ah...that was what I thought too...duuh... hahahhahaha

I agree with Liege Evilmus, come that new series, the stuff they're putting on the market would go bye bye.

I think the new series' toys would appeal alot to a wider crowd, simply because of the "friendlier" looking design. It'll make cool collector items too I guess, and to a crowd not just limited to Transformers fan.

I think they're going to have an appeal like those funky Hong Kong figures or those Kubrick bears kinda stuff.

But back on topic, yes well, Hasbro owns em, they do what they please, and to them it should be good. Now if only we can add a lot more heart to it all, it should be a win win situation to fans and hasbro.

Looking forwadrd to great toys!!!

I haven't skipped a TF line released in The States in over 12years. This new series is gonna put a pause on that I believe.
