    They reopened the preorder just a few hours later. Out of curiosity, I checked right then to see how many were available, and I was able to add 600 to my cart. If that's accurate, it looks like there will be more than enough of these to go around.

    "The edition size is currently unknown, we previously reported that the edition size would be 2000 pieces, but that number is incorrect - we had a miscommunication with the manufacturer."

    ..Hmm. I thought so. 2000 pieces would sell out in minutes. I bet it's way more.

    Yeah wierd that Alt Nemesis Prime and Hot Rod are still considered NEW. They've been out over a year I believe.

    I too am considering cancelling my pre-order for UM's armour so I can just pay at TFSource and get it over with while I have the funds now

    As I understand it, they may be old toys but the ones BBTS are currently selling are newly received stock, hence they have not reduced the price.

    I never understand why people complain that when BBTS has a sale they don't put all stock on sale. Is it not normal practice for shops to put on sale old lines and stock they're having difficulty selling. Why reduce the price on stock that is selling well at normal price? The only shops I've ever known to reduce the price of all products are those that are closing down.

    Everyone bitches about BBTS (for some reason)..............until they actually need something they carry. Then they crap their pants to rush and get it from them. *shakes head in shame*

    I like most of the "big" online stores that sell Transformers. Why you ask? Usually, if one is sold out, the other has it. That's all I care about. And for those that are canceling at one place to order at another.........all I have to ask is WHY? It makes no sense to cancel a preorder that you know you're "guaranteed", then go to another online store that is selling the exact same thing for the exact same price. More power to you, it's your choice. But, if it's something you preorder now, be charged for later, where is the "bad" in this? Also, you know when you preorder anything, most places charge you ahead of time NOT to help you out and "guarantee" anything, but to gain a little interest on the massive amount of money they take in on and item. If they don't have it available for you, they simply refund (but they've already made a small amount from your preorder that you had going for MONTHS on end---Gamestop, anyone?).

    Anyway, not being a dick about any of this--just trying to figure out the reasoning behind dropping one preorder for another and this love/hate relationship with BBTS for most of you (I've been a customer of theirs for 8 years--I've never had a problem and the custom service has always been helpful). I'm not knocking the other stores, as I said, they're all good.
