So they come out at the very end of May.

The June date held true, they just moved it to early June.

I'd say a full 30 days earlier than projected release is something good. If you're looking at it in the "It still won't get to me until June" aspect, then consider the fact that the original release date would get you the figures in July.

Of course it’s something good, I guess, I’m just saying it’s still close to the original release date.

Cant wait to hop on to some of those movie clearance sales… Three dollar Transformers, here I come!

DANG... I was about to go order a Grimlock and Lugnut.
Oh well, got my first order in a while ago.

And thanks for the good news about the early ship date!!
That's pretty sweet.

Man, Animated goodies a month early?
That'll help make for a good start to the summer!

I'm also hoping some of these movie shelf-warmers go super cheap when Animated comes out. It seems like all my local stores are stuffed with movie toys that aren't selling. Even the Deluxe price reduction at Target is hardly a clearance sale. I'm looking for $3-4. I can't understand why the RealGear stuff hasn't gone way down, at least.

For those of you who have ordered from HTS before, do they charge up front or when the items ship on preorders?

I called them and asked and they said that they charge your credit card when the order ships.

Placed my preorder, figure this is better than driving all over hunting for these with gas prices the way they are. Wonder why you can preorder Leader Bulkhead, but Voyager is listed as coming soon. Seems like it should be the other way around.

Wish I had known that about an hour ago, considering my order was over 200.00.
