    Just wondering what's going to be your first Transformer of 2012. I'm starting off this year in a bad way. I just opened Generations Thundercracker that I ordered last summer from BBTS when I noticed his missiles are missing. :(

    No chance for a refund or return at this stage. That is the first and LAST time I order from BBTS. Whoever said QC is fixed on Thundercracker is going to get thumped.

    For me, the last from 2011 was the Encore Minibot set. And I hope the first of this year will be Rodimus, Sideswipe and Encore Jazz, already shipped from Robotkingdom. Yes, G1 all the way!!

    BBTS probably had at least two hundred Generations Thundercrackers on hand.

    It's not economically viable for them to check every single toy before it ships.

    There's an onus on you to check it as soon as it arrives at the destination address. It's not their fault the four of them were sittng in Ireland
    for the last several months before they were posted on to you.

    And for the record, BBTS are actually pretty good at replacing missing or broken parts, so long as a fault is pointed out to them within reasonable time.

    Fixed QC on Thundercracker: I'd imagine people were talkling about ill fitting parts. Not missing acessories. That can happen to any toy. QC problems or not.

    My first will most likely be Generations Kup, or HA Basic Icepick, who is the second HA Basic I REALLY want (I own the other one).

    Possibly Sky Shadow (to see about converting into Cybertron Slipstream-Upgraded form), if not that then Prime Bulkhead.

    That's more your fault than anyone elses for waiting so long to inspect/open him, not BBTS. But, if that is your last time ordering from BBTS cause you made a mistake, your loss.

    For me, it'll be DotM Que as the first new one to cross my doorstep. First one opened is Deluxe Leadfoot. Soundwave turned up last week too :D 

    ... yeah, I be bragging now.

    BBTS needs to ship Maketoy Battle Tanker to me, and I ordered Alternators Skids and Universe Legends Warpath from a board member here (hopefully I'll be able to pay for them in a day or two and I'll receive them in ten days for so).

    For my first purchase of the year, I was thinking about buying the Perfect Effect Rumble and Frenzy two pack for $50. Are these two worth it for this amount of price, or is it better to spend more to get the United set?

    I have a box waiting for me at the post office. It contains TakaraTomys Movie Masterpiece Starscream, a 4-pack cassette reissue (Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak and Overkill), PCC Sledge&Throttler and ROTF Armorhide deluxe.

    I'll be picking it up on wednesday. I also have Botcon Fisitron coming my way but I am quite certain he will arrive later then that.

    To bad about your Thundercracker missiles.

    Here's my first buys for 2012, this afternoon:

    Couple Gen SkyShadows. They rang up at Wallys for $6 each, so why the heck not right?

    For awhile I've been interested in Cyberverse Sentinel Prime, and for awhile I've been interested in the Cyberverse Ark. Seeing them for this price was a no brainer!:

    Started off well, got KOLD Blue Konvoy KO, DIY Black Powerglide, Headrobot Bludgeon head and scored some official FP missiles for City Commander.

    Just need something official now.
