I preordered this case and it says it will ship on March 5th. It is like the Kraken but with less bulk.

just glanced on the trident site and the cyclops is now available. Already have 2 kraken's that i switch back and forth to change the colors up a bit and i absolutely love the kraken, but considering trying out the cyclops too. Not sure what the main difference is, looks like it has all the same features of the kraken, but maybe just a little bit thinner

probably gonna end up ordering one tonight lol. Only downside is i'm so used to the holster for the kraken, i'm sure it wouldn't work with the cyclops

It's $35.00 bucks! What could make a case worth that much ?

same price as the kraken and still cheaper than defender. Pretty hard to find any decent cases under $25-30

That is a hulkin' big case. Looks like it adds quite a bit of bulk.

I might try one of them out. It looks like the camera/flash opening is much larger and not divided which is a plus. Also looks like the top center of the case goes up a little higher so you can drag the notification bar easier.

I could only order the black on black case. I am hoping they will have skins for it in the future.

Does it work with the extended battery because the defender doesn't

Not going to be switching from the kraken for any case unless it fits a large gg battery. The kraken is the best imo, cyclops just doesnt do it for me...

Seems like only the black on black is available for pre-order... as soon as the other colors become available I'll definitely be picking one up-- I don't use the camera w/ the Kraken because of the flash issue, but perhaps the Cyclops will change that for us Kraken users.

I called them today and they told me the colored ones should be available in about three weeks.

That is not true. I have moto ext batt (BH6X) and defender. Works just fine (yes, I'm aware otterbox themselves say it doesn't work).

Apparently the 21st is thee new street date. Im holding out on ordering the Incipio case till this hits the shelves and some one tells us what the size differance. Id prefer this case cuz of the built in screen protector.

Hopefully the date is accurate this time. Pre-ordered one a few weeks ago and every week it is supposed to be released they push it back another week

So has the release date been pushed back? On the website it says it's only for pre-order. I'm deciding between either this or the Incipio case. Tough decision. =/

I've been watching for the release of this case for a month but I'm not going to order one until I know the size and dimensions first. Personally, I think they are trying to entice preorders by setting the release date close but have no intention of actually manufacturing any cases until they get enough preorders to help cover the cost of producing the first batch.

They haven't updated the order page yet, so you may be right. I think I'm going to contact them and ask if they have started shipping out the cases already and just haven't updated the site yet, or when they plan on starting shipments.

Got an email from them yesterday, case is supposed to be released early to mid april now. Anyone with preorders will receive 10% discount and priority shipping when it is finally released, or can switch it for the kraken and also receive 10% off. Guess i will just keep my preorder and wait bc i already have the kraken. I can't beleive this thing has been pushed back so much on the release date

I'm really excited for this case, but they're not going to be getting MORE orders by continually pushing this back. Folks who NEED a case ASAP are just going to have to go with something else. As it is, we're at T minus 4 days til DX "EOL".

And they're saying mid-April for the BLACK? Those of us who want a different color, what are we looking at... July? :disappointed:

If anyone gets one sometime soon, please post pics!

I totally agree with you Beka. I think it's time for me to start looking around elsewhere.

Sadly for me, I HAVE looked elsewhere, and I've only really been EXCITED for this case. I don't like the Otterbox cases. I like the look of the Kraken, but it just seems huge.

I have a VZ Body Glove right now. It... works. It's just not very exciting.
I really wanted something that would be a little more unique. People around these parts just get the basic VZ cases, I wanted a WOW factor! LOL!

Maybe off to Amazon I go...
