Do you think this new product could be stepping away from what we love about Transformers as toys?

    Cool, I'm in the $749 batch. You folks get yours, and report back on how it is, and I'll decide whether or not to keep my preorder :)

    Seems like Robosen got out there first, issuing invoices out 2 weeks ago for payment, but Pulse has gotten out first with delivery notices!

    FedEx has mine in hand 65 miles from my home with a delivery date set for tomorrow. Fingers crossed that holds. FedEx usually gets to my house between 2 and 3pm. I’ll post pics when I get it.

    Robosen sent me an invoice for the full payment back on 7/27. It's been paid since with no more updates.

    I just got the shipping notice for this. Completely unexpected. I was expecting it to ship December or later and was actually contemplating cancellation before then as my enthusiasm for this has waned quite a bit since the initial reveal. Lucky for me the money I had intended to go toward this is still in place, so I guess I'm in.

    I couldn't bring myself to spend half a mortgage payment on a self-transforming Optimus Prime that talks and walks. Good luck to those who did, though. I just hope it's not a $700 boondoggle once the awe wears off.

    I’d like to know where in the world a mortgage payment is that DIRT cheap.
