    Build A Bear does the virtual check out line, it's actually pretty cool and a great idea. Target and Walmart should learn from BAB and Pulse with exclusive orders such as this.

    No need to order premium membership for these. They will be available noon tomorrow for everyone.

    Great experience. Was expecting Funko-level shenanigans but nope. Got SSCC, Clones, and Pit, then went back an hour later for a Snake Eyes shirt and a Wampa. Didn't try to reorder the Pit. Whether it works or not, gotta leave inventory for the gang for tomorrow!

    They don’t care about limits. People have placed multiple orders for years to circumvent limits and no one has ever cared that I know of.

    Not sure there's an incentive to do so, though. I'm sure pre-orders makes up a very small amount of their total volume to justify the cost of rejiggering their website for checkout queues.

    Yeah, I just ordered the Pit on sort of a dumb mistake on my part.
    I was already going to back HeroQuest and saw the 30.00 shipping for it and thought "Oh well...shit, that sounds like a good reason to get Premium!"

    Turns out, after reading the fine print, HasLab projects are not included with the free shipping benefit of Premium. DOH!!!
    Oh well, I order enough stuff off of Pulse where it will pay for itself eventually.

    But yeah, I can confirm that there are definitely still Pits available as of now.
    I don't think it'll be a stress to get tomorrow either.

    I mostly just made this post so people don't make the same mistake I did.

    Wonder why heroquest doesn't get the free shipping. Unicron did by virtue of being over $50

    Unicron didn’t get free shipping. That cost was already baked into the price. You just don’t see that part.

    I did the same fucking thing....but free hasbro pulse shipping for a year, so with the pit set and the 4+ figs being released saturday it'll likely wash out.

    Plus I think the last e-mail said you had to set up the Premium Membership by the end of the day yesterday, so it's probably too late for that.

    Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Deluxe Centurion Drone Weap – Hasbro Pulse
    Product Description


    Limit of 2 per customer.

    I ordered 3 Centurions . One of my friends ordered 4. All of them shipped. Same was true for every other Pulse exclusive, and for Unicron, too. The limit was only set that you could NOT increase the number in your cart over 2.
    The whole "per customer" thing is a mistake, and has been, for as long as the first Selects toy release. It actually means "per order".

    My friend ordered 4 and from the same card, he just did 2 orders. They shipped just fine.

    me and other members signed up for pulse when they went live and were able to still order them. So that email yesterday was not correct. As you can still sign up now and order your items.

    Just checking. But whoever ordered multiples of a certain exclusive. Has your multiple order been cancelled?

    I just want to give a little word of advice on this. The SDCC exclusives in years past they have been much more strict when it comes to their limits. They hold shipping orders until they double check all orders. They then will cancel orders if they are going to the same address or the same person. This is why in years past weeks after the exclusives come out they will come back in stock it’s actually from canceled orders. Now there will always be people that do get through but just want to give a word of advice there’s a chance both orders will get canceled if you do that. As that has happened in years past and I’ve known people that have ordered one for themselves and one for their “wife” only to get zero with an email stating their orders were canceled because of multiple orders.
