Thanks to heads up from some fellow Seibertronians, we have news of another delay on some highly anticipated figures. Kraken and Lobclaw (known as Seawing and Nautilator outside Japan) have had their ship date delayed, as can be seen in the notice below.

While this doesn't come as much of a surprise, given that Pulse delayed their orders for Turtler and Gulf, it is disappointing for those who preordered these figures and now have to wait an additional month, as these figures were expected at the end of February. While it's currently unknown if the final figures for the King Poseidon/Piranacon combiner, Tentakil and Overbite, will also be delayed, at this point, it seems inevitable. We'll keep you informed as soon as we know.

Please stay tuned to Seibertron for all your Transformers news, and let us know what you think of the delay below!

Kinda Glad that I ordered from TF Source instead of Pulse. Turtler and Gulf just shipped

I'm glad I did too, but for a different set of reasons.

A) they will all ship together for me

B) If I had gone Pulse, I would have had to frantically keep an eye on the shipping (which they are bad for sending notifications btw) because all of these new dates are right around when I am moving, and that would be chaos

I'm not sure if I would be more or less annoyed if I knew why they were delayed.

I ordered the entire set at TFSource, mostly because I knew they'd ship together, and for free. I don't have Pulse Premium, and I'm not sure Pulse has a threshold for free shipping otherwise.

Pulse is free shipping. They add the shipping cost and then discount the shipping cost for it making it free. There’s no requirement amount either like tfsource. You buy a $20 figure and say shipping is $10 you’re total is $30 but then they give $10 discount making your total $20

Since I knew the move was coming, I have a very large stack right now, it hit free shipping back in November (started accruing in September). I swear, when King Poseidon comes, he and the rest will be in a box that could fit a chair

So does this also apply if you ordered via TFSource? Or will it still come in February via them?

This whole situation is infuriating. They haven't given any information as to why these delays keep happening. It's a pretty good way to lose your customer base to sites like TFSource and BBTS.

Yup. Different site, different group of people. It's a good way to reach like-minded customers and get their feedback. Who knows, maybe someone actually knows the answer.

The delay should allow opportunity for more orders. But I know that's not happening. These are officially as rare, expensive, and exclusive as convention exclusives now.

That's how it works if you're a premium member (if you placed an order on Pulse during February 2019 you got free premium for a year), but for regular buyers the shipping is only free on orders over $50.

Just a guess, but seeing as how all of the ones showing up at TFSource and the likes are coming from China it seems likely that Hasbro is getting theirs directly from Takara Tomy Mall since they followed the same pre-order restrictions. That would mean the delays are likely on Takara Tomy's end after they've handled their own distribution and then sent them on a slow boat to the USA.

Hopefully with Wonderfest this weekend we'll see Armada Convoy again and maybe Super Megatron

Super Megatron for the win! You know, since his silhouette shows the TR Galvatron mold, I wonder if he'll keep the already Megatron-esque Titan Master :lol:

I must admit, I'm looking forward to the Super Megatron reveal myself as that's obviously what the King Posideon Manga chapters are leading up to. Though I think that they'll ditch the titan master gimmick completely with him but we shall see.

I am ready to see Super Megatron and hopefully Armada Prime. I'm excited for these japanese G1 characters and some Armada flavor

Well, no new Generations SELECTS at Wonder Fest unfortunately. And according to one person on TFW2005 who went to it and talked to the booth rep, that Armada Prime prototype was just to gauge interest, and it hasn't been decided which line it would be in if released. But, supposedly it hasn't been confirmed cancelled. Hopefully we'll see it at the next convention Takara goes to, and hopefully it stays in the Generations SELECTS line because then it might somewhat reasonably priced :lol:
