Re: First 2 Genertions Selects Seacons @ Hasbro Pulse

Not worth it at that price for me, unless there is a cheaper place to buy then I'll wait for the inevitable ko.

Have we seen straight KOs of all the other CW or POTP combiners?

Re: First 2 Genertions Selects Seacons @ Hasbro Pulse

Yeah, I'm sorry for the whining, but $55 for a deluxe figure that used to sell for about $25 like a year ago is getting a little insane to me. Am I the only one feeling that way?

Regardless of it being a "Takara import" and all. In fact, as it's been said, aren't all Hasbro TF products "Takara Imports"? This is just a lame excuse for quite the price jump.

I absolutely get they are specialty items, but IMO, it should not justify the 100% mark up...

Re: First 2 Genertions Selects Seacons @ Hasbro Pulse

everytime something comes out as takara mall exclusive, they get you with the extra $$$. I remember UW03 Defensor set was like $230 shipped, UW01-02 was 170 and Hasbro ones can be had for 120. it sucks, but has been like this for long time. price increase and weaker CAD$ doesn't help either.

They're marking up MP-48 (who is 16159 JPY on Amazon JP) on HasbroPulse by at least 32 USD, so obviously these 2 are also marked-up as well.

That price definitely hurts. I wish Hasbro had released the Seacons under their own label at the regular price or even as Generations Selects releases, and let Takara release BWII versions as exclusives.

Where does it say its their exclusive?
They usually write the word "exclusive" when its exclusive to a specific retailer so that consumers understand why the price is so high (which is the case here with TTMALL).

plus 1200 yen shipping and if you factor in conversion fee from the cc or paypal then you’re looking at 225 cad for that sailor moon looking lion face.

I agree that piranacon is pushing the price point on mainline figures, exclusive or not

It's really odd this isn't being done as a box set.
