    Whenever that happens immediately call Amazon & bitch & moan about it. They'll give you a partial refund. You basically get the set for half price. And if enough people would do this, maybe they'll stop shipping things like that. If everybody would call & complain you might be helping out the rest of us that do care about the box. Why should the F'ing ebay scalpers get the nice mint boxes while *REAL* collectors that actually care have to settle for ruined packaging?

    They shipped mine the same way. I called & got a partial refund. I was able to remove all the shipping stickers with a hair dryer & Goo-Gone but you can still see the outline slightly. It pisses me off because it shouldn't have happened at all.

    Then I get a bunch of orders for household items, art supplies & cat bowls that get shipped with care in an actual shipping box. The only shipping they mess up are the high value collectible toys that I want to be in a mint box.

    Sometimes I think they're doing it on purpose just to fuck with me. And I told them that the last time I called them.:mad:  (They're probably not but I told them anyway. Why not?)

    Mine arrived with a sticker on the box. I didn't call Amazon. I don't feel entitled to a refund of any kind as the box was getting tossed either way. My figures are great, I'm happy with them and honestly after reading through the thread I'm happy to have received the pair at all. I understand the gripe boxed collectors would have and it's warranted, I'm just laying down my experience with the set.

    An amount matching the price of the Ironhide/Prowl set has been taken from my card. The delivery charge wasn’t taken though, so would that be taken separately? (I’m not eligible for free delivery this is as I live in England.)

    The status of the order itself hasn’t changed yet, but hoping his means it’s about to ship.

    I read in some posts that their orders disappeared. Did you guys tick the date when the orders where entered? Try clicking 2020 and not the last 3 months. It will reappear.

    I mean I get people are mad but some people just don't really care enough. I certainly don't. I chucked the box in the recycling bin the moment I had everything out. I have no space in my house for boxes that aren't purposefully made to be reused, like the Selects boxes. As far as I'm concerned these Amazon exclusive boxes are just one more step to get into the juicy meat inside.

    Unlikely. It seems only Hasbro Pulse does more runs.

    My Autobot Alliance set finally shipped! I ordered these day one using the wishlist method but then cancelled and reordered on september 29th to switch to Prime shipping. I did the same with the Medics who were cancelled long ago. Glad I got one of the two sets at least! I do think we will get restocks next year.

    Ironhide and Prowl finally showed up today. Thank God that shit’s over with... They arrived in their brown SIOC box inside of an Amazon box with padding, so, no damage to the product packaging. I pulled them out and fiddled with them a bit and all seems fine. I’m going to weaponize the dogshit out of Ironhide’s “sled”. FWIW, I’m a Prime member and I ordered on 8/18. My order was delayed twice (delayed once to 12/4 and then to “wait and see”).

    Hoping I'm not too far behind, I ordered 1 week after you :) 

    All of these October orders being fulfilled got me nervous...

    Same here... I originally ordered in July right when it went live...then cancelled and reordered in August with the “gift packaging” option selected to make sure they didn’t send me the actual toy packaging with the shipping label stuck to it. There really isn’t any reason anyone should recieve theirs naked like that since, I assume, every copy comes with its own outer brown SIOC box. I hope yours shows up soon!

    If you're referring to my recent order/case:

    I saw these listed as "available" so I went ahead to placed orders for them only to have the Amazon team wrote back to me, "explaining" that these shouldn't be available in the first place as they were certain that there's a glitch in the system since they could "see from their end that the status is No Longer Available".

    I then flashed them a screenshot of my order so that they couldn't argue further. CSO then told me that they would try their best to fulfil my orders & yes, they finally sent me mine after almost 2 months of waiting.

    Again, do note that neither Amazon team nor myself are from the US so we're talking about orders & Amazon team that's from another region.
