That's a good bio. Fairly concurrent with G1 cartoon season 3 from what I understand.

Can't wait. This and Electro Ligier are going to be first crazy-expensive Japan-exclusive figures. And here's hoping Ghost Starscream preorders actually get filled.

Hm. I got the email from BBTS for my Electro Disruptor Ligier, but not for my Strafe. I wonder what's up?

Uh, I realize that. The poster I quoted stated that he just got an email from BBTS telling him that Strafe was in-stock. As I also have a pre-order for that item, from that seller, I was curious why I didn't receive the same email.

So, I've currently got Strafe on pre-order at BBTS, for $109.99. How is Robot Kingdom's shipping? Strafe's shipping at BBTS should be negligible since he's just going into my Pile Of Loot. Will it cost me less than $20 to ship from Robot Kingdom? Is it worth losing out on the convenience of Pile of Loot?

robotkingdom comes out to be 89.90 + 10.35 shipping = 100.25, so I guess its a little bit cheaper. While Tfsource is 99.95 + 9.72 shipping = 109.67, so its a 32 cents cheaper. :-?

I've ordered from RK and their CS is good, though I haven't had to address any issues yet(though I may cancel my MP-01B pre-order and go elsewhere as I want to get the e-Hobby manga so I'll see how good their CS is for sure). Their service is prompt, gave me shipping info via e-mail with tracking info too. Their product packaging isn't fancy but it works. My orders had newspaper and styrofoam boards as the padding and everything I ordered was in tip-top shape.

How fast does RK's package usually arrive in the States after it ships? I'm tempted to order some stuff from them bc they have TFs that are already out of stock elsewhere.

I'm not sure how fast the shipping would be for a U.S. destination but my package arrived within a business week of its shipment notice. Since I live on the East Coast, I think that's pretty fast delivery from Asia.

Arthur Wen has again shared his haul on the Gentei Strafe at Actoys, with both robot and alternate modes. As we all know that Strafe is a repaint version of universe/henkei Cyclonus, an image of both toys together also available.

I ordered DIA Commander from RK. Packing was pretty good but the shipping speed was great. Made it from HK to my house in GA in 4 business days.
