    If you are willing to pay a little more, there's a seller on ebay that has him in stock in the US. I just ordered one

    Do you think that means Amazon pre-orders might be shipping soon?

    Possibly. I've ordered from this guy before... he seems to be a Hasbro retailer that arranges his own shipping from oversea, rather than wait for the Hasbro boat to arrive from Vietnam. He usually gets the new stuff weeks before regular retailers and in pretty good quantity. But, yeah... if Skylynx is already stateside, he should be everywhere soon

    A Pitney Bowes location locally has had my item for a week because of Coronavirus?

    I’ve bought other items shipped from China lately but this is the only one that has traveled all the way to ATL and then just sat for a week.

    I bought Starscream in a Walmart yesterday (fresh from the Netflix stocker). The only tiedown in it is a band across the knees. hope that helps.

    Was worried the Seeker 2pk was the Quintessa map piece itself and not the aux piece.

    Also, anyone got an Optimus Map Piece they're willing to part with? I need my complete conspiracy map

    Hey HasTak, if you wanna give us an upgrade on the old generations Cyclonus mold, much like the one you gave Classics Starscream, I'd be TOTALLY cool with that.....

    I still have not opened my Earthrise Starscream, but after closer inspection there is a plastic tie down band by his knees but it is not intact. The band has been cut or broke without the package being opened some how if that is even possible? How strong are these tie down bands and it is possible for them to just snap during transit?

    I paired Earthrise Optimus with Orion Pax's Energon Axe, but I've been trying to figure out a means of weapon storage along with his rifle. Well, I figured out something last night:

    I really like this look with the weapons slung on his back, like Link or Geralt. The trick is that there's a notched curve on the axe that acts as a 5MM port.

    I ordered my Nonnef upgrade kit for Earthrise Prime in all blue today. I guess they are saying they will be shipping these in or around June 5th.

    Rumors have it that a yellow Cliffjumper is going to be released. Is he Bumblebee? Is he Hubcap? Nobody knows for sure!
