Do you think this new product could be stepping away from what we love about Transformers as toys?

    Ouch! Just got charged as well. One day after Victory Saber. That shipping notification will help my wallet feel better though.

    So far just the charge, but it was late last night. I’m thinking shipping notices will start today or tomorrow. (Which works great for me, I’m off work all next week haha)

    no charge yet. i PO'd EARLY. i wonder if they are charging by order received or charging the folks who ordered later at 749.99 first...you know to get more money up front in case they couldn't fill all the orders. that would be shady. so for those who got a charge already...were you in the 699.99 crew or the 749.99 crew? haha

    TBH i don't mind a few days delay. that would get me into the next billing cycle on the CC i linked. lol.

    And shipped! FedEx says delivery by tomorrow but I highly doubt that. Thursday or Friday are more likely. I ordered as soon as it was announced at $699 on Pulse.

    I put mine in almost immediately, the promo was still being shown so it was definitely during the first batch.

    As expected, an indirect signature is required for the delivery.

    I pre-ordered the next day it was up for $699.99 and just got the e-mail saying it has shipped (it hasn't, just the label has been created). So not sure if they are shipping in the order they were placed, but this morning I checked and the estimated ship date was 11/1 before I got the "something is on its way" e-mail from Hasbro Pulse.

    Sorry, not comfortable posting my order number. Here is the date/time stamp on the order since that can help with deciding if my order is before or after yours.

    My order date/time stamp is April 9 @ 12:00pm. My original ship date was listed as 8/2/21, then changed to 11/1/21, then to 10/31/21, then to 10/11/21, then shipped on 10/12/21.
