    I did not see this posted here (credit to the allspark.com). Blitzwing is up for order (not preorder) and ships in one day (if you trust HTS...). With 10% off (TF2009), not a bad deal. (I used too many ()'s in this post).

    I took advantage of this. We'll see if he ships when they say he will. If not, then a cancellation is but one phone call away. ;)

    I placed the order for blitzwing last night and I checked my order this morning. It says partially shipped. So at least it's moving towards being shipped.

    My SDCC orders said partially shipped after a couple of days, but it took about a week till it was fully shipped.

    But i'm surprised HTS actually is on time with Blitzwing, being in stock and all. It's a first!!!

    QFT.
    :D 
    I ordered one immediately last night and it also says "Partially Shipped" as of this morning. I will be shocked if this whole thing is for real.

    We'll see, I guess.

    LOL. If that happens I'm seriously going to be laughing at myself.

    Have I learned nothing.

    I probably don't need to say this, but if anyone on here ordered one from HTS and it gets "Fully Shipped" please let us know.

    This should be interesting/aggravating.

    Perhaps "Partially Shipped" means that they sent the box but will send the actual toy at a later time.

    My guess is that "partially shipped" means they "shipped" a copy of the order information to the warehouse and someone there will probably get around to throwing your items in a box and slapping a label on it...






    ...eventually.

    I used to work in mail order, and granted it was a mom & pop business, but still. I sometimes marvel at the length of time it takes for big businesses to ship orders out. I know they(HTS) must get huge amounts of orders but other online retailers seem to manage just fine.

    HTS sure as hell ain't Amazon, are they?

    Just a heads up, I called HTS on my order and the lady looked it up and said there was a hold up but the order was sent to their shipping center today and is in process to go out today or tomorrow.

    Sooooo...

    These things just came up for order yesterday and probably, looking at the time of the first post in this thread, it's only been a little over 24 hours since they came in stock. In that time, many orders (including mine) are already in 'partially shipped' status. Hell, that's faster processing than my last order through HTS; when I got Nemesis Prime/Skywarp last week, my order was in "not shipped" status for a couple of days before it switched to 'partially shipped'...and then it went out the day after that. And I honestly don't expect an order to be processed fully and shipped in less than 24 hours; in my experience, no online retailer is that fast, even Amazon when I actually pay for shipping. In short, I think it's way too early for the panic to start.
