    Yeah got tired of waiting for BBTS and just went with TFSource. Not my favorite retailer but it was a hell of a lot less hassle.

    Okay, my BBTS order went through on the second try. I'll keep the two from Captured Prey on my desk at work. :)

    The BBTS site is getting hammered. Even with the slowdown it took all of 5 minutes to get mine.

    I kept hitting back and confirm and finally it went through. I was scared that they'd all actually went through ad I'd owe $400!

    Now to find motormaster!!!!

    Got Brake-Neck/Wildrider! Took me about half an hour but I got him! I'm so happy -- Wildrider is my favorite Transformers character, and I am so excited to get a modern version of him to go with my G1 version. Given the storyline in the IDW comics and on his bio profile, I think he will be posed with his G1 counterpart, a psychopathic lone wolf who is now out on his own. :D 

    (I decided to get Jhiaxus while I was in the process.)

    BBTS is still showing both in stock, and the traffic has lightened up considerably. I was one of those fighting for 1 of each at 12:01am, and ended up with 3 of each in my cart due to the lag, which took over 5 minutes to get corrected. All worth it to get them ordered though.
    Worst part is it didn't bother me that much to have the new members. Now I hope they do the same for that Groove figure. He looks great!

    Well, that was a little intense. But my order finally went through and they'll be sitting in my POL soon.

    Now I can go back to focusing on finding Hot Spot and Groove, preferably at retail. Haven't had to go the online route for any CW voyagers or legends, so I'm hoping my luck holds out.

    That had me a little paranoid too. Thankfully it was just the one set!
