That's why I don't preorder anything anymore.
I don't have a Damocles Sword hanging over my head. Plus often, my mind changed MONTHS after I preordered a thing. I then facepalmed at myself and ask "why in the nine hells did I preorder that thing? Now I'm stuck buying this or I lose my reputation with that store..."
#-o :BANG_HEAD:

Then I pay. Then I get the thing. Then I hate it more than what I would have normally. Especially if I had to pay custom fees on top.
So, no. No more credit card purchases. No more preordering. And if I really, REALLY want something, I pay it cash as it is available.

Still I was able to get the Kotobukiya Pokemon figures of Haruka and Touko only because I pre-ordered them....
All right. I'll be honest and if I ever do preorder something, it will only be for some top priority wants that I know I will never be able to get locally and will be the kind of item that will be instantly sold out. And those will be pretty rare items. Like I said for the MP-44 thread, I no longer buy (or pre-order) "kinda wants". Only the top priority REALLY wants.

What did they do that crushed your hopes?

I'm gonna guess either the pre-orders being for april 1, or that the deluxe prices have gone back up, or some wayward bug rained on his parade :-?


Yeah, they had cheap prices for an hour or two, then jacked them back up before I got an order placed.

Litteraly raised them while I clicked the checkout icon. Added SS DotM Megs at 39.99, but when I went to pay, he was 49.99

Kinda glad Pulse sold out of Ecto1, I woulda paid that price and I'm not a GHostbusters Fan. Don't like that you cant preorder with PayPal, that sucks. And they are out of most of the figures I wanted anyway. Oh well.

Sige Springer looks like a fun toy. I dont like the colors though, too faded. Cartoon accurate or know, I prefer the richness of the T30 Springer. I'll probably be unable to resist getting him.

Siege Omega Supreme Photographed on NY Toy Fair 2019 Showfloor

Motto: "Manners make the man."
Weapon: Sonic Umbrella
Toy Fair 2019 has not even officially begun, and already we have a new show-floor image of the highly anticipated WFC Siege Titan Class Omega Supreme! The image comes courtesy of Vector Sigma on Facebook, who uploaded them straight from the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York. The image showcases Omega Supreme in both robot and base modes, and gives us our best idea yet of how the figure will scale with the rest of Siege's lineup. Eagle-eyed viewers will be able to sight several other figures, including several recognizable Studio Series figures a ways into the background.

With Toy Fair 2019 officially begin within twelve hours of writing, be sure to stay tuned to Seibertron.com for more from this highly hyped event!

The siege line has been killing it and has become my favorite toy line. The only thing that is hate to accept is the prices. I was at targer with ultra magnus in my hand and it felt like i was 10 again. Then insaw the price tag. $50?!!!! Such a diffult decision to put it back on the shelf. I remember the good days of beast wars when it was $5 for basics, $10 for deluxes, $20 for mega and $30 for ultra.

I will be picking that bad boy up. He looks great - just as good as the third party offerings, and he's half the price, and is plenty big enough to be displayed with Masterpiece line, which is really all I collect. Thank you Has/Tak for that....now if you guys can just improve you MP release schedule, and drop that damn MP Hound...

You know, as much as I don’t care for his alt-mode, Omega certainly has that imposing stature down pat in robot mode. He really looks good in a battle scene.

Awe inspiring, but...

Is it the lighting and paint playing tricks, or is the orange claw translucent plastic? Did we already know this, and how well will that hold up over time if displayed in base mode with the rocket standing up?

As good as any 3P indeed, but I hope an off-brand replacement for those 3 pieces doesn't become necessary. Eagerly awaiting more pics.

1. How is anyone suppose to know any of these questions you’re asking? We are all seeing this for the first time and 2. None of it is necessary. If you don’t want transparent pieces that’s up to you. It’s not like a lot of weight is going to be placed on it.

He has every right to be concerned, translucent plastic tends to be a little weaker than solid colored plastic. We don't need to have seen the figure before now to know this, we can tell from experience with other figures. They were transparent in the CG stock images we saw before, but I'm not sure if people really noticed it at the time. It's definitely something people are going to not like, Bumblevivisector is not alone on this. Personally I'm indifferent, but would have preferred solid orange. I will say the parts do look pretty thick and are probably stronger than, say, a thin windshield.

But man, that rocket is massive! Insert "that's what she said" joke here. It appears to have an opening hatch to stick Micromasters in, you can see Countdown standing on it at the top. I wonder if a portion of it also stores in his legs or something, not just his back?

The claws may be clear plastic, but how much weight will it actually have to hold? Considering the play value that might be within that rocket, the rocket could actually be pretty light.

Okay, so sorry I 1. Posed any sort of general question about one part of this highly anticipated and expensive reveal, and 2. -considered the possibility that this might have already been addressed elsewhere, as I'm not omniscient. Sheesh.

And what, someone mentioned that it DOES come with optional opaque parts? I don't understand your second-to-last sentence.

And for the record, regardless, this looks as awesome as I'd hoped.

So excited for Omega Supreme. Can't wait. He might be my most anticipated Titan. I do like thr translucent claw in Rocket mode, looks like thrust plumes spreading out along the ground. But I understand concerns about longevity on those parts.

So base transformation, is it really as simple as taking the Tank out of the torso and doing the splits, then connecting the track? Not complaining mind you, seems easy though. Wondering where the redt of the rocket goes though.
