    Yeah, I got the same email. Bummer. The delay on Thundercracker and Rescue Ratchet is annoying, too, as I still have yet to see either of those in a store (I can't believe that folks on this board were finding them MONTHS ago).

    At this point, I plan to pick them up at retail if I ever see them, in case this pre-order gets cancelled in full..... though it is anyone's guess whether I'll find them in a store before the scheduled December delivery.

    I'm still hoping that there will be a massive re-stocking as the holidays approach.

    I first saw them a week and ahalf ago. At Wal-Mart. But that said Wal-Mart seems to be the only store here getting Voyagers beyond the first two waves. :confused:

    How odd and ironic. I bought both my T'cracker and Rescue Ratchet at Target last month. I've been to two other WMTs and another Target recently that still have them sitting on the shelf.

    Thundrcracker was found yesterday 10/08/07 but still no sign of Rescue Rachet. Target will eventually get Nightwatch Prime? Cool!

    This is why I NEVER preorder something unless the site says they're getting in 1 week or less.

    If anybody needs Nightwatch Prime, I can pick some up in the UK and send them over.
    You will get stuck by the strong pound however and the crazy high prices. Oh and maybe the constant royal mail strikes over here as well :(

    The problem, in my eyes at least, is that they could've at least given you an option of whether or not you wanted to cancel the order. Some people might not have had a problem waiting till Target.com got them in. But since their orders were canceled outright, without any warning, they don't get that choice.

    Btw, I received the same email from them. I was a little miffed by that.
