind of let me down on, I was sold on the original pitch of having both a cartoon and a toy version of Onslaught. Luckily, I got him as a gift from a relative and don't have to pay for Incursus, for that price I can't complain too much. A Feral Rex-sized Bruticus would've been perfect for my collection, but I can definitely deal with one that's as big as my UW Devastator. Minor complaints aside, Fraudo and Impetus are miles better than their CW counterparts. Definitely excited to take some pictures of Incursus when he comes in next week.

    Yeah, although I like the CW Swindle, he doesn't have that typical swindle look that MMC's version nails.

    Or the colours. Lazyaza’s colouring (I assume he’s the main colourist), is just so spot on to that classic palette it works so well. They’re truly lovely to look at, even if I didn’t have perfect vision they’re such delicious vivid patterns to witness.

    What are the plastic issues on the previously released Cynicuses? A friend of mine offered to sell me his and I'm curious if I would be better off just waiting for this reissue.

    There were some weak pieces in the limbs...some were easily broken if you weren't careful. Think of GPS brittleness.

    needless to say mine rarely goes to alt mode. Stays in Robot mode 99% of the time.

    glad to help...looks like BBTS and TFsource have preorders up as well now. So if you like a specific retailer more...check them out. But PSX is offering free shipping for POs before July. So....

    Where are the pre-orders for Not-Tessarus? I've got all the DJD on pre-order through BBTS (except The Pet/Nickel, BBTS has those in stock so I'm going to wait until I can ship 'em with one of the DJD before dropping them in the POL) but he's the only one missing from the lineup.

    He hasn't been solicited yet. Just Helex at the moment.

    You are looking at a figure probably a year away or more with Tesarus. Helix is the next DJD member to come out. And the reissues. And Chromedome. Maybe finally Deathasaurus. After all that then maybe...

    Another year? Oh thank GOD. It's already going to be super expensive if Helex comes out this month as I've decided he'll ship with The Pet/Nickel so I can just nab them, with the hope I might can get Vos and Kaon in the POL long enough for Tarn to arrive within that 90 day limit by December and ship them out as a batch.

    I think you’re one of the few people who are glad it’s gonna take another year for Tesaurus.

    Yo, count me in that list too. If he was coming out towards the end of the year, I'd be slammed back-to-back with $100+ orders.

    I'm interested in buying a R-28 Tyrantron and I saw a review that it came with a tarn/kultur head, but I don't see that listed in any product descriptions for the 2019 re-release. Was that an exclusive or only the original release?

    I absolutely love the mmc insecticons and even more than those, their version of Grapple. Really regret not getting their Inferno in time, now I can’t find him anywhere :/
