    The Faker set sold out while I was checking out. Got the others that I wanted, but man I really wanted that Faker and Dupli-Cat.

    I got Tri-klops and the Grayskull set. Faker sold out. Happy with what I did get at least. The Grayskull set is pretty cool.

    Only the Grayskull set and Tri-Klops left, everything else sold out already.

    It sucks that they charge you up front for stuff that won't be out for a few months, but it is what it is. Glad we got another chance at some exclusives.

    I only got the Grayskull Set and Tri-Klops got cart-jacked out of the Horde set and Faker. Wow. That was lame AF.

    Both Faker and Sunman sold out before my order went through. Got the Grayskull set though.

    Got the Grayskull set! I was surprised at how relatively easy that was. Happy to see other members mostly getting what they were after.

    It's great to see more reports, so far, of people getting in on the ordering more than missing out.

    That sucks very much. :(  Nothing is more frustrating than having something IN your cart and then seeing that it sold out while you were checking out. Ugh, sorry to hear that.

    Well, that was a relatively painless experience! Had been on the fence about getting the Grayskull set, but thought that it might be a hassle. Ended up being quite easy though. A breathe of fresh air after Digital River!

    Ebay:
    Got The Horde, Sun Man and the Grayskull pack all ordered. Yay!
    Did not really want that Tri Clops. I want Duplicat, but not the faker and my order has gotten expensive as it is. And I just spent a ton of money at a convention and just bought Mega constux Castle Grayskull. If I find Duplicat separate at a later date I will pick him up.

    I really wanted that Horde set for the packaging...I thought the Grayskull set would go first.

    Off to eBay for the Horde. This is going to hurt.

    Got Graykull and Dupli-Cat. Went back to see Tri-Klops was still available so I purchased him separately. Would have added him to my main order, but I was to afraid to miss out on the Grayskull set. Was thinking about Sun-Man as well, but he sold out before I could add him to my Tri-Kops order. Oh well, I'll settle for the retail release.

    I got Triclops and Sunman. I’d keep trying as I seem to get different results on what is available depending on what path I take to get there. Plus, people timing out or not getting payments through in their carts.

    Digital River must have been horrible. All of the comments from yester year led me to believe this would be a horrible ordering experience so i'm a but surprised it wasn't.

    Things sold out quickly (in less than 2 minutes) though so that was amusing.
