shit i may have to cancel mine to who knows...
they are TAKING FOREVER I have 3 Cases coming from Entertainment earth and then all I will need is Vipers and a few more hiss drivers
I was going to put them in my pile of loot I still might...
i feel bad for BBTS because of the fact they are the ones who are gonna be stuck with alot of unsold wave 7 and they get pissed on by all of us who find them at retail. (i know they will sell them though) Having been someone who has bought directly from hasbro back in the mid 90's (Star wars) I really dislike how they peice meal you your orders.. if you order 100 cases your likley to get "25" or 40 with an unknown ship date for the rest.
it is really frustrating to your customers who don't understand the way the distribution chain works...
sometimes your the top dog..... and other days well your the one holding the sign.. "will work for food" ;)
its not even BBTS fault and if they were first we would have been praising them... So far with me.
It has been Score 1 BBTS (wave 6). -1 BBTS (wave 7)
However I have yet to see any of Wave 7 at any store...

Yea, kinda sucks when specialty stores like BBTS are last to get things. A big % of they're income comes from pre-orders and getting items in before the major chain retailers. If the big stores get em before they do, it hurts.
Do you really think something like Walmart cares whether or not they get Wave 7 in before BBTS, it peanuts....... makes a difference for something like BBTS tho.

Somehow I doubt that BBTS will be left holding a ton of wave 7, how much of the other waves do they have in stock? Especially hot figures. BBTS will sell the stuff they get just fine.

They will make more money because of this. Many of us cancelled preorders for $49.99. Now they will sell this product at $59.99.
My feedback thread is here.

My Entertainment Earth W7 case preorder just went through this weekend. Very excited. Plus my cousin hooked my up with 3 hiss drivers and 4 vipers.

It seems most of us have not gotten them from BBTS yet. I just got my wave 7 in the mail today. Even though it is a little later than the ones I got from the local stores.

I'm still waiting to get my wave 7 from BBTS. Jessica from customer service said they only got 1/4 of their order in right now and are waiting for the rest.

I found some of wave 7 before my BBTS pre-order was in, but didn't find the rest in a store until after my case was available to ship from BBTS. Stuck with my plan to just buy the Vipers and a HISS driver that I found in the stores and wait patiently for my case (which shipped Friday) to get here. With the recent price increase in stores, it wasn't much more than retail.
I won't feel bad for BBTS though. They certainly made plenty from selling the Vipers for $12.99 each (twice retail). Sure some people might find them in stores and cancel those pre-orders like I did, but BBTS will still sell what they will still have left at a decent profit.
