    I said this on the rant page, and I will repeat my self here.

    Hasbro pulse premium membership should allow ordering exclusives to make the cost of membership worth it.

    That would definitely help to justify the $50 premium cost!

    That's... Not how 99% of ordering consumer products works.. Even Hasbro Pulse isnt a direct thing. It's closer, but not direct.

    A “direct from manufacturer” deal would generally come in case form.

    That said:

    I think Hasbro should — and has the clout to — either demand e-commerce standards from merchants which include stable web platforms and preorders which have a low cancellation rate or insist on online retail exclusivity for itself, either for products or product lines.

    If a retailer costs Hasbro unit sales, Hasbro should be able to extract a concession from the retailer that allows Hasbro to handle or recover those sales online.

    It's going to be a lot of road time this weekend trying to track them down with all the different Walgreens close to home.

    It's likely too early. You might want to do that next week instead, or at least start doing it on the 15th.

    Yeah I learned my lesson with the clones not to go crazy trying to get this one. Walgreens exclusives always seem to be the easiest to secure, with a little patience!

    I think if someone actually finds it, the news will be on the front page and not hidden in the forums.

    I almost overlooked this lesson with the clone 2 pack. I know it was out overseas for a while and also in Canada (if I recall correctly) before it finally got a US release. I was just about to order him online from elsewhere but luckily a bill kept me from doing so and the very next week, the first US sighting was posted.

    I have never really had any issues finding any Walgreens Transformers exclusives nor Star Wars (if I collected Star Wars) but Marvel exclusives have been iffy here. I never saw Thing or Mr. Fantastic at either local Walgreens nor the recent Mystique.
