Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

I am not interested in buying this Bee, but if it was a happy meal toy and there were other similar quality characters available, than I would probably be living off of McDs Happy Meals for awhile. My wife might question why everyone (adults and kids) has to get Happy Meals...

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

$27.99?


WOW.



Even $23.99 is really pushing it.


This looks like a budget Core figure packed with a sub-Micromaster level figure in Spike. Feels like $20 should be the absolute high end of the scale.


But then again we now live in a world where apparently Deluxes are moving to $33 and Voyagers to $45. So clearly Hasbro knows they've got our money no matter what they do.

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

unless we're talking Commandrons, cause they'll always be unofficial G1 to me, and now that Tomy is in the family. TakaraTomy needs to do a minty reissue set. Sigh. I'm paying double for stupid Spike n' Son. Probably keep 1 'bee, assuming I can find them.

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

I think my McDonalds Happy Meal comment probably should have been in the Venting thread.

Haven't purchased a McDonalds Happy Meal for my kids in many years, but yes the quality of the toys is awful, sadly it's just landfill filler.

Last time I got a toy from McDonalds would have been probably back in 2013 when Despicable Me 2 was released, those Minions toys were excellent quality! 2013 were the good times, when a Filet-O-Fish by itself was less than $4, real estate in Canada was affordable and my iPhone 5 was a kickass phone.

Getting back to this Buzzworthy Bumblebee set, it will definitely sell at regular retail price due to that Spike Exosuit.

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

Hasbro is fishing for suckers with that price. No thanks. The price hikes lately were enough, this is ridiculous.

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

This Bee/Spike pack is $14.99 US on Target.com. which is outrageously overpriced at TRU even with the exchange.

I dont think people know that Happy Meal TF toys have been non transforming with almost 0 articulation for over a decade.

Re: Transformers Buzzworthy Bumblebee Released in Canada

looks like a happy meal or dollarama quality crap, good thing I got the MP KO of this set which looks completely legit.

Commandrons have more appeal than this weak attempt. Why are the toy manf lowering the quality on their lines, (at least the retro ones) they are flushing sales down the toilet if they keep this up.
