    I've been charged, but mine still hasn't shipped yet. My DotM Optimus (which had the same release date) hasn't shipped either.

    FWIW, my credit card had sent me a new card in the interim between my order and when HasbroPulse was charging others (same number, but new expiration date = "rejected"), and so I got a message informing me of the problem. I corrected the issue that same evening, but they still haven't done a second go-round to charge my card yet.

    Hasbro Planning To Raise Toy Prices And Modifying For A Cost Cut - Transformers News - TFW2005

    "Hasbro is taking action to shift as much production out of China to other countries as possible ahead of this holiday season. About 67% of Hasbro’s merchandise is now sourced from China, down from 90% a few years back and 75% or so entering 2019. By the end of 2020, Goldner expects to have only 50% of Hasbro’s inventory reliant on China."

    Hasbro won't raise prices per line dependant on where pieces were manufactured because regardless of where the figure is produced, odds are that some part of the production process (packaging, warehousing, shipment, etc.) is in China, it will be across the board because that's the only way for the increases to amortize across all brands and keep the individual per piece increase lower. And the idea that "most Transformers are made in Vietnam" is irrelevant in this sense. These tariffs WILL drive a price increase on these products, even if they were removed tomorrow. I doubt we'll see $30 deluxes overnight (it won't go that high), but once Hasbro hits whatever price point they settle at (I expect it will be more than pennies per item), don't expect them to drop the prices even after this ridiculous "trade war" is over with.

    I'm not talking out my ass here, this is my job.

    ok, so if you actually read my whole post,
    A: it was in response to someone claiming deluxes would be $30 next year
    and
    B: I even said that if they spread the cost across all brands regardless of where manufacturing occurs then it'll likely be a negligible increase overall. hell unless you buy from pulse, amazon or brick and mortar you already pay higher prices anyway since stores like bbts charge $22 for a deluxe instead of $20

    I wasn't arguing with you whatsoever, just expanding on your thoughts for those that don't understand this whole situation.

    Jesus, lighten up, Francis...

    My Refraktor set pre-order hasn't shipped either, despite being charged, and despite the fact it it seems to be currently in stock on Pulse. Hopefully soon, though. I this is one I've eagerly been looking forward to.

    I got a notification from FedEx that I have a 2 lb package coming from Hasbro Pulse. Haven't got a thing from Pulse themselves though

    I didn't have any desire to get the MP10G Prime, but it still amazes me it sold out within 2 minutes...the other items I was on the fence about and they were in stock last time I checked. So between the free shipping and added day to get items if a majority of their memberships drop and just fight it out on avg person day sale, may be worth keeping Pulse Premium. They did only give us 1 $5 off coupon though all year, though. At least with Prime I get access to all their movies, tv shows, and music library as a bonus. Sigh...decisions. That $50 may get me an extra leader class figure.

    I think everything should be pulled from China imo... And yes I was able to get one! As someone who hasn't been keeping up lately I was so happy that I was able to snag one. Was creating my pulse account and then saw that mp10 was showing in stock, I clicked and purchased right away!!

    Oh I doubt we'll ever see a decrease in price ever. This is the new norm for all companies, try to gouge out as much as they can and see what the market will bear. It's sad. :S

    The reasons why those stores charge what they do is because Hasbro keeps upping the price to them, carrying Transformers is not making you money, the margin on them thanks to Hasbro being greedy is very very slim.

    thats not really a new norm, thats pretty much been the norm since the dawn of consumer goods

    no, those stores charge more because they are specialty stores that don't diversify the products they sell, otherwise walmart, target and amazon would all be more expensive than pulse as well. you pay a premium for shopping somewhere that is just a toy store

    I must be the only one who thinks that Hasbro Pulse actually got better since it first came out.
