    Nope, just pre-orders. Leader class in particular is quite delayed for US release. Also doesn't help that many Walmarts simply don't carry Leader class in their stores.

    If you don't mind paying for very expensive shipping, you could try the Asian market version from a site like Robotkingdom (was out of stock a few days back and then went back in stock). HK Post recently cleared Speedpost to the US.

    What is shipping to the US for those sites usually?

    Depends on method, weight, size of box. You're looking at around $50 for 1 Leader size figure via Speedpost (what HK Post calls EMS) although you would get your package within a week. Tracking is updated frequently. No other (cheaper) airmail option is currently available.

    Surface (i.e. on a boat) would be a bit cheaper (probably less than $15-20) but who knows when the package will arrive (several weeks / few months potentially) and has limited tracking.

    50?! Yikes.

    I mean truthfully ....if this figure isnt due out in the states for a while ....I can personally swing the 50 shipping one time.

    Gotta meditate on this.
    Lol

    DHL shipping from Japan is even higher (that and FedEx are what Japanese sellers are using to get around japan post restrictions) although you'll get your package in about 3 days.

    So yeah, I bought it. :D 

    Sure it's a 100% markup w/shipping, but I look at it as "I bought two, one to display". lol

    Perfect, this will give me the perfect thing to occupy my time in the upcoming weeks. ....should have it by early next week.

    Thanks for the heads up and advice!

    All the leader class figures I have for studio series have come from the mystical land of Walmart. I’ve seen the figure once, bought it, and never saw it again. I hope my luck comes through.

    I'm so used to seeing this mold in red that the yellow looks weird to me. It might also be how intense it is, since I always thought of Rampage as being the more washed-out yellow member.

    Still, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this. Maybe even a Payload to make Devastator's limbs a uniform color?

    Same here, the yellow is way too saturated for my tastes. Was hoping for that washed-out look the original had.

    Frickin Canada Post, man. I paid a large premium for fast shipping on Overload so that it’d arrive quickly and thanks to CP it’s stuck in shipping limbo for the foreseeable future. Guess I’m not gonna be completing Devastator for a while.

    He hasn't, but the prospect of a Devastator with all yellow limbs amuses me. And I also like Long Haul's mold, so I would be down for a yellow repaint.
