question about preordering from bbts

Postby warwik311 » Wed Oct 07, 2009 8:19 am

Never preordered anything from them before. Preordered the city commander set with the new weapon upgrade. It says "october", but when can I REALLY expect it?

As soon as they get the stock in. They're usually pretty good with dates (Electro Ligier and Strafe were pretty spot on) but the FansProject stuff has been "it's done when it's done", so if things get held up, then BBTS has to wait. Once they get stock, they process the preorders really quickly.

BBTS availablility dates might not be correct, but that's usually not their fault.

Unlike other online stores, they keep a constant update of when things are coming in to the best of their knowledge.

that's kind of what i figured. I only ask because Robot Kingdom says they have CC in stock with the upgrade. I think I'm just gonna impatiently wait it out at BBTS. They have never done me wrong. Now if only I could justify the money spending and pick up a G3 trailer and the MP 04 with trailer. A boy can dream right? :wink:

Robot Kingdom gets things first because they are in hong Kong, closer to the point of origin. BBTS has to wait that extra week for things to cross the Pacific.
