    picked up in store for $80, cancelled preorder right before all the delayed news started coming. had a feeling something could go wrong, so didn't chance it.

    also I would have voted option #5 if I didn't click #2 already :lol

    Canceled to pay for other wants. I still want it, though.

    I have two on order. Just going to wait.

    I also regularly make piles of loot stacking up on bigbadtoystore all the time. So I'm just used to waiting a few months between ordering and play.
    Hasbro is likely under pressure to fill the shipment.

    But I'm confident its just a matter of the holiday season to push things into Maximum Overdrive.

    Never wanted MP-10, and never preordered it, since I'm perfectly happy with MP-01. Damn you, scalpers!!

    I voted option 5, in case it's not obvious

    This poll needs a "Yes, I have one, but I'm also looking for it in stores so that I can cancel it" option.

    If the Magnus rumors are true, I might just hold out for that.

    Sometimes I wish we could upvote on this board, lol.

    Anyway, I'm waiting it out because getting to a TRU is a PITA for me.

    Yes, and I'm waiting right now. If I do happen to find it in store I'll probably buy it, and cancel the online order.

    I have one. Going to wait it out. Not something I need to have to survive or anything.

    I missed the pre-order. Even with all the crap going on, I'd order it right now from TRU.com if it came up.

    No option for "No, I waited until it showed up in the store"?

    i missed the pre-order but found one on the shelf a couple of weeks ago. stopped at the beginning of the week and one of the assistants told me they sold 4 that morning to the same guy about 30 seconds after the store opened. option #5 is classic btw.
