    A big sale may not happen this year since they've now got their clearance section on the site.

    Shard, Sandstorm, and Chromia all shipped, but my hot streak of overnight shipping from Pulse has been broken - they're all being shipped by DHL, who's the worst, which means I won't have them until...next week at best

    All good things come to an end, I suppose :lol

    It's funny to see people dunking on DHL, they usually deliver my Amazon Japan purchases and they've always seemed lightning fast to me.

    When it comes to overseas purchases, I agree they're super fast. But when it comes to purchases inside the US, they are ridiculously slow for some reason. At least that's been my experience.

    I got my first box of new Legacy today: Sandstorm, Gears, Shard, and Silverbolt. In hand Sandstorm is unquestionably a leader figure, though some of the design choices are still a little weird. The car mode's tilt is so odd! I'd assumed there was a mistransformation in the first in-hand pics since it didn't look nearly as bad in the official shots, but now I think those camera angles were designed to minimize the effect. Not a deal breaker at all, the design is still good, just weird.

    Also my chest doesn't tab in right, but I'll need more time to decide if that's something I want to try to correct or leave alone. Probably the latter, shaving down tabs is usually more trouble than it's worth.

    The chest on my Sandstorm is the same way. I also saw a review on it and theirs was also the same.

    I know they're just toys and I can be patient but damn, going from FedEx where I would receive the product shipped email from Hasbro and get my item in hand at most 2 days later... To DHL where I received my shipping email three days ago in my ETA is still 7 more days... what a kick in the nuts.

    It's because they got rid of a lot of their US employees I believe and focusing on the international side.

    Yeah, DHL International and DHL Domestic couldn't be more different. DHL International gets me packages from Japan in two days without fail. Contrast that with DHL Domestic (or DHL Surepost) who regularly takes upwards of two weeks to deliver to me.
