    ok so My Ultra Magnus that I bought form target.com with free shipping was supposed to ship today.
    I just got a notice my order needed my attention. I thought maybe my card got denied or something. hell I wish.
    Here is the new dates for my Ultra Magnus

    Items Ordered Approved
    Transformers Animated Leader Class - Ultra Magnus
    Updated Shipping Estimate: September 26, 2008
    Updated Delivery Estimate: September 29, 2008
    Your approval required by: September 14, 2008

    I swear there is not online store that doesnt overprice things that has a good preorder system. Ok I'm done bitching, also I guess we can give up hope of seeing them on target shelves soon

    Well, BBTS only just got them, so it makes sense a larger outfit like Target might be taking a bit longer to distribute them.

    Don't give up hope! He might arrive in store sooner than they are saying there.

    *sighs* I'm not saying that people should overpay, nor am I saying that there's anything wrong with saving money, but seriously....is all of this shitty trouble worth the wait, when a viable preorder just passed by?

    I can understand trying to save money here and there, but is an extra $10-15.00 for something you want, that much of a dealbreaker?

    Before anyone says it, yes, patience is a virtue, and it's the more sensible thing to do when it comes to money, but all the frustration, time, and money wasted on fruitless pursuits is just as stupid as paying $10-15 extra.

    The part that sucks about Target online is that if you do a search to see if UM is in a store near you, damn near all of them say "in stock", sadly that means they only have that size class avail. and not the actual bot.

    You cant really blame them, its not like they have super powers and are able to zap them to you... Althought the late shipping date is a little extreme, maybe theyre just behind a little.

    There wasn't really any trouble at all I thought it was a good deal last month and had nothing to loose be reserving one with target. I usually have no problem finding this stuff at retail. I was just hoping to get it early. The last couple of times Target.com has put stuff up early it worked quite well (evolution of BB and deep space starscream). I just posted it here cuz everybody in my house was asleep and I had no one to vent right after it happened.
    However in retrospect it was a bad idea for them to put a set shipping date if the product was not set to come in. If you look at there listing for the Univierse ultras it says like "arriving in 2-6 weeks" while ultra magnus said "ships Aug 14. Hence my anticipation and frustration but its not like I'm dwelling on it

    I too hate Target.com.

    Back in April I got some Target gift cards for my birthday. I got some Animaniacs DVDs, another DVD and ordered The Flash dvd series. I selected Ship all at once. Well the ship The Animaniacs DVD, the other movie i ordered (think it was the 1980 comedy Student Bodies). But the send them at the same time, but in different boxes! So twice the shipping. The site said Flash was "in Stock". Yet it kept pushing it back, and pushing it back, and pushing it back. I finally canceled it and used the $$ to buy another Animaniacs DVD or something. I waited for about a month or two on it! Target sucks ass..
