    Like I said, he seems like a genuinely pretty cool individual who has as much passion for this stuff as us fans.

    Thanks for asking him, but I'm not really reassured. It's not just the forearm that was wrong and the problem has persisted to the final packaging phase. We shall see.

    Well I did what I can do. I guess you’ll have to wait till we get them in hand.

    Let's just blame Mattel, they probably are forcing that factory to work overtime to meet up with their own demands, so naturally this affects Super 7's use of said factory.

    You got that right. Try to buy a used car or a Nintendo 3ds. I didn't think it was possible to see inflation happening in real time.

    That's no joke. Same thing almost killed me ten years ago.

    Packaged Tygra is on display at PowerCon with a sign written in marker: "Not final sample" "Incorrect forearm". Good news. But what about the incorrect bicep?

    Also, Mumm-Ra has swapped forearms, apparently.

    Also Part 2: They don't have Packaged Cheetara on display? She wasn't in ToyBro's video, anyway. Probably due to the negative feedback which will NOT be fixed, because that wave is on the water.

    well, since the last update it looks like wave 4 has been delayed and will now be sent out after wave 2. This is a huge delay as wave 4 was originally supposed to leave the factory this month. At this point, I really do believe we tcats fans are getting screwed over for the tmnt fans.

    We should hopefully have wave 3 in hand between Halloween and thanksgiving. We should have wave 2 in hand Feb 2022, and wave 4 in hand Mar 2022. But I’m sure these will get delayed again. Sigh.

    Well Wave 3 of Thundercats at least left the factory so hopefully those will start going out soon.

    They had actually left the factory before Aug 23rd. We could technically get them at any point now, but Halloween to thanksgiving is probably a safer window.

    They emailed me 6 times for each figure I had on pre-order. I had to check to make sure I had only one of each on pre-order they e-mailed me so much.

    I only have Monkian and Linxo ordered for wave 4, and Linxo is with Dorkside.

    I got the same email for mumm-ra; moved to q1 of next year. I have monstar on PO as well so I wonder if that will get delayed too at some point. Or if I'm lucky they'll ship around the same time.

    With all the different waves and toy lines they have announced, if the factory is screwing them on something as simple as some cosmetic updates, I can't imagine how they expect to deliver quality products if they don't switch factory (and from what I remember they had already switched from another factory).

    at least they are sending out the other 3 figures this time, instead of delaying the whole wave for just Cheetara (like they delayed all of wave 2 for just mumm-ra qa issues). I guess they figured they better eat the extra shipping cost on wave 3 so they can at least get some tcats into our hands this year.

    But jfc s7, this is beyond ridiculous. We already must be patient af to be your customers, but this is like medico/mafex level patience now. At this point I’d rather get a messed up toy now and a repair pack 6 months later then to keep kicking this can down the road. And the fact that they announced this the same fucking day they started the wave 6 preorder for tmnt is like a kick in the nuts. Tcats line was announced way ahead of tmnt originally, but now tcats is 2+ waves behind tmnt (which is 1-2 years behind in s7 terms). Damn.

    In case anyone hasn't thought through the implications of this delay, if you have a pre-order for the set of 4 figures with a place like BBTS that charges when they ship, you might not get Jaga, Slithe, or Cracker until Cheetara is available. Switch your orders to the single figures to avoid this potential problem before supplies run out.

    Problems like this can happen with any factory. I guess Brian will attempt to explain what happened in this particular case. My biggest worry with them is that they are simply biting off more than they can chew and they have too few people spending too little time scrutinizing figures and making sure that they get them right the first time. I also worry that the people they have are just not the keenest eyes to have on hand, regardless of workload -- even if they had nothing else to do, they would probably still allow issues to slip by.
