    He's been popping in and out, keep checking. I managed to snag one on the Amazon app about 20 mins ago.

    Just managed to snag him a minute ago, already gone.

    Of course I accidently signed up for Prime while rushing to order him so i had to inform them to end it after the 30 day trial so that will fill my in-box with Prime reminders for a while... what fun. But at least I have him locked in for the end of this month.

    Thanks for that! I just did my Skywarp preorder and nearly accidentally signed up for the trail as well. Good thing I read your post!

    Also, thanks to whoever it was that mentioned the "ship in Amazon packaging" option. You saved me some minor grief.

    Just so you know, I've done that and marked items as a gift that still came packed horribly

    I got my 3 reflectors from Amazon a couple weeks ago. Gotta say I'm having a little bit of buyer's remorse with the box set coming out.

    Think of the boxed set as individual characters, and the clones are drones.

    You can still return them to Amazon for a full refund.

    I think the 3 purples are amazing and will proudly have them next to the g1 colors. :)

    Depends what you're looking for. G1 cartoon colours or Mail in toy colours. I prefer the g1 cartoon personally.

    Woke up at 5:30 EDT for work, and Long Haul was back in stock. Gone by the time I left for work 20 minutes later. Mine has been preparing for shipment for a little over 12 hours, so im guessing Amazon is still getting them fully checked in and into a place where they can be shipped. I ordered mine the first time I was notified it was in stock.

    Ugh. Putting a Powerdasher in a three pack where two of the figures are basically just repacks is the worst kind of marketing, imo. They could have asked us to mail in UPC codes for him...or, you know, made an actual Powerdasher 3-pack...

    If it helps, consider the box set would have you paying an extra $10 for camera accessories...and I'm sure a 3rd party is working on those.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the toy recolors without using the the different heads or different torso designs of the toys.

    Yup. I've been checking back on my preorder compulsively hoping it ships sooner. I was pretty annoyed when they knocked TC out of the original Siege Wave 3 Voyager assortment.
