    Yup, had mine waiting for me when I came home from work. Too bad I won't get to play with him for another couple of hours since I have to run of to PT. But yeah, to alleviate the concerns of those who were worried about the amazon "item comes in packaging that reveals what's inside", this is how it comes:

    Amazon just doesn't want to rebox it since it already comes in a convenient box to ship it in. But like I said, it does say what's inside for all the world to see.

    yeah my skywarp came in excellent condition. collectors grade. him and the other little ones are packed in there tight. the plastic is molded around the figures very well, no chance of anything being jostled around.

    man I want sideswipe/slamdance set now. as much as I dont need it, my "buy now" finger is getting really itchy. :eek:

    If both are shipping together, they should arrive in a somewhat larger Amazon box. Mine did.

    So I'm in a chat with Amazon CS right now. My Alphastrike set still has not shipped but is slated for a Monday delivery. However if you go to the item page, it shows that it's in stock and you can get it by Saturday if you order now. Now I'm not normally one to make a big deal out of a couple days, but that doesn't sit right with me. I've had this preordered since the day it went live and someone who just orders one willy-nilly today could get one before I do. That, and given Amazon's snafu's with overselling preorders, I definitely want to make sure I get mine.

    As soon as I got connected with an agent, they said, "This is a pre-order, and releasing on October 15, 2019." Yep, I can tell this will be a helpful chat.

    Edit: Well I got your basic copy/paste response: "I am sorry for all the inconvenience, it has caused. This item is scheduled for Monday, August 19, 2019, this will not arrive before this date."

    Nevermind the fact that my Skywarp is arriving BEFORE that date and some of y'all already have yours/are getting them tomorrow. But I got $15 out of this.

    Edit 2: Wow this person is dumb. They are convince the Alphastrike set doesn't come out until Oct 15, even though I'm looking at the item page that says it's in stock right now.

    Oh, my mistake, they are talking about items I never even mentioned. Wow, who hires these people?

    Final edit: I honestly feel like my IQ dropped after that chat. I wish I wasn't on my work computer so I could paste that transcript over here. They just did not want to understand what I was even asking about. And in the end, I can still only hope G2 Sideswipe gets here Monday. And the person mentioned giving me a $15 credit twice, so maybe I got $30. Idk how to check to be sure.

    Final edit 2: Alphastrike set just shipped. No, I don't believe in coincidences.

    Mine just shipped to Oregon from Tracy, CA, and a 80th Thor from Lathrop, CA, both arriving Monday with Prime.

    Suprised you're not getting Skywarp tomorrow if you're in Sacramento. :p

    ok. So for some reason, Amazon had my Skywarp was "Preparing for Shipment" And then midway through the day, they changed it back to what it was.

    And I cant blame Amazon on any of this really. I have preordered tons of games and books over the years from amazon to the point where I need a checklist, and Rarely is there ever an issue.

    But whenever I preorder a transformer, there almost always seems to be some kind of hitch here or there. Its Hasbro and their distribution service. Hasbros distribution is lousy. they cant keep release dates unless its Star Wars, and cant provide enough product for any major retail or online chain. Its maddening.

    I derped. :oops: :confused: 
    Fixed it to the 17th. :rolleyes: 

    I had a payment issue that I worked out over the phone. The rep that I talked to assured me that they have sufficient stock so hopefully what happened with my Jetfire won't happen here. Maybe it will get here earlier - we'll see.
