    I just got charged this morning for AU Prime on my non-Prime member pre-order placed on June 11!

    He should be on his way I guess! :)

    There was an article about an Amazon delivery driver who just up and quit in the middle of his shift, stuff in the back, keys in the ignition, and tweeted it. He said they were working him to death, thirteen hours a shift, usually.

    People in the comments confirmed. If you're willing to work it, they're willing to pay it, $25.00 per hour. Insane money, insane hours, it'll kill ya.

    Ordered mine June 26 without Amazon Prime and it shows an estimated delivery date of July 24-29. I haven't gotten a delay yet so here's hoping it stays that way.

    Right but mine is being delivered by Amazon, not by a third party. The status updated to "Out for delivery" at 1:31.PM and he should be here by 8:30!

    If it were coming through UPS or USPS, I totally get what you're saying and yeah, if it isn't trucked that morning it's not showing up.

    Amazon does one to three rounds of delivery depending on the market and the commercial season. Most of my deliveries happen between 11am and 2pm for the first round. Sometimes I get an out for delivery message between 1pm and 3pm for the second round that arrives between 4pm and 6pm. During high points I can get an out for delivery message from 4pm to 6pm and receive it between 7pm and 9pm. Sometimes I get an out for delivery message for rounds 2 or 3 but it gets delayed until the next day. Those pop up super early in the morning. It helps I'm near multiple distribution centers.

    The neighborhood one lives in makes a huge difference in how early you get in the line to receive product. It all comes down to Amazon's efficiency algorithms. Not order of purchase. If product only hits the west coast centers for initial distribution within Amazon, I probably wait a week. If it hits Gulf Coast for initial distribution (either first or simultaneously) I am usually day 1 to 3. There appears to be some initial distribution in New England, but I haven't really watched those patterns much. It is hard to predict, but my household orders enough from Amazon that distinct patterns can be recognized after delivery when comparing to others' deliveries.

    ETA: Just after posting this I just received a second round delivery notice for something non-tf.

    I got mine today, and I really like this mold and the way they engineered the vehicle parts folding into the torso (I don't own the ER version yet), but I have a few issues with tabs not being tight enough in the trailer and his left wheel well doesn't peg into his hip. The torso is also slightly loose. Did I just get a slightly bad copy, or are these normal ER Prime issues (like the floppy joints in Siege Megatron)?

    Got in my Sleep mode Optimus Prime today! First thing I had to do was recreate this iconic moment from the movie, no Daniel because I only have an exosuit version of him which he wasn't wearing in this scene. Kudos to Hasbro and Takara for making these cool toys that allow us to re-enact this scarring childhood moment (oops should have taken the matrix out to be totally accurate :) )

    Comparison with a KO black Classics Optimus Prime which was my previous version of him:

    These next couple of shots show him with the Nonnef trailer upgrade kit in black and grey color:

    Amazon doesn't always deliver through Amazon. It just depends. Like, at UPS we handle a lot of Amazon that's shipped through UPS Ground, and we deliver it also. I generally assume it's gonna be UPS ground based on my experiences with Amazon, haha. Yeah, sometimes I get an Amazon driver, sometimes I get a UPS driver. A luck of the draw around here.

    Got my dead Prime today. Has the left side of the upper chest not pegging in issue and they tightened the screws so tight on the left upper leg that it warped the plastic so bad he looks like he has two additional effect posts.

    Mine also has the problem with the his left chest not staying pegged down in robot mode. If anyone has an idea for a fix I'd appreciate it. Although, he is currently posed as a corpse lying down, so it fits with the damaged body. Didn't notice an issue with his leg screw.

    Mine also has an issue with the chest, one side doesn't peg in. It also affects the truck cab mode.
    My brother got one that was missing one of the thigh screws.
