    Hmmm something weird happened to my POL. I moved spinout and krennik out. Got store credit for these Added 3 Han Solo as Stormtrooper figures as they're cheaper than the regular Stormtrooper figure. And had $21 left.

    After the update Got an additional store credit of $6.75 for the shipping. Looked to check and saw I had 7 items instead of 5 in the POL. Spinout and Krennik have made their way back in, still have the store credit.

    Now I've got a free Spinout unless they catch this before I ship.

    Now a big part of me is telling me to tell them about this and, I'll be honest, that part will probably win out.

    Is this a grandfather thing? I have 173 days to ship mine.

    Okay, being able to choose what ships when is totally worth it. Great new feature on the site!

    I think each item will be on its own 180 day counter. Was your item w/173 days paid for a week ago?

    It appears so, though not everything in my loot has the same days remaining. I guess it depends on when you added the item to your loot.

    Losing 90 days is a bummer (used to be 180) but having the option of shipping only some of the loot is a great feature.

    I can't find info on my closed orders. Including an order currently shipped... I hope that changes.

    Yup.

    Also is Paypal for preorders a new thing?

    Im liking the redesigned site so far. And nice that they brought back the $4 flat rate shipping. Much needed refresh. I was hoping for a wishlist option to be added.

    The new about us section is pretty cool in my opinion. Nice summary of their journey up to this point.

    Well, if you had anything significant in your POL then you probably did get some store credit! I ended up with about $28.

    Nice way for BBTS to handle this.

    They got rid of the "choose a payment method later" option. :(

    Well, yes, they did intentionally give me store credit. That's appreciated. I won't be too upset they didn't also accidentally give me store credit. I guess.

    I'm not liking it. I liked being able to scroll through my PO's on one page. I liked seeing more items on the front page.

    Anyone else have a cancelled item show-up in their PoL. I had cancelled a TFC Cerberus, and it looks like its in my PoL again?

    Also,checking inventory is going to be a pain in the ass, now creating separate brackets for the various grades. Granted that could give a better idea on what is actually substandard.

    Looks like it's only 7 days now to cancel an item from POL.

    How do I go to the desktop view on mobile? I surf primarily on mobile (iOS) and do not like the stripped down usability on mobile geared sites

    I agree. There was way more information on the front page before. Now you have to search more. I don't like the preorder page. You can't see all of it at once, and so far it isn't automatically ordered by what is supposed to be in stock first and there is no way to reorganize it. Of course they needed and update, and there are definitely some improvements, but they kind of threw out some of the good. I'll adjust.

    I canceled a TR Kup (wanted the Takara version instead), and it's back in my POL with no way to remove it.

    Not being able to easily see and search my preorders is a BIG DEAL, especially if you have a lot preordered.
