    "In stock" is meaningless at Hasbro Toy Shop. Those of us who had preorders in for it way back in September just got an email two days ago saying that they were canceling Grimlock orders because they didn't know when they'd have stock available.

    My Grimlock order didn't get get cancelled....

    Anyway, HTS sucks.


    Just called HTS.

    My Mirage is on the way...my Grimlock was canelled, despite my never recieving that email and my order status listing him as back ordered. SHITTIEST service imaginable.

    I did order him again though, but I missed out on my free shipping. Sucks to have a preorder for 3 months with free shipping just to have to order him again.

    Yeah, I kinda gave up on my order ever working out as well. Can't win them all, I guess, and I'd rather take a chance at finding one at retail, than try to save a few bucks by waiting an eternity for the HTS system to not suck.

    In fact, I bet the Grimlock listing becoming "in stock" was automated based on the date the figures were supposed to come in, and those who try getting one now will end up screwed later. Time will tell!

    Just called HTS, even though my order page still says "backordered" they said it's sent to the warehouse, and should be out the doors in 24 hours, FINALLY.

    Checked here and Mirage is in the warehouse, they canceled my Grimlock order though. The lady I spoke to was nice enough to place the order for me again, and apply the same discount. Hopefully he'll show up sooner or later since I haven't had any luck tracking him or Mirage in the stores yet.

    Why bother ordering from Hasbro anyway? Isn't it easier to get them locally?

    Not really. I've scoured many a toy store and have yet to see a Grimlock or Jetfire. I found a grand total of 1 Mirage (which I bought).

    Maybe Grimlock will be commonplace in a few weeks. But right now he's nowhere to be found.

    Most of us ordered them when they had a coupon code for 25% off and free shipping, making them more than $3 off retail price if you take sales tax into account (to say nothing of the cost of gas for driving around looking for them locally). We also knew that Grimlock was going to be shortpacked in the case and harder to find.

    At the time it seemed a good idea. Now that I've seen their level of service, not so much.

    It is for me, but only because I don't have a credit card...

    However, I have yet to spot Grimlock, Mirage or Jetfire anywhere. Luckily, Jetfire's been seen in NYC, where a buddy of mine works... and he's a comic collector, so he understands the need... but not a TF collector, so if there's only one there, it'll be mine. ;)  That is, of course, if there's any left by the time my buddy gets there...

    With my luck, I'd order Grimlock and then find him locally the next day.
