    Lots of people are there tonight for meeting friends for drinks etc. I'd be there for dinner with the TMUK team if I was well enough to leave the house and stay on my feet. Alas.....

    Ah, I guess a peer-to-peer pick up rather than a trader buy then.

    And from Kapow's FB:

    Not sure exactly what that auspices for our Springer notifications but I'm sticking with cautious optimism for now.

    I'd imagine that they got those out the door before sending the message, especially as they've been assigned Royal Mail tracking numbers...

    I checked the tracking number from my Kapow email regarding springer and it basically says ‘The sender has advised us they're preparing your item. More information will be available when we receive it.’ I assume that means it hasn’t been posted yet and will be picked up once the TFN weekend is done.

    Mine isn't "Live" yet either. With the announcement of the stock take on FB as well as TFN, if they are in "early"(-er than the stated rescheduling), I wouldn't expect 'em to actually go out until Monday at the soonest. I'm still not fully expecting that, and more suspect it's prep for a very high demand item with a lot of pre-orders to get posted out.
    I'll gladly eat my words if they go live tomorrow though.

    Me neither, mine's in with Thundercracker.... who I thought they'd had for a bit.

    But I imagine other things had priority last thing Thursday.

    If you want to brave the crowds of the West End you can find Siege Thundercracker at Forbidden Planet on Shaftesbury Avenue.

    Red Alert is there too.

    My working hypothesis at this time is Team Kapow unexpectedly got some mixed Springer/'Cracker boxes among the solid 'Cracker cases they were expecting. Hence the odd smattering of dispatches.

    EDIT

    IDT's Springers at TFN are US ones.
