    Always easier to make *more* than to eat the loss making too many.

    So if they like what they saw today and the license holder is favorable, maybe they do another run.

    2 hours is nothing, most people work during the day and cant check their phones, especially when this wasnt announced earlier. I got mine, but when other companies have figured this shit out, its insane that Hasbro cant do better.

    Nah, just arrives a about month earlier than other online sellers. It is good enough for some people.

    Does that mean they have co-opted the sales model of Asia eBay sellers having stuff before street release in NA or Europe and charging a hefty premium?

    To be honest, getting it a month earlier than Pulse, Target, and Walmart is a bit tempting.

    That’s probably the case.

    It was announced during the original Walmart offering. Sure they didn't re-up that info, but anyone that interested would remember.

    I don’t know anything about that. If by some miracle I can find Gigawatt sitting in actual stores later this year, I will cancel my online order.

    Still available for pre-order on Target and Walmart at the moment.

    The dark plastic was one of the things that changed my mind too.

    Ebay:
    Dammit, totally forgot it would be on October 1 when he would go up for preorder. Luckily my USA based friend preordered enough for all of us outside the country. Do wish Hasbro sent an email notification on these maybe a day before the preorders are up?
    Checking the page source code, only 4800 were up for preorder...

    Huh, that's true. He went back in stock a month ago or so, and despite only getting 1500 up for preorder he is STILL in stock with 600 left. Odd. Guess everyone who wanted one already got it? I think he was also in some actual stores, no?

    I might keep the Pulse order. With luck, Pulse purchases will count towards the new Premium system they're rolling out.

    And of course it's sold out. I'm not paying scalpers prices, Hasbro really needs to be their act together.

    Yeah, you can see Shopify's name right there in the code, it's nuts. I cannot imagine what they're paying them for this to still be so clunky almost 2 years after launch, they are STILL trying to get the order detail names on the main orders page.

    I'm not a combative guy by nature, but I don't understand any of the griping. Gigawatt is still up places. He was up forever in internet time (2 hours or more might as well be a year). He has every accessory everyone wanted. They even changed the windshield. I'm trying to figure out exactly what they could have done better at this point.

    Like...here you go. He's still here.
