    So selecting gift option at checkout page would be a better choice... huh... gonna try next time.
    I ordered Ironhide/Prowl two days earlier than you do... haven’t heard from them yet.

    This came to me from Amazon yesterday. They jammed it into a box that was just too small. So YMMV.

    My Sunstreaker is set to deliver today.
    Yay!
    Of course, it hasn't shipped yet, so...

    I ordered Sunstreaker and Trailbreaker while on back order and both arrived weeks earlier than Amazon predicted. I feel confident enough.

    I wonder if a call to customer service just prior to shipment would help? Like tell them to please use a larger box and not an envelope? I've never tried it and I dont know how connected CS is to the warehouse. Its definitely not consistent with anyone lately. Target is pretty good with packing and using oversized boxes, but some things I've gotten from them were already banged up prior to shipment I think.

    I'd order a Runamuck, think he's pretty cool looking - but the fact that I'll probably never get his buddy (difficulty/cost) just makes me not even want to bother. Retail exclusives suck.

    Same thing as the clones, can't get the Decepticon team without paying a bunch of cash so no point getting the Autobot one.

    I'm too OCD to not have them together.

    Target exclusives are generally easy to get at retail. In many cases they may even end up in the clearance section.
    I've seen the Decepticon Clones numerous times now, and they were on clearance a short time back. They're back to normal price now, which is weird.
    The Seeker two-pack has been shelf-warming in some places and just recently started getting scarce.
    Thrust and Runabout really shouldn't be all that difficult to find, as they're shipping in case quantities similar to Studio Series Leadfoot.

    Retail cs and logistics have zero contact with fulfillment centers, local stations, or drivers.

    Essentially all we can do is leave shipment notes for drivers if you contact us post shipping.

    While I agree with you about them being easy to obtain in the US:

    Wait, there's a world outside of the US?

    Yeah, I should have looked at that.

    I got my Autobot Clones today, came in a bubble mailer but the box wasn't damaged at all, quite pleased with that.

    Is target not very widespread in NZ? I didn't see any on the Gold Coast of Oz but I did in Melbourne but, yeah, that's Australia. Not managed to get to NZ yet.
