Just one question:

Why is there a decline in the quality of toys made by Hasbro. It has been known for a while now that many of the new releases (Animated and Universe lines) have an issue with parts falling off, parts not fitting properly, sloppy paintjobs, and then some more. What's wrong here?

Have you ever considered releasing the much-sought-after Lio Convoy mold to the Western Hemisphere, even if labeled as a "Beast Era Optimus Prime"?

#1: Does has Hasvro have any intentions of releasing all Universe figures in Canada? Or will Canada only get bare minimum, and Americans can expect full releases?

#2: Can we assume that the Universe Classics line will try to cover all of the Generation 1 & 2 Transformer figures?

#3: Does Hasbro's shopping website have any intentions of extending it's shipping policy beyond just the United States?

#4: Can we expect any Universe Classics figures to be released in North America recolored like the Japan Henkei releases? Ie: Rodimus recolored into Henkei Wildrider, Jetfire recolored into Henkei Skyfire, etc.

#5: Is there a possiblity of producing combiner figures, instead of simply recoloring old molds?

1. Will there be more "completely show-accurate" versions of characters from past lines like the upcoming show-accurate Universe Deluxe Starscream figure?

2. I hear that we are getting a Robot Heroes figure of Victory Saber. Will we be seeing more releases of Japanese-exclusive characters from The Headmasters, Chojin Masterforce, Victory, Zone, Return of Convoy, Operation Combination, Beast Wars II, or Beast Wars Neo?

3. Since the for Japanese G1 cartoon series were released on DVD in Europe and Australia, is there any hope of seeing them, and perhaps Beast Wars II and Neo, released on DVD in North America? Particularly the United States.

4. Is there any chance of seeing the Robotmasters/Beast Wars Telemocha series molds of Deluxe class Optimus Primal and/or Deluxe class Beast Wars Megatron released in the States?

5. What was the reason for all of the production flaws with the first few waves of the Transformers Animated figures?

I'm pretty sure that someone somewhere already reported seeing a prototype of him a couple months back. And I don't see why they WOULDN'T make a toy of him, pretty much every other one-episode character got one.

Will the prices in Canada ever balance out to actually represent current exchanges rates between the USD and CAD? Currently the MSRP for Deluxes in the US is 9.99, but even Wal-Mart in Canada charges 14.98 per Deluxe, which is a price I just don't feel is justified considering current Market value of my Dollar (and is why I've yet to buy a single TF toy in a long while at retail).

1. Since the majority of all the various Transformer toy lines essentially have ball & socket heads, which are easily removable and very close in size. Is it possible for Hasbro to mass produce a variety of additional & originl head sculpts that can automatically be implemented every time a character receives a new paint job? This would allow for the toys to actually me more unique rather than just a different color scheme. Possibly an exclusive accessory pack or something to that effect?

2. Have plans ever been discussed for updating the Insecticons or Stunticons, Arialbots, Technobots or possibly even a Pretender in the Universive toy line?

3. With all the various group names that were thrown out there, Autobots, Decepticons, Constructicons and so on. Why were they never any Aquabots? You could have had 5 or 6 sea vehichles that Combined and Transformed into a larger robot? The Decepticons had the Seacons. It is still possible with the Universe line.

4. Will there ever be a Transformer contest where a fan's idea for a Transformer could actually be made. Like a design/art contest where the fan's original character could be made into an actual figure. The Trasnformer community could vote for their favorites...It would also give Hasbro a huge influx of free ideas since they would own the rights to all the submissions.

5. How hard is Hasbro working on getting back some of the copyrighted names that they previously lost. Like Bluestreak and several others. Are the new owners unwilling to part with them or is there more to it than just that or just a question of cost.

GI joe scale transformers will ever happen as thye are not marketable anywhere now out side of the USA, europe and japan do not support these lines so the money would be best spent on other projects.

As for my question:

Would it be possible for hasbro to make a reissue of Trailbreaker or is the mold completely gone as out of all the original year 1 toys he is the only one which seems to have never been given a reissue, apart from the license problems ones(ie: you never gonna get a reissue Shockwave, delux insecticons, jetfire or delux autobots).

Here are my curiosities ...

Will size accuracy be given more attention? Example, Blackout looks kind of sad standing next to Ironhide, he doesn't look nearly as menacing as he was in the movie.

Will we finally get to see molds for characters who have never been released or more new molds rather than multiple repaints? Example, Arcee.

And I also argee with other posts about seeing the Technobots, Aerielbots, Comabticons, Predacons, more Dinobots and Insecticons, Head and Targetmasters, and cities ... Tryipticon and Metroplex and Scorponok and Fortress Maximus.
