    And... That's £180 I won't see the fruits of for at least another year.

    Trust me I feel it too! I have ligament and micro muscle tear issues due to repetitive motion so I get tightness in my arms and hands which causes nerve to act up. I also have gray hair now too, and only turned 35. Soon it’ll be time for a dirt nap

    Boy howdy they didn't waste time charging me. That's good though- take the hit and get it over with.

    This is one hobby it’s encouraged not to tell your parents about.

    You have no idea how pending works... its not a pre authorization.

    You can go to a restaurant, eat food and enjoy drinks, tally the bill and include a tip... go home, and your account will most times say "pending", even for as much as 3 days afterwards... that money is gone, just not fully transfered to the charging party.

    You should know this by now. ;)

    If i get cancelled again im gonna be so mad. They provided zero explaination, didnt bother to offer me a solution. Also 24k backers and hasbro really thought this product wouldnt sell. God what assholes. Thats 24k plus who knows how many people who would have bought it if it were not a backer only purchase. Instead they overprice the damn thing and bully us into funding it. May as well make all combiners backer only purchases as well.

    This whole thing is scummy. I can understand unicron. Hell i never backed it because its too big, has problems i dont like and too expensive of course. They could have sold victory saber as 2 diff figures and because kids dont even know most of the mainline characters they bought would have bought it, collectors would have bought it, parents who dont know shit anyway would have bought it because it looks cool too.

    We need to stop enabling hasbro yall. Stop backing up their lame excuses. Distribution is bad enough already plus all their exclusives. This hobby is getting too fomo predatory and dont just think about the US market please.

    Did Zavvi cancel your order or Hasbro? Which thing is scummy? Hasbro's excuse for what? Hasbro has operations in several markets, it's pretty much impossible to unify them since demand and demographic vary wildly market to market.

    Not to play devils advocate, ESPECIALLY for hasbro of all things, but

    1. Almost no one outside of diehard collectors or readers of the idw comics know who star saber is, kids would probably want another optimus prime or megatron compared to this guy, hell they would've thought this was optimus himself. The age range for this is 16 and up too. And with the stuff coming with his kit and all the gimmicks and shit, I'm not surprised the did a crowd funding, if they did a regular retail we would've probably gotten a worse version or a qc issued mess so, meh.

    2. You're really asking people to not buy transformers or hasbro stuff on this forum? That's like asking twitter to be sane or normal for 5 minutes, it ain't gonna happen lmao.

    Same here, to me “3rd party” aren’t Transformers, so I have no interest in them.
