Nemisis Prime at Club store on Thursday as well
Get them while there hot! Wonder how many they got!
Hmm, if hasbrotoyshop.com runs out, this might be a good option.
Oh man I though it was the HBTS and i was like..no it is too early lol....I just saw NP and store LOL : ) SIlly me.
SO what's their non-member price going to be?
Since they mention it's "one per membership", I'd guess they're not offering him to non-members.
Not really sure why one would choose to buy this from the club store vs. HTS:
1. Availability starts at the same time.
2. Less expensive at HTS ($25 vs. $28).
3. Shipping is almost always less at HTS.
4. HTS will almost certainly have a higher quantity available.
Give me a friggin' break!
What's wrong with that? They're trying to ensure that it's only one figure per member, and deter any cheaters from getting more than their fair share.
I'm still not sure if I'm buying a Nemesis Prime, but still, it's reassuring that they're trying to be fair to everyone. After all, we still don't know what restrictions Hasbro's store is going to have.
The club store says 9:00 Central time and HTS says 9:00 Eastern.
Assuming both are correct, it will be available one hour earlier from HTS.
Probably because the club store ships internationally, whereas HTS doesn't.
However, if you're international then you'd be better buying the thing on Ebay like I did. Cheaper shipping.
I dunno. It just smacks of "No monkey business, or you'll be sent to bed without supper!" Plus, it's not like they'll be doing any actual "restocking" like there is when you return something at a physical store. (I think restocking fees at b&m stores are fairly bogus, too.)
If any are actually "restocked" later, when do those get sold? Certainly they will not be monitoring the sales at that time to put the NPs from disallowed orders back into the system while the sale is still going on.
According to an e-mail that Superquad7 received:
Good luck to you who will be waiting for 9AM CST to roll around... I for one am not going ANYWHERE near there... ESPECIALLY after what happened with my Mirage shopping debacle with their store...
So wait a minute... this is only on the club site store? He is going to be available on HasbroToyShop.com, too... right?
I want to try to pick him up, but I ain't going anywhere close to teh club store...
Transformersclub *AND* HasbroToyShop will have these figures available at 9am EST on Thursday.
Okay. Good. So i do have an actual tiny chance of getting him.
Can I make a humble suggestion that folks in the USA only order from the HasbroToyStore (as they won't ship internationally), giving international fans a chance to order from the Collector's Club (who will ship internationally).
The TCC is in TX and the e-mail I received said Alt NP will be available to members only at 9 am Central time. Hasbro's should be up at 9 am EST though (as they're in RI). I hope that helps!
Now I just hope I can get one . . .
Keep in mind, last year HasbroToyShop crashed numerous times due to the Star Wars items available. One can only suspect that will happen again.
Wow... Disaster in the making???
Wow!! Now THAT'S a lot of Ts & Cs for something that is widely available on Singapore's retail shelves. (Hee Hee!) Makes me curious but what's the average shipping fees that you guys are paying for this figure within US?
What happened? Me, ToyWiz.com had Mirage Available and I ordered him. The next day I was told that there's a delay in my order and it should be instock in 1-2 weeks. 3 weeks Later and Mirage still hasn't shipped
