    Any news at all on these guys and smokescreen? I cancelled the first time but they only gave a credit so just went with them in the end. That was two release month changes ago. No news on my orders page :-( now another month change. It’s crazy. No twitter or Facebook posts?

    Oh No!! BBTS now charges tax! I shopped at BBTS because they didn't charge tax and had flat rate shipping, but now they charge tax ........like TFSource and CP. Now I am going to have to reevaluate my shopping options. Dang!

    You can have stuff shipped to your relatives in Oregon to avoid online sales tax, and pick up your stuff around the holidays when you go visits. :p

    I'm not saying I have to have the item the day after I order it. The issue is I think its a bit ridiculous at times for instock items to take nearly/a full week just to leave the warehouse. I know I'm far from the only one thats had that issue. The real kicker is at times I've ordered things from amazon that I didn't really need right away because they were for someone else and did the "no rush free shipping" that was expected to take a full week and got it within 2-3 days of ordering <_<

    Ever since they cut the POL period from six months down to 90 days, it just hasn't been the same. I used to get these CRT TV sized boxes stuffed with toys but now it's like three or four here and there.

    I sorda remember they didn't really enforce the POL time frame like ~7-8 years ago?

    But shipping was like ~$30-50 for a gigantic box(es)?

    My POL finally shipped. Hopefully it doesn't take a week to travel from WI to OH, but as long as I get everything I'll be happy whenever it gets here.

    Man, those Prime Masters are dirt cheap right now.

    And I finally splurged on the Legends versions of the Monsterbots and Brawn (since he has the better Repugnus head) earlier today.

    (I got selected to receive a Course Director's Award in the university I'm getting my Masters Degree at, so the Monsterbots and Brawn are a present I got for myself as congrats. :D )

    Thanks!

    It was a pretty big purchase though, so I think it'll be a while before I let myself splurge like that again.

    Congratulations!

    The old FOC stuff is just... where did it come from? I already own most of them, and the ones I don't I didn't want the first time 'round. Still just odd, you know?

    Ugh, bad news.

    I got a message from BBTS' customer service saying they couldn't process my payment because the Billing Address I gave them didn't match what my bank had. :( 

    I tried to fix it, but I think I screwed that up and I can't call them because their customer service is closed. How often/soon do they respond to emails?

    Bbts continues to add older takara figures. More of the thrilling 30s in all their glossy goodness, and now unite warriors. As of now, mega empress crew and convoy crew is up (I can't remember the proper names). Both under $200

    Nice!!! Grabbed a preorder for TG25 Orion Pax & Megatronus. Been wanting that for a long time, but not willing to pay the ebay prices. Hopefully the Hoist/Trail "cutter" set goes up too.

    It looks like my problem's been fixed, but I emailed BBTS just to be safe. Now all I can do is wait.

    Megaempress crew is called Megatronia and Convoy crew is called Convoy Grand Prime.

    And on that note, holy mother of Primus, we're getting more older Takara figures? Including Armada Starscream and Unite Warriors?! If they add the Mini-Con Assault Team and UW Computron, I'm probably going to have a heart attack. :eek: 

    EDIT: Scratch that Mini-Con part, they DO have the Mini-Con Assault Team! What is happening right now?
