Well, it was rather inevitable, seeing as how the others in the set were delayed, but now we've got official confirmation via a handful of Seibertronians, letting us know that the final members of the Generations Selects Seacons, Overbite and Tentakil, will be delayed in shipping if they were preordered via Hasbro Pulse. Also delayed via Pulse is MP-38+ Burning Convoy, the red redeco of MP Optimus Primal. Shown below is the email recieved by Seibertronian Lore Keeper.

Note that this delay only affects Hasbro Pulse preorders. Those who ordered previous Seacons from other sources have seen their figures ship on time. Beyond the notice of delay, Pulse has given no indication of what caused the delays for their orders.

Those of you who've ordered through Pulse, what do you think of the delay? What are your thoughts on the issue? Let us know in the forums below, and please stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest Transformers news!

The delays are awful here, why are so many Takara products being delayed?

I'm definitely glad I did not order from Pulse, this is a mess right now

Man. Pulse seems like a total trainwreck.

I, obviously, can't speak in definitive terms... But given that they (almost definitely) have the first two in hand, I think these delays were intentional so that the whole combiner could be finished in the span of about of a month.

I know it makes me sound like an apologist, and that theory doesn't hold water when considering Star Convoy, though.

Either way, I don't mind the delay. It just means that my Seacons stand alone for a shorter amount of time.

This isn't so bad, it's only a month. These guys would have been released at the end of March, now it's the end of April. I've waited longer than that for TFSource to fill an on time order. This also means we're getting four Seacons in April with wave 2 coming at the start. Just means I'm a month behind everyone else in completing the set, I'm fine with that.

Incidentally I just noticed Star Convoy is in stock on Pulse so I guess they're stocking extras after all unless they had a lot of cancellations.

You're overthinking it a bit since they've also been delaying MPs, basically everything they've been getting from Takara Tomy. Besides, the designers might consider such a thing when planning waves, but there's no reason for Pulse to care.

Well, on the bright side of these delay announcements...

*records the ID codes and product numbers*

Hang on a second... With Star Convoy as TT-GS01 it's supposed to end with TT-GS07, not TT-GS08... Ah, TT-GS05 is missing! :-?

You're right, Hasbro skipped over TT-GS05. Takara Tomy didn't number these so I wonder how Hasbro missed that?

I really like the convenience of Pulse, but if they don't address all these delays, I'll be going elsewhere for my Takara imports. It's just not worth the wait with no explanation.

I'm not sold on ER Starscream yet. I like the jet mode but the robot mode is underwhelming. I wonder if Hasbro would ever consider releasing a special edition in the Selects line, with a comic-accurate deco, using white on the gray parts and a blue head. I would be down for that instantly.

Maybe, depends on how long ago Hasbro made the numbers. Turtler and Super Megatron were teased at the same time. That does align with my theory that Super Megatron was delayed because they scrapped their original plans to use TR Galvatron in favor of the rumored Earthrise version. The other problem is that as 05 it would have been right in the middle of Seacon wave 2 which is strange unless they originally intended to do two waves of 3 instead of 3 waves of 2.

There was quite a bit of time between the delay announcements of Nautilator and Seawing and the delay announcements for Tentakill and Overbite. Makes me wonder something. A week after the delay announcements of Snaptrap and Skalor, both figures showed up on TFSource. All 4 remaining figures are claiming February release dates on TFSource. Will this still be the case, or is it more likely that the TFSource customers will get Nautilator and Seawing this month and then will get Tentakill and Overbite in March?

The delay on Pulse has nothing to do with release schedules elsewhere. But TFSource is making an error if they're saying Overbite and Tentakill are coming in February, they've always been scheduled for March.

I put out a tweet about that a while back. My assumption was always the Armada Optimus.

I hope they still give the 05 designation to somebody... I'm a serial completionist, and not having an 05 at all would really cause some sleepless nights.

Unfortunately the word at Wonder Festival a little over a week ago was that Armada Convoy wasn't an actual product, just a proof of concept. Supposedly if there's enough fan interest he can still happen, but he doesn't seem to be a top priority right now and they definitely weren't reserving a number for him.

I have been wondering about that. Could TT-GS05 be the Siege Nemesis Prime?

You might have missed the boat, or at least the least expensive boat to avoid 3rd party sellers. He was announced back in September and was the one TT Selects offering that I don't think Hasbro Pulse carried so far. Looks to be pretty much sold out everywhere else. He was due in 1st Quarter 2020, putting him in the right timing for TT GS05, but it is weird that they would split up a pair of seacons to insert Nemesis Prime in between.

Oh that ship has sailed and sunk. I was just saying that I'd be happy if Siege NemmyP showed up on Pulse under the Selects line.

Now that is where I do reserve a small bit of optimism seeing as Star Convoy did make a second appearance on Pulse. Who knows, maybe they can pull some strings and get a few once all the other retailers orders are filled.
