    No wonder the Bluestreak and Smokescreen busts are more expensive than the normal busts, they're limited to 250.

    Interesting. Toyrocket has the Bluestreak and Smokescreen busts listed as shipping in 1-2 weeks, while BBTS has them arriving in May. Toyrocket's listing may be a typo, me thinks.

    The last time I checked, Toyrocket had only Bluestreak and Smokescreen shipping in 1-2 weeks. It was listed that way right next to each pic. But, they still had Prowl and the 3-pack shipping in May. Maybe it's been fixed now. Here's how it was listed:

    Availability: preorder - approx ship date: 1 - 2 weeks

    I knew it was probably too good to be true, though!

    Oh.....you're right. My bad.

    I thought the 3-pack May date applied for all the busts. That is kinda weird that the 3-pack order would come out in May and the individual ones in April.

    Yeah, it is kinda weird. I think it's probably a misprint. I'll be very surprised if I get Smokescreen before May.

    That sucks, because as far as I know BBTS will only give you store credit if you cancel your orders on merchandise that's already paid for. Guess you could always sell them on this board... or turn to eBay... which given the newness of the items might net you some more money...

    Well yeah, but if they're currently in your pile of loot then your credit card on file with BBTS has already been charged for the items. They charge your preorders once they arrive and ship when you tell them too instead of right away... that's how the pile works.

    Yup, what Laser_Optimus said. They're in your loot, but they're already paid for.
