Just got my set, nice to have a magnaguard who has managed to elude me all this time. Really great line up starting to form for Cal to face off against.

Broke down and just pre-ordered it. It's probably better to buy it and then sell off the other two than to try getting Biker Scout on it's own.

Up here in Canada, with my Gamestop discount, comes to about $50 USD for the set.

This Magnaguard needed to be upgraded. Even the TCW v2 guard had updated ball jointed rocker ankles back in 2010. Perhaps if they decided to release it as a ROTS version in the future it could use an update.

I briefly entertained the idea of ordering a few from SAF in the UK but decided against as you can only order 2 of them per shipment due to the size/weight and with shipping at ~$35 per box, it didn't make sense to add almost $18 to the cost of each set just to get these a bit early. I will just leave my EE preorder in place and get them later in the year.

Just got my shipping notice from Gamestop. Comes to about $50 US so same as what it is in the US. I'm only keeping the Biker Scout though.

Cheaper this way than trying to get the Scout on his own.

Was thinking about this one for the same reason, as well as wanting the K2 droid. Magnaguards are a hard pass.

I'm not keeping the MagnaGuard so I didn't open it. However, here are some loose pics of the other two with comparisons.

Riot Scout Trooper - the only difference in the paint I see is that the new one has darker red paint on the harness.

The shield has a clip and handle for him to hold

For the KX Security Droid, it's just a repaint of K2-SO with the backpack glued on. It's not removable.

As you can see, the antena on the mold is still there and they just put a cut out in backpack to accomodate it.

I'm glad they fixed the Scout trooper's visor! I kept skipping the regular one because of that.
Also, this set is a great way to get a Magna guard for a bargain... based on Aftermarket prices for just the original version.

Hasbro pulse sent out a shipping notification for this one today.

EE is starting to piss me off w/ this order. Both items on my order had non mint options, so why can't EE have a set up on order form to check a box if you are willing to accept non mint. And let fullfillment be by order number. My 3pk has been processing since Thursday. And payment cleared the bank Monday AM. Oh and Ee sent this email highlighting r2. I guess the jumped over launch day orders to cater to reseller accts. Needless to say, my r2 still has not started to process.at this point, it'll be after halloween when i recieve it and maybe the 3pk too. :mad:🤬

I know. R2..eta Feb, but a sold out non mint few? A friend of mine actually contacted them and supposedly they dud get a small amt of r2s in and are awaiting a restock. Still, it'd been nice to have a check box on your order indication you'd accept a discounted non mint. Sure,not all those checked would get filled, but it'd cut down on customer dissatisfaction. And to top it off, the shipping method/s use is/are SLOW.

^ I figured that was the main issue here, but still bs about non mints and their slowness on getting the 3 pk out. At times they can get individual orders out w/ 1st lot

So if someone new just went in and bought this set right now that says available, will EE ship that before my pre-order?
Hopefully not. If an order is already in the ''processing" stage, then it should go out 1st over a spanking brand new order that would need to enter the processing stage that can take several days. But once shipped, who gets thiers 1st depends on the carrier and location.

My two sets arrived two days ago from Hasbropulse, but I havent opened them up yet until I get more display room. They do look nice in package though.

I think that it very well could. Because it's a "new order" and they'll want to fulfill it, preorders whether we like it or not have a "processing time" and they can ship whenever "supplies allow". You never really know due to all the logistics involved.

So in that case, what's the flippin' point of "preordering" then?

I didn't know that there was, being as it ends up at retail options long before preorders ship and the fact you can often get them on sale not long after. IMO preordering only means you're guaranteed not to miss out if the figure winds up being popular and HTF in normal markets.

I stopped doing preorders a few years back unless it's a Walmart Exclusive that has high probability of selling out in minute thus no other options to acquire it without paying an arm and leg.

My email for 3pk shipping still hasn't arrived from EE nor has one of my shopD orders I got last week. But my acts showed shipped so that's a plus.
They could be just overloaded w/ notices.
