    There's enough random big stuff coming this year (Tidal Wave, Fort Max, Haslab, I am sure I am forgetting $everal) that I am kind of OK with his release date being iffy for now. My best friend's kid's birthday is mid March, and I planned to get him one since he loves space stuff, but the Technic Orrery is a backup. I'm planning on displaying Jaxamus with the space Lego instead of other TF's

    edit: I don't know anything about 3D Print-to-order websites. Would anyone be able to help me figure out how to get a small SORA-Q made?

    I got a shipping notice for this figure from TakaraTomy Mall. Which is odd since the order was placed from Campfire. Either way, this figure has started to ship.

    I think he looks fantastic, in a unique, change-of-pace way.

    It had not been explicit until recently the limited edition figure itself had no distinction from the non-limited. No slipcover, sticker, not being packaged together.

    At least this lunar lander won't land sideways... Unlike the U.S. version did very recently.

    This is easily one of the best looking Prime's to come out recently.

    I know it's Prime, but I feel it would've looked better if the red and blue parts were white and black, respectively, to give it some more cohesion.

    There’s only 1 Autobot it deserves to be made into:

    Looks interesting. I had it POed but I cancelled it. It does look good though. Maybe I'll change my mind but there is a lot of good stuff coming down the road through 2025 that will probably take priority.

    Between this, VNR, and Missing Link, we’ve just gotten the best, most interesting year of Prime toys ever.

    Is there an official street date for this? I ordered through anime-export and from everything I can tell, they don't send out in stock notices. So I have to keep checking their page to see when things come in stock.
