    I think it's to give people who are a going a reminder of how to get their Hasbro Pulse exclusives.

    Though I do love the fact that some of the comments on the Instagram are people wondering what the hell the exclusives portal is and no one explaining it to them because then they might lose out on a chance to buy their exclusives. Plus, "no need to rush." ...Seriously?

    I'll explain, but if they have a crack at Mattel JP Hammond and one of you jokers screws me out of my bite at the apple I'm gonna be PISSED. Buster Prime would be nice, but the Botbots and Hammond are MUST HAVE.

    If you do get screwed out of Hammond, I may be able to get my hands on him for you (but no promises so you should try to get one yourself). The Botbots will be trickier though.

    Thanks, @Capirus --if we have to put you in the Backup Game, would you mind trying for two if you can? There's a young lady in the JP Collector community who's responsible for a lot of the JPToys website and forum I'm trying to snag one for too, since she probably has one of the world's top collections including many of the rarest of the rare.

    I don't know what the Backup Game is but I should mention that I won't be going there myself. I'm relying on a friend of a friend right now but I don't know how reliable they are as I've never met them. If that fails, I might be able to get one at a mark-up (that will be cheaper than eBay but still potentially costly) but if it's that truly that important to you, I can eat the mark-up cost and just charge you retail cost plus shipping. Again though, it's all predicated on the fact that I can get my hands on one, let alone two.

    Sucks that so much has been shown already. I don't think they will have anything new left to show is at the show.

    So, no Hammond, and you have to have a badge to play. :(

    In a nutshell, you have to have bought a Convention badge to even be able to TRY to get into online purchasing, and even then it's still luck of the draw. Also, Mattel isn't participating in that offering, apparently.

    Before we get back on topic, correct: Mattel is not participating in the Exclusives Portal.
