Heck I'm hoping no exclusives at all!
That's what bothers me the most. I see a TON of the Ironhide/Prowl sets on eBay going for crazy money. I know there's nothing Amazon can do, but these people ordering the sets just to resell them is quite frustrating. If I new my set was going to be delayed I would've hopped on whatever Fan First event Hasbro was doing and complain. Gotta make a little noise if you want some change.
CMD? I ordered Hot Rod from a seller in Champlain NY, hopefully, have it tomorrow. They did have Scourge too but I wanted to meditate and reflect on if I wanted to pay that much, it sold.
CMDstore your one stop shop for all your action figure, toys & statue
Yeah, I’m pretty sure we ordered from the same entity, as mine too shipped out of Champlain. But apparently CMD Store has been around for a bit.
Same store. They also sell on eBay under the seller name ddmark.
Found all our lost orders. (reddit)
Not to gloat but my AA Set is still holding to be delivered Jan 6th for now...
My Autobot alliance set was cancelled, great. Thanks a lot Amazon.
My AA sets are also still pending, not cancelled yet, and I did the "your approval is needed..." thing several weeks ago. Could be a good sign?
ugh, sorry to hear that. Did you ever get a delay approval email or did they skip straight to cancelling it?
my medic sets arrived yesterday
My Medic set arrived. In a large padded box. Intact. Again, I ordered on the 24th probably about 35 minutes after the P/O went up. I think I just need to play the lottery. I am eternally sorry for anyone that got chumped by Amazon. On any set.
You and me both, mine got delivered today
My AA set got pushed back, but my card got charged for the balance I had to pay on it after a giftcard.
After my medics got canceled I'm not sure if this should make me hopeful or if it is just a result of the order being resubmitted.
You mean the approval thing that made the new arrival dats December 16th and January 6th?
Got the medics in today.
It's absolutely on Amazon and it's not something exclusive to TFs either. This limited edition kaiju Blu-ray set was offered for pre-order by Amazon from about February right up until its release date in August. People ordered and assumed they would be okay on acquiring one. What Amazon did not pay attention to was the fact that Arrow (the company making the set) only told them they would have so many copies (there's only about 3000 in existence) but Amazon still allowed for pre-orders to be placed despite that. So when release day came, some people got theirs no problem but then others got the dreaded "Arriving Today but not shipped" message and so on. Most got cancelled. Even now Amazon is essentially lying to people by offering it with the "we're working hard to get it back in stock". They aren't going to. Arrow said that the set is not being reprinted.
So yes, it is on Amazon for continuing to allow orders to be made well beyond the stock they're acquiring.
Gigawatt came yesterday, it wasn't even in a bubble envelope it was basically just and I plastic envelope and the box was smashed to s***, which made me mad because it's one of the few things I planned to display in box. Fortunately the actual front of the box wasn't really messed up so I smashed it back into a box shape and I am just displaying it like that. If I see one in a store I will buy it and swap it out with my smash one. I'm sure somebody getting this plans to open it, and that person can buy my smashed box just like I buy smashed boxes for figures I plan to open and leave the pristine boxes behind for some other collector
Just got an email, that due to stock issues I couldn't get a digimon figure set I ordered for my daughter. I ordered them like back in March, FOR DECEMBER release. They cancelled my pre-order due to stock issues in the summer. In October they went back up for pre-order for DECEMBER again. Just got my email it was cancelled again.
I really, really hope that happens. It will be bad enough if my order with Amazon UK for the Coneheads doesn't go through - I would love to have them, but I know it's probably a long shot. But Ironhide and Prowl? They're two of the most important G1 characters as far as I'm concerned. It would be awfully sucky not to get them.
No delay on mine since the one back in November. Still December 16 to January 6, but at this point I'm not confident in that date range and will just be glad if they come eventually.
Amazon gave me the option to approve delay for Ironhide/Prowl via email notice today. Hell yes I approved it.
Wish they did that for Ratchet and Lifeline.
