    There is no set date and for that matter no set time. Hasbro just puts them up whenever they want to.

    IIRC, it's usually a week or two after ComiCon ends, too.

    I'm reading rumors that banners were posted at the Con that they would be available July 28.

    This is one area in which Mattel DESTROYS Hasbro as the post sale for Hasbro is generally HORRIBLE in regard to what you have to go through.

    Waiting endlessly for it to come up with no set date in place and THEN anything you want generally selling out in no time.

    Seriously not worth the hassle.

    Yeah, I almost try not to pay too close attention to their exclusives. Then, maybe (if I catch wind of it) I'll pop on their store and see if anything I like is left. Happens, sometimes! Most of the time...nothin'. When they make exclusives, they STAY exclusive, sadly.

    Agreed, H.A.L.-the Ant-Man set is pretty sweet. That Doctor Strange set is gorgeous, as well.

    Yeah, Doctor Strange is my #1 want. I may grab the Ant-Man set, too. It's nice to have an actual date, at least.

    Nothing really interests me this year from the Hasbro exclusives. I'm sure the 6" Stormtrooper will be all over the place in a few months. I don't collect Marvel Legends and the Transformers exclusives didn't grab my attention. I guess with the death of the Marvel Universe line, my wallet can rest easy this year. The only thing I mildly considered was the Ant-Man set but I don't like the Giant Man costume. The Goliath and lab coat Pym are interesting but not $75 interesting.

    The only exclusive I'm really interested in is the 3 3/4" Collector set. I like having The Collector and Lockjaw. Howard the Duck and Cosmo are passable but Moonboy gives me hope that Devil Dinosaur is on the horizon!

    Try your best, but just be prepared for failure. In my experiences, if you think Mattycollector is bad when trying to score SDCC items try HTS. Can't see the super popular stuff lasting more then 1-2 seconds and especially now that they've posted an actual time and date.

    You'd think that would be a good thing, but a time and date with them will do nothing but draw people in by the droves.

    They haven't listed an actual time only a date.


    Actually the last few years it's been pretty easy to get most stuff as long as you are there when it goes up. Exclusives went up and most lasted for almost 30 minutes. The only thing that sold super fast the last few years was the Star Wars Black stuff with the exception of Jabba, who lasted about 20 minutes, and the GIJoe/Transformers Crossover sets. The Marvel sets and Transformers stuff lasted awhile.

    The worst thing about HTS is that there is no set time. You just have to keep refreshing the website and hope you are there when it goes up.

    Obi Wan would be nice but I can see him getting a wide release. Like Enchantress but don't want the rest.
