Once again the wait in line BS started again and it felt longer than the one from yesterday. Then yet another hold up was the shipping options were loading. Why does that need to load?! It didn't need to load yesterday! Then the site tells me that my payment information expired so I had to scramble to paste my card number and retype my name, expiration date and CVV. Sure enough, it sold out again. This is seriously ridiculous and frustrating
That's what happened to me!

My hands are shaking. I spelled my own name wrong while entering my credit card info and had to backspace to correct it. Regular set sold out on me and I had a tense few moments while I was waiting for the shipping rates to recalculate themselves. I hate that wait. I felt like I was going to lose'em. Ultimately I managed to get the diorama set and Hawkins. Got my confirmation e-mail and checked back to see that the diorama set sold out so I managed to sneak my order in today somehow.

Neca said they had more than doubled production this year compared to last years exclusives (5000 + 2000 diorama sets = 7000 compared to last years 3000) but these figures are evaporating in the same amount of time. It certainly doesn't FEEL like there's double the amount otherwise more people would be managing to get their hands on these sets. The only thing I don't know are how many sets are being made available each day for the pre-sale. Are the Scalpers out in force on this one? Did they more than double the production only to be able to sell more to BBTS later on? Will they make more stock available tomorrow so that they'll last longer before selling out?

Paypal allows you to save your billing info beforehand. You have to input it manually if you use credit card (when billing =/= shipping). Don't be an ass.

My brother in law scored me two diorama sets today. Only one of them is spoken for-- if anyone wants the second one, it is up for grabs.

Not if you use a modern browser like Chrome that can save and sync credit card information across devices, and auto-detect credit card web forms and dump it all in for you automatically regardless of whose website you are on.

I'm not even going to bother. I'll buy it from a scalper. Gotta support them since I can't get it any other way.

I seem to remember it was a mad rush for folks trying to purchase some of the previous sets from the NECA comic con booth. Sounds like the people that got them already had some credentialed advantage of being inside the hall when the doors opened.

Glad I'm not the only one PO'd at NECA's site. I looked. It took a whole minute for that in check out line screen to go away. By then it was too late. I didn't even get to payment screen for paypal to be able to screw me up. I'm going again tomorrow. Why not? Best of luck to all of us.

Did I hear right that the 4 packs sold out faster than the dioramas today?

I havenít had to rush NECA in awhile. Last yearís nightmare was the Nickelodeon booth for the Playmates Usagi figure. That one you didnít my get unless you were in line before the doors opened.

The exclusives are no longer up on the store. Are they being pre-sold again tomorrow or no?

Oh, maybe that's what I was thinking. Thanks for the clarification!
