    No way. Hasbro has been the best long term investment I've made. I have a block of shares I've been holding since 2000 and the annualized return has been over 11% not including the dividend payouts. That's hard to beat.

    Very cool, go Transformers! I wonder if they can tell which figure they sold the most of? As if I don't know it's probably Bumblebee and Optimus.

    Would that this were enough to silence the "RotF toys aren't selling because this one store I go to is PACKED with them!" crowd.

    Of course not, God himself wouldn't be able to, just like the TFA FLOPPED people they'll ignore links to sites like this and keep repeating themselves for all eternity.

    In special there was this guy who kept saying that CYBERTRON WAS THE TRUE SUCCESS after calling people out on TFA's "failure" who completely ignored that TFA's year share wasn't as good as movie but still higher than everything else since Armada's end.

    Transformers superior. All other brands inferior.

    These numbers will not be there is Hasbro listened to all the fans saying Hasbro should do this/Hasbro should do that crowd.

    My nearest toy shop is packed with Classics Inferno and Vector Prime.
    Does that means Classics is a failure too?

    Sold out of my position in Hasbro today. Great run up from last year when I bought in, but I'm a little hesitant on their ongoing strong sales for the coming year. Lack of movie tie in toys will hurt them a bit compared to 09, especially since boys toys were one of their biggest money makers. I will definetly be looking to get back in somewhere around the mid 20's. Just my opinion though.
