    Just saw that WW and HB got shipped out together too. Now I can relax my sphincter. After missing out on ordering Wave 1 of the Headmasters and getting so many Walmart orders cancelled, it’s nice to finally have an anticipated order come through. Time to relax and savor the moment.

    Got Skullcruncher and Weirdwolf today. Strangely enough, they came in separate "Amazon make your own boxes" even though they were part of the same order.

    This should be good.

    I preordered three Weirdwolfs back in December because I wanted at least one that wasn't smashed. This was before I discovered IdiotMart will still ship this stuff in bags mo matter how big or how many. So they proceed to lay around for two or three months while everywhere except my area gets piles and piles in stores. Now they decide they're finally going to ship my preorder...and they've only shipped one. Guaranteed it's coming in a bag and smashed to pieces. Looks like I'll be mailing back all three eventually.

    I haven't gotten any toys in bags, all boxed. Maybe this is a regional thing or a new shipping issue.

    I would complain on the phone, maybe they let you keep them with a heavy discount.

    I preordered with a discount and bought them in the store anyway. (bit of a hoarder here)

    Not a new issue, sadly, but wouldn't be surprised if it was regional.

    I had my DeLoreans shipped two to a bag. Arrive smashed. Filed for a replacement, explicitly stating they were smashed due to shipping in a bag, and got two more shipped in bags.
    I had four retro GI Joes figures ordered. All shipped separately (because reasons) and the two in bags were smashed.
    I had four more retro GI Joe figures ordered. Each one arrived in a separate bag, from the same warehouse on the same day, and three were smashed beyond recognition.
    Order two normal McFarlane Wonder Woman figures (gold wings version is a separate listing/UPC) and they send one of each variant.
    Of course, then you order two MOTU Origins Teelas and they ship in a box the size of a spare tire with one of them bent so badly it looks like they tried to fit it in a letter envelope first.

    I just stopped preordering anything there because of this stupidity. Not sure if they're worse than "silently cancel everything just because" Target.

    Not Transformers but GI Joe. Last year I ordered an unnamed Gzi joe retro figure from Walmart.com. I picked it up from Fed ex and it came in a bag. I infuriating part was it wax the Jada die cast figures. Yeah I took it back. I mean the Jada figure pack was 7-9 bucks the Retros are 12.96. What a screw up.

    That's a 3rd party seller selling at scalper prices. When Walmart sells out, their listing will be on top. I don't follow MOTU but I know Castle grayskull is rare. I bet people will buy it even at $200.

    Nope...I don't like the new line well enough to pay $74 for it...as a kid though I loved the MOTU line and had all those...but as I got older I stuck with the more articulated figures like transformers and joes.

    And you'd be surprised how many will be folks that were wringing their hands at $75 and wouldn't touch it at $85 from specialty retailers.

    Yeah. Apparently most people don't cross shop and just assume Amazon is cheapest. Or maybe they don't care because they can get it in 2 days.

    Walmart does crazy clearance sales if something sits too long. Like $1500 laptops they sell for $300 or G1 reissues they discount 90% off. I found some but it's in store only.
