    We should all start taking bets as to when we will actually get this! Will he be delayed? If so, by how long? Which vendor will get their order first? Which group of fans will receive their orders first (TFSource or RobotKingdom)?

    I'm guessing we'll get the info on the preorders for Protector later this week when Shadow Scyther sells out.

    Reluctantly paid the higher Robotkindgom shipping price. Glad to have one locked down, though. Now I'm just hoping that tfsource doesn't magically add more quantity (so I spent $28 on shipping for nothing).

    hmmm I wonder when the Knock-off SG Rodimus are gonna start showing up.... hahaha or when kitbashers are gonna start selling their own versions on Ebay? I bet they've already started after seeing it sell out so fast and that some of the buyers don't own a SG Rodimus or Genkei one. or the fact one SG rodimus is going for 400+ on ebay. its only the beginning of the fanboy frenzy.

    Well, it started with 300 at TFS and 100 at RK. so if they added 50 more at RK, we're still at only 450 so far...

    He's up for pre-order. We know exactly how much they're charging for this, and you can indeed pre-order one now. So... You can't justify what they ARE charging for this?

    "Gentei". The second syllable changes too :)

    Shit...I just couldn't pass this up so I ordered from RobotKingdom. I don't own a Shattered Glass Prime, but this thing looks so damn cool. Shit.

    Sorry if this has benn mentioned before, but I hope that they'll eventually release that Scythe for the Hot Rod/Rodimus Armor the same way they eventually released the shoulder missiles, faces, and rifle for the City Commander Armor. I like the design, but I'm not a big fan of the dark armor.

    Well, thinking about it a bit more, this might help deter any delays when it gets ready ships out next year by doing this preorder so early. They will at least have an accurate count as to how many to make and send to each vendor.

    dumb question, but couldn't find an answer at RK. do they charge for pre-orders the moment it's placed?

    Wow, sold out already, huh? Good thing I don't have an SG Rodimus, or I'd be kinda pissed that I missed out on this thing. Lol, that's what I get for, you know, going to sleep!

    Meh, I don't see myself shelling out the crazy prices for SG rodimus and while a blue might look good in robot mode I think it would be really weird in alt mode.
