    Well I ordered Voyager Battle Blades Optimus Prime and Powercore Combiner Mudslinger. I then get an e-mail from Kmart stating that they are sorry but these items are not in stock. Was I upset? Yes a little bit. They had already taken the money out of my PayPal account and I have yet to see it back so I may be calling them about that. Anyways the thing is I went on there again and they had all these new Transformers toys listed like WFC Megatron, Soundwave, Turner Skids... etc which I'm sure if you tried ordering them they would just send you an e-mail saying that they are sorry but the items are not in stock. I know that people had trouble with them on ordering HA Mudflap by them sending them the wrong item instead of the actual HA Mudflap. I'm almost wonder why Kmart allows this kind of stuff to happen. Anyways just my little rant about them. Does anyone else have a Kmart story to share?

    When I lived in LA, I used to go to the kmart near the grove. The place was a dump, and the transformers were 20% more than those at the nearby target. What transformers there were were all in beaten up packages. I did pick up an easter basket on clearance with a knockoff superion in it though for like $3.

    Yeah, don't order from Kmart. It's not worth the chance and aggravation. Spend a few extra bucks and get it from BBTS or TFSource. They won't send you running in circles.

    As for me. I have bought TF's and GI Joes from Kmart. So far I have gotten everything that I ordered. But there are stories of people getting the wrong items that they ordered. This is mainly for orders that involves Human Alliance figures.

    I was one of the Mudflap victims heres a copy of an old post:

    Do not order from KMART.com
    K-mart.com is not an actual webstore. The way it works is that your order goes to a company called Mygopher or something. The idiots from there take your order to their local came Kmart (in this case my order went to Arizona) and check the shelves for what you order. If the store doesn't have what you want they grab you something equivalent and charge your card. There is no actual inventory tracking of what is on the site in anyway that I can see. IF you order Mudflap all your gonna get is a chore for returning it and your probably have to throw a fit to get your shipping money back like I did.

    If I had room in my signature I'd put in big bold letters "NEVER ORDER FROM KMART.COM OR TARGET.COM IF IT'S NOT AN EXCLUSIVE", because I say it over and over and people still fall for them over and over again.

    About six months ago I've ordered Nebular Starscream and Mindwipe from Kmart.

    They sent me the Nebular SS, but not Mindwipe. Instead they sent Recon Ironhide. They refunded my money for not getting Mindwipe, but they never refund me the shipping cost.

    I filled out their survey and gave it a bad rating. They said I will get a phone call from them. They never called.

    ROTF Mindwipe.

    Good God... First they send me Ironhide. Then they send me Ratchet. Finally they send me Animated Prime vs Megatron 2-pack. The worst part is fighting to get your shipping money back...

    Those retail web sites aren't very good about keeping their sites up to date.

    Most KMart stores around here aren't that nice either, kinda cheap editions of Walmarts gone wrong.

    Yeah, they'll credit your account. The problem comes in when you get the wrong thing, go to return it, and they won't give your shipping money back EVEN THOUGH they sent the wrong thing. I had to jump through hoops.

    The easiest way to avoid the shipping problem is to go a SEARS STORE and do a "Store to Home" and if you do it at their KIOSK, the shipping will be waived. You still end up with the same problem of not getting the right figure, though.
