    They also should air some commercials on TV that say that. During kids programming.

    Hope they don't need a recall now.

    That would look pretty darn bad.

    Damn...you beat me to posting this!

    I guess that means even fewer TFs available, as parents scoop up the only safe toys available for sale. ;)

    So that's why my TFs are missing paint apps.

    Who knew.

    Most likely both. They probably just got lucky when they found out about all this and checked the toys for lead and came back clean. But now that they're aware of the situation they'll probably be stepping up inspections a bit.

    I'm not too surprised by this. Afterall, this is the same company that modifies or denies us toys because some part of them could break and be eaten by a child. Heaven forbid if the kid got lead poisoning too while choking to death on a transformers part.

    Seriously, kudos to hasbro for their standards, tests, and they have heavy right to brag. They just better make sure not a single hasbro toy shows up afterwards with lead.

    Ballsy like pinching a guy in the nuts!

    It seems like a low blow, but I suppose all is fair in advertising - plus it's the absolute truth, so far anyway, I'd hate for them to have a recall right after putting out this ad campaign.

    Ballsy maybe, but I've heard ALL toys are taking a hit this season from the Lead'n'whatever scares, especially if they're manufactured in China like %80-plus of toys and everything else. I figure Hasbro is just trying to take back some of the toy sales that were taken from them this year by parental fear and confusion.

    Just hope it doesn't backfire with a recall happening shortly after.

    Kind of a cheap... Oh Well. They can brag all day about not having lead in their paint... That doesn't mean they have better product than Mattel or the other companies out there. ...It just seems like a low class move for Hasbro to take.
