    I don't know if this is really of note but it's jarring to me. I'm writing my final essay for college right now and in the next room Cartoon Network has been on in the background. I've noticed the recent Cybertron toy commercial has played multiple times within the last hour or two. I don't recall a time when I've seen so much push given to a TF line on commercials in recent years. What's going on, is Hasbro caring more about such things suddenly, or am I just being a tard about it?

    Anyway, I thought it was interesting, especially as I recall multiple people on here saying they hadn't even seen the commercials on at all, the same as me before tonight.

    It could be in response to sluggish toy sales (speculation on my part). It doesn't seem that Cyb figures are moving well in my neck of the woods, or stores have large stocks of older waves there trying to get through.

    ha, imagine that, lagging sales for a show aired when most sane people are asleep.

    I hope with the next show they take some more aggressive measures to get the show out there to be watched. Also, it'd help if it was watchable. The last few :puke2:

    I barely see Cybertron commercials here. Matter of fact the only time I have even seen them is what Cybertron the show is on.

    Yeah Hasbro needs to either A: Dump CN, or B: Kick them in the ass



    No kidding, I have not liked an English Lanuage version of a TF Show since RID, however the Subbed version of GF is watchable, the Cybertron Dub is what makes it unwatchable for me

    I was actually going to watch the show this morning since I had to be up at that time for work and all but it wasn't on! Instead I watched a different awful show except this one was about dinosaurs and a helicopter that went back in time!

    I have to agree with you as well. Good time slots for the show and having an actual decent show to fill the slots with would be a big plus.

    As for sales, I don't know. The toys seem to be moving fairly well around here. I think it's distribution at work, some places only get a little product while others get too much. I'm sure the show hardly having a chance to get seen by kids does contribute to any mass shelf warming that's gone on though, without a doubt.

    I agree. Compared to Energon, Cybertron has just flew off the shelves, aside from the "Walmart overstocks", product is rotated fairly well.

    Last time I saw a line move this well was Armada
