    I can't find it either. I haven't seen it listed very many places yet.

    Has BBTS sent anyone else an item with a big white sticker they put on it with their code and UPC for the product? I received a Master Builder Feilong with one on the bottom of the box last week. At first I thought it was from the manufacturer until I noticed how similar it was to the codes on the labels they use for their collector's grade items.

    I'm not happy about this at all. It's bad enough I have to worry about "standard grade" boxes with dents and creases and smashed corners. Now I have to worry about stickers too?

    I just checked my last shipment, where the standard grade items were 40th Leia and SHF Akane Tendo. No labels on either. I don't know what line Master Builder is or what value the box has but contact customer support if that's a problem. BBTS really does go the extra mile so that was either a mistake or there was some reason for it (again, I know nothing about that line so I don't know).

    In case anybody was wondering, the US SHF Akane has no brown outer box and 40th Leia, though not the horror show we saw online, is indeed different from boxed Leia.

    Apparently, the Headmaster Garage was cancelled (the little pods for titanmasters that can turn into gun emplacements)

    I know. Seemed like they'd really do great work augmenting the various base modes

    I just found and purchased Brawn and Roadburn at my local Target, came home, cancelled my pre-order on BBTS, and shipped my POL!

    Can't imagine BBTS is too pleased about how late they're getting wave 4 product...

    I found Voyager Broadside at a Target, got my phone out and cancelled right there in the store aisle. My Target is kind of the butt end of distribution, though found a TR Sharkticon there and bought it for shits and giggles. It's only the 4th one for me.

    I did the same exact thing this morning. Did the same with Broadside a few weeks ago as well. It's unfortunate as I prefer to give BBTS my business.

    I honestly prefer to buy locally, but anymore it boils down to who gets stock first. If I see a figure at Target before BBTS gets it in stock, the pre-order is cancelled. If BBTS gets it first, they get my money. In recent times, it's a 50/50 toss up.

    I don't it's their fault. They're just not getting the stock from Hasbro and are unable to solicit preorders. I just don't know why Hasbro is changing how they're dealing with them.

    ironicly that is so they supposedly get a better deal and actualy get there prodcuts meanwhile other places dont have there hands tied are doing much better then them and seem to be getting there products well before bbts, it seems a very one sided deal at the moment

    I'd be careful about cancelling preorders like that. You never know when Target and Walmart will feel safe to suck again and online shops might not be able to ramp back up as quickly as you'd like.
