    Of course the day I don't watch it obsessively is when it goes back up for a short while.

    Just curious. How long did the Soundwave preorders last and were there still some unsuccessful?

    Same with me. I refresh the walmart page on my phone like every hour but yesterday I didn't for some reason. I'm super pissed. Anyone have an idea of if/when they will announce a regular version of Soundwave? I mean they should. Everything else "Netflix inspired" had a regular run. Plus I already have Laserbeak and Ravage and I don't really want a slightly different other pair. But oh well, it's just an extra 10 bucks if I can actually get this thing. Too bad they didn't throw Ratbat and Rumble(Frenzy?) in with him since they were pretty much impossible for me to find.

    They probably won't be doing a "regular" run, during the live stream they said that both soundwave and bumblebee were made clean (non battle damaged) to fit better with earthrise

    Wild, unfounded speculation: Bumblebee gets repacked (repackaged? or whatever we want to call it) in Kingdom (maybe Elita, too, SW does not).

    Walmart just canceled the Elita One that I pre-ordered during their big "Fan Friday" event. But it was then available for pre-order again and I thankfully was able to re-order. Hasbro needs to straighten out this B.S. Walmart is such a terrible partner, not at all friendly toward collectors. People are having the same issues with Mattel's Masters of the Universe figures.

    I'd guess it's more likely he gets re-released DURING the Kingdom timeframe in some other fashion like an exclusive multipack.
    I mean, a Bumblebee/Soundwave 2-pack next Christmas season (2021) wouldn't be the worst thing ever.

    It's still bullshit even if we can reorder. I initially ordered Elita and Soundwave shipped to store, so I wouldn't have to pay shipping. They haven't cancelled my Soundwave yet (but looking at the way things are going...), but when trying to order Elita now they won't give me the option for store pickup, so I have to pay shipping now.

    You know how we got the Mini Wheelie with Grimlock and we are getting a mini Daniel with Slag?

    I 100% expect a moon base 2 two-pack of Exo Spike and Bee.

    Link to Soundwave?

    NM. Looks like its already out of stock. Guess my Takara version from Anime Export is still the best bet...


    Until I find it on the shelf in a few weeks.

    I think leaks have laid out the entire retail assortment.

    But allegedly there are three packs coming that are an Autobot, a Fossilizer, and one of the missing S1 Predacons.

    Bee is supposedly in one.

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to how they do the cancelations. I jumped on the preorders as soon as they went up. Over time, I've had Optimus, Impactor, and Wheeljack cancelled. So far, the others are still good. Why those three, I'll never know. I can't imagine Impactor or Wheeljack being the most in demand figures in the line.

    Does Walmart automatically cancel pre-orders after a certain time? (And then the pre-orders pop immediately back as in-stock?) Maybe the constant delays on these toys is causing the problem?
