    Caveat emptor, I say.

    There is a very good chance that all this stuff will show up elsewhere on the internet stores or brick and mortar before these Deluxes ever ship from HTS.

    But if somebody doesn't mind waiting and wants to save a few bucks, I guess they're not a totally bad way to go.

    What's the old code that supposedly always works? I noticed they got Universe figs back in stock too so I wanna snatch them up asap myself.

    Edit: I just noticed everything says it won't ship for another three months...

    I think I'll be hitting the stores before I buy another pre-order from HTS

    this

    I just canceled my entire Wave 1 + BA, Ratchet & V. Prime order, which was supposed to ship on 6/23.

    I found all of them at retail before HTS was even thinking about shipping my order.

    I'm sure I'll be doing the same thing with my other order that includes Leader Megatron, Universe Sunstreaker, Prowl and Octane soon.

    So yeah.

    Sadly, I don't think I'll have that same luxury. Stores near me don't even have the premiums yet, I'm just now finding Salvage and Stealth BBs on shelves. HTS is good to get from when they're selling items they have in-hand and ready to ship, especially when you use the 10% off+Free shipping codes...but they flat out suck when it comes to pre-orders.

    Agreed.

    Apparently "expected ship dates" don't mean squat. Especially since now the dates just change as the days go on :rolleyes2

    wait, how do you cancel a preorder from HTS? I'd love to, but didn't know it was possible!

    Totally agree. I have been having some issues with them on the preorders, but for items in stock I've never encountered a problem.

    E-mail works for canceling as well. I just did that for Earth Mode Voyager Prime as I got him from Target last night.

    You got that promo code? If so I'd love to know what it is.

    They only code I currently know of is just the 10% off one and that's Pony10 iirc, but that won't give you free shipping. I just loaded up a cart full of universe/animated stuff and it came out to a pretty penny, but sadly that code barely made a dent in the total price :(

    I always go here:
    http://www.retailmenot.com/view/hasbrotoyshop.com

    HBRFF20 was the one I used to get 20% + Shipping but that is lone since dead.

    TFPEPSI worked when I Pr-eordered UM for 5$ off (opposed to 4$ off 39.99)

    PONY10 is still legit for 10%

    If you want it faster, go elsewhere. If you want it eventually, 10% will basically boil down to free shipping, and then you don't have to play the retail hunt then HTS preorders are fine.

    I wonder why people are so intolerant of 6/23 but are perfectly OK with 'july 2008' or something general. HTS is no different than any other online retailer except that TF fans are getting panties in a twist about OMFG I GOT IT AT TARGET FURST! STREET DATEZ!

    Hahaha...no thanks, Hasbro.... fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    I'm not "Pre-ordering" anything else from them, after this fiasco with the wave 1 stuff...figures I'm STILL waiting for, I might add. Every day the "shipping date" changes to the NEXT day, and they've ignored three emails so far, choosing instead to send automated replies reminding me how "Important" my message is, and how they're happy to "Reply in a timely manner." :lolol 

    I MIGHT buy them from HTS *AFTER* I see them in-stores, if I can find a coupon... you know, once that "Ships in 24 hours" message becomes truth and not bullshit. In fact, that 20% off and free shipping coupon attached to my order is the ONLY reason I'm still holding out for my HTS wave 1 order...and god help them if they somehow screw it up MORE.

    Edit: Almost as if by divine providence, the moment I entered this post, I got an email from HTS saying my order was shipped today. Whoa.

    I guess I will order from them first using the 10% code and if there's a better one comes along I'll cancel and order again. Getting it online beats driving around and wasting gas.

    Enough is enough.... Just cancelled my order. I've passed on them at the stores many times for this. Now I gotta go out and find them. Never again.
