However when I tracked it, it still says Shipment information sent to FedEx... so I don't even know if they actually shipped it out yet. =/


Well FedEx tracking updated and I'm supposed to receive it Wednesday!

for those that put in their order on 7/19, did anyone receive their shipped notice yet? I put in a large order on that day then received an email the day after saying that they can't process my order unless I verify that it was actually me ordering which I did. They told me they will put the order through but I haven't receive any shipped email from HTS yet. I hope they don't wind up cancelling my order...

Order will be here on the 28th...Hiss Tank, Bruticus & both Jinx figures...not really crazy about the aesthetics of this Bruticus mold, but begars can't be choosers, especially with this being (hopefully) the first of many gestalts that Hasbro will be releasing, I haven't had time to check up on HTS, but have they restocked, would love to hear more of the fellow TF community being able to pick these up.

Just got the shipped email from HST right after I posted here. Expected delivery on 7/28. I guess it would be too much to hope that HTS have packed the items securely to prevent damage during transit. Their track record isn't so good for my past shipments....

Just got my rust in peace cliffjumper from the delivery guy... The box was all dinged up, I was worried about how hts would package it, but i opened the box and there isn't that much protection inside but the toy itself is safe! And that's all that matters Thank god! :BOWDOWN: hope everyone gets theirs in a timely manner and that their toy(s) are in great condition! :michaelbay:

I got my stuff today, they switched from those crap Airbags to brown paper packing material.
All my stuff was flawless. Not even creases on the corners.

i just received my sdcc cliffjumper and the shipping box looks great but my cliffjumper box is all f'd up. i mean, it looks like they gave me a damaged cliffjumper box and shipped it out to me. i'm telling you the shipping box looks more beautiful than the actual toy box. balls, cybertronian balls.

Nope, as of tomorrow I will have those 4 as well.

You can also add another version of Zombie Cliffjumper when the first editions return to TRU. How or if the figure is different than the SDCC one I have no idea.

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Well I got my Bruticus, but not without some scare.

Bad news, HTS needs to seal boxes better... it came looking like this, giving me a heart attack:

Good news, everything seems to be fine... box seems to be in good shape:

What you should do is up to you. I'm not a MISB/perfect box stickler (I don't sell my toys EVER and I store boxes in a closet), but if you're not like me, you might have a chat with Hasbro about it or see about selling it and using the money to acquire one in better condition on the secondary market (ebay etc.).

I broke down and got SDCC Bruticus from ebay. I couldn't resist and I'm glad I did. It looks pretty awesome in hand and after playing with the configuration of Brawl a bit in leg mode (other than just transforming the foot part correctly as Optibotimus showed in his review) and doing a few tweaks to where the weapons were stored and some bits on the arms were aligned, he looks pretty sweet. I can't wait to get all the other repaints so I can do some real Scramble City stuff with him/them, though the SDCC colors are all pretty drab, so I don't know how they'll look combined with parts from other versions.

Received my shipment today, everything survived the trip with only minor dings and dents. I have another shipment coming, hope that one fares as well or better.

Damn, you made out like a bandit. Both CJ and Bruticus listing have been pulled off HTS.
