    Actually, it's:

    Per the rules of the forum (See here):

    Please do not post a new thread everytime a different store puts up a preorder or gets an item in-stock, unless it's the first listing of a toy or of a toy that we haven't seen/heard of before. This includes listings from Hasbro Toy Shop pre-orders and any other vendors.

    A mod will be along to lock this or move it to the Toy Discussion Forum shortly.

    While I normally agree with this, I think the amount of turmoil surrounding the original BotCon seekers and now their availability (albeit slightly altered) online, warrants some news.

    OT-Purchased! With my pile of loot, it was only $2 more than retail+tax.

    I think he's implying that they won't be in stock long enough to even be part of a sale.

    Which is most likely true.

    I'm debating right now to pay for my pre-order that's in my POL or to wait until I find it at a store and cancel my pre-order.

    Decisions....

    It's not a pre-order if it's in stock, they've probably processed to charge you already. If you cancel the order once it's been paid, you only get BBTS store credit, fyi.

    TRU has these for 11.99 I think. I ordered the wave, so that makes them the same price via BBTS plus shipping. They raelly aren't making a killing, and I'm glad I ordered them and can stop checking TRU 5 minutes after they open to find out that in that 5 minutes they sold out.

    I thought a card was required to make a preorder?

    Nope. I think at one point they did require one, and I know that you can currently have a card on your account, but you no longer need to have one to make a preorder.

    There's an option that allows you to choose the payment method when the item becomes available, and it started around the time they started taking PayPal as a payment method.

    It's how I preorder. If I had to have the money upfront all the time, I'd be flat broke.

    You don't have to have the money up front, you're not charged until the item comes in, for their insurance I am sure. It must be a somewhat recent practice then, as their FAQ still says you need one to do pol. SHRUG.
