    Man, what a morning for me! Overslept my alarms but woke up to the 9am one pacific time! Thought I missed my trash and recycle can pickups, got them on the street before the trucks came. And got my Swoop order with backup in, in time! Time to make some coffee or maybe go back to sleep as I so groggy right now!

    Yikes! I thought Gears went fast too. What’s going on here? Has the fanbase grown or did HPulse and Amazon not placed a big enough unit order in?

    In this economy, I want to spend less and have reasonable ship cost, not spend more, more, more to get free ship!

    Managed to get Swoop on Pulse before pre-orders there sold out. Keeping up with all five Dinobots has been a journey, but definitely rewarding.

    I had 3 items on preorder with EE for $175 with free shipping on orders $79 dollars. I canceled an item that was $55 dollars and EE charged my credit card a $25 shipping fee. I called EE up and they said they made a mistake on the extra shipping charge and will give me back a full refund.

    I don't know the exact numbers on how many units are set aside for preorder, but someone mentioned with Origins Wheeljack only 5% of preorder units were set aside for HP and then the other 95% was for Target.

    Well, got him po’d on BBTS. Don’t really want to pay the shipping (and potentially import fees too) so hopefully Amazon Canada and/or GameStop come through.

    EE is a terrible online toy store business! I know only for outside the US residents to order from them.

    Pulse doesn't show an option except to join premium so I went with bbts like I did for snarl. $4 for shipping and it was $1 more than pulse listed. I'll take it.

    Yeah, Pulse’s usual base unit count is 3k or increments of 1.5k, I can’t recall the exact amount but their html is easy to read for those in the know. I’m more surprised by Amazon’s quick sellout rate. It’s f’n Amazon, they order huge units , huge.

    My Frenzy keeps getting pushed back with BBTS. Maybe by June it will be shipped out...A lot of ppl in the US don't want to admit it that there still are distribution and supply issues in the US. Transformers is an import toy and not domestic, so imports to the US are still iffy at times.

    Could you or anyone validate BBTS? I’ve pre ordered things from them before and the date for pushed so far back I cancelled and bought the stuff again like a year later when they had it in stock. I’ve had tigerhawk pre ordered for the longest and he just keeps getting pushed. Is there anyone who could reassure me that they for their snarl and any other hard to pre order items?

    Got my orders in at Pulse & Amazon. Whichever comes 1st is the one I'll keep. My bet is on Amazon!
