    Well no idea where my package is, did the usual Osseno limbo crap. Said it'd be here today, but the tracking hasn't been update since tues when it said it left from there and nothing updated since. Now just is "delivery pending" with no ETA or update either. So I'm guessing unless it comes tomorrow I prob shouldn't expect it till Monday now <_<

    At this point I’m more concerned with BBTS shipping my Magnus than a cosmetic shoulder thing.

    Anyone have an idea on when these will get in (Cupola and Ironwill specifically)? They don't have an estimated date and I'm wanting to ship my PoL soon. I thought they were labeled as warehouse finds, but maybe they just found stock somewhere? I figured if they were a warehouse find they'd already have the stock.

    Also, I'm canceling Galvatron from my PoL. I found one locally with the shoulders the right way around. Not sure how that's handled since it's still on preorder, it might just move it to the next person's PoL.

    I ordered MAAS Skiff and Gold set from that Third Party Finds link. It was also a pre-order with no estimated date.

    I did email BBTS last week asking when it would be in (so I can beat my POL expiration date), and they replied on 6/18 saying they don't have a definitive arrival date and just rely on whenever their distributor/manufacturer sends them the items, but they will check with their product team for a date if they hear anything about a definitive date.

    So basically ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Also, just noticed on that "Third Party Finds" link they added another MAAS Skiff repaint/Bug Bite version that wasn't there before, 8 pre-order spots left, and it says arrival July, so may my G1 Episode 1 Cybertonian mode Bumblebee (and Gold Bug) will arrive next month.

    Man I wish I liked those figures More, I have the glyph and it’s only just okay. I also noticed now they have a ton of old figuarts for cheap for anyone who does those

    Yo, that red Unrustable Bastard...

    I put a PO in, just in case I am gonna really want it. But that price is a bit steep. I'll have to consider it.

    if you're remotely interested you should keep it at that price. it's not bad at all considering it was a tier unlock in the kickstarter campaign.

    it's pretty exclusive and i don't believe a whole lot was made.

    Supposedly my Chatter arrive tomorrow, but it hasn't updated beyond 'Arrived at FedEx in Osseo, MN'. I suppose we'll see by the end of day tomorrow..

    My other pre-order (Cang Toys Firmament) is still just '2nd quarter 2021' so I have no hope of seeing it any time soon. When I asked them I got the same answer HunterGreen is....so probably by mid-July if there's no word on it I'mma probably cancel it out.

    I am a touch annoyed that BBTS has Kingdom Scorponok and Wingfinger listed as September whereas everywhere else has them listed for July...I might be done with BBTS after these two orders, honestly. The delays are becoming kind of obscene, and I can't even use the 'shipping is a mess' argument anymore because many sites have had things like Chatter and Firmament for about a month already.

    The one thing I hate about BBTS is they stock so much stupid bullshit that the 'new arrivals' page is almost always a ridiculous waste of time, full of funko pops and other moronic garbage. It's rare that they get a single new Transformer in a given week.

    People also buy Bud Light and Newport Cigarettes. Not my problem, not my interest, similar levels of stupid. Would love if the site allowed me to filter the "new arrivals" slug list effectively.

    Wait, you can't filter new arrivals? Who designed that crap?

    New arrivals is a daily check for me, just a minute or two to check new preorders and arrivals to see if there is anything of interest to me and then I go on with my day. There is a always a bunch of stuff I'm not interested in but sometimes theres surprises. I'm actually thankful I dont see see stuff I want daily on new arrivals. I can be kinda impulsive on my purchases.

    "New Arrivals" and "Featured Pre-orders" are "slug lists" which means they don't access or display the usual filter options.

    You can instead view every product on the entire website by entering a blank search, sorting by "new and popular", and then applying other filters such as "Transforming Figures", but I have noted that some items don't show up in this view, for reasons I can't explain. So I am stuck using the "slug list".
