    OMFG so Igear wants there customers to help get there products in stores?

    Maybe if they stop making KOs and produce some fully original products stores will take there products to sell.

    In the US this can be tough for them. The 3 places that most Americans go for toys Target, TRU and Walmart. Since the privately owned local toy stores is almost non-existant, iGears only real chance is local comic/hobby shops.

    I think they're talking about online stores, because I find it really hard to believe that they have the capability to supply products for normal stores.

    The reason nobody stocks iGear's stuff is because they do KOs of real, usually recently-available Transformers toys ("Faith Leader", smaller MP Megatron, MP Coneheads, small G1 Sharkticon, enlarged MP Convoy trailer).

    If iGear were simply doing their own original designs or designs that were merely derivative or simply not based on a toy Haskara own, there wouldn't be a problem getting their crap into online stores.

    I got a good laugh out of the email when I read it. There is very little chance any US stores would take a chance on stocking their IP "borrowing" products.

    If they'd put out original stuff, then TFSource and BBTS would carry those items like they've already done.

    LOL! This is about the funniest thing I've heard all day. Hasbro would cock block them so hard if they tried to make mass retail in the US. Perhaps they should come up with their own designs and not reverse engineer the works of others? That and they would fail miserably with their prices and collecter focused market.
