    Also out for delivery from TCP, pretty hyped. I am in this hobby for the engineering and an all built in combiner tickles that fancy so much. This is probably my most anticipated set yet for that reason.

    I was going to wait until TFcon, but I decided to order impetus today since most retailers are waiting on a Saltus restock that I can get in October instead I got a chance to handle one the other day and was really impressed with the engineering.

    Apparently mine got delivered while I was @work. From BC to Toronto in two days. Kinda weird but not complaining. Toy got first class grade.

    There is a placard floating around from a recent show in China that the next figure from this set (Swindle I believe) will be shipping next month. Does anyone know if this is realistic?

    I hope so, but I also really doubt it.

    I think the reason for the videos is because the figure is shipped in 'bot mode, but the manual starts from alt. mode.

    However, once you've done it once, it's so easy. I have to say, the level of intuitiveness that I've had on my recent figures has been a breath of fresh air. For so long, transformations were becoming more complicated, nail ripping and infuriating, but it seems we've reached the eye of the storm and the fun element has come back. Good times.

    Swindle has been looking pretty close to final so it doesn’t seem impossible

    Granted, Vortex was looking pretty close back at TFcon LA.

    But then, with a combiner you DO need to make sure everything locks properly so they probably needed Onslaught far enough along to check that.

    Glad to hear. I am a sucker for old school box art and manuals.

    Was supposed to get mine today, but it hasn't left BC yet... Hopefully tomorrow, then.

    I was told he was going in to final molding last month so perhaps not an outlandish thing if he's good to go for production to drop in september.

    Which I'll be particularly delighted about since he's the figure of this set I'm most excited for given he hits every note of having every design element I've ever wanted in a perfect mp Swindle.

    Them beautiful fusion aesthetics. I can see all the influence and it’s so cool. It’ll be a great start with two members done by the end of the year.

    Mine did the same it arrived in Mississauga yesterday then got delivered today

    He arrived in alt mode for me. It could be he's shipped differently between NA and Europe/Asia although that would be strange

    Got this guy today and I like him. Transformation was nice and easy. Only thing I'm not crazy about is his head can pop off easily.

    The real wheels being on his shoulders would stand out too much like I think they do on warbos and uts and no wheels at all wouldn't look right either so I think the right call was made to have them be fake smaller details.
