    Interesting.

    As an aside, they've filled at least some orders already - I have him sitting in my PoL right now.

    I ordered, but I cringed at the price...I guess at this stage of the game, I'd pay that price either way though...... Also got Perceptor.

    All that's left that I want is Wreck-Gar & Grapple.

    Seeing as there are currently 280+ available with this new preorder I'd like to know why mine hasn't been processed yet...

    "Last chance"?

    Scare-mongering much? People were saying that about Wheeljack and Wincharger too - and now they're both up on HTS. The toys are trickling out slowly. Give it time.

    Windcharger was on HTS for like 15 minutes before he sold out. And never came back. So, I don't know...

    Well, to be fair, I don't blame them TOO too much.

    Keep in mind he comes in a box with Thundercracker/Wheeljack predominantly represented (2 Warpaths, 3 TCs, 3WJs if memory serves). And keep in mind most people who wanted Thundercracker/Wheeljack would probably have ordered the ones in the previous wave's case assortment.

    Thus, BBTS could potentially end up with a lot of TC/WJs that they have to clearance eventually, thus earning them a loss. And Warpath's a high demand figure.

    Really, if one is upset, they can always just order the set of 3 figures in the wave and save money per figure. It's what I did.

    "Never came back". Again - he was in stock about a week ago, yes? It typically takes them that long or a little longer to get a figure back in stock. Grappel's been out of stock at least that long since the last time he went out of stock. Scourge & co. did the same thing for a bit. They've no doubt ordered more and he'll be back in stock as soon as they arrive.

    Jeez - I remember when we had to wait for things to appear at Target to get the new toys. Fans these days want everything IMMEDIATELY :p

    This just looks to me like he won't be scarce at retail at all.

    Difference being that Grapple and company have been in stock a few times. At least since I've been keeping track and paying attention. That's how I got mine. He came back in stock after he was sold out. Same thing for Strafe and now Lugnut. Windcharger was there and hasn't been back since.

    Well, it's not that I want it immediately, I just don't want to miss out again. 15 minutes isn't a long time. I can wait how ever long it takes. I just don't want to blink and he's gone if he does indeed come back into stock.

    24.99 for one? That's insane. I'll wait for retail.

    Is BBTS picking up EVERYTHING from Hasbro?
