some stuff sold out.


I figured the Dinobot and rock band sets would sell out before the Kreons, but maybe everyone is balking at the prices of the sets. They're charging a high premium for a cardboard mountain and some hot-glued scraps of fabric.

Grabbed the Kreons and the Dinobots. Will get the Rock Band dudes eventually, just couldn't stomach it on top of all the other stuff.

Doesn't surprise me the Kreon set sold out first. The price is incredible ($2 a Kreon, better than retail!) plus it's a great way for many to catch up without hunting them all down individually via eBay or wherever.

You know, I was all set to buy the Dinobots off ebay, but stopped myself. Glad I did so. I could do without the box (and the cost it undoubtedly added), but I really like the look of this set.

Yep, just got my Dinobot set; the Kreo set had already sold out so 1 out of 2 isn't bad.

It's a shame Hasbro don't care about anywhere but America with their shop :(

Just to note: when I tried to use Paypal it said I couldn't because they don't ship to Canada. But just using visa directly worked. So their Paypal is just set not to work for Canadians.

ScottyP make sure you call HTS Your order is probably on hold. You have to call their CS to release it.

No, they don't hate them, they just aren't the proper subsidiary/division of Hasbro that handles distribution in the European market, just North America. They should open up a .uk shop for the UK market (and they may have already). I doubt they'd carry these even if they had such a site though, since it is a North American exclusive due to the location of the convention (same reason we don't get Takara/Japanese exclusives over here in the US unless someone like the TFCC works out a distribution deal with ehobby or whoever).

Still, it would be nice if they did set aside some of the con exclusives for the other markets. I know I'd appreciate it if the Japanese exclusives were easier (and cheaper) to get without requiring me to pay the hefty import fees.

Calling them up preemptively does not release the hold, but they can put a note on the order that you've already called in when their automated systems hold it and await confirmation to try and expedite the process.

Just going off what the CS rep just told me. Basically, if you call them today, and you get an email later that it's on hold due to the dollar amount, just call in again.
