There is a point to that, yes. The article is framed in such as way that adult collectors do feature, but Ryan is mentioning trying to get his daughter into the figures.

Which might do what you're saying. :D


The writer of the article, Gregory Schmidt, interviewed me for about 5 to 10 minutes. We talked about plenty more than Rescue Bots and my daughter. I think he asked me about my opinions about Beast Hunters, what Hasbro is doing to constantly change up the brand to stay relevant, asked me about my thoughts about (these are my words) Hasbro cracking down on MLP infringements to which I replied that I hadn't heard anything about it, told him I thought it was interesting to hear that they've been cracking down on MLP issues while Hasbro has its own problems with Transformers in regards to the 3rd party products (which we talked about for a little bit). He asked me a few questions about Seibertron.com, etc.

It was a nice, casual interview. We covered a whole lot of ground. It's interesting how much discussion and work goes into getting quotes that journalists both in print and TV end up using in their stories.


Yeah, I was wondering whether that was all you had talked about.

Shame we're not able to see the rest of that discussion, and the same goes for the others beign interviewed or quoted.

Oh yah! The photos from my galleries have appeared in a half dozen or so print publications as well, oddly mostly in other countries such as Mexico and the UK as well as the Madman DVDs. :D
