    Yep! Awesome! Just jumped on a voyager Drift, the Knights of Unicron set, and the Dinobots! Price came out nearly $30 cheaper than just ordering the two exclusives by themselves!

    Hey guys,I am trying to decide whether to keep my preorder for MP Wheeljack at BBTS or waiting to see if HLJ gets extra's of him in.I really want Wheeljack but jeez he is dang near $90 after you add shipping at BBTS but HLJ has a price of nearly half that,so what should I do?,and does anybody know if HLJ usually gets extra's of figures like these or just enough to fill preorders?.Thanks guys for the help.

    I've had pretty good luck with HLJ, at least in terms of Godzilla figures. I ordered a figure that was put on backorder because, hey, AMAZING price. Ended up getting filled like a year later, but the price was SO worth the wait.
    (But that's because I'm cheap and know that if I can get it for half the price that it is everywhere else, I'll do whatever it takes.)

    The only times I have seen them restock a figure is if:
    - it's listed as "in stock", and then they add more stock to it,
    - it's listed as "pre-order" and they get more in,
    - it's listed as "backorder" and it's finally filled
    - it's listed as "out of stock" right after the release date. This usually means they fulfilled all the preorders, but since it is a new figure, and it sold so well, they'll get more in.

    If it's "discontinued," they're not gonna get any more in.

    I just paid for MP Wheeljack at HLJ for $49. I have private warehouse set up so shipping will be cheaper for combined orders. I always have items shipped using SAL from Amiami, HLJ, and Nippon-Yasan because it is cheaper and nothing has ever come damaged in over 15 years of buying from them. I'm also not in any hurry to ship things EMS. YMMV but those are some of the best places to pay less than BBTS or TFSource for MP Transformers.

    I just ordered my MP-20 Express Shipped to the US for just under $60. The site says that they have low stock limit 1 per customer. Everywhere in the US wants at least $70 before shipping.

    Hmm. I just tried ordering with the "send me a link to pay" option and it appeared to be successful. (My cart was emptied, at least.) But I haven't received an email and the website says I have no open orders.

    Did it lose my order or is it normal for HLJ not to have any evidence on the website that it will be emailing me? :confused:

    The latter. I have had to go back into my emails to find some messages, and then they reappear on HLJ later. At least, in my experience.

    Not the same situation as you but I had a similar disappearing of order after I payed for wheeljack

    For me it went like:

    • Logged in, saw open orders, checked private warehouse
      Opened email to pay
      Clicked link to pay
      Payed via paypal
      Got email from paypal
      Got email hlj for payment
      Went back into private warehouse saw 1 less order
      Didnt see any reference to wheeljack order
      A few minutes later got email saying he was moved to my private warehouse
      Went back in and he was there

    So some patience is needed. Sometimes I get fast order confs other times slow

    Probably wouldn't hurt to send them an email to check. Or maybe it went to a junk folder? I requested he ship from my private warehouse but I haven't received an email to pay for shipping yet. They probably have a lot of orders to process.

    Junk folder is empty. I received password reset and password change emails successully. I'll give it a bit longer. I doubt that they have anyone logged in to answer emails at 1:00 in the morning (if I read the time zone map correctly).

    Hah ... I know the feeling. When I preordered jackie, bee and um I decided to slow down on purchases. Meanwhile it is hard to not get tempted by some of those 3p combiners or 3p mp dinos

    Hey guys,I just ordered Wheeljack from HLJ,but I haven't got an email conf. or paypal invoice,and yes I checked my spam folder but nothing in there,what is an estimation on how long before I get an email from them?or paypal.

    Also has Wheeljack officially been released or are they just getting orders ready for tomorrow when he is released?.Finally I hope my order got thru since I cancelled my BBTS order for him.So if someone could tell me about my questions I would be so grateful.Thanks guys.

    AND over $2000 paying off one of my student loans. I really can't afford to right now lol.
