After searching for Sideways at local Toys R Us stores for a few weeks, a fan calling himself Goldbug decided to contact Hasbro and see what the deal was...

Goldbug:
According to ToysRUs.com Transformers Armada Sideways has been discontinued. I haven´t even seen the figure in stores. Will you be shipping more Sideways figures, and if so when?

Response (Kelly Landoch):
Hi [Goldbug],

Thank you for contacting Hasbro, Inc. regarding our Transformers product line.

I have checked the Toys R Us site and can not find any where on the site where it has the Transformer Sideways on it.

We do not have a Transformer listed under the Armada line called Sideways. We have a Robots in Disguise Sideways and Axer that is a Walmart exclusive.

THERE YOU HAVE IT! DON´T LISTEN TO YOUR HASBRO REPS!

Thanks to Goldbug!

Hey folks, just heard this rumor from a local toy dealer that Armada WAVE 2 (Smokescreen and Sideways) have already stopped shipping. That doesn´t mean that tons more won´t be popping up in stores near you, it simply means that Hasbro´s not going to be sending any more out. This is the same type of thing that happened with RiD Wave 2 (The Machine Wars Repaints and Bruticus). Extremely small runs. Get these figures while you can.

Thanks James!

There´s a crazy rumor going around the Internet that Takara might be considering reissuing the Headmaster Fortress Maximus figure from 1987. Brave Maximus from Car Robots was released in 2000 so the mold is readily available. Fact or Fiction ... discuss it here!

UPDATE:

This thing may be a future Lucky Draw piece, however, the figure on Ebay most definately is NOT. The Ebay product is (most likely) a prototype or test-shot for the upcoming Lucky Draw figure.

As for the short stacks, it´s something different for the japanese fans.

The following is a RUMOR!

As you´ve probably noticed by the stacks of Armada toys piling up in local stores the line isn´t selling as well as planned. You´ve probably also noticed that the Toys R Us exclusive reissues have been flying off the shelves (except for Ultra Magnus, but that´s another story) along with the HOC PVC figures. You´re not the only one to notice this. Hasbro has been aware. It´s entirely possible that Armada may be brought to a screaching halt sooner than later. There is an upside to this though. This is NOT the death of Transformers. A new G1-esque line is being considered for its replacement.

How long does Armada have? Well folks, I wouldn´t pre-order Galvatron or Thundercracker if I were you...

I received an anonymous e-mail today containing the following:

"Behind the scenes at Hasbro, there is a debate about the direction & future of how to market Transformers.

"Much of the current marketing staff view Transformers as their "younger" boy´s action brand, while GI Joe is aimed at older boys. Thus they want simplified toys with gimmicks over poseability. Each series will be centered on the gimmicks rather than the characters much like the HeadMasters-ActionMasters years of Generation One. The fact that the current cartoon was as childish as it is was merely a fluke. No one at Hasbro had really paid much attention to the Armada cartoon until the criticisms started rolling in. From within the fandom and within Hasbro´s own offices.

"A small segment of Hasbro´s work force (sadly not the decision makers of the company) view Transformers as epic sci-fi and want it to replace the quietly dying Star Wars brand for boys, teens AND adult collectors. But the brass see the fandom as little more than a nuisance and are unwilling to risk a major marketing campaign to attract more of them.

"Right now there is a serious debate about whether the next series will continue the "Final Fantasy" approach and aim squarely at boys 4-9, or whether it will feature the return of the characters from Generation One in some form.

"While Hasbro is not taking the adult collector´s interest seriously, Takara and surprisingly Cartoon Network have BOTH voiced an opinion to Hasbro to redirect the brand back to G1."

This is strictly a RUMOR. However, if I get more information on this, you can bet I´ll post it RIGHT HERE @ SEIBERTRON.com!
