The wait is finally almost over.
The Toys R Us website has been changing several times per day with products appearing and disappearing and changing in stock status. Yesterday was the first time I saw the any of the Savage Planet series sets in stock, and I ordered all of the ones I could at the time. Bulk and Rocka (normal size) were out of stock at the time I placed my order. Stringer was listed as being "in stock," but the site wouldn't let me add it to my cart, saying there weren't enough (1) available to fulfill my order.
Today, Bulk, Stringer, and Rocka all appeared in stock again, which makes no sense as I highly doubt another batch arrived from Lego already. Regardless, I have them on order now as well, though I had to pay twice for shipping thanks to the TRU site quirkiness. Same thing happened to me when the Ordeal of Fire series was released, too!
As soon as the sets arrive, the videos and MOC-making will begin. I actually wasn't able to mentally get into the theme of the fire villains and firefighter heroes, but the jungle theme excites me a lot and I look forward to dipping into the massive Bionicle parts archive to churn out a lot of Rahi, er, I mean, Savage Planet native fauna :)
