    Except for all the stuff released a few years ago.

    fwiw, if we compare the first pair H29/H30 against Magic Square's first pair, Newage's is selling better at the larger retailers both in overall quantity and in ratio of sold units to units remaining in inventories. I don't typically track legends figures, so I can't speak to how well the Constructicons are selling compared to previous NA or Magic Square releases, but they both seem to be selling fairly well as far as 3P products go, even though they aren't sold out instantly like a typical Fans Toys release.

    Depends on who you collect. NA is good at reissues but others aren’t.

    I guess it is interesting that they haven’t opened up repaint preorders for Devy or Prime, whereas almost every other NA release has usually shown what was going to be available, usually for the EX and Shattered glass. So it really does feel like they don’t want you to pick and choose, they need you to get at minimum the first release, probably to make sure tooling costs can be recouped, if preorders weren’t as high in volume as expected.

    Ironically, while I initially thought I’d be all MS on Devy at first, I’ve much more enjoyed the NA guys, and just jazzed to have them all so fast. I do hope people on the fence will hop in. But maybe after Prime gets his run NA can bank some easy goals by dropping the missing auto bot carbots. There’s bank to be made on Sideswipe, Hound, Mirage and Sunstreaker.

    The NA Bee/Cliff set shipped in March; first official repaint pics were in May.

    In fact, there were a lot of NA releases/reveals between the Bee/Cliff set shipping and the reveal of the Bugbite/Hubcap set (three Shockwaves and three Seekers).

    So yes, there is definitely a recent precedent for NewAge delaying on repaint reveals.

    One other possible reason for not showing the repaints is that this is six bots instead of the usual one. Seven if you include Devastator.

    Two sets ordered and I'd likely double-dip on the toy repaint, too. #I'mDoingMyPart!

    This was a replacement Set A that ShowZ sent out two weeks ago after declaring the initial July 9th shipment lost. A long time coming but these guys are great

    …and another quick phone photo because I had an animation logo sticker sheet lying around. I wish it were a brighter purple but still looks okay. My Set C should be here tomorrow! Can’t wait to shoot this guy proper.

    (For the ice hockey fans..). He shoots…. Saaaved by Long Haul, who directs the puck away from the net, and then plugs Gretzky between the eyes…

    Got my final sets today.
    - Long Haul and Hook are smaller than the others, while I think they should be a little bigger.
    - Long Haul is very nice and much better than I expected, very articulated and fun to mess with.
    - Hook is below average. It looks good but no head articulation because the shoulders block it, and no waist rotation. That means it can only look forward!

    - The Devy is solid and looks well balance in hand, not as skinny as in photos. It also has a good articulation. The head and hands are beautiful, but no screaming face.

    Now, the problem is I also like them in constructicons but have no more money for another set. My Bonecrusher's feet already have some stress marks, so it's a bit scary to transform it back and forth.

    Honestly for what masterpieces cost this is not a bad deal compared to what you’re getting here. I got mine for 250 shipped from Terry’s.

    @lilcarus @edgecrusher

    Thanks for the suggestions guys! I think I'll try 1 and see where that goes. If that doesn't go well, then I'll cross my fingers that a loose Bonecrusher becomes available in the near future for a reasonable price. Unfortunately can't justify spending another 80-100 just for a foot :p  It stays in place in vehicle mode so I might just display the group permanently in combined mode.

    Just ordered from Terry for the 1st time on this set. Seemed to be quite a good deal compared to everyone else.

    Ok so - are the leg fillers being shipped with sets now that the entire set is released, or do they need to be explicitly requested? Or is it on a vendor by vendor basis?
