Well, that's part of my issue. Back in December, I bought my last Transformer at retail and it was Sky Shadow. It looked so sweet and I just had to have it right then! Yesterday when I was in the city, I had that feeling again for the first time in 8 months! ...it was Sky Shadow again. The TRU Express in the Gallery finally got him and Junkheap in. Five fully loaded pegs of Bumblebees and Cliffjumpers and a single peg of last years Generations. And there is seriously nothing that I actually want until FoC Grimlock and Blaster and those are just to replace the Classics and Device Label ones, respectively. I don't have the Hub so I don't care for Prime. I don't like chibi rock-paper-scissors toys. I really think Hasbro should have made that the focal gimmick of Battle Beasts what with it being the original point of Battle Beasts in the '80s anyway. I'm disappointed in what I'm seeing of Kre-O after what I consider an excellent start (at least for the Autobots) and the single release Kreons in my opinion aren't as good as last years either. I love the little guys but I want the large robots made out of Legos thing to be worth it. Even FoC and Prime Ultra Magnus and FoC Swindle aren't definite purchases right now. And that is a sorry state of affairs.
Also, for the last time, HASBRO DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH DISTRIBUTION! THAT IS THE RETAILERS! ONCE IT LEAVES CHINA IT'S NOT THERE PROBLEM! THEY EVEN DO THE CASE ASSORTMENTS BASED ON RETAILER NEEDS AND WANTS! HASBRO DOESN'T CARE IF THEY MAKE 6,000 BUMBLEBEES OR 6,000,000, IT'S THE RETAILERS THAT ORDER THEM! BLAME WALMART, NOT HASBRO!
