Just ordered mine a few minutes ago as well! Looks like they raised the price to $119 though, ended up paying $125.99 after tax. Not bad considering the craziness that occured with the previous pre-order, and on TRU's site it says they're "in stock" so hopefully it only takes a couple of days to get to me. Needless to say, I'm stoked! :)

This is good news for those who've missed out so far. I've still got a preorder that hasn't shipped out, so hopefully this means there is plenty of stock. If anyone who orders today gets shipping notifications though before me, you'd better believe TRU is going to be getting a call haha.

Well, this is my first time ever ordering with TRU so I don't know how they process things, but the last email I got from them was my order confirmation and number. So does this mean that my item has shipped? And yeah most definitely give them a call if you haven't got yours yet because I read somewhere else in the forum that a guy called TRU to check on his pre-order and as soon as he got off the phone he got an email with confirmation haha Anyways, hope everyone get's their orders fulfilled, pre-order and new orders. ;)^

I apologize in advance if this is read in 2 different threads but after a lengthy conversation with TRU.com CS and CS manager, this is what I found out about the “delayed” email and the all of a sudden availability of the item at $119.99. I tried to place an order for the “in stock” item that is currently showing online as of 1:17PM and having them honor my pre-order price of $99.99. The CS asked me for my order number to confirm pricing, after transferring my call to a manager to see if it can be done, according to their system, he said that it is in stock and that it will be shipped. I mentioned to him that I had received 2 emails, the one that said that my preorder was ready to ship and then another email stating that my item will be delayed. He did affirm that if I do proceed to placing an order today, the order will go on back order and that I am better off keeping the preorder (due to the 2 item limit) as the preorders will be fulfilled first before the “in stock” items showing on line now. I also asked, as the delayed email mentioned that if we do not receive the item by the 23rd it will be cancelled and another member was told that if they called by the 22nd that they could request the item not be cancelled, well the manager told me that it is computerized and the system will cancel them automatically and unfortunately CS could not override (not looking for a pissing contest, just saying what I was told) if anyone has heard otherwise, I would like to hear it…cheers.

I was told that we could call to stop the cancellation...but if they are saying we can't, then maybe that's the case. Geez...this sucks.

If TRU throws out the Sept. pre-orders, raises the price again (already has happened), and ships to the people who ordered today first, there will be serious hell to pay. That is one triple &*%^& I'm not goin for

Stores have 'em in stock too, but it appears the prices have increased over the initial $99.99. to $119.99. I always like seeing pics of toys in their their natural habitats.

I know a lot of fans are still beefing over $119.00 vs $99.00 but I for one rather have the $119.00 than pay ebay prices or New York and international prices. :VEHI:

$120 is a fair price, but it was advertised to us at $100 and so it's an extra $20 most people weren't prepared to spend.

i'm saying it - TRU intentionally delayed the release to wait for the 20% off coupons to expire and for people to get fed up with their $99 pre-orders to cancel them. I'm not fallin for that BS. I would've renewed my order till they delivered it at the initial price. Would've escalated to as much management as possible if i had to.

Can't prove it, of course, but it seems rather possible. I wouldn't be surprised. For a store like TRU, this is pretty ridiculous.

I've worked for TRU, and I can say that even the employees make jokes about not getting refreshed stock of items on sale, until the sale was over.

If its coincidental, then there is a least one coincidence a week.

Of course I can't prove it, but look at how many brick & mortar stores were getting them (esp. east & south) while the Sept. pre-orders were neglected.
Lol - as I am typing, guess what arrived? A BIG BOX FROM UPS!!! HE IS HERE!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :KREMZEEK:
