    Welp, I thought I was going to get breacher off of toywiz, but they just called me to say that it wwas out of stock TWO DAYS AFTER they said it was in stock, and I had bought one.

    Then, kmart calls and says that my order for tomahawk, hailstorm, and terradive were all out of stock after the site was saying they were :( 

    I shoulda known that kmart was unreliable after the HA mudflap failure!
    ugh!! people are stupid :( 
    /rant

    at least I have a MP grimmy to melt my sorrows with a T-rex sized hug!

    In all fairness, very few good things have been said about both of those online stores. So you kind of walked into it yourself.

    They're all mass-release toys anyway that will be out in the next month or so. Patience and good, old-fashioned hunting never hurt anyone.

    We really need a sticky warning about K-Mart.com

    I get sick of seeing people blindly order from K-Mart.

    rule number one, NEVER ORDER OFF TOYWIZ, they are the king of scalping

    rule number two, never trust kmart.com for anything

    sorry about your bad luck, but now you know, and knowing is half the battle

    No we don't. Anyone who doesn't do any amount of research before handing off their credit card number is completely deserving of what they get.

    People do it all the time on eBay. I've seen so many KOs go for crazy prices. Some people need to have things spelled out for them.

    EDIT: For example, I had a guy asking if my WST Megatron was complete. I mentioned in the description that he was complete (plus the picture shows his scope plus the instructions). The guy apparently thought that WST Megatron came with his silencer and stock. No research there.

    Aww, poor guy, got snookered by two of the worst online retailers for TFs. Well At least you have MP Grimlock to rub in our faces! Well I guess my TFC Punch/Counterpunch will have to make me feel better on Thursday, or I could just toy with my Takara MP Grimlock. Decsions. Oh wait, I feel better already! LOL Sarcasm....I smell a, "I just want to brag about having Grimlock" a little here.

    That sucks man.

    I never order from online stores. I order only from ebay sellers, and pay with paypal. At least the feedback lets you know if these guys might rip you off or not.

    Sorry dude but I have to disagree with you. Don't be so harsh. I think warning people isn't such a bad thing.

    Oh come on. That's unnecessarily harsh. It's not unreasonable for the uninitiated to expect to be able to order something from Kmart. They've got name recognition, and people probably don't expect any trouble from their website. Not everybody spends hours a day on Internet sites to know this sort of stuff.

    If a member joined in July, and he's already sick of threads like these, then it's time to stop bitching about your orders and stock.
