    ===============================================================
    TFsource is back from Botcon! Another great year, another great Botcon, thanks go out to the entire Botcon staff for all their hard work and the fans for making it a smashing success! Like each year, we have brought back a limited amount of the Botcon exclusives for our customers, so order away before they are sold out. The boxed set looks amazing and there are many desirable figures this year that we still have instock, so order these exclusives before they are sold out. We are also getting caught up since being out, and apologize for any delay to emails or updates to the site while we were at Botcon.

    2) TFcon Exclusive Powered Convoy Available for Sale!
    ===============================================================
    A TFcon Exclusive! This piece was limited to just 500 pieces, and is a recolored version of the popular Classics City Commander Trailer Set! Recolored based on the Powered Convoy Diaclone color scheme, goes great with Classics Prime Cab (not included with the set)! This piece also includes additional silver missiles and launchers not included with the original City Commander. Note: TFsource has a limited amount of these figures available, also there is a Japanese issue planned that includes this trailer with chromed missiles. The packaging and other parts may be changed to differentiate the piece from the TFcon exclusive Powered Convoy piece

    Crazy stupid overpriced toys. Not interested, I could repaint Cyclonus (it would look like crap) and save money.

    How are they guaranteeing the Clear Henkei Mirage figures and the Ghost of Starscream Henkei figure, these two items have cut off dates--Mirage's order date ended weeks ago...

    my beef with them is how they had the superion limb set as available mid may... and then don't say anything to the people who pre ordered about changing the date to june. i even emailed them and they told me that since i'm a customer i don't understand how these things work... last time ordering from them. had the same date problem with my henkei cyclonus. :p . BOOOOOOOOOO

    want a good price for ghost starscream, go to toyarena.

    That sucks, at Botcon I asked if they where buying/ trading because they had stuff I wanted to trade for and they said they where not taking the exclusives and now here they are selling them. Oh well I’m happy with the deal I made with BBTS.

    According to the magazine releasing the images, the order cutoff date was 5/16/09 and the estimated shipping date is sometime in August.

    I'm still wondering how they (this toy company) is planning to meet demand unless of course there IS a set number of items of available (which I'm not seeing in their listing).

    I paid 150 and thought I got a good deal, but no way would I pay that much for these...

    Our price is better than toy arena, and you save $7.95 if you also get the book. $89.95 vs. $89.99 is trivial, but we also offer you the mint box upgrade for $2.00 which guarantees you a better toy packaging.

    We explained to you that the manufacturers push back the release dates all the time and don't update us or anyone else. They also don't give an exact release date, just a month or a quarter and this always changes... We're looking at ways to update customers when release dates update to update our customers, but if the manufacturer doesn't update us or anyone worldwide, when the date gets pushed back to when it is, we won't be able to update you unfortunately.

    Thanks
    Curt

    The same as we do with every other import toy, it's only offered once and we have to preorder many months in advance, guaranteeing us a set quantity unless the manufacturer shorts us. We forecast demand and have so many to sell before it sells out. If you preorder when still available you can pretty much guarantee you will get the toy and you pay the posted price. The earlier you preorder the better off you will be, so we always encourage you to preorder early to avoid missing out or paying a higher price. If you look at the prior limited edition Henkei sets, we sold out of both the henkei thundercracker/skywarp and the henkei dirge/thrust so we would encourage you to preorder as we do not have that many sets left of the Clear Mirage before we're pre-sold out and we won't likely have an opportunity to get more due to the very limited production run and requirement to mail in the coupons which (as you mentioned) has already passed.

    Thanks,
    Curt

    Railguard you always post that our prices are overpriced, yet don't compare us to any other retailers with the same product. For these toys our prices are amongst the best out there, so unless you have a point of comparison you're flaming with no reference. If import toys are too expensive for you, then don't buy import toys.

    Thanks,
    Curt

    We were buying the leozack and the sweeps, we had plenty of the others and did not need them which is what we told everyone.

    We are trying to get more, but even 2 months before release everyone was pre-sold out and Takara/Tomy wouldn't allow any additional orders. If you can pick one up cheap anywhere I would suggest to do so now, of course we hope for a restock but everyone is saying "sold out" unfortunately.

    It would be nice if Takara/Tomy did a second run *fingers crossed*

    Thanks,
    Curt
