    "Small bots. BIG ATTITUDE"?

    REALLY, Hasbro? I guess "cool" is a relative term.

    Funny how the promo doesn't showcase the actual figures whatsoever.

    It's unlikely that I'll buy any of the toys, but I thought the game promo actually looked pretty cool.

    I'd kind of like a real fighting game like that. Not turn-based tho.

    These bot shots sound intriguing. After seeing this, I kind of wish hasbro would do a toon of these over rescue bots. xD


    Because that report was done by a sensationlist group that tends to fabricate stories for press. Notice how they singled out Hasbro only for it and didn't mention any of the other companies that may use those factories too.

    The follow up investigation showed it to be hogwash, and I'm sure if an impartial third party group did another investigation it would either prove to be false still, or they would at least condemn all the companies that may use said factories.

    Personally, I lean it was a hatchet job because Mattel is still trying to get out from under their own bad press of what they blamed on China that was their decisions and had nothing to do with china. The corporate underhanded way to do that is point and go "look they do stuff that's worse!" Instead of taking responsibility for choices.

    FE was canceled due to retailers. It's really that simple. Hasbro isn't to blame for every toy and evil in the world. Retailers are the ones who decide what to put on shelves or not. Retailers are the ones who also make demands about what they are willing to pay(walmart especially) and what they mark up figures to in cost.
