    This fandom is so weird. Something being in stock for more than a week, or month, or even several months in no way constitutes 'shelf warming' or 'warehouse warming'.

    It's a normal sales cycle.

    Except in this case I doubt it’s far off. Almost every Titan has been available at discount and this one is one of the more divisive ones. I can easily imagine this figure going on clearance though if you can snag one when it hits that price is another issue.

    Best price for Autobot Ark will probably be $118.99 for a brief window around Thanksgiving/Christmas if there’s an abundance… 30% max off MSRP seems to be typical for whatever toys Amazon picks for their major sales.

    Which means I’m passively holding out for the Jurassic Park collaboration set to go on sale for $73.49 (reg. $104.99), lol. :p

    I really don’t have space for another Titan but I also really want Teletran 1 so not sure how much I can resist a 30% discount on the Ark.

    I’m with you, though I was able to make room for the Ark. I’m trying to figure out what I’ll do next year if the rumor of Metroplex turns out to be true.

    Well according to amazon my Grimlock/Mirage 2 pack was delivered at 11:30 AM today. My security cameras says otherwise. Problem is I should probably wait till tomorrow to file a claim with Amazon. The issue is when they built our neighborhood for whatever moronic reason they re-used the same adress numbers for another street about 2 blocks over. So my house is 1774 NW "street name here" than that other street has the same part with a diff street name. 10 years ago we'd maybe only get 2-3 wrong things a year delivered to us by accident. Now this last couple years I swear we get everyone elses mail but our own because the mail carriers apparently can't read or maybe they're high or something when working. I'm thinking it probably just went to that other house by mistake, but they may not fix it right away. Like in my case if I get the wrong mail, well I'm not home from work till after 10 PM to even get the mail sometimes, so obviously I can't take care of it till the next day.

    On topic: My Grim/Mirage set should be here tomorrow.

    Re: Metroplex. Is the rumor a reissue or a new mold? Existing Metro has issues but it’s big and fun and newer releases seem to cost more for less. Could be a tough call.

    What do you mean Blaster? Like a small version of the character in player mode or a weapon for Mirage?

    Damn that’s unfortunate. Should’ve been placed above or below the cannon. Did you check the cardboard insert? Mine was rattling around on Grimlock’s side.

    That's a shame. I would be pissed. Just opened my Grimlock/Mirage and Sideswipe/Skywarp sets to check. Thankfully they're there.

    Had to send my sideswipe set back the sideswipe was all deformed. So I’ll take a missing weapon as a win

    What exactly was "deformed" about it? I only ask because on mine when I first transformed it like some very small pieces of plastic from the red panels that you flip out from the legs to make the upper rear "trunk" for lack of a better term came off off. Its not really noticeable so it wasn't a huge deal, and I mostly just got the set for the Skywarp, but I thought it was odd they came off from both panels like that.

    If my Grimlock/Mirage that was "delivered" today that is nowhere to be found went to the neighbors I'm thinking they woulda brought it back by now in the evening. Had to order a replacement set so now that won't be here till around the 2nd of next month <_<

    If Sideswipe & Maximal Skywarp are anything to go by, there will be stock available of Mirage & Grimlock to do an exchange with since Sideswipe & Maximal Skywarp are still available for purchase (sold & shipped by Amazon) after release.

    Amazon will typically send the free replacement out and then you can grab the weapon that you are missing then send the rest of that set back as the return. Advanced replacements like this also make things easier if it's a QC issue exchange since you can compare both copies in case you only have an issue with something below a mushroom peg or ball joint or anything else that "pops/clips" on. Just keep in mind that you will be charged for the advanced copy if you don't return what your supposed to by the cutoff date they give you when you setup the exchange.
