This is speculation on my part based on rumors I have been hearing the last few weeks, but this latest e-mail from BBTS has me thinking that the whispers might be true. Similar to what has been happening in relation to Botcon 2012, is this sale a sign that the crackdown by Hasbro on 3rd party products is now hitting the online retailers that buy directly from them? Here is the e-mail from BBTS: "CLEARANCE SALE - THIRD PARTY TRANSFORMING TOYS - SAVE 25% Nearly every Third Party item currently in stock is now on sale at 25% off! Take a look through the product list and be sure to browse the full menus as well. There are some great deals here, including 25% off previous sale prices, so be sure to take a look. " What do you think? Is BBTS getting out of the 3rd party product business due to pressure from Hasbro or is this just another sale?
