In fact, Hasbro's new logo should be one of their lovable characters pitching the middle finger to both the U.S. and U.K. flags. Like a fickle girlfriend, Hasbro has dumped us without ceremony or apology. "Thanks for enjoying our product since the eighties, America, but you're no longer man enough to satisfy us."
Though I do not in any way hold it against the posters of such articles (fine job!) I am nonetheless sick of constantly seeing huge splashes about "arms microns" and all the other stuff we in the US are not getting unless we pay outrageous import prices. We want them, and could afford them if they were distributed in our own country, but no-"f**k you America, we love Sasuke now!"
Our wounds are thus getting thoroughly salted.
Keep in mind that Arms Microns etc. are out of Japan, and not from Hasbro at all. In Japan, it's Takara running the show. If Hasbro chooses not to reproduce or distribute Takara's creations/alternate takes on the figures/lines, then that's their choice (the Masterpiece, Henkei, United and countless other lines from the past were no different).
Takara is an entity unto itself, with their own market to cater to, one more focused around collectors, not children. That's the reason Hasbro is so different with what they offer vs what Takara creates.
