    Yep. Some time this month, I'd check back sometime next week. Many folks in Japan will be busy in the next few days, week, with their Bonen-kais (year-end parties); I figure the same is true for Maketoys too, and this will be followed up with Shogatsu (New Year's Day) though in Japan, New Year's is no small deal; it's a three day event which mostly focuses on family, think Christmas taking place three days in a row (with a lot less presents...though there is New Year's money if you are under the age of 20 and unemployed).

    "Busy" - Translation: Too hung over to stand up, and fervently hoping that my coworkers' cell phone cameras weren't working that night...

    I believe this update was posted and actually front paged earlier this week, it was referencing the G2 prime trailer fix.

    Just don't buy their stuff from BBTS. If the Tanker is any indication, BBTS gets Maketoys stuff later then everyone else. Everyone except BBTS and TFSource have that tanker for sale already and in stock.

    I'm still waiting for CP to ship out their Tankers. I must have misread a few posts but I thought a representative of the company said they had theirs in stock and were shipping last week (?). That's what I get for initially preordering from BBTS, switching to CP, and then missing the first wave :(

    Not sure if I read the above correctly, but all I know is I'm still waiting for BBTS to get theirs in. I'd cancel and order elsewhere, but I have a POL brewin' already.

    got mine from CP already. but i guess i was part of that first wave.

    i was able to get most of the head onto the peg without boiling it. i think it can go further down if i did in fact boil it. but it looks like i have more head articulation this way...and a hella skinny neck. lol.

    TFSource had them instock not that long ago... *reads website* ah they're waiting for a restock.

    Also if you read the Battle Tanker page on BBTS it states:

    So BBTS is doing the smart thing and waiting for the head kit to be ready so they can include it with all orders, instead of having to deal with it afterwards. If anything this makes me want to get ALL of my third party pre-orders through BBTS.
