No stupid questions! You're good. It never hurts to ask.
On sale yet
No. Use this link to get to the listing so you can refresh it: Generic Error
Going to guess it will be around noon est when it goes up. Their advertised promo coupon expires today at 11:59am est.
What promo coupon
Doesn't really matter, the SDCC stuff says it's excluded from promotions.
Everythings lists a limit but the Bumblebee pack. Does anybody know if the limit is 1 or 2?
Yep, and they indicated very specifically:
"Item will be available for purchase on 8/13. Limit of 2 per household
Item is excluded from any promotions.
Phone orders are not accept for this item"
No free shipping, no coupons, no codes, no nothing.
I've been buying from Japan since the early 2000's and (touches wood) have never had a problem. The worst thing I've had is with my LG G2 Megatron, where one of the wings keeps popping off. Other than that, I've been fine with everything. And I don't just buy TF's from Japan, I buy other Anime items and a shed-load of Gojira/Gamera stuff too.
Having said that I've started being very choosy what I get from Japan because every... Single... Box I've had this year has been caught for customs! Grrr! So I'm kind of glad Takara and Hasbro are putting out the same stuff so I don't have to buy Takara releases for their superior quality, it'll save me a ton!
Which brings me to your customs question: USGoBuy allow you to do your own customs form, so I've just been marking everything as $20, which gets it through customs without a fee. Yes, it's risky if anything happens en route, but , well, what's life without a little excitement?! No different from having my stuff from Japan sent unregistered. Check it out, see what you think: www.usgobuy.com It's worth it for stuff you just can't get here, even on Kapow or IDT.
So how does this work?
I just wait till noon today and try to refresh the page so it shows "in stock?"
More or less. Plus, if you miss it, there's no cause for concern, since BBTS has the set at nearly the same price. In the end, the main difference between getting it here and on BBTS is that you'll get it 5 months earlier if you manage to snag it today.
I always hear people making a big deal about this day, and how they stay up for like 48 hours or something.
Why so difficult? Doenst it just show up when its 'live?" ....so once the time hits, it should be there? Am I missing something?
Yes, it'll just show up at a certain time. However, the difficulty lies in the fact that there will be tons of other Transformers fans chomping at the bit to buy it as well, so it will likely sell out extremely quickly.
I stand by my assertion (with appropriate gender correction) you are a braver woman than I!
no one knows when it will go live, and sdcc exclusives sell out in seconds sometimes
Ah ok. I see.
Thanks, I'll give it a try then.
3 minutes to noon
I have a feeling this will show up sometime later this afternoon while I'm at work, oh well I guess I do have the Takara version on preorder not really feeling this years exclusive offerings. Good thing to as I have more important preorders I'm waiting to be filled.
It's in stock
