    I've taken a new position on preorders. Just buy it, you can always return it. Seems like Hasbro is making it more difficult to buy stuff, especially the exclusives.

    I took that same position years ago. Too much missing stuff and regretting it later. Return policies these days are pretty decent, and honestly, sometimes board members here want it so it's really a no-lose situation.

    My cell shaded megatron order status changed to delayed. No email sent though.

    Mine still saying preparing, but that pink bar has gone up a tick. Not entirely sure what's happening with that, but I suspect it'll change to delayed soon.

    Well, they actually sent Bluestreak and Soundblaster, and they came in today! Opened them up, and it took me a second to realize why Soundblaster didn’t quite look right...

    Goddammit, Hasbro. Here’s hoping for a Soundblaster restock, so I can exchange. Ugh.

    Yep, missing right out of the box. It’s a bummer, but for shelf purposes, it’s definitely not a huge issue. I’d still prefer to have a complete one, though.

    Well, I see I'm not the only one dealing with this special sort of nonsense right now.
    What's weird is that the figure was still in stock for another day or two after I bought it, yet I'm still stuck with this "delay" after a solid week.

    Has anybody who got this message actually got theirs yet by now?

    I was finally able to pick up Blue and Soundblaster today! These boxes have a great matte finish which looks nice. I haven't opened either figure yet because Smokescreen also arrived today from Hasbro Pulse, and he and Prowl are having too much fun.

    Just got off the phone with Walmart customer service. Even though Bluestreak was in stock for another day after I placed the order, they apparently ran out before they could ship mine out, so now the order's been forced into back order till they restock.

    (Dumb question incoming, but... do they ever restock on Selects figures? I need to know whether I'm totally screwed for missing out on the first batch... o_O )
