    I am in no way challenging the site or any particular moderator but what happened to the thread about the boxset? Was it removed at Hasbro's request or is it simply an error with the boards? It's still listed on BBTS but only substandard versions remain.


    Just looking for a little info.

    Curious, it was removed off Seibertron(off the frontpage that is) too I believe. Interesting...

    That's interesting considering BBTS still has it listed. Based on the pricing I'm pretty sure this set is coming to the US.

    I'm glad someone else noticed; I reloaded the front page 13 times before I gave up. I'm taking a guess and saying Hasbro has something to do with it?

    Glad I'm not the only one that noticed this. I thought I was going crazy (or even more so). I'm betting someone from Hasbro got word and did not approve of all the talk about this 2-pack. Kind of silly if you ask me. The cat is already out of the bag at this point.

    We were asked to remove it by BBTS.

    ....okay. And I trust they have removed their listing then for the set? Honestly, this is all pointless if they still have the preorder up.

    Thanks for the update. Any idea what that means for those of us who already pre-ordered?

    Maybe BBTS got in trouble with Hasbro for it or something of the like.

    It's removed from their site, I just checked. I tried searching and cannot find the listing either.

    My pre-order hasn't been cancelled though...yet

    This is a very weird situation here.

    Does anyone know why BBTS wanted it taken down?

    I believe it was a mistake on their part. It was mentioned that it was supposed to be a non-public entry waiting for announcement on a future date.

    I'm sure a cancellation of preorders will follow. Hasbro clearly did not want this information leaked now. That's the best I can figure.

    The direct link is still active. It's just not available via the search bar.

    No, it's still there...for now I guess. I have the link but, won't be posting it here. Don't want to risk reprecussions. Strange situation though.

    Thanks for the info Razerwire...I guess we will just wait and see if the pre-orders get cancelled...or how long until they do :D 

    Hopefully this will get "officially" released a little bit later.

    Sorry, I didn't have the direct link to try anymore so I couldn't go that route.

    Just main page, transformers section and search bar.

    Still shows up in my Preorders page...but (tick tock) we will see.

    Either way I am sure this will get re-released soon
