    Pretty much. Western retailers can't compete with them on price.

    Western retailers still get FT products 2 weeks before overseas.

    I don’t know how I feel about that pic of Soundwave seemingly stimulating himself.

    You are now watching Soundwave After Dark.

    Hey man, that’s just how he plays the jams… maybe that’s why he spent more time ejecting things than touching buttons.

    Fixed. Whew, the children should be fine now.

    Anyway, obviously there are (literally) bigger fish to fry with potential TFCon reveals, but with this guy imminent, I'd like to know what the plan is for - minimum - Buzzsaw and Ratbat.

    I snagged a deposit on this at terry's the other day while no one was lookin but I haven't used him before so anyone got a guess at when he'll get it? Been lurking for years but I've never been on a preorder hype train so :)

    I have a PO from Bombusbee and haven’t gotten anything. I’m getting a little antsy because my bday is coming up in the middle of the month and that’s my present. I don’t require it to be here on that day or anything but it would really suck if it doesn’t come until Christmas or something.

    Welcome! The trick is not to get too hyped and breathe. If not, the excruciating wait will kill you.

    Well, I just got my invoice request and paid it off. But I only got the request for the main bot and not the cassettes even though I preordered them at the same time - does this mean they’ll ship him now and then invoice and ship the cassettes later?

    Shipping charge (or free shipping) is determined by the entire order so A3U only ships when the entire order is in stock. But you can contact them and pay separate shipping to have individual items shipped

    Ditto here. I'm actually kind of shocked that he's releasing relatively on time. I thought for sure this would be pushed back into the new year. If they keep it up with it release schedule, boy is my wallet going to hurt. Lol

    I got my pay balance request from TFs-Express. Total before shipping = $165 ($25 + $140 balance). Cheapest shipping is $47 so $212 total. Not bad I think?

    Or I can "hold it" until another PO comes in stock, but the only other thing I have pending with them is Tesla 2.0. I'm almost afraid to ask but do we have ANY idea when that guy is coming out? Should I wait to save a bit on shipping or just ship them separately. Hmmm...
