    It's always interesting to see who legitimately didn't care if they missed out while waiting for clearance, and the people who "wait for sales" but then immediately get very upset when they miss out of their own volition.

    "I wont pay full price. I dont like it that much/I think its too expensive"
    *it sells out and immediately shoots up in price on the aftermarket*
    "SCREW HASBRO FOR NOT MAKING ENOUGH OF THESE, AND SCREW *insert retailer or retailers here* FOR NOT HAVING ENOUGH. THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH OF THESE THINGS!!"



    It's just like the "God ill never find Walgreens exclusive *insert figure* because Walgreens...." until they find it and it shelfwarms.

    Now that Pulse is a thing, anybody who's *that* concerned about exclusives should just have a Premium Membership. It's $50 a year, but you get first access to Partner Exclusives and if you've got FOMO for any particular figure it's a huge time/money saver not having to hunt around stores or tracking down product later.

    Like seriously, I haven't "hunted" since Pulse launched. I still find stuff in stores before it ships, sometimes. But that's if it happens to show up at a store while I'm making a trip for something else.

    I'll admit, I don't really use pulse for mainline releases anymore, but the premium is absolutely worth it even if all you go for is the partner exclusives

    Sadly, even if I DID go for the premium on Pulse, I still never get online until after they've sold out.

    I get the allure of it, but it's of no use to me.

    During the last Kingdom reveal stream, when Pulse was putting up the new listings literally as the figure was announced...I was going in dropping the item in my cart and checking out one by one. Meaning I've got like 4-5 separate orders of one character each.

    It was great. I was able to get the figures I knew I wanted immediately instead of waiting for the stream to end and then dropping them all in one cart to *hopefully* qualify for free shipping. And it ended up being a huge headache saver because at least a few of the figures sold out during the Premium window and while there was SOME stock available afterwards, it wasn't a guarantee.

    And I still stand by Pulse as the most reliable etailer at this point. Target has burned me too many times (and still burns people today) and Walmart is laughable. It's also handy knowing every Friday at noon I can check the Back in Stock and Partner listings and throw stuff in my cart before the world gets access.

    It's the advantage of having a job that has me sitting at a computer most of the day. I can throw up Pulse on the screen during lunch and rip through any new stock that's come in.

    I mostly use chosen prime for mainline stuff because I can pay on preorders, no sales tax and rewards points, but pulse is easily my 2nd choice

    What the heck? Amazon lists it as $52.99 instead of $44.99.  I hope there\'s some kind of mistake because I don\'t want to overpay for this set.

    They listed it at the same price as the other set, which contains a Voyager. Probably just a filing/database error, but they haven't corrected it.

    That's a pre-order, not "in stock".
