Why is it that every time Hasbro has one of these Hasbro Pulse Premium Members deals, the item you want is sold out by the time it gets around to regular type customers?  I think Hasbro maybe makes about 20 figures and loves to brag that the figure sold out in a matter of minutes.

Dan Larson's going to host?  That's cool, I enjoy his Toy/Secret Galaxy stuff.  Not familiar with Thew Adams, though. 
Gotta get the Baroness & Twins exclusive.  They look damn good.  Hopefully it'll only be that and Detroit Steel for me so I can save some dough.  Thankfully zero interest in either of the announced Star Wars or Transformers exclusives, so we're off to a good start.

Considering the basic versions of the twins are selling for like $10 on Amazon a lot of the time, I can't imagine there will be any market for them if you open the set.  The Baroness is amazing.  It's annoying that the improved head/neck are locked behind a PulseCon exclusive or I would buy enough to replace the heads on my display Baronesses.

I’m betting they’ll do a regular color release of her at some point in the mainline, since she’s technically not had a mainline release, only an exclusive vehicle pack in, and movie fig, and a retro card.

Maybe.  We've yet to see figures like Mindbender or Serpentor get main line releases.  Maybe Baroness will be different because they can recolor her.

5:01 PM ET - Everything will be marked as "sold out" because Hasbro will make a limited quantity instead of supplying enough for people who want these items.

If Hasbro decides to sell these Hasbro Pulse exclusive items then why not sell them as a Kickstarter-type sale?  They accept pre-orders and make that number to sell so at least everyone has a chance and if anyone cancels orders then they list them as in stock.  It's not like the items won't sell.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but why are all the brand logos in model kit frames? Does Hasbro even do model kits? Is it maybe supposed to be like a hint towards an announcement or something? 

It’s just for aesthetics. It’s to give it that toy-ish feel. Hasbro ain’t making model kits anytime soon

Could be that model kits are injection molded and most plastic toys are, too. Both have sprue trees, but with model kits the parts are left on, and removal, clean up, and assembly is up to the buyer. Obviously with Hasbro and other toys, that's all done at the factory.

Do we have any info on the exclusives pricing?  This may be an expensive Friday.

Nothing yet that I'm aware of, and we may not know anything until tomorrow, but we'll have info about that as soon as it's available.

Hoping to finally see a classified Big Boa. And staying hopeful that theres more animated D&D coming.

Big Boa was part of the pipeline reveals so its not an “if” but a “when”! Hopefully the sooner the better ofc

Every G.I. Joe Classified PulseCon exclusive has gone up for sale multiple times after "selling out" the day of the convention.  They don't sit in stock for hours and hours online, but they have not been impossible to get.  The most recent PulseCon Joe exclusive, Serpentor, was probably available on Pulse four or five times, including in this year (2023).
