So I've noticed that the shop actually has a Reviews feature for items in the shop. I was going to go add a review for the Ultimate Madoka scale figure, since I saw it was the deal of the day, because I think it is a really great figure. I saw it had 5 stars, but only 1 review, so I wanted to give my input as well.

But when I got to the page, since it's the deal of the day page template instead of the normal item info template, the reviews don't show.

I highly recommend updating the deal of the day page to show reviews, in order to help people decide if a certain item is for them or not. Especially for a high priced item such as Ultimate Madoka, I think when people see more reviews showing it's has a lot of good feedback it would be helpful.

With the commenting being disabled on the "Daily Deal", one could assume that enabling the review function on the products is going to be in the same boat. This is all speculation and maybe not at all true, but one could see how commenting and review a marquee product on the front page could hurt sales; such transparency would do more harm than good, presumably. Also, take into account how competitors can link their site for a better deal. This is what I got when they took out the in page commenting on the "Daily Deals" a while ago.

Then again, they probably took it out the commenting on the "Daily Deals" at the moment until they could get a more baseline and stability with their store service due to it still being in its early stages.

Well, that's something to think about.

Just a thread about commenting on the "Daily Deals":

I know that it's not actually "Reviewing", but one could see the parallels on both cases.
