    You did. Same thing happened with the previous exclusives Amazon released.

    As a reminder everyone, Greenlight is available to preorder again through the wishlist trick. I quoted Jtprime17's post so you'd all have the link handy.

    Stupid question here - is Greenlight an Amazon exclusive or will she be available at BBTS, Pulse, etc. at some point?

    I'm just trying to find out if I can avoid Amazon and their bubble mailer shipping method by ordering from someone else.

    At this point we don't know. If you want one, pre-ordering via Amazon would be the best way to make sure you *get one* and then if another e-tailer comes out with a listing between now and July 1 then you can cancel and swap to that if you'd prefer.

    I checked and it says the items will come in Amazon gift wrap if you mark them as gifts. There's no mention or option to get them shipped in more secure packaging. If my Siege Jetfire and Omega come all screwed up I'm going to be pissed. "Frustration Free" packaging should NOT be the default method. The hell?

    I ordered Greenlight with Siege Mirage and Impactor to get free shipping... Says arriving Sept 6 for the whole shebang. o_O 

    Hope that doesn't increase the odds of getting my order for Greenlight canceled or something rather. :confused:

    Did you try homey's instructions?
    Worked for me yesterday. It's a little funky, but only way it seems to make the preorder go through.

    Feels like an unnecessarily complicated process to buy a toy. Does anyone have any idea why Amazon is being weird about this?

    Basically, they've started adding pre-orderable stock to their inventory, but they haven't put the item page back up (they might be waiting to put it up on a specific date). This technique of adding the item to a wishlist using the old listing info and ordering it from there is likely an oversight on their part.
