    We got an answer back from Hasbro and it's a big one!

    1) What is Hasbro's strategy for the release of the remaining, announced Transformers Animated figures such as Rodimus, Ironhide, Blackout, Thundercracker, etc.?

    2) How do you solicit and determine which stores receive exclusives?

    Sister site, Toyark.com, answers are also up! Check out why Hasbro chose to use the Chromia mold for Elita-1 and the information behind the new, environmentally friendly twist ties!

    Good to see that Rodimus is being released. Fingers crossed for the Voyagers finding their way into stores. :D

    Nice. I've got the Takara Blackout on pre-order, and no force in the universe will stop me from getting a Rodimus from TRU. That covers my last TF:A toy wants. :D 

    Really, really glad that they finally gave an answer on Animated stuff. I imagine Rodimus and Ironhide might be released in the summer instead of fall, considering how Ratchet and Arcee have been out for a while and this answer says they won't be out until spring.

    Good to hear Rodimus and Ironhide might make it out.

    Now if only TRUs would carry sufficient numbers of them.

    DAMN.
    Hastak is pissing me off.
    Why all the Toys r us Exclusives?
    They know we're begging at their feet for these figures, so they'll try their hardest to make it as hard to get and exspensive as possible.
    Any agree with me?

    Especially since Rodimus is a MUCH more popular character than Arcee.

    One beats None and it sounds pretty cool that Rodimus/Ironhide will come out (I collect mainly cons, but good for the people who collect bots which I am happy for) and here is to reasonable hoping for Thundercracker's and Blackout's (USA) releases.

    Or not make them exclusives at all. Let Target and WM in on the action too.
