As they say on reddit, "First world problems"
Vote with your dollars. We always have, since 1792 according to Wikipedia. (Canadians and the rest of the world excluded of course).
Side note, my only pre-order was in maybe 2002, the Lionel CP SD90 that nobody wants to buy. It went back for reprogramming, it had problems with it couplers, it still lurches, it still shorts on certain switch setups, but dang if that stinker just keeps on running. I mean I run it just so I can break it and get rid of it, and it won't break. It has "Trainmaster" style blinder-inner flange trucks and only two rollers, issues Lionel and MTH have since addressed. And the color isn't bad.
