    I nabbed my Exhaust and Greasepit figures but then greasepit went pre-order so i dunno now. I'm just happy those figures i hope ship and hubcap I'm gonna have to still pre-order yet. I just don't want to pile on a bunch of orders and can't pay for them all.

    Yep, didn't get them first like some folks but it looks like I got them for a little bit cheaper for the wait.

    Kinda glad I wasn't in the know about The Chosen Prime and others selling them for $24.99+ the first time around.

    I ordered Exhaust and Greasepit together on pulse, but realized I'd have to wait for Greasepit to be released to get exhaust this way. I'm considering re-ordered them seperately. Would I be shooting myself in the foot on pre-order priority or anything??

    Nope. They’ll ship them out separately. Pulse doesn’t wait for everything to be in stock to start shipping.

    It doesn't? Because they haven't' charged me yet for the order. Which usually only happens with pre-orders. -

    I just want to clarify I worry that if I cancell and re-order grease-put, I'll be put at the back of the pre-order line and then might not get him as soon if I just waited with my original day 1 order.

    Just trying to get clarification, if I re-order Greasepit while his preorders are still in stock, he would still probably arrive around the same?

    My Exhaust order just shipped. It's really weird because everything else last Friday that wasn't Pulse was such a disaster and had waits into fall and winter, and the other 2 Generations Selects revealed that day - Hubcap and Greasepit - were absolutely preorders so I didn't really expect this figure to ship right away even when the page said it was an order, not a preorder.

    Considering smaller etailers already got and shipped both exhaust and greasepit I don't really think it's all that surprising

    My greasepit shipped today. I ordered as soon as they went up and there was no mention of a future ship date. They must have had a small batch ready to go.

    Is that right? I checked for forums posts and news updates before posting in this thread, I guess I missed that info.

    It's part of why they made mention in the stream that Exhaust and Greasepit wouldn't really be surprises. I ordered mine from Megalopolis and they shipped 7/10, had em before hasbro even announced them. Thechosenprime also had gotten some stock of them in as well

    The Greasepit page on Pulse now reads: "This pre-order item will be available to ship on approx 08.04.2020." - apparently 8/4 came early for some. ;)  (Meanwhile, Hubcap says 9/1 which is a baffling schedule.)

    I missed the stream because it was at 6:30am PDT. Oh well, I was just glad to see there was something that people could actually order that was shown off Friday in the news, and then was excited mine actually shipped from Pulse already.

    Man, Hasbro Pulse's shipping situation is so confusing from a logistics perspective...I fell like they would save a lot on shipping if they just had batches of exclusives ready to go at the same time. I mean jeez, at least don't let us order them all at once. It's nuts that I cam grab free shipping on an order that will come in 3-4 separate packages...I don't think I've ever paid for shipping from Pulse now that I think of it.

    They've likely got a by-the-pallet deal with FedEx like HTS used to have back in the day. They ship all those individually packaged figures pallet load at a time with FedEx and that's what their rates with FedEx are probably based on. From the pallet perspective it doesn't really matter if its 100 items in 100 boxes or 100 items in 1 pallet-sized box.
