    I'm getting really frustrated. I preordered the BWX Primal and Megs back in the beginning of May from JRSToyworld. Then two days before they were supposed to be in stock, they get bumped back to June 15. Now they are moved again to June 23! I know it's not the fault of JRS, as they are just awesome. I'm just ticked cause I want those toys. Also, I want to know when the 6" Titanium figs are gonna be out!

    such is the downside of learning about new figures so far in advance. it was so much easier as kids. we'd just go to the store and "ooh! new stuff!"

    Yeah, waiting for new arrivals is always frustrating.
    Pretty much why I stopped pre-ordering and just depend on the element of suprise anymore. lol

    At least you don't live in a country where the distribution is so far behind you're still waiting for "new" stuff that the rest of the world has had for months beforehand.
    That is, if we get it at all.

    But, like CM and Valkysas said, it's the problem of finding out so far in advance. I myself miss the days of going into a shop, seeing something new and picking out the one that looks best.

    And from that:

    And it's now almost halfway through June. That's what's bugging the hell out of me. The 3 inch titaniums were originally supposed to be out in APRIL! And now it's June or something.

    Yeah, those "official release dates" for toys are hard to take as bona fide fact. They've been "officially released," yeah, but to whom? The entire country, all at one time? Not bloody likely. At least domestically, portions of the US get different waves of toys weeks - sometimes months - apart from others.

    Well that was always the good thing about Takara......when a BT was released on a certain date...you could guesstimate how long it would take for it to get to the respective online store you ordered it from and I was usually right....I am tired of waiting for Primus and mirage! June is trickling away and mirage was supposed to be here in may lol. Maybe they are revising the case he is in? WHo knows.

    It does seem wierd that they're being pushed back so far. Seems like they would want to get the BW figs out as early as possible so they can start promoting more TF's that relate to the movie merchandise.

    This is one really long limbo man!

    Hell, I haven't even seen Alt Prime yet, and I check NY stores almost daily!

    I think patience for the next 3-5 months may be required, as summer is almost here along with the annual toy drought.

    On the plus side, our wallets should get some much needed healing time.
