Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from yesterday's Fan First Friday, fellow Seibertron users, Blackeyedprime and Callum Martin, have let us know that the revealed Centurion Drone and weapon pack will be exclusive to In Demand Toys for those in the UK. He is priced at £30. They have Pre-Orders open now for him and state he'll start shipping in August.

Centurion is a redeco of Siege Brunt, whose design was inspired by Centurion from the IDW miniseries Transformers: Stormbringer. The weapons pack features a host of G1 nods, like Sideswipes jet pack, Prime's roller, and Megatron in his G1 Gun form, waiting for Starscream to come along and wield him.

No order limits either which is cool but ones enough for me, lots of accessories for figures I dont have :) the tiny optimus might get used as an oscar (but even then it may be too small) kinda weird that it is to with unicron when he was taking a nap at the time.

Oh like you wouldn't be paying $30 or more buying half that from third parties, instead of the extra $10 it is here.
Are you talking about them not including the additional accessories with the figures to begin with? That's just the same cheaping out on CHUG accessory counts for the sake of uniform profit margins that they've been doing since Classics began in 2006. This is the first time they've offered any official option to supplement that, and these accessories were almost certainly created after the molds were cut, in response to fan demand.

Or are you just annoyed at the weapons only being sold with the Centurion drone instead of on their own?

I'm always expecting Bee to burp in that gif :-?

@Zerohour these extras are the things that plastic limits denied us, so the fact we're getting them at all is good. Certainly easier then trying to get the company to revise business practices and allowances

Oh yeah
I hate HATE that stupid game as well!

Studio Series Soundwave
NO GUNS!?

Combiners?
Gotta fix the hips, get decent feet, no gun, no sword

Dinobots
Too small, some have guns but no sword, others swords no guns! No gestalt weapon.

Predaking
No sword!?

everything that came out in the last four or five years
It seems like an agreement with the kit upgraded makers that if :HASBRO: Leaves out something, you guys will make up for it, right?!

:BANG_HEAD: =P~ :BOOM:

"Last four or five years"? What part of since 2006 did you not understand? :roll:

And for fuck's sake, it's not them deliberately trying to bilk us. Get over it already. The limited accessories has been a thing for as long as CHUG has existed, because Hasbro has always been about uniform profit margins on figures. It's the same reason mold hollows happen. Most fans are aware of this, have managed to get this through their heads that that's just how it works. And in the past couple years, we've been saying "You're only going to give each figure so many accessories because of plastic limits? Fine, we get it. So how about selling packs of weapons then?"

That's
what this pack is in response to. And $10 for that many weapons is much more bang for buck than you get buying 3P.

totally agree. I am totally fine to have preordered it, and I sincerely hope this will start to be an habit.

CHUG relies mainly on people's fondness for a cartoon, comic, and toys from 35 years ago, so it's always had harsher plastic limits for new molds than the lines fueled by current media.

@MadProject: I, uh, made an important edit to that post that you should really take into account. I shouldn't have written that part in the first place... :oops:

I don't think that's right.
Each item obviously should have been included in several figures.
Especially Roller.

I might be wrong
Maybe a giant corporation that has been ripping us all off
in one way or another
just wanted to let us know that they love us.

Sure

I always joke about hasbro/takara employees making a quick buck on the side with their third party upgrade companies. Hopefully hasbro/tak will start to include things with figures and the weapon packs can then be just blast effects/additional cool stuff rather than a figures missing bits.
Not sure how well weapon packs would sell if they did it*that way. The weapon pack with centurion is a mixture of cool stuff and missing bits which I more than appreciate.

I agree.
:HASBRO: probably saw profit to be made with upgrades and accessories kits.
Maybe.

It would likely be cheaper for those in other European countries just to order from ID toys/kapow and same for UK with hasbro using costly FedEx and customs charges. Even if leaving EU means custom charges later on.

Some exclusives are blink and miss or not even a chance to blink like the sea cons but with the hasbro pulse stuff/selects the chance of getting them has exponentially increased over trying to get sdcc, botcon and fun pub exclusives.

For roller to have been included with Prime, something else would have had to been reduced or left out completely. Not to mention the logistics of arranging things on the sprues so they're the right colours, and if you want them painted? Well there's the paint app budget to think of. This is the reality of corporation's and toy design and engineering. So many different considerations to take into account.

Came here to add my thoughts ... find Zelda and Z3ROhour being abusive again. You wanna knock that off or do I knock you off?
