Thor is sold out. He was a Pulse exclusive, wasn't he? Welp, I'm angry.

No I see him on BBTS and Amazon.

The biggest question I have is *why* Marvel Legends, the creator of the BAF, couldn't design a smaller box for its HasLab Sentinel. That thing is frickin massive and now I'm glad I bailed if for no other reason than that. Pretty sure it rivals the Snake Mountain box. Pretty but a *huge* space hog. You people who ordered multiples are in for some fun with storage. Already had my fun with the unexpectedly similarly large KS Spawn box. Don't need another.

They could always just live in the box and save on rent.

I couldn't do it. Maybe if it was one of those uninspired plain cardboard Transformers boxes. Not art.

You could probably just flatten the box so it doesn’t take up space.

He sold out on Pulse before 4pm, and everyone helped me find other avenues just after 4pm, lol.

Unless I'm mistaken, the only items exclusive to Pulse today were the metallic Power Rangers...and they're all still available and likely will remain available. I can't help thinking that line might soon be heading the direction of Ghostbusters toward done.

This fan fest thing was really underwhelming. I was hoping for more than this... excited to keep building my comic hall of armor. Did they mention what the holographic IM was a reference to? or is it just like an excuse to make a transparent Iron Man.
He did have a holographic armor in the comics very recently, but it didn't look like that. I'm guessing this was just a cool way to get some reuse out of another MCU Iron Man sculpt they otherwise wouldn't be able to recycle. Looks real cool, though.
Yeah, it's still comic-y enough for me, they probably could have done it with the All-New IM or Bleeding Edge sculpts for a more comic booky figure, but I understand that they probably wanted the most angular sculpt they could get so that the edge highlights worked properly. I'm just hoping the "halo" iron man head in the Shang-Chi wave fits on that body, but I doubt it will without some work. Transparent figures are always fun though!

Stop making sense when I'm nerd raging 😉

But really why? Was there a sale on cardboard at the printers? Couldn't remember how you put it together so refused to take it apart again? We've all been there. But damn!

What do you want them to do? Ship it in a baggie?

Jus flatten it out and put it up as Bathroom Art.

So far this $50 isn’t paying off from Pulse Premium at all.

1.Missed out on the Target Exclusive Power Rangers Red Sentry figure.

2.Cancelled my order for the new Marvel Legends since Target has them cheaper at $19.99 and Free Shipping.

3.No G.I. Joe Classified Major Bludd for Pulse Premium Pre Order.

Give us a 10% discount too if you’re going to charge more than big retailers.

Target is a bit suspect lately with preorders. So cheaper is a good way to bring in orders.

Thwipp!

Yes you could do that, but you're missIng the point. I know this thing had to be assembled, and there's a degree of disassembly and interchangeability involved. So why does it have to be shipped in one piece in a ginormous box? Sure you can break everything down when you receive it, but in the meantime you're getting this huge essentially freight box, which gives more chances for damage, theft, potential complaints from spouses, thrown backs, etc. and some don't even have the door space for. Hell, if you went to do a pickup you'll need a truck or similar. It's impressive what $350+tax gets you here because that box is going to cost a pretty penny to ship.

So...you tell me why the creator of the BAF (technically Toybiz but now it's Hasbro) can't devise a smaller box. Seems like it would be better for the receiver AND sender.
