    Wanted to post this to see if this happened for anyone else aswell. So pretty much at the last minute, BBTS got Maketoys Battle Tanker in, which is what I was waiting for so I could ship my loot. The awesome thing is, is I will be getting all this stuff TOMORROW!!!! They shipped my stuff pretty much only 2 days ago. This has definitely made my Christmas. Has this happened for anyone else? Happy holidays to everyone by the way!

    So BBTS gets props because the postal system works. Cool.

    Given that you are on another planet according to your location, that's pretty impressive. What shipping method did they use? Inter-universe 3 days?

    Wow, thats awesome dude, especially given that the postal system is a POS when it comes to actually moving stuff within a decent amount of time.

    4 Business days? Pretty standard.

    1 - Tuesday, your item was shipped out (2 days ago)
    2 - Wednesday = Yesterday (1 day ago)
    3 - Thursday = Today
    4 - Friday = Tomorrow.

    Yeah its just the shipping service working. My question is how long did it take for them to process and ship your order since thats all they have control over.

    Okay, one, sarcasm, not appreciated as this was an innocent post pertaining to the fact I'm getting my stuff BEFORE CHRISTMAS when shipping during the holidays is beyond crazy and usually slow. I'm not usually one for holiday spirit and all that dumb shit, but come on people. Really? At least try to pretend to give a shit.

    :-\

    They were just playing man. It's not a must that people must care for others getting toys as if it were themselves getting them... and most (even thought there are some) wouldn't make a thread just to say they're getting a toy in the mail on time. So, that comes with some goofing in and of itself. :) 

    I'm glad you're getting your stuff in time to enjoy it on the holiday weekend, but honestly, even if you got it after Christmas, would it really make it less enjoyable? I hope not.

    Happy holidays dude. Enjoy the toys and hopefully being able to GIVE joy to others as well.

    BBTS got their Tankers in on Monday, and I had it Tuesday morning.

    Mad props to the postal service!

    Sounds like both bbts and the postal system are doing a good job. With tanker and Christmas I imagine bbts is pretty busy processing orders. The postal service is pretty dang busy (at least my local one is) so that is a pretty quick turn around imo.

    Congrats on getting your loot before Christmas!

    Hey OP, would you mind posting what you think of Tanker too? I'm ridiculously on the fence about it.

    It's not you, there just certain people on this board that will never give bbts credit for anything but crap on there prices whenever possible. There are alot of retailers that can't process orders that fast or get them in the mail quickly so I understand your excitement.

    Based on MMM post they were processed fast. BBTS has awesome service and people can crap on their prices but i will always be willing to pay a bit more to them after my experience with a broken out of package MP Ultra Magnus. The process was hassel free and at no cost to me cause i just shipped him back to them while i was out taking care of other things so no gas money spent for a separate trip to ship him.

    I have no Beef with BBTS. Was just messin with your location :p 

    TJ D= I am surprised that you don't have multi-sets of this :p  I think its a worthy purchase. Most of the "QC" involving the head isn't really "QC" just people not knowing to read before installation.

    Again, in the spirit of the holidays (why in the hell am I in the spirit anyway o_O ?) I do apologize for my saltyness earlier. I guess I am a tad excited since this is getting to me so fast and I still haven't recieved my Armor Plus Rowen from BIJ. TJ's post leveled me a bit. So how about we turn this thread into a "What are you getting from Xmas?" discussion? Along with Tanker, my POL consists of TFC Scrapper and Hook, also a reissue Devastator (tis the season for devastation! ;D) also getting a Episode I preview figure of Mace Windu I've wanted for who knows how long, and the Ralph McQuarrie concept Artoo and Threepio set. CAN'T WAIT!!!

    Glad you're getting your loot in time for x-mas!! I know how gratifying it can be when things show up sooner than you expected them to.
