    That's a shame. I would be pissed. Just opened my Grimlock/Mirage and Sideswipe/Skywarp sets to check. Thankfully they're there.

    What exactly was "deformed" about it? I only ask because on mine when I first transformed it like some very small pieces of plastic from the red panels that you flip out from the legs to make the upper rear "trunk" for lack of a better term came off off. Its not really noticeable so it wasn't a huge deal, and I mostly just got the set for the Skywarp, but I thought it was odd they came off from both panels like that.

    If my Grimlock/Mirage that was "delivered" today that is nowhere to be found went to the neighbors I'm thinking they woulda brought it back by now in the evening. Had to order a replacement set so now that won't be here till around the 2nd of next month <_<

    If Sideswipe & Maximal Skywarp are anything to go by, there will be stock available of Mirage & Grimlock to do an exchange with since Sideswipe & Maximal Skywarp are still available for purchase (sold & shipped by Amazon) after release.

    Amazon will typically send the free replacement out and then you can grab the weapon that you are missing then send the rest of that set back as the return. Advanced replacements like this also make things easier if it's a QC issue exchange since you can compare both copies in case you only have an issue with something below a mushroom peg or ball joint or anything else that "pops/clips" on. Just keep in mind that you will be charged for the advanced copy if you don't return what your supposed to by the cutoff date they give you when you setup the exchange.

    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.
