    I have two recently ordered items on top, then maybe a dozen other already reviewed things then another pre order item.

    Whatever the case, I really just don't understand why they removed the option.

    I felt like such an idiot all weekend. Long story short, I was hesitating for weeks to get CW Devastator who was available again at reasonable price. Money was not really the issue, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a (big) toy. Also I kept thinking we might get a better one in a few years. Anyway, got a pretty good raise and bonus friday so I told my wife I’m gonna treat myself and order one. And then I got to Amazon and it was out of stock. Classic. This is so me. And it was there the day before, I remember popping again in my recommendation.

    So I kept refreshing all weekend and monday also, hopping it would come back in stock. Nope, looks like it was gone for good this time. Then tuesday morning, there he was. Back in stock june 5th. Ordered ! Half an hour later I checked for fun and it was gone again. I might have snagged a cancelled order, I don’t know. The weird thing is that my estimated delivery was june 10th and now it’s may 29th. Let’s see...

    Awesome! Glad you got one! I haven't taken mine out of the box yet because I'm preparing to move, but really excited to finally open it (and a bunch of others like Predaking, Tripticon, Sky Linx, etc)

    Sticker shock. Yup, been there many times. That's why I don't have any of the Titans, unless you count Devastator. I couldn't have swung Metroplex at the time, but probably could have managed Fort Max and Trypticon. But ouch. And I assume that Omega Supreme is gone by now.

    But hey, congratulations on the raise and bonus! And Devastator is cool. The individual bots aren't spectacular, but combined... intimidating, just like how Kup practically dropped a gear when he saw him combine in 2005. And he's going to look so awesome with the SS86 Dinobots. (Do you suppose that Slash will be way too small to hang out with them?)

    I apologize if this has been covered already but did Amazon ever get any Kingdom Galvatron preorders? I never see him or Rodimus.

    This could be affected by the price hikes, whereas the other set might not have.

    Yeah that sucks. I preordered anyway but might cancel. Hasbro pulse has it for $47.99 but only open to "premium" members only right now.
