    When Unicron’s box arrived yesterday afternoon I got dizzy, for a variety of reasons. Happily, no QC issues! That was my number one concern.

    Does anyone have any experience of what BBTS would do if an order was returned to sender. I posted my tale in the Unicron thread, but I’m worried if there is an issue with the Walgreens FedEx is sending my order to that Unicron will be returned back to BBTS.

    The store won’t put my Unicron back up for sale, right? I don’t want a refund or anything… I just want Unicron ;_;

    And showed up yesterday afternoon. There's a hole poked in the box through the shipper but the figure isn't damaged at all, he's incredibly well packed by BBTS and his foam insert. We all know he's gonna be big, but the mass of this box is just daunting. Here it is with my cat for scale, who's a chonky 19 pounder.

    That's even better. Now you can make a spaceship with those

    For what it’s worth, the tracking for my package started updating this morning. It’s a couple cities away from its destination...but the estimated delivery date still shows as “pending”.

    Well that was fast. Got a good sized PoL processed, shipped, and delivered in 6 days. This time tracking basically started at Osseo, then updated the town on delivery day.

    Took you even longer than it took me. Maybe one day soon I'll actually open him! I've been wanting an Autobot Constructicon! But those thrilling 30 shell packages give me anxiety to open. I don't know how to open them "gracefully". But where I REALLY caved was that wonderful T30 Whirl for $40. My current POL shipment that's arriving today has that one, and I can't WAIT to open that one. Along with Netflix Nemesis Prime!

    But man, sometimes refreshing the New Arrivals page on BBTS is unpleasant for days at a time. Like with that unnerving Spider-Gwen that managed to be on the front page for a week, lol. But this one is extra horrifying :(

    It's a much better figure than people gave it credit for at the time. Just be careful with legs as supposedly it's easy to bend them the wrong way and break them.

    Funny thing, I never saw that Leader Primal in a store ever, however when I was at the Transformers Ride in Universal Florida they had TONS of him. Apparently he's been clogging their shelves for a while.

    Ironically though, they had ALL of Kingdom Wave 2, all size classes. I have still yet to see any of them locally.

    There was some discussion on another thread of what officially counts as a shelf warmer, and although I like Scoop, I'm gonna go ahead and say "available for half price seven years later" is a good starting place.

    I saw him a couple of months later, once or twice, at local stores but by then I had mine and didn't have room to pick up a second, nor should I have when others needed it too. I had him preordered in the US, but they didn't get him in, and somehow Amazon Japan did...which is incredibly rare, so I went with them. By the time I would've paid US retail, taxes, and shipping...It would've been roughly the same price I paid to import him via AJP. Give or take a dollar or two and I had him before US retail had him. It was ridiculous.

    If only we had known that was going to be the beginning of distribution issues by Has/Tak... *sigh*

    The Osseo Black Hole is currently accelerating my package around the perimeter of its accretion disc. It should come punching through our entire planet at 3\4 of the speed of light later today with no warning.
