Unless I missed it, no more were released on the 20th like they initially announced.
I checked my Pulse pre-order and Fulfillment Status changed from Unfulfilled to Item Shipping Soon.
Same here. I wonder if that's automated when it detects the estimated order date is coming up, or if it's actually moved to some sort of beginning shipping phase. Still no precharge for me.
Now we get to play the game of who gets them first - direct from robosen orders or pulse orders.
I'd wager direct orders will come first, pulse orders will probably be double shipped.
Showing estimated ship date of 10/1/2021 for me.
Well, it is with some disappointment that I had to cancel my preorders (August 2nd) for this guy due to unforeseen financial circumstances. Was thinking it would've made 2 spots for preorder available since I cancelled 2 but I guess that isn't how it works? Maybe I'll get another chance down the road but I'm not too dismayed over it, $700+ is a lot to throw down. Hope everyone else gets to enjoy this guy here shortly.
I literally just cancelled mine as well for basically the same reasons and then saw this. I was really hoping I’d have the money by the time it was available, it’s an amazing figure & hopefully we’ll both have it eventually!
My Transmutate order on Pulse also had that "Item Shipping Soon" message since it was scheduled for 08/01. This morning the message went away the order is now expected to ship 09/01. So yeah, sadly that message means nothing and it is just automated based on the scheduled date. So those of us with 08/02 orders may still get bumped to October like everyone else. And at the rate Pulse is shipping stuff it could end up being even later by the time it actually goes out. Someone here did mention they got a final invoice recently though so who knows. If I recall correctly it wasn't from Pulse.
i just canceled mine as well. My reason was that its a lot to put down on my credit card and with robosen saying that battery is non replaceable and they don't sell replacement batteries in the U.S. i wasn't gonna take a chance of having this thing's battery go out on me like people have with their sphero bb8's battery. Not gonna go through the hassle of taking this thing apart to fix it if something fails......
Ooh didn't know about the battery part, great point though...
Anyone else’s fulfillment status on Hasbro Pulse just change from “shipping soon” to “unfulfilled” ?
Yep. Still estimating 08/02 but I expect that'll get bumped.
Mine listed shipping date 10/01/21. Decided after lots of thought that I really don’t need it. While it is cool, $700 is too much. Cancelled mine, so hopefully someone here can nab a good price on it.
I hope not. Would not be a good choice for Robosen and/or Hasbro to change the release date the day of anticipated street date.
Only reason it “may” be acceptable is if they were able to complete 1 or all 3 important “ wishlist updates”
When you say “Transform”, Optimus faces the correct way without having to say another phrase
They find a way to make the head flap “remove” automatically.
IMO Both Robosen and Hasbro has been just a bit too quiet about this release.
Indeed, my 08/02 is now 10/31. Oh well. Gives me more time to set that money aside alongside the upcoming TF HasLab and probably Galactus.
Mine was changed also ditto your sentiments my friend..the planet devourer comes
Anyone know if there are any reviews on youtube from people that actually purchased one..not just the spokes people that were given free copies?
If I can be selfish for just 1 moment. This hurts me in at least 4 different ways.
I had the money saved up for this NOW to pay my credit card off after I make the purchase.
The bonus points I was going to get time limit for me to make a purchase is on October 1st. I got the new card specifically for this purchase back on July 1st thinking that would be plenty of time for the card to arrive to update my payment info on Hasbro Pulse.
It will be too cold in Minnesota to go play with this outside with my son on October 31st.
I waited 4 months (actually 37 years) for this and to find out on the day this was being estimated to be shipped that it’s delayed feels like I Energon Mace right to my Spark.
That's rough but at least if you have the money now you can set it aside for the next couple months and know you're ready for it whenever it does ship. The dates are just estimates so stuff can ship earlier or later... but since they put the new estimate out not one, not two, but nearly 3 more months ahead of its scheduled date for some of us I imagine they think it's going to be quite a delay. If my order, estimated for today, ships later than other people who had their order estimated for 10/2 from the very beginning I will be pretty upset. Hasbro Pulse is already on thin ice with me because of how ridiculously late I ever get anything compared to stores.
