    Mine too.
    I ordered on september 18, it was temporarily out of stock but you could buy, not paying until they ship.
    I'm not used to amazon.com, is this usual? or should I cancel and get it from another place because they can eventually tell me no more Punchies?

    Grab a preorder for the Japanese version from bbts as a backup (they have hassle free cancellation and don’t charge till its in stock), keep both active and cancel whichever doesn’t show up first

    Anyone order after the original stock date? I had to cancel my preorder and reorder it about a week after release but no updated info on it

    Thanks, I'll check that.
    Which are the differences between japanese and american versions? I had a look and they seemed similar to me.

    They are the same. Maybe MAYBE Takara catches the misassembly and corrects it as it doesn’t release till Feb 2019 but I doubt it

    Ah, here is the thread. Haven't found it in a while.

    I got an e-mail by amazon that my pre-ordered item currently is out of stock and if I still want it and they will inform me, if they know, when this will be shipped. Dissatisfying. I pre-ordered in August.

    100% identical, no changes of any kind, cosmetic or otherwise. The sticker on the packaging is all that will be different. *looks over at Optimal Optimus* Not a thing.

    Actually... There's not a single screw on P/CP. He's all snapped/pinned together. No joke. I can't find a single screw on him. I don't think I've ever seen them do that before. I'm guessing due to the nature of his gimmick, that's how they had to design him in terms of construction.

    A lot of pins... 20, I've counted, so far.
