    I see they have the RID deluxes in the online store and I see that Soundwave is in stock for shipping. Go to checkout and it says its out of stock now. Fine, I see its available for store pick up and choose it, despite knowing my local Kmart doesn't have it. I go through checkout and get the email saying its ready for pickup but the receipt says its for Bumblebee, I call customer service and they say I will recieve the right item. go to the store and check the front and they don't have any on the racks. Go to pick it up and they hand me bumblebee, and its hard enough to explain without the people working there not knowing the difference in all in what I wanted. Time and gas money wasted.

    Just go to an actual K-Mart store instead. That's where I got my RID Megatron at.

    Yeah, Kmart online is like Hasbro's customer service, they'll send a figure "of equal value". That's one site I strictly avoid.

    Kmart's website has a very long history of being pure shit for collectors. Avoid them like the plague.

    Ordering from K-Mart online is like buying your toys blind packed.

    K-Mart doesn't differentiate between two different figures with the same UPC. They pull based on UPC and not the actual product, and they do it for both in-store pick-up and online orders.

    So if you order Soundwave, whoever is pulling the figures doesn't look for Soundwave -- they just pull the first figure they see that matches the UPC.

    Rarely, very very VERY rarely, you'll get an employee who actually cares enough to pull the RIGHT figures. I had this happen with some Thundercats figures. It was amazing.

    It's a stupid as hell system but that's how they designed. To them, they don't see that you ordered a Transformers Prime Soundwave, just that you ordered a Tranformers Prime Deluxe. Once they pull any Deluxe, bam, order complete.

    Ebay:
    I had the same thing happen to me. I even talked to a representative through Live Chat who assured me my local K-Mart had the items in stock so I went through with it. When I get there, there are 3 DOTM Bumblebees waiting for me.

    However I paid with Paypal. At the store they offered to refund my money all I had to do was swipe my credit card. When I explained I paid by Paypal they refunded my money. When I got home I was still pissed off so I went to K-Mart.com and complained through the same Live Chat and they offered to refund my money via Paypal. I didn't think it would work but the money is still in my Paypal account!

    If you choose to shop online there, it's pretty much this:

    Dude - try adding this guy instead of the gun for a Transformers version. Of course then even less people would get it. :p

    I remember when Kmart.com had HA Mudflap up and people were getting different HA figures. That situation is what keeps me from ever using their online site.

    K-Mart just plain sucks. I don't bother shopping there anymore, and I certainly would never use their website.
