    Aw, I missed a chance to grab Thrilling 30 Waspinator and Windblade from BBTS last night. Don’t know if I want to throw down for a whole case just for those two, but they have a good deal on T30 Arcee and Chromia together.

    My shipment is currently in the Osseo anomaly, but is scheduled to be here in Ohio tomorrow. With Fedex though I’m expecting it to at least be a day late.

    Has anyone noticed some shenanigans with the length of time items have left in their POL? I had an item I swear was down to 12 days a few weeks ago but now has 15 days left. Do they add time (a handful of days) when you add an item? Am I crazy?

    I thought I saw a couple of post a few pages back that mention time was added because of ongoing disasters. Or maybe I'm crazy.

    I wondered if that might have been the case. I’m waiting on 3 items to ship and it’s going to be close!

    Last year they had two instances where they added 90 days to everything in PoL's, I still have several items with well over 100 days left. I am wondering if they may have added 3 days to everything, to deal with the storms and people unable to respond due to power losses. I could have sworn I had stuff winding down, and was going to cut it close, but now, not so much.

    I noticed the same with my POL. It’s certainly appreciated, as I’ve got a bunch of stuff that should be in stock but is delayed.

    I got some extra time added at random. I didn't buy anything new. I think they might be overburdened right now due to the weather.

    I've had an item that seems to keep getting an extension because every single time I check, it says I have 20+ days left. Lol

    So it seems like they are certainly allowing items to stay in the POL for much longer than the normally allotted time. (Which is great for me because I have a lot of things on pre-order that just keep getting pushed back.) So I'm okay with being patient if they allow the items to be held! :D

    At $150, I figured I’d go in on the warbotron Bruticus. Pre-order, estimated arrival February. Anyone else going for that? Any reason I shouldn’t?

    I got the Warbatron Computron set from bbts for $150 last year, not too bad imo. Been wanting the first Warbatron combiner, I have had the Bruticus one on preorder the moment it went up. For a set that was $500-600 originally, $150 is a steal.

    I am waiting for that to arrive as well. Though I am going to ship my PoL later today after work anyway.

    Anyone else have a FedEx package chilling in MN. Going on a week now. Not sure if it’s just weather delayed or lost.

    If it's in Osseo, MN, you will have to wait for the dimensional doors to realign to release it from that blackhole of an area. :D 
    They don't always update scans of tracking numbers. It might be on it's way already or could be the weather. Wait another day or two to see if it updates. Has happen to me and a lot of others this past year.

    My latest POL took 7 days to process but then once it finally got out the door on Friday, it was delivered to me in Michigan this morning (Sunday), so that was unexpectedly nice.
