    Does Hasbro read toy requests here on this vast board?

    They know a lot of things the fans want. How else do you explain something like Straxus? Or hell, Classics in general?

    I'm still waiting on the MP of the 2010 Transformer Hall of Famer BW Dinobot figure, if you are seeing this Hasbro.

    Oh what am I thinking? Hello MP Wheelie!!

    Probably but profits and children will always be more important than us.

    If they're listening, It would be nice to see a Cyberverse Metroplex playset that can, itself, Transform into a Supreme-class figure.

    They definitely keep an ear out for the fans, but they aren't going to take specific requests.

    But children grow up to be fans! And we were all children once, so in a way, we are still important to them.

    They could retool Optimus Maximus.

    If Hasbro listened we wouldn't be getting complaints and new threads about FOC figures everyday, that's stating the obvious.

    To a point, maybe. But I know if I worked for Hasbro, I'd sure as hell be tired of reading whiny adult men crying about toys real quick.

    They may not read everything specifically, but lurk the boards and get a feel for the overall climate on what is and isn't liked among their brands.

    He said he wanted a figure that transformed. If I don't "transform" by sitting on my ass, then neither does Optimus Maximus.

    Listening and doing everything that's asked for are two separate things. Just because everything that is asked for doesn't come about doesn't mean that they're not listening.

    Frankly, doing most of the things asked for on this board would have them out of business right quick.

    I think their "idea-man" employees haunt message boards and "steal" ideas. Sadly Hasbro turns their nose up everytime someone suggests a triple changing Springer or G1 arcee

    Wow, so what happened to have earned the name "Has-blow" in the Transformers universe... I think I've seen that name a time or three.

    Does the fandom make requests, or just demands?
