    Didn't realise they took that much. Ouch. I've always used Paypal for the convenience and for the added protection.

    Cheers for the offer. @MyTea Boc has me sorted with another offer of the same so between that and Amazon, I have two now so one of those should hopefully make it (first time I've done a safety order).

    I'm still so excited that they made Tigatron a Voyager and not just a Cheetor repaint. It really shows that they're paying attention to customers needs and show accuracy. If that means they need to do an orange repaint and a black repaint repaint Cheetor, I'm okay with that.

    I'm starting to think the 'Tigatron is exclusive to Amazon' rumour was someone mistaking the Golden Disk version for the mainline one.

    In fact, I could absolutely see that being the case. Miscommunication for the win.

    Well in that case, I can order tigatron and Sercei from SAF. As was my original plan with those two.

    I'm so confused right now about what is happening.


    Just in general.

    We watched ROTF last night, that made more sense than Hasbro's release information.

    Hard agree on this. The bigger figure will let them have the little/big brother vibe going on.

    Sales situation in which I'd like opinions, please :) 

    I've listed a few very big-hitter macross items recently and got a chap from overseas interested. But they are asking if I can ship the items to a friend of theirs within the UK, and then that person will ship them to them [I have mentioned that if applicable I will list full items price on a customs form, hence why they don't want the bots straight from me].

    I've made clear that I'd only be liable for shipping within the UK, and they're ok with that.

    They also vouch for their friend--and once again, I'm only liable for the item from my address to their friend's address.

    On one hand, it's pretty much like a forwarding/PO box [I know folks do this in the US all the time], but I haven't done one of these for a long, long time where I was on the sending end. And we're not talking 20 quid worth of figures.

    Thoughts? My only concern is the logistics on if something goes awry on the second leg of the journey that I'm not responsible for.

    Absolutely could be the case but from the rumour source that would seem to also be accidentally stuffing one UK Retailer to boot?

    Hey all! Been a minute. Again. I really do need to make time to visit the thread more often, but real life™️ just keeps getting in the way.

    I've spent my days applying to every job under the sun, on top of dealing with a whole host of (minor!) health issues. If my body is treating me like this in my 20s, I don't think I'll make 50!

    I've also been ban-hammered from Ebay for a few days by almighty Hasbro, for listing some 3P stuff, even though I didn't use any brand-specific terminology! I've sold for years with no issues, so they may be cracking down on it. So that's good news too. :rolleyes: 

    In definitely entirely unrelated news, if anybody wants any of the following:

    Iron Factory Arcee (loose)
    Maketoys Meteor (loose)
    Justitoys WST Shackwave (sealed)
    Fanstoys FT-12T Grenadier (sealed)

    Shoot me a PM!

    I've not forgotten those Chromedome pics I promised either. I'll set some time aside for him shortly. But for right now? This guy is keeping me company.

    I guess we'll find out soon. Once Hasbro puts things up on Pulse, they usually appear on the usual retailers in a day or so. If Tigatron is scarce on those sites, we'll have an answer.

    I’m up for Tigatron, Waspy and Panthro….but I’m bored of dumping money for a wave en-masse, would so love to pick these things up in slow time.

    However, Hasbro UK are piss poor at telling us what is coming and when, distribution is shocking and the FOMO is strong….

    Just happened to notice that Vietnam has experienced its only major Covid outbreak during the past 2/3 months. Probably the reason wave 4 is disjointedly limping to market right now? I believe that is where they are made these days?

    They're up on Pulse, January 2022 release date for Tigatron, but only next month for Waspinator, and, uh... the week after next for Shadow Panther.

    Hmmm, SAF are also positing Jan 2022, if we see an Amazon UK listing go up with a sooner release date maybe it's actually an "Early Bird" Exclusive?

    Togatron is preordered, may see in person before he ships though.

    Still reckon I’ll get Tigatron before Sonner Toys ships my Rodimus Prime though!

    Preorders done. Sadly I just can't get excited about Shadow Panther, especially with the exclusive Ravage figure on the horizon. Which is probably just as well from a financial pov!

    Damn, those prices on the Hasbro Fortnite figures here are painful. Less accessories and things than the Jazwares stuff but £3 more expensive than those.

    Ordered Waspinator and Tigatron under seperate Pulse orders, just to avoid having to wait for the wasp to turn up.

    (And a Fortnite Sky & Ollie from SAF)
