I have Prime, and while i did not order the Mirage/Impactor/Aragon set, the release date I've always seen was 10/15/19...??

Pretty sure they are talking about the individual release of those characters.

I noticed that Pulse has Impactor and Mirage as 10/1/19 availability. Amazon had 9/1. I'm guessing Pulse is correct and Amazon had the incorrect date. My Impactor still says it'll be delivered tomorrow, but I really doubt it. Don't even get me started on the Black Series Palpatine stuff with Amazon. :-x

Mine still says arriving tomorrow by 8pm, but hasn't actually shipped yet. I'm getting curious on what will actually arrive first this week or next, Mirage from Amazon, the SDCC Refracktor set from Pulse, the SDCC botbot set from Pulse or Zetar from Pulse next week. As long as they all arrive by Sept. 12th, I'll be a very happy b-day boy. Of course the flip side is if they arrive before Sept. 12, I still won't be able to enjoy them until then, so I guess no rush.

I'm in the same boat with Mirage and Impactor. Based on past experiences, I would guess Amazon has yet to update the listings to the new ship date. Of course, I'm happy to be wrong about that. :D

Mirage and Impactor haven't shipped yet and some people have gotten emails saying the figures are delayed. Thus far this year Amazon hasn't gotten anything in stock that wasn't first seen at retail.


Except for Voyager Thundercracker, they had him for pre-order due August 1st, received mine the 5th or 6th.

I just read somewhere that Nova Storm is canonically female :-D I don’t even know if that’s true but with no Slipstream (yet) I find this an invigorating little touch for the Seekers. There’s so many cool Seekers to expand upon now, more than they were before that is. I didn’t even know about Nacelle until recently now I’d really like to see that color scheme on that awesome Siege mold. Red Wing is new new to me too I’m loving all these variations and obscure pulls.

Watching the video of Omega has kinda killed my excitement for him. I don’t know why but finally seeing him in hand has really deflated me wanting him. I really wish I could explain why but I can’t. I watch it and just said “oh, so that’s how he transforms. Okay...” I don’t know what I was expecting but I guess I was expecting more than just he sits down and you remove his arms and chest. First time I’ve kinda just been “meh” with a Titan. Hopefully my mood changes when I get one

Got my ship notice for Refraktor as well. My excitement was tempered by the fact that it is fedex shipping it. So delivery dates mean nothing, addresses mean who knows what, and if you overnight it means "whenever we feel like it".

Fedex has just absolutely sucked for me lately, at least for anything time sensitive.

Got mine too, should have them tomorrow. I've actually found the opposite, at least from Pulse with Fedex. Items usually arrive the next day for me (midwest), and have been extremely reliable from Pulse.

Well it looks super cool just on its own but I’m using Chromia’s grenades in the picture. Thanks! Really looks like he’s ready to swipe some of Optimus’s torso away.

I noticed a new tab on the Hasbro Pulse site called "Unboxed", so I decided to click and see what was there and it looks like extra background details for many of the current toy line including Siege and the story behind the various military insignias. Below is the link to the page on Siege, enjoy!

https://hasbropulse.com/blogs/unboxed/t ... s-revealed

They also have some additional info on the G1 re-released cassettes and Omega Supreme design videos.

Edit: Now I have to dig out all my packaging and sort all my siege figures by division, unit and rank

Got my Refraktor earlier today, and I’m way more impressed by these guys in hand than I thought I’d be, based off of photos. Decos are awesome. The metallic paint is downright gorgeous. And it has some of the nicest packaging I’ve ever seen from a TF product. Has/Tak really nailed these guys. Worth every penny.

My one and only complaint is that one of mine has two left hands, but I can ignore that.

Man, that sucks, maybe you will get lucky and another Seibertronian will get one with two right hands.

Also, any chance that the hand itself is the same plastic as used on the regular release? Then you could at least fix the SDCC version leaving the regular release as a double lefty.
