    So I noticed something different about the listing for Rotf Megatron. It's not a preorder. If you look at Prime it specifcally says preorder on it and when you order him you cant use paypal. I just bought Megatron and it let me pay with paypal, which wont do preorders. my order status is currently "Item(s) located in stock" So the question is will it acctually ship????

    Yeah, you can cancel an order as long as you do it before it ships. So if they try and make us wait till the 30th we can just cancel it

    hm...if they do sell it online, could we bring a picture of their own website, and ask them to sell it to us in stores?

    But if you have it ordered, why won't you just wait till it ships no matter when that is. Or is it because you figure it would be cool to pay the shipping as long as you can get it before everyone else can?

    This has Classics Soundwave written all over it.

    Soundwave was damn popular and desired at the time, and it was constantly out of stock. Towards the end, it was listed as in-stock once or even twice, but those orders it accepted far exceeded the ones TRU.com could fill. People were stuck waiting for weeks in hopes that their backorder could be filled, while others promptly gave up.

    Nothing is guaranteed, even if it says Megatron is in stock, but feel free to give it a shot. Might get lucky!

    Similar situation happened to me twice with TRU.com. They eventually changed the website's listing and order status to correct the error. I'm skeptical, but more power to you if they ship early. I plan on waiting the couple extra weeks until the street date to avoid paying for shipping.

    hm called my store and i got a really friendly employee that knew his transformers. I told him that it was sold online, he even went upstairs where they hold all the stuff that can't be release yet to check. He was very awesome. Sadly, they didn't have any in stock yet, but he expects to get it soon, and hopefully word that the release date was broken spreads soon!
