    They look super good. Very glad I got my preorders in.

    Do Thrust's wings not flip all the way up, though?

    Runabout has always looked cooler to me than Runamuck. The black really stands out whereas Runamuck's white feels bland and plain.

    I pre-ordered Runabout last night on Kapow Toys as soon as the pre-order was live, and this morning he was sold out.

    A shame that these guys will be hard to find due to scummy scalpers.

    The Amazon 2 pack was barely up for order when they DID have it and the prices are skyrocketing on them now.

    I dunno man. They were up for pre-order for a very long time. I feel sorry for those who apparently got their pre-orders cancelled but not for the once who kinda slept through this. Everything is available only for so long. That's how things are. Even retail figures aren't available forever

    I really hope these will be regular retail so I can pick them up through HLJ.

    You're absolutely right about Runabout: his colours are far better. That Knight-Rider/Darth Vader vibe. :cool: 

    And yeah I had some stress getting one bought last night. IDT ran out in 40 minutes before I'd even seen they were up for sale. I managed to get one elsewhere but this morning 4/5 outlets are Sold Out. Only Forbidden Planet has any left and I'd worry about them getting any stock at all.

    And if I can't find Dirge and Ramjet for sale anywhere, why should I bother with Thrust?

    If Hasbro think I'm going through this shite for Kingdom they've got another think coming. :mad:

    A shame I didn't pick up that Generations Thrust at retail back then, now this newer one will be harder to acquire.

    Phew, thankfully Im from SE Asia region and these two releases are distributed by Hasbro Asia, so there's no US store rights or exclusivity BS.
