    I hope with a raised price that what's expected will not sell as fast.

    Should’ve been the Voyager cat, though they probably would have him be $80.

    They better have more quantities if thats the case. These Paywalls are a scalpers privilege so Ha$bro not gonna stop any of that shit with this price hike.

    That should be all our Pulsecon Exclusives, unless there is something planned for Ghostbusters.

    Wow Hasbro. I was mulling over picking up the already overpriced Seacons, and Hasbro bumped up the prices on most (but not all?) of them literally within the last 48 hours:

    The Deluxes went from $34.99 to $36.99, while the Voyager went from $55.99 to $62.99. I was already hesitant to pull the trigger on these figures given they were literally double the cost of the Terrorcons they're based off of, but now I refuse to reward bumping up their prices even higher. It's a real shame.

    They also bumped up Abominus to $199.99 from the ~$185 it was previously:

    I guess they're expecting an increase in new customers with SDCC and hoping to squeeze more cash?

    Ugh, Ravage at $53 is reallyyyy pushing it for a delixe that barely transforms and a G1 Cassette in fancy packaging.

    I'll probably get it, but I will complain all the way!! :D :p

    Shipping from overseas has gone up in price, hence the reason for the increases, and the Seacons were more expensive than the original Terrorcons because they're imports from Takara and not actually Hasbro product.

    I was aware of the fact that these are imports, but this also appears to be a part of a broader price increase on Hasbro Pulse. All of the leaders are now $52.99 where they were $49.99, and voyagers $31.99 from $29.99, and this is within the past 48 hours.

    EDIT - Also core figures bumped from $9.99 to $10.99, and the Netflix spoiler pack bumped from $59.99 to $62.99. So basically all Transformers had their prices bumped on Hasbro Pulse.

    Uh... no. More on that in a sec.

    This. Plus, these are so retooled and reshelled that while they may be based on the Terrorcons, they're pretty much brand new figures. There are a lot of new pieces on here and the hands and feet are brand new molds as well. Too many people think like you and get the wrong impression of these figures. Had they been simple repaints or something along those lines, I could see your complaint but after having them in hand...no. These are worth the asking price. You can skip 'em if you want, but late tax will bite you in the butt later if you decide to go after them down the road. Guess it'll be a teachable moment then, won't it?

    That price increase most likely relates to the rising cost of shipping goods from overseas.

    $53 for a deluxe and a cassette they just reissued for $10? Are they high?

    Well. I was going to get that Ravage set. Now...not so much.

    Still in for the remaining two seacons at the increased price, but everything else? No.
