_____________________________________________14. TFC Toys Uranos Update!TFC Toys - Falcon & Harrier Delayed!
Unfortunate news that TFC's final 2 Uranos figures are now delayed to May/June. We're still excited to see the final full color version of Uranos, but disappointed that we'll have to wait!

We will start processing the remaining orders in the next 1-2 days, be sure to order this guy if you are considering, TFC says there will be no more stock released, and it's doubtful there will be another run, making Uranos much less common than Hercules!
