    so got my shipping notification for Doubledealer (Told myself I wasn’t getting it, I lied) courtesy of the fine people over at comics and cocktails so should have that midweek I reckon.

    Seeing all these ER seeker two packs landing and mine hasn’t moved on from “processing” over at ID Toys. Anyone still waiting on theirs from ID?

    Having that massive consignment landing the same week as their Bargain Siege restocks won't have been any help either!

    Exactly the same thing happened to mine when I picked it out of a box the other day. All of the finer pieces of plastic have basically disintegrated.

    Saying that though, I did buy it broken/fractured already but it seems to have exploded since then.

    My phone camera is making this look better than it actually is, I think.

    It's those annoying black bits on the hood... I think I might have a spare, unopened Exhaust to sell once he's no longer prevalent lol

    So, according to a guy who supposedly works at Target, Earthrise wave 4 has been cancelled and split up into exclusives because CVD-19 delayed waves 2 and 3 but they still want Kingdom to begin early next year. I have high hopes on the availability of these as these would probably have already been produced in the same numbers as retail products. Supposedly Runabout and possibly Thrust are Target.

    If that's true they couldn't piss people off quicker. Certainly I've never seen as packed a recent release schedule. The stores will have to discount them like mad eventually, and unless it's sorted beforehand, might not even touch later releases as a result.

    If it's true we'll hopefully just get them as ordinary releases here. I'm thinking our discount stores will be flooded with them eventually if it happens in America.

    Once again buddy I might be interested in that extra copy of Exhaust, need more mercenaries because there aren’t as many as I thought there was going to be based on how much Warden was talking about the new faction.

    Hmm, Hasbro gaming Exclusives as a way to wrap up Earthrise in a POTP-ish way due to Pandemic Delays sounds pretty damned feasible, and as a Wave 4 Deluxe it seems very possible he might be Repacked for Wave 1 of Kingdom, yeah?

    They are shutting the physical shop tomorrow according to the website so more than likely tomorrow will be shipping day.

    Sounds very plausible and makes sense for the netflix new tools specially soundwave, my thought is wave 4 deluxes was meant to be bee and elita who were shifted to netflix and bluestreak and ratchet who may be another 2 pack.

    Runabout listed on target as e41!!!

    I think that's most likely due to them attending their Annual Hasbro UK meeting, where they're hoping to find out Whatta gwan ahn re:the new exclusives including the Quint Pit set.

    If @Q Prime's source is on the money hopefully that means there'll be plenty of stock to find it's own UK Fan Channels (barring the Amazon sets). FINGS CROSSED!
