    HunterGreen2005 takes the blame for the song. Capirus, the sin of suggesting Jar Jar’s cover of the song might be unforgivable.

    A miracle of miracles my Jar Jar came packed immaculately. Of all the figures to get that treatment.

    Just received the same. Kind of stinks when I’m seeing many people finding Hot Rod in stores, and then Amazon sends this on the day it was supposed to arrive to those of us that ordered. Definitely makes it hard to keep the love of collecting alive! :redface2:

    I'm not a GI Joe collector either but your statement is very true. GI Joe collectors had been waiting for a 6" collector focused line for years and when they finally get one the distribution is so bad, even on mainline non-exclusives that it is extremely difficult to get any product. That has to suck.

    I know stuff happens and it's not the end of the world but what really is crazy is those that pre-ordered Hot Rod last week when the release date was showing Thursday and actually got a shipment while my original order never updated from April 5. I went in and put in another order for the sooner ETA with the delivery for today.

    I never got a ship notice or got charged so I had reached out to Amazon about that. I spoke to someone via chat who "assured" me it would be shipped in 2 business days without fail. Then I get a poorly worded email a few hours later from their "escalation team" that recommend "I please cancel my order and order from another seller and they will refund my shipping. We just request it be sold and shipped by Amazon". Talk about contradictory not to mention the next seller was $15 more expensive. :lol  Then this morning I get an email saying it was delayed with no ETA. I know things happen beyond our control but I reached back out to Amazon this morning for clarification on the different stories I got over the last 12 hours and the agent this morning sent me to a supervisor who then said Hot Rod should ship around middle February and gave me a $35 promo credit.

    But today was not a completely bad day. I did get my Cyberverse Deluxe Prowl in and while I haven't opened him yet, he looks pretty good. I think I will repurpose him as "RID 1.0 Prowl 2" on my Generations shelf.

    Dang that isn't the first time this has happened. It was up for a short time on Sunday too but when I tried to put it in my cart it went out of stock again. I wonder what's going on with the stock of this figure for this to keep happening.

    Probably people that preordered him to be safe are canceling because they’re finding him in Targets.

    Pfft. Kids these days. Back in my day, we were lucky if we could find enough combiner limbs to make one combiner out of random autobots and decepticons. People claimed the Stunticons were never actually released. The catalogue was the only reason you even knew most the line existed. You went to K-Mart, and you prayed. You'd randomly find Shrapnel on the shelf in 1989. For some reason your Headstrong came with no stickers, but two guns.

    Honestly I don't know. Earthrise has had some issues with how some of the molds are distributed, with a lot of very popular, and very long anticipated figures of popular characters getting kinda shorted as exclusives. Seriously, every seeker variant I was actually interested in, Bumblebee, and of course Ironhide and Prowl being key examples of it. I hope Hasbro does more runs, or makes the figures avaliable again later on down the road, much like how the Classics seeker mold or Bumblebee got multiple releases.

    I mean I'd buy a individual Ironhide or Skywarp in a second if I could. In some cases the fact I'd have to pay for the second figure I didn't want kinda hurt me looking for things before they sold out.
