    Amazon just canceled my fucking Ultimate Gohan preorder without my approval. :mad 

    I know he isn't available yet because he isn't out in Japan until this month. WTF?

    EDIT: At least they asked me for blue haired Goku.

    I was about to ask anubis20 if he had gotten the email asking to confirm he was okay with keeping the order despite not having the item yet... as Amazon has done with literally every single fucking pre-order of an SHF I had this year because they just cannot get the damn dates right (I'm more and more convinced that's why they aren't listing anything new - too many complaints)... But Kain having that happen too sounds to me like they're cancelling all. That sucks. :/

    I just got the approval needed email for my Mario Play Set D.

    Maybe I should just go over to BBTS... despite wanting to use my free shipping as much as possible...

    Yeah, I just sent a nice email to Amazon complaining about this. I told them that instead of paying the $99 for Prime I could just use that money towards paying quicker shipping at places like BBTS.

    I was just about to post this. No need to bother with Hasbro's Kylo anymore.

    yea they usually send out emails saying they couldnt get it yet and will provide a later date or one asking for approval. But this was straight up cancellation. :mad  and of course now its unavailable. this was my second copy so i'll just secure it from another retailer

    Amazon cancelled my order too. Needless to say, I'm not happy. I think I'll cancel Frieza and Goku and get them from BBTS. I'll just have them all ship together once they're all released.

    Oh man.. I'm only collecting Sith Lords from Figuarts. I've got Vader, and Maul coming out this month... I'm hoping for Palpatine and Dooku eventually. I've avoided most SW spoilers... but would Kylo count as a Sith Lord? Ugh... I may order him and sell him after the movie if he's not what I want for my collection.

    According to JJ he does not (
    He's a member of the Knights of Ren, and "Ren" is actually a title, similar to the Sith "Darth".
    ) But this is the same JJ who kept saying Khan won't be in Star Trek II. And hey, it's your collection, you get to have final say on who's in and who's out.

    Apparently there is a Captain Phasma as well. I might cave for that one as I really like the design.

    SHF Captain Phasma, eh? Nice. Wonder if Grievous is in the works somewhere.

    I'm not sure what to do with these Force Awakens figures. I'm trying to stay spoiler free and have no idea if I'll like any of them (beyond looks), but the cheap pre-orders will likely be out before the movie. :/

    With all these cancellations, do you guys think Amazon is even getting Gohan in stock at all?

    Oooooooo..... The TFA SHF are must haves. Phasma is pretty much guaranteed to be better than Hasbro's, and Kylo already looks much better.

    I recommend ordering the DBZ figures from Toyzinthebox. Free shipping, same price, but you have to pay up front.

    Toy Dojo and TFSource also offer DBZ & other Bluefin-offered Figuarts (though I know some have issues with TFSource because of a variety of past or recent issues).

    They will, but they will end up being bought by the scalpers.

    Anyway, apparently Kylo goes on sale tonight. I hope the wifi in my hotel room works at that time because I want him.
