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?

Same here. My birthday's in July so hoping to get some B-day cash to put towards this.

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.

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.

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

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!
If you have to move, you gotta do it sometime.
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?
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!

I think I'm going to ship mine now.

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.
