Release Question

Postby shockblast2 » Wed Nov 06, 2013 10:42 am

Weapon: Energon Crossbow
So, what is up with the release of Generations Legends Cosmos and Swerve? We are getting Rhinox and Doubledealer a month early, so why have we been jipped so far on Cosmos and Swerve, when they were supposed to be released last month? There are not even preorders for these guys at this point. Did Hasbro scrap the Legends line already or what?

Problems with the Chinese labor force?
I just completed after 30 years, G1 Season1 and 2 Decepticons!
My Transformers purchasing habits
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)

Not all of them yet. Masterpiece and Go! is made in Viet Nam but the others are still made in China >:oP

My TG-23 and TG-24 (the latest Tomy release before the Orion and Megatronus set) is still made in China. So maybe you should not "reword" your shoot from the hip, blanket over generalization of the entire franchise.

Motto: "The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance."
Weapon: Dual Bladed Sword
Just because an item is "late" doesn't mean it's canceled, you silly boys. Something tells me they'll released alongside the next set of Deluxes (Waspinator, Goldfire, Skids and Dreadwing), I'm estimating within the holiday shopping season. Just have a little more patience before putting on the doom thinker hat :)
"I have Autism and I'm proud of it!" - Myself

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Grimlock, Hightower & Wedge
3) Energon Sledge, Duststorm, Bonecrusher & Wideload
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Expect me in the States by August 17th ;)

Whatever. Either way, I think your blanket over-generalization that the problem is "the Chinese workforce" is baseless. Has/Tak juggles their release schedule all the time, and sometimes figures just disappear.

Is this like a personal crusade for you? What's your problem?
