    I also ordered mine June 1st. I got charged two days ago so I am assuming it's shipped, or will this week.

    Humorously enough I ordered the Grimlock/Mirage set May 11th, but there's no movement on that one yet.

    Just got charged for my set and I ordered easily within the first hour they were up. I know people who've already got their set that ordered after me. There's really no rhyme or reason to how Amazon fulfills their orders based on a couple of friends that have worked in their fulfillment center.

    Got a charge on my card for this set, but they're still listed as a September 23rd delivery, so I expect the charge to drop in a few days.

    Got mine about a half hour ago! (That I literally placed an order for on Friday) I was planning on getting rid of Skywarp, but I think he looks great. So he’ll stay until a proper combining Magnaboss comes along.

    Nice, mine arrives this afternoon! What a great surprise.

    Also, I'll be putting the bird thingie figure immediately up in my sales thread the moment it arrives; so if anyone wants it, first come first serve!

    My set's arriving this Thursday. It's a surprise all right but not a bad one. Wonder if this means the Mirage and Grimlock set will arrive just as soon too?

    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.

    Got my set delivered from Amazon.

    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. :(
