My medic set still says it'll be on the 15th
I did preorder them and I'm still hoping they get a re-stock because mine keeps getting pushed back. Now it's slated for mid-December. I'm not holding my breath.
I really, really, really wish that major characters like Ratchet, Skywarp (TWICE!!!), Thundercracker, Ironhide, Prowl, freaking Bumblebee, Soundwave, Elita-One (she was major in the Netflix show) etc. weren't relegated to these super hard-to-find exclusives. I get that it was pretty much "exclusives or nothing" so I'm happy we have them at all, it just sucks that this is by far the mainline I've wanted the most -- it's literally what I always wanted them to do -- but it's also by far the most stressful line to collect I've ever been a part of. Like, Soul of Chogokin level stress. Hot Wheels level stress. LOL. Part of why I got into TFs was, at least back then, it was super chill relative to other "toy collector" fandoms. It was relatively easy to acquire even rare pieces back then. Now, you had better preorder the instant those shits go up unless you want to be sweating bullets. And God forbid your pre-order gets canceled... then, you're pretty much just assed out.
I ordered my Medic back on 10/5 and mine was cancelled.
Yeah agree with you there on the exclusives. I asked in the Siege thread but go no answer... But it seems like this particular wfc line has had the most exclusives ever out of all the past ones it seems like.
It looks fair price until you get to the shipping.
$70 to ship to the UK.
yep its a crazy world we're living in nowadays. no matter what we do or how it gets done, seems nobody is safe anymore.
My medic set was canceled. So fucking pissed.
Also, wanted to add. Saw a video of someone's ring footage of an amazon driver taking picture of the package at the door, then pinking it up and putting it back in the van and leaving with it. Amazon driver's are taking packages too.
thats is crazy. so even some drivers cant be trusted. i cant believe someone would risk the amount of trouble involved in being caught stealing while on the job. insanity.
SAME HERE, SUCH FUCKIN BULLSHIT, IM SO DONE
Now my Gigawatt went from arriving today by 8pm to arriving DEC 20th. This date seems to be a generic estimated date many of us are getting. I don't like how this is looking. What a mess.
My Medic set was ordered on 8/28 and that was delivered. The Ironhide/Prowl set was ordered on 8/17 and that has fallen into limbo with no estimated arrival date.
AND THATS IT FOR ME..................im out, anyone wanna buy my complete Earthrise collection?
Got an updated email that my set got shipped today and is supposed to be delivered tomorrow.
Very well done sir!
Gigawatt came today along with the Medics (and Runabout from Target). Gigs was in a bubble envelope unfortunately, but only has a minor crease going along the back.
Obviously they're not smart enough realizing that the house had a ring on it...and are probably going to get fired once the owner reports them...I think....But yeah crazier times, and unemployment isn't helping with that.
...Got the coneheads set?
Ordered mine in october.
