    I think you were either directly in front of me or behind me this morning, so it should be coming very very soon

    I also called TRU and had them combine my 2 packages into one, so we'll see how that works

    Hey, as long as Soundwave and his minions are fine, I'll take a slightly damaged box. Slightly. lol I don't want it delivered by Ace Ventura. Hell, I don't want him packing it, for that matter.

    Go look at some old threads with exclusives like this.

    Every year for NYCC or SDCC or whatever convention, people who ordered the first run report getting crushed merchandise as a result of TRU or HTS or Amazon or whomever rushing orders out. That actually wasn't a dig, but truth based on the experiences of members in the past.

    Sliver of hope for those still looking...

    There is still Toys R Us ebay, which may have still have their stock because they are a separate entity from Toys R Us. I was told by one of their employees that they would be up on their site on the 18th after my order was cancelled. I know these people haven't been very trustworthy, but at least it's a shot.

    Last time, they listed their big debacle after 10:00 p.m. eastern, so they could be listing around the same time again today. This is a LONG SHOT, but so was me staying up until 5 in the morning today and getting one. Someone may want to call the ebay store and see if they have any (Hasbro may have taken their stock away after the fiasco, who knows). We know they did indeed have them at some point as another board member got an Acid Storm by mistake.

    I feel terrible for all who didn't get one, hopefully Toys R Us ebay can try to make amends for their previous error.

    Who gives a damn about a crushed box as long as the toy inside is ok? People just jelly so they wanna throw salt on everyone else's happiness.

    Wait, so they're telling us more will be coming in August, and then putting "sold out" up on their website?

    I got my order in, but that's BS for people that are still looking. Were the words "Out of stock / More coming" or "Sold out / New stock arriving soon" lost on them?

    Just the initial release stock is sold out. Normal retail stock will appear in August. Very Screwed up- keeps getting better as the day gets longer. Still want to know if these figures will have the SDCC logo boxes as opposed to August release

    This is just from the "R" Us exclusive SDCC stuff in the link. If you search for Masterpiece Soundwave you get the normal screen with no order button.
