    None of the Amazon Europe sites have a good track record of getting their exclusives over the last few years. Go .com

    Probably good advice.

    Always bought from Amazon.com, but this year realised that with both Germany and now Nl I'd get free shipping which made things a lot cheaper than importing it from the USA. And it worked for many items, but recently it's become problematic. Maybe it's always been so with exclusives or maybe it's just the pandemic screwing up the supply chain.

    It’s not just the exclusives. Amazon NL has been doing the same shit for months now with Quintesson, Airwave and Smokescreen. They’ve also been cancelling and relisting orders to weasel their way out of the Amazon preorder price guarantee.

    Same story here. I bought a few WFC figures recently from Amazon with no issues. But apparently hassle-free only goes for instock items. I got a mail in regards to my Bluestreak order saying they’re still trying to source more copies, so they suggested I look for third party sellers on Amazon.nl instead. What do mean 'still'? And third part sellers, lol what? Do it yourself and then ship to me, you fucking dweebs.

    Yeah me too, it happens all the time with Amazon.nl and also amazon.de. I actually missed out on Greenlight and siege Skywarp because of this. But it happens with their regular releases too. They kept canceling their earthrise Micromasters. And now they cancel this. Also got a mail about the quintessons... I guess it's time for me to realize Amazon just isn't reliable in Europe.

    Normally I would order at Kapow, but since all these releases are so fragmented and there is no option for stacking it just gets too expensive preordering them all seperately. And since all these exclusives sell out so extremely fast it's useless to wait for a couple of them and order them together.

    Sigh.. But then again first world problems... :)

    apparently not for exclusives/pre-orders. When I order something that's in stock there's no issue. Allthoug, strangely enough, I bought the new Lego AT-AT from Amazon.nl and according to the tracking provided through Amazon...it's now in the Amazon facility in France. I'm pretty sure the Amazon.nl and the .de facilities are much, much closer...


    That's my issue with Kapow as well. I've lost count how many items I wanted to buy from them but didn't because it was just one item making the shipping too expensive. Great they have flat rate shipping, but that only works if you can buy a lot. And that rarely happens for me (and often after several items I wanted are already gone).

    But of course, they don't have supply for Bluestreak anymore so that's a moot point anyway. Thanks a lot amazon.nl

    I’m giving it a week and then I’ll look for an alternate source if anything is even out there. Currently have 15 separate preorders open at 4 different companies. One extra won’t make a difference at this point. Thanks amazon for offering but not delivering :banghead:

    I would compliment you on a great photo, but I am too jealous that you have it, and too frustrated with Hasbro for not releasing it yet, or even acknowledging that it is being released, to reply in a rational manner.

    I've just seen this at £40 retail, which is twice the price of Smokescreen and only £5 cheaper than the masterpiece. Seems a stoopid price, but is it a good deal?
