    Got mine as well. I honestly wasn't expecting him this soon.

    Edit: Meant that I got my BBTS email.

    Boy, guess I should've ordered from somewhere other than TFSource... I've been waiting on Noir to ship my TR Wave 4 deluxes and legends... That has been a tough wait!

    I went with TFS because the original releases looked like Noir would come in before Constructor and I wanted to save on shipping. The opposite happened and I have orders stacked up at BBTS and none at TFS. Now I have to decide if it is worth just paying the $10 and shipping it out when it comes in.

    Well if rumors are true, we may be seeing Wave 5 of Titans Return show up in the next couple weeks... but me personally, I was going to pull the trigger and ship as soon as Noir came in stock, but the TR Wave 4 hit first, so I am waiting for free shipping. I shipped Rioter by himself when he hit, but Striker Manus came as part of a big stack of mine, which they screwed up and shipped me the wrong stuff. Took 3 weeks to get my Manus and the correct order to me.... :mad:

    As much as I like Tf source I've found that they typically get everything last. They also take about a week to arrive after shipment for me compared to BBTS only taking two days.

    Yeah, it seems like that a lot, but I love free shipping, and personally I feel their website is more user friendly, with a better stock of TF's overall. I have shopped many times at BBTS, and I just can't help feel that I am wasting money on all the free shipping I could have had.

    I have looked at their website, and I am just not a fan of its format. I may have to give them another chance.

    TFS is take bad at getting some stuff in, especially TFC, but they usually get Maketoys stuff in pretty fast (I remember they got Vulcan before BBTS, because I had Vulcan preordered at BBTS). If BBTS got their 10-day notice and TCP expects it Monday, I'm sure TFS will have it next week.

    Question is, do I ship it and TFM Dragstrip, or wait for GT's Optimus?

    Looks pretty nice. I really like the armored up look. Looks bad ass!

    It's funny. I was just reading another thread and it was rife with complaints about TFS getting their stuff in late. Then I jump to this thread about a completely unrelated figure and it's like I never left the other thread.

    For most stuff, including MakeToys, I typically go with TCP because even if BBTS and TFS get it in roughly the same timeframe, TCP is the one that will ship it out the same day it arrives. The other two shops have taken up to a week to ship me something that shows in stock on their site. TFS and TCP both have distribution points close to me so either one would theoretically be about the same shipping time, so it must come down to the TCP order processing team and customer service focus that makes the difference in getting orders out the door quickly.

    I'd say ship it with Dragstrip. The lack of reviews makes me think we're still a few weeks (maybe even months) away from OP EX and it'll be a pretty rough waiting game.

    But some if the Asian stores are supposedly getting their OP EXes in, or listing them as in stock. If that's true, maybe 2-3 more weeks.
