    You really believe customer service agents would have access to that information?

    Amazon just pushed my delivery date back to November.

    Glad my usual online retailer had me covered, what did I learn? Stick with your regular dealer don't rely on Amazon just to save a few coins.

    Or be patient and save money. I’m sorry so many collectors think there is a time limit on when they should have toys that are brand new. Do people just lose interest if a toy/game doesn’t arrive while everyone is talking about it?

    I think the concern is more so that, if your delivery date is pushed a month later than it is for most other people and what you were originally told, then you don't want to take the risk of what is apparently a very uncertain bet.

    I'd heard plenty about delays (my Punch was delayed a good bit too), but I'd probably have cancelled and looked for another option if I was just told what I ordered was inexplicably arriving 4+ weeks later than other's.

    Wasn't the release date only about two weeks ago, the 17th?

    Roughly 3 weeks, my bad. Release day was the 15th, 17 days total, mid way exactly between 2-3 weeks

    When Punch was released, Amazon's order tracker acted like it was on the way, despite not saying it was shipped. Then last Wednesday, it said it would arrive by 8PM, only to then suddenly tell me my order was delayed. I've been waiting for nearly a week and still no word on when mine'll be shipped. Only that it's "temporarily out of stock" and that I'll be sent an email when it is shipped. Sticking with Amazon, as trying to buy from somewhere else will be more expensive and my collecting has only gotten more expensive since I've been forced to do all of it online.
    EDIT: Just checked the listing. Says there's one left in stock, sold by Amazon. But if I go into other options, it lists Amazon as being temporarily put of stock. Weird.

    Answering this rhetorical question, it's been paid for and shipped, but I do realize that it may spend some time sitting in customs so as long as I get it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
