Really? Where are you located? After seeing this I checked my email and haven't gotten anything yet. I checked the order# for mine and it says it's set to deliver on the 14th lol I'm in the States though so I doubt it. Course now I'm scared they might screw up and send me a regular Ninjini.

Mine said March 23-28th the day my order was placed. I wonder why you had April to begin with.

When the item first went up it had the delivery date mentioned above. They have since moved it forward, and if you ordered after that you won't get an email (because it didn't change for you). My order has always said what his email said, shipping on the 14th, delivery on the 23rd-28th, because I didn't order until several days later.

I too suspected possibly a regular Ninjini, but once they posted a packaged image I think it is clear they know the difference.

If you use Google Chrome as your browser, it will detect and offer you the option of translating from German to English (or whatever). Since it is a robo translate don't expect perfect grammar, but it is good enough to figure out. It doesn't work for the image buttons though, but those you can figure out if you are familiar with Amazon. Also, you can use your Amazon ID on the site as well, so you don't have to enter information. Your Amazon.de orders do not show up on the US site though, only on Amazon.de.

Maybe they didn't have enough when he ordered but now they do, so that's why yours has the earlier date and now they emailed him to say the same.

My estimated delivery date is March 14 (however, it hasn't shipped yet) -- I'm wondering how it will be getting to me by then if it hasn't shipped.

^ I thought the same thing but then I looked more closely at the order. Looks like it'll actually ship out on the 14 and get here between the 23rd and the 28th.

I just heard in my ToysRus...that they will get Scarlet Ninjini next week (as per a manager). Hopefully, it will be true. I will check next week!
triggernut Yellow Sparx Gems: 1680
#18 Posted: 02:56:44 13/03/2013
^ It'll be nice if it's true but don't get your hopes up too much. Could just be that the manager is mistaking Scarlet for the regular Ninjini. It's amazing how little some of these people actually know about the game and characters. One clerk at a Gamestop last week when I grabbed S2 Spyro and Wrecking ball was also trying to tell me that Sprocket was a character he'd never seen before.

Why? The employees are mainly in it for the money and, even if they were into video games, have other interests. It's, you know, a job for them and most only care as much as they're told about a product.

Yeah, the shipping out date is tomorrow.

I got no email, but even when I ordered March 3 it said I should expect it March 22 to April 1. So I dunno. Maybe I just placed my order late enough to get the current timeline. I DO feel like when I placed the order it said it would ship out March 15, and last I checked it said March 14, but the Expected By date hasn't changed.

And I just copied and pasted stuff into Google Translate to translate individual pages, and used Character Map to type out what buttons said, then again used Google Translate. I find it to be rather effective. smilie Also, my family is Dutch, and there are similarities between Dutch and German (which natives would never admit to) which helped me confirm the translations I got. smilie

I'll try to wait until at least Friday evening to log into Amazon.de again to see if it says it shipped. smilie

And yeah, it's listed as an Amazon Germany exclusive (not Amazon as a whole). I suspect this is temporary, and eventually - probably after 30 days after they become available - she'll be exclusive to all of Amazon, I figure Amazon Germany is too specific to last. smilie

That, and they also have people expecting them to have obscure information about a number of different games and products. Most Skylanders questions directed to them would be asking about restocks of the NORMAL figures. And even then, if you can find someone who knows the difference between Hot Dog and Hot Head, you're money ahead.

Much as WE may follow Skylanders and the release dates for variants, your average Gamestop / Best Buy employee will worry about knowing things like when the Special Ultimate Collector's Edition of Tomb Raider is coming out, because that's what they'll get asked more often each day.

It is hard to fault game store employees for not knowing every thing about every single game. There are far more people coming in asking about a new Mario, what is going to be in this year's Madden or what's the story about the new hot first person shooter. Skylanders are popular, yes, but for a barely over minimum wage job you cannot expect an in depth knowledge about every game - the stores simply don't train them that far, and the information they send in corporate emails is pretty slim. Every once in a while you will get someone that is exceptionally well tuned in, but that is more of a result of their own interests happening to coincide with what you are looking for than the company giving them the info.

Another thing that is working against them is all of the parents/people coming in with bad info. If you don't know that much about the game and some person comes in telling you that Thumpback is out in November and you don't have anything else to disprove it, then how would you know any better? Next person comes in and asks where is Thumpback, so you say "I think he is out now", and there it spreads.

True that!
I wish that parents who are (in actuality) uninformed wouldn't blab so much at electronics and game store personnel. And I wish that electronics and game store personnel wouldn't spread hearsay.

C'est la vie, though.

Mine shows shipping soon (to the US, if I'm lucky..), but it is listed as "Aufgegebene Bestellung", which is being translated as a "DISCONTINUED ORDER". Also, under order status it says "1 Bestellung in den vergangenen 30 Tagen aufgegeben", or "One order in the last 30 days abandoned".

I'm really hoping that this is a bad translation of "Open Order" or something ...

Just checked on my order. Amazon.DE says shipping soon and my bank shows a pending charge for $22.50 to Amazon.DE so it looks like everything is going through smoothly. Mine also says the whole "discontinued order" thing and has said it for the past few days but as I already said everything is still progressing nicely.

"Aufgegeben" CAN mean abandoned, but that is not its meaning here. "Posted" would be closer in this context. All it is saying is order placed.

Mine says the same thing, and translates the same, but it still says it'll ship today (disturbing since other people here are reporting changes, like that's it's shipping now). It looks like it's not possible to place orders anymore, so I think that's what the negative stuff means.

By my estimation it's now 8am in Germany (I know it's 8am in neighbouring Holland, and last I knew they're in the same time zone), so we should be seeing stuff soon, those of us who aren't seeing anything yet.

EDIT: I notice a change! When it's showing my order summaries, the More Options button (one of the few things I don't need a translator for) now only has 2 options when it had 4 before, when I was trying to find a way to up the order to 3. Now I can only Cancel or Write a Review.

"Eine Bestellung aufgeben" means "to place an order".

I just noticed something about my orders from amazon.de.

I actually placed two orders. I placed one initial order for 1 Scarlet Ninjini so the kids would have one. A couple of days later I went back and ordered a second one so I could offer to another local collector I run into while hunting for variants. I wasn't sure I'd get the second order since it was placed a few days later. Well it's actually my second order that is posted as shipped now while my first order is still pending. Just odd that the order placed first (by at least two days) wasn't processed first.
