    Hmm, mine is still on preorder, and preorders are sold out. I wonder if they didn't get enough to fulfill their orders. :/

    :edit:
    Two days later he’s in hand, yay.

    Did you get the arrival notice though? I didn't get a shipping order, nor have I been charged yet, but I did get their email saying that the tapes should be arriving soon.™

    Why is anyone dead set on ordering from BBTS? They aren't getting anything to you guys before the likes of Show Z, TF Safari, most any listing on AliExpress, and many others. Their prices also aren't anything to write home about.

    All the rest of us are enjoying our DW-P51 sets, posting pics, reviews, etc, and you guys are here complaining about BBTS orders.

    It's on BBTS' new arrival page for anyone to buy now.

    Their timing in getting a lot of import sets is definitely way behind other vendors, including other US stores.

    I wasn't dead set...I just had a bunch of stuff that had just dropped into my POL and decided about a week ago to finally get the set. Since I can throw it into my POL, the shipping on it is almost free.

    I already have the regular set. I’m just waiting for the other two from TCP. Weird that they didn’t get them all at the same time.

    Are we all talking about the same versions? Maybe BBTS only got in my all-black version since I got the email as well and shows in my PoL.

    Easing off the GOTTA GET IT NOW mindset has been the wisest thing I've ever done. Well, after saying 'yes' to that one chick in college that said she wanted to show me a trick with her tongue.

    Something about the plastic of this set reminds me of the UT headmasters, only a bit smoother - I mean that in a good way. Its a super nice set. After Mohawk and this I’m even more eager to grab Soundwave, Prime and Beachcomber. Hopefully more tapes are coming, too.

    The only issue on my set is loose hips in combined mode, which I already fixed. Very happy overall. Way, waaaay better than that set KFC did years ago.

    Finally got mine after waiting 6 months for him at BBTS. But there was a problem....

    One of Eagles weapons was deformed!

    This sucks since it has to be complete in order to combine to make a legit shoulder cannon for Chatter once he's combined. So I emailed BBTS to explain this QC issue and now I have to wait for them to send another weapon set.

    Other than the weapon issue Chatter aka Squawkbox is pretty decent:

    Mine jsut arrived today, thankfully no weapon deformity.

    HOWEVER, the weapons don't fit together for the combine mode. The larger section just falls right off, and the pegs for his arms are too small. Oh well.

    I've had mine for a while now, one weapon was missing from the sprue.

    I bought it from TFSafari and they sent a replacement with my next order, which was the black version as I really like this (these) figure.

    I did have to floor polish the tips for the combined mode of the guns. But the figures themselves almost puts Hasbro to shame.

    Wow... I thought BBTS were going to just ship me another set of weapon's but they sent me a whole new set in the mail today! So now I have 2 pairs of Chatter's. Which I think is just since I had to wait an extra 6 months for the 1st set anyway...

    ......So maybe I'll try to paint one of them black and give it to Soundblaster.

    Yeah, one of the shoulder cannons on my new set has the same issue when combining it to. So I'll just take a microscopic piece of Scotch Tape and wrap it around the end of Eagles weapon and that should give it enough traction to hold to Orang's to make a complete Sholder cannon for Chatter.

    Yeah, considering how tempted I was to just cancel the preorder at BBTS and order Chatter somewhere else during those 6 months. The end result did payoff, especially if I decide to sell one of these at retail price.

    Those of y'all with different sets really need to take some mix/match combination pics. Just sayin'...

    Man, maybe they have improved their customer service or got some new representatives. Several years ago I ordered a Super7 figure from them that was visibly broken in the package and they told me to ship it back to them (at my cost) and they would send me a replacement. :rolleyes:

    I was not overly impressed with the dr. wu galvatron/soundwave set, but after getting these... I'm really looking forward to legends arcee and some of the other stuff they're releasing.
