    making you buy a soundwave to get a buzzsaw is as old as the franchise itself

    there couldn't be a stronger precedent

    happy 40th anniversary!

    "Give me an example that proves your point but it has to follow these very strict conditions"
    ... Well...
    The one selects cassette pack was released in the past four years and sold out.
    SS86 cores have all sold well from what I've seen. The prices for frenzy and rumble show this. So for them, it is not a sales thing. The only ones that seem to struggle are the stupid rock and fossil cores.
    It's not about sales. It's about profit. They found they can screw the consumer and pull more profit this route. Simple as that.
    And seriously, don't be a corporate apologist. Cock(face) made $10 million in 2022. He doesn't care about you and I guarantee his 2023 salary isn't going to be less after their "hard times" and needing to raise prices.

    they should really do a soundblaster version in the future and his cassettes should be garboil howlback and enemy.

    I still think Enemy should be packed with Nighstalker. If the Core class is going away, then Nightstalker would end up in the class void unless he’s packed with something else, and there aren't many appropriate options.

    One thing I wish they altered on this mold which will obviously never happen is the placement of the notches in the front piece in alt mode so that it doesn't pull the sides of the alt mode forward.

    Honest mistakes can be made by Hasbro, but this just not seems to be the case here
    Reference of what exactly?
    This is just another toy line if they choose to make rumble blue in this case, then that’s their choice.

    Not that I necessarily like it. I prefer my rumble red…… It seems they’re taking ques from the studio 86 line

    ...and it's usually something small and pointless. Like, when have we had this many options for the cassette version of Soundwave? Be happy we have options! You don't have to buy ALL of them!

    Do you open your figures or keep them sealed? If you're a MISB collector, then I could see your frustration. But loose, who cares? He could be called Poopie McFarty Pants for all I care. I know he's based on the G1 Frenzy toy and when I open him, that's who he'll be to me.

    Hey, am I the only one who doesn't have a problem with the forearm bits? Because I could easily repurpose them as arm-mounted tasers.

    WTH? how do you want to get profits without sales?

    It’s not about sales. It’s about profit?

    Except a Hasbro rep said this was Rumble “in toy colors”, cited earlier in this thread. So that’s either a miscolored Rumble or a mislabeled Frenzy. Take your pick.

    IMO the only good part of the set is Buzzsaw, and I’m not spending $55 just for him.

    The implication in my comment and related context was directed towards core class and the conversation there of. The discussion of sales in relation to the possible cancelling of the core class was the topic.

    As such, my comment was that the core class being phased out was not related to sales; i.e. hasbro's decision was not based upon sales but instead profit.

    Also, grand scheme of things, in business it is not sales but profit anyway. You can sell 100 units and make $1 profit per unit and have higher sales. You can sell 1 unit and make $1000 profit for it and have higher profit. They are related but vastly different. Hasbro, especially of late, appears to go full board down the profit road anyway.

    I think I'll keep the buzzsaw and sell the rest for 40$ that sounds fair right?
