Loungefly Releases Highly Anticipated ‘Hocus Pocus’ Binx Mini Backpack and Many Aren’t Happy

Last night Loungefly announced that it would be releasing the highly anticipated ‘Hocus Pocus’ Binx mini-backpack today at 9AM PST/ 12 PM EST.  It was gone in under two minutes and people, myself included, are not happy.

I can’t speak to their issues, but I had it in my cart as soon as it showed up on the site. I went to check out and after going through the “I’m not a robot” captcha stuff I got told it was Sold Out.  We are talking less than a minute after it showed up for me.

Some lucky people got them, but many didn’t

Seems like I wasn’t the only one that had mine in the cart but got it sold out during checkout and capcha verification:

 

I saw a couple of people reporting they got through and their orders were cancelled:

Of course a bunch of them on eBay like always. I get that they are limited, but a lot of this could have been avoided by doing a pre-order window for a day or two. Then resellers wouldn’t have been as interested in the item.

I understand the frustration.
