For those of you who were hoping to get your Transformers Collectors' Club subscription figures soon have a little longer to wait. A message posted on the front page of the club states the first figure is pushed back to late April/early May due to an internal issue at Hasbro.

We apologize that it has taken so long to get back to all of you concerning the first ship date, but we have been waiting on our confirmation. There was an internal issue at Hasbro that has caused the figures' ship date to slip a fair amount. As of this week, Hasbro is telling us to expect the figures in late April/early May. We are sorry for the delay. Please know that we are pushing as hard as we can to get them here.

We will keep you updated and appreciate your patience!

I'm on the installment plan and need more time to save up, so this is actually good news to me...

...UNLESS the issue with Hasbro involves them having to scrap a character's likeness or something, though I don't see what that could be. I remained as active a fan as I could throughout the '90s and therefore know GREAT patience, so as long as we get 'em eventually...

I'm now extremely curious as to what this "internal issue" is with Hasbro.

Legit issue, or FunPub passing the buck?

I wish this delay would mean they will reopen subscriptions for additional customers. I had some major stuff to take care of when they first announced it and had to say oh well. But now I could pay for it in one payment. :/

I am NOT paying the crazy stupid prices for these figures on BBTS, ebay, etc. Eff that lol.

Knowing FunPub, passing the buck.

That being said ... "internal issue" = Hasbro debating whether or not to cut the licensing agreement with them sooner rather than later.

Probably the number of units exceeding/failing to meet expectations. If FunPub announces the club subscription figures as available elsewhere (like BotCon or as retailer exclusives) later on, they may have had more extra stock than Hasbro was counting on.

Totally weird considering these are just retools/redecos of existing molds.

Not to mention the prices were already off the chart. Most of them are pretty cool, but not cool enough to justify the club prices, much less the BBTS prices.

Until this issue yesterday I was somewhat regretting not buying them with the subscription. Now, with all the 3d Party awesomeness in the last few weeks I am really glad that I didn't bother with them.

TFCC....delaying something...AND passing blame??!! :BOOM: :BOOM:

My mind can't comprehend this, they are so trustworthy. LOL good thing I didn't pre-order any of these, and I feel bad for the people that did because now the slippery slope starts.

Ask yourself... is it REALLY a delay when everyone was probably already expecting these to be delayed, anyhow, given TFCC's track record of incompetence? With this announcement, TFCC is just catching up to everyone's expectation.

Seems pretty much par for the course for TFCC, as far as I'm concerned.

That's... really bad. We will not see a refund for a long time (if ever), and there's no telling what would happen to the yet unreceived Blaster/Soundwave SG set that is already paid in full.

If Hasbro does cancel the contract, then getting us refunds/toys damn well better be part of the settlement agreement.
