    This is why I stopped collecting. And this is the state of the world today. Companies so happy with the money they are making while not worrying at all how their customers feel about their experience that they don't bother to look at the profits they might reap if they actually took an interest in customer relations and service.

    Nothing is going to change until more people make their voices heard via corporate contact and voting with their dollar.

    Well, let's see...

    They could treat their customers well and sell out in 4 minutes, or...

    they could treat their customers poorly and sell out in 6 minutes.

    Ouch, that costs a lot of money!

    They lose nothing...they will all sell out. What exactly are you referring to as "shitty CS"?

    Not on mine. We can hold out hope that something's coming though...

    I wish the damn thing would go away, it just keeps taunting me ever 20 seconds when my screen refreshes.

    My local comic shop just posted photos of the SDCC exclusives they brought back from comic con. Tempted to just go down there and pay whatever markup they want.

    And every single one of us that clicks through to buy their shit aren't part of the problem, we are THE problem. But again, I'm just here to get a Kreo set for my kids and hopefully scalp a Magic set to pay for it. I hate these companies but I hate collectors nearly just as much.

    I feel like this is Hasbro's take on how HTS is running the exclusives..."for all you people waiting & camping...it is our fault our communication system lacks, but it's your problem now...so deal with it!" WTF HTS!!!...anyone else feels like the chick with turrets in Duece Bigalow lol

    None and Nope. Scalpers are gonna scalp. Not to mention we're all still sitting here and they will sell out like every year.

    It's the same every year. We all piss and moan and fiend. Then we get our plastic fix and feels sooo good. Then next year comes around... We're all just chasing the dragon.

    I don't understand your issue. MTG, Star Wars and TF products are all widely available to purchase at retail via brick & mortar, and an array of online retailers. But because once a year, we are offered limited number convention exclusives at retail price via HTS, we throw a fit because they didn't offer them within the first 4 days of the end of the convention? Sad.

    I agree 100% that Hasbro Toy Shop's execution of exclusives needs to be handled in a more efficient manner, but to say you give up on these products because we have to wait a few days for them is just rediculous

    Knowing my luck, i'll go down to the shop only to find out they are charging ebay prices. Then i'll get back and everything will be up but sold out. I'll just assume that and sit here.
