    so what are the odds that red card holders aren’t using bits to scam up the works?

    ...cause I’ll get a red card and do “timed exclusives” all day just to squash that nonsense.

    Pulse announced they would have a limited stock of all exclusives and so far they have remained true to their word. I pre-ordered both Mirage/Grimlock and Sideswipe/Skywarp sets from Pulse. If I remember correctly the Mirage set, and probably the other set preorders were only available to premium members for one day and then it opened to to regular buyers the next day. So the Target exclusives will be the true test. That being said, Pulse didnt sell the Walmart exclusives. (Netflix) But im interpreting Pulse's promise as being aimed at "online" exclusives. Not retail exclusives. So we will have to see because Pulse's promise is new and the only precedent we have is the Amazon exclusives. Lets see what happens. But lets also be honest, neither Road Rage or T-Wrecks has had an "offical" (lol) release. I got my redwing from Target.com without a red card. Some say that was a mistake. Although it might have been a rumor that didnt pan out. Not sure if the 2nd batch of redwings required a red card when it was restocked. But Pulse did get him in stock in limited quantities way later on.

    Pulse sold the latest wave of Walmart Siege figures and the Beast Wars reissues. While not all Walmart exclusives landed on Pulse, majority of the newer releases did.

    Pulse never claimed they would carry ALL exclusives, that's dependent on the retailers choosing to partner with pulse on a figure by figure basis (per a conversationI had with their customer support). In addition to that the premium windows for the battle across time 2 packs were an hour each before opening up to non premium members.

    Thanks! I assume that it showing up at a place in Asia means we should see it within a month or two?

    my current guess for the 4-pack knowing it is part of the buzzworthy line:

    1.treads
    2.bumblebee(bugbite in new deco)
    3.nightprowler(probably has mutant mask)
    4. mutant mask blackarachnia

    Im getting lost... can Hasbro make a map of these exclusives?

    "I'll have a frapuccino. And an exclusive, brown TF, too."

    "Would I like fries w that? No. But u still have those yellow Tracks exclusives?"

    Coming soon: Seaworld exclusive BB. With swim trunks! :D

    Road Rage as a red card exclusive; I applaud whoever decided that

    They all are going that way, unfortunately, it's the new world. Target though, given their usual attitude, just feels especially egregious.


    At least you know ahead of time that if you miss these guys at Target that you'll get another chance down the road.

    My thought process is that this whole Red Card thing is annoying but not insurmountable (for me.) I only want Road Rage so I can see what happens with T-Wrecks in the next couple of weeks and see if an allotment is on Pulse. If so I’ll hopefully order Road Rage in October or November via Pulse. if T-Wrecks doesn’t show on Pulse than I get a debit Red Card and order via Target.

    No you won't, the timed exclusivity is for the red card requirement, not the retailer. It's still a target exclusive in the USA regardless

    I misread it then, oh well, but still good to know for the completely anti-Red card people.

    Well, all I know is what the Pulse guys said on their youtube video. And Redwing ended up there, it just took a long time. I didnt know how long the windows were. I was ready to order when the moment they dropped. I stay on top of these things so I dont miss out.

    I don't think you could do timed exclusives ALL day. They only let you buy one, and that can't take more than 5 seconds.
