Not much anyone can do. TRU keeps putting it up and taking it down. Seems like the only option is to routinely check their site and hope you hit it at the right moment.

For those who got mp thundercracker did it get to you in good shape?


I have always had good experiences with ordering from TRU as far as items arriving in good condition. My MP Thundercracker arrived in great shape and so have all the things I have ordered from them through the years. Its just getting the orders in and not getting them cancelled that is the tricky part ;)

Yeah I've heard a lot of bad things about ordering from TRU but anytime I do, it always shows up in great condition. I've never had a complaint with them (other than site availability haha).

TRU should do a rain check process so everyone submits their email and then when more are available they go down the list and give each person a chance. With current approach the people who constantly check the page get the toy.

Instead how about TRU just put these up on Ebay and cut out the scalper. ;)

At least they could put Prime's page back up and disable the pre-order link if they have to. Not having him on the site at all has got to be stressing a lot of folks out.

Start checking your credit cards, and Paypal accounts, I had my charge reversed. I sent them a email, hope to get an answer soon.

There's gonna be a lot of pissed off people if this is just the beginning.

TRU must have realized that they were offering a product that collectors wanted, at a price they were willing to pay, and that it was actually available for purchase, so they had to rectify the situation. 8-}

:BANG_HEAD:

They should have only put a temporary hold on the funds to make sure they were there, so the hold being released is no surprise. They charge you when the item ships so that's when it'll be fully deducted from your account. I wouldn't worry as long as you haven't heard about a cancelation and it's still listed in your account on their site, you should be good.

That's the thing, there was a temp hold for -109.95.
Then yesterday, it refunded me the 109.95, and now shows the paid balance at 0$.

whatever, as long as I get my MP Prime, otherwise I'll have my boot so far up TRU's ass it will be making leather bound MP Prime.

If I remember right, that's what their order form said they would do. I seem to recall them saying it would appear as if they charged your account but in reality they weren't and after a few days the supposed charge would vanish and not appear again until the item was shipped.

That might be what you noticed happen.

You nearly gave me a heart attack when I first saw the message though. Lol. I can rest a little more easily now. Haha.

Other than you're screwed? Nothin' much. :)

But seriously, you need to contact TRU.com by phone and get that handled.

i called up and the customer service woman said everything’s fine nothing to worry about. The reason there is nothing in my order tracking is because there’s no tracking number and she said once it has shipped it should appear

UPS but then handed off to USPS for delivery, once it's in town, if I remember right. Last time I ordered from there, it was MP Grimlock though :)

Yes. Patiently waiting. It would be nice to use TRU's 20% off a $100 or more purchase coupon if I found him in a store though. At least shipping will be free. Come on shipping notification mail!!
