And it's now sold-out. How a preorder can be sold-out?

They probably already made them and made a set number.  This isn't like Super7 who do preorders and then make the product.  Hasbro most likely already made them, as seen by the one they opened during last week's Instagram livestream. 

There is a chance they'll make more,  but not likely.  The other hope is that they have more set to arrive, but they won't put them up until they have them confirmed somewhere.  It's weird though since they are targeting November 1st as the release date.  Also the SS/SE 2 pack sold out originally, and then they somehow had more and it was back up for sale on Hasbro Pulse until it sold out again during their recent 40% off sale.  Also, also, there is a high likelihood that some orders will be cancelled, either by the customer, or through payment problems, so there is that to keep an eye on as well.

The one thing that bothers me is the price.  How is the Stinger and Driver cheaper than the 2 packs?  $42 for the 2 packs and $34 for the Stinger and Driver?  Crazy.

I suspect the Stinger tooling probably still exists since it was still around in 2009 and maybe later(?), where as the tooling for the 2 pack trooper/officer are probably completely new tooling.

Totally bummed that I missed out on this. I have been busy the last couple months so I didn't even know this was going on till today.
