It’s finally sold out.
As one of the few UK-based buyers who put in an order with Robosenstore.com when they briefly failed to make the listing US-exclusive, I was surprised not to have had my order cancelled yet. When I contacted them a few months ago, they admitted that it was a glitch on their end that allowed me to place the order in the first place and I fully expected that this would ultimately result in a 'sorry, here's your money back', particularly when Hasbro Pulse's second wave of pre-orders went up and you couldn't even access the page in the UK (VPNs notwithstanding). I had pretty much resigned myself to the idea that it was only a matter of time before Robosen formally cancelled it, but, since I'd heard nothing and we were getting close to October, I contacted them again, just to be sure. They told me that they're looking into using a new UK partner to fulfill their UK orders and will reach out with this option soon. So, if you're like me and you live in the UK and haven't yet cancelled your preorder, it looks like you might be in luck. Of course, it might all fall to pieces, but its nice to know they're actually trying to fulfill the orders, when it would be so much easier for them to just cancel them and offer them up to US buyers.
Many thanks for this. I'm in exactly the same situation. I've left my order open as I still want it.
Part of me wonders why they can't just ship it, given the paid postage - but that makes returns/guarantees/tax tricky.
How can I do this programming?
Well know when it’s released.
So I checked Hasbro Pulse and noticed the date has been changed from October to Spring 2022. I am sure this is due to the pandemic and shipping containers but I do hope when it's finished, they update the gun sounds so it's the same as the cartoon. Megatron and Optimus prime had the best weapons sounds in my opinion. My biggest concern is with the battery. Batteries don't last forever and I did send a note to the Robosen asking if there is a way to easily replace them but I haven't heard anything official or seen any kits.
My PO (made on 4/9/21) is still showing 10/31/2021 as an approximate shipping date.
I personally do not think it's going to be shipped by then but I'll be happy to be proven wrong.
Chip shortage, patience shortage, meh
Lol nice dance moves my wife has challenged me to make him do the dance from some bodyyy odddy odddy song
Incredible stuff. Can't wait to have this and show it off
Now I'm back to being hyped ordering one if that's how easy it will be to customize movements (and make your own dances).
This wait is killing me, that looks like so much fun!
Here we go.
Awesome until the tiny Megatron at the end
That part made me laugh even more! Now I'm getting even more hyped for this thing and glad I didn't cancel my pre-order.
I was checking facebook and it mentioned it was being shipped soon. I am hoping that is the case and not another delay (Hasbro Pulse said Spring but now it doesn't have a date listed (Estimated ship date subject to change, items may ship earlier or later than anticipated without notice). I just hope there is a way to change out the batteries down the road and it would be cool if we could add a few voices or sound effects (can always dream).
It won't be taking AA batteries, but you can change out the battery pack - you just need a screwdriver, a source for a replacement pack and basic skills. I doubt the battery will be hardwired in. Even if it is, cutting/splicing a couple wires is not a huge deal.
Adding sounds might be on the menu with software updates, who knows. There might even be custom software to run it that opens up more options, if someone hacks it.
Are taking bets yet that this will not ship until next year (2022)? I pre-ordered when it was announced but I have the sinking feeling I won't get to play with this until next year.
You can add music and actions yourself, and there are instructional videos on youtube.
