    I do find it odd and definitely kind of annoying. While I've been able to procure almost everything I've wanted from all the current lines, I personally like the one stop shopping style of just clicking a ton of pre-orders and giving the hunt a rest.
    Looking for any specific Classics figures? Let me know via PM what you might be looking for and I'll look through some boxes and see if we can help each other out!

    Yeah, it is a little odd, but I'm hoping they'll be up next week.
    Way I see it, wave 8 preorder came in mid Feb, and iirc, Malaysia then got the wave like the very next week. I know they definitely got it before the end of Feb.
    This being exactly 3 months later, and Malaysia getting the wave on time, I would hope that we'll see the preorders before the month ends.

    As far as items hitting POL right after shipping items, I have noticed that items hit my POL on Friday more than any other day. And I have this notion that sometimes they get backed up and things actually come into their warehouse, but they don't mark them as received right away. Just a feeling I have.

    I don't know how BBTS' warehouse works. So they actually pull the items we put into POL and physically move them into another section of the warehouse? Or do they just digitally mark them as unavailable so no one picks them for another order? I've never heard of anything hitting someone's POL and then it being removed - and since errors happen - my guess is they have a physical section. So *IF* they have a physical POL section, they only have so much room in the POL portion of their warehouse. Maybe when it gets filled up, they can't move any new items into the POL section, so if an order comes in that was mainly or entirely preordered, they just don't mark it as being received yet (to us). Then once people start shipping POL's, there's now room, the items get moved over and that's when it gets marked in house.

    It's all just conjecture. I agree with dormann, I don't think they'd do it to get another $4 in the coffers, but there could be another logistical reason, something like what I'm mentioning here.

    ****

    And yes, where are all the preorders? I've been thinking that for a while. Maybe Mattel put the smackdown on early preorders. There have been a few incidents recently where preorders went up fast after announcement (or even before) and then were taken back down.

    My 2 Sun-Men just arrived from BBTS and I really like the figure. It is weird and unexpected and totally at insane as other MOTU characters - it really fits right in. Really digging the bright colors and the star boots.

    I remember seeing these guys back in the day every so often. A few kids had them mixed in with their MOTU and I saw them at TRU from time to time. To see them now, all these years later, fully incorporated into MOTU proper just feels...right.

    Now bring on Bravestarr! More space cowboys please!

    My Sun Man arrived last week, and he looks great. Does anyone know when the other Rulers of the Sun figures are supposed to be available for pre-order?

    At this point we only know that Pig-Head is in the next wave. All the other figures are still up in the air as to when and how they'll come out.

    Ten Horde Troopers hit my pile of loot.
    I was going to get only two, but when I saw Mantenna, Leech and Grizzlor, I couldn't resist getting eight more for them to command.

    Same here, hitting every walmart/target I see isn't a priority anymore.
