Pretty nifty IMO. I'm generally impressed with the 'upgrade' bits being offered these days; just ordered one of these to round out Rodimus.

Probably asking in completely the wrong thread, but has anyone heard anything about a release date for the CorbotV War Axe, for WFC Prime?

...Actually, has anyone even mentioned that accessory here? I can't find anything about it on a search of the forum...

As far as I know it released a few days ago.

Generally things like this will crop up in the sponsor news threads, since those stores carry unofficial accessories. In this case, BBTS list it as in stock as per Thunderwave's link, TFSource currently have it as a preorder -- http://www.tfsource.com/products/view/product_id/1914/

It sucks, waiting for sh*t to happen... _

They do seem to be cheaper on shipping to the UK, judging by the quotes I was getting earlier.

Here's a video of that War Axe. It seems to be pretty nice.

Hmm... Just been over to TFSource, to see if they'd had stock in on the War Axe. They haven't, and don't seem to be in a terrible hurry about it. This does not bode well for my preorder.

Also, my FansProject Protector / Sidearm still hasn't arrived yet. I have emails confirming that it was posted out on Dec 18th, and was shipped out of the US on Dec 20th. It is now Jan 2nd and, holidays and bad weather not withstanding, it has not yet arrived.

I have contacted TFSource, they tell me that I needn't worry, but I should probably check in with the apropriate customs website and have my tracking/customs number to hand (Directions, please?).

On the same day, I also sent a carefully-worded email to Royal Mail/The Post Office, politely asking them if they'd be so kind as to update me on the status and location of my package, seeing as its status on their tracking system hasn't changed from 'ADVISED' in 10 days; they haven't currently taken the time to send me even an automated response.

All-in-all, one might say that I could fit quite snuggly into that thorny little nishe labled 'Rather F***in' Concerned'.

Shipping outside the US usually takes 3 weeks when hollidays are involved.

Given the week or so backlog for weather coupled with multiple bank holidays, I'm not really expecting the package I ordered about a week later (Firebolt / WST Shockwave) via USPS First Class in the first half of January.

Even with Priority RM aren't very good about filling out tracking at their end, unless there's a customs charge incurred.

There've been, what, seven, eight working days since the 20th. Mind, a bunch of G.I. Joe figures I paid for on the 19th from an American seller arrived in my hands on Thursday. This is probably due to me being awesome. Or the seller liking me because I bought three barely recoloured G.I. Joe figures off them for a daft price (albeit a lot less than some platform shoes for Hot Rod). Or the shipping being something like US $40, which probably covers having some hot chick waterski them across the Atlantic on boxing day.

Colour me surprised -- one of the things RM put a card through yesterday was this. Shame the WST Shockwave mould is a piece of shit with the arms hanging loose, but it'll probably fix up when I have time.

Protector arrived in the post this morning - and thank f*** for that. God knows that's a weight of my shoulders.

Awesome little bit of kit, actually. Still every bit as wary of breaking something as was necessary with the City Commander, regardless of what the reviewers have been saying - it's more the chestpiece than anything, don't know why.

Also, Sidearm/Not-Firebolt = PURE WIN.

Mmm, the high pressure caused by non-instant transatlantic toy shipping really is a cross to bear.

Strangely, I'm really liking the new upgrade sticker set Reprolabels have put out for Metroplex.
