Isn't this the ideal?
Some people (me!) really like the box set. It's a cool theme, it has some fun extras, it has a kind of premium paint app, but, yes, it's a pricier as a result.
Other people prefer the single releases. They're less expensive, but they don't have the fun extras and have more basic paint apps.
People should be glad that it worked out this way, but, instead, they're calling it "shenanigans." You'd prefer that they hadn't released the single card figures until after the sdeluxe set was released and then we could listen to people complain how they'd been cheated/tricked into buying the more expensive one first?
I think you are misunderstanding his post. It appears that Hasbro tried to sell the box set and get that out and was going to offer Mojo standalone afterwards (notice how the Legends team announced the box set but not the standalone version) Those are the Shenanigans he was referring to. I’m not sure what happened, to keep that from happening. Yes, this worked out fantastically for us, but seems like it will go badly for them. They are going to be stuck with those overpriced sets for months at least until their next big sale. Which I really don’t care about, but I would imagine they will try not to let that happen next time.
Also I don’t really agree with your paint apps argument. Yes the paint on mojo in the box set is a little better, but the paint on long shot is worse than the retro version. So for me, that’s a wash. If both had the superior paint I would probably not have cancelled my set.
