    Which brings us back to the recurring theme of how badly this hobby suffers for lack of good international distribution. I just don't why I can order something from Asia and get it in NY in two weeks, but Hasbro can't send things to Europe or Quebec, even if someone wants to pay the shipping charge.

    Preordered on the Pulse. Glad to add to the Mercenary ranks.

    Has this item been delayed by TakaraTomy, or only Hasbro Pulse?

    Damn, this is just as lazy as Nemesis Prime (although at least it doesn't have the wrong art on the side) , even though it was originally solicited as a Takara Selects release.

    Given its Takara Select number (TT GS-12), I thought it would have a new box, but they didn’t even try to cover the 35 (and WFC-S63 number), and the CG behind it remained unchanged. It's really frustrating

    Pass. The only difference is the "Mercenary " faction symbol change on the chest. I already got the Hasbro version many months ago.

    Should Soundblaster be a part of Premium Finish?

    Takara Soundblaster was coming out under the Selects line via Hasbro Pulse, right? Anyone got him via Pulse or not yet?

    That was a bit disappointing, but I got the black versions of the Dr Wu Chatter cassette-bots just for him.
