    ...entertainment earth charged exuberant shipping costs for my mixed-figure order, shipped a titan master early with the full-order shipping costs, and then cancelled the remainder of my order due apparently not receiving the larger figures for which they'd solicited my preorder...

    ...i don't hold their operation in high esteem...

    Please let me know what happens, as I'll likely be in the same boat whenever they ship my preordered case of the Botbot 8-packs. Yeah, it looks like they charged you shipping despite already saying the shipping was free.

    Ah, but there's the fine print... it's ONLY free if you order eighty bucks of IN STOCK product, and ONLY if you use no other coupon codes. Seems kinda crooked to me to not expend it to preorders above that threshold since they get your money WAY before you get your goodies, but...

    That hasn't been the case in the past. I've pre-ordered things multiple times that hit that $79.99 threshold just barely and when it came in stock, they shipped with free shipping.

    Just looking at the second pic, it looks like they deducted the cost of your shipping from the total before evaluating it against their free shipping cutoff.

    $79.99 for the case.
    - 12.95 for free shipping.
    = 67.04 as your "total."

    Then they charged you for shipping because your order total was now under the shipping limit.

    So yeah, they absolutely goofed. They needed to charge you for shipping before applying the deduction. Or they needed to simply *waive* shipping because your order total exceeded the required amount.

    As a software developer, I'm offended. That algorithm should never have gotten past QC.

    I got a response saying that it was indeed a change in the new year due to federal policy. That’s unconstitutional, but that’s not EE’s fault. I just wish they had communicated the change to those with open preorders and let them know that.

    Back on a more enjoyable topic, I found most of the eight-packs at Target, but the one with Duderoni had been snapped up, so that’s the last one my daughter and I need. The search continues...

    Ah, $&*#@. Well, thanks for the update. I wish there was somewhere else online that was selling the 8-packs as a case (that wasn't eBay).

    The redeco is white and torquoise. Given his alt mode, whoever owns the repaint had too many Spoiled Rottens that day. LOL

    Figured out the 1 botbots I'm missing... the green zamboni thingy.

    Anybody able to point it out on the checklist for me? (The back of every instruction sheet that comes with the figures)

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: and just like that, I answer my own question... under the escalator.

    I guess I should check off all the ones I have before hand before I ask questions, sorry folks. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, but now because of his comment I want a zamboni redeco/remold. Darnit.

    Hasbro, you son of a $#*@. I'm already giving you enough of my money!

    Now they need to make one with Hawt Diggity on it that says "I'm Your Wurst Nightmare".
