Hasbro 3Q profit rises 8.8 percent - Yahoo! News
Yay! Hasbro doing good is always good news.
Lord knows I picked up Leader Optimus and Jetfire when they went down to $35.00 last week. These are the only ROTF I have so far. The price mark up was a huge turn off, but their plan is working. Now they're not selling Deluxe's for $7.88 and you feel like you're getting a deal. Now they're selling for $10.00 straight up and now that's the bargain.
Lets hope they can move a ton of GI Joe and Transformers in the fourth quarter because I don't know about the other stores but my local store is way over stocked on the same waves. Not that there are any Revenge of the Fallen figures that I want but I was wanting some of the upcoming Joe stuff without having to use an on-line retailer.
Maybe my stock will go up, and if so I'll sell it at a profit and invest in something more profitable.
I agree... YAY!
Lower costs and higher sales. That's your poor Animated quality control and Movie toys being sold by the bucket-load, right there.
Good news! Now use those profits to make some good new Classics/Universe Type figures.
Oh we can only hope that Hasbro will be nice enough to put something into another round of Classics/Universe instead of just an end flow of movie style toys.
Not really, since we don´t get classics here. I´m pretty happy with the way things are.
They mention lowered costs, but not the higher prices that have come with their lowered costs. There has been a 10-20% price increase across the board.
Add 10% in lowered costs (total guesstimate) to the 10-20% in increased prices and they are clearing 25% or so in added profits on that end.
HAS stock price dropped
Hey, it means more Transformers for us!
Leave the virtues / vices of the various world economic systems at the door please guys. It treads dangerously close to our rule on politic discussion.
I'll second / third / fourth that motion about it always being good to see Hasbro doing well. As long as the line does well, it means we'll have plenty of new toys coming down the pipeline. Like them or not, more product dramatically increases the likelyhood of everyone finding something that they like.
It should come as no surprise that profits are up over the same period last year, they have two major blockbuster movies pushing sales this year.
Actually I'm impressed that they still did pretty good last year even without that kind of promotional push. What did they have last year?
Yay! hopefully this means MOAR good toys
Hmmm, and to think, I didn't even buy any TF's this quarter.
Do profits from the licencing to IDW count?
`good news that hasbro is doing better than mattel, cause im tired of mattel we have here in mexico tons of max steel action figure, they just full entire shelves of that lame ass figure, and i just learn that max steel are hard to find in US so come here to Tijuana Mexico and take some cause every time a go to se new releases for transformers they put more fkn max steels on the shelves, hope mattel banckrupt very soon lol
Stupid girl's toys, weighing down revenue
That's a butt load of money.
