Pre-ordered Slipstream and Nightbird.

The other one isn't mandatory.



Edit: Yes she is.....

You may be waiting awhile, as Hasbro probably won't be getting these.


Maybe Slipstream though.....possibly.

BBTS has them now. :grin:
Done!

Now.

Come oooonnn AmiAmi! :P


please god, it's cheaper to order from Ami Ami, also it doesn't help that i have other figures on preorder there >_>


From my limited experience, amiami is the last to offer preorders, so I dont think we will see them for at least 3 months before the figures are due.


And the first to sell out.

Yesterday when these went up on TFSource, I checked BBTS and they were up there, too. Preordered 1 Nightbird and 2 of each of the others. I'm not holding out on a Hasbro release for these because I'm sure the colors for TakTomy will be better. Plus with the pedipalp/bra deal with Blackarachnia, Hasbro may not go for it. I hope Slipstream's colors happen like they did for Windblade. My Kabuki sisters are Windblade and Windshear. If made different enough, you'd have sisters. Slipstream and Jetstream.

Ordered Sleep Stream from BBTS last night.
Figured it was worth preordering now so my order confirmation would have that name on it.

Not every mainline TakaraTomy figure is guaranteed a Hasbro release, and vice-versa (the Club does not count).

We may not see Black Widow in the US as a retool of an Animated mold (we may see her as a BotCon figure though, as a BotCon 2001 Arcee remake :) ) but if my theory of Nightbird and Slipstream being pretools is correct (meaning their new parts are already built into the mold from the start), Hasbro may sneak them in one way or another.

Most likely a 'con symbol, as that's how she's portrayed the most and remembered the best. Plus, Black Widow appears as a Megatron groupie in Legends manga. ;)

It's been so long since I've had my hands on my full collection that I cant even remember if I have an Animated Black Arachnia but I pre ordered this too.

Importing is always going to be cheaper. 2,480 yen which is about $20 USD

Even with shipping from Japan to Canada and import fees?

With that you gotta ask a Canadian. I would imagine it'll still be cheaper.

Edit: Never mind, did some fudging, and I found an estimate for shipping costs. I don't mind waiting 10-30 days because I'm cheap, lazy, and live on the west coast. That should cut the 30 down to like 25ish right?

Anyhow, when do you think we'll see painted prototypes? I'm thinking maybe like August, maybe July at the earliest.

I bought once from HLJ and so far, customs left that order alone and it only cost 10 stupid $ for shipping! Japanese shipping is really, really cheap compared to the Canadian one.

So, guess I'm gonna preorder from HLJ again. Blackbird and Slipstream, be mine!
