    So it looks like Captured Prey and Scramblecore both have wave 2 TR deluxes up for pre-order... I've never used either of those sites before, anybody had a good (or bad) pre-order experience with them? Allowing for the fact that pre-order dates can be unpredictable, are they pretty good at meeting their estimated dates?

    Hasbro sets the dates, not the store. If Hasbro says it'll be out in October then delays it (which happens A LOT) its not the store's fault.

    That said, Captured Prey is amazing.

    I've had no issues with Captured Prey in the past.

    I have used CP a lot and never had any issues. I did order TL Hardhead from Scramblecore and was amazed with their shipping notification service. The downside though is they usually get hasbro stuff later than bigger sites such as bbts.

    Only problem with Captured Prey is you have to pay upfront. Otherwise they've been reliable and offer solid service.

    Thanks, folks! That's definitely a solid round of recommendations.
