    I still haven't gotten notification of my replacement Zetar being sent out yet, so don't feel alone.

    My cassettes have been showing as paid but unfulfilled for a week now and I live in Michigan, so I can't figure out their system. Hopefully they'll be sent out early next week.

    Some members received an email that it will ship for them next week. I didn't, so I called customer service and they confirmed that the order was sent to shipping today. Apparently, a tracking number was created and should ship on Monday. I looked it up on FedEx but the info hasn't been sent to them yet. Anyway, quick update for what it's worth.

    Got my cassettes today too. Have not been happy really with them or the G1 vintage ones from Walmart. They must just have people manually applying the stickers at the factory because they are not well done. Misaligned, creases, bubbles, etc. At least with the Walmart ones I was able to find a bunch and eventually find a pack with decent application, but with these ones from Pulse you are stuck with what you get. Wish they would have just sent a sticker sheet so we can apply them ourselves or had it done by machine so that they would be put on correctly...

    For anyone wondering what the difference is between the two releases are......

    upload_2019-9-20_23-4-55.png

    The Walmart 2 pack re-issue is on the right, and the 3 pack Hasbro exclusive is on the left. The plastic colors appear to be identical. From the front, the only difference I can see is that the Walmart version has silver painted eyes, while the Hasbro exclusive has unpainted eyes and a red dot painted on the forehead instead.

    On the back, the differences are more numerous:

    upload_2019-9-20_23-10-30.png

    Most noticeable is that the Walmart version has a richer, more solid indigo blue on the tape decals, while the Hasbro version's blue on the decal is more of a faded metallic. Mine seems to also have reversed the application on the tape window decal, although I'm not sure if that was intentional. Both product stamps have different print type on each version, and the Hasbro exclusive has one of the codes stamped into the plastic rather than printed. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the Walmart version has a slightly deeper gunmetal color to the diecast feet and elbow rivets. The chrome is also more thickly applied on the Walmart version - too much in my opinion. It makes the accessories super tight when they are put on to the point of damaging the finish. The Hasbro exclusive version's chrome is perfect though - the guns fit on the back securely but not too tight. My copy's head doesn't pop out straight, so he's always got a tilted look of confusion. I'm thinking that's just an issue with the spring inside and not a release wide defect. Hope all this helps!

    Hasbro Pulse is also known to ship items without an immediate email shipping notice until a few days after the fact. Sometimes even on the same day of delivery. That was what happened with my Ecto-Prime order. I had signed up for Fed Ex notifications and I got a notice from them and Pulse didn't e-mail me a shipping notice until 2 HOURS before the actual Fed Ex delivery.

    I didn't receive my notification for the Refraktor pack until days after it arrived. I'm hoping something like this is case with the Zetar they're sending me, because it says unfulfilled but really should have shipped by now.

    Why? Not saying you shouldn't be just wondering what's turned you off them :)

    I've been signed up with FedEx for many years now and haven't received any notice from them regarding the cassettes being shipped,so I'm just waiting patiently.

    Was surprised the cassettes showed up today, but very disappointed in how damaged the cardbacks are.

    Weird right, almost as if they were meant to be one giant set.

    Wow, sold out too.

    I got my shipping notification about a week ago, and FedEx has changed my estimated delivery date 3x so far.

    Yeah I had to look at probably a dozen plus EACH of Soundwave and each of the cassette packs at Walmart before I found OK versions of them. Passable at least. Of course that isn't really an option when you order through Pulse, so no surprise that I ended up with one with messed up stickers and no recourse.

    I completely forgot they were releasing those dino tapes and when I remembered yesterday afternoon, sold out. I see several sets on eBay for $90 a pop.

    Hasbro and their crap distribution strikes again. For a set of figures that haven't had a North American release before now,these should have been handled different. Sold out two days after they officially went on sale is ridiculous.

    They sold out during their preorder stage. Not during the went on sale. Theyve been sold out for about 2 3 weeks now.
