So... Is Anyone Else Still Getting The Amazon Jetwing Optimus?


Recommended Posts

Back before botcon it really seemed like a no brainer to preorder the jetwing optimus. Every month since amazon has sent me a email reminding me that they honestly don't know when they will actually get the figure and that they will tell me when they know more.


Now here it is November, I had put it so far in the back of my mind that I had totally forgot I had even preordered it and I get the email they send. Honestly when I first saw the email I thought g2 bruticus has shipped, since the title of the email is very similar to the one Amazon sends out when a order ships. XD


Anyways I suppose it could had been brought on by the disappointment of g2 bruticus not being shipped, but I am seriously considering just canceling jetwing prime. I mean yes... it has the retoolings I wanted done to the original ROTF mold, removal of the stupid spring loaded swords, the buster tanks, and easier to transform torso. But then I got to thinking about it, during DOTM and ROTF the leader class figures were $30-$40 each, So I am essentially paying $70-$80 for a giant mass of extra plastic that does not serve any other purpose than to take up space and weigh down prime more. I mean yes... it looks cool and is considerably cheaper than the Takara version, but there seems to be so much more out that's worthy of the $110.


How about you guys? Think it would be the wrong move to drop it like a lead weight in a flood?

it's up to you. i think this is a vast improvement over the Takara version since the jet parts actually are painted and aren't a solid gray color. and that one sold for $200... I'm keeping mine. they haven't charged me yet so i have no complaints. i just wish they would put a date on it soon. I'm also fine with waiting for G2 Bruticus. Free shipping is nice. i'm not home til december so i can wait the longer wait time.

Amazon's Jetwing Prime is my number 1 priority in buying everything else has been secondary and picked up because nothing has been coming out about Amazon's Jetwing Prime

So totally forgot that I had preordered this guy. I could have sworn that I cancelled it the last time I cleaned out the collection (which is up on ebay right now, link available over in the endcap). But I think right now I am going to leave it be and wait and see. I currently have the Striker Prime combined with Jetfire and not sure I need another movie prime.

I thought at SDCC Jetwing Prime had Nov 12 on the tag sitting next to it and Bruticus had Dec 12? I ordered the last three pieces to Bruticus last week from ToysRUs and recieved them Saturday. I'm going to keep my Jetwing Prime preorder and hope it does arrive in Nov.
