    6) Encore #19 Big Mission set #3 and Disney Label Donald Duck
    ===============================================================
    The ever popular Encore series continues with Encore #19, Cassettes Big Mission set #3! This set includes some very popular cassettes: Frenzy, Rumble, Laserbeak and Overkill! Three of the four cassettes in this set have never been reissued before, so a great set overall. Also available for preorder and scheduled for a November 2009 release is the next in the Disney Label Series: Donald Duck! It appears he changes from a VW Bug to Donald and back. The Disney Label Mickey Mouse was a big hit and Donald should deliver up to the same level of expectations! Furthermore his VW bug is not just reminiscent of Herbie, but everyone's favorite G1 Minibot Bumblebee as well!

    I'm very tempted to preorder buster Prime, but geez that's pricey. If there was no chance of a domestic release, I would go for it, but we will see.

    That's hardly their fault. I don't think BBTS has got theirs in yet either.

    Exactly. TFSource, BBTS and the like don't have any control over when FP decides to ship.

    As to the price, it depends on whether Hasbro eventually makes a "Premium" version. If there's no Premium on this side, then the $85 isn't that bad of a price at all.

    Yeah but considering ToyArena and a hand full of other sites have shipped them and have them in stock currently, I'm calling shame on BBTS and TFsource, I emailed tfsource this morning about the superion kit waiting on my response

    You can call all you want, however they can't help it they have not received their shipments yet from over seas. BBTS and Tfsource are father in the US the Toyarena. They are in California.

    I do wonder why this shipment went by boat.

    Do retailers always import by boat? I can't imagine that's the case, or else long delays would be more common

    OK, so I ordered Buster Prime. What was my justicification? Well, I normally buy a few comicon things, but since I didn't want any this year.... well there you go.

    It isn't FP's fault, it's all thanks to TFsource and BBTS picking a slower shipping method.

    BBTS and TFsource BOTH need to learn a lesson about how they get stuff shipped overseas to them. BBTS just lost out on a preorder from me thanks to Toy Arena getting the add-on kit weeks ago, since they splurged on quicker shipping. I'll bet anything I get my set from them before BBTS or TFsource even gets them in.

    If Toy Arena gets their stuff in first all the time, I'm going to go with them from now on.

    I'll probably get the Buster Prime, although I'm disappointed it has the silly mouth rather than the iconic Prime faceplate.

    ...and anyone know why it's called "Buster" Prime? That seems odd, even for the Japanese.
