Hasbro’s Tariff Debacle

Here’s an interesting read regarding how tariffs are affecting the toy industry: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/hasbr...132801521.html

Mind you, it’s mainly from the US perspective. ... Yet a lot of what happens there has a tendency to trickle on over to us as well

One part in particular stood out to me; “If the tariffs drive up the price of toys, Hasbro expects consumers will buy fewer of them – or buy cheaper, potentially unsafe toys instead.”

Just curious of others thoughts & perspectives as to what the future may hold for the cost and/or availability of our beloved plastic bots.

Hopefully, we’re not clamouring for the good ol’ days of a $30 deluxe in the coming months

Fortunately for us, most of the Transformers are now made in Vietnam.
