    Is it just me or do the preorders on Big Bad Toy Store seem to sell out quick. Its happened to me twice now first with the preorder for Reveal the Shield Jazz and Tracks and now with Kup, wreckgar, Perceptor. By the time I check my email with in two hours of them sending it they are sold out. I did get the 4 pack with Jazz and Tracks although i'm not interested in the other two. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I missed out on Jazz and Tracks. I guess checking email boxes several times a day are a must as in this case.

    People are just fast, I guess. Usually the pre-orders are sold out for a while, but they go back up again in a few hours. I've gotten a few figures reserved late like that, but I've always gotten them on the first shipment that goes out.

    i missed out on the singles, but i pre-order the sets.
    just 5 minutes ago, i managed to get all the ones i wanted.
    the only drawback to the sets is that there's usually 1 figure i had hoped to avoid in them.

    like the 4 pack with Wreck-Gar, Optimus Prime, Perceptor and BumbleBee, i didn't want BumbleBee.

    with another 4 pack i just pre-ordered, i wasn't wanting WfC Cliffjumper, but it's okay.

    lastly i got the 4 pack with Tracks, Jazz, Mindset and Fallback. not sure i wanted Fallback.

    i may keep CJ and give BB to my niece.


    personally, if it saves me racing around sites and stores, i can buy an extra figure.
    you can't sleep around BBTS if you want single figures, though.

    also, I don't trust the email newsletter. i get mine a few days after items are posted, usually.

    Don't worry. Unless you live out of the country, you will be able to pick these up shortly at your local Walmart for near half the price of the pre order.
