"Something besides Bumblebee" is a pretty broad category to label as "catering to the adult fans".


...Erm, what's the point of bringing up all these statistics, again? We know both the kids and the collectors each make up a good chunk of the buying percentage. Generations (flippin' STRAXUS), re-releasing FE, conventions, etc. prove Hasbro cares enough about our dollars that they're willing to throw us some bones; all the while these are very much still children's toys and not adult collectibles. I don't see a point in pinning down the exact numbers.

Yes Bumblebees are everywhere nowadays (which was inevitable following a BB-centric movie trilogy), but look at FoC. NO BUMBLEBEES. The re-release of FE doesn't seem to be including BB, either. Hasbro is making strides to lower the number of Bumblebees.

Am i happy? Not really. Sizes are shrinking. Distribution is shitty at best. Too many of the 'Bees, too many odd toys like those damned bot shots. I'm spending more on MLP than Hasbro TF toys!
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

I think they were probably talking about that stupid NYCC exclusive 'G1 deco' Arcee... :roll:

You think wrong then. The Hasbro panel at Botcon was blatantly asked about a Classics Arcee. Aaron Archer's response was that Prime Arcee IS the same Arcee to them. Roll your eyes at me, feh! Feh I say!

Even if she's the same character in their eyes, surely someone realizes that she looks nothing like the Arcee from the movie and seasons 3-4 of the TV show that everybody wants. I think they're just afraid that a pink and white Transformer won't sell.

We're dealing with mostly little boys here, at their age, would you be caught dead with a pink toy?

Most little boys won't want to be caught dead with a toy that is a girl to begin with.

Hell no. I didn't mean that as though it was surprising, it's just kinda unfortunate. At least there's Animated Arcee, she looks a lot like G1 Arcee. Botcon needs to redeco/retool her into G1 Arcee.

When I was a kid, my Brother and I had My Little Pony figures.

We'd wash and brush their hair...

Then have MLP death battles.

Well, if this was this past BotCon, I can't speak to what they said, I didn't go. But the '11 BotCon they hinted an upcoming Arcee that was G1...and I that crap I think they were talking about the stupid G1 deco Prime Arcee.

You're both missing the point I was making. Hasbro representatives teased us with a product we obviously weren't getting if only we would buy this version. That's underhanded.

I love great third party stuff as much as the next guy but I ultimately want the official product. Options are never a bad thing.

I voted Yes.
While I've held many of the same gripes and concerns that have been expressed here thus far, I do prefer to look at the positives. For me, that's mostly due to the WFC/FoC lines. I'd always wanted Cybertronian versions of the original G1 characters so this is a dream come true, scale issues notwithstanding. Now, do I think they can do better? Hell yes!! Plenty of things to improve on, but I do like what I'm seeing thus far.
