    Anyone have any idea? I know there's a number of places that seem to have gotten them in so far..

    I thought BBTS was going to get them a week or two ago actually.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I'm itching to try out the Superion add-on set.

    Nobody can know when a particular retailer will actually get an item besides the retailer themselves.

    There is even a disclaimer on the BBTS website (once you pre-order something) that says:

    The arrival dates listed below are estimates. Due to manufacturer delays, these estimates may not always be accurate. When we receive information about a change in preorder arrival status, this page will be updated with the most current information available.

    It'll arrive eventually.

    Well.. yeah I realize the nobody but the distributor would know, but maybe someone on the boards was more proactive than me and sent an email or a phone call asking if they had an estimated arrival time.

    Which would make someone else end up knowing..

    Heck, maybe BBTS is shipping some people their pre-orders whom may have pre-ordered first or something like that..

    I guess we could email Joel.
    He's answered emails in the past.

    I sent them an email just a few minutes ago, just to see if they have an estimated ETA.. I'll post back if I hear anything.

    Honestly, for me, the energon weapons (for the jet fighters) grew on me as I've got one carrying the stick like 2 night stick style things and the other has one on an arm like megatron's cannon, and finally I've loaned one to silverbolt who was too cool for weapons.

    I can't wait for the upgrade set it'll make superion look better, but I can't help but feel like I may continue to use the Energon weapons for a few things here and there.. Just not as feet and hands.. :)

    For the most part in my experience all of BBTS's preorder dates are normally a bit off and you wait a bit longer.

    Why don't you guys just cancel and buy it from ToyArena?

    I got mine from there TWO WEEKS ago....

    Is ToyArena more expensive or something? :confuse
