    I've never had to pay sales tax on an order from BBTS; your state may have a tax provision that requires state taxes for online sales...or you live in the same state as BBTS.

    Totally depends on state for sales tax. I remember i would always order from BBTS because they didnt have sales tax.....then the state passed the law for online purchases and BBTS sent the email regarding the change. I live in California....tax blows.

    Picked mine up on Wednesday. No trouble at all either carrying it (rather light) or fitting it into my car (still isn't the biggest thing I've had in there).

    All present and correct. Transforming it was fun, once I got past a couple of bad spots in the manual, and largely intuitive (it isn't the most complicated of things, just complex, which is a different thing). Very happy with it, especially the shade of orange it ended up being. And as expected, the maw doesn't bother me in the slightest (and neither do the teeth).

    The ratchets are (for the most part) awesome.

    Worth the price. Well done Hasbro.

    What's weird on that is BBTS charges sales tax for me but the chosen prime doesn't

    Sent photos and videos to Hasbro CS, as they requested, for my defective hip ratchet. Will see what happens.

    Would be very helpful if anyone here knows how or has suggestions on how to pins the pins on the front skirts. The rear skirts and stand mount are on a single long through pin and underneath that are the screws. The side skirts need to come off to get the pelvis apart but the pins are blocked by the front skirts. The front skirts each seem to have their own one way pin. I know the can come off without damage or cutting. LEK customs did it but has not responded to my inquiries.

    I doubt that Hasbro is going to offer up an entire replacement pelvis and hips.

    Phoned Hasbro again this morning. Apparently they are prepping the Canadian orders to be shipped. They said these are going out the door every day! So they we should be getting shipping info shortly.

    Shortly is a relative term. Compared to the life of a star, shortly. Compared to the life of a housefly, well, some may not get to see it.

    Hey, TFSource still has some!

    You didn't read all the way to the bottom. It's been there since day one, that it was not included in free shipping. It was even mentioned in this very thread when the pre-orders went up at other places like BBTS, TFSource, etc. It has been a deposit since day 1. I get your upset about the extra charges, but keep it real.
