    Same here :) 

    ...too bad Shadow Commander didn't show up. It now simply says, "4th Quarter"...

    Yeah, that's kind of a bummer. Did you see they jacked up the price to $199.99? Jeebus! Also I call dirty pool on BBTS jacking up the pre-order price on all of the NOT-Insecticons. For shame. :lol 

    Thanks for the info!

    You may have been looking at the old listing for Shadow Commander, it was a bundle set with Classics Nemesis Prime for $199. The preorder price for the reissued Shadow Commander was $129 (well, back in July it was $97).

    Ah, I see. Thanks. Yeah I pre-ordered this back on July 25th for $94.99. Still though, jacking up the Insecticons is not cool. Of course that makes everyone else (Toy Arena, TFSource, etc.) jack up their price. Except Captured Prey...I'll stand by my man. :lol

    Even then, if you preordered, you don't have to pay the higher price.

    Not gonna start that debate though; just hope that Automaton gets it in soon. They can be hit or miss re: how quickly they get third party stuff in.

    Ya Automaton is very hit and miss as to when they get their stuff. I've just come to expect them to get stuff a little later and when it does come sooner that is a bonus.

    Mario is a stand up guy with AWESOME customer service so my money goes to him.

    The OOH he added to his site made it easy to give him all my purchases. Even though he follows the bBTS prices :(  but all the bigger sites do now :(  :(

    No, I know. I'm just saying they increased the Insecticons but the other in-stock Casuality figures remain the same. Backfiery at the minimum shouldn't have been jacked up before it's initial release. But it's obviously a business move to make a few more bucks off of peolpe who will now pre-order all 3 together. No biggie, just an observation.

    i think part of the problem is demand for the insecticons is much higher and people are buying multiples.increasing demand while depleting stock. also its been a while since the preorders went up and the us dollar has weakend in that time so the increase(ill get flamed for this) is justified. even without the price increase we would still be paying 48$ for a scout/small deluxe figure.

    Maketoy isn't FP...so....what else has FP shown off today? :O

    Anyway, I guess it's about time again to shell out for these guys. As cool as Stormbomb looked, he was too fiddly and a disappointment compared to how solid Thunder Shred was. I hope third time's the charm.
