    Someone earlier said target didn’t have preorders for any of the dinobots.

    Target didnt put up any online preorders for any of the other ss86 Dinobots. They were just found in store. Don't expect ss86 swoop preorders at Target online.

    I pretty much only use BBTS and sometimes Pulse. I don't remember which items, but remember sometimes getting stuff before the other online stores. I don't don't think they are always last, but I don't have statistics to back that up.

    Anyway, I like them a great deal. Their site is easy to use, their pile of Loot Feature is very handy, and they have never made a mistake and had to cancel something I had ordered. Also, you can Pre-Order anything you want and cancel any of it at any time with no penalty or fee. That's what I like the best, because it allows me to have everything I want from the mainlines lined up and ready for purchase as soon as it comes in. But if I see something sooner in the store, i can just buy it immediately, whip out my phone and cancel the BBTS order for no penalty.

    Whoops, I didnt realize this was a SS Swoop thread, I thought it was a 2024 Wave 2 Preorder Thread. Any luck for the others? Looking for Sunstreaker and Shockwave specifically. (I know Sunstreaker has been found in stores lately but I have pretty low luck on in-store hunting in my area)

    @Anyone that missed out on Pulse/Amazon:

    I got POs in at both, with the intention of cancelling one of the two, depending on how things play out.

    I'll keep both open and sell it at cost + shipping to someone here instead, drop me a line. Also open to trades.

    Origin Wheeljack is a Target exclusive, so Pulse only gets 5%. Swoop is general retail, so they should get regular amounts of him. He'll probably go in and out of stock several times as Pulse adds more allotments.

    Damn, I went to preorder it on Amazon and it was sold out before I could add it to my cart. Guess I’ll order it from EE.

    They will get it at some point(maybe someone has insight on this?), but they don't do preorder purchase. You might be able to purchase it for cheaper, but you have to get lucky that they have it on the store shelves.

    I would look at Target online no sooner than the first Target in store sighting… probably mid late summer. Don’t expect Targets website to have him until September-November for Christmas shopping. This is just pre-order season.

    For Hasbro stuff, Pulse is my first choice, but I use BBTS for pretty much everything else. That said, I had to order Swoop from BBTS today since he was sold out on Pulse by the time I could get on there. And I don't mind the extra wait I sometimes experience at BBTS. I'm not in any rush to put the figure on the shelf and forget I own it, lol. Plus, BBTS has never let me down.

    Whats with Amazon dropping the ball on high-demand mainline items lately? First Gears, now Swoop. I don't like BBTS too much but they are a good backup to have. Got my preo in over there.

    I’m out of luck on Swoop and Gears on Amazon but Sandstorm showed up again and ordered today.

    hoping Gears, Swoop, show up later again now have to play the check listings every day game

    At least with BBTS, I'm confident they'll actually get the item in.

    Preordered him from BBTS and Amazon, whoever gets him first I keep. Can’t wait to complete the team.

    Shockwave I’ll get later when he’s in stock or after.
