    I'm just happy that they're carrying some. saves me the headache of finding them at Walmart which has been a struggle. I wish they would carry the Walgreens exclusive Marvel legends. those have been a nightmare to get

    I'm pretty sure even Walmart.com skipped wave 1.

    Fits with the animation:

    My guess would be if he has those pipe guns then the remaining tooling costs would go in to the rotating cab instead of the shield accessory that Huffer had.

    The other possibility is he rotates at the waist and you flip the cab over what would be Huffer's front. Would potentially be a more affordable option that only means an extra arm to give it clearance to get up and over the head.

    Marvel Legends Hellfire Club set was originally supposed to ship around 3/22, delayed to around 5/6. Looks like they hit the second mark.

    Because I just got charged for it! :)

    I don’t think so. It’s probably more likely that the agreement to let Pulse have 5% began with wave 2. But Wave 1 was weird since it was never really offered on Walmart.com.

    I agree with Effigy. It was only announced recently that Hasbro would carry a small percentage of exclusives. They can't just do it without their partners signing off. There was a 5 month gap between wave 1's official release date in January, and wave 2's in June (broke laughably early). Most likely the contracts were negotiated and signed between the waves, and were not retroactive. Same with Galactic Odyssey - the first two sets have not made it to Pulse, while the last 3 did (alas it is the first set most fans want).The intent right now seems to be to carry all the exclusives from now on.

    My Ractonite and Vertebreak shipped probably about a week ago but my tracking number still doesn't work, should I be concerned?

    You mean besides their crappy algorithm that sold above their in-store prices? Because they did that for far too long and it sucked.

    Really?! I saw that but I thought that was 3rd party sellers, I didn't know it was Walmart's crappy algorithm.

    Wow, that's... well that's something.

    Yep so far as I know Wave 1 was only available for MSRP in store, OR, if you were using the assortment link and ordering blind (which is what I did, and how I got Wave 1 for you). The individual listings I think had regular prices during the preorder stage but did anyone even get those fulfilled?

    Hopefully Pulse get those at some point for people who missed out. All together they make a fine set.

    Thanks again for that. I saw a lot of claims that the wave 1 went up and sold out super quick but I never saw anyone actually say they got in an order until a few days later when random listings popped up. So I'm not sure what the heck is going on, haha.

    Yeah some were 3rd party sellers but near the "end" there was Walmart, proudly selling their supply for double or at least a bit over their in-store prices. I e-mailed Hasbro about that to let them know how crappy it is since I knew that Walmart didn't care due to people asking their Customer Service (not like Hasbro cares too much either, but couldn't hurt).

    Anyways, to be back on topic I just go those figure display arms. Was surprised they were packed in a clear plastic bag with a Hasbro Pulse sticker on the outside. Almost like they repackaged it.

    If they only sell the display bases on their website, why bother with fancy packaging. Only company that I can think of that sells display bases at mass retail is NECA.

    Very true! Never thought of that. Plus saves stuff I have to toss once I open them up.

    Just curious. During Pulsecon, were people able to order 2 of each Exclusive you wanted? Like 2 Pit of Judgement? I know I remember getting a second Cobra Commander, but that was by mistake.

    G.I. Joe Classified Series Cobra Commander Regal Variant Action Figure and G.I. Joe Classified Series Snake Supreme Cobra Commander Figure are up for premium members. I bought one of each, but I'll probably sell them.

    Looks like regal is sold out. Snake supreme still there. I just got one. Sale I think is limited to premium members until 1pm set.
