    My Siege Omega Supreme just hit my pile of loot. The listing on their site still shows preorder though.

    That's what should be done, actually. The store should fulfill pre-orders first before listing for general sale.

    Mine came in too. Likely a partial fulfillment of their order, and waiting for the rest to come in. An earlier post had shown that that's what BBTS has been dealing with lately.

    Got my Omega Supreme in my pile of loot too! Have been waiting just for him so of course as soon as he was ready for me to ship him out with my other items, which included the Titans Return Overlord and the Perfect Effect upgrade kit for Abominus, I made sure to ship all three this morning. Soooo excited to receive Siege Omega Supreme finally! Never again will I hesitate to purchase a Titan class figure as beautiful as Omega Supreme again..!

    Yeah what the hell... totally unexpected!! I woke up this morning with an email sent to me from BBTS saying my Siege Omega Supreme Pre_Order has Arrived and Has been Processed and will ship soon? Crazy thing is I have had that thing on Pre-Order for like 5 almost 6 months now and never thought they would ever get him back into stock..!! Im in shock right now and don't know weather I am happy or mad..

    I'm wondering how long before the next wave of Earthrise washes over us? I've got a substantial POL that I'm considering shipping, but have this sneaking suspicion the day after it ships I'll get a dump of a whole bunch of other stuff.

    Tempted to jump on Omega and see if they get more in, but I have to be extremely careful about my Titan purchases. Only so much room to go 'round in my display, though I do like the idea of stuffing Omega on one end and Scorponok on the other with the ramp bots and little base bots forming a highway between them. Hmm.

    Lots of preorders listed today but really dubious desirability. I wish they'd let us manage our subscriptions. Subscribe me to related items when I buy something, sure, but let me off that list that spams me with random Evangelion/MLP statues because I bought an Asuka figure 15 years ago.

    I've already gotten my OS months ago from bbts.

    Some of us gambled that he would hit markdown like the other titans have. He didn't , sold out everywhere and has hit a pretty hefty aftermarket "waiting tax". To get him at pretty much original retail is a cause for many of us to celebrate. Especially as noted by another poster above, we've had him on preorder with BBTS for multiple months.

    Are you sure about those R.E.D. figures? They aren't even offered through BBTS that I can see.

    Exactly this. It's a weird post-TRU world we live in now but they were definitely the source of titan-class discounts in the past when it came to places like ROSS, TJ Maxx and Burlington. Without TRU, Hasbro is apparently making less product to match retailer demand...resulting in far fewer discounts. I didn't foresee that level of drop off. BBTS gave me and others a second chance.

    I don't think those of us still waiting for the spy patrol are going to get the set at this point...

    That's not really all of it, though. As with Siege in general, Omega Supreme was also a substantial jump in quality compared to previous Titans. He didn't immediately sell out, though, primarily due to price, and it took several months to do that. I didn't think a restock was coming but that's good news obviously.

    Estimated date of July doesn't mean July 1. The fact they changed it to "mid" July means they really do expect to get it soon as opposed to bumping months back. They normally don't put "mid" for estimates.

    Has anyone who preordered Omega not had him drop yet? Mine is still marked as a preorder.
