What a fight.
Since the day it was announced there will be the SDCC exclusive Aragorn and Arwen Funko Two Pack I knew I absolutely NEED this. Unfortunately there is no way to visit SDCC itself and also there isn't a @barnesandnoble
book shop in Germany which I could've visited to grab this Two Pack. So what's left? The Barnes & Noble online shop. Well, it's not like I haven't been warned by experiences from last year... but this 20th July was horror. Since 9 am (Berlin time) the BN exclusives have been in stores. And since exactly that time I was trying to get them. What followed were hours and hours of neverending hits on the "submit order" button. Result until 10 pm (!!!): absolutely nothing but gateway timeouts, errors and worse. I even spoke with the customer service to check when their servers will be running smooth again. They gave me a 20% discount code, which would have been nice if there would have been ANY fucking chance to place an order. So. I spent over 12 hours of permanently refreshing my page and trying it over and over again with the result that in the evening hours I got the messge that this article isnt available anymore. I mean... what the fuck??? Thank you for this absolute waste of time, Barnes & Noble.
Maybe you should think about improving your webshop for next year if you wanna sell exclusives again.
A very disappointed customer.
PS: Ordered the pack now via @emp_de
... maybe they can do better! At least I didnt waste another 12 hours of my life ;) #funko #funkopop #funkofamily #funkolove #funkoaddict #sdcc #sdccexclusive #aragorn #arwen #popvinyl #collection #lordoftherings #funkomania #barnesandnoble #emp
