    Grotusque is up for order on HTS.com if anyone is interested.
    Hopefully the Arcee shortage doesn't manifest here too:

    The Deluxes go for about $16 and the Titan Master goes for about $6...I assume the other $3 is for the packaging

    Deluxe ($15) + Die-Cast Headmaster ($5) + Exclusive ($5) = ~$25
    At least that's how it works in my head. :cool:

    According to the nycc panel,
    grotusque will be available through a retail partner in about a month, like arcee.
    Don't panic yet.

    Yeah, as quick as this figure came and went I'm rather glad it wasn't a Deluxe or Voyager version of Scorponok.


    Meanwhile I'm still waiting for Overlord who I ordered on BBTS LAST SATURDAY!
    It was shipped via Fedex and then transferred to USPS with an estimated arrival of next Tues.........................

    I don't recall recall BBTS shipping taking this damn long. This shit is torture :mad: .

    Ive ordered 2 items recently from BBTS, and both took well over a week to arrive. Neither FedEx nor the USPS were particularly fast and combine them and it’s “Ugh”

    Wait. You're both in PA and it's taking this long? Something's not right. FedEx Smartpost travels via FedEx Ground for the transport portion of the shipment, then handed over to the USPS for the delivery portion. It's only 2-3 days from BBTS, 4 if you count the handover to the post office. It shouldn't be a week plus, it just shouldn't something's not right and it's got to be a FedEx issue.

    Case in point: I ordered Hascon battery pack Optimus and it came in 2 days (bordering on 3) when it should've been 1. It was partially because HTS put the order in late, but it was also because FedEx didn't pick up the order until like 11:30 at night. But, my Grotusque came in 1 business day (technically 2) because FedEx actually shipped it correctly this time. I live on the OH/PA border just outside of Erie, it's like 30ish miles and Fairview handles my deliveries. Usually they go to Pittsburgh or Zelienople before they're handed off to my local hub for delivery. This is what happened with Grotusque and things went pretty swimmingly. Optimus ended up going to Grove City Ohio, near Columbus in the south central part of the state, then all the way back to Fairview in NWPA for delivery. Could've saved me an entire day it if wasn't for FedEx stupidly sending it to the wrong location.

    If they do that with FedEx Ground, I can only imagine what they do with Smartpost. It also doesn't help that the USPS doesn't really want to honor their contract with FedEx. Ask any mail carrier (I can, my grandfather was one and my father in law is currently one) and they'll tell you "I hate doing their work for them. We don't get extra pay, but we work extra hours and we have to carry extra stuff. FedEx doesn't feel like delivering to you, so they make us do it." and that's the problem. FedEx drags their feet, then the carriers don't want to do it and this happens.

    This is part of the reason why I pay for more expensive shipping. I completely get that $4.00 shipping is a fantastic come on and it really does save you money, but you lose time and patience in the end.

    Also there is a lot more paint apps on the titan master alone. This is more like a Takara release of a stripped down US release. Their stuff usually goes for $40 US, $25 US is a deal PLUS the die cast head.
