    I know right? I ordered $200 worth of stuff from them a year ago. And now they have this promotion? To hell with them. I'm just going to order from other retailers cuz they never have any promotional giveaways or sales AFTER I've already bought stuff from them. Oh wait...to hell with them all! :rolleyes2

    I know...I just bought a 12 pack of beer at the market last week and this week they went on sale for $9.99! Eff that market, I am never going back for groceries again. =( On top of that, I bought a Jumbo Jack combo at Jack in the Box last week and this week they started giving two free tacos with every combo. Eff Jack in the Box too, I am never going there again...EVER!

    For everyone who just ordered $200 - $500 worth of stuff recently before the promotion, have you tried contacting RobotKingdom?

    They are good people and they might send you the Microns anyways since you've dropped that much money with them.

    I'm not saying people from six months or so ago should start writing, but if you just ordered stuff within a week or a month, it can't hurt to email them and see what they say. If you're dropping that kind of cash with them, you're probably a valued customer to them and they'll do what they can for you.

    The worst they can say is no after all, but it can't hurt to try.

    Personally, I know where I'm ordering the last three Hercules bots I need as soon as RK gets them in-stock :D

    And.... bought. XD

    I'll be ordering the first 4 of the TFC Hercules bots from RK since I picked up the last two released on BBTS during their recent 3P clearance sale. Along with some Dr. Wu stuff, the TFC Hercules gun/arms/face add-on, and a few other odds and ends. Should come out to a little over $600 too. This Arms Micron promotion was just the clincher for me to drop the cash on RK since I've been mulling it over in my mind for the past few weeks or so. Glad I waited until now to put my order in otherwise I would have been kicking myself for missing out on these minicons!

    Just thinking about the amount of UK customs tax on $600 of RK items makes me shudder - you guys in the US are super lucky!

    F**k you HM Revenue & Customs...

    Damn, I just bought the Leader Class Optimus Jetfire DOTM 2 pack for $199 last month I would have padded the order to get one of the microns. Beware though, I don't know what's happened with Robotkingdom but the box I got from them was crushed and so was my two pack box, luckily the toys were ok!

    Is it a fact that this is how RK operates when it comes to these types of promotions? I mean, their preordering system requires you to pay up front (via PayPal) so I'm already forking over $600+ up front (unlike BBTS PoL system where you only pay when the items you preordered come into stock). Shouldn't I theoretically be guaranteed to get the microns then (stock supplies willing)?

    Also, I suppose all of these microns combined would form a Shadow Star Saber? XD

    Blame your USPS carrier then, not RK. They can't control what happens to the box after it leaves their hands.

    I just got an order from RK last week or so and the box was in perfect shape and there was a ton of packaging around the figure.

    Fantastic promotion. No need to track down these Microns. I placed all my pre-orders right through to July to qualify.

    Maketoys Green Giant is on the site. That really helps go a long way to making it to the cut-off.

    but i'm sure if you go to BBTS and compare your shopping cart with them, you'll still come out on top.
