    Group buy for Windcharger will be harder since there's only 2 of 12 per case and the news is that HTS is canceling preorders.

    The deluxe case, I dunno. Do we have anybody on this board who can directly buy from Hasbro? Where do the comic/toy store owners go to buy their stuff?

    I know Dragonclaw has a comic store but I think he has to resort to hasbrotoyshop.com in order to get his figures in. I think you have to order an insane amount of figures before you can get wholesale prices from Hasbro.

    A shop, a permit, a liscence, a company, money and an adress to sell the item.

    Ya but, not trying to place one order, I would like to have access to good prices for future wave releases as well. Ive got a number at hasbro Im gonna call tommorow for inquiries regarding carrying retail product in your store. A longshot but Ill still call and ask nonetheless what the requirements are for a minimum order.

    What do u mean by good prices? You won't get figs for less than 12 at a very minimum. You can buy a case from BBTS, or other online retailers. Thats the closest you will get to getting a case from hasbro.

    frankly, having posted a sales ad asking who needed a warpath, TC or kup or scourge or wheeljack out of a warpath case i ordered...and i was charging $16 for the regular tfs and $20 for warpath. basically retail price plus shipping of $8 for priority mail...

    1/2 the folks that commited then decided to back out...or just never recontacted me after i sent payment info.

    so if anyone wants to waste your time organizing a group buy...good luck with that.

    mine first group organized buy turned into a one time experience i am not going to repeat...next time the case remains gets tossed onto ebay.

    think about it for a sec, like some one already said, hasbro wholesale only deals with legit retailers with store/license/permits/funds and i imagine even then you'll need to order them by truck load of mixed toys/cases of not just transformers to qualify for wholesale. some one who owns a shop, even if it just a hobby, is still running a business that needs healthy profits to stay afloat.

    the shop owner might give you some slight discounts if you purchased alot in one order or if you're a personal friend. other than that, no one's gonna give you the wholesale 'good price' because then there'd be no profit for the business. to get even slightest discounts you'll have to wait until retailers put the overstocks on sale or trying to get lucky on auction that ends in ungodly hours the snipers somehow missed. or start a retail business yourself.... not sure if the wholesale department would even speak with you unless you have your business licenses/permits upfront.

    Why did you make Warpath more expensive than the others? They're all Generations deluxes?

    probably because there's only 1 or 2 per case of 8, and warpath is hot item right now.

    Even if you are a direct business selling them like a hobby shop, or comic shop, from talking to a few owners, the prices arnt that great unless you are doing significant volume. The comic shop down priced waves like BBTS does (turds lower, high demand figs higher) and still ended up discontinuing to carry Transformers cause there was no money to be made. Not really comparing it completely to BBTS, because they do significant volume, but unless you are ordering cases upon cases, upon cases it is not gonna be practical.

    because he goes for lots more than what i was asking...plus after shipping on that case my cost per figure was maybe $2 to $3 below the asking price...and the fact that warpath is harder to get/find.

    If you want to do case buys, your best bet is to find someone with a POL ready to ship at BBTS. That way you save shipping. BBTSs full case prices tend to be very reasonable. I recently ordered a case to split with some fellow members at my cost. It didn't end up being much more than retail+shipping. Everyone paid ahead of time and it's been a pleasant experience. Honestly, you're just not going to do much better on a case than BBTS.
