Is there a specific time these are going on sale tomorrow?

Star Wars items are not on sale until September.  No official word on time yet.  This year they are making more of an effort to spread things out to try to reduce the traffic.

Pulse Premium Early Access Dates for SDCC stuff -
8/15 - My Little Pony
8/15 - Disney Princess
8/15 - Trolls
8/15 - Ugly Dolls
8/20 - Overwatch
8/27 - Power Rangers
8/29 - Marvel
9/03 - Transformers
9/09 - SDCC-box Black Series 6" Sith Trooper, 6" Kenner Fett, 3.75" Jedi Destiny Luke 3-Pack

(also, the Basic-box Black Series 6" Sith Trooper goes up for order on 9/04).

Gotcha, thanks! I'm glad I wasn't furiously trying to reschedule meetings and order on my phone tomorrow.

Any idea how quickly these sell out? Are they like the 30-45 second sell-out NECA exclusives?

For the most part they have been "blink and you miss it" fast sell-outs for the 3.75" and then the 6" stuff seems to vary by Character.  The Kylo set a few years ago lingered, but recent stuff went fast.  I imagine the Luke set and Fett will disappear QUICK.

The 6" Sith Trooper may last a bit longer simply because the cheaper basic box version is supposed to hit Pulse a few days prior so that may ease demand a bit, as well as the fact the figure will be released again in October.

Even though they are not taking pre-orders yet, Hasbro Pulse has posted the links for all the SDCC 2019 exclusives.

Here is the link for the Luke 3-Pack so you can prep for F5 mashing on 9/9 if you're a Pulse Premium member (9/10 if you're not) - Vintage Collection 3.75" Jedi Destiny Luke 3-Pack

Thanks. Do they usually put them up at a specific time?

No.  And historically they've never hit the advertised date either.  Although usually the date isn't quite as explicit.

Last year Jayson put together a list that showed how it varied widely from year to year.

Last year, I had no problem ordering the Aphra/0-0-0/Beetee 3-pack, the Chewie w/Porgs and Centerpiece TFA Rey vs. Kylo - I could have also easily ordered 6" black series item - I think it was Han w/Mynock if my memory serves.

I ended up with five of the Aphra sets - so I want to say that I was even able to go back and place a 2nd order - that's how long that 3-pack lingered.

I don't think Luke will linger as long, I am definitely hoping he will not be a "blink and you miss him" situation either.

I think the 6" Boba Fett will be the tough one.
