    May i ask if the Animated toyline has been released? The last i heard was that they will be due for a june release. But i saw some collectors from other toy forums getting them already.

    Anyone can enlighten me on this? :)

    Rumors abound of the big boxes getting Hasbro to extend the movie line and thus pushed back Animated till summer from an original spring launch. Thus factories that were already producing Animated toys, had to stop and let the first wave or two product just sit there. Enter factory workers in Vietnam or Manchuria (China's industrial heartland is in the north east of the country), who get paid squat. Look at this stuff that sitting there and walk out with a few dozen. Just selling one of these on Ebay at $30.98 USD is to them a weeks wages. And if it wasn't the factory workers it was the factory itself selling to distributors.

    Stolen packaged samples get sold on eBay all the time.
