    Cheetor and Arcee just arrived, making this the single least painful experience I've ever had with a Walmart preorder. I wish the same was true for everyone else, but fingers crossed WM comes through eventually.

    Just a little update: The gun totally scales with Kingdom Cheetor and fits in his hand without modification :thumb

    Unfortunately, one of the blades for my Arcee has stress marks right out of the box so guess I won't be attaching that one to her ever. Also, why are the blade effects grey? It took me a minute to recognize what they were but it just seems weird that they weren't purple.

    Pics of the effect? And maybe if you take a hair-dryer to the blade for a few seconds, you can get rid of that stress mark.

    Effect pieces are at the bottom.

    Yeah, I dunno what happened with Arcee's effect pieces -- package photos show they were supposed to be cast in the same translucent purple as the giant cube she comes with, but clearly that changed somewhere along the way. Wonder why . . .

    Also, please enjoy this pic of a normal, everyday, nothing-to-see-here cheetah: 20210303_153600-1.jpg

    Got Arcee today and she's phenomenal. Really the only things I'd change would be to give her double jointed elbows and knees and make the dark gray parts black, but otherwise I love her. The head sculpt especially is extremely well-done and it's just so nice to finally have a Prime figure that's this show accurate. I can't wait for Knockout!

    I just got the email that my Cheetor and Arcee shipped! If you preordered then online, keep an eye on your inbox.

    Hmmmm.

    Starting to get concerned, they said that it shipped, but there has been no updates for two days, even though it says arriving tomorrow. Anyone else have this?

    Also, it is delivering from a delivery service I have never heard of before or even knew existed, so that doesn't display confidence either.

    *Update* so I checked out the company, and its incredibly shady and highly unreliable. Well shit, there's a good chance I won't be getting it now. When Walmart can't even get the preorders right, they use shady shipping companies outside of UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

    That's strange. Mine were shipped via FedEx. Not sure why they went with some no-name carrier for your package.

    Could be like my order where they used some random shady 3rd party company.

    At least mine says out for delivery now, but I really don't trust it, so time will tell.

    Yeah, lol mine got delivered by a random car driving through my neighborhood. Sketchy as hell but hey, at least I got her. Mine was OnTrac, I don't know how reliable they are.
