    Same, canceled my Legacy Evolution Dreadwing preorder just yesterday when I found him in a local Walmart. I think it might be a bigger issue if you cancel once it's in stock.

    I cancel quite a bit with BBTS. I got the 5-pack buzzworthy pack in this first wave and I know others who ordered day of and did not. I don't think there is any weighted system or anything for preorders.

    Right. I think when there's limited supply, it's determined by geography or some other factors, not some imagined BBTS score. I think they do punish people who abuse them, but we are talking severe outliers, not 99% of us.

    Man I wish BBTS made it harder to take my money, they always seem perfectly happy to

    I also do not order exclusively from BBTS, and use them as my safety net.

    Anyways, I have a friend of mines who does order exclusively from them, and mentioned that he cancelled two pre-orders within a few weeks of each other. On the following order (I do not recall the figure), a friend of his who had pre-ordered the same figure received their item first. My friend had pre-ordered their figure two months prior. He called customer service about a missing order (not related to that pre-order), and decided to inquire about the unfulfilled pre-order.

    The individual at customer service mentioned something along the lines of (and I'm paraphrasing) "your pre-order space in line is adjusted on your remaining pre-orders based on the number of cancellations within a given time period, but all pre-orders will be fulfilled unless a situation arises outside of our control."

    Now I do know BBTS mentions something on their site about the abuse of their pre-order system, but I suppose any real action is felt by serious abusers (as @RKillian alludes to).

    They still haven't fulfilled Dreadwing yet? That's, what, 6 months ago now since he came out?

    I was reading into it yesterday since I've canceled a few in stock items before that were in my Pile of Loot. It says if you cancel too much, they may take away your ability to cancel.

    I've cancelled a lot of stuff both out of my pre-orders and POL, but I still got my Sandstorm and Snarl pre-orders fulfilled on the first go around.

    Dan Who is streaming right now, and he thinks that the Quinjet tease is for Dragon Man. I'd be stoked if that's true!

    Dragon Man is a FF villain, no?

    I'd say we should expect Wave 3 revealed around the time of the season finale.

    Is that the Juggernaut with feet wheels and Magneto with magnetic hands? I’m having vivid flashbacks!!! Thanks for sharing these!

    Opened Angel tonight. So glad they released him on the Vulcan body. This is the Angel I’ve waited over a decade for. Not the original crew can assemble. Also so glad they released him first in red since that matches his X-Factor colors. I can at least pretend he is in that costume.

    It certainly is!

    The Magneto is actually the SFX one with less magnets and the helmet sculpted on (and wearing a later version's cape).
    I resisted the urge to put Juggernaut's harness on.

    I'm partial to the old Toybiz line.
    I'll be posting more soon.

    No but some of the wave was on there as individual figures weirdly enough.

    That's an 80s Quinjet.

    Looks about right for Red Ronin.

    The fact that he's famous for fighting Godzilla might be a reason to do him now, with Godzilla having a cultural moment.

    that would be an INSANE choice to be made because it's a fairly deep cut character...but I could also see them doing some really cool mech-style extra stuff akin to the Sentinel if it is... (could it be the same size as the Sentinel? Could they somehow manage a Haslab Godzilla?)
