    Same here (Sep 27- Oct 9) If it makes anyone feel any better, My Amazon Dirge/Ramjet was delayed from mid August to "Aug 30-Sept 5", then showed up at my door on Aug. 25th. So there's a chance they could arrive earlier than Amazon's estimate.

    Seriously though, Amazon should just quit putting hard dates on toy pre-orders. It makes 'em look dumb next to online shops with noncommittal "Sometime in September, not guaranteed" ship dates. :)

    To their defense, they're only using the dates the suppliers give them. Each item starts a countdown from the pre-order date and goes from there. If they don't get the stuff in by the original pre-order date, they need to change it on their end.

    I'm not all that shocked about Amazon screwing up my 2 orders that were suppose to be delivered today by 8pm. Sometimes I count on it...

    The Amazon rep offered me -$10.00 but the Sup gave me -$25.

    Yargh... Still no movement on my Quintesson. I know they'll want me to reconfirm it for a later date. They have until 3:00 AM my time for it to be "tomorrow", so I mean...they could move it fast, but I have a huge amount of doubt. Enough to sink a ship. If they're going to ask me to delay, just go ahead and send the dang email. This is getting stupid.

    My two Allicons arrived today, and my Airwave got a ship date assigned of 10/4/2020. Still nothing on Smokescreen.

    U have to put it on the correct piece. The red face only fits into one of the grey pieces. But the green face does fit on both. So the 2 grey spots that are open I believe the green one goes on the first gray one from the left and the red goes on the 2nd one.

    Allicon SAYS its supposed to be here today, but after sitting in Miami for 24 hours, it finally left Miami at 5AM this morning, so likely not coming today. Still no date for Arcee or Smokescreen, and I ordered them the same day the preorders went live.

    "Today by 8 PM" and it hasn't even shipped. LOL.

    What, using a trebuchet to chuck it my way? Geez.

    That's what happened to my coneheads. They were supposed to be here on the 31st. Current status: "We will email you when we have an estimated delivery date."

    Ugh. That's bad enough, but having to wait to the last minute? That sucks.

    I placed a preorder for Wave 2 and the Quintesson Judge with BBTS where it's still showing an ETA of September. I'll go with whichever is fulfilled first and cancel the other.

    I received Earthrise Megatron a week ago and the Coneheads within a day of release.

    Saw everyone who was sad to receive their Coneheads 2 pack with no external box. Found this guy on my porch (next to a busy street) last night. Thanks Amazon and UPS.

    Contacted Amazon about my Allicon being delayed as it said it was supposed to arrive today, but sat in Florida for 24 hours after shipping. Guy said he "sent an expedite notice" or something like that, and it may arrive before 10PM tonight. But as I got off chat with him, I noticed at 2PM exactly (which is during the time I was talking to him, it was changed to "were sorry, this is running late. Now expected 9/5-9/6"

    I've had a preorder with BBTS for wave 2 deluxe since the link first went live and said July, each month they push back the date until they actually have it, I hope they get it in September but it could be October or December, if you dont mind when you get it, this type of thing is no big deal

    Holy shit are they still pulling this shit? I saw a bunch of Fort Maxes show up like that and it's fucking ridiculous that it still happens.
