    It may just be the repack of Kingdom Blaster.
    Since Hasbro hasn't revealed it yet, all we get is a 'hidden figure'.
    The Kingdom wv5 deluxe listing is the same.
    Pipes, Slammer & 2 hidden figures.

    This may be a bit of a dumb question, but is there anything I should know before ordering as a Canadian? Just because it’s an American site is there anything that I should look out for, or should it be smooth sailing?

    I think Kingdom wave 5 deluxe is Pipes, Slammer, Airazor, Blackarachnia.

    Source, Entertainment Earth listing:
    Transformers Generations Kingdom Deluxe Wave 5 Set of 4

    If I was a bettin' man, I'd say it's Tigatron.

    Fellow Canadian here. FYI, you'll be dinged on taxes guaranteed when it crosses the border. Unless it's something that can't be ordered from a Canadian merchant, most collectors I know just order from local independent merchants.

    Alright, that’s about what I expected. Just wanted to make sure that they didn’t have anything out of the norm to worry about for Canadians.

    Thanks for the help!

    No problems mate, hope you'll consider the Cybertron.can boards with local sightings, Canadian collector discussion and our site merchant sponsors (who have great selection and service).

    Namely, Amir from Toysnowman is awesome, and gets his stuff quickly (he sold all of his newly released Kingdom figures already, getting another batch already).

    Shameless plug for a referral code:
    Canadian Toy store for Action Figures & Collectibles & Statues

    You'll get a 5% discount code (unless it's changed since then)

    Happy hunting!

    That Lumitent posted up thread? I've got one of those and it's one of the nicest made figures I've ever had the pleasure of fiddling with. The engineering is just out of this world good on it. If you have the scratch, it's highly recommended.

    It's incredibly tempting. I saw one of the Chinese Youtubers review\transform it, might have been SwiftTransform or SimplifyTransform. It's easily the best jetformer I've ever seen. Very pricey, especially with my GT-99DX ReBuilder coming in stock soon, but hopefully that high price means it will still be available for some time!

    There's also this. It looks like they do some basic transforming? Possibly combine in some way, using the side rig pieces?

    I knew it! I decide to ship my POL and now all the Unrustables pre-orders are coming in soon!

    If I had just held out for a few more days I could've just shipped them with my other stuff lol!

    I'm not mad at all. It's just really freaking funny. At the end of the day I'm just happy I'll be getting them sooner rather than later.

    Yeah, provided they all come at once I'm shipping them immediately. I PO'd one of each bike, one of each extra prospect, and the set of alternate faces (so basically, each PO they had lol).

    These were one of the first 3p things I ever really learned about when I first got into collecting, and I've always wanted them since then, so it's great to be able to get them.

    I had to ship mine because of the time limit and got it in recently. Had Planet X's Ismenios and the expansion kit ordered. The kit was in stock then, but Ismenios just dropped yesterday. So he's sitting in a new PoL while I have the kit here. Got a notice today MakeToys Cupola and Iron Will are dropping soon. I just ordered them from SirToys this weekend, though, to pad out the shipping for another item.

    i only got a bike and the black prospect.

    other than the red bike the others seem to have a decent stock so if i like what i get i may get a spectre or another regular bike.

    I considered getting a second of the regular orange bike to utilize the extra faces a bit more, but I think the three individually will make a good enough little biker gang (which yes, I will be displaying with my main transformers collection. Still trying to decide whether they should be Autobots, Decepticons, Quintessons employed Mercs, or Space Pirates. Currently leaning on the Quint Mercs).
