    This sale has been very good so far. Only one day so far has been a total dud. I was disappointed to miss Revoltech Legacy Yoko but XTB Cliffjumper made up for it.

    I will be in so much trouble when preorders like Wheeljack+ decide to show up...

    I don't know what the sale price was for that, but did you see if it was still on "sale" despite being only one day. I'm noticing some of the "one day" sale items are still showing the sale price days after if you look them up.

    It was on sale for $33, down from $47, down from $68. At $47, I may as well go buy the other version I like better, or be happy with the 3rd version I already have. It's still a good price, just not for my specific circumstances.

    Wow, I did not expect XTB Cliffjumper to be sold out when I woke up this morning. I knew I should've ordered another.

    I got a 10-day notice for my Smashdown preorder. Hopefully the rest of wave 3 follows suit.

    LoL I panicked and grabbed the DX9 legend scale Coneheads and the Pacific Rim: Uprising Shrikethorn because they are running low and on sale, and it looks like they only set aside so many Shrikethorns for that price.

    Yeah, for that price I finally caved and picked it up. I was ok with the original release, but I do love the dark version as well. Now the tough choice of how to display them lol.

    Nope, never on the site. BBTS seems to have given up on them.

    If thats the case, the odd things is some the Series One 8 packs were up for pre order after they seem to have sold out when I looked out of curiosity weeks ago. I really don't get it either. With series one they had them up for pre order and in stock right around the street date. With Series two nothing, and retail stores in general didn't seem to rush to put them out either despite most seemingly putting them out right on time with series one, even in my stores who aren't the best at it. I know some stores in the U.S. had series two right on time, yet here in Oregon I didn't see anything series 2 related in my stores till memorial day weekend.....practically 2 months after the April 1st street date. Thank goodness for amazon I guess.

    It might be because of the blind bag nature of Botbots, I'm not sure BBTS ever really invests that heavily into those kind of things anymore.

    They have plenty of "Blind bag" type things. Take a look at all the mini funko pop things alone where you have to order an entire case. Theres also tons of different colletable figures like that for imported japanese anime stuff. If I recall, when pre orders first went live for series one BotBots, the cases of the single packs quickly sold out. There was certainly a demand for them, and I think its safe to say with popularity that I've seen with them from people on the forum, they'd have no problem making any money off of them. I practically do about 95 percent of my transformer purchases via BBTS. Series 2 of BotBots was the first time I had to order something transformer related on amazon or grabbed what I saw in retail because they were a no show otherwise

    Just tried my first Pile of Loot function. Just that the one figure I was preordering, I didn't like how much shipping costs for the one.
