    My Soundblaster shipped last night around 10PM and arrived about an hour ago. Crazy fast. I’m in Washington State for those interested.

    Oof. I'm in Oregon.

    Pre-ordered July 18.

    No movement. :confused: 

    Like they are punishing me because I locked in the pre-order for $30 instead of $39.99. :p 

    Guess I'll check my CC if they pre-auth'd / charged.

    Uh-oh. Are they doing that thing where the people who most recently pre-ordered it are getting it and everyone who ordered it right when it went live get screwed? 'Cause that's happened before.

    Yeah, I pre-ordered immediately when they went up, and while I've been charged I haven't seen any movement or received any communication regarding when to expect the items. We'll see what happens.

    I didn't even order Prime or Megatron. I had no desire for the cell shaded figures. And after seeing earth Leader Prime I am glad I didn't. But I have 2x Bluestreaks, and 2x Soundblasters ordered, paid...but my bar has been the same way since it was pre-ordered months ago. So it kind of ticks me off when people order this week and already have the order in hand. I work in a distribution warehouse. We deal in formal wear. Funny how we do things...we do it by when the order comes in, style, size, and color available. All those orders put in week of get printed on different order color tickets and take a backseat to those who ordered in advance. And since this is all the same product...you would think distributors like Amazon, Walmart, bbts, tfsource....they would actually follow the same model as us. But what do I know...we are just one of the top 3 retailers in tuxedo rentals east of the Mississippi.

    Nononono, stop it. You're trying to give SOME semblance of logic-- even twisted logic-- to this process. For example, for some reason about a month ago even though I ordered all four of the 35th anniversary exclusives at once my Soundblaster was moved to another shipment in my order. With no explanation. This is all utterly random. We are at the mercy of the bits and bytes of Walmart.com.

    I am now 90% convinced that when Walmart starting taking preorders however many years ago, at their headquarters they bought a server and a couple of computers, hooked them up, turned them on (without doing anything else to the computers), and then before leaving the employees prostrated themselves before the glowing blue screens and said,

    "Oh, magic future boxes, we implore you! Please take preorders for our products and ship them out!"

    And then they laid an offering of 2 semiconductors, a $100 Walmart gift card, and a 25% off coupon for Head and Shoulders at the foot of the server and left, locking the door behind them.

    That door has not been opened since.

    Ooh, they just split the order in half and the Bluestreak/Soundblaster half has a slightly longer status bar than the Optimus/Megatron half.

    At least that's progress, I guess.

    Soundblaster was put on backorder.

    I called their customer service and they say they'll be shipped out tomorrow and delivered tomorrow. Needless to say they put an attachment on my order saying not to cancel either of them if they aren't delivered tomorrow as customer wants/needs them. No guarantee they won't be canceled tomorrow though but considering my luck they'll be canceled...

    Well, time to start browsing eBay for either Siege or Universe 2.0 Bluestreak; with a new Grapple coming out I need to get Bluestreak & Ratchet so I can be finished with my Season 1 & 2 Autobots next year before I go cold turkey on collecting.

    Didn't get any emails from Walmart, but checked my orders and Bluestreak shipped! :D 

    Hoping Soundblaster will have a live track shipment button soon. :) 

    Thinking 35th Megatron and Optimus will indeed be delayed until November even though the arrive date says Oct 8.
