In an e-mail update to its shoppers, UK online retailer KAPOW toys is reporting that the two Energon/Universe Bruticus Maximus upgrades, Crossfire XF-02A Explorer with Combat Unit Appendage Kit, Crossfire XF-02B Munitioner with Combat Unit Appendage Kit, would be delayed, with a new release date set for July 2010.

The Fans Project created sets were expected to be shipping this month to online retailers.

Good and bad news I suppose. Longer to save for the expensive sets. But these sets are in the top five of most collector's 'MUST HAVE' lists, so waiting longer for them is a bit disappointing.

Other online retailers to this point, have not updated their expected delivery dates, although unlikely, perhaps this delay is only effecting KAPOW? Or is it for all online stores?

Well that sucks! On the brite side I've got a bunch of pre-orders about to hit so the delay will help in that respect. Hopefully they will be released at the same time.

I recently sent a message to TFSource on facebook asking if they had a more specific release date. They replied "Unless things change... right now FP said they won't be out until after Botcon."

Damn it. I have a Universe Bruticus with two empty limbs (they are being used for customs) just waiting for these guys. Another couple of months is going to be torture.

The more I see of this set the more annoyed I am that I cannot find the Bruticus set. Seems that nowhere in the UK has it!

Actually to tell you guys the truth im glad its delayed, cause i need to save up some money for some minor car repair and the extra $100 will come in handy. And if the car repair is under a $100, then ill get some G1 Re-issues... Who knows, maybe it will be delay again until august... hope not, but it could happen...

I know how you feel Ravage, I managed to get one preordered on BigBadToyStore before they sold out. The picures attached to the post don't make it any easier. Regular Bruticus sucks in comparison.

That's great and sucks at the same time. Great because I'm moving soon and don't have the cash. Sucks because it may get shipped to the wrong house! I've already got to worry about Dion and P/CP from the club but throw in two Munitioneers, an Explorer and Defender and the rest of my PoL? Nearly enough to make me put off moving for a few months! :BANG_HEAD:

NOOOO!!!!!!

I was hoping to ship these with Alternity Starscream. I don't want to sit on him in my POL for 2+ months.

If you have to move, you gotta do it sometime. 8)

That's a good point to update your address with TFClub. I'm moving a week or two after Botcon, and I'll be damned if some punk ass 5-year-old gets my Dion by mistake.

Why, are they waiting for Hasbro to shut them down? :BANG_HEAD:

Or maybe it's because of the recent shipping delays out of China?

The worst part of this is my Defender is still sitting in my PoL because I was waiting for these. Man. This is going to be a LONG 2 months with no new TFs. We still haven't seen the last wave of ROTF or the Animated Exclusives in TRUs around here... if it's taking them this long to get those, how long are we going to have to wait for the new lines? Augh, the wait is killing me!

Well, I'm okay with this, actually. I just bought a van and the down payment cost more than expected. So, this will give me time to come up with the money. June would be a good month because it'll be my birthday, but this will work.

I'm just not sure why the dang things are being delayed so much. First April, then May, then June, now July.

I'm not sure what to do about getting Rodimus. I want to buy the figure, but I'm only interested in buying him for the Protector set, and if Protector's delayed, we might not see it for a year or so.
