According to a Reuters Report, Hasbro Inc. sales for the fourth quarter of 2007 rose by 16.3% to $1.3 Billion.
Hasbro's international sales rose 29% with their operating profit climbing to 40 percent, or $489.2 million, thanks largely to sales of Transformers, Nerf and Furreal product lines.

This good news for the second largest American Toy Company has come on the back of Mattel Inc. claiming record profits, despite a 3% sales drop in the North American Market.

Hasbro expects to continue with high sales through 2008 with the Transformers: Animated, Spiderman and Star Wars lines, with 2 feature films (Transformers 2 and GI Joe) to further boost sales in 2009.

Hey maybe they learned something after a whole year of Cybertron repaints!

Only repaint for half a year then break out new product quickly.

People will by the new thing more!

i am an idiot but even i am not surprised to here that from hasbro.

hasbro dont let it go toyour head to much cockyness leads to defeat i dont want to see you make crappy figures because you have a big ego now ( not that you ever did make crappy figures to begin with just a little help with paint jobs with some figures and you be good to go ).

Does this mean they have enough money to afford making enough figures so that I can actually find them?

Really G.I.Joe in 2009?
I still think they should have a TF/ G.I. Joe Movie tie-in.
Have Snake Eyes/Cobra Commander capture Bumblee.

Not surprising.

As expected. TF is one big driving force behind Hasbro.
