    So, it seems Bluestreak and Soundblaster have shipped. Prime and Megatron still have the delivery date of today, lol.

    This same kind of thing (the processing and shipping of some orders that were made much later than others) happened with the G1 Vintage reissues when they went up on the site. At the time, someone that ordered a Bumblebee just "yesterday" (with "yesterday" being weeks after the preorders went up) had their order shipped within a day while others who preordered on Day One didn't.

    That was actually much worse - seemingly random cancellations, delays, damaged items, fluctuating prices.

    While they seems to be handling this better(?) ("better" seems to be a strong word, here), Walmart still needs to get its act together.

    I sent an email about megatron. They said still checking for inventory and will ship in 10 days. Not sure if I believe them.

    That was similar to how their Marvel Legends Loki/Corvus 2 pack played out. Plus, people were being hit with a hold/funds check charge Every.Single.Day.
    The charge would take a few days to fall off, so people were getting hundreds of dollars charged to the credit cards. Those that used debit cards were fighting with Walmart and their banks to get charges reversed. I'm not sure if anybody ever managed to get thier initial preorders.

    Same like a lot of people. My bank shows “debit hold” on Bluestreak, and so far still set to pick up after 6...

    Fingers crossed.

    So since my stuff still hadnt moved past the processing and the charges removed from my bank and money refunded i thought id email cs first then call later after they reply. Actually got a response fairly quick. Here is what it said. Not sure they really answered my questions but at least they shipped 1 bluestreak.

    that sucks. Curious, did you pre-order Soundblaster at 29.99 or 39.99?

    Most likely they won't cancel your order, it's probably just delayed.

    If they don't put in/or have a new placeholder ship date, all hell will probably break loose and your order will get cancelled and/or get hit with multiple pre auths for an out of stock item.

    My Streak and Soundblaster shipped from Florida and are scheduled to arrive four days after today when they should have been ready to be picked up. No movement on Prime or Megatron.

    Bluestreak and Soundblaster just shipped from Florida (I'm in Texas) and still show as being ready for pickup in 4 hours. :rolleyes: 

    OP and Megatron are still showing as "preparing." Who knows when those will actually ship.

    That's odd you're in Texas and Bluestreak is coming from Florida. Mine is coming from Ft. Worth Texas.
