There is a thread on TFW2005 about this too. Appears PC takes money for stock they don't have or haven't even secured, then gives you a big finger.


I'm not currently ordering through them for over $500 of overdue orders. They have given me a early June date for both orders but I am waiting to see.

The article is worth a read.
Talking about how they want to up their game on articulation in figures, and eventually want to do all season 1 bots.

Very exciting times indeed.

I looked at premium a little while ago but the constantly out of stock items put me off.
I glanced through those same forums about them not long ago for interests sake, I am so glad I never ordered through them, such crap customer service doesn't deserve a cent. I'd far rather support the local guys or the big players like bbts over them any day.

IronhideTFX what article were you referring to and any link to it?
Any news on any Hasbro masterpiece releases, they are usually more cartoon colour accurate and cheaper. Quite keen to finish off my G1 collection and looking for masterpiece to do that.

I believe the last Hasbro Masterpiece was Bumblebee which was exactly the same as the takara one and prices were in line with takara prices.

It's actually the other way around takara releases are more cartoon accurate while hasbro go for a more toy accurate look. I used to think the way you do and wait for hasbro releases but I changed around mp12 and never looked back. I go takara all in now. Hasbro are just too slow to release the transformers while others get totally skipped. Plus they run about the same price for us as we have to import no matter if it's hasbro or takara so that makes it a no brainer.

Wow according to that interview MP Trailbreaker and Hoist. These are definitely 2 I have been wanting in the collection for awhile now. I wonder when they would be out though?

Because reasons, Target Master Hot Rodimus is MP-40. I wonder sometimes if they have a wall of pictures of transformers characters and they blindfold someone and get them to randomly put a pin in the next Masterpiece(like the children's game "pin the tail on the donkey"). Because clearly 2 years after the last Hot Rodimus Masterpiece the one we are clamoring for is the Targetmaster version.
