BWTF Sponsor Bigbadtoystore has put up pre-orders for "Movie Advanced" Decepticon Stinger! As you know, Stinger has yet to receive a "Generations" style figure so this is it. Due to various issues, he is a redeco of Bumblebee instead of being an original figure, but he still looks very cool in my book. Pre-Order your Decepticon Stinger here and help support BWTF!
