    Amazon has mpm 5 barricade on sale for $48 for those who still haven’t picked him up. I just ordered one to open up since the one I have is MISB.

    My goal atm is to get them to ship the thing I ordered because as much as i was awaiting the 2, i can't just give up on getting both for that price. seems like absolute BS to not have them ship mine yet all you guys got your orders (happy for you guys tho)

    I have never even heard of Loader before. I can see most of these being made except Loader and Junkheap.
    Sideswipe started off 2019 with two great toys. This is amazing. I wanna see more pics of Sideswipe with Jazz and Ironhide if that's possible for those who have him. :D

    Yeah I don't see loader Happening for a few Reasons.

    there's not even any concept art so there's nothing to base a toy on I mean technically you could use this figure as a base idea for loader.

    Because aside from that this is the only image of loader.

    Not only was he on screen for mabey 30 seconds but

    Loader was featured on Attingers deck of dead Transformer cards.

    Man it’s disappointing that although almost all of SS has been inpresssive, shatter and dropkick do not look good. Now I don’t have shatter in hand yet as nobody really does but it just does not look like her, it is better than dropkick since that is pretty inaccurate but still just doesn’t capture the character. Really hoping that 3rd party can do them justice, even if it takes a couple years.

    Yeah as painful as it is, I wouldn't give up either. Consider that you're just fighting to get that good of a deal! :)  Perhaps GameStop just couldn't find those figures in your state? That's what happened to me, as it took like a week for my Brawl to process (a reminder that I put my order in before I joined the boards, and didn't receive it until this week), and that was just 1 figure! Maybe with more than one in the cart, it complicated the order? I'd say hold on, hopefully it'll finish processing soon, fingers crossed for you man...

    Yeah looking at the review and the pictures again, I think I'm just gonna skip out on the two cons for now and give it a couple more years for them to get better figures. I'm instead probably gonna use my intended budget for them on jetfire, as I've been hearing great things about that figure! We'll see though...

    Just checked, I ordered him on Jan 2nd, didn't finish processing until like the 6th. So it wasn't actually a week, but it sure as hell was the longest 4 days of the year so far haha. Was worth the wait though, because Brawl is awesome :cool: 

    Also remember you ordered 2 figures, so for all we know they could be shipping one of the figures to a location where the other is in order to bundle them together and then ship it out to you. That's the only thing I can think of for the processing to take that long. Seeing that it's been basically a week for you, I'd call them to ask...

    Hey Fellas :) 

    I have a request for all those of you who already own SS Barricade.

    Would one of you be so kind to rip Barricade's leg off and take a photo of the ball joint like I did here with Jazz?

    It would help me a lot on my decision to buy this figure or not!

    Alright, just came home from Bumblebee, and all I can say is, wow.

    That was really, really good!
    Sure the middle part is lacking in action but the action scenes in the beginning and end were really great.
    I also liked the moments between Charlie and Bee.
    Now I can't wait for SS Shatter to be released so I can pose her next to Dropkick.

    While it still certainly was worth the wait, I came out somewhat unsatisfied, it’s like I still wanted more.

    I know this going to be controversial: I had the same feeling when I came out of The Last Knight. While I also liked it (despite what people say about it, it didn’t make me content, unlike what I felt when I watched TF1 to AOE. Again I’m not saying I didn’t like Bumblebee, but there was certainly something that was missing for me.
