Hello guys!

I made a pre order of Beast And Gambit on Amazon, but the release date there is July 1st, when on BBTS and Hasbro Pulse the release date is May 1st. Do you know why the dates are different and which is wrong?

I don't know much about distributing figures to retailers or online retailers, but i guess Amazon won't get their stock until a little later?

I wrote to the customer service about it, let’s see what they respond. Hope it will not be held for 3 months.

EE is Hasbros largest distributor and is there only wholesale distributor as well so they get their estimated ship dates directly from Hasbro. To that end, I would trust the dates EE has over anyone else. Also, because of the above, EE will never cancel your orders because their pre-order allocations are locked in from Hasbro. I don’t buy figs on Amazon but I have heard/read countless stories/examples of Amazon canceling pre-orders so there’s that to consider as well.

I've also wondered the same thing. According to the Pulse site Xavier will be available to ship on March 1. But our Toys R Us here says "Do not Sell til Marl 31."

July 1st is the second wave. The Caliban figures said May 1st on Amazon initially, then the more popular ones said July 1st, then they all said July 1st. They just ran out of their initial allocation really quickly and immediately started soliciting preorders for the next run.

So weird how retail and etail can differ from time to time. Most times, they are reasonably in sync but for example I got shipped my case of the Riders Wave 3 (Deadpool & Xavier) over a month ago from EE.

Sounds like a reasonable explanation.  I'd like to know why the date of my pre-order changed from May 1st to July 1st a couple days later, though.

It’s still May 1st on BBTS. I canceled my Amazon pre order and made it on BBTS. Hope it will not change the time as well.

Out of curiosity...why do you care when figures ship lol? As long as your order is locked in and you will get them, the what does it matter? I mean I get everyone likes having stuff when it’s new but i could personally care less when stuff ships lol it will arrive when it arrives. As long as I got my order in, I’m good.

I won’t be able to get it if it comes later than May. So it’s important for me. Plus, I really like to have things right from the oven

    • Not sure it has been posted but check Rite-Aid stores. Legends are beginning to show up there now since Walgreens bought most of the company.  Have seen finds posted on a few Legends groups
    • I think you are overestimating how often characters change outfit. The cases of Captain America and Thor are particular since they've had a past couple of hectic years with several temporary changes which I would consider an exception and not the norm. In the case of Spider-Man, he has only had one major change in the past five years; of using the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017. It's also worth pointing out that this was Spider-Man's only main costume change in the modern era. Also, the Spider-Armor got a figure in 2017, in the MJ Watson 2-pack. Even then, Hasbro has delivered modern versions of characters. But my issue is how slow they are at doing so. I think Hasbro should be able to keep up if they became as involved with the comic division as they are with the movie side. Using modern outfit changes as an example, Spider-Man used the Spider-Armor between 2015 and 2017, and it only got a figure in 2017. Iron Man's Bleeding Edge Armor was 2010-2012, w/figure in 2013. His Marvel NOW! Armor was 2012-2015, w/figure in 2015. His Model-Prime Armor was 2015-2016, w/figure in 2018. Captain America's Marvel NOW! uniform lasted from 2012 to 2014, w/figure in 2014. Thor's Marvel NOW! suit was 2012-2014, w/figure in 2015. His first Unworthy outfit was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2017. Something similar has happened with other topical characters, like Jane Fosthor who lasted 2014-2018, w/figure in 2017. FalCap was 2014-2017, w/figure in 2016. Ms. Marvel debuted in 2014 and got a figure in 2016. Miles Morales in 2011 and we only got a proper figure in 2016 (not counting the bad 2012 attempt). All of the modern outfits I mentioned had a pretty long life span of a couple of years, but Hasbro only made a figure for them when they were about to be ditched or were already ditched. In contrast, Hasbro works very tightly with Marvel Studios, allowing them to plan figures well in advance and release them either shortly before or shortly after a movie comes out. Even a delayed figure like the Iron Man MK 85 is coming out on the same year it debuted. For movie figures, 7 months is an eternity, but I'd be beyond shocked if Hasbro managed to pull that off for a comic look. I need to go on a tangent and speak a little bit about the Iron Man Marvel NOW! armor and how odd I find it because the armor debuted in 2012, and Hasbro already had a comic-accurate 3D model of it as eary as 2013 which they used for the Avengers Assemble 3.75" line. However, it only got a Marvel Legends in 2015, which lazily used a repainted MCU MK IV mold (which was inaccurate for the armor it was meant to portray). I think this could be an indicative that Hasbro can have the resources to release topical figures much earlier than they do.
    • It looks really cool but I still think Hasbro will release a MK 85 with the back piece or a battle damaged one with a bloody RDJ head and a snapping hand.
    • I think this is one of the better head sculpts Hasbro's done with the new face printing tech.
    • Looks awesome!! So much better than the wave 2 War Machine figure. I just wish that instead of it coming with 2 Thor heads, it would come with an unmasked Rodey head and a Thor head with removable shades.
