    Definitely reusing the UW photos. But still no indication if this is exclusive to one certain site (and these sites are getting stock from them) or exclusive to multiple sites.

    He's been found on Amazon

    https://www.amazon.com/Transformers-Special-Blast-Action-Figure/dp/B077yyp738

    And was previously found at a distributor
    But the link there no longer works.

    Indications are it's a wider distribution than Amazon.

    I want to acquire BlastOff, Wreckgar, Punch/Counterpunch but my hopes aren't that high with Hasbro's Phenomenal distribution.

    Let’s not forget that Groove can still be found cheaper than Rook or First Aid on a regular basis. Amazon exclusives aren’t bad at all.

    As for Wreck Gar, both Brainstorm and the Clone 2-pack ended up hanging around on shelves for months and was widely available on Walgreens’ website.

    Slingshot and Wildrider were a little trickier but you can still get them and the entire Combiner they’re part of for <$100 so we can’t call them hard to get either.

    Oh, it's just RobotKingdom. No reason to get excited.

    Is robotkingdom known for bumping ship dates repeatedly? It says "July 1" right now, but does anyone have experience with them to say either:

    1) yea, they are usually on the nose with their dates/ pretty close.

    or

    2) pbbbt... yea, they're going to bump that repeatedly and what they say means nothing until they start sending shipping notices.

    Yes their dates are pretty good for them getting them, a reflection on when the toy is available in Hong Kong and other Far East markets

    How that relates to US pre orders and availability is anyone's guess!

    I finally caved and bought a pretty affordable UW Bruticus to replace my CW one after months of trying to find a reasonably priced UW Blast-Off. Within a few weeks this first leaked, and now it's up for pre-order.

    Y'all are welcome.

    If I didn't already have CW Blast-Off and PotP's distribution didn't suck donkey ass, I would so grab him. He's my favorite Combati.

    I hope to see confirmation that this is a dark brown version.

    The card art above vs the UW version would seem to say that it will be different.

    I'm excited but I'd be more if it weren't Robotkingdom. Already have the UW set so it isn't like I'm super desperate to have this one. Still, love the more accurate colors, hopefully, on this one. Sure the package art indicates that direction but it doesn't matter unless the actual product itself is shown.

    I want to see pics of the final product first before I even consider it.
    If it's colored the way the package art implies, he'll serve as a limb for Starscream.

    lol what

    You people in the US may have everything cheap and plentiful, but that's not the case everywhere else in the world.
    Most places didn't get any of those figures, period. And as someone who had to import CW Air Raid from Amazon US due to wave 2 never being released in the UK, that stuff's pricey.

    I wish Amazon would do preorders or, add the in stock notification.

    Jackasses don’t even have a preorder for Spider-Man.
