    So I guess Amazon IS sold out, because the deal as I understood was that amazon got the first crack at it and then BBTS got it after they sold out of preorders. It happened a lot earlier than expected..

    ... was that actually proven? I thought it was just conjecture.

    Well, if amazon never puts it back up, it'll be proven. :lol  It was a shared exclusive and it seemed weird that amazon was allowed to sell it but BBTS had to wait til sept. Now BBTS is putting it up after the amazon one sold out after a long stretch. It just seems logical, I guess. But no, never proven.

    Funny, people accuse BBTS of over charging on international shipping, but what they're quoting for shipping me a G2 Bruticus is only very slightly more than what Amazon are quoting.

    conjecture - amazon probably got a lot of g2 bruticus preorders this week after people couldnt get their hands on an SDCC exclusive.

    Not sure why they don't want the link posted. I was gonna order a second one through them to keep boxed. But all this cloak and dagger shit is annoying. Looks like I'll just get one.

    Best guess is that the aren't planning on this being the final pre-order price.

    They're showing 650 available for preorder as of 30 seconds ago.



    conjecture with a bit of bias - I think some of the video reviews out may have made people reconsider paying the going rate on the SDCC version, Aside from that, before SDCC started
    there seemed to be fairly strong support for the G2 color anyway (?)
