    Haha You have quite the list! I'm sort of in the same boat with the frustrations of trying to make sure I have enough money to cover something if say, items dropped THE WEEK I had to pay my rent or something. But for me, I have just tried to make sure I have $X in my bank account so that I can always have these items covered. My biggest flaw right now is getting the itch to get another figure from somewhere else (Like that Whirl I just ordered from eBay hah) and then checking my bank, checking dates, and checking preorder statuses before hitting that "buy" button.

    I'm really trying to get 1 site lined up and stick with it. ShowZ and BBTS seemed to be where I purchase from the most, Toy Dojo and TCP being great alternatives as well. I also get the urge to order something on Show Z and then BBTS lists it a few months after.

    /Long post my bad

    Fortunately, BBTS doesn't consider it a big problem to extend your order's auto-cancellation if you need more time to pay, just gotta ask. They gave me an extra 2 weeks to pay for my Ark, which I finally just covered last night.

    My apologies if I came across as rude. I let my impatience at the lack of preorders get the better of me and made a joke that feels a bit tone-deaf in retrospect. If I offended you, I’m sorry.

    Don't get me wrong, I still order lots from them and will continue to do in the future. Aside from that they've also been good at helping me with other things. Just how they responded to that particular issue made me scratch my head.

    Oh no way! I just didn't understand if you were saying Hasbro continues to find ways to get product out or what.

    I hit 'ship' on my PoL yesterday, and I just got an email saying it's shipped. Happy October birthday to me! :D

    Give it time youngling. Then you can know the joy of hitting ship on a PoL only to have something hit your PoL as it ships or just after it shipped.

    Thanks. I have all of them on preorder with Amazon through the wish list trick but I preordered Pipes and Slammer to be safe. Those two will be the hardest to get in my opinion.

    Thanks, I grabbed Pipes, Slammer, and Waspinator. It will be nice to avoid all the absurd false scarcity that will be created with Slammer and Waspinator.


    I can't wait to experience this in 9 days lol.


    Indeed, there's no way people won't be trying to instantly mark Tigatron up to $60+.


    Waspinator and Shadow Panther probably will most like arrive/ship based on retail stores receiving their orders.

    However, I'm at a loss as to how a Wave 4 case contains Shadow Panther, Waspinator, Slammer, and Pipes because that's not the assortment chain stores are getting. I can't see how Slammer and Pipes will drop in October. Then again, Waspinator and Shadow Panther appeared out of thin air.

    I only have 1 item in my preorder list that keeps getting pushed back (Earthrise Skywarp & Thundercracker) but that has vonsistently been pushed back everywhere.

    I just want SHF Launch to show up. I know Bandai/Bluefin drag their feet for about a month with US shops but she was due in July.

    10 for October, but not pushed back. Looking like 29 in a few days. 18 days until I have to ship my PoL and was hoping a few of them came in by then.
