    Well I get mine tommorow and well it will be coming USPS as someone got theirs as well. UPS is not delivering mine so I guess I will be getting mine in the morning from the USPS mail lady that is mean and doesnt like to knock to let me know I have a package.

    That has got to be one of the worst things I've ever seen in the shipping disaster department. Holy fuck. They better rectify that for you.

    isn't it illegal for whom ever is handling the shipping to tamper, such as opening, the package? this is very strange and i am very sorry.

    Wow... that sucks. But I wonder why they bothered with the cardboard unless they were trying to add weight. And why bother with that? Not like it was going back to a TRU or anything.

    Hmm... interesting situation. Contact TRU.com and give them the story. If there are more on the way, perhaps you can work something out. Just don't post the results here.

    Last thing we need are dishonest types trying to scam TRU out of an extra Acid Storm.

    Don't worry I'm trying to keep my "cool" and after 3 years of ordering MP from TRU I'm definitely looking towards buying Takara MP right now.

    I got my SW today after ordering one from the second batch that went up on the 18th. Mine was packaged great and doesn't have any issues. Overall I think he is really awesome and I am pretty happy with my purchase. I am glad I waited and didn't get the Takara version. It would have just been too costly that way. Especially with the extra tapes costing $30 a piece. That is just way too much for them.

    One question. How and where do I attach the grey binocular looking thing? I can't find a place and the instructions are no help.

    Damn dude that sucks.

    Now was it TRU, UPS od Post Office, just make sure you take pics and document it all.

    That's a new one, already have a friend with a mangled Acid Storm, let him post the pics if he does. Its double crappy since I was going to pick it up off of him after the fact. Came in busted up.

    Luckily I did get my Soundwave in, both ends of shipping box beat in 1 inch or so. There were bubbles in mine, only ended up with some corner damage that was pretty light all things considered.

    I can't really imagine either UPS or the post office going to that much trouble to stuff the box with cardboard. For that matter, I can't imagine, UPS or the USPS blindly digging into a box not knowing in advance that a highly sought after collectible will be inside.

    Yea. Didn't hear anything about the shape of the shipping box. Sounds more like an inside job

    Collectors worst nightmare. It was a guy in the TRU packing warehouse in OHIO. I bet money.

    I'd raise a stick dood. A big shitty stink.
