I wish, but Shadow Scyther is going to be one of their 2011 products I believe.

HOLY CRAP!!

When it was announced that these two would be released in December, I assumed it would be on the 31st if we were lucky. But for them to be released before we're even half way through the month? That's just shiny!

Between these and Hot Toys' War Machine, Christmas has indeed come early for me. And probably won't come at all for those people I know. Hehe.

Well, same thing happened here with Protector/Sidearm as did with the Bruticus upgrade from FP, I had them all nicely pre-ordered at BBTS but Toy Arena gets them well in advance, so I hate to say it but BBTS loses my business yet again due to me canceling with BBTS and going with TA.

I'm keeping my order with BBTS. These guys have been really great with some situations recently on a couple of orders that my wife made mistakes on, as well as some of my own goof ups in the past. Plus I'm patient about this one for some reason, not to mention the fact that I have Predaking under the tree as we speak. Call me crazy but I really like getting my stuff from BBTS. The items have always been packed great, there have never been any problems with the toys, and like I said , their customer service has been awesome (thanks Jessica). :KREMZEEK:

Completely agree. They've been very nice, very helpful, and overall just a very good business. I stick with BBTS because of a variety of reasons that generally add up to the "overall BBTS experience". BBTS's stock of Protectors and Sidearms will come in eventually, and they'll go into my Pile of Loot. And I too, really like getting stuff from BBTS, especially when I'm shipping a Pile - it's like my own personal Christmas!

LOST Cybertronian wrote:Agreed. I always buy from BBTS unless they don't have it in stock.

Yup, and thus far they haven't had anything I've wanted out of stock. They're really good about their supply.

Actually what I meant to say was unless something was sold out. Which on occasion I am late for the party so I have to search elsewhere.

i'm getting them from BBTS as well. good service, they have.
although i did move my MP roddy preorder to HLJ.com, but only because they are offering him for around 50 dollars less and their customer service is also good

i don't know, since i live in the netherlands :) but they're not more expensive for me than having something shipped in from the US. also, they offer 3 shipping options overseas (SAL, EMS and Fedex)

Hi, Haters :BLACKEYE:

What haters? I dunno about grail status for it. It'll definitely work for my SG display though. I'm actually kinda glad for once that BBTS gets their FP stock kinda late. Money is really tight this Christmas and things aren't really looking up until January. Besides my sob story though, AWESOME! Really excited to get mine eventually. :)

Usually it's between 9 and 10 bucks from BBTS where I live. Their warehouse is in Minnesota, and I live in Mississippi. It takes about 3 days to get to me.

I do...I was just hoping someone would know, otherwise I would have to create a account and get to the shipping part of the ordering process. I would rather not give out card information unless im serious about buying.
