I'm shocked and appalled by all the entitlement babies that have come out to have a cry because of the pricing error. Did you really think you were going to be able to order a £100 figure for a third of the price? Upon seeing this listing and the incredibly low price I was hesitant so I called Amazon UK's customer service number (0844 545 6508) and inquired. It was only after I directed the lady to google's shopping page showing her that the figure sells for anywhere between £100-£170 did she acknowledge something was off and that she would inform her supervisor. I even called Hasbro to double check and while I didn't get a department that handled Amazon.Uk I was told that MP-10 would never be sold for that low of a price by any retailer and there were no active discounts for it. They suggested I should not place an order and they would let the appropriate parties know of the mistake.
I can understand if you were in a store, the item was on the shelf mis-priced, in the system wrong, and you brought it to the checkout when it scanned for higher. Most stores honor the lower price. But this is an ONLINE STORE and Amazon to boot. They change prices all the time. Someone may have thought it was a Weaponizer Prime, or maybe entered in their net price instead. You didn't drive to a store and get turned down after waiting 10 minutes in line, you clicked a button. All online retailers can change their prices if a mistake has been made and it doesn't cost you anything.
What the majority of people complaining fail to realize is that if they did honor the pricing mistake the loss doesn't just magically go away. A huge loss like that would force either Amazon or Hasbro, perhaps both to raise prices because their board members aren't going to accept a loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars just like that. We'd see price hikes on other items we buy and everyone ELSE would end up paying in the long run for the cheap Mp-10 YOU purchased. I'm sorry but I wasn't going to just sit on my thumbs and let scalpers and entitlment babies get away with that.
If it seems to good to be true on Amazon then call them first and confirm. This will save you a major headache later and keep prices low for everyone.
