    Filled it out. Interesting questions there, I expect Hasbro will take the feedback into account for future lines. :)

    I mentioned Alternators several times. If enough of us do it maybe they will take the hint.

    Filled it out. It somewhat surprised me when I actually stopped to think about how much a year I spend on TFs.

    Yeah, I think it's more of a survey for adult collectors then.

    That was quite a good survey. I enjoy surveys, for some reason.

    Though I'm surprised their maximum for "how much do you spend" was 200$ and up.

    I'm sure a lot of people on this site spend more than that annually easily.

    That was a very comprehensive survey. Very interesting indeed.

    Every time the fanbase gets inflated in its opinion of how influential and important it is to the brand, I think of the fact that the max dollars spent on these surveys is usually "$200 or more", which is laughable to most of us.

    I think it shows that the number of people who spend $200 or more a year on Transformers is such a minority, it's just not statistically important to measure... let alone those of us who spend thousands a year.

    I filled it out and yes, I was surprised $200 was the highest listed amount. Apprently whoever made this survery doesn't know too well how much a collector really spends in a year. I was expecting maybe "$1000 or above" to be the last choice.

    You know, that may actually be a bigger problem then it seems. This may sound ignorant to those who "know everything about Hasbro and their decision making process", but assuming that on a multiple choice questionaire like this, the choices are what you think is the 4 or 5 most common. So, if they think that around 75% of collectors buy LESS then $200 a year, then maybe their popular estimation of "collectors only make up 10% of our market" is way off. Afterall, I have no idea how they know that when I buy Univers Prowl that I am a collector. Or it could just be that the survery maker didn't really know all too well what to put. I don't know.
