    I've had some crappy luck with robots lately.

    I got FP Protector, his foot came broken. BBTS replaced thankfully

    I bought a Botcon 10 Streetwise off the lovely Vangelus and had it shipped to my dads office (my apartment complex lost a package once) apparently it came because I found a xmas card from Vangelus. But my pops rearranged some desks in his office and Streetwise is just.... Gone. Possibly thrown out on accident.

    Bought a ko henkei Sunstorm on ebay. Never came, seller is giving me a refund.

    Got Perfect Effect Ejector the other day, he is missing his gun.BBTS is sending a replacement.

    I mean aside from the Botcon fig, everything is cool. Hoping he'll still pop up. But I can't help but laugh at my luck lately :p 

    p Edit: oh, and apparently my area was skipped when it came to PCC Grimstone and Steamhammer. They were found in all my neighboring states but not here. Not canceling my preorder for those two at bbts anytime soon

    At least you have a card from Vangelus....is it signed? :tongue: 

    Hope your Streetwise will turn up somewhere. That really sucks. It's great to hear BBTS is coming through for you though!

    If it's any consolation. you're not the only one lately.

    My reissue Hound that I've had since 04 recently lost his oil can.

    My G1 Ultra Magnus only had his left large fist since my cousin gave him to me back in 91. Finally got a right one at Auto Assemble 6 months ago and now the left one has disappeared.

    Was given a Device Label Tigatron as a gift a few months back. He fell of the shelf last week and his jaw came off. I picked it up to try and reattach it and the slaggin thing broke further.

    I'd pay good money for a card signed by THE Internet personality. eBay that thing and use the money to replace Streetwise.

    I never saw that wave of PCC either. Or anything new in a while. Darn bad luck.

    Sucks to hear that bro, I hope things get better.

    Maybe you need to take a break for a week/month from getting new ones, and focus on the ones you got, take some pics, spruce em up from dust. Just try to get your mind off the bad events.

    Oh, I'm not all bummed. The Streetwise thing sucks, but I'm hopeful it will turn up. The other stuff was taken care of. Like I said, it's just funny :)
