Nothing Changing at Hasbro Toy Shop, it Remains a Place for all Your Purchasing Needs

Postby william-james88 » Mon Dec 03, 2018 1:38 pm

This is technically just to say that there is absolutely nothing to see here. However, since it was brought up in the community, we just wanted to set the record straight.

Fans have found this message on the Hasbro Toy Shop FAQ sparking some worry:

At Hasbro, we strive to provide our customers with the best possible experience with our portfolio brands. As a valued customer, we wanted to let you know that our brand websites have changed and will no longer sell products directly. That said, you can still access your account and check existing orders using your login at Hasbro Toy Shop.


However, as it states, it is only from direct branding sites, like Transformers.com, which in the past had some items you could order directly like the first Studio Series toys.

We reached out to Hasbro just to see if we were undertanding clearly and this is what they told us:

It just means that you’ll need to go to HasbroToyShop.com to make purchases, as they will no longer be available on Transformers.Hasbro.com.


So, as always, Hasbro Toy Shop will be the main place for Hasbro to sell directly to customers, it wont be other peripheral brand sites. So basically, nothing changed and you can go back to enjoying life. And speaking of all the great stuff we can be happy about, a ton of next year's awesome Transformers output was on display at Tokyo Comic Con 2018, so check it out.

About two years ago they were running a sale on some combiner wars figures. The sale prices did not show up on shophasbro. I found out you had to click through transformers.hasbro.com to get the sale prices. That's the only reason I knew there were different landing sites.

Just an anecdote.

Just ordered Prime, Meg's, Sideswipe and Tread's on HTS since the dlx's were only 9.99 each plus 20% and free shipping for $68.

Then it dawned on me to grab Cog while I was at it. So I tried to go back in but now they're saying they're all sold out. But at least I got the 4 I really wanted.

....Well besides Shockwave.

PRAISE GOD. I’ve always found HTS to be a bit clunky in some regards. Hopefully this new site is much better designed.

I would not hold my breath. And in any case, the international shipping they have done to the past (like Canada) has never been worth it. Shipping an item usually doubled the price of your purchase.

The phrase "Curated Content" makes me pause, I'm not sure that's going to be something that a majority or vocal minority will be ok with. I get the feeling that certain products they won't have anymore.

I think they just mean it's going to continue being a Hasbro store and not expand past that. It would be interesting if Hasbro started to carry products from their licensees.

But the vocal minority isn't ok with anything, so just like the shop, standard operating procedure.

Speaking of not carrying, the Siege deluxes and voyagers disappeared again.

Has anyone ever had to call HTS? Their customer service is on point. My password bombed or I locked myself out and it wouldn't let me change it. I placed an order as a guest, called them a day or so later - got right to a person, reset my PW and had my guest order moved to my account. As long as they keep that up, I'm good.
