    When did you place your order? Were you asking about when they get the /next/ batch (its currently saying for preorder on their site) or when they will receive the current batch, that you were able to buy with a "in stock" showing?

    I just called TD with my order number and they confirmed it is in stock at their vendor and will be shipped out within 24 hours. Perhaps you were calling out a preorder?
