    Though I was a little worried they'd go the opposite route, it's the approach that made the most sense to me. I know some people were positing that Big Bad would open the package up to split things up and answer the existing single listings that way, but that never made sense to me and is a HORRIBLE precedent to set, even if it's convenient for some. They haven't done it with the figure that included the freebie in previous subscriptions, so it made no sense to start opening stuff up here (let alone the extra time it'd take to open stuff up, split them up, repackage them some way, and then start filling orders). It's also something I'd never want to encourage them to do, given the doors it could start to open up with other things.

    This also provides a framework for what to expect now for the second and third shipments. In that case, I'm hoping the Pretenders come together because those are the only other figures I'd preordered/were interested in, but if not, then oh well for me.

    Slightly off-topic, but as much crap as people give Big Bad here and there (sometimes valid, other times less so, as with all things), I always found it weird that (some) people just assumed BBTS would open packages up to sell things separately (going back to Eject/Rewind) and just shrugged at it. Something like that is the one time I'd feel comfortable losing my shit over seeing a retailer doing, so it was so weird to see people not react more harshly when the idea came up.

    If there's anyone who pre-ordered from BBTS and only wanted Lifeline + Quickslinger, I have one available. PM me if interested.

    This is only for fractyl and lifeline.
    I placed an order for the megtron pretender two weeks ago and it has not been modified to include a 2nd figure.

    it shows only the megatron figure for the original price of $99.99

    That's because they don't know what the pairs will be yet. I guarantee they'll do the same when the next box comes.

    Hopefully you get it sorted out, though it might be too late to change an address at this point.

    So if I put in a pre-order for Counterpunch, who will he get paired up with? Toxitron or Fractyl?

    Fractyl is out already and was paired with Lifeline the Paradron Medic.

    Counterpunch will likely be paired with Toxitron and the "mystery 7th" figure.
    Though the likelyhood of CP being paired with one of the Pretenders certainly isn't 0%
