Both Henkei exclusives, Thrust and Dirge, have been delayed. ToyHobby & Ganbo Store notified me via email that their stores' exclusive figures are going to be released in April.

ToyHobby gave a little more detail and explained that they are hoping to ship Dirge by the beginning of April. No further information from Ganbo, but they probably are shooting for the same for Thrust. The reason for the delay was not given, but production, packaging, and shipping can sometimes be a factor.

I was planning on holding them in my POL until Grimmy arrives anyway. Really doesn't matter, whatever day that trio arrives is gonna be better than Christmas.

Man, it is looking like my April credit card bill is going to be huge. I was hoping to not get Grimlock and these seekers in the same credit card billing cycle. If I keep the Transformers purchases below or around $100 a month, they will not be noticed by my wife.

Dang, it. I am going to have a heck of a time explaining the cost of Grimlock + the Seekers. That is a lot of $$ in one month and will make our bill larger than normal. I can already hear in my mind the conversation we will be having. She will ask why our bill is larger than normal, and I will have to think of some creative explanation. If you guys have any ideas on how I can spin this it would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. We do not carry balances on our cards. We pay them off. That is why it will be difficult for her not to notice.

Hey guys this is why all of you should boycott Henkei and only buy Hasbro products from American retail. I dont have a problem paying 20 bucks shipping and handling but why should a figure that sells for about 15 bucks in a Japanese toy store be sold for $50-60 bucks here not including shipping ? The problem is the middle man. If anyone had a friend in japan I guarantee he could pick you up a Henkei figure for retail cost. If people would stop dealing with these "exclusive" companies online, Hasbro would see a gold mine and issue their own repaints for the seekers and bring the masterpiece line out retail like they brought Starscream as a walmart exclusive. Just some food for thought and no disrespect to anyone who feels differently...Peace
