    Sorry but Joel has lost it lately. He used to have great prices. But lately he has jacked a lot of them up. Sorry Joel but I'm ordering elsewhere.

    Holy crap, that sold out fast! At $20, I thought it'd take longer.

    I'll be looking at JRSToyworld.com, but Bill hasn't put them up for preorder yet, or at least he hadn't earlier this evening. Also, HTS still has Mirage in stock.

    Yeah I was able to order Mirage from BBTS but I hope I can find Jetfire single cause I already got Prime and Megs today.

    I preordered the Prime/Megatron/Jetfire 3-pack because I read Jetfire was going to be shortpacked, and because I currently have a crapload of store credit at bbts.

    Well he did say in the newsletter on the front page they were shortpacked. So with low supply and high demand basic economics puts them at a higher price. $20 and $15 is about the same price as always with the BBTS Deluxe preorders.

    You guys think somebody else online will have Jetfire sold by himself? My wife won't be happy with me ordering a $69 set of toys, lol.

    He sold out a $10 toy for twice the price in no time flat. I wouldn't call that losing it. I'd call that doing pretty well for himself.

    Seriously though, when that many people want the toy, and there's so few of the toy to go around, you'd be crazy not to raise the price. The man ain't runnin' a charity over there....

    BBTS is reliable, has good customer service, and has the Pile of Loot. 'Nuff said.

    Grimlock seriously sold out fast, though. I'll bet the 3-pack with Jetfire is the next to go.
