Yeah, mine dropped about a week ago and I shipped it right after.
In the last couple of years they have been. Pre-pandemic they automatically shipped a few items from my POL because time had expired. I did take a couple days past the 90 day mark before they automatically shipped out.
I love BBTS, but the "expected by" dates kill me. All I'm waiting on to ship my POL is the DNA kit for SS Shockwave, and it's been in preorder limbo for like 3 months. Obviously I know that's not BBTS's fault, but that "expected by XX" just laughs in my face every time I look.
I’ve got a DNA kit for SS Devy waiting in my POL, but I’m trying to wait as long as I can for my two Yukina Minato figures to come in. They are listed as June after a couple push backs but some other sites have them pegged for June as well
A good chunk of the older mainline Transformers toys on BigBadToyStore appear to be permanently sold out, like stuff from CW, TR, even the Siege Optimus Prime's sold out. In the case of these older toys, will they ever be restocked?
If my items are about to expire and it's something they have in stock I just return for credit and buy again. Instant reset.
Next time it would probably be best to ask here than make a new thread
The Big Bad Toy Store New/Restocked/Shipped/Preorder Items Thread
So I saw Studio Series Shockwave on pre-order on BBTS for $75 (yeah, late fee)… then I noticed Studio Series Shockwave with Scavenger wave in stock also on BBTS for $100.
Okay, so I buy the $100 set instead, sell Scavenger for ~$40-50 on eBay with free shipping… I still basically end up paying ~$75 for Shockwave after shipping and eBay fees, yeah?
fuck I didn't see that. My bad
so what happens to older toys like the ones from CW up to Siege? Are they ever coming back?
I would prefer if they use their other term, "Expected to arrive *blank* quarter 202X" rather then a month. Like give me a time frame not a month and no issues, it might show up in April first day. Maybe the end of june. All I know if from April to June is a better way of saying We think it is around here so hold your breath and hope for soon, if not, eventually
They get older figures from time to time. Combiner wars Groove came back in stock a couple months ago. They have Predaking up for pre order.. for $250. You just kind of have to poke around periodically.
They have Thrilling 30 figures on there still as well, they even got some stock of Brainstorm. It's basically there so they don't have to keep putting it up if they get new sealed versions of their figures
Thanks… it should not be much longer
So I opened my front door this morning...
And what the heck!?
Wow. More like Big Fast Toy Store. I triggered my POL on Monday and here it is! This was smaller than my typical pile of loot, but I was feeling itchy to play Galvatron Lottery!
Hit ship on my PoL around 12 pm est. Already packed. Granted Fed Ex is not likely to do a pick-up till Monday, but still, I was shocked.

Sticking with my idea of themes when I ship. Next one is Funko POPs and Masters of the Universe. After that, Unicron (finally).
What was the verdict on your Galvatron?
Incorrect shoulders. I am probably not gonna do anything about it at all.
