    From what I’ve been reading, common issues are paint peeling on the top corners of his chest. Also heard that getting his trailer to tab in requires a bit more effort than it should.

    I've been having some issues with my Amazon orders getting lost. Amazon uses USPS and with tracking number the package disappears somewhere inside the USPS facility and tracking number no longer updates. Anyone else having issues like me?

    Yep, lost 2 orders in the last month. One has shown up after Amazon refunded me, but no sign of the other.

    My lost Kingdom Galvatron showed up very late last week after Amazon had refunded me. Kingdom Tracks was supposed to be here today by 8pm but tracking number has not updated not since yesterday and it said transferring to USPS facility. Strange because yesterday the tracking showed the package was an hour away from my house - now there is no update. I really want my Kingdom Tracks. I also have it on preordered on Target with expected date of 8/5-8/9.

    Man, that stinks. Hopefully it's just some USPS kinks being worked out and you'll end up with a free Tracks!

    Slug, Wrek-Gar, and Gnaw were all up after the Fan Friday when they were announced. They sold out of pre-orders, to the listings don't show up on most searches anymore.

    yes I preordered all of them on Amazon as soon as they were available for preordered after the last Pulsecon.

    the key is that Amazon algorithm makes it hard to find or search any item on their website if the item is not in stock or no longer available or doesn’t have an ETA (SS wreckgar, Gnaw, Slug are currently all sold out of preorders). The way to get around amazon’s search limitations is to search for an Amazon listing using Google.

    type in Google “transformers Studio series slug Amazon” and the Amazon listing for slug will appear.

    This is exactly what I do when I have to search for something on Amazon that's either out of stock, no longer available, and/or doesn't have a ETA.

    SS86 Dinobot Slag's product listing is still up on Amazon. You won't be able to do this with Grindor.

    Kingdom Galvatron shipped. Let's see if his shoulders are fixed.

    So looks like tracks is the black sheep in terms of QC of this wave (aside from galv shoulders but even with wrong shoulders he is solid).
    Mine is on my POL at BBTS, I hope that he is not a mess

    Honestly, Tracks has problems at the design level. The QC isn't really an issue (scratches, okay sure, but the rest is all flawed on paper) and his design is just...

    Yeah. There are certain oversights that lead me to believe they gave up after designing the upper body.

    Yes they just "stopped"

    It's complicated but not "bad"

    The trailer doesn’t tab in properly, it just pops out for no reason
