    Hasbro's PR department shared something with us over at Unicron.com.

    For those going to Botcon, it's pretty cool. I wonder if the items ordered from HTS will have the same sticker?

    OMG AFA EVERYTHING! You know it'll happen.

    Seriously though, that's pretty cool for the MISB folks.

    Besides the PR that BotCon is clearly trying to do here (and good for them), this is something we've known about since the brochures were released.

    As the brochure says:

    This may be why stores aren't selling the product THEY "ACCIDENTLY" put out...

    I know I'll be picking up all the Bumblebee stuff that have the sticker. I'll buy the rest when I return home from Botcon. I don't want to deal with packing up a bunch of movie figures I'll be able to buy at retail as soon as I step off the plane.

    There seems to be a trend of an announcement every "working" day. I hope this continues.

    The stores are locked into a street date by Hasbro. That is why they aren't selling those toys that are accidently put out.

    They sold 'em last time they were released early. And that fred meyers storesold the figures to a customer just last week. I understand that they have a contract to abide by, but if their employee's slip up in some way, whether its not realising that they are puttuing out the wrong product or even if they are, they should still sell that item. It just seems fair. What if it was a 6 or 7 year old kid spending b_day $$, finds the new OP gets to the register and they say, I'm really sorry kiddo, but we just can't sell you this figure. They look like ass's and the kid feels like crap that he can't have his new toy. It wasn't his fault it, and others are on the shelf and I think that the store should kind of be obligated to sell the figure. Again, I understand they are under contract, but its still their own fault for letting product get out early. I'm just sayin..

    So if someone got ahold of a bunch of those special addition stickers and slapped them all over the Walmart purchased ROTF toys, you think they'd turn a profit pushing that stuff on the eBay?

    Sadly... probably....
