    Yeah, everybody's running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to get these POTP figures. I can appreciate wanting to get these figures as soon as possible...to a point. I don't get paying a premium, for Wave 1 of all things. I wonder if BBTS gets away with their pricing because a lot of their sales might come from casual fans who just want a Grimlock and a Starscream in their collection, or late-to-the-party buyers who might bite on that Voyager 2-fer a year from now when they're gone from brick-and-mortar stores. I know I've overpaid a bit on a figure from BBTS just because it's a year or two old and I can't find it anywhere else.

    On topic, I see that MP-10B is in stock at TCP. I wonder when BBTS will get their stock in?

    35 for a voyage doesn't really bother me. They're 30 in the store and it costs more than 5 in gas for me to drive there, so it's kind if a win win.

    Grabbed a Legends Blurr. That frees up the Hasbro one for some customizing. Also grabbed some KFC hands for a rather ambitious custom - I'm going to attempt to give a CW Silverbolt a hand transplant.

    My BBTS order of Starscream + Grimlock shipped this morning, forgot to say. Amazon also charged me and now says theirs (a solo Grimmy) will arrive on the 28th. We shall see. Now it's a race lol. :lol  In either case, sometime between now and January I will definitely have an extra Grimmy and a SS I don't want/need if anyone's still searching for them by then. Didn't plan it that way... they both updated simultaneously lol.

    Wow, BBTS and USPS are on the ball. Just got my FT Slag (Cesium), Takara TargetMasters, micro Ironhide, retro Black Widow, Yukari Akiyama, and "Rock Candy" Starfire statue.

    Edit: Nice to see Cesium's forearms can be user-disassembled because mine shipped with one of the hands flipped :/

    Does BBTS function at full capacity between xmas and new years or the first week after new years? That's when I'll have preorders filled and am wondering if I should except a significant delay in shipping?

    Ok guys, so I have an item in my PoL from a few months back that is set to "expire" in 13 days. I bought a bunch of other stuff last week and am waiting for the new MP tape recolors before shipping it. I emailed BBTS to confirm if there's a way to stretch out the item that's about to "expire" so if the MP tapes are delayed they wouldn't auto-ship the first item and then I just have to pay to ship everything else a week later.

    Well, it turns out that since they updated the PoL system and things now "expire" quicker, they're not yet forcing you to auto-ship anything. Here's their exact wording:

    Currently, the system is offering a significant grace period as to allow for time for customers to familiarize themselves with the recent policy changes and use of Pile of Loot. We do not know how long moving forward the grace period will be in effect, but the items that reach zero days will simply sit at zero days for the time being. Customers would be informed prior to the automatic shipping taking place. It is always recommended to have you keep a close eye on your account, and we are happy to help if you have any questions along the way.

    I wouldn't recomend pushing it and holding things for months and months past their expiration, but it looks like a few weeks or maybe a month or two will be ok. Obviously they can change the policy and start auto-shipping things at any time...

    (FYI)

    So, guessing it's going to be at least another week before BBTS starts shipping MP-39...

    Looks like MP-39 just came in stock. Which probably means another week or so before I get him...
