2014 Hasbrotoyshop.com (HTS) SDCC Exclusives Thread

Motto: ""Fate Rarely Calls Upon Us At A Moment Of Our Choosing""
It's been a while since I've been actively posting on this site, so if this thread doesn't meet certain requirements to stay active, please inform me and/or remove if necessary :D

I did a quick search to see if any Hasbrotoyshop.com (HTS) threads had been started yet for this year's San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) Exclusives. I did not come across any so I figured I would start it.

This thread, if the admins approve, can be the official thread for the HTS SDCC Exclusives. It can cover a range of subtopics such as, Time of Availability, Late night Refreshing (F5ing), Previous year information, Helping others acquire, Discount codes, First time HTS watchers, What you hope to acquire, Quantity Limitations, HTS Customer Service, etc.


For many years the SDCC exclusives became available online just a day or few after the Comic Com ends, but last year HTS blew everyone's minds by making us wait for an extended amount of unknown time, causing many to stay up many sleepless nights. I wonder if they'll torture us again this year with a delayed release. I do know that the prices are pretty steep this time! I'm curious how fast these will sell out this year?

LET THE WAITING GAME BEGIN!!!

I'm tempted to try to get the Kreon set just because it's the only one that's not super over-priced. I've love the Dinobot set, but not at that price.

Yeah, I'd like to get the Kreon set as well! Also, gonna try and get the Dinobots. Don't care for the Knights of Unicron myself, plus they are super expenisive!

I guess with SDCC coming to an end, its time to play the waiting! Good luck everyone!

I'm pretty sure noon is the time, but it might have been Tuesday instead of Monday.

Going off my old order confirmation emails:

2013 - Wednesday around noon pacific
2012 - Not sure, didn't get stuff
2011 - Tuesday
2010 - Tuesday
2009 - Tuesday
2008 - Monday

In other words, I would keep your peripheral vision out there today for it, but I'd be shocked if any of it hit. Looks like Tuesday is your best bet - remember, the Wednesday thing last year was rumored to be due to Harmony Gold and the hoopla over that GI Joe Jetfire set.

Yeah, hate the wait BIG TIME! I'm all in for the Dinos... even through I feel they are very pricey for what's in the box. I believe $120 would've been a fair price.

To those that are waiting it out, remember to play it smart.

- Log in to your account early
- Verify your shipping and billing addresses
- Verify your card is on file

The faster you can checkout, the better luck you'll have. Good luck to everyone! I expect these to go up between 11 am and 3 pm today. I don't have insider knowledge or anything, just going off past years.

Does anyone know of any active HTS coupon codes? In years past, some codes have worked early on.

2 Days down! I have a feeling tomorrow will be the big day! Gonna suck cause I'm gonna have to try and order from my smartphone with its small screen and cause I'll be at work, which I'll have to sneak away to do so. Gonna be tough to score some goodies with such a small time window to order.

Quite frustrating... I'm starting to question if the extra buck of buying on eBay is worth the bad nights. It's gotta be tomorrow.

I remember several years back now, when the exclusives were Universe 2008 Nemesis Prime and a repaint of the Titanium War Within seeker mold (can't recall which character), we were told well in advance when the products would go live, and they hit the mark pretty close. I don't recall if the same was true the following years with the reissue Soundwave and reissue Blaster sets, but I had no hassle getting them at all. The last few years, though, it's been a nightmare of not knowing what day or time they'll pop up, and the fact that they sell out in minutes. What changed? It seemed to work fine years ago when they would tell us when to expect the sale to start.

Wolfman, I completely agree with you. Hasbro has, in my humble opinion, lacked respect for their customers, specially the hardcore fans like us that have been refreshing HTS.com every 5 minutes since Monday. This is the 21st century for Primus sake!
