Whoever gets the job I hope they figure out ways to improve distribution. Tail end waves getting dropped, over stocking of Bumblebees, shelfwarming. These problems affect the brand at the source of it's revenue, consumers. So hopefully these issues are going to be solved.

I believe previous manager didn't need to quit, just bring back the same awesomeness they were doing for previous movies (like legion class, accurate movie colors, no exclusives repaints/pack/combos, no repaints in such a short time, competitive prices, avoid non-transforming stuff and focus on collectors instead of 3 years old kids) :-?

^ actually, my friend, Bumblebee has ALWAYS been a staple of the human-cybertronian bond. If you diminish that, you diminish what you know from G1. Prime really brought character growth into him. I felt he was a really strong character after that. It's not BUMBLEBEE that has been the problem. It's been Bay that made him mute and an artillery unit with empathetic tendancies that made that one robot the problem. The way you feel about him is only reflective of the way you have accepted his projection based on your expectations and criteria. ~Til all are one~

Cant say I agree with you 100%. The beast wars and Unicron Trilogy eras did just fine without Bumblebee. You are correct, Bay brought him back and turned him into the monster many fans hate. There were many characters that bonded with humans. good examples were Wheelie, Tracks,and even Powerglide that fell in love with a human girl. And those mini cons bonded well with their human friends in Armada. It doesn't always have to be bumblebee.

IMO Mr. Bay has done an amazing work... But Hasbro over sold Bee in every single show killing him, too much yellow everywhere... besides we have so many other amazing characters from Bay's movies and other shows that will never hit the light. I love Bee, but I don't need 20 repaints/re encarnations of him. From AoE my favorite characters are that 2 heads shockwave and that garbage truck combined out of 3 cons, perhaps they will never come to toys and less to legion class.

I've been receiving Hasbro's job notifications the last year or two, and there have been a handful of TF jobs posted over that time. I would very much like to work for Hasbro someday (but it would be a journey - I'd probably have to get a sales gig there first, cuz I'm in sales, before moving into brand management... I'm qualified, though).

Is this something someone randomly picked up, or did Hasbro ask Seibertron.com to post this?

PG 13 doesn't mean 13 and over only - it just means if you're under 13, you should have a parent with you. And guess who buys the toys for the 4+ crowd? 8-}

I think I'll apply for this.

Doubt I'll get a call back, but who knows, it could happen.

Dear Hasbro, please start with putting some people in office in The Netherlands that give a damn and bring down the prices, € 30,- for a deluxe is ridiculous.

There is no recent Star Wars in stores.
There are no recent DECENTLY priced Transformers in stores.

Point is you are losing money, people can't buy what is not available and won't buy if it is too expensive.

So am i hired?
