    So I got an email from GameStop asking me to review the Sky Lynx they still haven’t sent me.

    no worries though because my Walmart one came through yesterday. This just reminded me to cancel.

    Got a shipping notice from GameStop for what I thought was my Flame Toys G1 Optimus Prime that I pre-ordered way back in April. Turns out it was Jango Fett instead.

    My Furai G1 Prime just moved to "Preparing for Shipment" so they got inventory in and are beginning to process orders!

    I ended up canceling my pre-order about a week ago after finding a Skylynx at a local target. Between reward points and gift cards from earlier in the year, it brought the final price down to ~$23 out of pocket.

    I finally gave up hoping GameStop would restock and honor the Sky Lynx 20% off and cancelled. Thankfully, there’s been a price war on Amazon on Sky Lynx with 3P sellers, so I went ahead and bought it for ~$5 more than my GS preorder. Good luck to those continuing to stick it out!

    I got my Jango Fett the other day and wow hes just so awesome. I have him standing next to my newly acquired and finally got from EE Mace Windu. I was talking to my GF and i didn't realized it at the moment but later realized that Mace Windu cut Jango Fetts head off in AOTC. Then she said to me maybe i should talk to them so that they get along with no head cutting off going on here. Well the story goes as of now that Mace Windu is quietly getting along with Jango but he's NOT the happiest camper here in the Transformers/Star Wars Universe here.

    I don’t know if I was the last list member still holding out hope for Sky Lynx, but allegedly he’s finally shipped. If you’re still out there waiting, apparently it’s not over til it’s over.

    Gamestop is out of their mind. Every figure is $10 more than it should be. $20 Core class, $30 Deluxes, $40 Voyagers??? Please don't pay those crazy markups

    That's because they're bleeding money like crazy because of how shittily they're run and they're trying to make as much as possible. Further note: If you preordered a PS5 or the new X-Box at a store, get your money out of that shit. If that store closes, you will never see your money again. Gamestop Corporate is more than aware of that, and their official policy is to shrug their shoulders because most people won't know how to get their money back.
