    Ouch....

    In a completely unsurprising turn of events, mine still hasn't shipped yet.

    I assume my charge for them will drop off my card once again by tomorrow.

    Why are people saying their orders were cancelled? I just called Amazon & the guy said I have a pre-order guarantee. They are waiting for a refresh from the manufacturer.

    This is confusing.
    1. First the guy said my order is packed & ready to go.
    2. The Amazon assistant chat says my order is in the packing stage.
    3. Then guy says they are awaiting a refresh from the manufacturer & they'll charge me & ship it as soon as it's back in stock & ready to go. It won't arrive tomorrow but should be shipping within a few days.

    :wtf: 

    Here's the email he sent after I hung up:

    This is David from Amazon, the agent on the phone earlier. It was a pleasure for me to assist you with your inquiries regarding the order:

    - Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Galactic Odyssey Collection Paradron Medics 2-Pack, AMAZON EXCLUSIVE, Ages 8 and Up, 5.5-inch

    On my end, it looks ready to be shipped, we are waiting to get more of them for us to send it as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

    I hope this information and my assistance has been helpful.

    Please don't hesitate to contact us if ever a problem should arise.

    My experience was...somewhat different. Preordered the Paradron Medics 9/27, looked good to ship until 12/3 when I got an e-mail from Amazon that said "Due to a lack of availability, we will not be able to obtain the following item from your order. We've canceled the item and apologize for the inconvenience." If I go to my order page on Amazon, that part of my order is gone - no history, no cancellation notice, it's just like it was never placed. If not for the e-mails I kept from them, there'd be no record of my attempt to buy them at all.

    When I spoke to Amazon, they have no reason nor recourse. Just a "sorry, sucks to be you" (albeit much more professionally, and from a very polite CSR who is given *none* of the tools they need to deal with queries like this).

    I thought I pre-ordered some Transformers figures but apparently the only thing I ordered was DISAPPOINTMENT.:( 

    amazon.jpg

    And I got my Airwave shipped in a bag/envelope so the box was ripped & slightly crushed. But it looks like it was ripped before it shipped.

    Amazon started 2020 with an A+ but ended with an F-.

    This was my experience as well, with the added "F-U" from Amazon, of not even receiving an email from them. That item just simply vanished from my order. Completely. With no trace, notification, or explanation.

    Thankfully the one I ordered from eBay, for a relatively very minor mark-up, finally showed up yesterday (a week late), and there are no apparent issues with Ratchet.

    Boy isn't this the truth!

    Can anyone help me with a preorder here? The courier service where I preordered to Peru took my money and didn't preorder it at all.

    Good to know my order wasn\'t the only one who got cancelled. My Ironhide/Prowl order is still set as \"Order Received.\" I

    Mine arrived at the destination at Stackry, NH. I can’t speak for the condition yet as it’s being reposted to my home in England.

    Just thought I’d update you all, for those who want to know the state of US postal service deliveries, etc.

    Hey, mine says it's coming tomorrow by 10pm!

    I'm guessing Amazon has mastered transporter technology.

    Yeah. Mine’s in the same boat. Yet you go to the page and it says “we don’t know when or if this will be available”. Very frustrating especially since I already paid for it.

    Mine was the same, but it stated unavailable day of. So it will most definitely be canceled. As there is no more stock. Hasn't been for three weeks.

    Same boat here, postponed from 7th to 20th, I suppose we could be postponed again or cancelled.
    Within this night I will know my destiny.:confused: 
    It's weird though because some Facebook penpals got shipped during last week

    Same as you here, order placed Nov 08, and should arrive tomorrow. On the status page nothing has been shipped.

    This new Amazon way of canceling orders is stressful, I had this experience with Skylynx and Scorponok.
    "yes yes we cancel everything, manage now you are an adult. kisses. lol"

    News tomorrow, maybe !

    Mail doesn't run on Sundays. DER!:rolleyes: 

    They're just going to keep delaying it by a few days until they get more in stock. Same with the Ironhide/Prowl set. Go look at that thread. People are still getting their orders shipped slowly. I'm not really worried.

    This system they're using totally sucks but what can you do? They should get all the stock to cover the pre-orders in 1 shot & ship them all out at the same time. They seem to love being half-assed & dysfunctional. "Arriving SUNDAY".......yeah, okay! Keep smokin the funky stuff. Psycho's!

    One thing's for sure, in 2020 the scalpers truly won. They've been kicking our asses thanks to all these damn exclusives. I love how this shit always ends up in the hands of the ebay scalpers while actual collectors can't get their orders filled. :mad: 

    Whatever! I'm so over this!
