    It was probably never updated after the Chapter 4 (which explicitly states that it's the final chapter and/or conclusion) pre-orders went live.

    Shadow Panther has been marked down to $19.99 for now.

    Even at that price AND the $2 coupon I have from Amazon hasn't convinced me to buy him yet....

    I got him, but that face...ugh. Even a mother couldn't love it. But he fulfills his purpose of bulking up the Preds well enough. Towards the back of the shelf where the ugly kids go... ;)

    I mean...I should get him to support the beast bots...but the prices nowadays have just made me pickier with my purchases I guess.

    I'll ponder it a little today I guess.

    I think he's very skippable. I bought him and am not sure why. I think it was just the novelty of finding a new TF figure on the shelves. I like the Cheetor mold more than many, but I already have two decos of that, and pre-ordered Ravage, which gives me a black kitty 'Con already.

    My suggestion is unless you are really into that mold or character, wait it out for a clearance sale.

    Truth. I preordered him and kinda of regret not waiting for a sale or Amazon damaged box sale. My box was damaged anyway because they shipped it in an envelope.

    With these price increases, I've canceled half of my preorders for figures I'm on the fence for and might pick up when it goes on sale.

    Edit: Just returned Goth panther due to damaged box and will wait for price lower than $19.99.

    I'd rather wait for BBTS before I pay for SP/Waspinator, but saving but $7.50 plus shipping plus associated taxes on that amount cannot be passed up. Thanks!

    Yea, I can't see any reason to update from the original BW version. Sure it's dated but, it also looks very different next to the newer molds and, the beast mode is beefier like an actual panther (cheetahs and panthers are drastically different):

    I'll just be sitting here waiting on KBW Tigatron repaints/retools into other large cats . . .

    Found a MP-31 Delta Magnus for 19286 yen/$170.00 shipped on Amazon Japan. Is that a good deal?

    It looks like 3rd party sellers might have wised up to Amazon shipping toys in bubble envelopes. Amazon sent the Cyberverse Spark Armor Sky-Byte I ordered in a bubble envelope but, the product was in bubble wrap and they were placed inside of a clear Ready To Ship bag that was sealed. The cardback is al kinds of crushed but, I feel like it wasn't from shipping because the cardboard isn't smooth, it has a visible texture that you can feel which honestly looks like moisture/water damage (there is no odor though). The cardback is punctured but, it looks like Sky-Byte's back did that combined with pressure at some point during the logistics chain. It's still sealed and nothing is missing so it is indeed still "new" but, you can tell this was something that a retailer had to mark down considerably to sell.
