    Yay!!!!!!! Apparently I am one of the lucky ones. Absolutely love this figure, I have no major complaints other than minor nitpicks, but overall an awesome figure. imageedit_4_3877199261.jpg

    The only thing I do want to mention is the Dark energon attachment is totally not the one on the box, but besides that, she's pretty good. 20210304_142337.jpg

    I also had ontrac and apparently they are shady and sketchy as fuck. I looked up reviews and more into the company and they have like a 95% fail rate on deliveries so we just got really lucky.

    Thankfully they seem to be pulling through for us this time. The dark energon stuff makes zero sense to me with this figure, so I don't mind the slashes not being purple. If anything they should be blue to represent energon.

    Agreed, I don't understand why they didn't even paint them at all. At the very least they should have had some sort of outline color on them and I REALLY do not understand why they changed it last minute and made it nothing as it is straight up false advertising.

    So mine got canceled by Walmart due to "high demand". I literally ordered within seconds of it going up. F**k Walmart. They've canceled almost every single pre-order I've had with them.

    Anyone happen to have an extra one they're willing to sell?

    I wish that Arcee was more in scale with the toyline. I think she is taller than the FE version?

    Arcee is definitely the one RED figure I want out of the bunch. I was kicking myself about not preordering but it looks like a lot of others have had cancellations so I'm not too worried about it. Hopefully it pops up for retail eventually.

    I had a hard time finding the first wave in the first week or so but then after that, the availability seemed to even out if I recall. My Walmart JUST stocked wave 1 the other week for the first time despite having the tag up for over 6 weeks.

    Hopefully we can get them soon.:)

    Hasbro does that from time to time. Idk if its just a prototype change, a miscomunication with the factory or what. Honestly the paint on the entire thing could be better, which again is typical for Hasbro. They got some colors wrong and they didn't even paint her blades at all. The mold is fantastic, but a custom paint job could really spruce it up.

    I was so turned off by all the early negative reviews that I canceled my preorders for Wave 1. I even found them in hand at a Walmart and passed. But this evening I found another set of Wave 1 and I thought, what the hell.

    Honest to Primus, my expectations were so low that after opening them up I really dig them! Accepting them for what they are (and also what they aren’t, ie likely what the Super 7 figures will be) these are pretty fun.

    If nothing else, Prime and Megs can battle it out with their energy weapons up on a bookshelf somewhere.

    Mine made an almost snapping sound when going backward. These really are subpar compared to Marvel Legends. Good idea, poor execution.

    I think it should have been a diaphragm ball joint instead, without that random chest removal gimmick. I also would have liked double-jointed knees and elbows. Especially for a character like Arcee who's known for her fighting skills.

    Agree. And the head lacks even moderate range of motion. I also had to use Future polish on her knee / lower leg swivel. They were so loose the legs could spin on their own. And every single other joint was frozen.

    Yeah, they can't seem to get that head and neck ball system right anywhere outside GI Joe and Star Wars. I don't mind frozen joints because it means they stay tight, but the loose knee swivels are definitely annoying.

    Based on leaked listings, I think Knockout and Optimus Primal, but we'll probably find out for sure next month.
