    They will go back up in January at a slightly higher price.

    This year is unprecedented as far as online ordering goes as there are so many that aren’t going to the brick and mortar stores. I work in management for Costco’s East coast e-commerce building, and before Thanksgiving Fed-Ex and UPS pretty much said they wouldn’t guarantee Christmas delivery if you ordered after Dec 1st, so in that regard they under promised and over delivered.

    But do the covid math for a second, regardless of how any of us may feel about it. Most companies are giving time off for it and those that are out fall into 4 groups: those that tested positive for it, those that are at high risk, those that probably have the common cold but we’re told to quarantine and get tested anyway, and those that are taking advantage of it and went out with “symptoms” a couple weeks before the holiday. That’s A LOT of people not currently working just about everywhere.

    For retail, November - December (and January for processing returns) is normally the blackout period for time off, so with so many people away, it’s a miracle we got as many orders picked as we did. We had to load storage trailers with orders from cyber weekend to the following Friday and then swing them when UPS had the staff to come out and get them. We’re talking 150k-200k orders daily. And we were dealing with almost 100k a day for the 3 weeks leading up to thanksgiving.

    My Datsun weapons were to arrive 12/20. Tracking hasn't been updated since. If my package is lost so be it. I'm not gonna hassle the Post or Nonnef. I'm just going to re-buy come the 28th. If my original order ever shows up I can always re-sell them or give them to a friend. Now that I have Netflix Bumblebee in hand I'm going in on some of those 5mm peg adapters, see if I can mount that backpack upside down.

    Dang, the collector's shame runs deep. I've put things in the closet when I have company, but to truck it across town to place in storage is some 'Tell-Tale Heart' level panic. Just embrace Doofus Rick's philosophy.

    Oh, I'm not ashamed. I just ran out of space to display it all, and a lot of it was in the guest room.

    Outfitted my Datsun bros with the Nonnef kits. They look good. Will probably get wheel covers once they are available again.

    I want to like the new Prowl launchers... but they just seem a tad too big.

    FYI for anyone curious, the datsun wheel covers do fit in the POTP and Siege fembots HOWEVER they are loose and will fall out so adhesive or floor polish would be necessary. The datsuns and Hoist/Trailbreaker on the other hand work perfectly

    Thanks for confirming my idea to a degree which also solidified my purchase of them.

    Here’s some pics, like I said, they’re loose, but they would work with a bit of modification (adhesive or floor polish)

    Those hubcaps... So simple but so brilliant. Pic of Prowl and Bluestreak showing them off along with the weapon sets (I ended up painted the grays I got for Bluestreak silver).

    I just ordered an ER prime. Is there a decent pictorial review here somewhere for the trailer upgrades?

    Are the Datsun bros. wheel-covers compatible with Hoist/Trailbreaker?

    With all the anxiousness with further Thrust delays, I stopped putting off my ordering and got both Datsun weapon sets, Exhaust, and the existing Coneheads set. Should be spreading the weapons love around for the meantime while bite my nails off.
    I’ll probably order the wheel caps when Sunstreaker’s stuff comes along in Jan.

    I haven't been following this thread and just saw they had a set for Dirge and Ramjet.

    Do you know if Nonnef is making a weapon set for Thrust?

    I guess for him, the stock null rays would be G1 toy accurate(?), but a unique set for Thrust would be sweet.

    My guess is he's waiting to get some in hand to color match the red to do black launcher red missile version like the toy had in g1.

    Sweet! I mine as well put in an order for the Dirge and Ramjet missiles right now... Didn't want to pay shipping twice but it could be a while or if they even do a Thrust set, yeah?
