Allow me to enter cynic mode.

 

Let's see. In order to get new figs, I have to now pay shipping and handling to have them delivered. On top of that, they are now going to new packaging that will make those shipping costs higer?

 

On top of that, I now have to compete with all Joe collectors at one source rather than with just my local collectors over many sources?

 

I'm sorry to say, but this doesn't excite me at all. Frankly, it sounds like my collecting costs are going to increase while finding stuff is going to get harder. (Don't think the day they release a single carded Viper that they won't sell out in the first two hours. Sucks for everyone who wasn't watching and waiting every second, eh?)

Aside from your condescending attitude, these are very valid concerns. Everyone is so caught up on the moment that they haven't had time to think about it. Aside from the issues I already brought up, what of foreign collectors? My guess is that they will be left in the cold with this deal.

 

Were these actual mail in items that were easy to ship, that's one thing. It's something else all together with the way they're approaching this. We'll have to wait and see, but I don't think this is the salvation that collectors were hoping for.

There was no condescension in my post. I was pointing out that there's no need to jump all over Hasbro already when there's no details available whatsoever.
