    If you dont have an item in the stack already itll do that. When you turn stacking on and then go to preorder, youll notice where it usually has the payment options theres going to be an option there for Stacking and itll be yes by default. Then you just place the order like normal or you add the other 2 items like you mentioned into your cart and submit. No money will be charged, nor will you receive an email confirmation, creating the stack. Once your stack is made, THEN youll start seeing the "add to stack" button.
    When you go back to your account info and look in the stack manager, it should show all three items in the preorder part. Hope this helps

    I think Wx2 could have been a better name. Especially since it's the Code X2 toy. ;) 

    Wx2 = WW

    Except that's not how it's happening for me. I have stacking turned on, but when I go to the checkout, it has "no" as the default under stacking. When I change it to yes, the pull down menu for "pay now/pay later" goes away leaving me to believe I'm going to be charged now. There is nothing on there, even under the "help" section that leads me to believe I'll be charged later if I don't or can't select it in the checkout section.

    I knew there was a reason I took algebra in HS. I prefer the Wx2 theory

    Yeah i know, they need to clarify that in the FAQ section a wee bit better. But essentially what will happen is you will be charged when ALL of the items in your stack are in stock (which would be sometime in may if you plan on waiting for X3) . You wont be charged when you place the order. Its in their FAQ but like i mentioned, a little more clarity would help.

    Fucking awesome that they got additional X1 in stock. Glad I didn't have to drop 150 bones on him. Managed to pre-order all 3 X figures.

    I'm loving Weirdwolf. Him, Squeezeplay, and Apeface have always been my favorite Headmasters. :)

    You won't be charged. They only charge you when you are ready to ship and you select that particular item to ship.

    man I'm kind of pissed off. I email BBTS customer service two days ago and ask if they will restock code and they said no they don't see it happening anytime soon. So I paid $120 for him on the aftermarket and two days later I see him in stock.

    Perhaps they had no idea, and it wasn't until they got the numbers for X2 and X3 that FP told them, "Oh hey, we've got a few more Codes to ship you as well."

    That's most likely it.

    Over the years I've learned to be patient with FP stuff, as they all seem to get a restock at least once or twice. It may be a year or more between restocks, but it usually happens. Look at how many times City Commander has been restocked/rereleased. So far the only one that's been out more than a year that hasn't gotten a rerelease is their Cliffjumper upgrade kit (I seem to remember FP saying something about the molds not holding up).

    It is not unheard of for companies to throw in extra stock when negotiating new stock. I would not be surprised if we see more from other distributors. Remember code never got an official release and correct me if I am wrong but they never said code was exclusively for charity.

    You're right it's only the non exclusive/limited run items that get restocked/rereleased, so that would also include the snow man redeco of the arial appendage set as well... and probably others I'm forgetting.

    The ariel appendage did get a restock via BBTS (that's when I got mine).

    Well I pre-ordered 2 Code in the beginning of January and one came in and the other wasn't filled, they said that they oversold the product and moved my order to the new order
