    Are we talking about Hasbro or EA?

    It wasn't that people didn't want a Jem movie, it was they threw out pretty much everything what Jem was. JINO. Jem In Name Only. People want G1 Jem, not Armada Jem. :D  If it was much closer to Jem in the show, it wouldn't have got the backlash it did. Not sure if it would have been a hit since Jem pretty much has been a dead property for 3 decades.

    2 mins my ass, lol. I was refreshing constantly and added to cart the second it was available. Sold out before I could even get to the address confirmation page. Then I went for the Sith Trooper and made it to payment page before it was sold out.

    If anyone got an extra they want to help out with, lmk. I’ll try again tomorrow though.

    Yeah, no way it lasted 2 minutes. Was definitely under 1.

    I got stuck in the doom zone (also known as the checkout que). Didn't even know Pulse had one.

    Same. It must have been a minute, maybe even less.

    I suspect there are scalpers using scripts to buy up most of the available inventory. I doubt Pulse would have carried so few of these they wouldn't have lasted for at least a FEW minutes (10, maybe 15 - 5 at least) if everyone was buying two at a time, like the site is supposed to limit customers to.

    Hulk was about the same but maybe a few more seconds since I was at least able to get that.

    I noticed the Sold Out notification at 11:59. However, @FireSkyJet just posted in another thread that he noticed it became available again at 12:00 and then sold out again by 12:01. Weird.

    I had my CC info saved on Google Pay, using Chrome browser on a laptop computer.

    When the "Add to Cart" link showed up after repeatedly refreshing since 8:30 AM PST... all I had to do was type the first number in the CC field on the next page and auto fill selection came up and then select the CC and only had to type in the CVC and hit confirm order.

    In and out like a ninja in probably 3 seconds... :D  15 minutes later I'm still shaking. I should just order every SDCC exclusive for the rush. :p  No just kidding, it was pretty stressful. I'm glad it only happens once a year. :confused: 

    Good luck tomorrow and congrats if you scored one today. :)

    What sucks is that I was hoping to get 2 for some friends of mine. I couldn’t even do that. Pulse can go fuck itself.

    Well there's always tomorrow.

    Though usually when I hear that response, I want to punch the person who said it in the face (especially if they got it) so feel free.
