    Well rats.

    I expect I'll be receiving a preorder cancellation from BBTS, then.

    Didn't the 14" version retail for around $250 or $300? Is so, i'm not surprised it was canceled.

    Just thinking... so the Autobot & Decepticon motion globes are cancelled from Diamond (at least as best as anyone's been able to tell), then this, and we've heard nothing out of F4F for a while about the status of their upcoming TF stuff.

    I wouldn't imagine there are a ton of people buying these types of products, so the profit margins aren't enormous anyway - but with the movie on the horizon, I wonder why there's not a bit more going on in the TF statue/bust arena.

    Doh, guess I should have specified: "Any future plans?" Oh well, I guess BBTS will drop the page. I had no plans to buy a 14"er anyway.

    Well, that may be moot for me too. Had no plans on TF snow globes or other Battlefield Statues. (The first Battlefield Staute is more than enough). Still, the dropping of these TF items in the Movie year 2007 has me wondering as well.

    The giant Matrix of Leadership fills that void nicely.

    Yeah, sorta... when I pick it up, though, I can't shake the feeling that it's just a decent kitbash someone made.

    It's too bad but I doubt I ever would've gotten one anyway.

    Likewise. A big Optimus bust was a cool idea but for how insanely expensive it was, I can't imagine it was doing well on preorders. It looks like a helmet of similar size is coming out for the movie... maybe a better idea would have been an Optimus head to put it on, build your own bust kinda thing.
