Doomsday will be able to be ordered right after Comicon from Mattycollector. The Marvel Legebds box set will be available at Hasbrotoyshop shortly after the show, just keep an eye on their site daily.

HTS is not the best place to find SDCC exclusives. It's a crap shoot at absolute best. The times that they put items up, and the quantities of the items, are completely arbitrary. It's maddening...

I've gotten lucky twice out of the last 7 years.

It's certainly NOT easy, but it's possible. That's probably your best chance. Believe it or not, you have a better chance of getting them online than you do of actually being allowed in the Hasbro line to buy something. Last year, you had to sleep outside overnight before they capped the line to get a raffle ticket with a time assigned to it that you could get in line. If you weren't willing to basically spend a night on the street, you got locked out. Good luck!

Oh god, that sounds horrible. There's something really warped about fandom and collecting when you spend half your time at SDCC waiting on line to buy a toy as opposed to learning something interesting or cool, or meeting/seeing your geek role models. That being said, I'm gonna do my hardest to catch this on HTS as soon as it goes on sale because this is a pretty dope set. Ugh, I'm such a mark for these toys!!

I like the Marvel Universe line, but got tired of not finding or fighting online for the figures. I sold the whole lot back in January (over 180 figures) and never looked back. Good luck to everyone sticking with this line.

I've been going to SDCC for a few years now, and last year was the first time that was able to get in the Hasbro line, and that was only because someone gave me a couple of "front of the line" VIP passes. I gave one to my buddy Jayson, who had been waiting upstairs for hours to get in.

Waiting for Hasbro exclusives at SDCC is a huge waste of time, imo, because you miss so many other things going on at the convention.

I really wish Hasbro would set up a prepayment plan, similar to Mattel's. It's much easier to pick up your merch in the hotel next door to the convention center when you have some free time.

If you don't mind the markup, BBTS has the Legends set (all sold out of the Universe one already):

So does anyone have any idea when the exclusives are hitting? Haven't we surpassed when they put them up last year?

I have a vague memory of them going up as late as 3pm PST one year. But other than that, nobody knows anything.

I guess it will have to wait 'til Friday. But if this thread is any indication, I'm guessing not many people are interested. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with character selection; or if it's more of an execution thing. Personally, I love how Gladiator looks, but can easily take or leave the rest.

I don't know about that Ricky. Facebook groups are practically wetting their Depends over the lack of news from Hasbro on this. Not to mention I was on other forums where the news and reaction to lack there of was the same as Facebook.

My bad. I guess AFi swings more DC than Marvel.
