    I'm not sure if this is news or not, but I just got a shipping notice from HTS that my order has shipped, and the only items on my order were Classics Bumblebee and Grimlock.

    Further in the e-mail, it said that neither item was shipped, so it's hard to be sure.

    HTS seems to have been smoking crack lately. I wouldn't believe anything until the box shows up and you verify the contents. I ordered the new 3" titaniums from then and "whoops! they're sold out!" but they weren't when I ordered them. Bastards.

    I got the same e-mail and had just got off the phone with them, Grimlock and Mirage are the only two items that are expected to ship on 11/15, the rest (Rodimus, Starscream, and Bumblebee) are sent out

    I just got the Alt Mirage I ordered about 8 days ago from them, but the classics seem to be on hold...

    I got an email saying Titanium Thundercracker and Jetfire and Classics Bumblebee, Rodimus, Grimlock, and Mirage had shipped, but then my account status summary on their site says "partially shipped" and then inside the account status detail it says none of them had shipped. So I have no idea. I'm assuming everything except Mirage and Grimlock shipped since that makes the most sense, but I probably won't know for another few days until the box arrives and I open it.

    HasbroToyShop has the most ridiculous and confusing order system I've ever dealt with, and I've bought things direct from Japanese stores before that didn't have English translations in their order system. That's pretty embarassing. Hasbro needs to clean this crap up.

    I know it's probably not possible, but it would be really sweet to get Grimlock already!

    After the Nemesis Prime screwjob you'd think they'd have their stuff together. My Titaniums were supposed to ship on the 4th, they didn't. I e-mailed and they said they were supposed to ship on the 10th, they didn't. If I call I doubt I'll get any constructive answer... Thing is I know someone else called and tried to cancel but was told he couldn't because the order was too far along in the process, so now I get the impression that all this BS about "on route to fulfillment centers" and promised shipping dates that dont come true is just to stall you until it's too late to get your money back... With how bad things are run on that shop it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    I'm guessing you'll see wave 1 classics and Ti's in the shipped packages, i'm sure the Wave 2 ones won't be in until November....

    I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing problems. So far, I have received Alt. Mirage, but Tit. Thundercracker, Jetfire, and Optimus have yet to come (even when Hasbrotoyshop's order status says shipped "10/4/06."

    I'll wait a few more days, but if they don't come...I'm gonna give customer service an unpleasant call.

    Ordered Classics Hot Rod, Tit Jetfire, and Tit 'Cracker on 9/27. Website said Hot Rod would ship 11/15 and Jetfire and Cracker would ship 10/4 (still said that yesterday). Got an email today that said my order had shipped, but listed all three items on the order as "items not yet shipped". Kind of a pointless email. Went to website and still says that none of the items have shipped (Hot Rod expected to ship 11/15 and Tits expected to ship on 10/4). What...the...Fuck, HTS?

    Got another e-mail from HTS, this time the e-mail correctly stated that Classic Deluxe Starscream, Bumble Bee, Rodimus has been shipped, and Grimlock are expected on 11/15. I guess I'll confirm it in 7-10 days

    I got an email with the title "Your order has shipped", but when I read the email it said "Item(s) NOT shipped" and then had my entire order listed underneath. I had Classics Bumblebee, HotRod, Mirage, Grimlock, Tit Thundercracker, and Jetfire ordered. So who knows what they are sending me.

    Hah! Funny, same thing happened to me.... Astrotrain and Starscream have apparently shipped, even though they weren't scheduled to for another month. But the 6-in. Titaniums haven't shipped yet, even though they were supposed to ship a week ago. Loopy!

    Ah well... I suppose they'll all get here eventually.

    I got the same email about my order - I'm expecting to receive a box with a hand-written IOU.

    I got the Classics! USPS was extra early this morning, I gotta tell ya, I can get spoiled by HTS if they keep this up, I got Rodimus, BB, and SS just as I ordered with Grimlock coming at a later date. $24.35 for 3 figures, I can dig it :D

    I called yesterday and posted in the Toyark here.http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=112368&page=5

    To summarize my post, Hasbro is having computer problems that seem to be holding up shipments. The 3" Titaniums I ordered should be there but for some reason has yet to ship. The more important figures (Bumblebee, Rodimus, Astrotrain, and Starscream) have shipped.


    Glad to hear you got them. I'm hoping that my four arrive Monday.
