That's hilarious. If they manage to get away with it...

Now even Robotkingdom, based in Hong Kong, is saying that they may have cancel orders for Exhaust based in the US.

Did HLJ email people? Their product page is just gone, but Exhaust is still in my orders section.

Wherever this is coming from, this is a big f-ck up.

However, I can't help but grin at how a Z-lister who "should not steal a spot from a real character" has now become the most sought-after MP in the lineup!
Few stuff in the UK to trade/sell. Measly sales thread.

Isn't this what they call the Streisand Effect?

However they call it, it also made me not want to cancel mine. I was originally going to, but seeing that every other order was/is going to be cancelled manually, might as well keep it as a piece of history :lol:

Transformation pictures, box and manual pictures and all the usual stuff is out for Magnus at tfw2005, courtesy of robotkingdom.

Magnus looks ace, transformation of the cab/upper body looks insane.
