Well, it seems like not even Hasbro is immune to poor sales and a stagnant economy world-wide.

From Fox News:

No. 2 Hasbro Inc. (HAS) posted higher third-quarter earnings as it cut costs, but the results were weaker than expected, with revenue down 2 percent as sales of its once-hot Beyblade continued falling.

Hasbro said third-quarter net income rose to $88.7 million from $85.8 million, while earnings per share fell to 45 cents from 48 cents per share on an increase in average shares outstanding.

Analysts, on average, estimated profit of 51 cents per share from Hasbro, the maker of My Little Pony (search) and Transformers, according to Reuters Estimates.

Revenue fell 2 percent to $947.3 million from $971.1 million.

Hasbro Chief Executive Alfred J. Verrecchia said third quarter top-line performance was "disappointing," with a "challenging" environment and softness in the boys' division.

He said Hasbro was confident it could continue to increase earnings over the rest of the year as it cut costs and achieved its operating margin goal of 12 percent or better by 2005.

"However, given our top line performance year-to-date and the uncertain retail environment, it is increasingly unlikely that we will achieve our goal of revenue growth for 2004," Verrecchia said in a statement.

TRANSFORMERS/G.I. JOE: “DIVIDED FRONT” #1

Co-written by James McDonough and Adam Patyk. Art by Pat Lee.

All the animated style and flavor of the classic cartoons, packed into a comic crossover too big for any TV to contain!

As the new commander of the anti-terrorist organization G.I. JOE, the young Dashiell Faireborn-codename: FLINT-is forced to earn his stripes when the Joe team goes up against the newly resurrected menace of COBRA. But does this rough-around-the-edges rookie have what it takes to keep the likes of SHIPWRECK, SNAKE EYES and ROCK-N-ROLL in line long enough to stop this upstart terrorist organization? It's a contest of wills and a race against time across a host of incredible globe-trotting locations as Flint rallies to even the odds against COBRA's superior firepower, which is being bolstered by the discovery of the mysterious and powerful mechanical beings known as the TRANSFORMERS!

For the first time ever in the modern era, you'll see these titans of toys go head-to-head in their classic costumes and robot designs! Featuring incredible Pat Lee art, two of the most popular franchises of all time return to their roots in the adventure you've always dreamed of seeing, courtesy of the creative team behind the G1 ongoing and MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE series!

Featuring special covers such as the Triple Gatefold cover by Pat Lee, and the combining wrap-around covers by Don Figueroa and Joe Ng!

    Energon Overcast's instructions have appeared on Hasbro's website today, in .pdf format, and he is AN AUTOBOT according to them. However, there's no word on what his color scheme will be, probably something similar to Takara's Skyfire (Skyline) Sonic.
