THIS IS SPARTA!!
Join Date: Sep 2007
Let's face it, with the last few waves BBTS has been crushing retail at getting Joes in 1st. ^_^ Now I am so excited to finally get wave 13!!
No for the minor rant:
But I just can't believe HOW LONG It takes for them between the time they charge me, & then finally ship it.
Charged last Wednesday for my wave 13 figs, & I was so excited, then (granted there was Thanksgiving weekend) finally got the notice that they SHIPPED today (a week later. ) So I guess I will have them in hand NEXT Wednesday instead of sometime later this week.
Even when you get the best shipping available, you are still waiting WAY to long for this stuff to go from warehouse to in your hands.
What is the deal? Understaffed? To many orders? It just amazes me how long I have to wait for BBTS to actually send me stuff after I get the "we charged you" notice.
But it's all good, I appreciate their service & it will still be light-years ahead of when I see them at retail. Any you Tankers feel this way? Or have any insight on why the wait from charge to ship?
What can I say I am anxious to get my Joes!! LOL!!

Usually I don't have to wait long from payment to shipping. Maybe a day. But this time I'm in the same boat as you. And mine are still in the warehouse stage. A couple of things come to mind.
1. I had my pile of loot turned on, so I'm sure that accounts for some delay, with other things to ship.
2. last week was a holiday week which always messes up ups's shipping schedule.
so hopefully, mine will ship out by tomorrow and I'll have it early next week!

I was thinking the exact thing today when they sent me a notice that my wave 4 vehicles shipped. Being in Canada I won't see these for 2 weeks. There is no way Canadian retail will beat BBTS, still haven't seen wave 10. But I love BBTS would not have half the stuff I have now without them

They never sent my w11 rev1 set, weeks after they shipped the initial cases. Finally cancelled it today. Lame. Hope I get confirmation on w13 soon.

I don't know what I would do without BBTS. Here in NYC, the pegs are barren.

They did send out a email after the Thanksgiving, that they were about 4 days behind, that's why I haven't had them send me my POL yet.

Wow Steel Brigade, small world. I ordered my set (and an extra Duke) last Tuesday and I just got the notification today that they shipped!
I just need to get an extra Blowtorch to open and I'm good on all of the waves thus far.
I can't wait to get this set next week!

What I hate is having something in the pile of loot. Waiting a week or even a few weeks just encase another pre-order arrives. Then getting impatiant and having my pile shipped. Get the e-mail my order shipped and then same day or next day the next pre-order arrive lol. Thats happened to me three times now the past two months.
