    I was going to pass on the United set initially because of the price, but since RTS is coming to an end soon* I started looking for a preorder. BBTS and TFSource are sold out, and I couldn't find a listing on HLJ. Do most stores list these guys again after they receive stock, or will I be SOL?

    *I know these guys will be released sooner or later in the US, Frenzy in whatever packaging/subline, but I'm liking the United set even more since I've seen pics.

    Probably not. The stores tend to have an alotted amount set aside for the preorders to make sure they are filled before they close them. However they usually order a bit more for coverage and purchase.

    I preordered Frenzy and Rumble on HLJ, and I know that they've now listed it as 'discontinued', which means they will most likely not get any more stock in.

    yeah last resort for me that i didnt know about was toy arena and they are sold out now. along with hlj, bbts, tfsource and robot kingdom.

    maybe after release some will relist on the site but you will have to watch like a hawk. maybe some will pop up on ebay. or maybe a seller on the boards will have an extra?

    Thanks alot everyone. Someone sent me a PM with a link to Toyarena's preorder, but I was looking at buying Magmatron too to save on shipping. I checked there FAQ to see if I could, but it wasn't allowed. :( 

    Oh well, it'll probably be relisted soon enough.

    Yeah I posted a link to the preorder at toy arena last night/early this morning after I had preordered mine. Seems like this set if going to be a little hard to get.

    HLJ lists their stock as discontinued when they are out, and they can't confirm when they may get more. It doesn't mean that the manufacturer has ended production, it just means they can't get their hands on any new stock at the time being. Keep checking, they may get more in a few weeks.

    If you want them you better grab them now. They are scarce even in Japan. (I missed out on Laser Prime :( )

    Though TakTom is re-releasing the first wave of United in April, so who knows, those in later waves might also get re-released. But you might not want to bet on that.

    I wanted to get them there, but shipping from them tends to be on the high side, which is why I was going to add another item I'm looking for to make it more worth it. The link was taken down or they sold out in the mean time though. :(
