Was pondering something the other night... Would Hasbro not make more money on, well hell every toy line they make, not just transformers, if they quit wasting money and time on what is obvious crap shelf warmer molds, spamming us with stupid repaints and made better repaints/remolds. Granted with classics 1, 2 and 3.0 it is much better. this Hunt for the Decepticons line is shameful however, I also understand you need some bright and odd colors to attract the younger crowds, got no problem with that in general. I also know your not going to hit paydirt on every mold all the time, I am not delusional, but it just seems like they feel compelled to produce 2,3 of every 10 molds that will just go to waste. That being said, my biggest dumbfounding comes from the distribution process, sending popular toys to more cities instead of just the 150 that always seem to get them, and on that same note, actually shipping later waves to more than those same 150 cities, It just seems logical to me that sales would boom if they used more common sense in their production and distribution practices, as the product would actually be there to buy, call me crazy... The town I live in is not huge, but its no where near small either, and we have not received more than wave one of any current lines while some places are on wave 4 of scouts and such. why let all those sales just get flushed away?!? and I know people buy transformers around here when they are not spammed with the same crap for over a year. I see the popular molds vanish like houdini.. if they ever show up.. When the new lines are shipped here they do move, untill everyone in the area already has everything they need then they just sit there and no new pieces arrive so sales are just lost. I can't be 100% off base here.. I am curious to see what anyone else thinks.
