    Got Tracks today. Box came damaged but the best part was the instructions being misprinted, I'm missing half of the instructions. I was able to figure things out but the legs are just not good. I was furious when I first opened it but after taking a few hours to spend with it I'm just disappointed. I'm going to try and get an exchange from Amazon so I can get one with full instructions and maybe, maybe better leg joints, but I may just take the refund if they offer it.

    My recommendation, keep a wishlist on Amazon and check it often throughout the day. I've managed to snag items, or even the occasional blink and you miss it discount, just by keeping an open tab and refreshing the wishlist randomly. This thread isn't going to be updated as much, and maybe not at all if someone happens to get lucky but it's the last one so they don't even post about it.

    Ordered Kingdom Tracks on July 15, arrived today! Figure looks great, but holy heck the waist and legs are a hot mess.

    Amazon sent mine in an envelope that was smashed all to bits. What's really wild is now they're charging $39.99 for Kingdom Soundwave, the same price as the Netflix voyager with cassettes for a core class figure. :confused: 
    I guess you could get one from the warehouse (maybe my smushed return) for only $26.38.

    Tracks got delivered. Time to cancel the Target order.

    Some parts are loosey-goosey. Time to get the liquid acrylic out.

    40 dollars for a 10 dollar mini figure. Toy collecting isn’t cheap for sure.

    -The bend forward-and-back at the waist is really loose on both hips/legs.
    -The feet are on ball joints, so one foot is really tight, the other one is super loose on my copy.
    -When you handle him, the lower legs untab super easy, so it's not fun to pose around (note picture below).

    The car mode is sweet, and the robot profile is cool. Just the legs is a bit of a bummer. The transformation is okay. I wouldn't pick him up on a whim to fidget around with.

    Tracks looks like a remarkable missed opportunity. Great design with awful implementation (so I've heard). At least some liquid magic should fix some of the loose joints, but I don't of any way to fix the poor lower leg tabs or the gaps in vehicle mode. Sadly I know if they "fixed" the problems with a second run I know I'd probably bite.

    Gotta love that algorithm! Honestly there are people for whom this price doesn't matter, but you know this will be hitting B&M stores and be easy to find soon enough. People need patience. I see people all the time on FB see a PvP or Emgo early review and think that means the toy is on their shelves and they missed out.

    Anyway...

    Today is Friday! Any thoughts on reveals or restocks? With Waspinator and Tigatron leaked we can't be too far from the official wave 4 reveal. It has been over 3 months since wave 3 was revealed. Feels like it is time.

    If there was ever a figure that needed a ko with improvements made to it, this would certainly fit the bill.

    Happens when no one wants to do anything about the corporate machine rigging the system. Shit like this is why Bezos went to into “space” for 10 minutes.

    Yes because whining about billionaires on an online forum will change anything.

    I don't blame him. He's a billionaire many times over. What else was he gonna do with the money after buying his 3rd yacht?

    On a side note, I ordered tracks on 4/9 and still says arriving 9/3. I wonder how Amazon prioritizes shipments...

    This. my Tracks is busted. The plastic on the steel peg thats connected to the side of the legs that connects to the feet? Cracked on both sides and I barely transformed it. Gonna need another one.

    Meanwhile Amazon is like "We're sorry we charged you for Rodimus. Your refund is on the way" Days later no refund. So I just cancelled Rodimus. Rather get him from Target or Pulse anyway. And Immediatly got my refund for him. heh

    I guess two days ago. I just checked Amazon after target started delaying stuff and he was available to order.

    Interesting that you got yours already. Did you have to pay $22.99 for yours? I think I ordered mine through the wishlist method. Any wishlisters get their Tracks yet?
