Re: Hasbro Revenues and Why Exclusives Aren't Going Anywhere

The real problem is that Hasbro is churning out nothing but exclusives. Is there even a mainline anymore? It certainly doesn't feel like it.

Exclusives were fine when they would account for only...

Re: G.I. Joe Classified Heavy Artillery Roadblock Pre-Orders Live!

No, that was the sad part... those 2 packs never made it here but you could obviously ask a friend in the US if you know someone, to grab them for you.

Me, I had to pay $50 to get that Gung-Ho off...

Re: G.I. Joe Classified Heavy Artillery Roadblock Pre-Orders Live!

Huh? Hasbro redid Gung-Ho with the light blue vest for the 50th anniversary 2 pack.

Re: Star Wars Online/Pre Order Sightings Thread

Officially the price hike on all Hasbro stuff comes in August (although some items are going to stay the same price for retail, but the wholesale cost will go up for the store. I'm sure the store...

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

I don't think that Archive Obi-Wan even has a new head sculpt, it's just photoreal and they thankfully fixed that stupid reddish hair color problem.

I agree, I was thinking that they'd include a...

Re: G.I. Joe Classified Heavy Artillery Roadblock Pre-Orders Live!

Artificial scarcity makes toy collectors panic and buy at full price, no waiting for sales and clearances. Just make a product that you know the adults want, something nostalgic like classic...

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

I already gave up on most SW 6-inch. Hasbro and TRU have turned toy collecting (and even now pre-orders) into a Hunger Games event... good luck to those still willing to put up with this bullcrap.

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Do a search for Star Wars and the 4 links do show up. Just searching for black series for some reason does not call up the 4 exclusives in the results (I did that initially)

This is Toys R Us Canada's website. No one should expect them to get this right nor do it on time.

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Well Boba was also part of the last 25% off SW sale too, but conveniently TRU didn't get him into stock until after the sale and of course, now he isn't even part of the current 20% off sale.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation ? ReAction Figures Wave 1 by Super7

Thank you Rock, I hope they do solicit through the Previews catalogue then, as Snail is too far for me.

Nice to hear they are moving back to Queen Street, they never should've left. Hopefully...

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation ? ReAction Figures Wave 1 by Super7

Is there an affordable way to order these from Canada?

I vaguely recall that the previous Super7 stuff you had to buy off their website and the shipping was some ridiculous cost if you wanted to...

Re: Marvel Legends discussion

It's not really a pre-order system, it's a lottery and you win if you actually get the thing that you pre-ordered! :D

Re: Marvel Legends discussion

The only problem is that Transformers have also been getting quite a bit more expensive. But probably better value when compared to Marvel Legends and Star Wars though.

Re: Star Wars Online/Pre Order Sightings Thread

Man, $38 for Darth Maul, and no accessories other than his sabre. That's a tough one to swallow even after the Edge discount. This figure should be $33 - 10% and even then, it's a kitbash of mostly...

Re: Star Wars Online/Pre Order Sightings Thread

My point to you and those that say "just accept it" is that people don't have to. They call this hobby plastic crack for a reason... it becomes very addictive to get your regular fix, and especially...

Re: Star Wars Online/Pre Order Sightings Thread

This is true. The sought-after toys don't last long on the shelves or online (see: many store-exclusives) although the stuff that Hasbro gets wrong will just stick there like molasses on the wall...

Re: Marvel Legends Retro 3.75 Collection Figures Released in Canada

This is why collectors shouldn't support them (not at this pricepoint anyway). I used to buy a lot of the Reaction stuff when they were under Funko and more affordable.

Now, even though I...

Re: Star Wars Online/Pre Order Sightings Thread

Well I guess that makes "sense" in that the new regular retail price is $32 or $33, and exclusives wind up being charged an extra $5 to $10 over regular retail.

I was thinking about getting...

TRU seems to have tons of deluxe Armors, but never Mando and Child. Sheesh.

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

If that Qui-Gon came with a cloak, then maybe he'd be worth $32.99, but at $38, I'm slowly getting out of this hobby. Disney's getting way too greedy.
