    BBTS is consistent but last to deliver. If you don’t mind waiting, they always come through.

    Kinda pissed, Pulse didn’t notify me until 1:48pm and I was busy with work shit, completely missed out on Swoop on Pulse and now have to play the BBTS lottery. Pulse “Premium” indeed…

    I got my autobot 5 pack the same time pulse started sending theirs out. I’ve used them for years with no complaints.

    BBTS will eventually get their stock 95% of the time. It will just sometimes take a while. There have been other times I've gotten my figures shipped before anyone else did through them, as well.

    FYI, I don't mean to rub it in to anyone on here. I hope all who were looking to purchase Swoop's preorder today were able to do so. Swoop should be for everybody!

    This is definitely the biggest gap I’ve seen since starting my collection again. Maybe it might be my region but I think the recent SS Megatron had the biggest gap in the same wave (2 months). Might just be some distribution issues this year

    Anyone else have issues with TFSource preorders taking forever to come in stock? Seems like I always have some on preorder and they keep pushing the dates back.

    He's sold out on Pulse UK now, that's pretty rare to happen so quickly.

    Yeah, I've been waiting for a (paid for) Core Snarl since november 23, and while they have the bros and shockwave up for pre-order, Swoop isn't on there yet

    edit- @ tfsource.. my bad

    Honestly, I think results can vary with BBTS, and for that matter with the other online stores. Online purchasing you have to go with your gut sometimes, calculation in terms of following TF Community and in some cases would just have to wait and hope they deliver it to you. The mostly positive thing is, your credit card(if that is how you purchase) doesn't get charged until the item(s) are shipped. To be more detailed, your credit card company will put a hold amount on the purchase, but not draw the amount out till actual shipment of the item(s).

    According to the leaks SS86 Grimlock will be re-release in Octobor 2025. It's a long ways off.

    That's what I did too just to be safe, but since I'm in Canada, I'm trying to get pre-orders in at Amazon.ca as well but they're still not up yet.

    Does anyone know why the preorders aren't up at Target yet or when they will be?
