    There's a big possibility that you can still order it... But less likely with Hasbro Pulse or TTMall.

    Why wouldn't you pre-order it now and just cancel it later if you don't want it? They don't charge you until it releases anyway.

    So there can be something to complain about later when they are all sold out? :p

    Assume zero. This isn't a regular retail figure. So if you want it, this is your shot.

    ...then preorder it now, and if you change your mind in the next 5-7 months, cancel it. Literally what the person you're responding to already suggested.

    There is no penalty to doing so on Pulse. The only penalty is if you *don't* preorder, change your mind, and then can't find it.

    Which can be a considerably more costly route.

    I have a few preorders on several things, mainly not transformers, so I have just gotten used to it at the moment on what I will be spending really. It isn't bad if you prepare mentally for it

    Just pre-order it right now. Pulse will ping your CC/Debit for $185.99 and it will drop off in a matter of minutes and won't bother again until it ships. Then if you really need to you can cancel it in October if it falls off your want list.

    Looks like Pulse has sold 1480 God Neptunes so far. They allotted 3000 in their coding (probably just a holder)/June 15 date or bust.

    Same way I feel with everybody ragging on Siege Apeface. The details look fine in person, under natural lighting. Not the best they could be, but eh, not so terrible that I feel the need to do anything about it. The translucency just looks shit under intense studio lighting conditions, is all.

    Everyday I'm so tempted by this guy, especially since its technically a new character. However I already spent so much in KP and this set is the exact same molds minus 1 (I know there is some retooling on Scylla, but you get my point).

    I'm in an uncertain financial situation (as I know a lot of people are) and spending $200 in a combiner I have in a different color scheme is not a great use of my money. OTOH he looks so f'ing awesome. I like his colors way better than vainilla KP. Also, and this is stupid, but it would get me really wanting to get UW Megatronia and Ruination. I apply the same logic here: they would be my prefered color scheme, but I already have that combiner and it has 1 less member.

    I know people say "preorder and cancel if you decide you can't get it", but the thing is I know they right decision is to skip this set. No matter how much I want it nothing is gonna change that (unless I win the lottery). If I preorder him, I know I won't cancel and then have buyers remorse that won't let me enjoy the set. So in my case "pre order just in case" is the worst advice :lol .

    Then spare us the wall of text diatribes about the evils of exclusives once this comes out and is going for 2 to 3 times more on ebay, you prioritized other stuff above it. What you want is the ability to buy stuff at your leisure, at the price you feel it should cost, even years after the fact. Collecting doesn't work that way.
