    BBTS has mine in my "Pile of Loot" now for over a week. I'm waiting though before I have them shipped as I plan on picking up a few more.

    Mine are in my pile of loot at BBTS, but I believe I got notification they had arrived about two weeks ago.

    EDIT: Gah! I've been Flywheel'ed!

    We got our JBW in last week. My favorite of the group so far is Cheetor.

    Got my Convoy, Black Widow, Megs, Cheetas and Waspitas in today from HLJ.
    I'm in love with all of them, the details are amazing and I've yet to notice any QC issues.

    Bring on Rhinox & Tigatron (and hopefully more)!!!

    When people do start getting these post some reviews in the feedback section, I'm very interested to see how these are.

    These arrive in store today. I got a Product Safety check from Canada Customs this time around so they have been in limbo for about a week. All orders will be shipped out this weekend.

    Thanks Spencer. It's good to know Customs declared my toy spider safe.

    Haven't tried the dvd's yet, but my dvd player is region free anyway.. So I don't know how to tell the difference.
    Anyway I'll try to scan some bios on sunday.

    Well whaddaya know, they ARE region free! I'd just tossed mine aside, assuming it was a Region 2 disc, but your post got me to take a look.

    I can tell you that Dinobot's DVD has the Japanese dub of the episode "The Probe" (not really a Dinobot episode, but oh well), a commercial for these BW reissues, a video tech spec for Dinobot, and a very short ad for the upcoming Michael Bay film (only consists of text, narration, and the familiar eye-over-Earth image)

    My Cheetor has a "black eye" because they fudged the paint around it, which really dampens the deal a bit. Other then that, the four that I got (Cheetor, Waspinator, Dinobot, Blackarachnia) are about as nice as anticipated. Which for a Beast Wars enthusiast like me means it took too long to make it happen and there's still things to be nitpicky about, not to mention I feel somewhat let down that they're still using the same, old molds.

    I took advantage of JRS Toyworlds 15% off sale and picked up the entire first wave. Saved over $30. It was like buy 7 and get 1 free.

    Anyway, they arrived on Saturday and they are simply delicious. Blackarachnia and Cheetor have never looked so good. Dinobot is ok, yet I still prefer the Hasbro 10th anniversary figure.

    All in all you can't go wrong. Hopefully its not too late for anyone else to take part in the sale and get the figues on the cheap.
