How could Hasbro have let you and other English customers down when its English retailers that determine whether or not the products are sold in their stores?
If they do not place orders with Hasbro, then Hasbro cannot do anything about it.......right?
You need to direct this complaint to the stores you want to buy the toys from, not the toymaker.
Yeah that drives me nuts. It's the retailers that are to blame for your stores not having the product you desire on the shelf. You could only fault Hasbro for refusing to meet demand. Say like only producing 100 units of a certain figure, when their customers have ordered 1,000 units.
And demand is not the end user (collectors and such). Hasbro's customers are Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, etc. etc. and like any profitable business that has been around for a long time, they'll cram as much product down the throats of their customers as that particular customer will let them.
Hasbro's distribution is not why there's nothing on the shelf at Walmart, If there are toy sightings on the west coast but nothing on the east coast (or whichever way it works from however many distribution centers they have.) that's Walmart's distribution at fault.
