    Really want to get my Rodimus from Target since I got him for cheaper thanks to credit from them screwing me over on a previous pre-order. Now after having to approve a second delay, looks like this is going down the same path smh.

    If it wasn't for this forum, I wouldn't know to check for the delay email because in my gmail, the Target emails don't go to "Primary", they go to "Promotions".

    Also why THE HELL do they always send these delay approval notifications at 4am??? it's like they want you to miss it so they can cancel

    It's likely because they oversell the preorders, and that happens because they exaggerate how soon they're going to get stock. At this point it's an established pattern.

    I'm absolutely certain I'll end up getting Rodimus and the Ark either in-store, or through CMDStore long before Target.com will ever give me what I ordered. *sigh* They can't run their business to save their lives, not really. The store? Sure. (Well, to some degree.) Online? It's like this: "You can order from Target or you can take the firing squad. It's up to Target to save you." You might as well just let the firing squad shoot ya, it's quicker and at least you know what's coming. Heck, Target would probably come to the funeral with a package and it has the wrong item in it.

    When I went to target they said the ark will be sold at 7/22 so I suppose at 7/22 the ark will be at stores at target

    At least will probably show up in Target at some point.
    Rodimus shouldn't be a big problem.
    Saw sky lynx there repeatedly.
    Ark could be iffy.
    Only saw that twice.

    What will really be bad if on 7/22 the ark and Rodimus become available as part of Target's Summer Geek Out and then they ship to the people ordering on 7/22 first, while people who have had pre-orders for weeks and weeks and had to approve delays are still at the back of the line. I hope that doesn't happen but given the way Target treats pre-orders it wouldn't surprise me. Overall this month has been good about giving people a chance to find some figures that were seemingly impossible to purchase previously. I doubt exclusives like Thrust and Runabout will get the same reissue treatment this go around but hopefully in the future.

    Target did reissue the rogue and gambit vintage figures which came out around the same time I think as thrust and runabout...so there is still a chance for those 2 to be re released again. (unless it's only the stuff that is made in China which is where the Joe's and marvel figures are made from...and if so that really sucks...) Then again Hasbro did re release omega Supreme and Scorponok....

    Target is SUPER bad with this. They won't send the e-mail and then claim you canceled. I had my Quint canceled like this... thankfully I was able to nab Pit of Judgement which I prefered anyway. But this is why I don't preorder much anymore with Target and stick with Pulse. They take the longest but they have never canceled on me.

    I had originally preordered Rodimus, Galvatron, and the Ark when they were announced in April. Eventually decided to cancel them because of the constant $300 hold.

    That said I’m sorry for the lot of you who had your PO’s cancelled because you didn’t reply to an email sent at 3-4 am. Nearly happened to me with ER Thrust when that debacle happened. Damn near lost it twice because of those emails.

    I'm already jumping through hoops with them to keep my ~$14 Wingfinger pre-order from like the end June alive. :lol 

    I thought about cancelling and getting one through hasbrotoyshop eBay when it was available for 9.99 ~last week, but I couldn't find anything else I wanted to hit the $14.99 for free shipping, so I just watched it sell out. :p

    I’m going to be really angry if Target pulls this shit with TWrecks. I hope to Primus they won’t but I wouldn’t be surprised

    Amazon just upped my Scorponok date to the end of July, which is what Target delayed it to. It’s a race to see which will ship first!

    This is the first time Target has canceled my preoders. I ordered Galvatron, Tracks and Rodimus together in two separate orders. I approved a delay for Tracks and Rodimus a few days ago. Now I see Tracks and Rodimus were canceled in both orders.

    I immediately canceled the remaining Galvatrons after seeing this as I already received one from Amazon.

    I just realized that Walmart's Collector Con starts on the 22nd. Most of the Targets I've spoken to expect to have these items in stock by that date. I wonder if there's some significance to that date? It's just odd that July 22nd (and that week, basically) is being targeted (no pun intended) by both retailers. I'm surprised Amazon hasn't gotten in on the action, yet.

    I order the ark when it was 159.99 with my red card so it's 162 but if I find it in stores I wouldn't mind to pay 172 for it but idk if we'll even find in stores
