    This is what I did with TLK Bee and Crosshairs. Had no interest in Strafe and already have Drift, so no point in ordering the whole case from BBTS. Would have been a different story if Cogman has also been in that wave. As it stands HLJ had the Takara deluxes for cheaper then retail in Canada, though I'm not sure what shipping will be yet, so that'll surely make up the difference.

    I'd rather pay $28 for a hasbro slugslinger that I can buy solo than $40 for a takara slugslinger or $60 for one toy I want and two I already have

    Oh, me, too. But I remember this thread, the CW thread, and the BBTS facebook page when they were surge pricing (dynamic pricing? is there a standard name for this?) Sky Lynx, Hot Spot (w/BC Prime), and a few others and get why they changed up what they're doing. I don't like it, and I'm dreading parts of PotP, but I get it.

    They have to do it, now more than ever because they caved on flat shipping. Shipping costs what it costs. If you don't pay for it as shipping, you pay for it in some other way.

    POTP looks like it'll be a little stronger on the assortment front from my POV but the stickers and lack of paint really diminish the appeal. Still more likely to order a case online than suffer retail though.

    100% agree. This is why I bought from Timmys Toy Box on Amazon, cost me $33 but it was better than buying a set or Takara (I prefer Hasbro anyway). Again at the end if tge day angst should be aimed at Hasbro for lackluster assortments.

    I understand why BBTS is doing it, but I agree that it's BS online retailers have to pull stunts like this just to avoid clogging their warehouse with unwanted duds.

    I could see that esp with Walmart and Amazon going at it tooth and nail.

    I have a novel idea for Hasbro, How about each Wave only contains NEW figures (yes remolds/repaints would count as new), until all characters for the entire line are released. Then let the last wave(s) of that line contain any combination they want. In the case of TR Deluxes, Wave 6 would be all repeats (perhaps of characters that were single packed in previous waves??) and Wave 5 would have replaced Wolf wire for Slugslinger.

    Maybe Dragonstorm will be listed individually eventually? Thats what happened with Megatron.

    Otherwise I'll wait for Hasbrotoyshop to list him, Crosshairs, & Bee.

    Well, just got a shipping confirmation on my first order with the new system (hit Ship on Friday 3:#0 est, confirmation apprx: 2:30 est today). Did flat rate, have the earliest ETA being this Thursday to next Tuesday. Has anyone had issues with Fed-Ex banging up the boxes much?

    Top of my head, no sorry, but I know it's been discussed on the TFW2005 KO thread.

    Placed a preorder on Legends G2 Megatron/Archforce. I have never bought a Takara Transformer before (not a fan of most decos & prices), but I figured if I started I'd only get figures Hasbro won't be doing.

    Thought about this case problem last night and its like Hasbro either wants to punish or take advantage of us for buying figures AS THEY ARE RELEASED, when they re4pack the same ones and then fix it so we have to get the whole case to get the one new one in it. Dirty pool all around and not a very good way to treat their best customers. Think about it.

    I don't think they really have much control when it comes to distribution honestly

    That's $2 better than what I paid. Am I supposed to "internet rage" now?
