Some of my other JoyToy pre-orders are shipping soon from BBTS and sadly I now think I will dive into their Warhammer. Gonna be expensive as ThreeZero Transformers MDX are looking damn good too.....aye this hobby is an amazing money pit :shock:

Their site is blocked on my work comp but POs are apparently up at Locker Toys:

Not familiar with them; have you ordered from them before?

I've gotten a few things from Locker and they're a solid distributor. The owner is connected somehow to the Joy Toy factory - I THINK - and is pretty much the first place they show up for outside-China sales. I don't use them a lot simply because I just don't have to have everything NOWNOWNOW, which is their specialty. I do have a pair of the Steel Legion repaints on PO, mostly as I had mistakenly thought they were a 4pack and Locker was breaking them out to singles.

AFAIK Games Workshop still hasn't gotten their allotment of figures from their POs and my gut tells me that *ALL* the Warhammer figures currently out there went through their hands first.

I visited the site and may try it. I think I am getting some eBay gift cards from loved ones though so will wait. Could be a good future source for Warhammer depending on how far JoyToy takes it.

I snagged a Brother Aurelian Inquisitor off ebay Friday afternoon and a_dream_deferred got it to me yday, the quickest turnaround for anything I've ever bought not from Prime. I'm *very* happy with the guy, even moreso than I had been before grabbing a few JoyToy items from him/her.

Aurelian is quite cool and the praise these figures are getting is legit; although I hope they fix a couple of issues going forward. The knee joints need to be more space-filling so the kneepad doesn't look like it's floating when the leg is bent, and the pistol needs to be insertable/removable from the holster. The left grippy hand is too loose for the knife, which is the only thing that hand would hold. The right grippy hand is almost as loose. Aside from these minor quibbles I'm impressed with how bad-ass this MFer looks next to everything I place him.

I’m going to wait and see if Games Workshop puts up preorders for the Intercessors and Blood Angels. The previous Space Marines were $100 for a 4pk, so BBTS’ $150 seems high.

I ended up preordering the librarian and the squad of Ultramarines from Locker Toys, and the total, after shipping, was 1357 HKD, which comes out to $174.01 USD, total.

That's a lot better than the $250 or so that would cost at BBTS! (after taxes)

I can't decide between the Blood Angels or the Ultramarines, myself.

The Blood Angels are awesome, for sure, but the Librarian made it an easy choice for me. I'm interested to see how many other chapters they start to visit.

I got the BBTS email today - I will dive in on the Space Marines at least, but want the Reivers set more. And that Librarian....

Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing their take on Adeptus Mechanicus.
