I've gotten to my cart as well, but still haven't been able to checkout.

I'm still trying to make my cart go from 1 to 3 and then I have to manage to checkout.

If I can't get my order through before they're all gone I'm going to be furious.


EDIT:  Most recently, I can't get ANY of the pages associated with the 501st Stormtrooper to work.

I managed to get in and get the order through, confirmation number and all. 

If you're logged in to your account, leave the process you're in and go look at your account.  Then go to your cart and proceed through the check out steps.  I kept getting error messages while trying to hammer straight through the process and pages would fail to load, etc.  Changed the approach and it was "fairly quick" keeping in mind how busy their server is and how crappy our connection here at work is. 

Received the order confirmation email while typing this message. 8)

Guess what?  OUT OF STOCK!  After two hours straight of trying to just get one figure, they go out of stock.  Thanks Hasbro, for once again proving why your website is completely useless.  >:(

Well I got shut out too... didn't get the order through.

I'm slightly less mad than furious because I have a friend who is at Comic-Con and left a message on my other friend's phone saying that he got 5 of them, but it was from last night.

Anyone know if they were already for sale at Comic-Con last night?

Well, that sucked.

After trying to get the page to load for an hour and a half, I ended up with squat.

Oh well, after shipping he would have been $21 anyway.

Too much for a $7 figure.

Good, then I have hope that I'm not screwed.

I'm still angry at how ****** Hasbro's site was and how they managed to sell out without me even being able to put 3 in a cart and checkout over the course of 45 minutes.

I wonder how it is possible so many people couldn't get pages to load and actually purchase the figure, only to have that figure magically sell out.

You'd think if so many people couldn't get in, that they wouldn't sell out so quickly, right?

Then again, this is Hasbro we're talking about...

Tough to answer that if we didn't know what they had available for online sales. This thing will be like any other exclusive and be available  at random intervals.

I tried calling but they were sold out by then.  The operator said that they were letting people order a max of 10.  WTF ???  Thats why it sold off so quick.

She's probably misinformed.

I'm going to wait this one out.  If you wait 6 months or so, you can usually get one on the cheap on ebay.

Check out the completed auctions for holo Leia from last year - she's going for $10-$17 right now.
