    I am sure his point is that it’s not part of the price. Hasbro isn’t any more responsible for the cost of socialism in the UK as they are in bankrupt US states’ sales tax.

    Agreed but it was done all wrong
    Felt like this was not a major company coming out with a high end exclusive crowd fund. It felt like the MMC fort max crowd fund that was rushed and would have been successful if it was thought out and not rushed , thus the extended date

    I understand, but I typically include tax when I pay for something. I do realize there are 4 US states that do not charge sales tax, but most do. In Europe however, there's no getting out of it. My point is there's no point excluding something if you have to pay for it. It does not make things cheaper.

    I agree with this. I feel this could have been a walk in the park seriously. They did the Kapow thing almost at the last minute. They didn't bother doing any solicitation in many countries. If this had been a global thingy, pretty sure this could have been done in a month, no extension required.

    Doubtful. It would kind of price at least half of the current customers out of TFs now wouldn't it? And just because who is left can afford a $300 Titan doesn't mean they can make up the difference for the crap ton of other people who now can't afford one. Plus of the people who could afford one, some won't buy one for a variety of reasons anyway. Hasbro would lose more money that way, and I'd like to think they know that else they would have collapsed as a company about 10 years ago.

    I wouldn't worry.

    Again shows hasbro they could not sell this lemon to people so they have to continue to find ways to sell it if they let it alone on aug 31 it would never got made

    final note by building this one you told hasbro take my money don\'t be surprised if the the next titan cost extra 150 more on top of  cost  from were we payed for omega supreme

    Yes that makes sense but wait since metroplex was made it’s gone up each year and the quality has gone down in how it’s build but yet we buy still and that’s where hasbro knows it’s time to raise the price again

    LOL............. We've heard for a month now that a store was buying 200 extra......... thats not organic.. Hendr told us over a month ago. if you think most of us give one sh*t .. or half of one .. you're insane because we just want our freaking orders of unicron. If a store or hasbro wants to eat the cost of a few hundred....... please for the love of the lord of chaos... DO IT

    Why would you care?

    What if there are only 7000 who want it? Why would you care if Hasbro put their thumb on the scale in order to give those people what they want?

    I would hope to believe there are well over 8000 who want it, it's just there might not be 8000 people who can afford it, yeah?

    I actually agree with this. Also disallow cancellations. This "fandom" is filled with #FakeFans. "Stores should be forced to eat a ton of cost, but yours truly is SPECIAL, yours truly should be allowed to do whatever including cancelling at the very last minute". F that sh**. You want to get this done or not. Last minute emergency? Tough. Leave that kind of virtue signalling to #snowflakes.

    @Hasbro, this is a lesson, next time around just charge upfront. None of this "we believe in our fans" crap.

    Well personally I'm officially out of the Titans game once Scorponok is released, so really I don't care what they charge for Titans after that.

    Companies don't work like a democracy. Did you get a say in electing the CEO? No. Stop that BS already.
