    Don't have to jump on any trans, IF is pretty much what i buy the most, and only brand atm. And even that, i don't get them all. In fact, i am very picky.
    Just get what i have high desire for. Buy it like your are 8 years old, not collector

    I think IF also not easy to pull of. But not because of the alt mode themselves are harder to achieve than real vehicle. But due to their own bot mode.
    I mean their bot mode is almost perfect and little to no kibble. Compare to a more complex 3rd at MP size, these bot mode still win a lot them in term of kibble free. So it basically, you just have to look at it this way: their alt mode have a lot of kibble.

    I'm starting to think the BBTS shipment was on the ship that was stuck in the Suez Canal.

    Edit: I went back in this thread and checked. It looks like the 1st post that someone had received their order on January 28th, which is almost 3 months ago. How the fuck can BBTS be so far behind every other vendor in the world? There's no sense in moving my order since everywhere is already sold out. I just don't get it...

    Never again.

    I pre-ordered this dude on 12/26/2018. I am more than ready for BBTS to get it so I can ship my loot.

    Toy Dojo and TCP are by far the most reliable and fastest at receiving and shipping TF related items.

    I have had packages in Japan be shipped faster than how BBTS handles things.

    Reminds me of working in this craft store in high school. They'd have me price new items with the "retail price" and then the sale price slightly covering the regular price tag.

    Anyways, just got my ship notice from TFSafari. I'm sorry I every questioned your month long "incoming" notice, TFSafari.

    HOLY SHIT!
    I just got an email from BBTS that my preorder has been processed and will ship today.

    And BBTS is showing him in stock if anyone is looking to order. I'd do it fast.

    So did mine! Super happy with him, love all of the hidden weapon payloads, also love how the UT headmasters just fit into the seats of the shoulder-mounted cannons.

    I got a mail yesterday from TCP for my pre-order saying it'd be in stock in 3 days. So Tuesday, in theory.
