    NM got the info from Fan to fan... FTF were also told there were no more reissues scheduled.

    Which as we know is not true.

    So, at that rate. BT17 and BTA04 may well be scheduled....

    This is the second time I've seen Primus referred to as C-00, but the box clearly says just 00 (no C). M I dum, or what? What's the explanation?

    remember back in the good old days when the only way you knew a toy was out was because you saw it in the store? that's what I HATE about the internet. we now get info like 6 months or more in advance to get all hyped up about figures, and then get dissappointed when they don't come out on time or look different than proto pics. I guess I'll just go bury my head in the sand, and whenever I peek my head up if there's a bt ginrai around, I'll be happy, and if not I'll just pretend I never heard of them.

    Maybe when Takara announces the next re-issue next week they will shed some light on the release status of BT optimus.

    These preorders have always been up and don't change the fact that no images of either of this figures were in the Japanese magazine scans provided by Fan 2 Fan earlier this month along with figures scheduled for a March release. Takara never solicited Ginrai and Black Convoy to stores in Japan to begin with. The only information we ever got came from online import stores.

    ok but back to the original question...........is bt optimus cancelled? And if so why can we preorder it? Is is cause they made so many and must sell? What? Please explain. Answer directly guys please don't go off on a whim, and talk about earlier post. Just say yes it's canceled and the reason or no that's a rumor. Direct quesion, Direct answer. That would be awesome..... please lets keep the e-penis in the pants.

    Takara never told retailers he was going to be released, thus something that was not announced cant be cancelled, since it wasnt solicited in the first place

    In the end, unless Takara gives retailers the order sheet for him, then no one will get it ever since there´s not current plans to produce him

    Many stores still are taking preorders for a fictional figure, at least until Takara says "Hey! were going to make it in the next couple of months", but as of today, those retailers should take down their preorders...

    As of last week, F2F havent heard anything from Takara about upcoming figures, so most likely BBTS got a message from Takara or another source about new info given next week, most likely Ryan from F2F too

    Last I knew Nevermore was still waiting for a independant confirmation of the news he got from F2F... I don't know if he got it or not.

    Until Takara makes an official announcement one way or the other, Ill be highly skeptical.
