You can put it in on the screen where you are entering your personal/credit card information.

look to the right side of the screen .. it should be a greenish area.. it will say promo code.

There is a 1 figure limit on Storm Shadow as well.

As for Hasbro Toy Shop promo codes there is supposed to be a new one that gives 10% or 25% off and free shipping to be used during the Spring on all orders over $50. Someone on another website said that they used it and it worked on 4/3/08 but I can't get it to work right now. The code is SPRCAT8.

As for a 10% discount try DISC10

I think that PONY10 code mentioned before only works on My Little Pony toys, but I could be wrong.

Nope. I got here a little too late, it appears. If you want to spend $240 plus shipping on 40 of one figure, that's your deal. Wonder why there is a 1 figure limit on that item and not on others? Good luck with your Snake Eyes and timber collection.

I don't think they'll fill all those orders, defeats the purpose of a limit.

No, but why would you troop build with Snake eyes? In addition, if you Troop build, why would you leave them MOC? Lastly, you must admit it seems suspicious that you're buying a crapload of a figure that is retailing on the bay for 40-60 USD each.

Granted, it let you order them as separate orders, but odds are they'll refuse the order mate. Hesbro's not the brightest company, but they're not stupid.

If you're honestly so into the character that you're gonna keep them all to yourself, More power to you. If you're gonna Try to Scalp them, then you're just being a jerk. Don't get me wrong, There is nothing with buing one for yourself, and another one to sell down the line, or even two additional for that purpose. But Buying ALL of them so that no one else can, and then reselling them for a profit is just lame brother.

I see what them comments in the other thread were about.
But seriously, why troop build Snake Eyes?
I can see Cobra Troopers, Officers, other troop building figures, but Snake Eyes?
Just my opinion, but that's a lot of Snake Eyes. It's just weird.
Troop building is a thing that people do when they want to build up their armies of Cobra, or even Storm Troopers, or any other generic character.
This is going to come off rude, but this seriously falls under the hoarding dept..
I don't want to come off as attacking you, but seriously man.
40? Of just Snake Eyes?
It's just odd.
Dick move guy!
Though, in your defense, I will say this. If you really were buying stuff to go the toy terrorist route, I am sure you would have just bought out all the troop builders as well.

cornbot
04-11-2008, 04:53 AM
because they know it's popular and are making money off the shipping cost

your sick in the head if you classify someone buying mulitple of one figure "o.k." and multiples of another figure "hoarding". you sound like your hateing bro. open up your business 101 text book man. this topic always stirs debate i'm going to leave it alone. :)

It depends. if you're gonna keep em all for you, ok, I've got no problem with it. If you're buying with the intent to resell at higher "scalper" prices. Well, that's just lame.
But Your contradicting yourself mate. In one post you say you're gonna armybuild them. Yet in this one you make it sound like you're reselling them. Which is it?

Also, is this you?

How is this sick in the head?
Cobra troops are generic and are there to ARMY BUILD, if you so choose to go that way.
Everyone collects different, but going out and buying 40 of a character you like is just odd.
I can see maybe one to open and one to keep sealed, but 40 of one version of a character is being war wacky.
Even more so that there are so many different versions of Snake Eyes around. Have you bought 40 of them each as well?
This has nothing to do with business, unless you are planning on selling them later on, which is up to you, it's your stuff.
You can't come here and brag that you bought 40 Snake Eyes and not expect comments like this, seriously.
And yes, I can see the logic behind buying multiples of generic troop figures, and like I said, buying one or two of a certain character you happened to like, but when you buy 40 of them, that's just odd.
But, it's your collection, do what you want man.

the difference between people like me and people like you is the following. when i see someone with nice things or more than me, i admire it and try to figure out how to do what they did to get what they have or surpass there achievements. your mentality is automatically accuse people of showing off, blah blah woof woof, just immediately get angry, were all collectors here, if i was only interested in showing off i wouldn't spend any time at all chatting on this board??? i would be out and about socially showing off all my materialistic crap. anyways they'll be more, happy hunting. there's plenty of troopers still up.

I wouldn't consider buying 40 Snake Eyes an achievement, but have at it.
I collect as a hobby, and it's a nice stress reliever, and as such, I never let it piss me off or upset me.
I'm not accusing you of anything, like I said, it's your collection, buy what you like.
I just wanted to know why you felt you needed 40 Snake Eyes figures.
You just seem to go past that question, and like to claim everyone is hating on you.
I am not, I merely wanted to know why you needed that many Snake Eyes, you are the one who started in with the "sick in the head comments", and the whole generic "derr the difference between me and you is..." crap.
The difference between me and you is that you are you and I am me.
But this is not really going anywhere, as you seem to think I am hating on you, for asking you a question, so screw it.
Good luck with all your Snake Eyes man.

I just seems odd/strange to me that someone would purchase 40 extra 25th V2 Snake Eyes when they claim to already have 70 w/ a gray timber and 17 w/ a black timber. This contributes to the reason my small son can't find any joe's in the stores and I have to resort to paying double or triple on ebay for the figures he wants.

Sure, Snake Eyes is my favorite GI Joe figure, but I see no need in purchasing more than one or even two to be happy. If you have noticed on ebay, the prices for the 25th V2 Snake Eyes has dropped a LOT from where it was a week ago. People are advertising the new filler figures with the fixed crotch as the ones that came out last summer. Why pay $35-40 for a figure you can get at a local Target for $5.99?

I was able to order myself a Snake Eyes and BA Cobra Commander last night. I just hope that my order doesn't get canceled or changed because someone ordered 40 Snake Eyes.'

Yeah, Cornbot, I'm calling you out. WTF do you need 40 of them for? Cobra Troopers, Crimson Guards, etc, I can understand. I call bullshit when you say "troop building." Snake Eyes is not a freakin brigade of soldiers - he's one man. Unjustifiable.

hassidae
04-11-2008, 09:06 AM
I care less about the amount ordered than the "I kept ordering 1 at a time until they were sold out." If you planned on ordering 40 just b/c you wanted 40, that's one thing. But it sounds like you planned on ordering just to get every last one. To me, that's consciously screwing other collectors out of picking any up.

Oh wait, now I understand - the generous/thoughtful efforts of people that post here to let the whole community know things are available aren't really for the whole Joe community, but rather for just one guy who someone how manages to army build and individual and keep figures MOC. Now it makes complete sense :P

this is the same "fool" who claims he has 70 Snake eyes.. dont even let him get to you with his comments.

he probably still lives at home w/ his Mom hence why he thinks its normal to buy 70 of the same character and come on and then brag about it :)

Let him do what he want's if he wants to buy all that there is to buy let him do it..

when hasbro keeps cranking them out and he has to eat them all then thats his problem.

I sure as hell wouldn't want to tie up that much money in a particular figure

I don't see the point?


Especially when he comes on bragging about Perhaps he should change his name from 'CORN-BOT'
to CORN-HOLE'

Hey guys, it sucks to get screwed out of an opportunity to get a hot figure you want, but in the end *if* it turns out he is scalping, when we happen to see 40 or so Snake Eyes or whatever on eBay from his area, don't buy 'em. That's what I say to counter ALL scalping. Don't buy 'em, play the waiting game, and let those scalping @$$clowns sweat it out. It could be he has strange habits, I mean I'm sure there's someone out there who likes to army build Serpentors and Buzzers, heh.

These 25th Anniversary figs are not gonna have the same resale value as vintage 80s figs, precisely because people are keeping multiples MOC.

Your A FOOL because your coming on here acting as if your conquests are somehow superior to others


Your entitled to do what you like. You say your living the "american dream" what dream is that? The Dream of "Buy now and pay later?"
I got news for you buddy that dream is becoming a fading memory!
How am I a hater if I am telling you that your entitled to do what you want?

I am sure they most likley will push out a few more "black timbers"
at some point.

remember the 'impossible to find" sigma 6 figures?
well those are all over now... if you look at toys r us

no one here *atleast me* is hating on you... I think its pretty sad when someone brings up someone elses actions calling them into question is called a "hater" that is such a cop out.

if your claiming to be a business man and your business is selling collectable action figures (namley toys) and you have not varied your interests/products and or don't have a "real job"

then.. wow.. your an even bigger fool that I thought in the first place

Your going to put your families future in Jeopardy by selling stuff on ebay?

thank gawd I am not Married to you!

Good Luck w/ all your future endeavors but Just a peice of advice
I wouldn't sit here gloating about your on line activities and then rub it in in the place where you got the information to purchase those items from (does this make your Dick hard or something?)

They have an Old saying "DONT SHIT WHERE YOU EAT"

If thats to difficult for you to understand... then when your sitting there wondering why you have 100+ of one particular figure...
w/ no hopes of resale..and when your looking to sell or trade them dont be suprised if people tell you to get bent :D

Well That will be your sign :)

You may have something in your basket that has a quantity of 0 that you maybe thought was deleted because you typed in 0 for the amount (I did the same thing) and you have to delete that item if you don't want it.

Keep in mind, guys, that if this is working anything like the recent pre-orders for the Transformers Animated stuff, they will actually release additional quantities to be ordered over the next few days.

When Animated came up everyone was pissed it sold out within hours, but the next day they were available for order again. They kept selling out but kept becoming available later. So there may be another chance.

And as a sidenote, DAMN it's expensive to be collecting more than one line.

Well, I got an order in for the vehicles and the DVDs. The HISS went to "Coming Soon" while I was checking out, but it's still in my order. Even if it takes longer, I'll suffer the wait for saving $10 off retail, and some $15-$20 over BBTS.

I'll wait on cancelling BBTS though. Is HTS usually a reliable store, as far as items shipping when expected?

It's a little hard to get past the animation, which is a bit... different... to say the least, but the show is actually very good, with lots of shout-outs to the original G1 series (and even a few to the Beast Wars line, including a character or two), and the toys are marvels of modern engineering.

I wonder if HTS has ever had preorders up for a 24 hour period or if they would be willing to do that and fill those orders that they know they've got instead of having them up for such short amounts of time, due to them 'pre-selling out' so quickly. If they knew they had enough orders for them I don't know why they wouldn't post the preorders that would be open for a 24-hour period or something like that.

If they knew they had enough orders for them I don't know why they wouldn't post the preorders that would be open for a 24-hour period or something like that. Sorry, if this has been mentioned before.


You must not be a fan of the TF:A line, bro cause I know you're a fan of transformers.

They've had the TF:A available for pre-order for weeks now and still available.

But i sorta get what you're saying, but based on the TFA line, I'd say they have an estimate of what they'll be getting.. because the TFA figures sold out and came back within hours to a day..

In case my earlier question was overlooked - how is HTS as a retailer? Any history of random order cancellations, shipping delays, items turning up backordered, etc?


Yes to all of that. In fact, these orders you just placed will go into backorder status.

They are pretty good, I bought from them twice before. From my experience they tend to ship out items 3-4 days after you order them. I had backordered items once but I got it 3 weeks after I ordered.

Yea. You'll have good stories and bad stories with any big retailer. It's not just any one

I missed out again. I suppose I'd have to sit by my computer all day long and to catch them for the short time the have them available.

Don't they realize how much more they could sell of they could get more to offer? You'd think HYS'd have some pull with the company that makes the toys.

I was working on ordering some of the Animated line to go with some other Transformers I wanted on HTS but I was meaning more specifically the 25th Joes as the target of the preorder. I thought for a short amount of time the Animated figs, or at least some of them, sold out. Originally, I was going to hold out and just get the ones I wanted at retail but with the coupons they got I think I'll be able to find enough stuff to get a decent discount.

Since they're doing it with other toys on their site, maybe they'll try it with these, too. Would email or calling work better as far as suggestions to customer service go? That might not even be the place to go; maybe someone else knows.

I'm beginning to think Cornbot just likes to get us arguing. That's the only logical excuse I can think of as to why he would post on here that he ordered all the SE he could get until it sold out. I'm not going to get into a pissing match with him about how he spends his money, or what he buys. I've seen the pics of his collection, Harley, house, wife.... you got money to spend. We all get it by now, and I for one will not lose sleep over the fact that I can't get another SE. Good luck to all the members tring to score their 1st or 100th.

Cornbot is a troll. Plain and simple.

Not too worried. I got off work this morning and went to my local Walmart. They stocked the GI Joe pegs lastnight, so I picked up the fixed crotch SE, Cobra trooper, and v1 SS. Driving two blocks beats paying shipping and waiting on it to arrive. They had one of each figure from the w1 and w2.

I'll get a V2 SE, just because I already gave mine away (you know you care about someone when you give them your fave Joe), and had customized the other.

Well I saw the Trubble bubble go up yesterday so that satisfied my first gripe (It not being up for sale) then I figured I might as well buy two of them (I want to get 4, but like to hunt) so I at least have some and the fact that it's the Trubble Bubble with a Tele-Viper quelled my second complaint (Having to wait 4 months to get said item)

I'll still probably find them in the stores before I get them from HTS :)

Regarding HTS quantities; what's the replenishing difference between 'coming soon' and 'out of stock'?

It seems redundant to me that HTS uses both descriptions to describe selling out but maybe someone can enlighten me?

I called HTS customer service rep and asked if I can use that promo code for an order already placed and they practically said no. I don't see how hard it would be to make such adjustment!?

It's probably not that hard, but why would they want to do that? They've already got you locked in to make more money. Know what I mean?

That's why I always google for a coupon code before I buy from any online retailer.

I tried to do the same thing too. The response I got went something like this:


I am sorry sir, but once the order has been fulfilled there is no way for us to change the order because it is no longer in our system. It has been whisked away to our warehouse system where they are now the keyholders to all of your wildest dreams. Yous shoulda used the code when you first put the order in - sucka!

Ah, Hasbro Toy Shop...I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love that they have hard to find figures for sell, hate that they are usually only available for less than 20 minutes. And a bunch of other stuff too.

The latest example would be on Friday when they listed the Viper for roughly four hours, along with IG Destro, Snow Job, and CG. Why not list the other wave 7 figs?

Also, I wouldn't recommend buying from them unless you were an opener. They love to try to pack as many figs as possible into as small a box as possible.

Lol, would you settle for a digital taco? TAC(

Well, I can't take credit for the term "opener," been seeing that for years on various boards. Surprised you haven't run across it.

As for the latest on HTS, the wave six figs I had been eyeballing went from "coming soon" to "out of stock" instantly at some point yesterday. So annoying.

Ok dudes, every year I go and every year its a cluster-fxck, someone needs to ask the question to Hasbro, how they plan on selling their exclusives at the SDCC this year. Will there be enough? Will you be giving out "random" tickets for a "chance" to buy the exclusives? How are things going to pan out? And finally what Joe's do you plan on selling this year? Last year they passed out "random" raffle tickets to everyone which was bs because everyone still was shady about it and it didn't go off fairly. Needless to say somebody didn't get their Destros. What would be fair is to hold a raffle and limit 1 of each exclusive per customer. This way scalpers have to by xtra tickets to make any sort of profit, which makes it more of a risky descision.

Yeah, I grabbed those too. The Duke/Red Star one wasn't available yet, though.
