    I don't know how they determine who gets their items shipped first, but I got my AA pack Nov 3rd. Maybe some combination of location, account length, prime membership, average money spent on Amazon? Who knows.

    So, an update on mine (9/3): Before work last night, it said it shipped, estimated 12/23. Get home this morning, it's sitting on the porch. So, don't give up hope!

    For people who don't have prime did your Ironhide pack ship?

    Yes. I got my second last week. But I think we should stop repeating the same questions, and just come to the realization that there’s really no rhyme or reason to how Amazon decides who gets their preorder first. Your chances are significantly higher if you’re one of the first, but other than that it’s random. Just gotta hope everyone gets theirs eventually.

    Prime gets prioritized. However, October was definitely late to order. I ordered ours on July 17th and arrived Nov 1st.

    I got my two Paleotrex today. Definitely a lot of fun to build new monsters out of.

    I suppose it's appropriate for my Autobot Alliance set to have a few wandering adventures before it gets to my house. Leave and come back to the same facility. Kill a cyclops. Meet a few sirens. Turn into a pig.

    Pretty sure that was Odysseus' crew, and yes, as I recall a few did change and had to be left behind.

    Not sure that's been proven.

    Odysseus made her turn them back. He then spent a year on her island. And we wonder why it took so long for him to get home.

    It's been very obvious Prime subscribers get prioritized. I used to go without Prime for the longest time until this year due to how bad USPS has gotten. I'm no longer delayed several days / week for in stock orders. I can pre-order pretty late now and get stuff on release date ahead of non-Prime users. The difference is huge and noticeable right after I signed on.

    Combiner Wars Devastator is up for preorder (thanks Patriot Prime for the head's up on his channel's post) with a January 15th release date. I missed out on the first release so I'm pretty stoked I have another chance. I can't wait to get him in October of 2021.

    Whoa. My Autobot Alliance actually shipped ! It says arriving tomorrow, but seeing as how it's shipping parcel select and it's two days before Christmas, I think that's highly unlikely. But hey, I'm very happy that they're on their way now. Here's hoping they survive the trip. :)

    I got my Autobot Alliance set yesterday. Is Prowl supposed to have shoulder missiles? I didn’t see any in the packaging.

    My Autobot Alliance set finally shipped. Supposed to arrive on Monday. Despite me having Prime, but I think with holiday plus delays its reasonable.

    Also... The Conehead seeker set was back in stock for a second... Just missed it.

    Prowl doesn't come with shoulder missiles.

    I have Prime, order for Ironhide/Prowl was placed on Aug 17, approved the order delay a while back, and my order has had no movement with a "Not yet shipped. We will email you when we have an estimated delivery date."

    The same situation applies to a Ramjet/Dirge set ordered through Amazon Global Store UK on Sep 23.
