A poor decision by Hasbro. While people work all sorts of shifts, a majority will be working at 10am and can't get to their phone to order a toy. If I wasn't off sick I would have been at work and couldn't have sidled off for 20 minutes to order a toy! I'll give them slack with stock levels: the Current Situation may be impeding that.
TF availability has been slowly sliding to Matty Collector level of late.

Indeed. I think it would be the latter as Kapow wouldn't want to deliberately annoy Hasbro. Which is what I'm saying - ID are busy defending themselves on FB saying it was Hasbro's decision to go for a 10am launch, when really they could have waited. It's not like they were going to be left with stock. Star I can well believe may not have realised what they had - they are very Star Wars focused and their usual announcements about TFs are vague. They didn't even promote putting Roritchi up.
Thankfully, I think the last two Tuesdays and the Quintesson Pit will be it for Earthrise apart from Thrust and Runabout. I think we're getting there. RFC this week mentioned the weird timing of the Megatron/Sandstorm preorder was because it was timed for a reveal in Singapore, which having checked would have put it about 5pm their time from when we got it in the morning.
This two pack is the first of five new sets but it it doesn't look like they're all exclusives to Amazon. They may be, but the wording on the press release sounds like Amazon is first up among a number of retailers.
