I feel this is probably the best place to ask. Anyone had any luck getting Predaking from The Little Toy Company?

I preordered in July (along with the wave 3 Terrorcons and the wave 3 Prime Masters) and I haven't heard a thing yet.

Their site says "estimated arrival is August/September" for Predaking, and it's now October. I'm starting to get a little antsy.

I believe, from my last pick up with them, that they have received some but not all of their orders of Predaking, maybe only a few cases out of the total, so if you’ve not been contacted yet your’s might be in a second shipment.

I picked up TR Triggerhappy yesterday and am expecting PoTP Vector Prime/Metalhawk end of the week.

I'm a little behind the 8-ball with a few of my figures thats for sure but glad I'm getting them now!

Triggerhappy has SUPER tight joints! A far cry from my original 'Loose hips' Skullcruncher.

EDIT: Vector Prime/Metalhawk arrived, very happy with this little dude. Gun mode colour-matches Ginrai, works as a great as a head on Triggerhappy (another Functionist stand-in with Skullcruncher!) and as a Matrix fill-in for Nemesis Prime. He suits quite a few accessories in my collection!

Bought the new Power Charge Bumblebee. He's a huge figure with a fairly simple transformation but both robot and vehicle modes look cool. Switched off the 'power charge' feature...too annoying. :)

Picked up potp Predaking today. Chunky individual bot modes, fairly straightforward transformations... Predaking looks good but the back is a bit of a mess. May need to revisit.

I ordered in July also and queried when my order will get filled. They responded saying that the Sept stock was used to fill the May and June orders and that they are expecting more stock at the end of this month. I am hoping that means the July orders will be filled with that stock.

I don't usually buy toys off the secondary market, but Mandarake was having a spot sale (not sure if it's still on), so I paid...
TAV Strongarm = ¥1200 ($15)
Sharktron & Sweeps = ¥1500 ($19)
Bumble & Excel-Suit Spike = ¥1500 ($19)
Plus $25 for shipping - not too shabby. :)

I just bought two sets of G1 Walmart minibots from an Aus store, only to fund they have NO tech specs whatsoever and are the foreign edition. So I am now going to have to source a new set for mosc. Knew the price was too good to be true. It has a Hasbro rrp sticker of 14.99, which means that the set we will get at retail is probably no tech spec too :(

Turn over the back Goktimus, I think you might have them too from the different look to the front packaging

Already mentioned (http://otca.com.au/boards/showthread.php?p=597349#post597349), but thanks. :)

It personally doesn't bother me as I'm just displaying them front facing forwards. But yeah, for those who want authentic looking card-backs, I advise going for the North American releases.

Although the N. American reissue's French bios are completely re-written and not the same as the wording on the original 80s Francophone bios. No idea why. <shrugs>

If you mean G1 then get whichever is easier/cheaper for you as the difference between the toys is negligible. If you mean CHUG then it depends. LG Overlord is more visually G1 accurate but the faces are more cartoonish and it does sacrifice the chest gimmick. TR Overlord still looks nice in its own right, just not as G1 accurate. The face is much less cartoony in appearance and it has the chest gimmick (i.e. 2 cavities that can hold a pair of Titan Masters). I personally prefer LG Overlord, but both toys are quite fine in their own right - depends on what your preferences are.

Full set of G1 Minibots from Cotton On in better condition this time (http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showpost.php?p=597957&postcount=1522). Yay!

So I sent Cotton On an email about my bent card, and they apologized and said they'll bring it up with upper management. They also gave me a discount off my next purchase. I won't say how big a discount it was, but it was good enough to provide an incentive to buy the whole set!

REMEMBER: If you plan on keeping your figure MOC/MISB and you're buying online, make sure you message the vendor telling them to pack it well!

I use this. And when you enter the tracking number it should tell you which company it has been transferred to with a new tracking number. In my case it was Fastway.
