I just got this email from BBTS not even 5 min ago. Hi - We've learned from our suppliers that there was a shortage of around 50% on the TA-12 figure in Japan. Multiple supliers were able to send us only about 50% of what we have ordered. We were able to fill roughly two thirds of our preorders, but we did not receive enough inventory to fill all preorders. When existing unpaid orders cancel in around 10 days - we expect to be able to fill preorders for people who ordered on March 25th or before. If you preordered on March 26th or later, there is a good chance we will not be able to fill the order. We have sent several inquiries to Japan about another production run, but have not heard anything back yet. I'm very sorry for the problem on this item. We have verified with Japan that other Animated preorders for releases in July and later should fill in full without issues because they have enough lead time to adjust production runs, the only other figure that may give us problems is the TA-20 Blackout, but we will get as many as we can. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the shortage, we will keep preorders open in hopes that more stock will be produced.
