    Hmmm, thinking long and hard about getting this guy. Just saw that TCP has him for preorder- not sure if it was mentioned already.

    Still waiting for TFS to put up the PO. I've already got BBTS as a fallback but I'd like to save some on shipping.

    Have you tried The Chosen Prime? They offer free shipping on orders 150+ and great customer service. You also get points when you order to redeem as cash on future purchases. I bought Mp Ramjet and got 180 points, 150 of which amounts to $5 bucks that I may plan to use towards Skywarp.

    I know right, their sales are the only good things that they have, other then that they're marketing strategy is just dumb how they list prices like that.

    TFS does the same thing, $150, free shipping, and a points program. I'm still waiting for my Thrust but I preordered SW today.

    Wow, I just noticed that Anime Export had this guy available for preorder. Of course, it's out of stock. And it has some ridiculous timing of July 18th...very odd. Same thing happened with Thrust, they were barely there.

    And Decepticons aren't supposed to be very popular in Japan, eh?...whatever :D

    Whatcha talkin' about Willis??? First of all, AE gets the Takara Tomy Mall exclusives from Takara Tomy Mall, same as everybody else, and so doesn't have the usual 30% pre-order discount. Secondly, every AE product only available as a pre-order gets a cut-off period, so AE knows how many items it needs to order itself from the manufacturer to fullfill all pre-orders. Sometimes, however, the maximum amount of orders AE can make themselves gets reached before the cut-off date, like in this case and in the case of Thrust.

    I get to be Phil Drummond in this case, I suppose :D 

    My beef was that AE usually doesn't get these kinds of TTMall releases, and I was thinking there was a ludicrously short period of time they allowed for pre-orders. For instance, they didn't even get SW the first time around. But I suppose he wasn't a TTMall exclusive then. Thrust was gone so fast it might as well not even have been up (I'd have been all over it, had I known). And then my last zing is at the notion that Decepticons don't sell as well due to popularity...I call shenanigans on that, but who's to say.

    If I could, I'd do all my dealing through AE but because of things like this, I have to seek out alternatives. More expensive alternatives, lol...hence my complaints :D

    I'll pass on this reissue. I already have the previous release plus the BB7/YM KO which has superb quality.
