    Hopefully they will use those 500 to fulfill the pending European Amazon preorders first... Mine being among them. I preordered back in September and was given several ETAs since then, all of which came and went.

    Yes he is and I'm lucky i bought the skywarp set with him and couple of others in the package. I seen on Amazon that people (well their sellers) are selling that set for over $200 and i just can't believe that.

    I hope I didn't come across as entitled or something, but as far as I'm concerned, people in the US who dragged their feet until Skywarp was out of stock have no-one but themselves to blame. Meanwhile, people in Europe who preordered the set as soon as it became available for preorder have every right to be pissed because Amazon never actually got it in stock to this very day. So I hope you can understand why I think we deserve being prioritized over those who had just hoped for a good Black Friday deal.

    That's totally understandable, however from the sound of things it seems like the issue is more on hasbro for not supplying enough, my guess is that's what is probably taking so long for it to come out, that being the order fulfillment and accommodating the demand for the figure

    I agree with Nevermore. I’m in the US and preordered on day one. If you really want something, especially an exclusive, preorder it. You only have yourself to blame if you miss out. Skywarp was available for months in preorder and even for a couple months after release.

    I think we can all relate to this on some level. If it comes in stock here again and they still haven't shipped yours, let us know.

    You guys are right, I'll have to remember to consult with you all when I'm deciding what to purchase and when

    The only reason I didn't resort to any other sources until it was too late was because Amazon kept promising me new release dates, and the preorder price was way too good to just throw away, and there were other toys I prioritized during those months. I mean, just 41 Euros with free shipping? Worth the wait, I thought. I had already missed out once when I preordereed Omega Supreme, then Amazon canceled my preorder, then relisted him, got him in stock, and then I kept waiting until Black Friday, and all of a sudden he was out of stock. (Fortunately I still managed to get him from Archonia, though at 20 Euros more.) I didn't want to take that risk again... turns out this time it was again the wrong choice.

    My Siege Ratbat/Rumble team arrival date window changed to Jan 29-30. Still unavailable to order on their page otherwise.

    Mine arrived yesterday. Unfortunately it was actually the Battle Squad in the box and not Frenzy/Ratbat.
    Amazon got an earful from me.

    I got mine today. Luckily it is Ratbat and Rumble. So happy that I don't have to hunt them down.

    Of course with my luck the new leaked "pack" will the the four of them all together and easy to find.

    Generations Selects aren't re-releases. They'll be redecos at the very least, possibly slight remolds.

    Oh that makes me feel better. Seriously, it always seems that once I buy something it comes out in a box set or goes on sale after. The ones I wait for disappear and go up in price. But that's normal for collecting.
