    Hooray my Kingdom Galvatron now says coming tomorrow instead of mid August.

    Oh no that probably means it will have the botched shoulders. I was hoping that since the release date was that far off they'd have stock of the fixed shoulder figures by then to ship out. Oh well. o_O

    I have no way to prove this of course, but I'm betting that Amazon was one of the first online retailers to receive stock for Galvatron simply because they are the largest online retailer out there and Hasbro would give them stock priority. Walmart and Target probably also got first dibs on stock fulfillment. Since there doesn't appear to be any kind of factory recall announced, I would also bet that people will be getting Galvatrons with bad shoulders from these places for a while, at least when ordering online.

    Mine arrives today! He went from early August to mid July to 7/7. Speculation is we get a Nemesis Prime and another Seeker in Core-- I hope so! But also bring on new molds too.

    Sounds good, but Amazon has treated me badly in the past for card mounted toys. Do they just grab the toy of the rack, out of the box with their whole hand like grabbing a handful of peanuts and jam it into the box with enough force to send it across the room?

    Totally think that toy orders are fulfilled with "as much anger as possible" sometimes.

    Sorry to hear that, but if you're looking to get MISB, you're better off getting it at specialty stores or online resellers that offer collector grade stuff. Also depends on which fulfillment center does your order(s). The normal online stores like Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc, the "handling" varies since different people do that (handling). Personally, I don't care much about the packaging, as long as the item is not damaged, and my order actually gets to me.

    That is what I normally do, but I have taken the risk for a sale item and got a good box in the past. It is all a crap shoot though.

    Just got shipping notice for Scorpnok, Rhinox and Galvatron. Already found Rhinox a few weeks back so I have to return this one now.

    Ordered kingdom scorponok last Thursday morning with a mid-August delivery.
    I told myself I could wait.
    It might even show up before then.
    Four hours later I get a notice moving date up to July 17-18.
    Jaw dropped.
    Definitely could I wait.
    48 hours later, date moved again.
    July 7th.
    Tomorrow.
    Got shipping notice 2hrs ago.
    Now my only concern is hoping the scorpion arrives before Elsa does.
    I'm in SE Pennsylvania.
    Which comes first...
    The scorpion or the rain.

    Is anyone concerned that Grindor and Jolt will ship before Hasbro announces them? It's odd because preorders are usually months away before the figures ship, but this time would these figures ship like weeks before there is any official announcement from Hasbro? Or would they be delayed?

    I don't care one bit if toys ship before Hasbro announces them, or if Hasbro skips an announcement altogether.
