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

    • Since when was Zemo a normal guy? He murdered, and was able to impersonate, a high ranking government official, killed several world leaders while wearing a Bucky mask, set off an EMP device in the middle of a bustling metropolis, broke up the world's premiere superhero organization, memorized the Winter Soldier code book, and located a top-secret Winter Soldier factory, murdering every super-soldier there-in. All while working pretty much alone. In their in-universe estimation he must be like Jason Bourne and Keyser Soze had a baby and hired Dom Toretto as his nanny. They would probably confine his butt to the Raft just to keep the stuff ratting around in his head from getting out.
    • I posted on this idea before. Starjammers would be simple to do; they've already got body molds for all characters ( Abomination makes a great Ch'od and besides, Abomination needs to re-made anyway and scaled up to match the Hulk), and just using the Spider-Man infinite Black Cat mold youve basically got Madame Hepzibah. If they just stick to Dave Cockrum's rendition it'll be perfect.
    • i'll buy that about Clint, being a world renowned assassin and all, but I seriously doubt General Ross was not aware of Scott's association with Hank Pym or familiar with the capability of the Ant-Man formula. If they woulda not know what he was capable of you'd think they woulda put him in some sort of stasis rather than a standard cell under the fear that he could simply just slip through the cracks. I also fully agree that aside from his nefarious machinations Zemo is little more threatening than your average psycho on the streets but, like I said, the Raft just seems like the proper neutral place in the MCU. Granted, we know what the Raft is used for in the Comics Universe, but that doesn't actually mean it has the same application in the much smaller MCU.
    • I've seen it going for around $35 online. If you can manage the extra $10, that might be your most reliable option.
    • Yes! While I have no reason to think any of the Hasbro production heads are reading this, or have any plans to make Red Wolf, I sure hope they take your idea into mind if they do. In fact they need to use lighter, flexible plastic whenever they're doing figures that have tunics that extend below the waist (like Doom) or longer hair ( like Scarlet Witch).
