    The 20% off code did indeed work on Grotusque. He came out to be $19.99 not including shipping and taxes.

    It didn't work for most of us. Even talked to customer service about it. They were "working" on the problem just long enough that it went out of stock.

    I have a guess as to what happened. If you go to the HTS main page now and select SPECIAL OFFERS > Exclusives, Grotusque is included. When he was first added to the site, he was not on the Exclusives page.

    (I know because I checked the Exclusives page when Grotusque was announced to see if maybe they were going to sneak a NYCC Star Wars exclusive in there as well. I was a bit nonplussed at Grotusque's absence from the page.)

    If he was originally not marked as part of the "Exclusives" category, there would not have been that restriction.

    I actually ordered mine before they revealed it on the stream, thanks to whoever posted it to these forums. So, I just got screwed over. And I'm not the only person to try a coupon and not get it to work. And plenty of people tried a coupon and did get it to work. HTS is just a barely functioning mess that this one time worked out for some customers.

    We've obviously crushed their servers refreshing and hoping they might find more Grotusque stock sitting in the warehouse.

    Goddamn it, work.

    well, Diecast did just refer to it as barely functioning, lol. I'm guessing he wasn't expecting to be THAT on the money!

    Didn't used to be; it ran like a well-oiled machine until they decided to >snicker< 'upgrade' a couple of years ago.

    My Grotusque shipped. Estimated delivery end of next week, which is pretty fast for HTS. Usually my orders with standard shipping are about 10 working days from 'shipped' to delivery.

    An update from the chat representative for we, the unlucky who were not near a computer yesterday:

    "We apologize, but we do not anticipate any additional Grotusque becoming available on our website. However, we may find that we have additional duplicate orders in the system that must be canceled. Should this happen, the item you are inquiring about may appear on our site in an extremely limited quantity. We cannot guarantee that this will happen, nor can we give any estimates as to when this may happen."

    Sssssooooooo sssaaaalllllltttttyyyyyyy

    Then, you got lucky. I assure you, codes do not work on exclusives. They never have. Not a single code worked for me. Not one.

    They're not "working" on anything, they lied to you. They probably didn't want to lose a sale. lol

    Still didn't work. I bought him less than 30 minutes after he was revealed to be on their site, long before he went "public" and the code still didn't work. Believe me, I wanted it to. $33+ kind of sucks.

    Oh, geez. I'm sorry. :( 

    Ah... They need to work on their duplicate/"limited to..." order system. I don't mind if a person grabs two of a figure, but they don't need 5 or more. They're clearly planning on scalping/"reselling" at that point or they're OCD and want one for every mode, which I'm still not cool with. Especially when it's an exclusive. Do the footwork like the rest of us, if you want them that bad, you'll make it happen at any cost. Don't buy up a bunch just so you can have 4 facing the different directions of the Earth, plus one each for robot mode, beast mode and "Lookit me, I gots more money than brains!" mode.

    I personally like "Limited to 1 per household" it's amazing how easily they become more available to people when some schmuck isn't buying up half of the stock for nefarious reasons. (And yes, being a douche about different modes is nefarious to the rest of us.)

    It's a special time when a new item goes out of stock before you even learn it was something that ever existed in the first place.
