Since the Transformers release show in 1984 the Brazilian fandom are immersed in a void of TF toys and merchandise. The "Estrela" company produced some Minicars (Optimus and Malignus) and after that NOTHING... After several years Estrela made some importation (a little BW, Beast Machines and Armada) but in low quantity and poor distribution... Pifious. Finally Estrela lost the rights to import and sell TF toys and Gulliver assumed the place, importing the Movie line and Cybertron line... But once more in low quantity and bad distribution (but they made a better job than Estrela, of course!) - And recently was noticed that Hasbro arrived in Brazil... (finally) Now I need to ask... What kind of job Hasbro is planning to do around here? Maybe this time we will have a real and decent treatment about TF toys... At least I hope so. Because since the 80´s until now, we Brazilian transfans have to buy TF toys on ebay, paying great values with shipping and absurds IMPORTATION TAXES (because the ridiculous brazilian politics that protect the local toy companies that sell only dolls and board games) - We are avid for action toys but we simply don´t have it.
