The Power Chord has finally been released in the Fortnite Item Shop today after 167 days from its first appearance. The Grill Sergeant skin was also available in the Fortnite Item Shop, but not for long, as it looks like it was removed from the shop and replaced with the Recon Scout skin. There were many issues that have been reported with the Grill Sergeant skin. Firstly, there were some players that were reporting that they were not able to see the Grill Sergeant in the shop, whilst others could:

It seems as though Epic are slowly issuing refunds to players that have purchased the Grill Sergeant skin, if not, players should contact Epic Games support for a refund.
Epic have now addressed the issues with the Grill Sergeant outfit by tweeted from the official Fortnite account, but there is no ETA of when the outfit will be available:
We are investigating issues with the Grill Sergeant outfit that was temporarily available in the store. We'll report back when we have more information.
