Things are changing over at Hasbro Toy Shop. If you've been to the shop in the last few days you've no doubt noticed a rather large image featuring everyone's favorite Decepticon law enforcer advertising some impending changes. The store will be going "under construction" after January 17, 2019, 11:59pm ET in preparation of a relaunch in February. Account's will still be active during this time for checking order status and whatnot, however the accounts will be deleted when the new site launches.

There are a few other details including instructions on how to use gift cards that can be found listed below.

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

I hope they add a preorder system so I don’t have to be up at like 5am just so I can buy the newest figures.

So who's hoping they restock the Siege deluxes at $10 before then :-?

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.

They don't seem to have Grimlock and Hun-Gurrr listed at the moment, which saddens me.
