    Still no notice for me. I only did the deposit, so I guess that makes sense they'll ship out to who paid in full first, but I was expecting to at least get a payment notice. When did you pre-order?

    I placed the order in March. But still have not gotten a ship notice, suspect I missed the boat and will be in the 3rd batch...

    Look at this "monstrosity" next to BMB Ironhide and MPM-03 Bumblebee. 20190917_130734.jpg
    Just need Jazz, then a properly sized Ratchet.
    I was actually sitting here thinking to myself: "I wonder what @leus thinks about Black Apple's Prime?" Now I know. He was gracious enough to stop by and impart his very important feelings about this figure in this thread being both productive and necessary to the ongoing conversation. How delightful, and how lucky are we to receive his wisdom?! Thank you!

    I get not liking the figure but calling it a monstrosity? It's just a piece of plastic lol

    On a side note, I take it that Ironhide's shoulders are still really loose right?

    I actually prefer ss4 since the transformation is a great callback to saiyan origin. UI is interesting, but I thought Goku already mastered the ability to react without thinking when he trained with Popo in Dragon Ball.

    I've been torn between ordering from ShowZ and tf-direct.
    I have the money to pay for the figure in full, but the issue is tf-direct says they may be getting the figure in stock sometime in October but has no option to even pre-order. On the other hand, ShowZ does have the option for deposit or pay in full but says they will receive their stock sometime between October and December.
    Even if I wait until October to snag the figure from tf-direct, I have no idea if the stock will go towards fulfilling pre-orders from people who managed to place their orders beforehand.
    What's everyone's experience?
    Should I try my luck with tf-direct, or just secure him now from ShowZ and just hold off that it might not get here for awhile?

    Preordered in March, paid in full after notice yesterday. I'm not one to pay in full before a definite release but hoping I made 2nd batch.

    I feel like they are much more loose on BMB version than the official. I'm too impatient to wait for BA's version. My Prime need his weapons specialist.

    I can completely respect that, SSJ4 is still pretty awesome all around!
    I’m impatient too, but I may just have to wait for BA, darn

    I'm impatient enough that I just bought the vanilla MPM ones and take them as the definite scale.
