Any more interest in these?
Better paint jobs, more G1 accuracy than Hasbro. :D

I'm surprised there aren't more folks signing up for these releases. They represent some excellent upgrades (or at least worthy variants) to the Hasbro decos, and for pretty decent prices considering most of the online stores ask for US$30 before shipping. I am very pleased to be landing my Takara Windblade for the above price, thanks Zip. :)

I "may" have a small issue with this order.

I preordered 10 of each item, and on Saturday adjusted the order to what was actually needed.
Double checking this morning, I had 10 of each on order.
I made the change again and checking just now, I still have 10 of each on order.

This is the first time I have had this issue with the website. I have emailed their support team and I hope to resolve this before I get a bill for 10 of each release.

Just received this regarding Arcee - looking for alternatives

Thank you for your order with us for TKT81295 LG10 Arcee.
Unfortunately, we have learned that the manufacturer has only produced a very limited number of this item. Although we placed a large order for this item with our distributors, we will receive a very small number of pieces on or about February 15, and have exhausted our attempts to find any additional sources.
As always, when this item comes out we will fill orders in the order that they were placed. Unfortunately, given the extremely small number of pieces that we will receive, we have determined that there is no chance that we can fill your entire order, so we've had to reduce quantities to a limit of one TKT81295 per customer, regardless of how many were ordered
