or will be canceled..

so I got this email from BBTS saying that they would be cancelling my pre orders for the figs. because bandai america has informed them that the product may only be shipped to US and Canada and required them to cancel all orders and preorders around the world... WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like either a licensing issue or that they have a different setup coming for their UK and European distribution.

I'm guessing that different setup means charging more!

Well, there is Entertainment Earth, they are a lot like BBTS so you might get the same issue Thundercats - Action Figures, Toys, Bobble Heads, Collectibles at Entertainment Earth
Might keep an eye on the TRU site and check out their new arrivle section, they sometimes post pre orders threre.

My BBTS order also got cancelled. You could try Bobble Heads UK Bobble Heads,Headknockers and Wacky Wobblers across the UK. They have thundercats figures available for pre-order. I decided to order from there. They reckon they will get the bandai stuff in July but obviously I couldn't guarantee this. I can only hope

They won't ship bandai thundercats figures to the UK either. I tried ordering from there as soon as I got the e-maill from BBTS

I have just discovered that the website I suggested to you will not be getting the bandai thundercats products. Sorry mate. I guess we'll have to use ebay.

While I don't think I could help in this respect, maybe some fellow board members here in the states could help those overseas obtain the Thundercats toys and what not. Much like transactions that happen over on TFW for those figures released here, but not others.

If someone was willing to front the cost, I would be more than happy to pick these up for people.

I don't want to see my UK brothers go without these great toys as I know what a big deal they were in Europe.
