    Elita-1 just got cancelled due to "high demand" bullshit. Bee and Prime still exists on the same order. I hope brick and mortar gets flooded with this wave, at least with Elita-1s :p

    I fully expect the rest of my order to eventually get canceled, as well.

    Anyone else miss TRU as much as I do? I mean, I know they weren't perfect, but they were never anywhere close to this level of disorganized idiocy.

    I created an account after lurking for years just to chime in. I also collect WWE figures (I know, I know) and Walmart has a line of exclusives called Decade of Domination that had an identical pre-order/delayed/canceled workflow. I pre-ordered within minutes of them going online and couldn't figure out why my order was canceled, so I called them to complain (I live in rural east Texas and will never see them in store), and they said small orders were canceled to fill bigger orders. So because I'm not greedy and just ordered 2/4 and only 1 each mine got canceled, but people on ebay can sell 20+ and they got theirs. I would imagine this is the exact same scenario, scalpers ordered as many as possible and the collectors get screwed over.

    My Transformers order was rather large (the entire second wave of the Netflix subline) and I just had Red Alert canceled (with more likely to follow), so while that may be true for WWE figure orders, the size of the order doesn't seem to matter when it comes to canceling portions of/entire Transformer orders.

    One of each item may be a big order to you, but it isn't a big order to Walmart.

    That's true that I hadn't considered people ordering more than one of each figure; I was just speaking in terms of the comparatively small WWE order that carsonalt mentioned above.

    Yeah, I got Soundwave pushed to November but BB and Elita should magically arrive tomorrow. I will call customer service tomorrow to make sure the order is still good though.

    At this point I'm hoping that when my order arrives it's actually just an early 90's Sony's Walkman, a loose Pikachu pvc figure and a loose magenta hairbrush. Just for the "WTF! Why are you ordering with Walmart.com" factor.

    I ordered 2 WWE figures I mentioned above and they were canceled earlier this month, after the prepping order/delayed/canceled cycle. I preordered a single Bumblebee and a single Soundwave on July 17th within a minute of them dropping on their website, and they currently say "preparing order" with a delivery date of tomorrow, I sadly know they will be canceled sometime over the weekend. Not saying it is a 1:1 scenario, but sure feels the same. Wal-Mart needs hard caps on their online exclusives, I get they have the deals to drive web and foot traffic, but if everything I pre-order is canceled because I'm not a bot and/or scalper, it does not exactly engender goodwill.

    I got the email this morning about Soundwave being pushed back to Nov. 12 but the order page still shows him listed for Oct. 20. So far Elita and BB still show tomorrow with no delay email but considering I have not been charged for anything yet I'm not going to hold my breath. I'll just assume that all three, barring a further delay, will be tentatively due Nov. 12.

    Have any of Wave 2 appeared in stores so far? I've had 3 pre-orders canceled, and I assume more to come.

    Prime, Bumblebee and Soundwave have been delayed aka on backorder I assume. Wal-Mart must be over selling and the system sends them to backorder and finally canceling them out.

    I got the notice just 5 minutes ago the Nemesis Spoiler has been moved to Nov 12. Aslo, got notice that Elita is back up for reorder with delivery date of 11/12 as well.
