I know that people were saying the BBTS warehouses were flooded, and maybe the figures people are gettign are the result of the products being moved in a hurry and thrown into a bin or something.
Maybe they had some mis management in the warehouse and just shipped these out like we see, and said let customer service deal with things if the random people who get these have issues.
I would hope that BBTS makes this up to you in a big way because they could potenitally lose alot of business as word can travel fast here on the hisstank where there is a plethura of joe collectors.
Im no professionla toy grader by any means but alot of th eimages I saw in know way were atleast c-8 in my opinion. I would be ma dmyself if i got figures in those conditions!
Crazy thing is i had to cancel my order for these figs due ot money problems, and always finding them in stores before they are shipped. But I haven't heard of any wave 10 sightings in michigan yet.

I bet a lot of X-Box 360s that were sent off to be repaired, were what crushed A.V.A.C.s box because they were sitting on top of it during shipping. (I've had to send my X-box 360 off 3 times already, the darn things are buggier than Alabama in June.) And achuc's case of figures was used for practice by a professional Hackey Sack player. Now I'm getting scared about the 3 BBTS exclusive TransFormers busts I've pre-ordered. I marked collectors grade on them, and am not to worried about Prowl and BlueStreak because they're car doors are probably attached by magnets like the Jazz one I previously ordered. But the Frenzy & Ravage one is a different story.

I've been ordering all of my Joe toys from BBTS now for the last 9 months. So far I have never had any packages/figures ruined or even slightly damaged. I don't even pay for the collector grade, I just get standard and they have always been as good, if not better, than any figure's card I see in the store usually.

sounds to me like BBTS didn't do anything wrong, and everybody bitching in here needs to appologize to them.
They sent him exactly what he ordered. If he wanted it protected nicely to keep MOC, he should have ordered collectors grade. If he wanted a shot at a variant, he should have ordered cases. (no, ordering 6 sets doesn't in anyway mean you should get a variant). If you order 36 single figures, I don't see how they could protect them. They have to put them in a large box obviously. If you ordered a couple sets, I am sure they would have been completely fine.
And no, the description wasn't misleading. You just needed to read it.
You should be hasslin the shipping company who squished your box, not BBTS.
(BTW, does it seem that there are more than 36 figures in that pic, or is that just me?)

After looking at AVAC's pics I thought it was probably damaged in shipping. After looking at achuc's pics and reading how AVAC's shipment was packed, I think someone at the warehouse is getting fired.
I've had many many orders shipped from BBTS and not once has it ever been packed with anything but care. In fact, I usually get slightly annoyed at all of the bubble wrap I have to pop after unpacking everything. I don't order collector's grade, either. Twice I've gotten items that were defective, one was replaced and on one I got store credit (no more available), both times they told me not to bother returning the defective item. I have no reason to believe they won't make this right for both AVAC and achuc.
And to the people who keep insisting BBTS is cherry-picking cases... they're not. Quite a few people have reported getting variants in both wave 10 and the wave 5 comic packs... and that's just recently. But apparently these reports get overlooked because it's not conspiracy-theory enough. Facts > innuendo. Seriously.
tl;dr You guys should be fine.

To be fair, AVAC did say that "Collector's Grade" wasn't available when he ordered
