    I'm also on the boat for waiting on G2 Sandstorm. EE and Pulse have estimates of July for him, so I'm not expecting BBTS to get theirs within that 45 days. Sad they missed May, but ah well.

    Now I’m imagining an alternate version of Five Faces of Darkness where Thrull had pools of melted cheese instead of lava.

    If the past 50 years has taught us anything, it's that big companies always tell the truth, especially when it's disadvantageous to their image.

    Have you checked your spam filter for an email, or anything like that? Do you fit the profile that other posters have been talking about (high tendency to cancel orders, etc.) This may help the rest of us understand things better.

    I have canceled a lot in the past, but I’ve been buying from them from years, and have spent thousands on their site. I also have a large pile of loot waiting on Galvatron, among other things. So I’m going to send an email to see what they say.

    In my experience, this is the best course of action, and they take very good care of me. Remember to be polite and understanding, it usually works in your favor! :D

    I feel like I need to ship something before ANYTHING will drop in my pile-of-loot ever again.

    Not saying they're doing that on purpose, but man! That's a clever strategy to reduce overall losses incurred as a result of serving "very efficient" flat rate shipping customers. It's not cheap to send a whole pallet of figures (that are expected to arrive in crisp condition) for just $4. If it were me (in one of my devious and manipulative moods, such as Thursday) I'd try to establish a feedback loop where shipping your POL results in more items being placed in it. People then begin to ship smaller piles of loot in a superstitious attempt to please the Pile of Gods and receive more loot. My overall shipping costs go down because that $4 button gets hit more often. I'm an evil genius, be thankful I have chosen the role of homemaker rather than supervillain.

    Well, all that's in my POL right now is Bug Bite. Dare I pay $29.61 for a Deluxe in an attempt to spawn Galvatron faster!?

    It would certainly invoke nostalgia of the few times I've shopped with TFSource.

    $29.61 for a deluxe from TFSource? You must have bought it on sale.

    Close. I saved the life of Curt's firstborn child, so he felt like he owed me a favor.

    Still waiting on Galvatron, but I ordered like a day after people got the first shipment emails. I’m going hunting at local Targets tomorrow evening so maybe I’ll get lucky

    Got emails that Galvatron & Dr Wu Chatter will be dropping soon! Hopefully they truly mean “soon”.

    Wait for the sword.
    More efficient.
    But keep the pillow.

    Enjoy your spoil till sword arrives.
