    I was on vacation when NTWRK dropped and couldn't get to it in time. I'm jelly (as the kids would say....wait...do they even say that anymore?)! Let us know what you think when you get it. Hopefully Pulse will be an easy enough experience to grab it. It's gotta be better than anything I've experienced with the DX line in Macross!

    Now this is great customer service The NTWRK. They are open about what is going on, giving credits to help out and even options to cancel and get a refund (which I won't, lol).

    Hello Nathan,

    Thank you for following up with us and we sincerely appreciate your understanding.


    We feel that it is necessary to inform you that there has been a large miscommunication with our warehouse and Hasbro's manufacturing team from the last email that we sent to you. The MP-10G OPTIMUS PRIME ECTO-35 is set to arrive at our warehouse by July 13th, 2019. As a result, your item will begin shipping on July 15th - July 20th. We would like to extend our sincerest apology for the inconvenience this may have caused and would like to offer you the best possible option to rectify this occurrence.


    At this time, we have offered to allocate credits to your account and we intend to keep our word. We understand that this is a frustrating situation and we do not want to create a negative experience with our platform. As a result, we are prepared to cancel your order if you choose to do so. Please let us know if you would like to cancel or proceed with your order.

    Thank you and please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Is that the only place that sold them early? I'm just curious how all those U.S. based ebay sellers got theirs so soon.
    I thought it wasnt available to anyone until SDCC.

    As far as I know The NTWRK was only early distributor of the MP-10G in the US. Now reviewers might have got theirs straight from Hasbro, but not sure how the eBay sellers got theirs.

    What are these credits? I'm wondering if I should email them about it as well.

    It's $20 worth of NTWRK credits to use on any future NTWRK purchases.

    The credits are a nice gesture, for sure, but looking at the upcoming stuff that's going to be available in the near future, I doubt I'll ever use them.

    I agree, I probably won't use them either, but nice of them to do it. Now the waiting for it to ship.

    Yeah, when they sent out their next spam mail, I shot back "YAWN. Contact me when you re-stock Ghostbusters Optimus and have enough stock to last more than ten seconds." Heard nothing from them since...

    It's Not Complicated: Make things I want to buy available and I will buy them; until then, product talks and BS walks.

    $250? A bit better, but still in "Um, no" territory here. Thanks for the headsup, though!

    Hm...might have to go for that, as painful as it would be to pay that price. Don't wanna not get this though.

    You know this looks cool and all but i dont understand the cross-over between Ghostbuster and Transformers? I mean there's no history there and I don't think its been done before? If Hasbro was smart, they should've have went with a GI Joe cross-over and made Prime a Military convoy truck and Megatron a Cobra Hiss Tank and each come with a GI Joe figure. Duke or Snake Eyes with Prime and Cobra Commander or Destro with Megatron. At least this cross-over has been done before in comics and the reception was pretty well.

    Have you seen the recently released batman vs. Ninja turtles yet?

    Doesn't make sense to put these 2 franchises together either, except by who owns the rights to do so.

    Darn glad they did it, as it is the coolest cartoon I have watched in a long time... definitely a must watch.

    Pretty sure this ghostbusters prime will be just as cool. :thumb

    It's like...I understand not liking something. Or feeling like resources could be better spent here or there. But there is a wide enough audience that like both these franchises (they were going strong at just about the same time) that I like it. I even like that they wrote a comic about it (which I honestly didn't think was terrible). Anyway, I know some folks were hoping for something different and I hope whatever it is comes along soon!

    You know, I was gonna pass on this one. I really was. Don't get me wrong, I thought it looked good, but just wasn't my bag. No doubt in my mind that this would be an easy pass. But I got my Ectotron yesterday, and I keep seeing this Ghostbust'n Prime on the front page banner and dammit.... I'm really starting to want one! Really starting to hope the price comes down a bit and I can find one without too much fuss...
