Oh man, I hope I get mine feb 24th! That's when my ship date said. Okay so a couple days after then. But that would be AMAZING!

I changed from free shipping to 1 day shipping and the delivery date changed from March 9 to February 25, which is 5 days before it was scheduled to even ship under the free delivery.

I can't believe how impatient some people are and how greedy others are.

I remember Chocolate Moose I didn't have them but my little sister sure did. Apparently we had a really collectible one that was sitting in the sandbox. My aunt saw it and freaked out.

Maybe I should get all those in vacuum sealed bags now and in 20 years they can be part of my retirement nest egg.

Yes. I preordered with one day shipping several weeks ago and have a delivery date (est) of Feb 25.

I originally ordered on Jan 17 with free two day Prime Delivery. The delivery estimate was from about 2/26 to 3/10. I later changed to one day delivery, but the suggested dates did not change.

After I received the 'you've been upgraded' e-mail, my estimated delivery date changed to 2/25. (YEAH!!!!)

I just wanted to point out that Amazon has a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime. You can join get two day delivery for free or one day delivery for 3.99. After you get your stuff you can cancel the Prime membership.
