    I guess you’d need to know how much the shipping costs would be for both together to make a properly informed decision.

    You def save by holding, I'm shipping mine with 2 other items and the shipping is costing me $69, that's $23 per figure. So in the end, I'm paying $188 for Acoustic wave which is amazing.

    I just emailed Kapow to see if they'll let me pay off the balance on my deposit for this guy ahead of time, rather than wait to be invoiced, as I don't want to find myself short when the invoice comes. I know exactly what I'm like with money and I have $900 worth of preorders to pay for this month :'O(

    I have Soar and Stomp waiting for Tesla 2.0 to land at TFs express. Acoustic wave I have ordered with omega. So I’m waiting for Tesla before I ship. It saves quite a bit actually. I reckon we might get Tesla in December?

    Na, if the tapes come out in end of November/start of December then we still have Rig to release, which was scheduled before Tesla. I think we will be pushing it to get Tesla 2.0 before CNY

    Chomp was supposed to be in December, I'm assuming January or February now.

    Assuming that everything gets pushed forward one month: Tapes in November, Rig in December, Tesla in January and then Chomp in February. Though there a lot of potential roadblocks, especially as the COVID19 lockdown misery continues in China. And with CNY coming up, let's hope that they managed to push out Chomp before that.

    Wishful thinking on my part as usual :D 

    Think we might get 2 in 1 month? :eek: 

    I’d quite like a run of new figures for the first 1/2 of 2021 and leave the reissues out. Easy to say when you’re up to date with all releases though, I guess.

    I thought Rig and Tesla were originally scheduled to ship the same month?

    I don’t know about you guys, but if Acoustic Wave isn’t able to transform into a screen-accurate version of his Cybertronian street lamp mode, I will consider this the worst FT release since Rouge. It will be a complete failure.

    Even the Siege one could pull it off!

    I have two speeches prepared. One to give in the event that Acoustic Wave has a lamp mode, and one to give in the event that it does not. Gentlemen, I pray I never have to give the latter speech. It's in your hands now. The eyes of the world are upon you. It is not merely for today, but for all time to come that we should perpetuate for our children's children this great love of lamp modes. This is the day the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our lampdependence day!

    Er, what was the question?
