    It's a mess, but that's what happens to baby lines. They need to fail before they can succeed.

    Yeah. They changed that a couple of years back. Used to be they would price match or give a sale price if you asked after buying. Now you just have to buy another at the lower price and return it as the higher price. Costs them money in shipping and processing. Weird move if you ask me.

    They're probably hoping that having to preform the extra steps to get the refund will deter more people from bothering. And I'd be willing to bet it's actually saved them money because of that.

    I didn't know there was a face swap gimmick like how movie Primes rotate out their masks. That's pretty cool.

    At least the show itself is fun, most of the time.

    Maybe. Who knows. I think most people didn’t pay attention or ask for price matches anyway. My guess is the same people paying attention are the ones willing to go through the hoops to get the best price.

    Agreed, but even if it only deters say ten people that's still ten people they didn't have to give the discount to. Plus I think you underestimating how word of these prive reductions can spread on collector boards from the people paying attention to the ones that aren't. Those that hear about the price reduction through message boards are very well be less likely to utilize the current refund method rather than when all you had to do was ask for the difference to get a credit/partial refund.

    I couldn't sit through that slog. Ugh. I cannot get into this line for anything. I mean this genuinely when I say you couldn't pay me to own this line. (I'd feel guilty I used your money on garbage, and I'd also be miffed that it couldn't be used on something better.)

    Really? I mean, it's no Gokaiger, and it doesn't have a continuous plot, but it works quite well as a comedy Sentai show.

    I bet we are a drop in the bucket for this whole situation. I think the bulk of people that are wanting the best prices are just average folks buying normal things.

    Does anyone know if there are any differences between the original 90s release of Titanus and King Brachion. I know the stickers are different, but I was wondering if there were any other changes.
