    me too! i held out from ordering ebay until joel posted the order up - i had a credit and a pile of loot there, so i ended up getting a pretty good deal on it all around - on a side note, they also have the entire first wave of classics up for preorder as well

    This gets posted under a minute after I use paypal to buy him on ebay...

    You can get him marginally cheaper on ebay, but shipping from overseas will take longer.

    I'm still waiting to see what I have coming to me. I know at least one from SDCC, I'm hoping one from HTS and one from TCC ... but no response to my E-mail at TCC yet.

    Bam!

    I just pre-ordered the whole shebang, plus an extra Bumblebee and Starscream for recoloring.

    It was a little more than I wanted to pay, but I ordered it anyway cause I wanted one so bad. I'm happy I finally have one secured. I'm surprised they aren't sold out already.

    I bought a Nemesis Prime from Hong Kong and got it in about a week.

    I bought mine overseas and had it in 6 days. Not only that, I got it about 3 weeks ago. He's cool and I'm glad I have him, but spending more than $20 for an Alt is always a let down for me. Especially since I could have bought a BT for the same price as Nemesis Prime.

    Funny how an attendee sells on Ebay for $45 he is labeled a scalper, but if an online retailer charges the same or more it is just part of the business. I have no problem with any of it, but think it's kind of weird.

    I'm just glad I ordered from overseas and avoided the whole fiasco with HTS. Now it's on to Mirage, but unfortunately in his home state of Michigan he has been just that... A mirage.

    This figures....I found out BBTs would have some in stock a week after my massive pile of loot was shipped to me. Besides, I still feel like it's being scalped so I guess I'll pass and then cry later when I can't find one. I wonder if Hasbro gave 'em some or if they had staff standing in line to get multiples....

    And.... ordered. That sucker is going to be expensive later, so it's far better to bite the bullet and get him now.

    I was kind of excited until I saw how much they are.

    I'm glad I was able to get two last week for $90 shipped ... from Japan.

    Pre-ordered two of each of the classics, and would have pre-ordered three if I thought I could swing it at that time of year. Hopefully I'll find extras around town when I want them. I'm all about taking the airbrush and tools to these suckers.

    Nemesis? Not so much. Good for those looking for him though.

    I won't buy a repaint Alternator at that price. I'll pay the $25 plus shipping if it gets relisted at HTS or something else Hasbro offers by way of apology for this fiasco. I have Mirage and it's the better toy anyway.

    Picked up one. This is my fallback in case my phone order at HTS didn't go through. To me, getting it from BBTS at the higher price doesn't bother me as much, as I can trust them more than some faceless Ebay entity that's on another continent.

    Bah, should've waited a bit. Could have ordered more Unleashed snowtroopers with it.
