    I figured I prefer characters to retain their original names so cw quickslinger is slingshot as far as I’m concerned which freed up the name and since the two use the same mold it works

    He's gonna stay right on Bruticus.

    Shuttle Blast Off will go on Galvatronus with Wildrider, Slingshot, and Groove to finally complete him. As long as I can get him.

    He's gonna become a leg for King Starscream.
    The rest of the team is Dreadwind, Blackwing, and Off-road.

    If I remember correctly the BW: Uprising stories used that tactic to free up names.

    You do realize I just did a copy / paste of an earlier post & just added Repugnus & Nemesis Prime right...? xD

    And that Hasbro still has to distribute them to Amazon? Amazon doesn't just poof them out of thin air lol

    So when do we get them in the USA?
    And why does Australia always get stuff first? Isn’t the population like 3 people. Compared to the gazillions in the U.S.

    Because they're made in Vietnam, thus have a shorter distance to ship. Asia gets them first, Australia gets them second, and that's why they show up in Cali & on the west coast first in the U.S.

    I guess you just operate at a higher clock speed than I do.
    I considered it to have been gone pretty quickly.

    That's what I get for opening too many tabs about preordering figures.

    Not surprising. All of those YouTubers need one ASAP to get their reviews up before everyone else.

    Those three sites, the 2 UK ones especially, represent the cheapest way for UK fans to get these toys.

    Took longer than I thought to see through tbh!

    To tell you the truth, I was ready to see if a British middleman would be able to get a version. Oh well, there will be more opportunities.

    Once I get shuttle Blast Off I'm going to do a head swap with that and the jet version so that the jet version will be Blast Off while the shuttle Blast Off will be repurposed as Take Off as an new member for the Combaticons.

    I am swapping heads as well, but I am going to repaint them into Leader One and Spay-C
