So, this is a little confusing: HasbroToyShop has amended their FAQ with a notice that Hasbro's "brand websites have changed and will no longer sell products directly." That's kind of legalese gibberish, which taken on its own would lead us to think that Hasbro was simply no longer providing HTS links from their official brand portals for things like My Little Pony, NERF, and that thing with the robots that change into stuff.
The next entry on the list is another vague entry saying that "changes" are coming to HasbroToyShop as of January 18th, 2019
and they can't say what they are - but this would be a fantastic time to use up any existing giftcards you may have for HTS.
Does this mean that the site is closing, or that operation of HTS will perhaps be turned over to a third-party company that will not honor existing gift cards? There's no way to say - and obviously if Hasbro could legally say so they would, because sticking customers with unusable gift cards is not a good look for any major company. But we're going to echo their advice: You will probably want to spent any HasbroToyShop giftcards or other store credit you may have before the deadline of January 18th 2019.
Looks like 2019's going to be exciting one way or another.
