    For those who have ordered a TF through Walgreens online site before today, how many times did you get the correct figure?

    I was literally just reading through the thread and had this exact same thought! What if Walgreens is just shipping out whatever Earthrise Deluxes they happen to of had on hand at the time. Than Walgreens finally figured out what was happening, due to the influx of orders, and put a stop to it! Hmmmmm! :peoples:  Now I'm very interested to know what people get in the mail come this weekend! Hoping for the best, but we will see. Good luck to all that managed to get an order in! :thumb

    I’m feeling pretty fortunate.
    I was able to order one.
    And then there’s Prowl that comes with Ironhide that I have in order. So it now comes down to Smokescreen.

    Then I’m 3 closer to done.

    I also have Ratchet on order. So done and done there.

    Got Sideswipe, Red Alert, and Hoist. Once I find Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker than I’m that much more done.

    Is that Siege/Earthrise line completion you are going for, or updates to your G1 Seasons 1&2 collection completion?

    Completion of my G1 seasons 1, 2, and maybe even 3 collection.

    *edit*

    F-it. Just ordered Smokescreen from Amazon.

    Dang, I have a lot on pre-order. Now of Amazon can keep Dirge and Ramjet in stock...

    I don\'t want to rub anyone the wrong way but did it ever happen to you that you do your best to preorder some figure as fast as possible and then keep checking to see if it\'s out of stock later? I know it might sound weird but it kind of gives me a bit of satisfaction ie. \"Yes, I\'m not crazy for being neurotic about refreshing the website every hour. See, it\'s sold out! I was right, I tell you!\"

    Wow mine already shipped to store via Fedex. Supposed to arrive Friday. I'll believe it when I see it though.

    I can tell you that i have most assuredly done the same thing after buying any exclusive, especially from Target, Walmart, and Pulse. Mainly the curiosity of just how long it lasted, and to see if people are gonna scream about how fast it sold out if, in actuality, an item was up a long time. Plus I keep checking to let board members and friends know if something is actually still there in case they were tied up and need to hurry to grab something. :)

    I'm hoping that since the listing specifically lists (listed) Bluestreak that he'll actually be what arrives, unlike with how Best Buy lists the price point with a random pic. But time will tell. If it's the wrong figure, I'll either return it or add it to the custom fodder pile.

    I'm not so sure. I don't remember, did Ratchet sell out from the site within hours of being put up?

    Ok cool! Yeah definitely doing the same thing! It's been really nice knocking a lot of updates off of my list. ER Deluxe Wave 3 is going to be a really big one for the Season 1 shelf, I'm definitely excited for that! Amazon came through for me with Smokescreen, so I'm done for now with season 2 Autobot updates until KD Warpath drops. Got Bluestreak coming in this week, so next is definitely ER Prowl & Ironhide 2 pack!
    Holy Hell! The next to months are going to be crazy for season 1 Autobot updates!

    Ratchet must not have (or it did and came in stock again)...I got Ratchet last year online on Black Friday (maybe it was actually Thanksgiving day).

    I’m waiting to see if we’ll get Earth mode versions of Hound, Sideswipe, Mirage, and Red Alert before I buy their Siege versions. Well I caved and got Mirage, but I’ll leave him in his box for now since he’s got that brittle plastic problem and all.

    I’m trying to save money so I don’t want to buy them only for new Earth mode versions to come out a few months later as Amazon exclusives or generation selects.

    Smart! You know they're coming, it's just a matter of time. I wish I would have waited.

    Walgreens typically delivers the correct figure - I've never heard anyone report ordering a Walgreens exclusive from the website and receiving a different figure.

    It's only in-store that the system considers them all the same.
