    My THS-02 order from BBTS became a pre-order again and it will be shipped only in July!
    I know that Takara only manufactured 50% of the total orderes and I don't have any complaint against Joel and the BBTS team, but July ?!? :redface2: 
    What the.... ?

    Mine was supposed to arrive in March, then it became April, then they said all preorders will be filled, then it became July. I shipped my loot and the very next day, mine gets sent to the warehouse to be shipped to me. Weird ass stuff right there....keep the faith, you may get it sooner than you expect......

    Offhand I'd say that the orders that could not be filled were shifted to the head of the line for the second release of the figure whic will ship around that time. So you should still get it but it will be a few months.

    If you don't want to wait or if you find the toy someplace else, I'd contact them and cancel your order. Otherwise you should get it when the next shipment is released.

    I ordered from Digital-Toys and got a shipment notice very shortly thereafter. The email notice I got from UPS said it should be here on Monday.

    yep.. the second production run is to be released in July... so if you were one of the unfortunate that preordered too late to get yours from this short first run, then you're on the wait list for the second, with a higher priority since you will have the earliest of the new preorders.

    I questioned BBTS about this because I am in the same boat....the said if you got this email

    Hi - I just wanted to drop you a quick email letting you know the Status of your preorder with us for the THS-02 Convoy. There was a fairly heavy shortage in Japan - Takara filled only 50% of orders on average. We also had a large shortage, but were able to secure stock at retail prices in Japan from a variety of sources, so while we will take a small loss on average for filling the remaining orders, our main goal is to get the items to you and fulfill your order. ALL orders will be filled, most likely within the next 2 weeks, as our shipments arrive from overseas. Thanks for preordering from BBTS - we really appreciate it!

    Thanks
    Joel & The BBTS Crew


    you will be getting one within the next few weeks. They are still waiting for all their stock to come from the various places. As they said, they secured enough at retail price to fill all the preorders they initially had..


    here is the response I received from them when I asked about my preorder being changed to july.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the confusion! If you have received an email stating that you will get a THS-02 in April, then you will get one soon. Our next shipment isn't due in until later and our system will only allow us to put one date.

    Thanks!
