    Well canceled my replacement Grimlock/Mirage set I got ordered. My missing package showed up. Apparently this morning my dad saw a mail person trying to shove a package into our mailbox that clearly didn't fit. My dad asked who it was for, as we have a shared driveway and the mail people are too stupid to figure that out too with giving us the wrong mail/packages too.........aside from also sending us another house's mail two blocks away with the same numbers in our address or vice versa. Says its for the house on the other side of the driveway, despite the fact they were trying to put it in our mailbox which would have been the wrong one if it was for them. A couple hours ago my neighbor brings over a package which my dad recognized as the one that the mail person was trying to shove in our mailbox that they claimed was for the neighbors, it was mine.

    I swear......do they not even bother to see if people are coherent or literate with reading and comprehension skills when they hire people for the postal service now? With the stupidity I've been seeing the last couple years alone from them I'm amazed they can even drive the mail truck without killing themselves or someone else! <_<

    Well shoot, looks like I should have kept my Amazon preorder of Sideswipe/Skywarp instead of cancelling for Hasbro Pulse on Friday as I would have the set early this week from Amazon instead of later this week from Pulse. Oh well a few days won't hurt and Jeff Bezos doesn't get my money.

    Same here. I took delivery and opened the packaging to confirm the figures were in good shape before canceling my Amazon preorder.

    When this has happened with my orders in the past, it's because it's coming out of a DC (distribution center) that is pretty close or from a local hub that is extremely close. e.g. I've had stuff ship out the morning of the eta delivery date and it's always arrived (barring the occasional "delivered" no show which can happen on any order).

    Well it looks like the Label was Created for the Hasbro Pulse order and Fedex claims a delivery date of this Wednesday.

    Grimlock and Mirage arrived yesterday. Unfortunately not in a shipping box. At least it was in the brown outer Hasbro box instead of them just slapping a label on the retail one. Does anyone recall if they gave the option to make sure it was in an Amazon shipping box for this one? It's possible there was and I just missed it, but I don't see anything in the orders details about it, or for the Skywarp / Sideswipe pack which did come in a shipping box.

    All I saw on either order at checkout were the delivery speed/date options that are always available.

    Stuff like this is either sloppy logistics and/or there is an internal memo that either says not to box it or says to box it and it's being ignored. In all likelihood, there are people that simply don't understand and/or care that some manufacturer's shipping containers hold personal and/or monetary value (e.g. insert sealed case of vintage item here).

    I don't remember if there was an option for a shipping box. If there was, I'm sure I didn't click it. But both sets arrived in an outer box for me. So I guess YMMV.

    I seem to recall getting some kind of message during checkout for Skywarp/Sideswipe. It was that message that states "item will ship in a box revealing it's contents..." and that I should select Amazon packaging as if it was a gift. However, I don't recall that message for Grimlock/Mirage. Otherwise I would have shipped it as a gift as well.
