    Likely based on if the distribution center that will fulfill your order actually got the stock.

    Mine arrived today.
    And while I am mostly in this for Skywarp, Sideswipe will be staying as well.

    Sideswipe is superb. I didn't own any of the Siege Sideswipe mold figures prior to this, and was really torn on "replacing" my Universe 2.0 figures.

    I love every plastic and paint color used here, except maybe the blue windows (although I get that was to match Sunstreaker). Transformation is satisfying. Head sculpt is superb.

    Is there any way to tab in his chest / abdomen? It sits well enough in place, but a secure connection would be nice.

    So, a heads up for anyone that got charged but their deliver date still says the 28th of this month: my date never updated until it actually shipped today and it'll be arriving tomorrow. Surprisingly it actually will arrive tomorrow since it's coming from the Tampa distro center. :lol  Anyway, keep an eye on your shipping notices. You may end up with this sooner than you think.

    Saw that I can order it now via Amazon.de,so canceled my Amazon.com order and placed it locally, cos it's cheaper. Just the release is a few months later, but that's fine, got a lot of stuff coming my way right now.

    BTW, it's in a box with air pillows and the original SIOC box.

    Got mine today as well. Nice of Amazon to get me something on time for once. Although they did deliver it to my neighbor first!

    The siege version has the same issue with the waist/ midsection. I have been meaning to get to the mushroom peg to see if it's possible to shave it down so it pegs in more securely. I was hoping they would have fixed it on the kingdom toy but I should have mine by next week to check.

    Mine showed up today out if the blue. The last time I looked at my orders, Thursday or Friday, it still said November. It’s a nice surprise but kind of shitty since I had this set worked into the November budget and got no notice it was going to be two months early.

    Also, did they really go to all the trouble of retooling this mold and STILL not fix the abdomen panel not tabbing into place? This one is somehow even worse than my Siege Sideswipe, which at least tabs a little bit.

    Considering the abdomen isn’t fixed and I have no interest in the bird I might just use this for trade fodder. :(

    While Amazon is cheaper than my Pulse preorder I had to make the choice to cancel one so I canceled Amazon. I haven't had the bad luck others have had with them but doing an authorization hold for several days on an order that was placed after the first few minutes it went live while those that ordered just a few.days ago already have theirs doesn't feel me with confidence. Plus I want Pulse do keep doing their thing with partner exclusives.
