    Lol. November doesn't sound all that bad. Us Power Rangers fans got emails this morning saying a figure - originally due a month or two ago and already delayed once - was delayed until June next year. A whole freaking year delay.

    And then an hour ago they sent out a new email saying to ignore it ha!

    So no clue what's really going on anymore. I've been fine with Pulse until really about now getting things later than everywhere else because at least I always got what I ordered in the end. But (and yes I understand the global shipping situation) they're getting stuff sooo much later anymore it's kinda getting frustrating at times...

    Pretty freaking embarrassing when Dorkside and other vendors are getting Hasbro product in before Hasbro is.

    Yeah I'm going with dorkside I think. Thanks to Yakk for the suggestion.

    What is the difference between free economy shipping and free smartpost shipping?

    Proving every rule has an exception, Pulse beat Walgreens to their own exclusive though!

    Not the first time, however. They've beaten one other retailer to the punch. In all fairness, they had waited and waited and needed to get the stuff sold so they finally listed it. Not Pulse's fault that Walgreens and the like won't (not can't, won't) put things out when they're supposed to.

    There are few in many, many fandoms who do not roll their eyes every time Hasbro announces a Walgreen's exclusive. I won't say this justifies the premium price but I am too happy to not have to go out of my way to track down a TF exclusive at Walgreens.

    Economy may end up being USPS and they may or may not deliver to your door (they make me pick up my packages). Smartpost will be FedEx and as long as they don't lose, damage, or return your package, it will come to your door.

    Scorponok got delayed, but I’m fine since I really don’t have room for him. It was more of a impulse buy, because it was the best looking titan I’ve seen.

    The stores cant put out what they dont have. I work for them and no sign of Red Alert. I even tried ordering a couple figures to see if it would come in since all deluxe figures are linked in our system for ordering.

    People are just wanting the pre-orders to be up. Though, from history, and several folks have mentioned before, usually these exclusive come up around the fall timeframe.

    Does Walgreens use an RDC like other big chain stores, and if so, what the heck's going on there? I chat up the local Walgreens employees about toys and have tried to get them to look up WFC SKUs for me and they're all like "Yeah, I have no idea why the toys are so inconsistent between stores." But I have seen multiple times that if I buy the last Siege\ER figure, in a few days there will be a new case of deluxes. Usually almost all Bluestreaks.
