    It only depends from when you paid it. If you paid it very lately, it's very probable you lost the possibility to get in the first run, so now they have the first restock, you'll have the famous email ;)  But did you mean robotkingdom, right ?

    Oof, my Thundershred and City Commander armor came in stock at BBTS, so I guess I will be shipping my POL with Exgraver today! Big order, those three items plus the Protector armor and two Futurama t-shirts. The third party stuff along with the SDCC exclusives killed me in the past couple of weeks! Can't wait to open Exgraver!

    I could live on pasta for the rest of my life, even if I was rich. You say that like it's a bad thing.

    Now I have Heavylabour ordered, my next thought is, what colours is it? The only colour images I think we have had are the early computer renderings. I hope they are not accurate. They had Heavylabour's buttplate, ie Hercules' crotchplate, in black plastic. I do not know of any iteration of G1 Devastator with a black crotchplate, it is almost always Green, and was purple in IDW.

    Please TFC, make it Green plastic, I really don't want to have to paint it green and have paint chipping off it every time I transform Long Haul or move Devastator's leg...

    Especially if you can't afford any sauce to go with it. I have been that poor, it really gives you perspective on the 'value' of a $100 voyager sized deluxe toy.

    Speaking as an Italian who eats pasta almost everyday I can say. Ya I can live off pasta every day. Every meal of every day? Totally different thing, although there are sooo many different types of pasta

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm pasta.

    Well, now that, that would push my limits of my tolerance. I don't think I'd even be able to finish a meal.

    Speaking of which, just ate spaghetti for lunch. Yum.

    If you can't afford sauce, you're doing something horribly, horribly wrong.

    I think a couple are, I haven't seen the robot nor waist modes on a display background before, & definitely hadn't seen the vehicle mode on it's own. But the combined mode was shown at a Toy Show some time ago.

    Might was well post the pics for the thread:

    [​IMG]

    Took me to the original post, yesterday, too, when I clicked it. But I wasn't sure then if it had been corrected or if you were just having problems, so I didn't post about it.

    I have to agree. Normally, I prefer complexity to my TFs (RotF got a bit ridiculous, even to my standards, & I enjoy complex engineering), but a combiner has other considerations. It must be solid, stable, & as light as the components can be made, & extra moving parts can detract from all of those. But, if it can be done in a way that doesn't impact Devastator, I wouldn't mind more complex transformations... But yeah, an hour to combine them would be too long.

    There's a whole thread. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-sightings/85669-illinois-transformers-sightings.html Be aware it's mostly dominated by the Chicagoians, & they discuss more than just sightings.

    But they are fairly friendly & sometimes quite helpful.

    Nah, you just missed them, that's all. Those pics were from the first official teaser (we got wind of him prior to that. That's where that pic of Heavy Labor amongst dirty Chinese take-out trays came from).

    Hmm...they started with 1000 units...will be interesting to see if they adjust the numbers as time goes by like they did with Scavenger...
