    Yeah. I am bad at budgets at terrible at planning. Even I got sick of punishing myself with pre-orders and eventually learned my lesson. It's worked out pretty well.

    Spoilers! I have that vid in my cue. It would be nice if we have to adopt the Japanese pre-order model that we get the solid release dates with it but I doubt that will happen.

    I'll take this all day over the constantly late bullshit that some third parties do. Under promise, over deliver, always.

    I've transitioned from preorder everything, to not preordering shit except exclusives and or shit I really want or know will be in demand. The rest, I wait for DD or Movies Unlimited or Jeff's warehouse or ebay sellers Bullseye or VIP outlet.

    Got burned too many times when I preordered for retail and see the shit half off in a few months. I did miss out on SS86 Bee cuz I was vacationing but I bet he's gonna be everywhere in 3 months time so I ain't sweating it. I'm still playing discount chicken, but only with shit I won't cry for if I missed it.

    As for preorders coming 3 months early, well they've been doing that since since covid. Cuz during covid, everything and your mom's underwear were late. Cuz it's better to set a date and drop it 3 months early than to be 3 months late. Hasbro can't win. Shit arrives late, ppl bitch. Shit arrives early, ppl bitch.

    :thumb  to pretty much ALL of this, but the salient point is at the end. :lol 

    Discount chicken is also right on the money, but you're also not one of the folks who bitch about it if it doesn't work out the way you hope.

    So has there been any news at all about the rumored and leaked Doom and Destruction Mayhem Bludgeon and Ruckus 2-pack? I am pretty on top of my TF news but still could have missed it if it was talked about further after the initial leak.

    No sign of shipping, and it still says arriving tomarrow by 10pm

    Now amazon has pulled miracles before, and i have had things charged, ship, and delivered in a span of 10 hours, however my gut feeling, says its going to be pushed back

    Anyways, my wreckers springer is currently out for delivery, so if my bugs dont ship, i have him to look forward to...

    Not buying that many figures this year so I'm not all that pressed about the few preorders I have that got bumped up sooner...

    It's the goofy sh!t like the Chopshop set that was supposed to arrive tomorrow that's now being pushed back to Primus knows when.

    There's no crime in complaining about a businesses faults, especially when they practically beg you for your feedback via a survey after every order....

    These bugs are showing some early signs of being an underproduced and hard to get piece. I would love to be wrong about that. I am certainly not wishing that on anyone, but I had the funniest feeling that might happen with this set. I am feeling lucky to already have them in hand especially considering I had a payment issue and the amazon rep tried to get me to cancel and reorder. NOPE! Not only did I get the problem fixed, they shipped them out same day. Good luck to all who are waiting on these guys.

    Same... My order was initially "preparing for shipment" and there was a pending charge on my account. I too got the delay for July 3rd, yet the pending charge will likely remain for a few days unless it actually ships. Hm.
