    GS will definitely not honor that price and you will get cancelled. I’d secure my PO somewhere else. IT is most definitely a price mistake.

    Hell, they’re lucky to be in business. I don’t give them past 2021.

    Yeah, really hoping Gamestop doesn't cancel all of our orders with this great discount. I can't believe they said it'll be here between this coming Friday and next Monday... on what planet?

    So much of big business' websites is automated. Its clearly just a default message based on some incorrectly entered parameters.

    I ordered it from Gamestop, because why not? Maybe they'll honor it.

    The fact that they've misspelled his name (Thundercraker) is a bit disconcerting, though . . .

    Thanks a lot for the GameStop info and trick. I just placed an order using PayPal. Hope they will honor the discount ...

    Last year I had an order for a $5 Power Rangers Goldar that went to backorder and then one day mysteriously disappeared from my Orders page without ever actually being cancelled with zero response from customer service about it. So they may not cancel these orders, but that doesn't mean that they will actually fulfill them either. (Hell, the way it's been going for them, there might not even be a Gamestop by time Thundercracker releases).

    That so? Good for those who ordered. But as some of our other buddies posted, it be better that they back up their orders. GS is in a very precarious financial straits especially under C19.

    Holy sh$t it worked via PayPal. Came to $194.19. This and DX9 Gabriel are two fantastic prices I've found because of these forums.

    Been considering collecting this version of the seekers, but these recent pics of TC are making me lean on the not side, the mold is just too soft looking imo, that and the head size makes it look like a guy cosplaying. Maybe go for it if they go on sale.

    I’m sure lots of people have already thought of this; but taking screenshots of your order will make it harder for GameStop to not honor the price just in case this is a mistake. It can’t hurt at the very least.

    Sorry to be a downer, but unless an intern wrote their ToS they have something in there about typographical errors, which the listing includes. Even if they didn't, a mistake isn't subject to false and deceptive advertising laws. Gamestop routinely makes mistakes like these and you can google plenty of examples of people sharing and then mourning the loss of deals that they found. Anyone that truly wants a copy would be well advised to secure a PO through a reputable retailer. ToyDojo has been the cheapest I've been able to find from a Stateside retailer thus far, and Showz the cheapest internationally. There's 0 chance these get honored though, and a screen shot only proves they made an error, which they aren't obligated to honor.

    A screenshot may not be enough to push the issue, but GS order and PayPal confirmations might be.

    I ordered 2 from GS last night. Why not? That heavily discounted price is unbeatable by any store, anywhere. I have order number and PayPal confirmations from the transaction sitting in my inbox.

    And, I haven’t cancelled my ToyDojo order. Yet.

    There’s only upside to it. Worst case scenario is GS cancels everyone’s orders due to a mistake, doesn’t honor the confirmations sent, and I still have my ToyDojo order ready to go. Best case scenario is I save $130 off two Thundercrackers, pay nothing for shipping, and can just cancel the Toy Dojo one.

    Ah ok. I wish I could do this. When you pay with PayPal it charges you right away. At least some of us can hopefully still get this price. Who knows with GS lol

    Would PayPal make them honor the price? I’ve only dealt with them if I got something wrong or jacked over by a seller
