Preorders are up for a MP Red Alert reissue in the 4th quarter.
Looks like they opened up the single Generations Deluxe Scoop, with shipping it will only be a couple of dollars more than store and I won't have to waste time digging in those empty husks of to departments.
Hopefully, they will get them in before TRU or Hasbro Toy shop gets them in and the code makes it cheaper that at BBTS.
I hope this drought of Generations figures in stores ends soon. I can get them for significantly cheaper with free giftcards in stores.
My PoL shipped!
I'd likely order these if there was any indication of what size they are. Postage stamp? Hockey puck? 4"x3"? 5"x6"? 1"x2"?
Even though the preorder for Scoop is March for some reason it processed so I cancelled it. Hope to find it cheaper in stores.
I thought about it but by the time they mark the deluxes back up to $15 ish it will be cheaper than driving around looking for it everywhere.
Anyone else a little surprised that the BBTS 'Shared Exclusive' YOTH MP-10 Optimus Prime pre-order has already sold out? I liked it (right kind of weird for me) and have one on pre-order, but I thought there was quite a bit of hate for it.
It's an MP so one way or another they could have smeared an MP10 in crap and it would probably have sold through...especially if it really was in small numbers to begin with.
I'm giving up completely on BBTS for deluxes and below, it's just not worth the confusion when I can pick them up pretty much anywhere way faster than this.
Is it me or is BBTS slacking in the shipping department lately? The last 3 orders I've placed with them, they didn't even bother to supply a tracking number.
Not a major complaint, but I'd rather not have to drive to the Post Office for no reason just to get bummed.
I thought there was a lot of hate for it too, but considering the cheapest way to get the mold is a drastically different color scheme at $160, I suppose people are just giving up on a regular Optimus colored MP-10 and dealing with this.
Well you can't view "selling out" by itself. Need to know how many they had made.
-People love to bitch about stuff just to buy it anyways (see: me with anything TFCC / BotCon does)
-It's still a MP figure
-It's still an Optimus figure
I agree with the first two for sure. However exclusive reissues of Optimus Prime don't seem to be a guarantee. the major current example being the YOS Energon repaint Optimus.
This was exactly why I ordered one.
You dont have a tracking # in your account? I dont think they sent one in the email but all of my orders have the tracking number listed in my account history.
For the few of you who are not receiving tracking emails. Please check your spam folders or make sure the emails are not being blocked for some reason. Feel free to email [email protected] at any time as well. Our system automatically sends out tracking info for every single shipment that goes out the door, so the email is not reaching you for some reason.
Also - we do have more YOTH Prime and Starscream, Hasbro recently informed us they want to revert to the 2/1 on-site date, so they will be shown as in-stock on 2/1.
Joel - Thanks for the personal response. Any chance you could answer any question about when the New Transformers Legends Preorders might be going live on your site (Specifically Swerve and Cosmos)?
As a person who will have 4 versions of the mold come Feb, I'd have to say from what I've seen, giving up on MP 10 for him might not be that bad. It looks like the color of red and blue could be even better than takaras definitely better than hasbros, and the only real downside is the black and gold. But those might be easy fixes if you can get a junker optimus. Who knows.
Wait does this mean they have them in stock right now? Damn I hope its the same for MP 16... I'll be waiting on him to ship my loot.
