Postby kuhlio » Fri Jun 28, 2024 10:42 am

This week on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast, host Scotty P is joined by Megatronus, Aaarnhide19, and Kuhlio step up the the mic to record the wildest promo ever. Listen as these gladiators of the squared circle ring the bell and try to pin down the news from the past two weeks. Oh, and talk about Transformers too. It's mostly that, we promise.

Episode #353 “Fractured Friendship is Magic” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts and many other Podcatcher sites within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Here's what we discuss in this episode:
  • Core Class has ended, and the cast discusses where the price point flew high and when it sunk like a rock.

  • Did we just become best friends? Just in time for the podcast IGN has revealed the upcoming SDCC "Fractured Friendship" consisting of Gladiator Megatron and Security Officer Orion Pax. Marvel Legends also become a talking point as the SDCC exclusive list includes a 6" Death's Head as well.
    Image
  • The recurring "40 for 40" segment which takes a look at all 40 years of Transformers reflects G1 Season 3 as we reflect on the year 2010.

  • Finally, bragging rights finishes up this episode.

Motto: "Illumination through acceleration!"

I think core class with the market the way it is now has to be a loss leader and I don't think Hasbro is into that right now. With the way they abandoned the size class after CW and 3p filled in the gap with better. Hasbro isn't making a $40 mini-MP at that scale. But there's also not a market for $10 of that size. No collector wants it and kids don't care and it's also the same price as a TMNT figure or 2 packs of pokemon or a dinosaur. Those figures at $5 would bring people in, but Hasbro's not in a position for a loss leader right now. It has to die right now, even though the old legends got me back into collecting and the RiD minis are just great toys.

I was thinking about not doing pulse premium and then death's head shows up as an sdcc exclusive the week after my premium runs out. I don't know if it'll sell or not, it's weird. Seems like it's not too bad to get a 3.75.

So my views on what Hasbro did with the price point have been tainted again. I just got the Dr Wu Galvatron from BBTS. For $30 I got 2 core sized figs- both are incredible. If Dr Wu can do this at the size class and his company scale to create great figures at $15 a piece--- what's going on in Providence?
