Great price! Who doesn't want to pay $37 each for old deluxe modes, two of which are the same thing in this set?

Great work, Hasbro! This is how you do it right!

Re: Platinum Editon Planet of Junk Set Released in Canada

I mean, 80 would be too much, but understandable (out of stock molds, "premium".)

It's pointless to complain about Platinum at this point. I just wonder when the message will get through. Does it even impact Hasbro once TRU places their orders? We've watched every single Platinum release go on clearance for the past year and a half. Shitty King Starscream, to the crap still shelf-warming now, even YOTH Prime didn't sell that well and went on clearance.

So for TRU, they're getting rid of all these toys, IF they can, for well under the RRSP. They can't be making money. Does it matter to Hasbro? Seriously, how does this work? TRU gets fucked and Hasbro laughs? Until TRU stops ordering TFs?

But somehow I doubt TRU corporate understands what TFs are likely to sell and what won't, but I don't really know how they place orders.

Ouch!
$107 has got to be one of the highest price sets (per figure) that we've seen.
Pretty hard for me to justify

I got Junkheap and Black Shadow at a liquidation store for around ten each.
