    If anyone ordered their GX-88 from Amazon USA please keep us posted on the delivery condition of the shipping box, item box, and contents of your order. Thanks.

    Got mine yesterday from Amazon. It was in a box slightly bigger than its own with no extra padding so it bounced around some. It is in ok shape but pretty much all the corners got smooshed in somewhat. As a collector that likes to keep my boxes, it is pretty disappointing but don't know if there is anything I can really do. Probably should have ordered from BBTS or somewhere that they actually care about packing things. Haven't gotten a chance to get him out of the box so can't say anything about the contents yet.

    Just got another processing soon email for IF Tesarus. I think that takes care of all my BBTS preorders for now.

    They do a Black Friday Sale, not sure how many "great" sales there will be. Usually it's stuff clogging up Inventory that isn't selling at all. HLJ has some legit sales though. But I remember the last Black Friday sales to be a tad lackluster. FansProject had a good sale on their website though, maybe it and Maketoys will have another.

    It’s expensive yes for a legends toy but I couldn’t resist. I missed out on that old unreleased deluxe Henkel classics blue Bumblebee (possibly KO) back in the day but this Bump of Chicken version fills that need nicely!

    Maybe this was the universe telling me it's okay if I don't own this :lol 

    Dang that thing looks awesome, what's its story? Was Japan supposed to get a blue version of that mold or something?

    It's somewhat a mystery whether it was an unreleased Japanese Henkei (because of the chrome) or a knock-off. Personally I lean towards the first since I believe it was shown, along with another unreleased toy (Detritus or Swindle from Universe Hound) at a toy show. A couple of ebay auctions for the Blue Bumblebee popped up years ago, but I couldn't win one since they ended around $300-$400 (!)

    We haven't heard anything about it. It's been over a year since the Devastator and Superion reissues were announced.

    The year before that there were a bunch of potential Legends reissues that Takara didn't do because they didn't get enough pre-orders.

    :eek:  Do you recall which ones off the top of your head?

    Guessing Dev and Superion reissues didn't have rockstar numbers since no reissues were announced in 2019?
