    Are these still going?

    I've not seen any for a while, and when they were going, they seemed to be answering less and less.

    PLEASE don't let this deteriorate into a "Hasblow sucks" or "They never answer anything" thread, I'm simply wondering.

    Hadn't really thought about them in a while, but now that you mention it, we haven't had one in quite some time. Not all that surprising, tbh. If people would have asked questions that Hasbro could actually answer without resorting to legalize, than they still might be doing them. After so many "When will random character 224 be made?" kind of questions, I can't blame them for ending them.

    I was attributing the fact we haven't had a Q&A in a while to the fact that toyfair was last month.

    I hope they keep them coming. It's always nice when a company can take the time to answer questions from not just one, but several fan sites.

    It does seem like it's been a while because I was thinking there would be a flood of questions about things like distribution if there was a round any time soon.

    Can I submit this " are legends of G1 figures, test runs, to see if they are popular enough to warrant a deluxe sized figures?

    I thought that distribution issues were caused by retailers, not Hasbro. If Walmart/Target/TRU aren't ordering anything, or if they ordered too much of the early waves and not enough of the later waves then there's not much Hasbro can do about that.

    You should know that logic has no place on a toy message board. Apparently some still view Hasbro as "all powerful" and the "be all, end all" of the toys, so clearly they MUST be able to do SOMETHING about the poor distribution.

    In a lot of cases, yes, but even BBTS were left hanging on RTS Voyagers.

    There were also several Hasbro UK retailers who were given a ship date for RTS Voyager - once Hasbro UK give an actual date- they rarely miss it. And the ship date was missed by a good 6-7 weeks.

    The thing is, Wave 1 RTS Voyagers started to show up in HK a good month before xmas. Indeed they were due for a US release some time in Dec, and it's only just now that they're starting to filter through to US and UK retail.

    The only conclusion i can draw is that somewhere along the line the supply was deliberately held back.

    Possibly, as suggested before, Hasbro held them back because Jan and Feb are relatively quiet months, and there may not be much product between RTS Wave 2 and DOTM Wave 1.
