    A long time ago, someone here at TFW2005 posted or linked a source that listed sales figures (either total numbers or relative) for 1984, which revealed that Transformers was not as successful as G.I. Joe, at least not initially, if I recall right.

    Does anyone still remember this thread? Does anyone know where I can find the source?

    I hope you can find it, that sounds like a nifty read. Someone's gotta know! Of course, when someone needs to know something obscure like this, I/we usually call you in as the ultimate ringer...crap...

    I vaguely recall the thread in question being in the Toyark, and we were guessing that Transformers would REALLY start to get profitable for Hasbro in 1985.

    I only recall those Hasbro paperwork scans. Maybe it was a dream. Hope not, though, I'd like to see some of that info. I'll try hunting around..

    Indeed...Hell hath frozen over
