    Thanks for that, that was very enlightening.
    So at last we know that it really isn't Hasbro who's to blame when country x doesn't stock line y.

    That was a pretty good read. Thanks for the heads up on it.

    I thought that would be pretty obvious. If Hasbro could, they would sell everything and anything in every country, in every store, but nowadays it's the retailers who decide what their chain will pick up.

    Yeah, it should be obvious but fans still lay the blame at Hasbro's door more often then not.

    Thanks for all the kind words! Yes, we were extremely lucky to get in touch with him, and I'm very proud that we are able to share all of this with the online community.

    Even though it's a bit non-US centered, it's still pretty interesting stuff.

    I'm kinda sad to have to point this out, but this is the 3th or 4th time I post something here that might be quite interesting for other fans to read, but not being "accepted" as being front-paged as actual news.

    I'm sure it's just a coincidense that this only happens to items I bring up, but it's kind of discouraging, especially since I've been such an advocate of TFW2005's excellent news coverage. TFW2005 has always been very forthcoming in accepting other sites' existance and sharing content with others, so this puzzles me. I guess I'll just go back and play in "my neck of the woods" again...

    My apologies for ranting in this thread.
