    I saw Red Alert available again but only for premium members like 10 minutes ago. I checked again just now and it appears he sold out again.

    Trying to get this figure is beyond frustrating. Tempted to hit eBay or pre-order through AmiAmi in Japan.

    RED Reformatting Megs finally shipped. Hit the logistical jackpot, he's coming from the Pennsylvania fulfillment center. ETA of Monday.

    IIRC, I think Hasbro themselves said (at least in the case of Blaster) that they weren't going to be taking pre-orders, they'll just put them up for sale as they become available. A few other retailers are reserving Blaster still, and might be able to take preorders for Core Hot Rod and whoever else we're missing.

    Pretty much. They just said that Blaster will be available on 1/1/2022 at brick and mortar. That doesn't mean they won't put Blaster up on their website eventually. I get the sense, and this is just my opinion based on talking with sources and knowing what the global situation is, that Hasbro is doing this to try and give brick and mortar an 'exclusive' after there was so many issues with stocking

    I also think they know people are tired of the dates being way off either early or late and even they are at the mercy of the shipping situation. I bet they're even surprised Blaster is showing up at US retail right now.

    Yep. It makes budgeting hard. It's like you set aside a certain amount and then it's blown out of water when stuff comes 4 or 5 months earlier than listed. But people say don't preorder if you can't buy now. Well it says this date and if you don't preorder now you 95% of time don't get because it sells out and can't get later unless over pay

    Exactly what I think Hasbro is doing with Kingdom wave 5. They say "itll be out when its out, we honestly have little clue with how this last wave was thrown together".

    Sometimes I look at the weight to see what it might be. I got a Tigatron (0.75 lbs) and 2 Sweeps (2.5 lbs) this week, for example!

    Ended up returning the Amazon Tigatron since it came smashed and ripped open, so now relying on the Pulse one buuuut it seems to be stuck in some sort of FedEx hell.. probably staffing issues. Just delivery pending and "in transit" every day since Wednesday from the next town over.

    usps has been having the same issues of late with packages of mine that I’ve been tracking.

    I’m assuming its all due to the the perfect storm of pandemic / labor shortages / holiday influxes

    Woot! Re-Formatting RED Megs came early. And he was packed in a reasonable sized box with a reasonable amount of airbags. "I LOVE YOU PENNSYLVANIA FULFILLMENT CENTER!"

    Ordered Shattered Glass Collection Blurr and Megatron on Wednesday, finally shipped out (or at least the shipping info got sent to FedEx and I got a tracking number) today!

    Edit: it's apparently coming tomorrow!

    Just so I'm clear - you are talking about the regular Kingdom Tigatron coming from Amazon, not the Amazon exclusive Golden Disc orange mutant Tigatron, right?

    Maybe its me, but I still think that's an overpay.
