    Impactor's legs look more of a green than yellow. Odd choice of color.

    Huh...yeah my Elita was cancelled as well. I was early on the orders and also got a Bee and Soundwave. Hope those 2 hold out, along with my Marvel Legends Cable.
    Weird Elita got cancelled, she was up for hours after I preordered her I thought.

    No cancellations yet on my BB or Elita Order. Paid via paypal, and ordered sometime in the 1st hour or so they were up. Didnt order anything else (wanted Soundwave but was already sold out)

    I personally wouldn't care if they cancelled my Elita. But if they're having problems with HER, how can they not be having problems fulfilling Bee and Soundwave? Maybe Soundwave will be somewhat safe since they stopped taking pre-orders SO early on him. I expect Elita to be VERY easy to find on shelves when the wave starts hitting.

    So it seems like Elita is the only one being canceled. I wonder if they thought she would be double-packed if the cases and wasn't, so now they have to cut orders in half.

    Also, my Elita got canceled but it still shows free shipping.

    As long as Bumblebee isn't canceled I can survive. I'll find Elita in store or buy online and even if she were 100% canceled I am one of those few that LIKE the Combiner Wars Elita.

    Knock on wood, but my Elita-1 preorder is still good.

    Of course, that doesn't mean much.

    Only wanted her and Soundwave.

    Don't. Don't try to apply logic to Walmart.com's ordering system. You'll drive yourself crazy.

    Just adding to the “my Elita got cancelled” pile. Was definitely surprised.

    Got the alert and once I seen it was an cancellation email I was sure it was for my retro Stormshadow. Caught that on a random late restock. Lol.

    Walmart is weird.

    I pre-ordered the whole wave 2 set at 11:04 est. Elita has been cancelled.

    I placed a second pre order with just bee and elita at 11:28. That order is still untouched (for now)

    I haven't received a cancellation yet, but I completely expect that it will suffer the same fate as all of you
    As an simple cart pusher of the dreaded Mart of Walls, I HAD to fix this for you.

    I think one of three things happened:

    1) This is a glitch and every Elita will be canceled

    2) They thought Elita was double packed and she wasn't

    3) Elita has been delayed so they are canceling orders.


    Considering that it looks like she is on the poster for Kingdom AND Takara announced they are making her I'm not too concerned about finding her somehow.

    But man, Wal-Mart will be in serious trouble if they do this with Bee or Soundwave later on.

    Yep. Elita-1 canceled. And I wasted 10minutes of my life in a useless chat with customer service.

    On an organizational and certainly a website level I agree with you, but individual Wal-Marts can actually be pretty good (they usually aren't but they CAN be). There's a Wal-Mart about a 45-minute drive from me that is fantastic about keeping up with its stock, at least for the size categories it carries.

    (And no I'm not saying where it is. This is one of the few good Wal-Marts and its TF stock is mine, do you hear me, MINE! It was the only reason I was able to grab Wave 1 of the Netflix toys for non-scalper prices.)

    The idiocy of the many outweighs the idiocy of the few. And I'm talking in general. Not just stock stuff. I can give PLENTY of examples.

    45 minutes for me and two of them but with things like that I have enough patience to complain until they give me something (which they did as compensation) and I was playing Mario Maker while waiting for them to reply with their copy and paste answers (Even got the manager to whine "I'm not copying and pasting!" just before he copy and pasted a response the previous person said)

    So far I still have my Elita pre-order but I ordered really early, around 10:30 I think. Maybe I'm ok but just waiting for that show to drop.

    At least we have confirmation of Takara releasing these. I didn't know WalMart hasn't actually freaking shipped wave 1 yet if you ordered online (although from what I've gathered from collectors in other circles, that's happening a lot - see Real Ghost Busters, which showed up in stores months ago but did eventually start shipping out figures, just not all at once).. So learning that after the fact has me annoyed and worried about these wave 2 orders. My Elita-1 isn't cancelled yet but I'm thinking of just ordering Takara's version regardless, eating any higher cost, and just cancelling this WalMart one myself once I secure that. Because at least I know I'll be getting it for sure that way.

    Have no idea why, but my Elita & BB preordered has not been cancelled yet.

    Repeating (even though I have yet to see a pattern), I paid via paypal and ordered sometime in the first hour of the pre-orders.

    Mine are still good too, paid by cc within minutes of the listings being available (before you could tell what was what)
