    Yeah seems to be a common thing. The elbow hinges and weapon ports on mine are a little loose as well.

    Yup. And they have a habit of popping out if you flex them the wrong way. They are an absolute bitch to get back in too. Speaking from heavy handed experience.

    Alright, good to know. I haven't had problems with ports or popping, but I've just had minimal playtime so I'm sure I'll find something at somepoint. thanks!

    Going by the definition I found, he seems to think you’re entitled and demanding too much from Walmart.
    I don’t agree. If they could actually make the smallest effort here, there wouldn’t be a problem. It doesn’t seem as if Walmart is the victim here.

    Walmart.com allegedly has the Allicon in stock and I wanted to add something to an order I was building that wasn't too heavy and would get me to the free shipping threshold, so I decided I'd give it a try. It will be interesting to see if that is what actually comes. :)

    Just saying, you can order from Amazon and you won't be playing the lottery... Got two Allicons delivered yesterday at a slightly discounted price of $17 and change.

    That does kind of seem like the lottery though. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

    Thanks. Walmart is terrible bar none. You can spend hours with customer service but i am convinced nobody cares about an adult ranting about toys. I do believe that when they see the amount of courtesy codes being sent out due to this then it might prompt them to make changes. I do wonder how much more help the American CS counterpart can provide.

    I think they do help more because at least their emphatic and care vs someone who's doing it for a buck...

    Well, I had hope after I actually got my 2 Arcee’s last week. Apparently I ordered ER Hoist and 2 Siege Refraktors instead of an Allicon and 2 Bluestreaks. Fuck Walmart. One of those Bluestreaks was supposed to be a birthday present.

    48 hours have passed with no reaction whatsoever from Walmart.

    I did chat again. this person asked if I wanted a replacement. Allicon shows as in stock right now so I said yes.
    They immediately processed a replacement and left the chat before I could ask what to do with the wrong item.
    I did get an email already noting a replacement order, but the way it's worded makes me feel like I'm gonna get charged for it again.
    They still didn't ask for proof.

    Meanwhile, I wonder what I'll get this time.

    Incidentally, I found this in the Returns FAQ about wrong items from online (see attached screenshot) noting you have to return it by mail, not to the store

    ^ It's real! The last 4 figures weren't even Transformers! WTF!?!

    ... I might try these oils though. They smell nice.

    Goddammit Walmart, get your shit together. I don't want to cancel the rest of my ER and Kingdom pre-orders.

    I admire your bravery in preordering from there. I’d go put a preorder in on Amazon though. Prices on some of the deluxes have already dropped there.
