    Prime & Mirage, gone! I'd preordered them back when they were being offered at the time of this thread:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=102445

    I just checked my account ten minutes ago, and they're gone! I can't find anything about me ever ordering OP or Mirage. No emails about them, either. What's the effing deal? Am I the only one this has happened to? Will everything be back to normal tomorrow?

    I've had Amazon cancel orders on my before. Mostly because there was a typo in the price and buyers hop on it.

    Amazon and TRU.com split up. Toys R Us is doing there own thing now. I had the Marvel Legends 14 wave pre-ordered and it was cancelled. The split occured in August I believe so all pre-orders that couldn't be fullfilled by then were cancelled around that time. You'll have to order through TRU.com (which sucks so I recomend ordering through someone else if you can).

    They emailed me on 9/1 about cancelling my Mirage order because they couldn't find any supply through their sources.

    I've had them cancel only one other order (though I don't order from them too much) which was the CD Soundtrack of Panzer Dragoon Orta. It said available in 3-4 weeks, but I knew it was OOP. Gave it a shot anyway.

    I had kb cancel some toys because they were on preorder, but I guess they weren't able to fill it. I had both of these on order from amazon, but got a notice that it was delayed. I kept the order until I saw walmart.com had them in, so I just ordered from them and cancelled my amazon order.

    I had a Prime and Mirage on order, but cancelled them after finding them locally. I'd say they would've cancelled my order eventually. They had already pushed the estimated ship date back twice.

    I got an e-mail this mourning informing me that my order for Alt's Rumble & Ravage had been canceled as well. I was expecting it however, since the SDCC when they said no more Alternators this year.

    They cancelled mine as well, which is cool since members here hooked me up locally with the Alts I had on order.

    (Thanks again MikeTSI & Shadowking)

    My first post on the boards was about this issue. I remember you had a problem contacting them about it and that you got a totally different answer. Mine was cancelled in July after I contacted Amazon. They e-mailed me saying that TRU and Amazon had split as of July 1st and that they could not fill all orders. As of now Amazon.com has more Transformers than ToysRUs.com but for those that want the BWX Primal vs. Megatron set TRU has it up of pre-order and you can use your old Amazon.com account but you will have to change the password. You can change it back after setting the account up with TRU.

    Yeah, they said they would still fill the order. Had I not found them, I'd have left the order active and waited to see.
