    I just said screw it and bought a Beachcomber and SS86 Frenzy from some Japanese Anime Figure site. Cost less than any of the ebay listings even with overseas shipping.

    Dang that sucks. Thanks for the replies, though. I might just go the eBay route. An extra $25 over retail will be worth the piece of mind. Then BBTS will start fulfilling the orders lol everybody wins.

    I had my preorder in early and recieved an e-mail a few months back about the delay to August. Not in a super hurry over Beachcomber but hopefully it doesn't turn into a repeat of retro Black Spiderman.

    Yikes, just saw this on TFWiki:

    “Many retailers did not get Devcon in the 7th wave, instead receiving solid cases of the individual characters Tarantulas, Axlegrease, and Beachcomber, and remained scarce months after, leading to rumors that Devcon may have been pulled out of the wave in mid-distribution, possibly related to the concurrent pre-order cancellations of the Nacelle Amazon exclusive.”

    I just want an Axlegrease. I didn't pre-order it because I thought that since it was a retool of Scraphook it would be easy to find.

    I am a fool.

    Hmm...Feels like something that could use a citation or at least some elaboration.

    Traumatic Cashgrab Series 3-pack just arrived from BBTS!

    Awesome packaging as always and only took 5 days to arrive with the $4 option! :thumb 

    It’s a gorgeous set in-hand! Was worried I was going to get a floppy knees Megatron from some reviews I’ve seen, but my copy is solid (no flop when you shake, nor topple backwards when posing)!

    I had a huge POL that I finally shipped and for the first time I can remember, they split it into two boxes (no extra charge). The big box came via fedex, the smaller box via the dreaded DHL, but the amazing part is that they came only a day apart.

    Nemesis is processing. Does this mean other vendors will have it too?

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the robot mode. Plus you gotta get the Shockwave's Lab LED eye upgrade for that *chef's kiss* perfect final touch

    Yep, I have both Ark and Nemesis. Ark is two screws and Nemesis was three screws. Take heads apart, pull out old light piping piece, install the LED Eye parts and reassemble. Couldn't be easier! The new eye parts use CR927 3V batteries (if buying your own batteries, Make sure you DON'T BUY CR927 1.5V!!!). Some eBay sellers include batteries and some don't. I usually buy from sweetmall-1/sugar-girl0309 and they include batteries to US customers.

    Is there a switch to easily turn them on/off?
