    Nope, Curt still runs it.

    I would do more business with BBTS if they followed suit with its competitors and had free shipping after a particular dollar amount spent.

    Have any of you ordered from Agabyss in WI? Ive become friends with the owner and he is an awesome guy.

    He almost always gets import toys ahead of both TFSource and BBTS and his prices have always been equal to or lower than the competitors. Also they offer a flat rate shipping too.

    What I was going to propose to the group is doing group orders. Id be willing to make the drive and pick up the group buys, once a month most likely if this is something you would all want to do.

    Also if there are items someone wants outside the group buys, Id be happy to pick them up on the monthly trips.

    Let me know who is interested and I can tell you for now here are the items I know we could do group buys on -

    Takara Legends Devastator
    MP Ironhide
    MP Hot Rod
    MP Shockwave
    MP Ratchet
    Toy World Devastator (Will pick up limbs once a month, 2 limbs a month)

    I bought from Agabyss at BotCon (his price for MP UM was $5 lower than everyone else). Seemed like a cool guy.

    I'd be interested if there was something on the horizon I was looking to get... but there isn't.

    I would be interested in 3rd party items. I've already placed my MP Orders thru HLJ. I am interested in some x-Transbots and a slew of other 3rd party items coming soon!

    Agabyss - I was talking with them about group pre-orders a while back and was able to get them at a better price elsewhere. Personally I don't need a fig a week before everyone else, if I am saving money

    Yeppers to that!

    I'm in the same boat for now, whatever saves a buck is the only way I can try to keep up.

    The Agabyss dudes are cool guys, I hung with them at DairyCon a couple years back when I bought a big collection to move. Sold a ton of stuff to one of their friends and worked out some awesome trades with them directly.

    so I ordered MP tracks for $60 off of some unknown seller on amazon, thinking it was probably too good to be true.

    shipped out thursday...got here today. 2 day priority and it's actually what I paid for. I'm kinda in shock right now lol. oh well I'm happy :lol

    TRU Joliet has the Sunstreaker ironhide etc. limbs. Also 4 Devestators. And Motormaster. And a BUNCH of those CW white Optimus Prime monstrosities. I mean a BUNCH. Maybe, like, 10? So guess that's the main depressing shelfwarmer what we are going to be looking at all through the holidays while everyone is scrounging for the Combaticons. Good to be able to see it coming.

    It's not in illinois but on amazon the takara legends slipstream and maybe nightbird I think. But for sure is the slipstream for $30.15 I think, I know it is $30 at least last night.

    Happy Gobble Gobble all!

    Those toy world Constructicons look AMAZING!

    And those Dr Wu human companion figures are amazing too.

    Anyone have MP Magnus and not want Spike and Daniel??
