got t-wrecks preordered! yes!!
Thanks for the help
got mine preordered for 13 dollars red card 40 dollars off coupon if you open a red card...Sweet
I decided against T-Wrecks. If I got him, I would want all of the other BM Dinobots redone and that ain’t gonna happen. I’m happy with my original set.
Bring on the Worlds Collide and Road Rage!
New one does still work really well with the old ones, though do overs of all of them would be nice
*Looks at currently backordered target orders* Come on....I want my Rodimus and my Ark....
Hopefully they ship next week
BBTS got the deluxe wave in. if BBTS gets Ark or Rodimus in I might bite the bullet and pay a lil extra to get it sooner.
Does anyone have the current Studio Series 86 DPCI numbers?
Sorry, realized after I replied 3 of the 5 are Kingdom.
Well… Target keeps pre authorizing Rodimus so fingers crossed it’s not getting canceled
I have a question, what is pre authorization
It's where they process the payment (sometimes in full) on your card to make sure it's legit and processes so when the final payment does come due, they can charge the card without issue. It drops off in 1-5 business days. (Generally 3-5.)
Target, however, likes to reinitialize the pre-auth once a month, so your card will get hit multiple times while waiting for the order to be fulfilled if they ever do at all. They tend to delay and delay and then cancel without much warning. (An email or two, perhaps.)
Doesn’t look like they’re in stock locally on Brickseek. Or is there a wave/size-based DPCI that should be used for inventory checking instead?
Brick seek doesn't really work anymore
It's really annoying how Target in particular does their pre-authorizations. I get why companies do it but if you have multiple pre-orders going it can really eat up your available balance fast and Target holds seem to last way longer than other places. Even if you cancel a pre-order it takes days to drop off so you can have your Red Card balance paid in full but not be able to use it because your available balance is taken up with pre-orders that don't drop for months. I remember not being able to use my Red Card in store one time when I first got it because I had a small initial spending limit of only a couple hundred bucks and I did some preorders. The way Target works is you can have $100 available balance but if you buy something that cost $100.01 in the store it will just decline your Red Card instead of letting you charge your available spending limit pf $100 and then saying you need to use another form of payment for the remaining penny.
Totally agree with this ^. If I didn't get the 5% off and the exclusives I wouldn't even bother with their red card. That and the limit seems to be crap.
I don't expect Rodimus Prime preorders to actually be filled until a month after the figure has been found at brick and mortar.
Even then half of all preorders will likely be canceled.
Then again kingdom Galvatron pre order was filled I think, or did I miss people saying their order of Galvatron got cancelled?
Galvatron is a perfect example. I found one in store at least a month ago, so I canceled my order.
