    Just had a chat with Pulse re: our issue. At the very least we know the Unicrons weren’t lost or destroyed. I have hope in spite of everything.

    Maybe hasbro pulse oversold this like selling 500 tickets to a 300 seat event and now they are scrambling to cover their ass. The thought of this made me laugh.

    BTW I still haven’t received mine

    In this instance, even if something similar did happen, it would have been that they under-ordered, rather than oversold, since these were supposed to be made-to-order.

    This would be fine with me because it still means I’m getting one even if it’s late.

    If there were LESS Unicrons than anticipated, however, that would be really bad. Not only would we all have to buy aftermarket, the price would shoot up due to a smaller number of available units :x

    If you like transformer conspiracies, you should come to the FansToys thread on the 3p side. It's great.

    This thread seems kinda dead lately so I am gonna run with my outlandish conspiracy that hasbro is trying to cover their ass because they didn’t make enough unicron’s. Who is with me?

    The point I'm making is that no Unicron toys existed when the sales were being done. They were made after the orders had been taken. So if they didn't make enough (that is, "under-ordered" from the factory), THAT's the problem.

    The only way "oversold" works is if all those Unicron toys have been sitting on shelves for a year and a half, in contradiction to all those "making of" videos and updates we were getting all that time.

    I believe the issue is that the world reacted to an issue well outside the control of Hasbro, their factory, FedEx and the ports in California.

    Now things are a mess as a result.

    For Hasbro's part, I suspect that they anticipated the shipping not falling apart as it did. As such, they did what businesses would and moved inventory fast by shopping bulk orders to TFSource and ChosenPrime and Kapow figuring the other shipments would continue to arrive and that they would also be able to fill their own orders in proper time.

    Then, whatever happened and that shipment moved slower and there was a delay. Probably the same things that have happened which still results in supply shortages all over.

    Add to it that these places are bending over backward to adhere to whatever [situation beyond their control] guidelines the good state of California imposes upon them that hamper the process.

    Add to it FedEx has to pick up these packages which, I was told today, they haven't. No one knows or is telling why that is. I could speculate many reasons but none of them would resolve the issue to our benefit.

    I know the CS Team is as annoyed by this as we are and it appears that they can't get better answers either.

    Will the mistakes made this time be learned upon? Who knows. Hopefully the last three campaigns will move smoother.

    On another note, I was told that there are supposed to be units still available to service defective units as the need arises.

    Do not blame Haslab or Fedex for slower delivery... Global shipping right now is in chaos state due to pandemic, the number of flights and sea shipping are significantly reduced. It is not uncommon to receive your item 1-2 months late. Just bear with it.

    I got mine yesterday. It’s amazing.

    One thing though. I’ve got two of the same chin. The old Unicron double chin. Is this a common mistake? And dare I ask... will Hasbro send me a pronged chin replacement? Bought through Kapow in the UK...

    Not sure I've seen that issue. Can't see why Hasbro can't help out though. Not sure if you're better asking Kapow first or just going direct to Hasbro
