    That's why they're laughing. I'll admit, I thought Primes Price was gonna be $250 AJ but I'll take I'll allow it this time.

    Doesn’t the delays happen near the end of the year? I’m thinking around Sept/Oct. Wheeljack and Prowl immediately comes to mind. What do you say @Sam ?

    3.0 looks great, comes with starscreen head, battle damage head and side from pics I've seen shame I can't justify price, maybe I'll get lucky and a third party will do a version cheaper.

    It can happen anytime. Unlike 3Ps, official delays are usually within a few weeks. MP43 was delayed more than a month due to CNY.

    Delays have usually happened at the beginning of the year (Cheetor, Exhaust) or nearer the end (Prowl, Wheeljack, Bumblebee, Tracks, Road Rage).

    Think there was only one release that was delayed from August to September (MP-18B).

    Having a brand new mould in August is unheard of in recent MP history, so maybe it could be a good time to get Prime out. It’s good that production has already begun (in whatever stage). A delay of MP-44 would have a knock-on effect on MP-45 as well, which would be pretty lame. But I have faith that they’re organised enough now ;)

    Didn't Dinobot come out in August last year? I'm pretty sure he was released without delays so that sets a good precedent :D

    July, after that there was a release every month. I think Shadow Panther was August.
