    My preorder shipped from their Texas warehouse a few days ago, and itll be here by Wednesday from UPS. Any extras they have will be in stores or go to website inventory.

    I just ordered one from TCP. No gamestops near me anymore. Last time I ordered a TF from their website, they royally effed up the figure's box putting it in the shipper box. Glad he's finally getting out there.

    I just didn't trust that gamestop was actually going to meet the release date on their site, so I went with TCP. If it helps avoid something like what GS did to you, even better.

    Yeah. The only way I'll order a TF from them again is if it's something only exclusive to them. Other than that I'm done.
    I had a few items in my stash already. TFxUniversal Draculus, GS Toy Galvatron, & RH Airwolf. So Artfire is in some good company.

    Give Gamestop another try. Since Ryan Cohen took over the board (and drained the swamp), the company is a lot better. Cohen is known for having found Chewy.com, with an emphasis on customer service.

    No joke, Gamestop customer service is amazing now. Best in class is their goal, so I think they're a lot safer to order from. They also expanded shipping by opening up additional warehouses (ur orders get to u waaaay faster now!).

    Finally, they are selling more stuff: hard to find figures @ Gamestop, and some awesome finds on their site. Plus, excellent sales (which I cant find @ Target or Walmart).

    Definitely this! The very store I found that Artfire used to be poorly run and had crap selection. But after this year they have greatly improved and carry way more stuff than they used to. It's also cool they carry the Selects. I also bought Transmutate from that same store as well a few months back.

    But more than that, it's now a cool place to scratch the collectors itch. Besides this Gamestop, locally all we have is Walmart that has a poorly run toy department. We used to have a store called Hastings that sold collector stuff but it went belly up years ago. So it's nice to finally have a proper run Gamestop to fill the void. :)

    I would love to be able to find this since my Hasbro Pulse pre order I\'ve had for months got pushed back to January. After reading article yesterday I did go to one GaneStop close to me. They didn\'t have it, but oddly they did have the Galactic Odyssey Micromaster set...

    They did an inventory search of the area, no store within 100 miles had it, basically they said just keep checking back.

    Thank you for the heads up about TCP. Unfortunately it looks as though they are out of stock. Also it probably would have been More $$ as it is $2 more than my pulse pre order, and because my pulse order was multiple items exceeding $50, I got free shipping.

    GameStop would work because they are charging the same amount as Pulse ($34.99 when I initially pre ordered). Buying it directly equates to "free shipping". Otherwise, if I can't find it in store at a game stop, I will just wait for my pulse order to ship. I don't think I could get a better deal online, getting that single item shipped to me for less than $35.

    I'm guessing Hasbro's decision to put line-art on the outer box for Selects is partially to make them a more appealing product for physical retailers. Right now it's a brown box with a label. Great for e-shops where they put up pics with the listing, but not so much places like Gamestop or overseas.

    I saw a selects G2 Ramjet at gamestop in grand rapids, mi yesterday. I was pretty surprised, but this appears to be a thing now.

    Btw, this is my first post, just joined. Thanks for letting me into the community. Long time fan, but only just really got the transformers bug with combiner wars and I've pretty much been a completist ever since. Looking forward to many great conversations.

    Also, there’s a decent chance we’ll get a SS86 mold of Stepper as a selects or exclusive somewhere. Probably with his Targetmaster if Artfire and Jackpot are any indication.

    My United Stepper is still my go-to Stepper. The CW one is with my CW guys and if we ever get enough toys to build it, I’d use him for a IDW2 Wreckers display.
