    Hey so the blue bar on my Soundwave has moved up indicating it's getting close to being shipped. This either means that he came in early or I'm going to be sent a $40 Soundblaster. Time will tell.

    The GI Joes that sold out are back up now.

    You know what that means?

    It means that you need to stay up all night and frantically check and recheck all weekend in the hope that they will also restock Soundwave.

    Not going to lie, just enjoying the show, and patiently waiting for WFC Kingdom. Likely going all in on that line. I can take a break.

    The new wally world Prime looks nice though. Might scoop that if it's actually painted up that way.

    I'm seeing reports that pre-orders are already being canceled by Walmart "due to high demand" for these items. Please tell me no one here has experienced this? It's possible that these cancellations are occurring with the very early pre-orders, when the listings still said "Action Figure."
    (Knock on wood, mine are still safe thus far...)

    The pre-orders being cancelled... are those for people who purchased a quantity of one, or multiples?

    Mine is still good, and I only order Elita-1 (to get free shipping for Venom Cap) and thr Spoiler pack. One of each, btw.

    Didn't order any Transformers. But I'm now worried about my other Walmart preorder.

    Even if there were some reason for the trailer not to be included, it accounts for 4 steps, not 1:

    It sounds like individual figures but I'm uncertain. You can see a few reports here.

    So far, so good.
    That being said, in the past 3 months Walmart has lost one of my orders and canceled another.
    I'm still going to venture into my local Wally World to grab Elita, Red Alert and Jackie when they are released in October.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again- Walmart Sucks

    I never got my Netflix Mirage that I preordered through Walmart. Sooo tacky.

    Once again with wave 2 I got preorders in for the ones I wanted before they “ran out” but I have no confidence that they’ll ever come through.

    Is anyone else tired of preorder culture? It used to be a way to not have to worry about missing a release and not having to drive around, wasting time and gas looking for the latest figure. Now, we have to scramble for a preorder slot before they’re gone and even then it’s a coin flip if it will ever show.

    Something is not right. I place one of those preorders on Friday and used PayPal for payment. I was told they don't charge me till the item is in stock and shipped. Well I checked my bank account and money was taken.

    I mean what would happen if they cancelled my order, would I be refunded from paypal? Or if I was charged now, will they charge me again when they ship? This wasn't what I was told.

    I preordered the 35th Soundblaster and Bluestreak last year. When I preordered, there was an authorization charge that hit my card immediately, and dropped off after a few days.
    Soundblaster shipped on time, charged when he shipped.
    Bluestreak was delayed, and Walmart reauthorized him, hitting my card. It dropped off after a few days again. Then Walmart reauthorized again.... and again... and again...
    Each time it stayed on my card for a few days, then dropped off. I eventually found Bluestreak in store so I bought it and canceled my preorder.
    I really prefer Pulse's method, where it authorizes and drops off within seconds-to-hours, not days, and doesn't reauthorize periodically, screwing your bank account.

    It wasn't card. It was PayPal. And it was deduced from bank account a couple day ago.

    You may want to get with either Wal-Mart or PayPal over that. Whatever program they use with PayPal can be weird when it comes to pre-authorizations... most of the time they recognize it as a pre-authorization, but sometimes it screws up and they don't. I had an issue with them once when I used my PayPal debit card to purchase gas back when they used to do insane pre-authorization (like $80) before your total would go through. So I had both an $80 "hold" hit my PayPal funds and the $30 I spent to fill up my tank... had to call PayPal and argue with them to get the $80 "hold" reversed. Thankfully it didn't affect my bank account due to me having around $400 in my PayPal at the time due to having sold some stuff online.

    Right now, I just sent email to Walmart just to see if I won't get charged again if items are in stock and shipped.
