    ^Tried ordering Generations Selects Hubcap from Amazon, sold and shipped by Amazon.com $24.31 (had a $10 courtesy credit to use).

    Box had the Hubcap sticker on it, inside was Rotorstorm.

    Replacement was Rotorstorm again with a Hubcap stick on the box.

    Not going for a third strike.

    If anyone missed out on Rotorstorm, and wants one for $24.31, order a Hubcap sold and shipped by Amazon.com, you'll probably get Rotorstorm instead.

    Wow I'm actually considering this lol. I'd feel bad if it were actually Hubcap because I would return it.

    Very tempting.

    Yeah, I would as well.

    Besides, I want a second sealed one, and not knowing what was really inside the box would drive me absolutely insane. :lol

    He's a great figure. Great sculpt and highly posable. Go for it.

    You guys should, there's 10 left, and they are probably all Rotorstorms with a Hubcap label on the box.

    If it's actually Hubcap, no hassle returns. Purchases made between Oct 1 to Dec 31 are eligible for returns until Jan 31, 2022 per their extended holiday return policy this year.

    I just got off Amazon chat, I told them I didn't want to go for attempt number 3 and let them know all their remaining stock is probably not the correct figure inside/is a bad batch.

    They were super awesome and told me to keep the figure, gave me a refund including the $10 courtesy credit I used, which was nice, since they don't normally give courtesy credit back.

    there was actually a whole run of figures mislabeled in the selects where Rotorstorm got a hubcap sticker. That was a topic for discussion in the hasbro thread back when they first shipped.

    Well, I found Waspinator and Shadow Panther at Walmart today, so I canceled my Amazon and TCP orders. I never thought I’d see them so it was a race to see who shipped first.. they both lost!

    :confused: 

    Do you think it's safe now to order Hubcap from BBTS or Hasbro Pulse and actually get a Hubcap instead of Rotorstorm?

    I was casually looking a couple weeks back, and noticed it was all 3rd party sellers for Hubcap on Amazon.com up until about ~10/12.

    I was surprised when they had 16 'sold and shipped by Amazon' from out of no where. I ordered when there was 16 left, and exchange/replacement at 14 left, lol.

    So I'm guessing all 16 was/is Rotorstorms with Hubcap sticker.

    pretty sure pulse addressed that on their social media after so many complaints. I remembered the switch...but couldn't remember which figure it was...and I ordered 2 of each for me and a buddy...I remembered I opened all 4 to make sure I got 2 and 2...luckily, it was 2 Rotorstorms and 2 Hubcaps.

    I ordered 2 of Hubcap from BBTS at 2 different times, one as Hubcap and one for customizing. Both came in as Hubcap, so chances are good that you will get the proper figure if you order from BBTS.

    This happened to me with Deep Cover - when my preorder showed up. it was Tigertrack in the box, so they let me keep the extra Tigertrack and sent me another Deep Cover instead. Been a rough year for labeling Selects exclusives, I guess :lol

    Damn. I have a bunch of unopened selects. Now I need to open to check if they're the correct figure. SMH.
