    I ordered one after you said that, supposed to be here tomorrow. Haven't even been charged yet. Debating on canceling it or waiting for Amazon to cancel it. lol

    I have never preordered TF’s from amazon before. I picked this option since I have prime, so no shipping. Do they typically ship before the original estimate date ? I don’t mind waiting a bit, but it bugs me that Galvatron is still estimated to ship as far as september, while other online stores are already selling it and there’s shelf sightings.

    Honestly, it depends. Sometimes they do, especially with their exclusives, most of the time they don't. I've always believed it has to do with Hasbro's agreements with Brick and Mortar retailers, especially since Pulse ships later too, but I've been vehemently told I'm wrong.

    Think there will be any good deals on TFs on Prime days/June 21-22?

    I'm guessing the three warehouse-warming Galactic Odyssey sets (Autobot Clones, micromasters, Sky Lynx add-on set) will go on sale, say between 15 to 30% off?

    It'll be a nice surprise if there's an exclusive that goes up to order unannounced.

    I'd say 9 out of 10 times they ship on the date on the product page. If I find stuff early in stores and/or other sites, I just buy from there and cancel my Amazon order.

    If you want Galvatron with the correct shoulder assembly, might be beneficial that Amazon is getting it to you later since it probably means a better chance the stock will be a latter production run. Or just do a visual inspection if you find him at a brick and mortar first.

    That would be nice, though I've seen the Sky Lynx expansion set sell pretty well. Micromasters and Clones though... yeah, they haven't sold as well. Though if they go on sale, I'm definitely nabbing them... I like Micromasters, I have the Decepticon Clones... and hey, might as well add another Ironworks and Airwave redeco to finish the trilogy of the recolors I have (renaming the Ironworks redeco to Moonradar to differentiate him from retail Ironworks).

    I’ve been waiting to get the Botropolis set until I see if it goes on sale for Prime Day. I just don’t feel like spending $60 on the set (in all fairness it seems like a good set I’m just not a base mode guy)

    I ordered the Botropolis set. $40 was kind of what I was wanting to pay for it and after tax it was $44 so I’m happy. Also if anyone has Discover there’s an extra 40% off coupon if you use your Discover but you have to use Cashback Bonus. I didn’t have any sadly on my card so I wasn’t able to use it

    FYI The Botropolis set is now listed as “See all buying options” aka the Amazon stock is now gone and only marketplace sellers have it

    When the Galactic Odyssey Micromaster was first announced, I was like not for $30, but ~$20ish sure... why not. Now the moment has presented itself, I'm kinda hesitating, lol. :p 

    Also, think all sold by “Amazon Warehouse” deal stuff is 25% off applied at checkout during Prime Day, so click around.

    I just ordered Kingdom Blackarachnia “used like new” for $14.24. :thumb 

    There’s one left, gotta click on “New and Used from…”:

    Well not transformers related but for what i plan to use it for will be but the cricut explore air 2 mint prime day for 169. Autobot and decepticon symbols maybe for customs? That way they can be painted on and not stickered. Thought i was gonna get away this year without a prime day purchase.

    That's too bad. I could have used a white Airwave. But I suppose another Airwave won't be too bad a consolation for Prime Day.
