    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...

    Scratch that, they’re both in lol.

    Is it just me or does it seem like BBTS frequently gets stuff at the very end of the month?

    Depends on when the stuff comes out. When we see it pop up in Japan there's usually a week or two period before it arrives here. Which worked out for me since I had a fresh paycheck come in ready to take in the hit from this. Now we wait for January's releases. >.>

    What I have noticed is that a lot of times, stuff comes in stock on a Friday and doesn't ship out until the next week
