    I dowloaded the app and signed up, then deleted it because fuck this shit. It doesn't ship till September anyways.

    Why exactly is Hasbro doing this? The Snake Eyes Pulse exclusive was understandable, WTF is the reasoning behind this?

    I hit purchase and it kicked me out of the app.

    Kept saying my verification code was invalid.

    Yeah, I had everything setup days ago. Sat there and was updating the pages and clicked purchase asap. Nothing except annoying music and stupid vids showing me how great this thing I can't get is supposed to be and telling me to buy it when I can't.

    Fuck these people. The app is complete dogshit but now on Twitter they’re saying they updated to the images that Hasbro sent which is the regular. That colour in the video was a sample they were sent

    So, yeah, this app is bullshit. Also, from what I've read it's supposed to see mass retail in September.

    So it’s either just a scam to get info from people or that light blue one might truly be an orphaned SDCC exclusive that will still come some other way. IIRC the MP Ghostbusters Optimus was available on that piece of shit app, at SDCC and on Pulse. If it was the Con exclusive it would be ready to go so that’s why they got that one. The Sept shipping didn’t make sense

    Yeah, unless I'm completely misunderstanding their Instagram posts, this is just a place to preorder the retail release. Nothing about it says "exclusive." They're just touting it as "early access." Fuck this jacked-up app.

    Hasbro, don't deal with nonsense like this, again. Just use Pulse. You're trying to get people to pay for memberships, after all.

    Exactly!

    Yeah, that’s what I was getting from the very start and posted about it but it wasn’t clear and I didn’t want to take the chance.

    These people should work on a functioning app instead making videos with models that probably don’t even know who they are.

    Sorry to hear that. A friend of mine was just telling me that he was having the same problem. I don’t know if I just got lucky or what, but mine went right through.

    I feel none of your pain in this Hasblo app when I am already throwing chairs against the wall because Mattel decided to exclusively release the new MOTU line to.... Walmart. At least Cobra Commander will be on BBTS in a week or 2 and not 12 months and then fucking WallyWorld. Joe fans got it easy. Easy!
