    Ok, so, when will the September pre-orders on BBTS be in, I figure Universe on September 1st, but what about Thundercracker (henkei) and Ultra Magnus's armor upgrade (Classics version)?

    I'm not expecting City Commander in September, honestly. Quite frankly, I'm wondering if I'll even end up with one at all despite pre-ordering since the size of the production run was listed as 'unknown'.

    No offense to FP, but since this is a grassroots efforts of sorts, I'm not expecting it on time. I'm figuring on October or November.

    Oh agreed, that's why I said no offense to them. I won't look down on them at all or harbor any resentment if I get my CC armor a month or two late. Like I said, I expect it and will be surprised and hold them in HIGHER regard if the armor comes in september.

    Like I said, my bigger fear is the 'unknown' production run size.

    I was under the impression that the production run was directly dependent upon the pre-order size. I don't know have a source for that, but I thought I read it on here at one point. It could be just wishful thinking on my part, though!

    I really dont care for the overall LOOK of the UM armor, but thats just me.

    Oh...does anyone know HOW many of the Universe 2.0 wave 2 & 3 BBTS can guarantee as preorders? I mean...how many can they...sell...without running out early? Just curious. Im trying to scrounge up the cash to buy a case of wave 3 early.

    I won't doubt you. I literally started collecting/reading up on transformers again after years in mid-June when I pre-ordered a CC armor set. I hadn't read that, just that the production would be bigger than the original 3000 slated.

    If so, you've eased a little anxiety for me. Even if I don't end up getting a city commander, i'm happy to be collecting again, so whatever.
