Soooooooooooooooooooooo. What idw transforme is this supposed to be
I’m not sure is this is a Batman homage , Or a Onyx Primal homage
It’s both, thankfully! TFCon hinted at it in their FB post for it.
I'm still waiting for my Axe retool.
Not sure if I like enough to order, though I do regret passing on Aero Alpha Asterisk mode.
So how do you buy this and the other exclusives for this year?
Comment below is from Ages Three and Up Facebook, and is for Jaguar Covert, but I assume applies for this figure as well.
Starting Saturday, Oct. 24 10 Eastern. Can check here: https://www.agesthreeandup.com/exclusive-products/
The MMC products will also be available at https://www.toydojo.com/ and Planet Steel Express
The other two, Fans Hobby Wheel Blade and the Planet X figure, will be available only through The Chosen Prime, starting at the same time. The Chosen Prime

I've never ordered from Planet Steel Express before. Do they charge for shipping?
It varies. A lot of times when you preorder in advance with them, they will not, but near release, or post-release, they often will. The only recent examples I have were Zinnia ($11USD shipped to the US) and Ultio and Bedrock ($28USD totall shipped to the US) so shipping rates are pretty great considering the distance.
Its a Bat Wing inspired 3rd party Transformers design! Oooh. I like.
Planet Steel Express has always charged shipping on exclusives.

A3U is in BC, Canada. Toy Dojo is in Austin, Texas. Planet Steel Express is in Hong Kong.
If A3U already has their stock in store, as they seem to be suggesting above, (or if Toy Dojo also has its stock already), then if you live in North America, you're probably better off ordering from either of those places, because it will cost less to ship to you and get to you faster. A3U also has free shipping on orders over $200, and Toy Dojo on orders over $150, so that might come into play if you have or find other things to buy.
(If neither A3U or Toy Dojo have stock yet, it might take longer than ordering from PSX.)
I think some Canadians have mentioned that taxes come into play when ordering from A3U, but I don't have first-hand knowledge about that.
Ey, this is pretty dope.
Nifty idea for a retool.
I do pre-order from A3U and I go to the storefront from time to time as I'm in Vancouver, B.C. They do charge taxes for those that order online from Canada: Both Provincial and Federal taxes.
That saying, I might try and get this from either PSX or A3U's website.
Dangit. I REALLY want this--more than any 3rd party exclusive in years-- but after the avalanche of stuff lately I just do not a spare $100+ lying around.
Dangit dangit dangit.
What time do these go up on the site?
Day of the TFcon: October 24th and 25th. Time unknown, just get ready when the pre-orders go up on Toy Dojo and A3U.
The sever lack of white and gold tells me that this was meant to be based on Batman, not Onyx Primal... I think anything said after the fact is more of a “that works too!” instead of actual intent
