    They would have an idea when they receive the stock...at which point they'd notify customers before sending it out. Point is, it's not going to show up at your door fuct and catch you completely off guard. If there's something off with it, you'll have a chance to cancel your order. BBTS doesn't want us sending back a crapload of returns on their dime any more than we want to deal with having to do it.

    And IF DX9 opened a bunch of existing stock figures, wiped them all down and repackaged them in fresh packaging so we're none the wiser...so what? If the figure is in new condition, it's worth the discount, whether it got a shower first or not. I HIGHLY doubt that's the case, but even if so, who cares?

    The numerous people who've posted about it seem to care.

    I guess it had been about 2 seconds since the last unnecessary panic so it was time for another one, huh?

    That’s just factoring possible water damage, what if they’re on fire guys?

    People would care if it showed up messed up. Dripping wet and rusting is an issue. If they properly addressed any water issue, nobody would know any different. And again, it's quite unlikely to be the case anyhow. BBTS will back up their product. If it's fuctup, you can send it back and BBTS will pay the return shipping. Not much to be concerned about here.

    Or, perhaps, DX9 made their money on the first run, and just like with Tyrant, which saw a second run at $80, and Carry at $100, whatever they make on a second run is profit so they can charge half the price and Target compulsive deal seekers.

    No, that’s too rational. It must be something hysteric like stock that has been stored at Chernobyl.

    so people are worrying about the gabriel stock coming in at bbts? so i preordered no question in my mind...bbts will back you up if somehting is up, BUT here is the thing. i don't think anything amiss is going on.
    gabriel, from what i'veread did not sell well overseas...aka in china. no idea what (its the best Omega supreme in existence IMO). i mean tf direct or tf express (i forget which) had him mad cheap for a long time...but shipping costs killed it (still reasonable overlal...like $245 but this bbts deal will be way cheaper). my GUESS is that bbts went and bought up stock from a bunch of china sellers that coudln't move the item even at low prices. put it on a boat altogether for cheap shipping...and is selling it here now ...due to arrive later on. in any case, i'm excited to get this guy at nearly $100 off.

    you are the only one who came in here today posting this shit insistently. sure there might have been a general concern maybe about past issues that were remedied pretty fast. but other than that all you have added to this discussion are your trolling post.

    if you own the bot cool if you just ordered it at the discount great. but if you are only here to try and make other new buyers doubt what they have just bought at a great price.

    that is pretty fucked up man and dont you have better things to do with your time.

    Gabriel is discounted on Taobao also. I know someone who has ordered one recently and I can say there's no dampness anywhere. Chances are BBTS is the same stock. I think those of you ordering from BBTS are probably safe from the issues the first release had from moisture.

    Hi everyone,

    Need some advice: how do I change the batteries on both arms? I would look in the instruction manual, but that's in storage with the box.

    Thank you!

    Rocket arm pull off the top. Pull out led circuit. Change battery. Iirc claw arm requires a screwdriver to access the led circuit.

    Does anyone have a good comparison between WJ omega and DX9's? Both look wise and quality-wise.

    I originally was excited about the WJ one, until I saw the tank. The massive out-of-scale head just really threw me off, and I actually lol'd.
