    Its kinda sad that hasbro thought this preschool line could replace robot heroes. There is no reason why they couldn't do both especially since other toys lines are starting to do robot hero type figures. WWE has the rumblers and even DC universe has a heroes type line. There seems to be market for these things but hasbro no longer wants a piece of it.

    Of course, it all depends on if it sells. Hasbro tried from 2007 - 2009, I'd say that's long enough for it to prove to be unprofitable.

    The only market for it is for Marvel. All the others didn't sell. And let's be fair here. The Mattel WWE rumblers and DCU action league just started this year. It'll take a while before anyone can see how they do.

    RHs didn't do well, sadly. Hopefully these will do better. (there always seems to be a market for Preschool-level transforming TFs)
