    Anyone else get an email from Amazon UK overnight? It confirmed the release date for Jackpot has been revised from March 22 to Dec 21.

    On the subject of Amazon UK, did Tigatron and Terrorsaur ever make an appearance on the UK site? I kept my order for RR&P with the US site because it worked out around £1 cheaper than the UK price and ordered Jackpot from the UK with them no problem, but never saw either of the other two Golden Disk sets on the UK site.

    I cracked & ordered Draculus & Road Rage last night. I'm a massive creature feature fan, so I'm surprised it took me this long to go in for Drac. I'm hoping that if it sells well we might see my personal favourite the Creature From The Black Lagoon make an appearance somewhere down the line. And besides it's almost Halloween!

    Terrasaur looks bizarre in beast mode, awesome in robot mode. I want him, yeeesssss.

    Hmmm. Idt is sold out and pulse won't let payment go through. That's a bugger.


    Two Terry's? If you want to move one on, I'd happily take him? Gonna be tomorrow evening now before i get chance to try again and i fear he'll be sold out.

    I ordered mine around 7 as I was busy consoling a friend who's relationship is in tatters, saw a tweet pop up in my notifications from @incapable hulk so had to politely excuse myself for a minute or two to add Terry to my basket! (Yes I also got my confirmation after 8:30)

    I'd already added Chromia earlier in the afternoon as I saw a post on FB saying they'd been put up. So snagged free shipping and she's already been charged to my card so I guess is in stock and hopefully on her way soon.
    She's in the G1 cartoon.... so doesn't break my rules lol

    Yes I think so, although at this point I'm not sure why you'd order from them other than loyalty / supporting local.
    There prices are considerably more than Pulse (unsure on Amazon) and if you bundled them to get free shipping you're screwed if 1 is delayed.
    I had to wait 6 months for my SS86 Jazz as I ordered him with Scourge and I paid fully upfront. I was literally the last pre-order to receive my Scourge for whatever reason so since then I've bene weary of giving them my cash.

    Pulse don't charge upfront, only when in stock or was it just spewing your details?

    Sounds like the site. Weird though, just ordered him, Edgelord Tigatron and Jackpot with no problems. Maybe the cardholder name is auto filling and is different to how presented on the card itself?

    Do you have links for the Amazon UK listings? I can’t find them.

    That is true regarding IDT but I signed up to Moona so I can get £5 off each and I can do it in a way where I don’t have to pay shipping as well. This would have been the cheapest option for me (just).

    You probably have, but have you seen the changes to Moona's T's and C's?
    Makes it pretty much a no no for me now. It was bad enough when they made it 1 order per day!

    Christ, I hope Pulse review their release dates for Jackpot and Terrorsaur too. March seems a bit...much?

    Sorry to say I've already cancelled the duplicate order.

    Oooh no! Anything that you can highlight? Sorry asking a lot of questions. Didn't get much sleep and have to work as well. Limited brain capacity.

    I think they have changed how often you have to pay for the service now.
    I believe doubled the price if not more from what I read in a FB group.

    Thanks! Ahhhh the price did double? I thought it might have but I couldn't remember. Hmmm yes makes it more difficult to be viable.

    Annnnddd gone... Ah well. Were these guys on the Ever Given or something? I absolutely LOVE how a subsidiary of Hasbro has no idea what's coming until suddenly POW! there it is.

    OK, if this was a COSPLAY at TFNation and funky transformation was achieved by the cosplayer leaning forward and tucking their hands by their hips: AWESOME.
    On a plastic toy.... it's a guy COSPLAYING as a Pterosaur! Come on! Glad a lot of you guys are loving it.

    He was so utterly crucial to the Siege story line though...! (Wasn't he?) Maybe people are customising him into a statue?

    OK, that makes Arcee look INCREDIBLY sexy which means I probably have some issues to work out.

    Alright hear me out: Eva Green voices Arcee in Rise of the Beasts... That would cause me so much confusion!
