    I spent $400, and that was just all Origins and one Masterverse figure.

    $679 only on origins. 2 of everything, 1 collector grade and 1 standard grade. Crazy how everything came all at once. Had a slight fear of them being sold out so made sure I got what I wanted now

    Not precisely, all pre-orders that don't collect money in advance, will give you a chance to save or allocate the money before they hit. Worst case scenario is you cancel. I like BBTS's system because they allow you to edit the orders before they get charged if you have to.
    Mine went over 1K due to the multiple copies of all the Origins units, especially those damn army builders!... Now, it's time to figure out how to budget for it.

    Between Tuesday and Wednesday, my preorders came in slightly over $300. (Mostly Origins, but a few Masterverse too.) At this point, I'm actually hoping the release dates do get pushed back a little bit. That way I'll have more time to cancel the ones I find at retail and the cost for those I don't cancel will be more spread out as they arrive. I'll finally be able to recreate the art on the back of the Origins Wundar card in a display with the Skeleton Warriors.

    The other nice thing about BBTS is that they warn you of an upcoming pre-order that is coming in (usually a day or 2 before). And also if for whatever reason you still havent saved up enough money by the time it processes (or maybe it just hits at a bad time in the month), they still hold the item for you and give you about 4 days to get the account in order before finally cancelling the item(s).

    Sometimes they do that, but other times they charge you with no warning when it comes in

    Most of the time, I get those warning emails, however sometimes I get them when the item is already charged! LOL... They do have a glitchy system I assume, or the people who process the orders are either overworked or inept!

    And that's why I check my account regularly and see what it's in my POL just in case I miss a charge!

    Hi everyone!!! Thank Skeletor, itís good to be back! Now I have to get back in the habit after crying my eyes out for a couple months!

    I donít want to add it up but yeah, I spent way too much money this week. 2x everything origins(4 troopers and 4 Infiltrators) and one of all Masterverse. Plus, the darn Mega Power Sword. Ooof! What a week! Iím a little worried about when Moss Man goes up(mainly about Wallyís shipping tactics) but overall, excited about everything coming.

    Missed you all while the site was down. Big hugs.

    Good to see you back bro, however the forums might go down at the end of the month for additional upgrades according to the administration... So be prepared.

    Well that has happened TWICE to me and it never got fixed see that's what companies SHOULD do just check to see if you card can take the charge but some companies really don't care and charge you anyway....

    Same for me, but just for Slamurai (I had ordered 2 Troopers). The sooner the better for these two (and Duplico... for where art thou?!). These ones have had me the most impatient.
    Check out my current ebay auctions!

    Mine are, so far, Teela, Troopers, Slamurai... no sign of Randor yet. And I knew 3rd quarter was gonna be nonsense by recent arrivals, but they really do need to slow down the releases or accidentally prove a certain someone right by accident!

    Got one for Snake Trooper too. Ordered Slamurai from EE in the full case of figures. Very surprised to see it so soon. Hopefully it's not an error.

    Thank you! Itís great to see some friendly faces although, I think I saw a few of us in a couple other forums getting our fix! Itís good to know about the site fixes- at least I wonít be speculating.

    I'm always active in another place with a different screen name and avatar, and occasionally post on YT with my real name and a similar avatar... I post here when I'm able to depending on the mood or the type of discussions I see myself engaging in.
    However, I gotta admit that a few posters here do turn me off with their repulsive attitude or with their lack of knowledge or common sense. But most are friendly and some are even funny.
