Default Device label Blaster delayed again

On again, off again... the release of this item is so unreliable.
It was delayed until May, but now it is put off again until July.

For crying out ...

ML Soundwave needs his 'partner'
I also want to have another reason to take Ravage to work and 'impress' the work people.

This is the TF figure I have been looking forward to most since DL Ravage and they keep screwing around with it..

Have they actually given any sort of decent explanation as to why they are having trouble with it?

How about this for wild speculation? The usb hub has to carry a current to power devices but the plastic used can't handle the heat generated and warps at a critical area. That's the only thing I can think of.
Yes the delay sucks

Please forgive my stupid question, but I have just done a google image search on the device label blaster and he seems to turn into a laptop, is that right ? If so, does anyone know the specs for it ?

Specs are Omega, a 4 port USB 2.0 Hub.
Hope that helps.

As Hursticon said, it's actually a USB hub, not an actual working laptop if that's what you thought.

Yep, it kust looks like a laptop, but is quite small (pics of the product should show the USB ports on the sides, for a sense of scale - only 2 can fit on each side).
