That seems like a problem
Agreed, you should definitely contact them, mine arrived a while ago.
Do not know if this is a bad sign - it's no longer listed upon their shop for sale. You may wish to contact them.
Yeah, thanks. I contacted them and they said my order got messed up somehow and it was no longer available. Cancelled it and refunded me and gave me some credit on the app I'll never use again. At least I got refunded.
Damn that sucks to hear
Down to $55.00: J Balvin Mash-Up, J Balvintron 3-Pack
Still a hard pass
It's back up if you still have said credit & it's lower priced.
I wonder if they either 1) got more from the international allotment 2) released held stock for damages 3) are repackaging returned damages to try & keep selling them?
I would imagine they can't do a return to Hasbro due to the custom nature of the production.
$60 too much for me. EASY pass. Bleaugh.
Down to $50..tax and shipping included. Bought it just for the recolours of ravage/buzzsaw.
Well I'm jealous. Is there a discount code around? A way to get free shipping?
Wow. That sold like hotcakes, eh? Oh...
Showing me $49.23 with shipping within the USA.
41.25 + 13.95 shipping to me + taxes...so not cheap enough on clearance to justify another. 1 & done for me. No point of trying for resale market.
Strongly considered it for $50ish shipped for a bit, but I remembered I'm pretty sure I have a reissue Soundblaster (minus cassettes) somewhere, so I probably don't need this mold again, even if do love the tacky deco
Transformers x J. Balvin Voyager J. Balvitron Exclusive Figure
Now up for preorder at BBTS ($69.99)
It's not selling at $41.25 through NTWRK, it'll never sell at $70.00 through BBTS. I get that they have to make their money back, but this is betting on a busted horse, right here.
Don't get me wrong, I get that BBTS has to make money and get stock in, but some of their choices and decisions are part of the reason they're stuck with overstock and people going elsewhere to get their plastic crack fixes. (In terms of Transformers, at least.)
Agree for the most part, certainly with this figure. I thought I’d share what I saw, but personally I wouldn’t go near this release. That being said, I’m more inclined to critique the collaboration than how the toy stores are managing the overstock.
Oh, no. I'm glad you shared it, gives us conversation fodder here.
Agreed on the collaboration part. Did they learn nothing on the Linkin Park one? Heck, a lot of these ideas and exclusives are kind of bunk in the long run.
Device Label? Great at the time and seemed like a really fun idea, but, it made for wonky figures stuck with outdated technology baked in and the figures/designs have been updated and replaced in grand ways. More e-waste and plastic waste.
Linkin Park? Yuck.
Disney Label? Adorable, but, fragile and stupidly expensive.
I don't mind certain crossovers, such as the BTTF Gigawatt and GB Ectotron, those are long-standing fanwank that has finally come to life. No one asked for this collab. No one. (People did ask for functional tech Transformers and DL gave us that, but not the greatest in the end.)
I think exclusives, mainline, and Selects (with a few crossovers thrown in) are the best way to go. This J. Balvin garbage is not.
