Actually, simply by writing on this page, you started watching this thread. That's how it is for me, anyway.
Finally! Bumblebee from July 20th preparing to ship!
Both my Swerve orders from the first day they went up were canceled today. Devestator shipped however.
oh my, seeing all these pictures of bad packaging got me worried...i live in PR. Pray for me guys lol
Update: Bee from July 20th has now shipped!
I think it's great that I can't actually find any of the G1 listings through the site itself and have to search "walmart.com G1 character" on Google. I also ordered two Starscreams for the hell of it. I've got the Commemorative and Encore editions so I can just push these back on them if Magilla Gorilla was on fulfillment duty. Sure would be nice if Bumblebee would come back in stock. Or, God forbid, appear at any of the God forsaken no English zones they operate around here.
I couldn't get the order in while all 4 mini bots were in stock. I got my package and it has Devy and three of the minis, no Outback. Bumblebee is listed as sold out but the other two are there. No website listings for Starscream or Hot Rod in Canada. USA site now sold out, but they won't ship to me anyways. I picked up Starscream in store so now I'm just missing two of them. I can put pics if you want to see them..
Yeah, they tried to convince me to apply for a job . Doubt they'd pay what I'd ask for though, lol!
That's weird, did you explain to them that you're a real person and not an instant teller machine..?
My Swerve’s showing Shipped!
That's legaly very dubious imo. The applicable sections of the code defined therein would potentially include:
Emphasis added. This would be extremely difficult to prove under these circumstances. There's no or very little precedent for instances of demand outstripping supply leading to incorrect suggestions of an item being preordered but then failing to be shipped due to systemic, algorithmic, or otherwise largely automated processes, being proved in court to be intentional. And that's the burden that would need to be met.
I agree it's very scummy, inefficient, and negligent, but proving they did this intentionally would be difficult to impossible imho. Otherwise Amazon would be getting sued multiple times a day.
Got my two Hot Rods. Boxes have some creases but I'm not too bothered by it. My two Starscreams just got shipped out.
"Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
The Brits put it much more succinctly with, "Cock-up, not conspiracy."
On the bright side, Amazon stock popped $65 per share today as I was getting notice that my Walmart minibots would be cancelled in the next two days, so I guess things even out a little.
Seems like the Walmart stores are still barely getting these in. Online is coming in slowly.
Same here as my order said delayed but i get my bumblebee today and if they couldn't get them in i would get a cancel notice and refunded. Actually i really hope that i get my mini bots but i dunno anymore about walmart and there processing online orders. Seems walmart has a sloth filling orders and receiving orders.
FINALLY! They just shipped my Devy and it will be ready for pickup today. Good thing im not chasing the minibots.
Very strange, but walmart cancelled all of my minibots except bumblebees. I received Devastator yesterday and in the process of refunding me for the minibots, they also refunded Devastator. As of now I have a free Devastator.
