    Yeah I hear you.

    I ordered DOTM Shockwave from TRU.

    This was on saturday the only day I had time to order him.

    It shipped tuesday.

    It was in my state a day or two before arriving (MA).

    They went and sent it to my neighboring state (RI) for no logical reason.

    All turned out well. He now stands behind Megatron on my computer desk.

    Thing is I went to Target a day later. After seeing Captain America and they had him.

    Could have saved a few bucks but, no point bitching over spilt milk.

    Anyway terribly sorry about the rant good luck with MP Hot Rod/Rodimus.

    My MP Rodimus is in a city 40 minutes away since yesterday and not out for delivery today...a little screwed up. My Silver Halo Reach figure was shipped on the same day as MP Rodimus (which was estimated for today,) and has an estimated delivery of...sunday?

    It's called SmartPost. A relatively common way of cheaply delivering packages where UPS/FedEx has paired with USPS to deliver packages.

    The bigger companies have the option to ship with service called ups basic with uses the ups tracking system but alot of the transportation is actually done by USPS....benefit lower cost and better tracking, in theory but generally kind of sucks both ways.
