I figured it would sell out in about 10 seconds. All the numbers were probably given in the first 5.

The server problems experienced by the online retailers when they are selling something hot like this sure makes for a happy customer, doesn't it?!

Oh, I'm sure the 1000 people got it! I don't think it's a scam, there are thousands upon thousands of people trying to get this thing at the same time.

We need proof that someone actually got this deal. Check out any forum and see if someone got it and aren't bs'n to get people pissed. Lets see the receipt.

No reason to get up set. You have to realize that there were probably hundreds of thousands of people trying to get these within seconds. It was more like a lottery than a sale.

How on earth could you accomodate 1000 orders in 1 minute. I can't imagine the technology behind that.

My page has been loading for the past 11-12 minutes. I've been watching the site speed since 10 minutes to 2 (EST), and it locked up about 1-2 minutes before it was set to launch. I don't think anyone could have gotten in on this due to the server overload.

This really stinks for those of us that just want the Barbie!


I noticed on the main page at Amazon--where the voting takes place--that they were offering a good deal on the Barbie, and all of the other non-winning items, even though they were not the vote winners. Of course, since I still can't load the page, I don't have any details on it.
