    I don't understand these processing threads. Doesn't everyone who's preordered said products get the email telling them that they've arrived and are being processed?

    Regardless I'm glad they're in. Can't wait to see em in person in a few days

    Gah! I'm not ready. Haven't decided if I need one or two.

    It's something to talk about. I also check here more often then I check my email due to spam so this info is valuable.

    What are the chances BBTS will have not-Reflector in stock before the end of the month? :confused:

    Well, sometimes not everyone is processing. Look at the Warpath cases. Also, if they got enough in, and you haven't preordered, they usually go on sale, so this way you know, hey I can order this because I saw reviews or whatever.

    I haven't got a processing notice. I didn't order my Warcry until 2 days ago, so I'm probably near the bottom of the shipping list

    Exactly, back when United Scourge and Rumble/Frenzy 1st came in, my Scourge processed, however my R&F are still on preorder.

    I wish. The 8 case of the warpath I think really shed light on the fact that they get to you when they get to you. Some people thought first come first serve and stuff like that, but doesn't work that way unfortunately.

    It can get annoying and you can tell if they over sell their preorders from these threads. I just hope they don't oversell their preorders on Reflector.

    Alucard, I know we discussed this before, and I may have missed some data collection since, but when did we confirm that BBTS is filling as you described?

    edit:: btw, I would be fully behind and supporting your claim, if you have some solid evidence, as in, you said you were going to do a thread that asked everyone:

    1. When did you order
    2. What did you order (1, 3, 8)
    3. When was it processed

    well, officially I did not post a thread asking this question.

    But take a look at the warpath case thread. People are posting when they order and when they processed. The first time around more 3 packs were getting filled. The second time around, it was extremely random.

    Now people can be full of it, but there are people saying they ordered last week and it processed and there are other users who order 3 weeks ago and still nothing. So to me it's pretty much confirmed.

    Hm, I see. Well, if that convinces you, that's fine. Personally, I would have liked a much more controlled data collection and a bigger sample size to make a judgment call like that. Oh well =)

    Yeah, no way to get that unfortunately. BBTS won't say, hey we get to it when we get to it you know. They will always tell you that they do first come first serve.

    So I think this is the best we get. I could always start that thread if you like, but at this point not sure what good it would do. People who are already pissed will get more pissed and BBTS will get tons of e-mails. Maybe that would change BBTS's policy, but who knows. They have so many toys they sell we don't even know what % are TF sales.

    The second problem is that once you order is filled BBTS doesn't post your order date anymore. People would have to dig into their emails to determine order date. Personally, my email's a mess.

    And has anybody else other then Fosterlager said they put in an order last week and got Warpath this week? Fost, could you be mistaken?

    EDIT: Aw crap, this isn't the Warpath thread.
