I am so tired of Hasbro's BS.
I am going to state that when this happened in the GI Joe line, about 20 guys came out of the woodwork telling posters that they shouldn't approch hasbro in the Q&A's, it was all business, appologising for hasbro ect. It was like they were on the PR payroll or something.
What I am happy about is that this community seems to realize that hasbro is screwing them over and refuses to just take it. There are tons of examples (SW, Joe, and Transformers) of how Hasbro is either totally incompetant or simply doesn't care (I think its a combination myself but that is beside the point). But this is the one community that has the purchasing power to call them on thier BS.
The aggravation I am personally feeling toward Hasbro lately is at an all time high and I do not see a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of how they are answering our concerns.
Chewie, I have felt the same way since 2005 (I can actually tell you the straw that broke my back way back then) I have seen a ton of freinds in the TF and Joe comunities leave cause of stuff like this (Get fed up and walk leaving whatever joys they have from this hobby behind them). I long ago said (and will say yet again) that if hasbro didn't make some of my all time fav characters I wouldn't even bother with them. In fact there are moments I actually work at ways NOT to give them money (ie trades) just so that I don't have to think I am contributing to the BS.
It's a shame a company with such easy to work franchises under it can't seem to get it together. No wonder they are still #2 toy company in spite of that fact.
