    I've never seen them on Pulse either. It's interesting that they have Micromasters, but not Battlemasters. Not sure what their reasoning is.

    Got the same email. WTH? I ordered mine within the first half-hour they were put up on their site.

    Really? Mine already shipped and is halfway across the US at the time of this posting. Says should be in my possession on the 24th.

    Wesr Coast here... So weird that mine shipped out on Tuesday and the rest of you are still waiting. Also I ordered it early in the listing day, not sure if it was the first hour but it was early.

    I'm in NY, right next door to PA. Usually get my stuff within a week/week & 1/2 of them getting stock.

    Alright so it's not location based. Have you cancelled any orders with them before? I'm just trying to get a sense of what dictates which ship out the soonest.

    To be fair, I ordered mine at the same time I ordered Zetar and Nightbird so I kind of expected to have a slower ship date.

    I have cancelled one order for Impactor a but after ordering him since I decided to only order bots I really want. Haven't cancelled anything since then.

    It's super irritating that Pulse's emails are hit and miss. Sometimes I get them, sometimes I don't. I'm going to assume based on what you all have posted that mine won't ship till next week either.

    I have had the same issue. I know it's still the feeling out time for them, but they need to have their shit together before it's time to start asking for re-ups for the Pulse service. Such a loser of a service as it stands.

    It's a cost thing re: shipping. Notice that the cheapest thing they sell on Pulse is for 9.99. Average USPS shipping for anything outside of Zone 1 is 5.99. Meaning that if they have anything less than 9.99 they will most likely be selling items at a loss. Now, why does this matter?

    Because thanks to the Premium Accounts Pulse sends every preordered item separate.

    Mark my words, when the free premium period ends and they can ship 90% of their products as grouped orders they will put up the battlemasters.

    Its the same reason some Battlemasters and smaller items are considered "Add On Only" on Amazon.

    They COULD go grouped order shipping with Pulse Premium now, if they wanted to. Just a bit of programming and planning....

    Have never canceled anything on pulse. I ordered Nightbird & Zetar later than the cassettes and already have them.

    I'm in the middle of central/western NY. WTF?
    I'm not complaining as long I get them. Lately it seems who gets what first from Pulse is a geographical toss-up. :confused:

    Random thought of the day: Badass points for including a Big Lebowski quote in your stats. Nicely done.

    And yeah, I think Pulse is getting better, but still not ready for prime time yet.

    They sell the Power of the Primes Prime Masters on there for $5.99 though.

    So is anybody actually going to open up their Frenzy and dino cassette pack or just keep it MISB mode? Naturally, it's sold out when I decide I want it to add to my G1 shelf. :confused: 

    That's what I bought to get the free Pulse Premium membership. :D 

    I'm guessing those were grandfathered-in items that migrated over from hasbrotoyshop? I really don't know why Hasbro Pulse does what Hasbro Pulse does.
