    I have been waiting a while for the superion limbs, and they still aren't in.
    I also pre-orded the fansproject mangus accessories, and the site says october, but october is about to be over. anyone else having issues with BBTS and having to wait forever for stuff?

    As am I Roy.

    And as soon as I get money to spend I almost canceled at BBTS and went with TF Soucre but alas they are sold out till November.

    It is a tad ridiculous thou being that both TF Soucre and BBTS are located in the Midwest and separated by a state line.( I think don't quote me) So I don't know what the hold up would be. TF Source has had and soldo out of theirs for two weeks almost I believe.

    That's not BBTS. That's Fansprojects.

    Also, BBTS says all of their release dates are estimates.

    Be patient dude, they're coming :)

    I don't know if it's fansproject when so many other retailers got them, shipped them. I ordered through toyarena, well after it was released and got it within a week.

    D'OH I forgot about that point of the equation. I just assumed they would send out all the online retail orders all at once. Eagerness is making me stupid with fan rage. :lolol 

    But then I see stuff like Peter just mentioned and it make the rage grow more. Who knows what the reason behind it is. Could be Fanprojects, could be the shipper. But I don't think BBTS would just sit on them if they already have them.

    Oh well just gotta wait hopefully a bit longer.

    Well, the only thing keeping me from canceling my order at BBTS is the POL function that they have. It saves a ton on shipping.

    As soon as Tfsource got theirs in I canceled my Pre-order with them and ordered. I got them on Friday. I hate BBTS anymore.

    I got 2 of these, one of them has a bent up box. The contents inside are all fine, but I'm looking to sell it for $50 shipped, pretty much what I paid for it, if anyone really wants it and is planning on throwing the box out anyway.

    I know BBTS isn't sitting on their stuff, but for whatever reason, they aren't getting them the way other online retailers are. But who cares what the reasons are? Toyarena has them in stock now. My total shipped FedEx was $53.84. BBTS right now shipped would be $52.38.

    $50 for a $11.99 Upgrade? Good Luck with that Flame and why are you paying so much Peter? You must not live in the States. Sorry just a general assumption of mine is that everyone on here lives in the states.

    I think your assumptions are also wrong for the item we are talking about ^_^. I think we are talking about the appendage kit (well, i'm not sure about Peter, i hope he is too). It was 44.99 plus $8 or 9 shipping. I'm not trying THAT hard to get rid of it, cuz i wouldn't mind another one, but thanks for the good luck! =)

    They must be referring to the Superion kit, not the CC one.

    I've been waiting on Revoltech Prime, Henkei Bumblebee, and the CC add ons. I've been waiting for Revoltech Prime, and Henkei Bumblebee longer than the CC add ons though.

    Ohh thank god. Had a mini coronary. I thought Flame was out of the United State trying to sell the CC upgrade and Peter was out of the states trying to get one. I in turn thought the price jumped from $11 to $50 everywhere.

    See people!!?? Seee?? I am the reason why you shouldn't do Plastic Crack!!!! :dunce

    Yeah, I'm thinking about working with TFSource in the future more. Their packaging is bomber and they have better prices than BBTS on some things. BBTS saving grace is the POL option though. Side note: bought some stuff from Tempting Toys... terrible packaging (non existent). The packages came in scuffed and dented. Very annoying.
