Robot Kingdom looks like they still have them in stock for about AU$37.

Herein lies the really crappy thing about retailers who are late in delivering stock. It can make it harder and dearer for customers to source these toys later. Even if they give you the refund, it still means that you have to go and find alternative sources for these toys -- chances which were easier before but you passed them up because you put your faith in TLTC. Whenever this sort of thing happens it kinda feels like the retailer is punishing you for your loyalty. In the case of PC, just outright gutting you.

*sigh* Yeah, I think as others have said, TLTC may be okay for in-stock items, but when it comes to pre-ordering stock it seems that they're becoming increasingly unreliable. Hopefully everyone with outstanding orders either gets their toys or money back in a timely manner.
Well, that sucks...

Yeah, I'll still wait for the one I ordered from TLTC. Though I'm now curious about who their supplier is, and how frequently they order from them.

I've never bought from RK before, and I'm not sure what their shipping costs are like. I've read that it can get pretty high.

Pounce and Wingspan were my first Transformers as a child, and I promised myself I'd get them if Neo-G1 (or CHUG) versions were ever made. I wouldn't mind paying up to $60 (shipped), but that's my maximum. That price is outrageous for two legends figures.

Rk shipping isn't priced great:
Looks about $93 shipped for their slowest shipping, $101 shipped for their fastest.

To put it in perspective, you are looking at around $65 shipping for a masterpiece seeker (and they are damn light).

I picked up my order today (PotP Rodimus and LG-61 Pounce and Wingspan). It took a while, but I'm very happy overall

I'm so glad I now finally have Pounce and Wingspan. I've been wanting these for so long. Pounce and Wingspan were the first Transformers I ever got as a child, so these new ones hold a very special place in my heart.

I still haven't received a reply from them since 2/11/18. At least since they now have an auto reply on their email I know they are receiving my emails. The auto reply will be good to give to my bank.

I haven't gotten my Dinobot.

They did cancel my Novastar and send me my Predaking.
