    Apparently when they first got the toys in none of them were street dated in their systems which opened a small window for people to buy the toys without problems, but then I guess they then found out about the issue in their systems and sent out the street date into their computers.

    If they have the toys on the floor, they just should have let you buy it regardless of the street date. They should put the stock in the back if it isnt for sale yet...

    In my case that's what they did. They let me get my two Dinobots and then had someone go remove the others from the shelves.

    Seems odd they'd put them out where customers can find them but then not allow them to be purchased.

    It's a matter of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

    I'm surprised to see this (complaining about the street date) from someone who has taken many opportunities to be vocal about their dislike of the AOE line.

    I am glad the street date beep happened when I went to the register, probably saved me $16 on in impulse purchase. Gonna try to not pay more then $10 for each deluxe I get from this line.

    I would strongly suggest checking out all the store exclusive repacks ; that way you can avoid having to buy something twice if the item the main toy is packed with is of interest too. some times they have a different deco on them too.

    So I'd suggest looking that up before buying the default deluxes (unless you are being completist).
