    Possible delays in Walmart shipping preordered Gunships?

    Hey folks, I preordered my Rep. Gunship from about a month ago. Anyway I knew that the site stated it would be arriving at my house on our around 8/15/02. So the other day I checked out my account on their site to see if my item had been shipped yet.
    Unfotunately it hadn't been shipped, and it still said "Backordered". So I waited a couple more days and still it hadn't shipped. I decided to write to the customer service, via e-mail, and see If they could tell me when the expected shipping date would be. The following is the reply I got:

    Dear Mr. Walton,

    Thank you for shopping at We truly appreciate your

    We are writing to apologize for our delay in shipping the Star Wars

    when the item will be shipped. We are working to resolve this issue as

    So I don't know how to take that, hopefully someone can figure out when it's supposed to ship. If their gonna ship slower than say I might just cancel my order and get it through them. I'd appreciate anyone elses insight into this as well. Thanks

    I ordered the gunship in May. I checked my order & it also says it is backordered.

    I also ordered the arena playset. It showed a September ship date. Possibly they will hold thegunship till the playset comes in.

    I agree with you, if I can find it at TRU or a walmart store, I will cancel my order.

    You know the last parking spot furthest from here? Well I'm one spot beyond that!
    Don't worry...that is a canned responce, they can't check on the status of your order any more than you can...they just needed to respond. Wait until the 15th...then worry.

    Ok thanks or the input.
    I just was wondering right now because you'd think if it was gonna be coming any time soon they would have updated my shipping information under my profile section, letting me know that it's atleast shipped.

    Oh well nothing to get excited about I guess, i'm just looking forward to this toy most of all

    Anyone else out there preordered this from walmart?

    I did order two then cancelled them because walmart said they would charge my debit card. So a month ago I re-ordered 2.

    I am looking forward to getting it and I am sure that there will be a shipped notification real soon!

    I don't think there is a need to panic. They'll come through. I'm sure they have had enough pre-orders to know what they need initially.
    OK... I BLOG. YOU READ. at

    I cancelled my order a few weeks ago. I'll wait until it arrives in stores, then decide if I still want it.

    Just noticed on the site, that the link to preorder or even information link is no longer valid. You get a message saying page not found!

    Any comments on what this might be?
    May the force be with You!!!!!

    I called my local Wally World and the UPC code is valid in their system but it is not available for of yet.
    The system shows mine as ready but no other information is yet available. Which shipping method did you choose. I chose Priority as my shipping method.
