    I don’t collect MISB but this annoys me for a couple reasons. 1) part of the toy is the cardboard background which is smushed but more importantly 2) one of his spikes is bent. If the box had been fine and the spike bent, I’d likely just have dealt with it but in this case no.

    The spikes can be bent regardless of the packaging. They aren't rubbery but, they aren't completely rigid either (the amount of flex/bend/etc. increases as the radius/circumference decreases). Bends like this on other toys have typically been able to be fixed/improved with heat in the past (you shouldn't need to physically shape the part since it's not rubbery). If you're going to use heated water, make sure that it's distilled (it won't have chlorine so it won't damage POM plastic) in case the plastic is POM or something else affected by metals/chemicals/elements/etc. in drinking/spring/tap water.

    Why is Amazon taking so long with the Wave 4 deluxe preorders for Kingdom along with regular Tigatron to show up? The weekend's almost up yet still no sign of them. It's getting frustrating.

    Entertainment Earth listed Waspinator and Shadow Panther. TFSource listed Waspinator, Shadow Panther, and Tigatron. The Chosen Prime listed Waspinator, Shadow Panther, Pipes, Slammer, and Tigatron. I'm not sure about other retailers/e-tailers.

    The SS86 Sweep figure is currently in stock for preorder on Amazon, but it says it's not expected to ship until February 2022. Given that it's been showing up in stores a lot recently, is there a good chance if I order one Amazon will end up getting them and shipping it significantly sooner than that, like they did with the Battle Across Time sets, or would it actually probably not arrive until next year?

    Yep! I forgot to move him when I took the pic, but he is a work in progress IDW Ten. He was sitting in the transformers section and I was like, that's perfect. I'm thinking of adding some arrows once I get done painting him. Frikking thing hates taking paint though. ;) 

    The blue and white figures are a custom Siege Oiler/Slide. I like the characters and I felt like we need more trains, so clipped the wings off the shuttle mode and it makes a serviceable bullet train. At least to me!

    My replacement SS86 Wreck-Gar arrived early in an envelope even though CS assured me that wouldn't happen. That having been said . . .

    The box looks like typical wear & tear and it is in substantially better condition. There is no damage to the scenic packer/insert nor the plastic window outside of the right (your left if face to face) front top corner of the top lifting away from the window (it looks like a poor factory glue/seal application). I'll be keeping this one as it's well within the threshold that it should be for mass release general retail.

    Still no movement on the Wave 4 figures that are supposed to be here Tuesday. I've never gotten anything on time that wasn't shipped 48 hrs previously, so not looking good... :p

    Don’t think these will ship out until they are up to officially order. Expecting a delay like Gnaw.

    I would not be surprised. I'm actually good with it if it weren't for the fact that they charged me for Tigatron and Shadow Panther.
