I did too, and had forgotten that I had ordered him.
Got an email for the Tricranius pack and the Sideswipe/Skywarp pack.
Sideswipe and Birdie Skywarp shipping soon
Yep, just got the email
SS Grindor is up
Transformers Studio Series Leader Class Grindor and Ravage – Hasbro Pulse
Thanks for your order on HasbroPulse.com!
Remember that awesome thing you pre-ordered from us? (See below as a helpful reminder.)
F1208 Transformers Generations War for Cybertron: Kingdom Battle Across Time Collection Deluxe WFC-K42 Sideswipe & Maximal Skywarp
Well, good news! It's ready to ship earlier than expected!
If you missed the Dracula crossover on Target, it's on the PULSE now...Blah! Blah!
I can't believe Pulse has gotten the Beast two packs before Amazon did.
At this rate I'm running out of preorders to look forward to! Well done Pulse!
I wonder if Pulse will have Road Rage in?
I think She is a REDCARD exclusive, so probably not. But we can hope. Corrected gender and confirmed REDCARD, so nope!
Doubtful. Redcard exclusive.
Tricranius and Sideswipe/Skywarp are both prepping to ship!
Now I will find out whether Pulse actually allows me to buy the four Tricranius packs I was able to place orders for or not.
But Skyswipe and Sidewarp are what I'm really excited about here!
Grabbed Draculos too because he's heckin' nice looking.
I'll recommend Grindor for those who aren't sure about him. Incredibly high parts count and looks great in both modes. But be prepared to do some shaving surgery on some of his tabs in order to improve the fit of panels in his helicopter mode. I was having a hell of a time getting him into a gapless state until I did so. Ultimately I had to shave the smaller of the two tabs that join the halves of his pontoons together (on both sides) as well as the tabs that connect the perpendicular unfolding arm panels that become the sides of the helicopter and connect onto the pontoon\arm section. They were oversized enough that they could not connect together and would pop back out as soon as I took my hand away. After solving that, I got him looking good:
If you cannot get the roof panels in front of the rotor mast to stay together, the issue is that you don't have his hip\waist parts oriented correctly underneath. This will cause the radar dome inside to push up and shove the panels apart. If this happens, open him up and try again; the hip parts need to be as far downward as they can be without it becoming impossible to tab the tail section together. Then the radar dome will sit that last 1mm lower and stay out of the way. Good luck! He's fiddly as fuck but I love him.
Just got those emails as well! Woo! Can't wait to mess with those blast effects!
How many people only got Tricranius for the blast effects? Raises hand.
Same. Loving this stuff coming ahead of schedule.
Yep. In terms of Pulse I've got 86 Starscream which isn't due till next year and Draculus which is November.
I suppose it's possible the latter ships earlier as these could be conservative estimates due to current distribution issues in the US.
After that it's all Target (Road Rage) and Amazon (W4 Kingdom).
That was my main reason when I preordered him, but now that I have since gotten the fossilizers, I can't wait for this guy to come in!
