Seriously, if Amazon tells me that they can't fulfill my order for the Bumblebee model I'll forcefully argue that they should ship me one in a different color. The yellow one is still my preference, though.

I don't get what's going on between YOU and Amazon, Jim. You must have ordered through one of their "storefronts," and one of their less reliable "storefronts," at that (something I'm anathema to do, for just that sort of reason).

I just checked again, and right this minute there are three different K-01 deals available at Amazon (two yellow and one black) with free delivery via Amazon Prime by February 7 if purchased within the next 18 or 19 hours.

If you DON'T have Amazon Prime, trust me, it's WORTH the $79/year. I hummed and hawed for years, instead choosing to get small orders over $25 so I could get free 2-day shipping. But sometimes I'd end up just getting something else I really didn't need just to hit that $25 minimum (nowadays I might buy a $5 movie, if I feel like it, and get free shipping). Best of all, with Prime, you can upgrade any purchase to OVERNIGHT shipping for just $3.99 (the only catch is that if you're getting several things at once, you can't split some to 2-day and some to overnight -- have to make separate purchases, or else pay $3.99 for each for overnight, or settle for 2-day for each -- I learned that the hard way, lol).

Prime also gives you other benefits with streaming movies and stuff. Anyway, I'm not an Amazon salesperson, just saying...
